If you spend any time at all on Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, there’s a good chance that you’ve already encountered various Butterbeer recipes floating on the net, the latest version of which is the Starbucks Butterbeer hack. And like any curious Harry Potter fan, you’ve probably been dying to try it. I know I was.

But unfortunately, it’s not the simplest thing to order, and there’s a good chance that a muggle barista will stare at you weirdly for dictating your instructions like a deranged potions master.

Ordering it is much simpler than the recipe leads you to believe.

Chez Karine’s offers a nice selection of flavors which will leave a macaron aficionado spellbound.
Halloween is my favorite holiday. While Christmas still trumps it when it comes to food, Halloween is king when it comes to fun. I mean, ghosts, ghouls, vampires (non-sparkly ones) and zombies? Sign me up! Unfortunately, my new role as mom to a very active baby leaves me with little time to enjoy the festivities. So, instead of preparing a bento, allow me to put up a round up of scary bentos from Halloweens past and share a rousing Happy Halloween to all!
