Tomorrow is Halloween, which is another of those things I didn't grow up with. I have no Halloween-friendly recipes, so I'll direct you to someone else's. Let me introduce you to my favorite cooking show: Deep Fried Live!
Deep Fried Live! is hosted by Tako the Octopus, an accident-prone cephalopod with a neurotic mother. He loves nutmeg as much as I love basil. Episode 6, "Curse of the Pumpkin Queen," is Halloween-themed and provides a nice recipe for pumpkin flan. (Though Episode 7, "Fleeb Cooks an Earth Cow," is still my favorite.)
