If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is an easy answer: Pasta! I love all kinds of pasta – noodles, shells, stuffed, baked – preferably with pesto or a rich cream sauce and doused with parmesan cheese. Yum, my mouth is watering just thinking about pasta!

What’s your cooking style? Are you an Emeril, a Betty Crocker or a Julia Child? I’m definitely a Betty Crocker. I like simple, traditional meal recipes and gravitate toward comfort foods that I can whip up with ingredients I already have on hand. When I find a recipe I like, I rarely deviate from it – my philosophy is why take a chance and ruin a good thing?

What one food exemplifies your personality? Just like my love for pasta and all things comfort food, I tend to shy away from trying new flavors, especially spicy foods. So, my food personality resembles that of mac and cheese – warm, easy-going, and dependable.

What’s your foodie confession? I once purchased a bunch of cookies and put them on a tray to pass off as freshly baked. I’m sure I didn’t fool anyone but I tried!

Favorite foodie TV show? We’re BIG fans of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives in our house!
