Happy Fall Y’all!

One of my most favorite times of year is fall!  I love the cool weather, the colorful fall leaves and especially entertaining on Halloween.   Our home has always been the landing spot for Halloween tricks and treats.  Our family and friends always get together at our house and have a great time.  So needless to say October 31st is a much-anticipated holiday around the Langner house.

We decorate trailers for hayrides, costume competitions, pumpkin painting, ALWAYS chilidogs and each year it is so much fun to come up with new and delicious treats for our guest.  Hope you will enjoy some of the recipes we will be doing this year for Halloween in your home as well.  So from my family to yours, “Happy Fall Y’all!”
