Cauldron Queso

I realized in horror last week that I have basically no Halloween content here on The Rose Table, which all of my friends would find positively shocking. I adore Halloween so I wanted to rectify the lack of Halloween recipes by adding a few of my favorites. I’m delighted to present you with a total…

Ghosts in the Graveyard

An updated Halloween classic I’ve eaten Ghosts in the Graveyard almost every Halloween of my life. My mom made it at all of my Halloween parties and I continue the tradition today. It just wouldn’t be Halloween without it! I’ve updated the classic dirt pudding dish with freshly whipped cream instead of the whipped topping…

Dinner Noir

Do you ever just have a dinner party concept strike you like lightning? That very phenomenon happened to me recently while I was typing away at work. The entire menu just sort of came to me all at once. I love this because it just so happens to be a classy Halloween fete. Here’s how I…

Like my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, these mini cheesecakes are pure…

Buy candy you actually enjoy and turn the leftovers into delicious treats! Y’all know I’m not a candy/canned/processed food person but ’tis the season and one Kit Kat Milkshake or Almond Joy Chocolate…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread with Orange Glaze

There’s just something about pumpkin and orange and chocolate that makes me want to do cartwheels across the living room. I start craving this recipe in July! This pumpkin bread is incredibly moist. The brown sugar gives it a unique depth of flavor, the chocolate chips are a pleasant surprise when you slice into the loaf, and…

Estate Sale Treasures

I have loved antiquing since I was little, tagging along with my parents. I just love the history behind everything. I frequent antique shops (my favorites are in East Texas) but until yesterday, I had never been to an estate sale. I’ve been missing out! For just $45, I found the following treasures: What treasures…
