Don't miss a single recipe from Picky Palate: sign up for my weekly newsletter



Hi Everyone,

Francie, from Ramblings of a Frantic Home Cook let me know that she just tagged me, so I thought I’d play along. She’s got a great blog, check it out. I’ve enjoyed reading fun facts about other bloggers, so let’s hope I can make mine somewhat interesting.

5 things about myself

1. I met my husband when I was 16 and knew I would marry him. I was at a homecoming dance with my very first date and remember seeing Cullen from a distance, at that moment, I knew I had to have him. I always get what I want! LOL, totally kidding.

2. Had a horrible akward stage growing up and cringe every time I see my “mullet” haircut during my chubby pre- teen stage. Thanks Mona. I can’t imagine asking for that haircut!

3. I had rotten teeth as a kid, silver front caps and all. Somehow, I still turned out to be a dental hygienist!

4. I have a horrible phobia of flying kites. Won’t do it. It totally freaks me out!

5. Wish I could remember more about living in Greece when I was about 4. We lived there for 6 months while my dad was in the army. Slight memories of children eating fish eyeballs, that’s about it. Oh and the rose flower flavored ice cream, ickkk!

I am tagging 4 of my contesting buddies…

1. Catherine from The Dish is hilarious, fun and a wonderfully talented cook! I love her blog.

2. Camilla from Enlightened Cooking has a beautiful new food blog that I have been enjoying. She is one of the most talented recipe contesters and cookbook writers there is!

3. Karen from Family Style Food has a terrific blog. Her and I have been to so many of the same cook-offs over the years. It’s been fun getting know Karen and her adorable family.

4. Birdie from the Saucy Bird is a newbie to recipe contesting and has a new blog as well. I love her recipes!

    Kites! I agree! They freak me out! And clowns! Is there anything more scary?? That’s so sweet about putting the whammy on your husband! Our guys never knew what hit ’em!

    Hi Jamie,
    Are there Dentists on every corner in CA too? They are popping up everywhere around here. Guess it’s good, I’ll never be hurting to find a job!

    Hi Catherine,
    Glad to know I’m not the only kite freak!!
