(Taken from my new obsession and one of the best food blogs I have read : http://www.lottieanddoof.com/ )
Sweet or salty?
Sweet, if i must choose. But what I really adore is the perfect combination of the two. Like a chocolate covered pretzel. Or salted caramel. Oh, heaven.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Decadent, melt in your mouth milk chocolate. Nothing fancy, just pure melty goodness.
Hot or mild?
I wish I loved spicy foods, because mild is just so boring. But I simply do not like to be in pain while I enjoy a tasty meal.
What won’t you eat?
Mushrooms. Any and all kinds. I can't handle even the smell of them. I will not be convinced.
Favorite object in your kitchen?
The wooden panels on either side of the stove that my great-grandmother hand painted with gorgeous peacocks.
What are you scared of in the kitchen?
The dark recesses above the fridge. I don't want to know what lurks back there.
Do you prefer to cook alone or with others?
Alone, for people. Too many cooks in the kitchen really stress me out, and cooking is a great way for me to unwind and get creative. However, if someone were to offer to help me prep things, I'd gladly accept the help. And I do like it when people pop their head into the kitchen so I don't feel lonely. Mostly, I just like to be able to accept all the credit! Ha!
What country would you move to for the food?
Oh, Italy. In a heartbeat.
If you were to come back as a fruit or vegetable, what would you be?
Probably something weird like an olive. (I like Jen's answer, so I'm keeping it!)
What’s for dinner?
Hopefully, pizza. Delivered. I don't have the energy to cook!
Most memorable meal?
This Christmas, Husbear and I hosted an Orphan's Christmas Dinner for those of our friends who found themselves stuck in the City for the Holidays, like us. This was my way to do something to take my mind off the heartache of not being able to be with my family. So I planned an incredible menu of Creamy Parsley and Pistachio Fettucine, Roasted Broccoli, Garlic mashed potatoes, and Panettone Bread Pudding for dessert (everything was beautiful and delicious) and served it to my little New York family. It was our first married Christmas, and I really and truly felt maternal in the most beautiful way. I love to serve those close to my heart.
especially Laura (from Piece of Cake) and Cassie (from How to Eat a Cupcake)!
Also, my very favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, coming soon, as well as a review for the Best Steakhouse Ever, Morton's (in Brooklyn).
I apologize for the lack of posts recently.
Husbear and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend! We've been pretty...uh, busy. ;) But soon, my loves. Soon, you will have treats.
