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 40 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 back 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 business associates who were in town. Not only was this the most time-consuming meal I've ever made, it was my first time meeting all of them in person! Stressful day, but a huge success!
My cooking tragedies about reaching into the oven to take out the Thanksgiving turkey and having the cheap pan collapse, dumping the hot turkey and scorching liquids onto my bare feet. YEEEE-OUCH!

Chicken and White Bean Chili
DELISH! This was so good, it was eaten before I could even get a pic! I made a half batch, but wished I had made a full batch. I used a medium roasted tomato & chipotle salsa (World Table brand) and the flavors were perfect! I made it exactly as written and the chicken was super tender. I will definitely be making this again! No need to change a thing!

Spinach Pasta Salad
This was really good! I need a recipe in a hurry to bring to a work potluck lunch the next day. I took someone's suggestion and grated the lemon zest (about half the lemon) and added that in with the lemon juice. Great idea! I only used half the red onion (I'd say maybe 1/3 cup) bc I didn't want onion overpowering the salad. I also used the full 4oz container of feta and found that was the perfect amount. The only real change I made was to add in a half jar of sundried tomatoes, chopped. They added a lovely flavor! I mixed the salad the night before, minus the spinach and about 1/3 of the dressing. An hour before the lunch, I added in the chopped spinach and the remaining dressing. Out of 8 ppl at the lunch, I had 3 asking for the recipe and everyone commented that they liked it. Great recipe!

Easy Warm Chickpea Salad
I made this exactly as written and couldn't taste the lemon, parsley or mint, so I ended up using about 1 tbsp of each. I also added more garlic. With these amounts, the chickpeas are very flavorful. For those who don't like spicy, I suggest you cut back on the red pepper flakes. I liked the bite, so I thought 1 tsp was perfect. A nice change of pace and a very healthy side dish.
