Getting To Know My Blog Daughers: Ingrid From 3 B's...baseball, baking, and books
You've heard from Nella, so now it's time to get to know Ingrid a little better! Ingrid blogs at 3 B's...baseball, baking, and books. Stop by and say hello. Be sure and tell her her blog Mom Dianne sent you! ;o)
Thanks to both of you for playing along and now without further ado....Here's Ingrid!
1. What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with the name?
3 B's...baseball, baking, and books. Those are three things that I really enjoy a lot and spend what little free time I have doing. They also all happen to start with the letter "B".
2. How long have you been blogging?
Since June, LOL, I had to check. It's gone by so FAST
3. What made you start your own blog?
I'm not sure it was any one thing. But the first blog I found and read was Bakerella. I'm not very daring when it comes to leaving my comfort zone. I've referred to myself as a scaredy cat baker. Blogging and reading other blogs has helped me be a bit more adventurous. I still have a waaaaaays to go.
4. Do you cook everyday? Or is there a specific time in the week that you cook more than others?
No, I don't cook everyday. I have a set of twins and a singleton. The Twins are VERY active. More often than not we are only home in the evenings about three out of seven sometimes not even that much. When we are home I cook especially on weekend mornings. My children love breakfast. Saturday mornings are Mom's and that means eggs, biscuits, hash browns, and sausage or bacon. Sunday's are Dad's and he makes pancakes.
5. What is your favorite kitchen tool?
Hmmmm, fave baking tool is my Cuisinart 7 speed digital hand mixer. (Not too often do I use my Kitchenaid.) My fave cooking tool is my Furi knife sharpener. Another cool thing in my kitchen is the floor to ceiling bookcase my Dad made for me for my birthday.
6. If money was no object and you could take a food vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
This is a tough question. I grew up between here in FL and NYC so I've eaten A LOT of different (authentic) cuisines though not at famous restaurants that everyone has heard about. These were at "mom & pop" places. My Dad loves eating and it was him that exposed me to different foods. I didn't appreciate it then. To answer your question I'd like to go to Italy for the food and France for the pastries.
7. If you could spend the day with one famous cook/chef and cook with them for fun, who would it be and why?
Geeesh, I struggle with choosing just one of anything but I think maybe Paula Deen. She seems so real and personable. I just hope I focus enough to learn a thing or two.
8. What is your favorite food to eat?
Finally an easy question.....salad!
9. What is your favorite food to cook?
Anything that ALL THREE of my children eat without complaining!!!!
10. If I was going to cook one recipe from your site, which one would you recommend and why?
I only have two dishes posted on there but out of the two I'd suggest the Bavarian Sausage Hot Pot! ALL THREE of my children liked it and they each had seconds!
