What are your favorite foods?

Ice cream and refried beans!

Which recipe is your go-to?

I love to make and eat a butternut squash macaroni and cheese. It’s rich, creamy, cheesy, and contains a healthy serving of vegetables.

What are your essential kitchen tools?

Cooking is so much easier with a sharp kitchen shears, immersion blender, and herb stripper. However, my favorite tool is an ice cream maker.

What is your favorite food?

That’s tough… I love pizza. I’d be lying if I said anything else.

What is your go to recipe?

When in doubt, I always make baked ziti or tacos. It’s always good, easy, and you have leftovers.

What are your essential kitchen tools?

I love my giant measuring cups and silicone spatulas and spoons. They clean up so nicely and don’t scratch. And what would I do without my garlic press?!

What is your favorite food?

I really like my dad’s chili, made with chunks of potatoes. It has a nostalgic connection.

What is your go to recipe?

Chicken marinated in Italian dressing served with grilled vegetables is quick, easy, and delicious.

What are your essential kitchen tools?

My crank egg beater makes the fluffiest scrambled eggs. Also, my kitchenaid mixer is essential.

What is your favorite food?

My favorite is fajitas. You can customize the ingredients. I like the spice too! Plus, who doesn’t love anything stuffed into a tortilla?

What is your go to recipe?

I like making soup. You typically already have the right ingredients, you can get really creative, and the soup you make is always very satisfying.

What are your essential kitchen tools?

My stand mixer, a good knife, and a cutting board.
