1) Best Halloween trick: hit the dollar store to stock up on fake black roses, spiders and webs, spooky ravens, plastic pumpkins, scary masks & costumes.

2) Show ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Poltergeist’ or ‘Beetlejuice’ on the TV.

3) Have kids decorate dollar store pillowcases as trick-or-treat bags.

4) Host a costume contest or create an old-school haunted house in a dark room, eyeballs (grapes), brains (spaghetti) and all!

Banoffee Pie with Crunchy Chocolate Topping

WowMeWednesday

For those of you who aren’t from the UK, yes, this perfect dessert recipe is “Banoffee Pie,” a slurring of the words banana and toffee. As classically British as 007 and a stiff upper lip, banoffee is a sticky, seductive pie of creamy toffee and slices of sweet banana. Lisa, a longtime Spice Girls fan, wanted to do a little oomph to this already decadent dessert, so she crowned it with a crunchy top layer of graham crackers coated in milk chocolate and toffee bits.

To someone who, at times, avoids the kitchen, the idea of skipping a steakhouse in favor of making steak at home sounds like lunacy, right? Not after I made this 5-star recipe. So simple yet elegant enough for entertaining, these juicy, tender strip loin steaks are smothered in a velvety peppercorn sauce. The subtle zip of green peppercorns combined with rich beef broth, zesty red currant jelly and the distinctive flavor of whiskey make this sauce alone worth staying home for…that, and eating scrumptious steak while wearing sweatpants.

Like the classic dessert, moist vanilla cake is layered with a creamy pudding filling and topped with a smooth chocolate ganache. This terrific trio of textures and flavors combine to serve up Boston in every bite.
