A tie between Hubbell House in Mantorville MN (on vaca) and Luigi's in Harrison Township, MI, the first time I ever tasted gnocchi.
My current drink of choice:
Margarita made with Cedar Door's marg mix
I really wish I could:
Taste an In 'n Out burger and real NY pizza.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
I don't like dinner parties.
My favorite comfort food:
Everything my mom makes, especially her beef stroganoff and her homemade chicken and noodles. Oh, and anything chocolate and richer and sweeter than it has a right to be.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
1. Mary's Italian Restaurant - Tulsa, OK (Don't laugh if you haven't been there.) 2. Sandpiper Restaurant in Bailey's Harbor WI (For the best breakfast I've ever had in my life. 3. Northern Lights Roadhouse & Pub - Beaver Bay, MN (For the best brunch I've ever had in my life). 4. The Brook in Tulsa OK (best burger & cheese fries anywhere). 5. Hill's Cafe Austin TX (a current go to restaurant for comfort food).
My most tattered cookbooks:
Most of my recipes are things I learned from my mother. She put together a cookbook for me a few years ago and wrote down recipes that used to be just in her head.
