DeBary Hall plans creepy candlelight tours - October 2017


DeBary Hall plans creepy candlelight tours

Get some pre-Halloween frights by listening to scary tales and taking a candlelight tour of DeBary Hall Historic Site at 7 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, Oct. 14 and 21.

Guests will start their tour in the site’s theater, where a storyteller will share superstitions and tales of life on Florida’s waterways.

Afterward, they will tour the 19th century hunting lodge, where they will hear more spooky stories and experience some mild frights as they are escorted through the narrow hallways and darkened rooms once occupied by wine merchant Frederick deBary and family.

The tours are designed to startle and activate the imagination.

Space is limited, and reservations are required; call 386-668-3840. Admission is $10 per person. Children under 12 will not be admitted.

DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd., DeBary, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Get Forked Friday: Bad Breath Dip


Bad Breath Dip (lol)

For years I purchased dips in the store, but the more educated I became on what as in those dips the more disgusted I was and they are so easy to make on your own, so make them! Here is one of my favorites! I call it Bad Breath Dip because of the garlic ;)

My Bad Breath Dip

You need:

4 cloves of Garlic crushed
1 tub of good Sour Cream
2-3 large sprigs of Fresh Dill (chopped up or torn)
Smoked Paprika (2-3 dashes)

What you do: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well, cover and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours. Longer the better. Serve with fresh veggies or chips! YUM! See how easy that was?!
