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
Hmm...how 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!

Salsa Verde Pork
The flavor was really good, but of course, this will only be as good as the salsa verde you use and the cut of pork. I used Salpica brand Cilantro Green Olive Salsa with Charred Tomatillos which had medium heat. Against my better judgement, I followed the recipe and used pork loin. For roasts that need to be pulled, you should really use a fattier cut such as pork butt, shoulder or ribeye. Pork loin will not pull well because it lacks fat and, more importantly, collagen, so you end up with dry meat. I made the recipe exactly as written and it smelled delicious while cooking. I will definitely make this again, although next time I'll use a different roast. Super easy recipe for a busy week day.

Eggplant and Red Pepper Bake
Delicious! Make sure you use a small eggplant otherwise you will end up with extra. Very easy to assemble and packed with flavor! This makes 4 generous sides. I realized when I was on my third layer that I had forgotten to brush the eggplant with olive oil, so I only got the third layer. Not sure that really made much of a difference. The only thing I'd suggest it adding more cheese. 1/4 cup if very skimpy to cover the top, but that's personal preference. I used 1/2-3/4 cup total. Next time I might even add a bit of cheese between the layers. Thanks Anthony for the tasty recipe!

Best Mug Cake (Paleo)
Looking for a sweet treat, I decided to try this mug cake to change things up from the other recipe I normally use. This was very good and quick! The only changes I made were to use coconut oil instead of olive oil (I find the olive oil flavor too strong for cakes) and I used vanilla extract instead of coffee extract. This rose beautifully and I enjoyed the light texture. Also, unlike the other mug cake I make, this one pulled away from the sides nicely and could have easily been turned onto a plate. No sticking! And no time for a pic either! Thanks for sharing your recipe DenaMarie!
