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…

A Delicious Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie


Pumpkin pie is one of those dishes I absolutely have to have on Thanksgiving. There are several different ways to make a classic pumpkin pie dairy-free. You can use canned coconut milk, silken tofu, or any dairy-free milk substitute like soy milk. I used lactose-free milk simply because that was what I had on hand; so this recipe is great if you have lactaid, soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk in a carton.

I used the Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix because, well, this recipe is supposed to be easy. Yeah, I see all of you last-minute readers googling "easy last-minute pumpkin dessert". I feel ya! Truth be told, I used store-bought pie crust for these pies. Though if you have time to make the crust from scratch, here's a basic pie crust recipe with tips.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 30 oz can Easy Pumpkin Pie Mix
  • 2/3 cup lactose-free milk (or dairy-free option like soy milk)
  • 4 large egg yokes
  • 1 tsp liquid maple flavoring (optional)
*makes one 8 or 9" pie or one large deep-dish pie

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Prepare your pie crusts and heat oven to 425 F. I'm glad I used two small 8" pans instead of a deep dish. The filling cooked through nicely, and the bottom crust was nice and crispy.

2. Blend the ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour into the pie pans and bake at 425 for 15 minutes then bake at 350 F for about 60 minutes. Enjoy!
