Despite all the fun-sized candy bars, peanut butter cups, and gummy worms eaten with abandon this time of year, I argue that we still need more chocolate. And that's not just because I am a chocolate fiend (which, if you're curious, I am) — it's because Halloween would be infinitely better with these brownies.

A slice of classic cheesecake is one of those desserts that takes nicely to added flavors and tinkering. If you love both pumpkin pie and cheesecake, these creamy bars are the perfect hybrid.

One pan makes a lot of bars that you can take to your next party or potluck; I promise the pan will come home empty.

Recipe: Slow Cooker Maple-Mustard Pulled Pork — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners

Pulled pork is one of those magical meals that every self-respecting meat-eater should be able to prepare by heart. And when you say pulled pork to any Southerner, you'll hear descriptions of luscious pieces of tender meat rubbed with secret spice mixes and doused in sauces of spice and vinegar, tangy mustard, or sticky-sweet tomato and molasses.

Although those classic smoky flavors are satisfying, sometimes you need a new spin on an old classic. With a few shakes from your spice cabinet, some flavorful liquid, and a slow cooker, you can transform a huge hunk of meat into a satisfying meal for a crowd without spending hours over smoldering embers.

Spinach and feta make eggs even better with a fresh, salty, and creamy kick. But with this make-ahead breakfast casserole, that's just the beginning.
