Scaretini, a Halloween-inspired martini

I like martinis and I love Halloween. So when I was thinking about creating the perfect Halloween-inspired martini, the Chic Files suggested that it be called, The Scaretini”. The Scaretini is a lemon martini garnished with candy corn, a sweet and sour sugar rim, and plastic (or real) 8-legged friends. This cocktail will either cure or exacerbate your arachnophobia!

Braised Cauliflower with Tomatoes

Tomato Braised Cauliflower

Plain cauliflower is a pretty bland to the taste. Raw or steamed cauliflower can make broccoli taste like a veal chop! But if you first saute some onion, garlic and other spices, then slowly cook the cauliflower in tomatoes, now your cauliflower’s got staying-power! This dish can be used as a sauce or a side…

Spaghettini with Oil and Garlic

Spaghettini with Olive Oil and Garlic

Simple, quick, yet flavorful is how I would best describe spaghettini with olive oil and garlic. The recipe doesn’t need a protein or a vegetable, but I was hungry, so I added some zucchini. I think next time, I’ll add asparagus, or maybe shrimp. You can improvise with this dish, just remember the more garlic…
