Favorite Foods:
One favorite food? Hmmm… I don’t think I can pick just one. I really love seasonal foods. I love turkey with sausage and red cabbage and everything that goes with it at Thanksgiving. I love wassail when it starts to get cold outside. I love my mom’s and grandma’s au gratin potatoes, homemade jam and homemade cinnamon rolls at Christmas-time. Ice cream and slush are my summer favorites. I can’t pick. Maybe I just love all food. Oh wait – unless chocolate counts.
Favorite Restaurant(s):
I’m easy to please when it comes to restaurants. I’m just thrilled that someone else is going to do my dishes. J I love CafĂ© Rio, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Porcupine Grill (in Salt Lake City) and the weird Japanese place just down the street from me. Some I love for the food and others for sentimental reasons.

Inspiration to Cook:
I love to cook. (Just wish I had a magic button to clean up after.) Cooking for other people and cooking for special occasions gets me most excited, but I really do like cooking just for the sake of cooking. (I guess eating inspires me too – I really like to eat yummy food).

Feelings about New Foods:
I love trying new recipes. I’m always on the lookout for something new. I have a few rotating dinners that I cook all the time, but I love to branch out and try new things – especially unique or foreign things. We buy baskets of fruit and veggies from Bountiful Baskets and that keeps things interesting. I get a basket of new stuff on Saturday and have to figure out what to do with it all so we don’t waste any. It’s been a fun and exciting challenge! We’ve even gotten fruits and veggies that we’ve never seen before. My kids love it!

At the Table:
I love to entertain! I love cooking for friends and making special dinners for my husband and me. It makes me feel good and I get a chance to branch out and try new things. (Yes, I do sometimes try new recipes on friends…) I also love cooking with friends! I love learning from the way other people do things!
