Tag! You're it!

Shrimp & Glitz tagged me in her post "Tagged: 8 Questions!" So now I have a few questions to answer.  I am a bad blog friend has taken me forever to get this completed and posted so I apologize!  Thank you for tagging me Shrimp & Glitz

1. What is your favorite dessert?

If it isn't chocolate, it isn't dessert!  I love a deep, dark, lush chocolate fudge cake more than anything else!

2. Ever tried to cook something and fail miserably?

Oh goodness yes!  Remember this Thanksgiving disaster?  My first attempt at making rice crispy squares was a flop too as I forgot to grease the pan and had to soak them out.  In my defence, they aren't something my mom ever made when I was growing up so it's not like I had ever seen them made from scratch until I made them myself.

3. Is there a dish you haven't made yet but really want to?

I want to make Ina's chocolate cake.  It looks so good in the photos and I love a thick thick icing!  I really only eat cake for the icing.  I really hope it tastes better than any of the cakes I have baked from scratch as I have never found one that blows me away.  Oh who am I kidding?  I will buy the box mix at the gourmet store!

4. What is your favorite food?

I won't say chocolate as that would be the obvious answer!  I think pizza is my favourite but it has to be good pizza.  I have been spoiled in my life and once you have had pizza in Italy it is hard to go back to the North American pizza chains.

5. What is your least favorite food?

There are so many foods I can't stand it's hard to narrow it down to just one!  Beef, olives, lobster, cilantro are the first ones that come to mind.

6. Do you have any seasonal meals you like?

Oh I love butternut soup in the fall, roasted veggies, rosemary chicken, a big winter sounds like I do most of my eating between October and January!

7. What is your comfort food?

I don't know that I really have one as I don't tend to be an emotional eater but on a cold day I love a bowl of soup and toast with butter.

8. Chocolate: milk, dark or white?

Dark...65-70% is ideal though I do love those little hugs - they are a perfect blend of white and milk chocolate.

Now it is my turn to tag 8 people to answer these questions! So here we go!

I have a friend who hates cilantro too...
I'm allergic to chocolate- I will send all chocolate I have your way :)

Chocolate, pizza & soup, I'm right there with you. And cilantro is yuck for me too. I loved this foodie post.

Chocolate & pizza I am down with. But how do you NOT like lobster???! You need to try lobster while in Maine and you will be a convert; prob like pizza in Italy, the "other" pales afterward.

I just cant warm up to the idea of eating a bug...and anything I have to dismember to eat is on my avoid list. Oh and I just dont like the taste.

And now?
After reading your post?

I had to laugh at your response about not liking lobster! At least I now know what to make you if you ever come down to my area of Florida - my luscious four layer dark chocolate cake and pizza.

I received The Happy Baker this weekend! Thank you!

Ever since we had pizza in Italy, the pizza here in the US doesn't do much for me. And my Nana always makes me chicken noodle soup with toast and butter when I visit her in Canada. I love it!

Autumn is truly the most comforting time to eat. And a little chocolate afterwards never hurts either!
