25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable.

Meatless Monday: Pantry Pasta with Garlic and Green Olives


This meatless recipe is the basic version of a dish I make all the time. I'm not a huge fan of tomato-based pasta sauce, so I frequently toss fresh-cooked pasta with butter or olive oil and go from there by adding anything I want like olives, artichoke hearts, cheese, and seafood or grilled chicken breast.

I named it Pantry Pasta because I literally use whatever I have in my pantry that could go well with pasta. This dish is so easy to make, it really doesn't require a recipe. Simply boil your pasta as usual, drain and return to the pot, then toss in the oil (or butter if you prefer) and stir in the toppings. I love using stuffed green olives simply because I always have them on hand.

If you want to make this meatless dish healthier, use a veggie pasta and toss with fresh garden veggies or cooked greens. Add in kale or spinach to the boiling pasta water for the last minute or two. To make it a meaty pasta dish, add cubed chicken breast or shrimp by pan searing them in a skillet and cooking thoroughly before adding them to the noodles. Enjoy!
