Food and Cooking Meme

I got this from Nancy, who got it from Amy.

What is your go-to ingredient?
Definitely pasta! So many easy ways to use it! Chicken is a close second.

What nationality of food do you like the best?
That is a no-brainer. We eat Italian 75% of the time.

What’s your favorite meal of the day to prepare?
Dinner, although we enjoy making breakfast on Sundays.

What is/are your signature dish? (What dish are you ‘known’ for?)
Just one? Gosh...I guess I am known for lasagnas (crab, pesto, artichoke) or fresh ravioli. I think it might actually be desserts! Cheesecakes, caramel cakes, lemon tiramisu, panna cottas.

What is your favorite comfort food?
Definitely Cheese&Mac! (2 lbs of cheddar, so the cheese is listed first!)

What cooking shows do you watch?
Top Chef, Chopped, Hell's Kitchen, No Reservations

Your top three favorite cookbooks are:
The Splendid Table, Silver Spoon, and Dolce Italiano

Your must-have kitchen accessory is:
My Kitchen Aid stand mixer!

Do you ever eat fast food? If so, what?
Maybe once or twice a year on a road trip, if I have to! Probably a Jack in the Box Chicken Club. Unless you count Starbucks...

Most memorable meal you’ve had while on vacation:
Agata and Romeo in Rome, I Caffi in Acqui Terme, and Cibreo in Florence.

What restaurant do you want to eat at that you haven’t yet?
Cafe Firenze in Moorepark, but I will next week!

What’s your favorite dessert?
A caramel sunday or a lemon tart.

What scent in the kitchen do you love?
Taralli baking, or pancetta cooking.

What ingredient(s) do you avoid/dislike?
Tomatoes (Except in a meat sauce), beans, cauliflower!

What’s your secret splurge at the grocery store?
Veal chops, sopresatta salami, good cheese!

What’s the most decadent dish you’ve ever had?
Decadent, huh? That sounds like dessert, and I usually don't have dessert out.
Probably something with a gorgonzola sauce!

What’s your favorite midnight snack?
I NEVER eat a late night snack. Maybe gelato in Italy!

I like reading this meme. My Splendid Table is supposed to arrive today-can't wait!


Although I really have a sweet tooth and love desserts, I would pick your lasagnas and ravioli first!

This was a good meme for a foodie like you! Now we need to know how Brad would answer the questions . . .

This was a fun meme to read. My go-to ingredients also are pasta and chicken. I love tomatoes but they don't agree with me. I very much dislike most beans.
