What is your favorite thing to cook?
I prefer to bake - desserts, breads, anything that goes in the oven
What is your favorite ingredient?
Beef, Cheese and Potatoes. (Any combination of the three and I am happy!)
Do you have any dietary restrictions you use in cooking (i.e. vegetarian, diabetic)?
No - although I can be a picky eater at times, so there are certain ingredients I will avoid! It's a texture thing - I don't like nuts in my fudge, I don't like pudding - that sort of thing. I still cook the things I don't like though!
What kitchen utensil can't you live with out?
Hmmm... I have a *wonderful* spoon/spatula thing that I got when I lived in Germany that I would miss if it was gone. And the dishwasher ... does that count as a utensil? I know I couldn't live without it!
What kitchen utensil do you covet?
All kitchen utensils that I don't already own. I am a gadget addict. I love it when I walk into a kitchen store, looking at all the wonderful
things. Living in Germany was wonderful for that - they have many neat kitchen gadgets that we don't have here.
What are your favorite types of foods?
Mexican (Fajitas), Italian, Pizza, a good steak, potatoes, pastas, breads. (I prefer "salty" foods over sweets.)
How many people do you usually cook for?
Two, myself & my son Jason. I like to make things that have leftovers so I don't have to cook every day or so I can take it to work for lunch.
Any other personal info you'd like to share?
I don't cook as often as I would like to - the time crunch of working late gets me sometimes. I love to cook, but for some reason my friends always assume I don't know how. I don't get that - I guess I have ordered them
pizza one time too many? They are always surprised when I cook for them! (You made this? Really? Wow, you're a really good cook!) I took my first "cooking lessons" at a Saturday program at the YMCA in Kankakee, Illinois when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. My first attempt at cooking by myself was when my best friend & I (I was about 8) decided to make my my pancakes while she was still asleep. We ruined her brand new double burner skillet by using a metal spatula on it. Oops! Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?! I am going to start to teach my son how to cook more - it will come in handy when he gets older!
