Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as you learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!
Ray’s question to Karen:
Q: Do you remember the Thanksgiving episode of Friends where Rachel, who was known to be a terrible cook, decided to make an English trifle for dessert? She failed to realize that two pages of the cookbook she was using were stuck together and she ended up mixing the trifle recipe with a recipe for shepherd’s pie. I doubt you’ve ever mistakenly mashed together a sweet and savory recipe in error, but have you ever combined two recipes by mistake?
A: No, I haven’t done that, but I have skipped over ingredients or instructions in a recipe before. I did that a few months ago with a recipe I was making alongside Tom. He did a literal double take and asked me “What are you doing?” “I’m doing what it says to do”, I said. His reply was, “What you are doing isn’t even close.” It was true, I had skipped two entire sentences, which does matter. In the end, we made something that still tasted good, but I’m sure will be better next time we make it.
Karen’s Question to Ray:
Q: Tom loves nuts, but despises hazelnuts for reasons I can’t fathom. Is there a nut that you particularly love above all others, or that you particularly dislike?
A: I’m not a big fan of Brazil nuts, although I wouldn’t say I despise them. As for one or two that I love above all others… macadamias and pistachios!
