Ingredients: Hot dogs, crescent roll dough, mustard/ketchup.

Ingredients: Fresh pumpkin, onion, garlic, vegetable broth, cream, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.

Ingredients: Bananas, white chocolate, chocolate chips.
Instructions: Cut bananas in half. Melt white chocolate. Dip bananas into the melted chocolate and place them on parchment paper. Add chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. Freeze until set.
Ingredients: Lime sherbet, lemon-lime soda, green food coloring (optional).
Instructions: In a large bowl, place scoops of lime sherbet. Pour over the lemon-lime soda. Add a few drops of green food coloring if a deeper green is desired. Stir gently and serve immediately.
Ingredients: Your favorite brownie mix, white icing.
Instructions: Prepare brownies as directed. Once cooled, use the white icing to draw circles. Using a toothpick, draw lines from the center outward to create a spiderweb pattern.
