Best meal I ever ate:
Pork breaded tenderloin sammie, for one. Maybe I'm just nostalgic. White five cheese lasagna, Chicago-style deep dish with fresh mozz.
My current drink of choice:
wine, wine, wine!! Second only to good coffee!!!!
I really wish I could:
Start my own catering biz or small restaurant, really. But just for fun. If only you didn't need all those rules, taxes, permits, etc!
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Depends on the party and the occasion.I do have lots and lots of appetizer favorites: my fab. cheese ball or salmon canapes for starters. I have sep. index card boxes for different courses, one just for appetizers.
My favorite comfort food:
Chicago style deep dish pizza
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Bring'er Inn, Illinois (closed), The Pirate's Table (Closed, South Dakota), sadly many of my favorite mom and pop places have sadly closed. That's a shame. Many treasured family recipes gone forever. Enigma, Rapid City, SD.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Moosewood Cookbook, The Quad-Cities Symphony Cookbook, 365 Pasta Dishes
