Nurture You and Yours with Tasty Treats and Laughter and Good Cheer!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Chocolate Zucchini Cake (it’s a lot like carrot cake)

Make Chocolate Zucchini Cake then fallow the recipe for a fun night from last year’s Halloween poem below.


The ghouls, goblins and ghosties

come out to be creepy and sneaky

about my gardens rows and edges.

Lock up the cat, chain down the dogs,

tell all the children to beware!

October’s wind blows in

terrible creatures with long noses,

fingers and toesies.

of all things young and growin’.

Hang lavenders and apples

around the windows,

throw salt and sages

under all the fences.

Go inside behind locked doors

and drink toastie

of hot coca and marshmallow roasties,

laugh so loud and cheery

you scare away the fierest ghoulies,

goblins and ghosties!

      1. None of them have to be “spiritual” — only nurturing! Even the most “spiritually – minded” need some laughter! (in my opinion) … I know for me — I DO NOT laugh often enough! Something I have to diligently work on! 😀


    1. Isadora so good to here from you. For some reason WP was protecting me from you. I finally stopped that!
      Wow high praise 😀
      So happy you found my cake and poem nurturing! I made two this week but only one with tasty worms.


      1. 😃 Tasty worms …. I wonder if WP thought I was a tasty worm you needed to avoid. LOL No worries I have that happen to my reader all of a sudden too. I’m a little too much of a novice to figure it all out. Usually, I back track from other blogs I’ve posted or from comments left on the challenge I’m doing. Glad to see you here, as well. Hope you are well and enjoying your yummy cake. 😍


  1. The cake looks really good. But . . . you said on one post that “wish you could have been there” to eat it. Does that mean the party is over??
    And in our house hold, Mary was disappointed, but I was happy about the the way the series turned out. Great job SF.
