Loves Food Loves to Eat is a technology marketing professional and food blogger living in Seattle who finds cooking inspiration in anything from a college cookie exchange to vampire movies. She writes with an exuberance about cooking and experimenting, both in her own creations (like Orange Spice Russian Tea Cakes and ArtiChicken Stock) and in her versions of favorite dishes in her mom's repertoire (like Mel's Bean Pie and Three Cheese Monte Cristos). Her recipes are also dotted with insights into the Pacific Northwest's food culture, including local points of pride like huckleberries, JoJos and the elusive October farmers' market tomato. Check out Loves Food Loves to Eat's profile page and fan her here. And just try to say her username aloud three times without it becoming your own personal mantra. 

Read her profile Q&A below:

  • What is the strangest food you have ever eaten?
    Alligator Jerky
  • What do you cook when home alone?
    Eggs- for some reasons whenever I'm home alone I get creative with fried egg sandwiches, poached eggs with greens, etc.
  • Your most treasured kitchen possession:
    Finger bowls from Anthropologie because I use them daily. My mango slicer, because it's so easy! My nutmeg grinder, because it's so much better fresh!
  • Your ideal meal:
    Thanksgiving dinner prepared by my mom, my sister, and me...eaten with my family and our closest friends.
  • Something you'd like a chance to eat or cook:
    South American cuisine- from the source!
  • The number of bottles of wine you own:
    Usually anywhere between 4 and 8
  • The ideal number of guests for a dinner party is:
    8 total (including me and Evan)
  • Kitchen pet peeve:
    When people season/salt/hotsauce their food (especially my creations) before tasting them (Evan.....)
  • Your favorite cookbook:
    The original Fannie Farmer Cookbook, Gourmet Magazine

Like regular beef jerky, but a little... swampy? Maybe it was in my head, but if 'swampy' is a flavor, then that's what alligator jerky tastes like =).
