Blistered Haricot Verts (Extra Fine Green Beans) with Golden Mushrooms

Green beans are my favorite green vegetable!  Plus, they just seem to go with most entrees.  We enjoy these scrumptious blistered haricot verts frequently, with or without the mushrooms.  However, the golden mushrooms are so fabulous, they do add a special dimension to the recipe!

Versatile and easy, you'll never have to think twice about what your side dish will be with these fantastic blistered green beans and golden mushrooms in your repertoire!

Quick and Easy Eggs In A Cup

Whether you are in a rush or have limited cooking don't need a stove top to enjoy a nice soft scrambled egg or omelette. All you need is a microwave!  While staying in the guest suite of a relative's home recently, I prepared several eggs in a cup with various additions.  I shot a couple of photos with my phone after preparing one while there, as I did not bring my camera with me.

These eggs in a cup are fluffy and delicious, with or without cheese, or any other additional ingredients.  The one in the photos below is made with mozzarella cheese; however, you can use whatever cheese you prefer or have on hand. This method is so simple and delicious, that it is actually my favorite way to prepare them at home.

Eggs in a cup have been popular for some time now; but, if you haven't tried them yet, you'll be delightfully surprised how easy and good they are!  It might take a time or two to adjust the cooking time to your microwave; however, you'll find the method incredibly quick and easy!

                                                My Favorite Way...
                                     With Lots of Gooey, Melted Cheese!

Spooky Halloween Ghosts and Ghouls White Chocolate-Coated Pretzels

I don't care for gory Halloween decorations and treats, so I fell in love with these adorable and scrumptious spooky white chocolate-coated pretzels when I first saw them on the internet.  I had so much fun making them with my grandson!  We chose to use chocolate chips for the eyes, rather than the candy eyeballs as suggested in the original recipe; however, either are truly cute.

I love how easy these delightful and delectable ghosts and ghouls are to make, and you will too.  Plus, who doesn't love sweet and salty!

                                                  EEK! Watch Out...
                                             They're Gonna Gobble Us!
