It gets better as there are only a few easy ingredients needed. A stick of unsalted butter, melted, one bag of pretzel sticks, a packet of powdered Ranch dressing mix, and a dash of Cayenne pepper. Mix all the ingredients and bake for one hour. You can also microwave them for four to five minutes. For more in-depth instructions check out ranch [pretzel stick recipe].
Irish Soda Bread
Yes with St. Patrick’s Day on the way this is sure to be a popular dish. This is also better homemade than store-bought. So let’s see what it takes to make this fluffy, tasty masterpiece. For this recipe, you will need flour, granulated sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, softened butter, buttermilk, sour cream, large whisked egg, and raisins.
Many substitutions can be made to these ingredients if you are having trouble finding anything. For example, buttermilk can be replaced with a mixture of milk and either lemon juice or white vinegar.

Crafts and other DIY Projects
If you are into making things yourself this is for you. On Hello Miss Martha you can find all sorts of fun activities. One of the more exciting and cute kid-friendly ones is the Ghost Hunt. Sounds spooky. This is not only for Halloween but maybe a fun sleepover idea as well.
You can print the ghost hunt instructions on the site as well to make it easier. Let’s begin with the basics. Print out the spooky ghosts. Then glue popsicle sticks to some of the ghosts. For the ghosts being placed inside use double-sided tape to easily stick them to walls.
Now let’s hide those ghosts. Try and find tricky spots or ones that are easy to spot depending on the age level that is playing. Parents are of course free to help out and guide the players to the ghosts. It is all about having fun and not a race.
Do not forget to create a Spooky Basket to help collect all the ghosts, set up some key rules, and include a spooky story or a chant, maybe a witchy spell.
