Creepin' It Real!

Creepin' It Real!

Halloween is just around the corner and at Range Kleen, were creepin' it real with some tasty, spooky delights. From monstrous stuffed peppers to yummy mummy cupcakes, we'll share some tricks of your favorite treats for a haunting good time!

Spook your family with this quick treat. Prepare a breakfast fit for goblins by whipping up a quick batch of pancakes, then use chocolate syrup to draw spook designs! Your loved ones are sure to get a chuckle out of this wicked start to the day.

For a quick kid-friendly lunch toast two pieces of bread, then top toast with some pizza sauce, spread separated string cheese (or mozzarella) to and lay across pizza sauce resembling mummy bandages. Finally, top with olives and then place on a baking sheet (we love using our Broil and Bake Pan ) then broil until cheese is melted.

 

If you're looking for a devilish delight, add some triangle red pepper and sliced olives to traditional deviled eggs. 

 

Cut Jack-O-Lantern faces out of bell peppers before stuffing them for a ghoulish dinner. 

 

 

Severed fingers are minutes away from your snack display with this Cooking with Libby's recipe. Try out 

 

Bring a little mummy madness to the table by piping white icing onto chocolate cupcakes. Add candied eyes (or coated chocolate candies) and voila! A spooky sweet treat. 

For a savory mummy treat, place frozen meatballs on crescent rolls, slice the sides of the crescent roll like fringe to resemble bandages, fold across the meatballs and bake. Bake at 375* for about 15 minutes. 

If you're looking for healthier snacks, consider bringing bananas and clementines to the table. Dress bananas up with chocolate chips eyes and a mouth. Add a small stem of celery to each clementine for a pumpkin look. 

Try spreading peanut butter on apple wedges and sandwich mini marshmallows between two wedges for "teeth". Then add two toothpicks with marshmallow eyes (use a food coloring marker or a dab of chocolate frosting). These will surely be a hit.

We hope you find these tips help make your Halloween a celebration to remember.

Are you ready? Celebrate National Preparedness Month with a Plan

Are you ready? Celebrate National Preparedness Month with a Plan

Disasters are unpredictable and can strike at any time, as our friends in Texas recently experienced when Hurricane Harvey caused catastrophic flooding of epic proportions. The catastrophic flooding forced many to flee with nothing but the clothing on their backs. First responders and volunteer rescuers were working 'round the clock to bring people to safety. This wasn't the first natural disaster we've experienced and it certainly won't be the last. If you're asking yourself what you can do to be prepared for a potential disaster, we've compiled some tips.

  • Make an emergency plan with your family. Decide on a meeting place and be sure everyone knows where to meet. 
  • Include your animals in your emergency plan.
  • Have an evacuation plan and practice evacuating with your animals and children to ease the transition for them. 
  • Keep copies of emergency papers in a waterproof envelope that's protected but handy to grab. These papers may include identity information, marriage license, government issued photo IDs, insurance policies, and so forth. You may also include medications or copies of medical records and so forth. 
  • Sign up for texting updates regarding weather as this may be more readily accessible than television news sources. Weather.gov provides a list of free services (text message fees with your phone carrier still apply). 
  • Check with your local city or county to determine if text updates are available, many cities offer this to assist with potential disasters. 
  • Create a Disaster Supply Kit. Check out WeatherUnderground.com for recommendations on a  Disaster Supply Kit recommendations.

Total Eclipse of the Sun: Best Practices for Enjoying the Show

Total Eclipse of the Sun: Best Practices for Enjoying the Show

If you haven’t heard, we’re in for a real treat on August 21st, 2017! There will be a total solar eclipse and at Range Kleen we’re pumped! While solar eclipses happen anywhere about two times per year, they frequently occur over ocean locations where few, if any, bear witness. This total solar eclipse will be the first to cross coast-to-coast in 99 years, and the first to pass through any the lower 48 states since February 26, 1979. It will likely be the most viewed solar eclipse in modern history.

How can you stay safe and enjoy the eclipse? Here are our tips:

  • Don’t watch the eclipse with naked eyes - the magnification from the sun can permanently damage your retina, possibly causing blindness. Never look directly at the sun!
  • Don’t wear sunglasses to view the eclipse. Sunglasses offer protection which is suitable for normal sun exposure, but they are powerless to the magnification of the sun during the eclipse.
  • Don’t use your camera to capture or view the eclipse. Most lenses are not equipped to handle the magnification. If you do wish to photograph the eclipse, contact the manufacturer of your camera for lens recommendations. Nikon has some great tips on proper lenses.
  • Do purchase regulated solar eclipse glasses made of Mylar film to watch. Many establishments such as local major retailers, outdoor retailers, grocery stores, libraries, and city halls are selling glasses. We recommend calling to inquire about availability before going to the store.
  • Do plan ahead. Millions are expected to flock to locations where totality is in view. If you plan on traveling, leave the house allowing plenty of time to arrive at your destination, and to find appropriate parking. Check out NASA’s Interactive Total Solar Eclipse Map to see where you might be able to view.
  • Do enjoy this rare astrological occurrence. Can’t find glasses? Looking for a fun project? Make a NASA Pinhole Camera to safely view the eclipse.
  • Stuck inside? You can still view from indoors. Click to view a live streaming from NASA.
