I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Pizza. Pizza. Pizza. NY Style, thin crust, plain cheese, and I'm a happy girl.
2. If you could meet anyone living or dead who would it be and why?
Well, this is a tough one, but I know who it would be. Before I was born, my parent's first child was born prematurely, and she passed away when she was only a few days old. This was in 1970, and if they had the technology then, that we have now, she would have been okay.
3. Why did you start blogging and what did you expect when you started?
I had no expectations at all. I started my blog as a place to dump out all that was floating around in my head. I ended up writing mostly about what I love, my family, running, and food. As a bonus I now have blog friends who I "talk to" on a daily basis. Which is pretty cool.
4. What is the one book you could read over and over again?
There are so many. I mentioned recently how much I love Catcher in the Rye. But I could re-read Bridget Jones's Diary any day.
5. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
It would be Japan. I've been to Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and would love to go to the Far East. My Great Aunt Betti traveled to Japan when she was in her seventies, so I know I'll get there someday.
6. If you could have a TV show on the Food Network, what would it be?
It would be me and my husband. It would be called Mike and Molly (I can't tell you how many of our friends emailed/facebooked us this fall saying, "Did you know there is a show on CBS called Mike and Molly?????")We love food, we love to cook, we love to eat. He's more of a grill man with his bottle of Labatt's, I'm more of the home cooking gal with a glass of vino. That would be a fun balance of both.
7. What was the best meal you ever had?
The best meal I've had was the simplest. We were in a restaurant in Utrech, outside of Amsterdam. The meal was a wonderful combination of being on vacation in a place full of in history, with great company, great wine. I chose a pasta tossed with salmon, with a very light cream sauce. It was a new take on salmon for me, was cooked perfectly, and of course, delicious.
8. Who has been the greatest influence on your love for food and learning to cook?
