PUBLISHER'S NOTE | October 2015

TRICKS, TREATS & CREEPY EATS Halloween is almost here and The Kleivo’s could not be more excited. We love everything about it– the tricks, the treats and all things in between, except for maybe the creepy masked guy who runs around our neighborhood terrorizing children (and adults) while waving a running chainsaw in the air. For now, we’ll just file that one under ‘tricks’. Creepy, right?

Now let’s get to the good stuff– the treats. I’m no Betty Crocker but the more festive the cupcakes the better and these days you can find dessert confetti and toppings galore like never before which makes a mom’s job that much easier. (Phew!) Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve come across the creepiest Halloween cupcake list ever and would love to share it with you. Some recipes seem easy while others look a little bit more involved, but the kids will love them and that’s what it’s all about.

Pictured is the Autumn Tree, the least creepiest of the bunch, but there are many more to choose from including Brain Cupcakes, Graveyard Cupcakes, Jack Skellington Cupcakes and more– something creative for every level of gore. Just visit our website and click to view. Send us a photo of your finished treats at for us to share in social media.

This issue is filled with lots of fall fun– from Autumn Happenings to Fright Fests throughout Chicagoland. It is also The Kitchen Issue. You’ll love reading about the latest tips and trends when it comes to kitchen redesign, space planning and getting your kitchen party-ready– just in time for the holidays. How perfect is that!?

Get baking, get planning and #HappyFall!
