Witches Mushroom Brew with Skulls

This Halloween soup is so easy to make and is an ideal Halloween's menu starter. It is a light and healthy soup made with button mushrooms and sweet potato and to make mushroom skulls you won't need any fancy tools – just a knife and a straw and of course a pair of little helping hands. Children would enjoy this fun project.

Tahini cookies with black sesame seeds

These cookies are eggs and dairy free. They are tender as if they were made of the finest flour while I used regular unbleached flour. Because of their unusual texture they taste like cross between cookies and halva. With only a few ingredients, these tiny cookies are so easy to make in last minute, though interesting enough to impress the queasiest guests.


1 cup tahini
½ cup brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 – 3 tablespoon black sesame seeds

Prepare dough mixing all the ingredients except sesame seeds, in bowl. Cover the bowl and let it cool in a freezer for 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Shape the dough into 32 balls and roll each ball, top side only into a black sesame seeds. Bake them on cookie sheets for 10 minutes. Cool thoroughly and keep refrigerated for up to a week.
Makes 32 cookies.
