I was invited (I hang my head in shame) weeks ago to partake in the Food Bloggers Unplugged Questionnaire and promised Ronnie at Morris Town Memos who invited me that I would get to doing the post “soon” – well soon seems to have come and gone a month ago, but better late than never they say, here I am today, taking part and paying the fun forward. Thanks again Ronnie and my sincere apologies for the lateness in taking part.
1. What or who inspired you to start your blog?
My hubby Pete. After I wrote my book “The Complete Cook Book”, Pete suggested I start a blog sharing my book online. Here I am over a year later and thoroughly enjoying my time posting recipes and sharing more about our life.
2. Who is your foodie inspiration?
Hands down , my mom. Where would any of us be without the guidance and advice from our moms!
3. Your greasiest most batter splattered cook book is?
This would have to be the book I am STILL “borrowing” from my mom – her late mom’s “Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book” excerpts of which I am sharing with you, my readers. Yes, I will return it to my mom just as soon as I have shared the last chapter with you.
4. The best thing you have ever eaten in another country, where was it and what was it?
I’m not sure I have eaten “whatever” this is yet – but to date, it would have to be dhalpouri’s and roti’s from when we were living in Mauritius.
5. Another Food Blogger’s table you would like to eat at?
There are so many that it is honestly very difficult to name just one, however, in the spirit of the game, I would have to say Celi over at The Kitchen’s Garden
. Celi is the most inspirational and remarkable woman who with her hubby John are all about sustainable micro farming in an organic environment out on the Prairies of the MidWest. Simply put; growing their own food and cooking it. Celi is an endless fountain of information and I learn something new every day I visit her incredible blog.
6. What one kitchen gadget would you like Santa to bring you? (if money were no object)
Well if money were no object, I would say a KitchenAid with all the extra attachments.
7. Who taught you how to cook?
8. I’m coming to you for dinner, what is your signature dish?
I can’t say that I really have a signature dish, I go through stages of “specialities” but if I really had to say just one thing – cupcakes so I guess you won’t be enjoying a very nutritious dinner here then.
9. What is your guilty food pleasure?
Hmm, depends on my mood but it would definitely be something savoury and no doubt something unhealthy like crisps.
10. Reveal something about yourself that others would be surprised to learn?
I could never kill to eat, not even a fish or a chicken. Bit of a double standard possibly, but I am more than grateful to only see the end result in the butchers fridge.
Lastly I meant to pay this forward to 5 other food bloggers. I have noticed so many of my fellow bloggers in the past weeks take part in this questionnaire, so ask those who have not taken part, to copy and paste these questions and share your answers.
