The co-owner of the Nile Theater and The Mantooth Group wants you to come to Madball and Comeback Kid at the Nile Tuesday, January 18.

What'd you eat for dinner last night? I had a bunch of mini-candy bars. It was the only thing on my desk.

Favorite food: Mac n' cheese--I have a sophisticated palate.

Least favorite food: Anything with coconut on it. Yuck.

Favorite dessert: Bailey's Cheesecake at Rula Bula.

Favorite local restaurant and meal to order there: I really like the Potato Leek Soup with Stilton Cheese at Cornish Pasty Co.

Favorite local bar and cocktail to order there: I do not drink, but the Mountain Dew at Macayo's is pretty good.

Favorite thing to cook at home: Vegetarian chili.

Favorite memory involving food: My grandma use to let us beat the schnitzel when were will little with a wooden mallet. It was fun but may explain why I don't eat meat now.

Recipe or food tip to share: Finally figured out the best "cheese" sauce for vegan mac n' cheese this Thanksgiving (I love real cheese, but I have people in my life who do not).

2 cups Daiya cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Tofutti sour cream
3 tbsp margarine
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
Make sure to blend it up in a food processor or use one of those blender sticks--makes it creamy.
