Around the Web

Happy Halloween, gang! It's been a minute since I did a recipe roundup, so I've got lots of yummy links to share! Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all of the amazing content out there on the internet, but I'm having fun using Pinterest to try and wrangle it all.

For the most exciting news first, Dixie Caviar's Football Sandwiches won Saveur Magazine's Home Cook Challenge. These tasty sliders are famous around my parts; I'm so excited they are finally getting the national attention they deserve! Be sure to bring them to your next tailgate to guarantee confessions of love and undying devotion.

Here's my latest at The Kitchn

I developed these Pumpkin Spiced Krispie Treats as a last minute Halloween snack, but the addition of warm and toasty spices make them perfect for any occasion all autumn long.

I may have saved my best Taiwanese recipe for last! This Beef Noodle Soup is pure global comfort food. The Asian Pickled Cabbage is pretty tasty, too

Recently it was "autumn fruit" week at The Kitchn, so I celebrated with my favorite fall flavor - Apples! For breakfast, try my homemade Apple-Cinnamon Toaster Strudels, which in my personal opinion are better than the real thing.

For dessert, try my spin on Baked Apple Dumplings.

Need a soothing pasta dish to feed a crowd? This Pastitsio a.k.a. Greek Pasta Bake should do the trick.

I love fall vegetables, but for some reason turnips don't seem to get a lot of love. These Glazed Turnips will impress even the pickiest eaters.

Here's my latest at Cooking Channel

I've amped up traditional Jalapeno Poppers by adding corn AND bacon. Try them baked or fried.

And elsewhere around the web

You all know my love for deep-frying. These potato rings with homemade buttermilk ranch just got added to my bucket list. (At Spoon Fork Bacon)

One of my favorite kitchen hobbies is making "processed" ingredients from scratch. I can't wait to try this homemade chocolate syrup. (At Brave Tart)

Chicken fried steak with cream gravy. Enough said. (At Use Real Butter)

Every girl needs a perfect vanilla cake. I made this a few weeks ago paired with a chocolate malted buttercream and it was perfection. (At Sweetapolita)

I'm a big fan of both the book and movie The Help. My aunt recently made Minnie's chocolate pie, which was fabulous. I want to try the fried chicken, as well. (At Food & Wine)

I've been contemplating starting a cookbook club for the ladies in my life. It seems I'm not the only one. (At Everyday Food and Tea and Cookies)

This is a great point from Marcella Hazan about why fresh isn't always better than canned. I completely agree. (At Educated Palate)

I can spend my whole life trying for these garlic-chopping skills (at New York Times)

I've never actually tasted chicken tikka masala but this post makes it look pretty damn good. (At Tasty Kitchen)
