Have a spooktacular Halloween!

The day's finally arrived! Halloween is here! I hope you're ready for the ghouls and goblins and Elsas and Spidermans who'll line up at your door. :)

Thanks to all the authors who came to party on my blog this month. If you haven't read through their interviews, you should - their spooky stories and ghostly encounters will give you the perfect chill for a dark All Hallow's Eve. I'm always surprised at just how many people have experiences that they can't explain. If I weren't already a believer, it would change my mind.

I had a wonderful surprise this month - Goddess, Awakened is now available in print!

*happy dances* 

I can't wait to hold a copy in my hands!

I came across this recipe, and it sounded yummy - and healthy! So I thought I'd share. I always love new treats, don't you?

PUMPKIN OATMEAL COOKIES



Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup raisins OR chocolate chips

Directions
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Lightly grease baking sheets. COMBINE flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. BAKE for 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned and set in centers. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Then gobble like ghouls!
