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. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

Snickerdoodle-Toffee Chip Cookies


One of my favorite cookies at Christmas time is the snickerdoodle. The combination of a traditional sugar cookie and cinnamon make me feel like the holidays have officially begun. Don't get me wrong, I love decorating gingerbread cookies for Christmas, but when it comes to eating Christmas cookies, pass the snickerdoodles! This year I wanted to switch up the flavor (and perk up store-bought snickerdoodle cookie mix), so I added toffee chips. The result was nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Whether you want a delicious new cookie to give as easy Christmas gifts, or if you simply want to add a new flavor to your Christmas cookies this year, try my semi-homemade Snickerdoodle Toffee Chip cookies.

Ingredients:
  • 1 package snickerdoodle cookie mix
  • 1 C toffee bits
  • cinnamon sugar for coating cookies
*If you want to start from scratch, here is my favorite Soft Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe.


Mix the snickerdoodle cookie dough according to the directions on the package (or make sugar cookie dough from scratch) then stir in 1 cup toffee bits. Roll the dough into uniform 1&1/2" balls and roll in cinnamon sugar (if making from scratch, use ratio of 1/2 sugar: 1/2 ground cinnamon). Place dough balls on cookie sheet a few inches apart and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on a rack before packaging.
