Blogger Interview

Peabody was recently interviewed on her blog, and offered the opportunity to be questioned to her readers. I figured what the heck! So, here are my replies to her interview queries:

1. How long have you had your food blog?
I originally started my blog in September of '06, but in retrospect, starting a project right before my wedding wasn't a brilliant plan. I never did anything with it, other than setting it up, until January. So, it's about 8 months old, but didn't really exist until the past 5 months or so.

2. What is your most favorite post on your food blog?
I guess my favorite post is probably my Taste of Yellow entry. It gave me a chance to talk about my grandmother, who I miss a lot, experiment with a new recipe, I got some lovely comments, and I think the pictures are probably the best I've taken of my cooking exploits. Also, that cake was yummy!

3. Who is the biggest influence in your life? In your cooking life?
I've had a lot of big influences in my life overall, but at this point in my life I would say it's my husband. He's my best friend and I love him to pieces. Every night when I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up I am so, so glad that I married him. Neither of us may be perfect, but we're perfect for each other. In my cooking life, he has also been a big influence. His request to start eating healthier is what got me started really cooking in the first place. But the biggest influence in my cooking life is definitely Martha Stewart. Honestly, at least 90% of the recipes I make have come from Martha. I bought my first issue of Living magazine when I was 16, and I still have it to this day. And now Everyday Food is my favorite resource for recipes and ideas.

4. What cooking trend do you hate right now? What cooking trend do you love right now?
Hmm, I don't know if I'm really in touch with what the cooking trends are. Perhaps pomegranate? That's not just a trend in food and drink, but it's popping up in soaps and lotions too. I guess it boggles the mind that a fruit is suddenly trendy and needs to be a part of my body in every way possible. I do however like that the trends seem to be with fruits- Meyer lemons, key limes, blood oranges, pomegranates, etc.

5. What would your last meal consist of?
Really the meal would just have to have bacon, ranch dressing/dip, and chocolate involved. Not all together though. Probably a BLT, stacked incredibly high with perfect bacon- crispy, not chewy. Ruffles with ranch dip, a big salad with plenty of croutons, and then some type of chocolate dessert- nothing too sweet though. And beer, I love beer. Obviously I'm not a foodie, just an eatie.

Do you want to be interviewed? Here are the directions:
1. Leave a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. Beware, I may ask personal questions! Please make sure I have your email address.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
