Do you have any pets?
Who is your favorite person to cook for?
What personality trait do you value most in yourself?

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?

4. Would you get more satisfaction from preparing a perfect meal for ten people or from teaching those ten people how to prepare that meal?

1. Yes I would and I would call it something silly like "YUM YUM"

2. I have 2 children, a 9yr old daughter and a son who will be 4 on the 9th :)

3. My MOM, because she has raised myself and 2 siblings on her own without ever complaining, she survived cancer and a triple heart bypass, she has lost everything more than once and started over, she has always been upbeat and young at heart :)

I've got a cat named Nala that I found abandoned in the roof of my house.

I love cooking for anyone that appreciates it.

This is a tuffy but I would say my willingness to listen.

1. Mrs Binda my math teacher because she helped us even if we asked the same questions several times.

2. I would travel the world and help children in need where I can.

3. I would be happy if everyone I knew in life had one good thing to say about me.

4. From teaching those people how to prepare the meal.

Lots of things make me happy but if I have to name the most important things I would say peace, health and stability in my home.

I can't stand fighting or arguing and I never go to bed angry.

Can I make a suggestion? How about we compose a list of questions on a thread that everyone that wishes to participate can answer. Not sure if it's just me but I'm struggling to keep up with asking and answering :(

Answer in your own time...this isn't life or death...it's supposed to be fun not a chore. By listing it under each person who elects to be questioned the "Spotlight" is on you.

Also, do not feel obligated to answer a question, just because it it asked. If something is too personal, don't answer.

Here is the link to the criteria...it's very short: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ria-68622.html

Ha, yeah, might be able to see a little music love sneaking in there

Great guests - I hadn't thought of Elton John but he'd be SO great; great outfit, great conversation, then some great high energy music to finish the evening! Awesome.

Must admit it was hard to pick only 3 :) and since I couldn't imagine naming my son Elton I named him Daniel "after the song instead"
I wanted to name my daughter Nikita but my ex husband didn't like it..lol!
Her second name is Anastacia though, another music related decision.
Some women buy shoes, I buy LP's and CD's!
