Q&A with SLD

  • Describe an early food experience that has influenced the way you think about food and/or cooking.
  • I cherish memories of my Dad bent over the stove making Chicken-Fried Steak as only he could make it.

  • What's your least favorite food?
  • Liver

  • What is the best thing you've made so far this year?
  • I found an old Chicken Croquette recipe, added a few things and made a dill sauce to go with it. Delicious!

  • Describe your most spectacular kitchen disaster.
  • My in-laws were coming over for dinner (before we were married) and I took the jello mold apart too soon and jello ended up all over the counter and floor. I think that may have been the last time I used a jello mold...

  • What is your idea of comfort food?
  • Home-made chili topped with sour cream and a little fresh onion, served with a hot roll or fresh bread.

  • Apron or no apron?
  • Apron

  • What's your favorite food-related scene in a movie?

  • My mom

  • You prefer to cook: a. alone, b. with others, c. it depends on your mood

  • When it comes to tidying up, you usually: a. clean as you cook, b. do all the dishes once you've finished cooking, c. leave the kitchen a shambles for your spouse/roommate/kids to clean.
  • I try to do "a" but end up doing "b".
