My Answers to Jennifer's Questions
  1. My favorite Holiday is Easter.  It is the day my Lord and Savior proved that he was the Living God and saved all who wish to be saved.
  2. My favorite author....this is a tough one, there are sooooo many....I would have to say Dean Koontz or maybe, John Grisham or maybe, CS Lewis or maybe, Janet Evanovich....It depends on what I feel like reading I guess.
  3. If I could have dinner with a famous person it would be Pope Francis, he amazes me with his openness to change and the ideas he is willing to share.  I would love to be able to discuss our faith and how it has transformed into what it is today.
  4. I actually started blogging because so many of my fb friends would remark that I should blog my recipes and my stories about Mom.  I was my Mom's main caregiver so I had a lot of time sitting in the living room with her while she watched game shows so I decided to give it a shot.
  5. My favorite quote is "Let it Go".  It covers just about every situation.

  10. The one food staple always in my kitchen is Olive Oil.
