while I’ve not had a chance to sit down & fully read andrewgr.am‘s Uncommon Photographer’s Guide to Photography, I’ve somewhat started with the “just take pictures” instruction.

Halloween treats

yes, this is at least a week late, but I wanted to show off the great treats everyone contributed.

from the top: piped chocolate webs & pumpkins decorated with dried fruits, pumpkin cupcakes with carrot juice coloured coconut oil frosting, home made Jell-O & cream gummy worms and gelatin & black cherry juice gummy worms.

the party was a hit, the kids had a great time, and I didn’t feel bad about the treat options available that K could eat.  score!

Wormy!

red wigglers

thanks to this great recipe, our home-made Halloween treat worked amazingly well. K brought some to preschool the next day and the kids & teacher honestly thought she’d brought real worms!

“Happy” Halloween

multiple allergies, plus trying to heal “leaky gut” and reduce possibilities for problems down the road = very challenging at candy season.  hard enough for us adults; try explaining to a 3 year old why she can’t have that cupcake, or those candies, or… and explaining to friends and family why it’s not “oh just a little treat, it won’t matter”.

what to do?

here are some stellar suggestions/recipes for families in similar situations – I’m so going to try some of these!

ohlardy’s home made from scratch non-jello gummy worms

20somethingallergies’ a few really awesome non-candy sweet tooth alternatives

hellyeahitsvegan’s vegan pumpkin cupcakes with coconut oil frosting

homemademommy’s three ingredient maple pecan candies (I’ll try with coconut oil & almonds)

sealemon’s DIY slime (part I) and DIY slime (part II) for a completely food-free fun way to entertain halloween style

and my personal favourite: glow sticks!
