Best meal I ever ate:
I hope it's yet to come!
My current drink of choice:
I'm very intrigued right now with the Acquavit cocktails at the Viking in Ballard.
I really wish I could:
Bake like a pastry chef.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Fresh mussels steamed in white wine, butter, and herbs--SO easy and out of town guests are amazed!
My favorite comfort food:
Something I can't get in Seattle: divine chicken-fried steak
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
This changes constantly, but right now I like: Jak's Steakhouse, Austin Cantina, Tropics Thai (farewell, Sabai-Sabai, I miss you!), Maxmillien's in the Market, and Brasa's Happy Hour Menu.
My most tattered cookbooks:
The one my grandmother's church put together years ago, and she gave them lots of her old family recipes!
