My least liked food is… Brussels sprouts.

My favorite food for fall is a baked Sweet Potato with cinnamon, butter, and brown sugar.

The first thing I learned to cook was Chili! When I was 3 or 4 years old, my father taught me the secret ingredient to his delicious chili – after I was in on the secret, I loved to join him at the Chili Cook-Off competitions and help cook and sell to the judges.
