Chef Molly Evans likes to top off many of her holiday meals with roasted vegetables.

They’re quick, healthy, easy to make, delicious and “a crowd pleaser,” says Evans, owner of Savory and Sweet Specialties, based in St. Charles.

“To me, that’s always a go-to side dish,” she says. “It’s mostly hands-off. You mix it all together, throw it in the oven and you can forget about it and get the rest of the meal ready.”

Through her personal chef business, Evans makes home-cooked meals for families and private parties and hosts group cooking lessons.

As part of her services, she plans, grocery shops, prepares the food, packages it, labels it and leaves it for families to heat up throughout the week.

She originally went to business school, but her passion always was cooking and entertaining. Informal cooking classes expanded into her attending and graduating from Kendall College’s School of Culinary Arts in 2001. She also has become a member of the American Personal and Private Chef Association.
