Let’s Talk Tea – A Halloween Round Up

Skill Up Skillet’s October has been the busiest yet! With five, count ’em, FIVE Nightmare Before Christmas themed recipes, a couple of fandom tea reviews from CuppaGeek, and a Walking Dead Bloody Brain Jello Shot recipe with a bang… needless to say you’ll have plenty of fare to choose from for this year’s festivities. We’ve even been interviewed and reviewed by two different sites! Let’s do a Halloween Round Up!

Featured Foodie FridayStarting off with one of the blog’s biggest achievements to date: Patty from Chocolate Chip Studio interviewed Skill Up Skillet for her Featured Foodie Friday series! According to Patty:

If you’re into gaming, you are absolutely going to LOVE this week’s Featured Foodie! When I first met Leisel and learned more about her food perspective, I thought, ‘WOW! To combine gaming with food is probably one of THE most original food blogs I’ve seen yet.’

Blogging since 2014, Leisel is just awesome and I love that she makes it fun!

Skill Up Skillet also received a favorable review from Jason of Opinionated Man. You can read his review HERE.

CuppaGeekWe also teamed up with Nichole of CuppaGeek for a couple of Halloween-y fandom tea reviews. Nichole does not disappoint! Check out her review of Walking Dead fandom tea Kiss My Crossbow and a Nightmare Before Christmas inspired Pumpkin King Tea.

Without further ado, on to the first Skill Up Skillet Halloween Round Up!

Remember this old favorite? My Walking Dead Bloody Brain Jello Shot recipe looks positively gruesome and is only too appropriate. There’s still time to whip up a batch for Halloween!

    1. Geez… Ideally… nothing! I want nothing more than to pick up dinner from my family’s pizzeria and be lazy and not have to adult. I have adulted SO HARD this month.


      1. Sounds legit, I would conquer some crab legs. After recreating some gourmet mac n’ cheese last night with chipotle BBQ chicken and sauteed onions last night I’m done. Preferably for the month.

        That sounds like a badass thing to say until you realize there’s only one day left in the month.
