12 of the Garlickiest Recipes We Have (for Keeping Away Vampires)

October 30, 2015

You have a little over 24 hours to figure out what you're going to be for Halloween, put the finishing touches on your very (sort of) grown-up Halloween party, and track down some spooky movies to rent. But we'd be remiss if we didn't advise you on staying safe this Halloween: Hello, it's vampire season. And we just want you to be prepared. Ready your stakes (and your steaks), and stock up on garlic—and then make some of our garlickiest recipes, which are almost guaranteed to keep away any vampires, not to mention anyone else who gets too close. (Couldn't hurt to stock up on the breath mints, too.)

Always a winner: http://lollipopsicle.net/?s=mummy <br />Even better if you have time to make a batch of Roberta's pizza dough recipe, which will yield you two mummies!
