# My favorite dinner is breakfast! # My favorite snack is cheese and crackers! # I make my own bread. 2 loaves every 2 weeks. # I try to tackle one new recipe every month. # Even though I'm on a college student budget I love hosting small dinner parties. # Every dip/finger food I made for this years super bowl party involved cheese in some way, shape, or form. # Until I moved to the South, I would never eat anything hot or spicy. I'm glad I'm over that. # I subscribe to Taste of Home. # I would rather bake than sleep. # I try to plan a weekly menu, a week in advance. # I do most of my grocery shopping at night when I get off of work. # I have only worked in restaurants. # My favorite autumn meal is stuffed pumpkin. # To get to a farmer's market I have to drive at least an hour, with the exception of the May - August months. # I hope to save enough money to go to school to be a pastry chef. # I try to only buy condensed juice. It makes me think I'm not getting as much sugar syrup in my juice. # I do not own a blender or a food processor. This greatly restricts what I can and cannot cook. # I'm the only 21 year old female I know who would rather buy a cooking magazine than a fashion magazine. # My trash always stinks. My justification for this is that I eat tasty, home cooked meals. # I love to cook, I hate doing dishes. # I have recently started baking with parchment paper. Why didn't I do that sooner? # I have put my boyfriend in charge of cooking biscuits because I ALWAYS burn the bottoms. # I love my crock pot! # Every time I go to Taco-Bell (which isn't often, it's definitely a treat when I do go) I always ask for a minute to look over the menu board. Then I order the same thing I get every time - nachos with extra sour cream. # I make some things a day in advance because I think they taste better after they have had a chance to sit and all the flavors can become friends.
