October 13, 2014 2:31 pm

You may think you know Northwest River Park, but hop aboard the Ghost Train and you're sure to uncover some spooky secrets. On this haunted hayride, participants will partake in a 30-minute storytelling tour through the park's haunted woods—if you're brave enough to make it to the end, that is!

Mysterious things happen in the "dark of the park," so come ready to be surprised and spooked around every corner. Listen closely and you may hear the hum of the engine of the real Ghost Train that used to pass through Northwest River Park. Though this tour is known to be a little scary, it's still appropriate for children, so bring the family along!

Admission to the tour is $9 on Thursdays and $10 on Fridays and Saturdays. This seasonal fright fest near Northwest might even be the highlight of your Halloween season! Be sure to come dressed in your Halloween costume!

Fall in Love with Fall Baking

Fall in Love with Fall Baking

10/7/2014

Wait, is it Fall yet? The warm afternoons have me confused. I love the crisp and cool fall mornings, but by mid-day, the temperature turns up. So since the mornings have fall-like weather, let’s stay there!

Breakfast can always start the day off right. But if you are like me, you’re thinking, “I don’t have the time to prepare breakfast!” Well, you can make something the night before or even Sunday afternoon to prepare for the week. So when we do have a fall morning you are prepared. Slice and warm up a piece of bread or indulge in a muffin and top it with a teaspoon (or however much you please, I won’t judge you) of butter to melt over it. That will definitely start your day off right. I am sure the family will love you forever!

Try out some of these baked goods:

Apple Muffins with Caramel Frosting

Cinnamon Streusel Quick Bread

Fall Harvest Muffins- This has to be healthy, right?!

Pumpkin Pecan Crunch Muffins

Chocoholic Muffins- I.LOVE.CHOCOLATE. YUM!

Do you have a favorite bread or muffin recipe? Share!

Warm and Delicious Regards,
