Halloween Open House Party


Trick-or-treating with friends ranks pretty high on my list of outstanding childhood memories. I can see my mom blinding speeding drivers with her flashlight like it was yesterday. I can recall the quick turnaround between my return home from school, doing any homework (from the mean teachers), and getting in costume and out the door.  

Let me make the night easier on you with this easy and delicious chili recipe that can be made the day before and reheated while the costumes are completed. I like to pair it with Highland Bakery’s jalapeño focaccia bread, chips, & guacamole. So this Halloween, invite your favorite ghouls and goblins over for a pre-party, throw the pot of chili on the stove, and ensure something more substantial than candy fills their bellies.

Christine grew up in the Atlanta area where she returned after college and met her husband of 5 years in one of the last standing dive bars from what most of us remember as 'old Buckhead'. After six years in consulting, she pursued her dream to go culinary school in NY and then Italy where she gained the experience necessary to start a boutique catering company, Squash Blossom Kitchens, with a good childhood friend. When she's not catering during the week, she enjoys staying home part-time with her son, Nolan, and her rescue pit mix, Vita. She loves long walks on the belt line, yoga, and Campari cocktails and looks forward to sharing her stories and advice on living in town with a little one.
