About Holly


The basics: 
I'm 26. I work, I have 4 dogs, I love to shop, and cooking and eating are a few favorite activities of mine.

How many meals do you cook a week? 
I usually cook 4 or 5 times per week. I lived on my own for a few years in college, and I cooked like 3 times a week and ate out at Chinese, Subway, or pizza restaurants the rest of the time. It wasn't my proudest culinary period, but I was very busy working full time and going to school full time. Now I'm living with my family, and I cook for them regularly. It's nice to have people to cook for. 

What is your spirit food? 
Mayonnaise! I'm a typical fat girl, and I love mayo on everything that it is reasonable on (and some things that it's not).

What are the top 5 songs on your cooking playlist? 
It changes depending on my mood. During the summer I like to listen to music all day while I cook, take care of my dogs, and garden. I'm really into lavender, herbs, and roses, but that's only for a few months per year. During the winter months, which is about November through May in Oregon, I usually watch TV while I cook. 

Do you have food issues?
I don't have an allergies.  I guess my biggest issue is that I love food too much! There are some foods that I hate, though, like anything pickled, ketchup, raw onions, olives, and foods that are dangerously spicy.
