Bloggers UNplugged

Ok, this is all Courtney's fault over at Misadventures in Cooking.  She tagged me in a "Bloggers Unplugged" post.   I feel like I share alot about my life with you all but I am always up for a challenge.  Let's get to these questions and see if I can enlighten you some more!  Thanks Courtney, this looks like fun, perhaps I should wait until after I answer the questions to see if I am thankful eh?  Heeeerrree we goooooo!

1. Who or What inspired your blog? wonderful mother-in-law said to me one day, "You should start a blog with all of the things you cook and make".  I decided to give it a go, and well, here we are!
2. Who is your foodie inspiration?  The questions should be more like who ISN'T a foodie inspiration!  I get inspiration from my childhood, my heritage, and great new inspiration from foodie friends.  My husband is a pretty big inspiration, he is always challenging me to come up with new ideas and recipes.  
3. Your greasiest batter-splattered cookbook is?  I am proud to say I don't have any grease and batter-splattered cookbooks because I rarely use them. When I get desperate I go to Better Homes and Gardens and my Taste of Home cookbook I got for Christmas.  I do reference a handful on a sort of regular basis, but I am to much of a clean freak to let them get greasy or covered in batter! LOL
4. Tell us about the best thing that you have eaten in another country, where was it, what was it?  Since my international travels are limited, almost non existent, I am going to have to go with the most INCREDIBLE Bahama Mama, in the Bahamas.  Hey cocktails are food too!
5. Another food blogger’s table that I’d like to eat at?  I am going to be a true player unlike Courtney who cheated and put a whole bunch of people!  I say, Barbara over at Sunday at the Giacometti's.  Italian food is my love man......I can't help it!!  
6. What is the one kitchen gadget that you would ask for this year?  I want the pasta attachment for my kitchen-aide! 
7. Who taught you how to cook?  I taught me how to cook.  I am the youngest of 10 children, I never had to cook for myself.  I was also a child of the processed food era.....Spaghettio's anyone?
8. I’m coming for dinner, what is your signature dish? We are having a comforting family dinner.  We will start with someItalian Wedding Soup, and have Salisbury Steak for our main course.  Our sides will be, mashed potatoes and gravybaked mac and cheese, and grean beans!  Carb coma yet?  Let's finish it up with a great dessert, my personal favorite, Nutella cream crepes!  We will get on a treadmill afterward!
9. What is your guilty food pleasure? You really want to know?  French Silk Pie and Ravioli's from a can!
10. Reveal something about yourself that others would be surprised to learn.  Well, you might be surprised to learn....hmm....I don't know.  I was a teacher?  I am a musician and play the piano?   I wasn't always this gorgeous?  Oh wait, maybe that I am a grandmom?  38 and a grandmom?!?  Pfftt I am leaving it at that!
Now for the fun part, I get to tag 5 more bloggers to be Unplugged… (But really, you don’t have to.)
So there you have are IT!
Have a great Sunday evening friends!!
Your "unplugged" chefwannabe

  1. It's nice to see someone post like this, I have a difficult time posting these kinds of posts.
