1. Halloween Ghost Meringue Cookies: Their vanishing nature may make you wonder if they’re simply an apparition, but don’t worry! They’re very real and very enjoyable. (via Secret Life of a Chef’s Wife)
2. Spiced Ghost Pancakes: Breakfast is ready in a flash with these fall-spiced pancakes that utilize boxed pancake mix jazzed up with a variety of fall spices. The finishing touch: a pile of etherial whipped cream piped on top to form a ghost. (via Taste and Tell)
7. Chocolate Lovers Pumpkin Fudge Brownie Pancakes: Drizzled with chocolate-Kahlua sauce and topped with marshmallow buttercream ghosts, these pancakes make for one devilish short stack. (via Half Baked Harvest)
10. Boo Berry Cupcakes: Transform a box of Boo Berry cereal into a flavor boost for these cupcakes — crushed cereal is folded into the batter while the colorful marshmallows add a Funfetti-esque flair to the frosting. (via Mrs. Schwartz Kitchen)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
