1. What is a food that you never thought you would try, but then tried and liked?
Beef hearts. Yuck. But actually...they are not really that bad!

2. Do you subscribe to any foodie publications? If so, which ones?
Nope. I eat a lot and love to make new things, but I usually just use Joy of Cooking or the internet.

3. What ingredient do you find yourself reaching for the most when you cook?
Chili peppers, salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic, onion. Or if it's sweet -- BUTTER.

4. Are there any foods that you hated as a child, but then learned to like as an adult?
I hated tomatoes. I used to have to close my eyes or drink them with water. love them now!

5. What do you like to eat that others may consider weird?
I guess see number one. Also, I love fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, apples with cheese, cucumber sandwiches and top ramen with an raw egg put inside.

6. What is the weirdest ingredient you’ve ever cooked with?
Okra. It's slimy and weird.

7. Do you have any major food allergies?
Nope. None.

8. Is there an ingredient that you would like to cook with, but are intimidated to try?
No. I will pretty much try anything. I just haven't heard about it yet.

9. Do you bake?
Oh man. Does a bear S in the woods? ooooh. Sorry! Yes,  I LOVE to bake. I haven't met a baked good I couldn't make.

10. If you could go on any “foodie” show to compete, which one would it be, and why?
Top Chef. I love that show. It has a lot of drama, but I don't care. Besides the first one was in the bay area and my brother's friend bought the building. I went there. They still have the Kenmore Kitchen.

  1. Mmm ... I love apples with cheese! I'm not sure if I've ever fried PB&J, though I have fried PB/Banana/Honey sandwiches and they are delish!

  2. These were fun to read! I had no idea you were a baker! It is something i rarely do. But i do enjoy it because it tends to require precision and I am all about precision. ;)
