    1. What is the most complicated dish you have ever prepared?
    Tamales. One year, I got it in my head that I was going to make tamales for Christmas (a Mexican tradition) and I did it by myself. Mind you, Mexican families always gather and make them together as it's a lot of work. But, I did it by myself. I was so tired, and the kitchen looked like a cyclone had come through, but they came out so good. I have not done it since. hehehe!

    2. How do you cook vegetables? (Boil, steam, roast)
    Mostly steam or roast. I loved roasted vegetables. One vegetable dish I really love and do often is I saute green beans in a little bit of oil with chopped garlic and a few chopped grape tomatoes. Yum yum!

    3. What do you like to cook on the grill?
    Steak and I love grilled burgers. Vegetables on the grill are good too.

    4. What would you eat more of, if it were not so expensive?
    Seafood. Namely fresh halibut or sea bass and scallops.

    5. What is something you eat at restaurants, but seldom fix at home?
    Desserts like cakes or pies. I love to bake, but I don't very often.

    Weekend plans? I need to rest and I'm hoping I get to. Too much drama in my family right now. "Calgon, take me away!"

    1. What is the most complicated dish you have ever prepared?
    Just last week. My friend found this recipe for mandel bread and wanted me to make it for Passover dinner. Oy vey!! It took all day. Mix dough. Refrigerate. Break into bricks. Freeze. Roll out dough. Refrigerate. Add this. Add that. Put in oven. Take out of oven. Let rest for an hour. Put in freezer. Take out of freezer. Bake. Bake again. Bake one more time! And it wasn't even that good. I threw the recipe away.

    2. How do you cook vegetables? (Boil, steam, roast)
    Steam or roast. I like my veggies on the softer side. Restaurants always serve them too undercooked.

    3. What do you like to cook on the grill?
    Hot dogs. Sue me. I love a good grilled hot dog. I bought a Cuisinart counter grill (updated George Foreman) and it made really good hotdogs.

    4. What would you eat more of, if it were not so expensive?
    Pine nuts! I like them in my pasta dishes and vegetables but, yikes-a-hooty, they're so expensive.

    5. What is something you eat at restaurants, but seldom fix at home?
    Fish. I can't ever get it to come out right and then the house smells for days.

    Weekend plans?
    I need to go out and clean up the landscaping even though the landscaper will be doing it soon. It's just bugging me.

    Really?
    I guess you are one of those people who cleans before the maid comes as well.

    If I ever get rich enough to have a maid and landscaping guys, I will put my feet up and wait for them to come do the things that I am paying them for.
