FAQs ...

Of the food obsessed variety ...

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Currently, it's popcorn. In both sweet and savory flavors.

What is your favorite part of entertaining?
Creating the kind of evening where we eat good food and have spirited conversation late into the night.

If you were on Chopped, what is one ingredient you would NOT want to see in the basket?

If you could have a meal catered by a famous chef, who would it be?
Giada De Laurentiis - for her light take on Italian dishes. And because I think she would be fun to chat with. She seems to be 'good people'.

If you knew you couldn't fail, what would you cook?
Rack of Lamb. This response is rather strange really because I've only eaten lamb once. But I'd be pretty impressed with myself if I pulled it off.

Tell us one strange food thing that we don't know about you.
I prefer to eat dessert frozen. Ice cream and frozen yogurt are a given. But I like many baked goods frozen as well. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are especially good frozen. Really, you should try it sometime.

Where is your favorite place to dine right now?

Which 3 restaurants are on your dining wish list?
Vesta Dipping Grill
Il Posto

If you were to throw a pie in somebody's face, what flavor pie would you choose?
Cherry. This is an obvious answer. If you are going to throw a pie, you might as well make a big, colorful mess!

Have a question for me? Ask away! I will answer your questions in a post next week.

  1. I must find "lighter takes" on Italian dishes!!! Plus, I think my Husband would be pretty thrilled to have "G-Hottie" on his t.v. all the time. I, like you, love my desserts frozen. Even down to candy bars. :/ So here's my question, what's your favorite chocolate recipe?!??

  2. I loved your pie FAQ. I would pick the same. If I'm going to throw a pie at someone it better be a big ol' mess!

  3. Great FAQ's! I agree with you on the frozen stuff. I love chocolate cookie dough right out of the freezer. Yum!

  4. You've only eaten lamb once? Really, once?

    Maybe it's an Australian thing but I was practically raised on lamb and three veg.

    Rack of lamb is to die for. My mum used to make it with a lemon and garlic baste. So good!

  5. We can't pop enough popcorn in this house. Have you tried it with ghee? Friends request when they come and call it Crack Corn, 'cause once you've had it, you have to have it again. :>

  6. I would have picked a pie with a meringue top, just as messy!

  7. Hmmm...frozen chocolate cookie...I should try that!

  8. oooooo....such fun questions! I am working on my FAQ list for my about me page on my new site under construction. These are great! Can I steal a few? While I am not a foodie...I love to cook and bake so they would still apply. Looking for questions myself!

    Here's my question: what was your worst bomb of a recipe? Do you try new recipes when others visit or only when you are alone?

  9. Dropping by from Mama Kat's! "Light Italian" there is such a thing?

  10. Great FAQ! I really like Giada too! She makes everything look so good and doable.

  11. Mmm... I love cookie dough - now I'm curious about trying it frozen. Thanks for the recommendation!

  12. Great questions!! I totally need to try frozen baked goods now. Seriously strange, but I'm game!

  13. Glad to learn that so many out there also like frozen baked goods. And for the others to learn about how good it is! :)
