Halloween Horror Recipe!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love costumes, candy and debauchery, and It's an opportunity to get really crazy with our show here at Economy Bites. 99% of the time, our #1 focus is bringing you great, accessible recipes at affordable prices. Occasionally though, our inner creative demons get a hold of Daniel and me and we have to bust out with something a little different. Example A: today's episode!

If you saw last year's Halloween show, you know that, sadly, my life came to an abrupt halt when I was electrocuted in Kitchen Studio. In today's episode...well, let's just say that incident comes back to haunt me.

ENJOY! Be sure to watch until the end!! BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
