I love food. Granted I’m rather picky about what I eat, but food is a great thing. And I prefer to make my own food. I’ve been cooking since I was about 10 mostly because it was a comfort. Now because it puts me in the right frame of mind.
I’ve mentioned I’m a sucker for chocolate. But I wouldn’t consider it my favorite food – my favorite sweet yes. The only sweet I really eat except pie. I like pie – pumpkin pie is my favorite with a little dab of fresh whipped cream – heaven.
But my favorite food is really hard to nail down. My favorite everyday meal I make is marinated steak and roasted vegetables. But who doesn’t love steak. It’s my normal Sunday night dinner and I eat on it for a few meals afterwards too. Leftovers are always used.
When I go out to eat I’ll eat at most any joint, but I prefer Italian food and growing up in New York City I had access to some of the greatest Italian chef’s this side of the Atlantic. Going out is the one time I indulge in pasta otherwise I don’t. But Italian food hits so many pasta dishes I love – I’m a huge fan of butternut stuff ravioli in a browned butter sauce – any sauce really.
