SweetRosie tagged me for a Meme a while ago, and I'm just getting around to responding now:

What Were You Cooking/Baking 10 Years Ago

I was baking nothing and cooking a variety of pasta with different toppings. Life was completely different then, with no kids and newly married, so we ate out more and sat in front of the TV to eat our dinner!!

What were you Cooking/Baking 1 year ago

Pretty much what I'm baking and cooking now. Cakes from scratch, making my own pizza dough and trying to cook a vegetable in a way that my kids will eat it.

Five Snacks You Enjoy

Peach Mango Salsa and Multigrain Corn Chips
Potato Chips

Five Recipes You Know By Heart

I only know two by heart - Ina's Chocolate Chip Cookies and my own Spaghetti Bolognaise recipe

Five Culinary Luxuries You Would Indulge In if You Were A Millionaire

Viking 6 burner range/double oven
French Door Refrigerator with ice maker and TV in the doors
Pump Espresso Machine plumbed to the house so you didn't have to fill it up with water
Personal Chef to come over on the nights I don't feel like cooking.
Maid to clean up!!

Five Foods You Love to Cook/Bake

All kinds of desserts
Any thing in Ina Gartens five cookbooks

I'm still thinking about this one, but it would have to involve French Fries. I really like French Fries.
