#1. bestmomma’s question. If you could copy the cooking expertise and ability of one person, who would it be?
In my dream world: Susanna Foo, a Philadelphia restauranteur. She is famous for her Chinese with French influence. I have never enjoyed fried rice again since going to her flagship restaurant several years ago, hers was so flavorful and not-greasy. But really? Rachael Ray or Robin Miller. I love how they are able to pull together flavorful meals quickly, and in Robin's case, "morph" them in to the next meal too.
#2. What’s the first red food that comes to your mind?
Strawberries. Hoping to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie this weekend.
#3. How do you eat your strawberries?
Usually in smoothies with a banana, pineapple, and some OJ to blend.
#4. Share a recipe that uses cherries.
Mmm...cherries are on sale around here and we have gone through about four pounds this week, just pitted and ready to go!
But for a real recipe, I defer to my best friend, who sent me an amazing one a few years ago. However, I can't find it right now so I'll give the super-easy one instead!
Cherry Chocolate Smoothie
1 bag frozen cherries
1 half-gallon chocolate milk (can be soy, almond, or rice)
Place both in blender (make sure cherries are still frozen). Blend to milkshake consistency. Enjoy!
