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.

Walking Dead Bloody Jello Shot Brains


Walkers at the perimeter… I reckon they’ll break through in about three days. If we don’t figure out something by then we’ll be in big trouble.

That’s right, the popular drama tv series The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, February 8th. And I’ve cooked up a batch of jelly filled jello shot brains to celebrate. These are particularly tasty and I found that the jelly center not only added a devilishly bloody looking twist, it complimented the taste of the jello shot perfectly.

The yield from this recipe depends a lot on the size of your mold. I only had one tray with four individual brain molds which held about a quarter of a cup each. A few silicone molds would be ideal for this, or one large mold would be really neat as well.

Also, anyone who knows me well knows that I am a jello shot fanatic. Though I’ve never made or eaten any before, I’ve always viewed them as an awesome edible art form. Seriously, Google ‘unique jello shots’ sometime. You’re welcome.

Be careful: Eating too many of these might make you feel a bit zombie-like tomorrow morning.

Ready? Let’s go.
