In celebration of Halloween, this Cape Cod Mom wanted to share 2 of the favorite household treats in our home this time of year. The old dirt pudding and gummy worms is a tried and true favorite plus it is fun to measure and create them together. We also added the Cat Litter box this year and the kids really thought it was hilarious! The hubby even came home thinking it was real at first. Imagine the surprise when he saw us digging in eating "litter"!
What are some favorite creative treats in your home?
Cat Litter Cake: Using a clean new cat box, two sheet cakes, frosting, crushed graham crackers and melted tootsie rolls for yes the cat poop affect
Dirt Pudding Cup with Worms: use chocolate cookies, pudding and gummy worms for this childhood favorite. Tip: you can add some cool whip too!

We love this recipe that one of our Cape Cod Mom readers (and hopefully soon to be regular contributor), Brittany has submitted to us! We love crock pot recipes and this one sure looks fantastic and tasty, perfect for the colder weather settling in! You can almost smell it! Nom Nom!
Take 1 package chicken tenderloins, 1 package sliced mushrooms, 1 package grape tomatoes sliced and put them all
in crock pot.
Add olive oil & chicken stock, enough to cover the ingredients. Add salt & pepper to taste. Also add 1 clove of elephant garlic.
Cook in a crock pot for 6 hours approximately.
Half a spaghetti squash, seed it & rub the inside with butter. Cover with tinfoil and place in cookie sheet with the open side up. Depending on the size of spaghetti squash, bake for a minimum of 1 hour or a Maximum of 1.5 hours - until you can easily scoop out the spaghetti like insides.
Put spaghetti squash on plate cover in chicken mushroom mixture from crock pot and enjoy!!!

This tasty recipe was sent to us from a fellow friend, fan and mom: Brittany! She has been making a real conscious effort in her home to prepare healthy food choices for her family. She sent me this amazing recipe and pictures yesterday. The whole family loved it. Let us know what you think!
Chicken Tenderloins: sauté them in almond oil and coconut oil
with jumbo garlic slices, fresh basil leaves and ground black pepper.
Once the chicken has browned: add 1-2 ounces of fresh homemade garlic dressing.
