Just 10 Things About Me - The Foodie Collection

1. I am a bit of a closet foodie. I like all those chef competition shows from Top Chef to Chopped to Worst Cooks in America.
.



2. I can't help to giggle watching the original Iron Chef shows from Japan. The bad dub job into English reminds of watching those old Godzilla movies on tv when I was a kid. They even use the sound effects like you'd hear on the power rangers!
.
3. I wouldn't want to judge any of those shows however especially Iron Chef. The one where someone made squid ice cream which was this horrid gray color really made me squeamish.
.
4. I wish more recipes were featured on the shows when the big star celebrity chefs have to use such items as canned green beans, frosted flakes and a jar of peanut butter. I actually have on hand canned green beans, frosted flakes and peanut butter! I don't have and have never been able to afford proscuito.
.



5. My celebrity chef crush would have to be Michael Symon. The dude is like a rock star when it comes to celebrity chefs. I love his laugh and we both share a common bond... a certain fondness for...


BACON!

Symon even has a tattoo that says, "Got Pork?" What's not to love?
.


6. My cooking style more resembles Paula Deen. Homestyle cooking all the way! Mmmmmmm, real butter! I wish I cooked more like Elizabeth Faukner. Talk about a serious threat in the kitchen. She can do it all! How she missed being an Iron Chef, I just don't understand!
.


7. I can't understand why the contestants on Hell's Kitchen never know how to cook risotto, beef wellington or scallops. Have they not watched this show before they applied? Every season chefs on that show must be able to cook those items and yet, there are always a handful that can never make those dishes!
.


8. The next time I am in Los Angeles, I want to go to The Foundry and get Chef Greenspan's Grilled Cheese Sandwich, if I can afford it. It is supposedly the best grilled cheese sandwich ever and it's on raisin bread!
.


9. At Christmas time, I love to bake for my family, friends and neighbors. I turn into some sort of weird, whacked out hippie chic version of Betty Crocker just after Thanksgiving. I make so many goodies that by January 1, I don't want to see any more fudge until November!
.


10. One of my favorite ingrediants is Sriracha Sauce! (Also known by many as "Rooster Sauce.") My son and I discovered this spicy Asian sauce while trying to figure out the recipe for Applebees' Dynamite Shrimp Sauce! The secret ingrediant was Sriracha Sauce!
