Since I’m a food blogger, I thought I’d share some foodie facts about me:
1. My favorite cuisine is Greek. I guess since my parents were born and raised in Greece, that better be my favorite! I don’t have a least favorite.
2. My favorite food that I rarely get to eat is sushi. My least favorite food that I make sure I never eat is liver and onions.
3. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE spicy food. I’m not big on sweet and sour food.
4. My favorite dessert is Opera Cream Cake from a local bakery. My least favorite is cheesecake.

7. My favorite fruit is watermelon. My least favorite is grapefruit.
8. My favorite vegetable is asparagus. My least favorite are beets.
9. My favorite food memory is eating a Frisch’s hot fudge cake after giving birth to my oldest child. My worst food memory is devouring an entire box of Twinkies as a kid and then throwing it all up.
10. As a kid, I loved my mom’s apple pie. As a kid I hated my mom’s stuffed peppers.
11. I love the smell of freshly baked bread. I hate the smell of cooked cabbage.

14. My favorite breakfast food are donuts (see recipe below). My least favorite is anything with bran.
15. My favorite thing about blogging is being a part of this blogging community. I’m humbled daily by all the talent I see around me. These folks are incredible! They are a supportive and giving community. I am also honored and blessed that readers take the time to explore my blog, read my posts, and try my recipes. I get absolutely giddy when I am able to talk to you! I can’t get enough! I am thrilled I have the opportunity to share recipes with not only my family and friends, but with all the lovely readers out there who love food as much as I do! What I like least about blogging is the feeling that there are so many recipes and not enough time to try them all!
Now, your turn. What food facts can you share with me?
