Favorite food: Enchiladas

Favorite dessert: Sopapillas

Favorite local restaurant and meal to order there: Four Peaks Brewing Company--garlic cheese beer bread.

Favorite local bar and cocktail to order there: The Rogue--Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Favorite thing to cook at home:
Garlic and shrimp stromboli

Favorite memory involving food: My father making burgers as a kid. He read in a recipe that you should add spice to the ground beef, and the only spice he could find was cinnamon. To this day, he still makes them that way.

Recipe or food tip to share: Boil chicken instead of grilling it--takes longer, but tastes 10 times better. Add garlic, lemon and tons of kosher salt to the water.
