TMI Tuesday: What's Cookin' Good Lookin'?

Just under a month left to donate to my Toys For Tots Fundraiser. It doesn't take much to help out! The majority of the donations I've received have been for $$5 to $10. Every little bit helps and it's for a great cause. Click the link to check out the post to see more infortmation, passed fundraisers and see the pictures! So, donate if you can please and feel free to post about this on twitter, your blog, tumblr, facebook; whatever social media you spend time online. It would be much appreciated. And thanks so much to those who have donated. :) Now, on with the questions! :)

What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’?

In the United States Thanksgiving is this week, so a lot of folks will be cooking up a storm in preparation. Many other holidays will occur over the next month around the world and everyone seems to celebrate with food, hence, the TMI Tuesday theme…Cooking.

1. Haagen-Dazs or Ben & Jerry’s?
I like both. Ben & Jerry's is awesome because they have some of the most unique flavors. If I want something simple like French Vanilla ice cream, then Haagen-Dazs wins out but if I want something funky, then definitely going for Ben & Jerry's.

2. What is always in your refrigerator?
Hmm. Milk, eggs, cheese, butter, Boar's Head lunch meat, yogurt, fruit, juice, carrot sticks and salsa.

3. What’s your worst kitchen disaster?
I dropped an entire dish of homemade lasagna once. It wasn't a small one, it was huge and serving 16 people. Broke the dish, had sauce and cheese and meat EVERY WHERE and all over myself. Thankfully it was just on it's way to the oven and not on the way out.

4. Favorite kitchen gadget?
This is so difficult for me! I'm in the kitchen a lot and love to cook and bake. So really, I have a ridiculous amount of gadgets and I have so many I love. To keep this short, I'll say I really love my KitchenAid food processor. It's so versatile and helpful. Especially here lately.

5. What was your last meal? Did you like it?
Sage roasted chicken and pumpkin risotto. And yes, I did. I was nervous about making pumpkin risotto but it turned out well. After this, I'll be making lemon poppyseed pancakes. Hopefully those turn out well. :)

6. What’s your favorite cookie?
Big soft sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies are my favorites. There's a place called Great American Cookie and I LOVE getting sugar cookies from there. They're so freaking good.

And I will be posting a cookie recipe via The Great Cookie Exchange Extravaganza! (See below ;)) As soon as I pick one I want to share.


Instead of just telling us about your favorite cookie why don’t you share the recipe via The Great Cookie Exchange Extravaganza

You nicely sum up my feelings about Ben & Jerry's. Every once in awhile I want ice cream with peanut butter, chocolate chunks, almonds, caramel and other stuff in it. And the ice cream must have a cool name to boot or I'm not interested.

Boar's Head is our favorite brand of lunch meat. You've got good taste! We should have mentioned our KitchenAid in our answer to #4, as it's given us many years of faithful service. That or our VitaMix blender. We look forward to your cookie recipe; your baking talent is more than apparent and we know it'll be worth making.

I'm not a pancake person...but lemon poppy seed pancakes sound delicious!

The lasagna does sound like a disaster! I bet you and Veronica would have fun cooking together

1. I prefer H - D just because I like the cleaner flavor and I just like ice cream. I'm not much of a sweets person, B & J loads up on the cookies, candies, etc.

3. Oh yes, thank goodness it wasn't hot. So what did you end up serving for dinner instead?

5. Oh yum. I wanna taste the pumpkin risotto.

6. So glad that you'll be doing the Cookie Exchange. Don't forget to email Jz.

Happy TMI Tuesday
