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…

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes


I first made these stuffed tomatoes for a brunch, and they were a huge hit. It's the kind of dish that if you serve it to a crowd, nearly everyone demands the recipe before they leave. I love it because it's so affordable and fairly easy to make, and of course because it's so delicious! It's a perfect little appetizer for entertaining.



INGREDIENTS
  • 4oz grated Parmesan
  • 2.25 oz black olives
  • a few tbs olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 cartons of fresh cherry tomatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use a pairing knife to hollow out the tomatoes (on the end opposite of the stem side). They'll naturally stand up if you place them stem-side down.  

2. Mince the olives then combine all of the ingredients. Whenever I make a dish like this with filling and Italian flavors, I love to premix the filling a day or so in advance and keep it in the fridge until the day of the event. All of the flavors seem to meld together and get nice and fragrant. 

3. It's a little tricky to fill small cherry tomatoes. I used a small spoon and the curved part of my pairing knife to smash the filling down into the tomatoes. Enjoy!
