Happy Halloween From Sista’s Kitchen!


Who doesn’t love Old Fashion Dot Penny Candy? Last night while decorting Halloween Cookies I discoverd how crazy easy they are to make at home! As I cleaned up my work space I noticed perfectly shaped droplets of icing that broght me right back to my childhood days of shopping at Berthas Candy Store located on Gloucester’s Rocky Neck! As a child  Sugar Dot Candy were one of my most favorite penny candies sold!   

   At midnight After peeling off  and eating each and every dried dot shaped Royal Icing from my work space,  I decide to pip my left over Royal Icing onto a clean sheets of Parchment paper, in the same fashioned pattern I remebered buying at Berths On Rocky Neck! This morning I searched the internet for a clip art  shaped Corn Corn, and confected these adorable Candy Corn Shaped Sugar Treats!

 I can’t wait to  gift them tonight to a few Special Gobblins in my life during tonights Halloween Festivities! 

Fun, easy, and yummy  way to use up leftover Royal Icing! 


Isaac Asimov Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

“Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.”
Isaac Asimov (1920?-1992)


Born in Russia, Isaak Yudovich Ozimov immigrated to the United States with his parents at the age of three. A voracious reader of science fiction, he began writing as a pre-teen, selling his first piece in 1939 to Amazing Stories Magazine. He would go on to become one of the most prolific of sci-fi and hard science writers, publishing an astonishing 500 books in nine of the ten categories of the Dewey Decimal System, while simultaneously holding a tenured position as Professor of Biochemistry at Boston University. Recognized as one of the most brilliant men of his age, he was Vice President of Mensa, and opined that Carl Sagan and Marvin Minsky were the only two people he knew who were smarter than he. In his science fiction work he is perhaps best known for his Foundation Series and for I, Robot which propounds the Three Laws of Robotics, incorporated by an entire generation of writers from Roddenberry and Clarke to Ellison and Silverberg. He was a six-time winner of the Hugo Award and has a crater on Mars and an asteroid named in his honor.

From The New york Times- “Cod’s Continuing Decline Linked to Warming Gulf of Maine Waters”

Cod’s Continuing Decline Linked to Warming Gulf of Maine Waters


Rapid warming in the Gulf of Maine contributed to the collapse of cod fishing in New England, and might help explain why the cod population has failed to recover, even though fishing has largely ceased, according to a new study.

But the quotas, the study’s authors say, were based on population estimates that did not take into account the temperature changes and therefore were set too high. Even when fishermen stayed within the quotas, they were in effect overfishing, the researchers write in their report, which appears in the Oct. 30 issue of the journal Science.

“The failure to consider temperature impacts on Gulf of Maine cod recruitment created unrealistic expectations for how large this stock can be and how quickly it can rebuild,” the researchers write.

thoughts For halloween From Steven Winslow- Children’s graves At The Calvary Cemetery

Children's area..

Steven writes-

Thought of you when I saw this.. held it until Halloween..

October flowers: On a recent October Day, I rode into the Calvary Cemetery to find a spot to have lunch.. Tried to find a place somewhat away from people visiting grave markers. As soon as I sat down, a man pulled up in a pick-up truck to water the grave of his brother (?) who had died in January. I commented that it was nice to see the flowers growing. To give him a quiet moment, I focused on the graves immediately in front of me and noticed that the grave stones were shaped like hearts or were topped with angel statues. When the man drove away, I went down and observed that those hearts and angels marked the graves of 30+ children who had died ~ prior to WW II (1940’s). Some had just lived weeks, other a few years.. Despite the short duration of their lives and the long passage of time, there were many that still had fresh flowers.. One was even decorated for Halloween.. I thought how part of grieving reflects back on the living, the need to remember is also to remember parts of ourselves that has been lost.. and that Halloween helps our children face the darkness of death so they can better learn to live..

Have a great Halloween all.. and remember it takes 1 minutes to burn of each M&M.. so go easy on the candy!!
