Lambrusco’z is especially "spooktacular" on Halloween so they stopped by to give a sample of what to expect when you visit this Brookside gem. "With Halloween falling on a weekday, it can be tough to get kids home, changed into costumes, and settled down enough to get them to eat dinner before the trick or treat sweets," Chef Shelly Hayslett said. "I have a fun, easy recipe to get them involved. Seriously, my 'Mummy loves you' pizza takes only minutes to prepare and is fun for kids to make!"
“Mummy loves you” pizza Recipe:
1 sliced French bread baguette
1 cup hamburger meat (browned)
1 pint Lambrusco’z garlic cheese melt $8.99
1 jar pizza sauce
¼ lb provolone or mozzarella slices (cut into strips)
A few pimento stuffed olives and a few black olives for garnish.
(Any fresh veggies that your kids will eat. We like fresh spinach!)
Place sliced French bread on a baking sheet in a circular shape. (Use parchment to make a template, if needed.) spread bread rounds with garlic cheese melt, pizza sauce, top with pepperoni or browned hamburger meat…now the fun part…Start layering on the cheese slices, mummy style, leaving a space for the eyes. Make “eyes” with sliced black olives topped with pimento stuffed olives add to pizza after baking. Bake at 350 until cheese begins to melt.
Let cool for a few minutes before letting the kids rip ol’ mummy apart!
"My 'Candy Corn' cookies are a perfect snack for fall. Bake them for Halloween, then keep a batch in the fridge, ready to slice and bake for drop-in company," she said.
“CANDY CORN” Cookies Recipe:
Your favorite sugar cookie recipe (store bought works too)
Orange and yellow food colorings
Separate dough into 3 equal portions. Add yellow coloring to one part, orange to the second and leave the third plain. Layer dough with white on the bottom, orange in the middle and yellow on top. Wrap dough round and place in refrigerator overnight. Cut dough into ¼ inch slice, cut slice into triangles to resemble candy corn. Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes.
(Add lemon extract to yellow layer and orange extract to orange layer for a more flavorful cookie.)

"We do Thanksgiving dinner just the way you want it, ready to heat and eat! Check out the menu online and place your order before November 17th. You’ll be glad you did!" Hayslett said.
