Chefs you admire:
Rick Bayless and Gordon Ramsey
 
What cooking shows do you watch?
Diners Drive ins & Dives (not really a "cooking" show but lots of great food displayed on there) Racheal Ray on occasion, Iron Chef, Paula Deen, Hells Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares & The F Word
 
Your must-have kitchen accessory is:
My Cutco knives 
 
What is your go-to ingredient?
Garlic
 
How many courses should a meal have?
I'm so not a "courses" type of person - we usually have a couple side dishes to go with the main dish, but to have salad, then entree, then dessert, not so much.
 
What's your favorite course?
see above
 
What famous person, living or dead, would you like to make a meal for?
Gordon Ramsey. I'd like to see if he'd enjoy something that WASN'T seafood related, since that always seems to be what wins on his shows
 
And, what would you serve them?
I'd have to give that some thought
 
What's your favorite style of cooking?
Scratch, southern style I guess (it's what I grew up on and know) I always make the easiest thing more complicated than it needs to be but I just cant help it LOL
 
What nationality of food do you like the best?
Mexican
 
What's your favorite meal of the day to prepare?
Dinner is all I really cook.
 
Where do you find inspiration when creating a new dish?
Food blogs, recipes online. Things at restaurants that I attempt to copy at home
 
Who has been your greatest inspiration in the kitchen?
My Grandma.
 
What is your favorite comfort food?
Potatoes
 
Do you ever eat fast food? If so, what?
Yes but not often. I am easily grossed out by meat and don't like chicken, so not alot to pick from in FF.  I usually have a Wendys burger when I go to lunch w/my family once per week and try not to think about what i'm eating.
 
What restaurant do you want to eat at that you haven't eaten at yet?
Fogo de Chao.
 
What do you serve at Thanksgiving dinner? I don't get to "serve" thanksgiving dinner due to a less-than-desirable living situation, but, at Grandmas where I do go we have turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, hashbrown casserole, cucumbers with ranch, home made rolls, green been casserole and home made chess and chocolate pies
 
Are there wines or liquors that you cook with?
No but there are plenty that I drink WHILE cooking LOL
 
How much time do you spend cooking a meal just for yourself?
Not long. That is usually when mac n cheese all for me or an egg mess come into play.
 
What would be your dream job as a chef?
Small town establishment that the locals flock to and isn't in the middle of a busy city.
 
What scent in the kitchen do you love – what ingredient smells the best?
Garlic, onions or celery
 
What ingredients do you avoid/dislike?
No seafood.
 
What's your secret splurge at the grocery store?
Nothing comes to mind.
 
What's your favorite midnight snack?
I rarely do that but if I do and there is any here to eat, chips and dip. Mmmm

ARGH. I edit this so that it isn't repeated, and when I publish, the whole thing is there 2 times. I don't know how to fix it...

About Me
Cooking is one of my favorite past times (and of course, eating what I cook;) I live in Southern Michigan and have been married since 9/1997. No kids yet, husbands Grandmother lives with us and that's enough for now. Thank you members, for all your great contributions to this site!
My favorite things to cook
Main courses, bread maker breads, Mexican, Italian, Southern Style.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Canning tomato juice every year with my Mom and Grandma, at the time it seemed like a horrible chore, but what great things they have taught me! Also learning to make beans and cornbread and chocolate pies from my Grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the dishes that my husband said he would never like, I have managed to get to him to try and enjoy everything besides bean soup and one of these days I'm going to manage to get him to try that, too! ;)
My cooking tragedies
Cooked a round steak for the first time in the crock pot after I was first married, and took the advice of the girls at work to leave it on HIGH for ten hours with no liquids. It had the consistency of rocks..and dh and his best friend still ate it to make me feel better, bless them! My inability to master dough of any kind, even if I start it in the bread machine. I really have issues with trying to manipulate pizza dough, biscuits, etc. Making hamburgers in a skillet for the first time and burning them into hockey pucks ( I was about 10 years old ) The dog wouldn't even eat them!
