Favorite food: La Grande Orange margherita pizza.

Least favorite food: All seafood.

Favorite dessert: Oregano's chocolate chip pizza cookie.

Favorite local restaurant and meal to order there: I love going to Z'Tejas and eating cornbread and the Tejas Trio. And, if I'm really hungry, I'll get a bowl of the tortilla soup, too.

Favorite cocktail: Pinot grigio.

Favorite thing to cook at home: Southwestern mac 'n cheese with chicken.

Favorite memory involving food: Every Thanksgiving and Christmas meal I can remember, my grandmother brings her famous "Grandma Rolls," and my dad will toss one to everyone at the table. It's a fun way to start the meal!

Recipe or food tip to share:
I take time before each meal to pray and give thanks to the Lord for His many blessings. Sometimes I have to slow down and remember that everything I have is because of Him.
