Donna tagged me with this kitchen meme.

2. How many cookbooks do you own? ?? 20

3. How often do you refer to a cookbook each week? 2 times

4. Do you collect recipes from other sources? friends, internet. I love Food Network

5. How do you store those recipes? scribble them down on whatever is available, leave them laying around the house or shove them inside my recipe basket.

6. When you cook, do you follow the recipe pretty closely, or do you use recipes primarily to give you ideas? I always follow the recipe closely, obsessively.

7. Is there a particular ethnic style or flavor that predominates in your cooking? Italian and Mexican.

8. What's your favorite kitchen task related to meal planning and preparation? Cutting veggies and using my favorite food chopper.

9. What's your least favorite part? Unloading the dishwasher, that is why I pay my son to do it.

10. Do you plan menus before you shop? Sometimes. :-0

11. What are your three favorite kitchen tools or appliances? Pampered Chef food chopper, Henkels knife, Bosch.

12. If you could buy one new thing for your kitchen, money was no object, and space not an issue, what would you most like to have? A remodeled and larger kitchen. Hey, money is not an object!!

13. Since money and space probably are objects, what are you most likely to buy next? Tortillas for dinner tonight.

14. Do you have a separate freezer for storage? Yes, it is a full size refridge/freezer and it is in the garage. Holds extra milk, soda, water bottles, Eggos, frozen pizza and a giant turkey that I'd better use soon.

15. Grocery shop alone or with others? I can get out alone now that the children are older but I usually have a little helper or two.

18. What's the first thing you ever learned to cook, and how old were you? Like Donna, cookies.

19. How did you learn to cook? My sisters. XXOO

20. Tag two other people to play. Want to play? Let me know where I can read your answers. You can answer any or all of the questions in the comments if you don't have a blog.

NOTE: That is not my kitchen in the photo. I would like a kitchen like that some day though. I would even cook, clean, bake bread and possibly sleep in that kitchen if I had it. ;-)

Thank you Janet! I loved reading your meme :o)
It's always fun to learn new things about you!

It is amazing what we can learn about people from their blogs. My husband says he knows me better now that I blog.

I am glad that is not your kitchen. I would be envious.

Amy said...

I would also sleep in that kitchen! It also makes me feel better to know that your family eats Eggos. Very fun!

Eddie said...

Greetings, I was reading some blogs and came across your blog. I really enjoy how it makes such good reading.

I'll come by again.

Janet said...

Amy, even though we enjoy fresh whole wheat pancakes and pizza dough I almost always have Eggos and pizza in the freezer for the real life moments ;-)

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
