Getting To Know Snickerdoodle

You are up!

1. What is your favorite music?

2. If possible, would you want to run your own restaurant and what would you call it?

3. Are you living where you want to be the rest of your life? If not, where do you want to be?

What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
("danger" is subject to your take on the word)

What do you expect to be doing in ten years?

Do you think that you are generally an optimist or a pessimist?

Why do you cook?

1. Probably my aunt. She's only 14 years older than me and she has plowed through major "milestones" in her life about 5 years in advance of me (getting married, having kids, etc.) She did it all so gracefully and honestly.

2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy

3. Rock/metal, classic rock, rap, techno/electronic, classical, some reggae (any of the Marley's)

1. (see above)
2. No, I don't think I would enjoy owning my own restaurant. I think it would kill some of my passion for food.
3. We're very comfortable in this area and I've lived here all my life, BUT, I would like to live somewhere more rural and scenic.

1. Who was your favorite teacher in school, and why?

2. If money were no object and you had a year to do anything at all you wanted, what would you do?

3. How do you want to be remembered when you are gone?

Hmmm... I'd say pregnancy is the most dangerous thing I've ever done

In ten years, I expect to be at the same job, but making more money in a director position, living in a house (finally), and hopefully no more than the 3 children we have .

Most definitely an optimist! I see opportunities in every situation, good or bad and I'm not easily discouraged. The light at the end of the tunnel usually isn't a train so there's no reason to live that way.

I cook because I enjoy it. I enjoy it for many reasons. I love science so the chemistry behind cooking and baking fascinates me. Cooking is one of the only creative outlets I have as I suck at pretty much every other creative hobby. It yields a wonderful sense of accomplishment for me. I look at my ability to cook as a major asset to the family. I consider it to be a my duty and one that I enjoy very much. I'm still learning a lot so cooking is, for me, very adventurous, and that is also appealing.

It's tough to pick a favorite food to cook! Usually, my love for making a food is directly related to my love for the flavor of the food . Basically, I love to cook things that are super delicious, which is a lot of food! I honestly can't even say if I like cooking or baking better.

My favorite food to eat... wow. I L-O-V-E cheese, fruit and chocolate with wine. I could live off of that for an eternity I think

We don't go out to eat much so I don't have strong feelings for any restaurants really except for maybe Famous Dave's. I like their ribs and their bread pudding is yummy

Never been to Canada but I have been to the U.P. of Michigan twice. Before I die I'd like to see the Northern Lights so I'd be happy to visit anywhere in Canada where I can get a nice show, wherever that is

If you had to spend a million dollars, but could not spend it on yourself, friends, or family, how would you spend it?

Barbara
1. Mrs. Rich, my high school biology teacher. She made learning fun and that's hard to do with teenagers. She recognized each student's abilities and weaknesses and and catered to that as much as possible.

2. Travel overseas and temorarily live in a couple different countries, deciding whether or not to make permanent residency there, if possible.

3. I want to be remembered as a good mom, grandma and wife. And I hope my children and/or grandchildren use some of my recipes
