We don't normally celebrate Halloween at our house, since we don't have kids and we're usually invited elsewhere for parties. This year, I decided to spice things up a bit and make a couple Halloween treats and invite some friends over.¬† It really didn't take much planning at all, and before… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a 39 yr old foodie currently living in Aurora, IL. I'm very fortunate in that I have plenty of friends and family who will try everything I make, and I'm constantly using them as my guinea pigs! I was born and raised in Canada by my French Canadian parents. I grew up eating a lot of French Canadian foods, and I just love getting home to Canada to taste mom's delicious cooking. She has always inspired me to cook.
My cooking triumphs
Planning and making a 6 course meal for hubby's business associates who were in town on business. Not only was this the most time-consuming meal I've ever made, it was my first time meeting all of them! Stressful day, but a huge success!
My cooking tragedies about reaching into the oven to take out the Thanksgiving turkey and having the pan collapse, dumping the turkey and scorching liquids onto my bare feet. YEEEE-OUCH!

Mezzi Rigatoni with Chicken Thighs, Rosemary, Lemon Zest and Roasted Garlic Sauce
I was really surprised at how much we liked this. I never buy jarred sauces, since I like to make my own, however the simple addition of rosemary and lemon really transformed this whole dish. It tasted homemade! To make the chicken easier to chop, sauté the chicken thighs whole, then chop when cooked. Also chop up the rosemary. A great recipe to have on hand for busy week nights.

White Fiber Mini Shells with Cherry Tomatoes, Basil and Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
Another one of those recipes that is so simple, yet very tasty. I added in some garlic when the onion was almost cooked. I love the freshness of the ingredients. Makes a perfect summer meal. Next time I will add more basil because the flavor was very mild. I do have to say this is much better right after you make it. I found when it was reheated the next day the flavors were quite bland. I ended up having to add more cheese and some seasonings. I used a mix of red and orange cherry tomatoes A fresh, colorful dish.

Parsley Walnut Pesto Quinoa Salad
Seriously amazing, just like the recipe submitter said! I made it exactly as written, except for one minor change: I had to add more oil to the parsley/walnut mix because it was a thick paste at first. No biggie. When I was done cooking the quinoa I thought, there's no way this is going to be enough! Fret not, bc this definitely makes enough for 4 good sized servings. I love how healthy this is and can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Next time I will add a bit of garlic as suggested. Thanks t_jones!
