Halloween Recap: USC vs. OR, Cookies, and Little Red

Happy November everyone. Hope you all had fabulous Halloween Weekends!

Ours started out with USC's Homecoming Game against #1 ranked Oregon.

USC lost, but we had a great time at the game. We tailgated with USC Alumni and our friends from Oregon who were in town.


Now I'm rooting for the Ducks to go all the way to the National Championship!


Sunday morning I made Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Chip cookies. It's a little tradition of mine to make cookies on Halloween, I think it satisfies my Halloween sweet tooth!


I think I need to buy some new baking sheets. Why?

I made 1/2 the cookies on one kind of darker color cookie sheet and the other 1/2 on a lighter cookie sheet and they turned out totally different.

The cookies made on the darker sheet turned out like this:


The ones on the lighter cookie sheet turned out like this:


The ones from the darker sheet were much fluffier and rounded. I never realized the kind of cookie sheet matters so much! That said, what kind/brand of cookie sheet is your favorite? I am totally going to buy a couple of new cookie sheets.


Finally, my Little Red Riding Hood costume turned out pretty cute!

This is me before heading over to our church's Halloween Carnival to pass out candy to the kiddos.


The Mr. was an "80s Rock Star" like Axel Rose or something. Hilarious.


You can't really see my boots, but these are my new suede boots from DSW. I love them! DSW is go-to place for boots.

How was your Halloween Weekend?

Great costumes! Even though they're pricey, I swear by the Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch stuff. The.Best.

Love the costumes!!! I bought these rubber cookie sheet things that go on mine and it makes them cook even all the way through no matter what cookie sheet they are on.

Super fun Halloween costume! I am a new reader of your blog- I've really enjoyed it and you inspired me as I was starting my own Blog. I'm from Oregon and went to the U of O, so the game on Saturday was a great one! Keep up the good posts!!

Sounds like it was a great weekend! Sorry about USC- they put up one heck of a game. I was stressed watching in on TV! I too am glad to hear support for the Ducks, though. I have actually never been to DSW, I keep meaning to check them out!

Another vote for Williams-Sonoma goldtouch!

I prefer Pampered Chef's stones to baking sheets. Everything comes out perfectly on them from cookies to fries to chicken.

Classy Fab Sarah said...

It's so weird but I have literally tried every baking sheet on the planet... and I honestly just like the cheap generic ones I bought at bed bath and beyond. They are dark-colored, easy to clean and the cookies ALWAYS come out better on them. WIN WIN!

We gave out candy and then went for ice cream when we ran out of candy. figured "why not treat ourselves"? :P

Love your costumes! Cute!

Love your blog! I recommend the Pampered Chef stone. Everything cooks evenly and you can use it for so many things other than just cookies. I never mess up when I use it and I am not the best cook. = )

Can I just say how much I love your costume? It's so cute! I love that you added tights and boots to make it more appropriate and not slut-tastic. Love!
