Meal after homecooked childhood meal that my mom lovingly made for us almost every night until ... well, until I got married!
My current drink of choice:
Water, often with lime. I will occasionally treat myself to a Fresca. :-)
I really wish I could:
Wow. I guess I really wish I could accomplish world peace, protect all the children, cure all diseases, and lead everyone to the path of eternal salvation. So are these wishes granted?
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
Does this mean what I take to a dinner party? Usually dessert. This could be, among many other things, German Chocolate Cake or killer bread pudding if I have time or Chocolate Heaven Sheet Cake if I don't.
My favorite comfort food:
probably something starchy and cheesy
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
I don't have time to rewrite this now. I'm so bummed that my spur-of-the-moment reminiscing of Enon Valley Inn was erased by the Chow team forever.
My most tattered cookbooks:
First, the handwritten cookbook my grandmother gave me when I got married. Then definitely the ancient (1930s or 40s) church cookbook from Naples, Illinois, that has recipes from my great aunts and other family members in it. My aunt gave it to me in pre-tattered condition. I prize it highly.
