My name is Aaron (or as some people spell it, Air-runn) and I like food. I like food, I like drinks, I like cooking, I like eating, I like all things kitchen related (even cleaning). I find recipes and inspiration from everywhere imaginable and I have a palette that enjoys EVERYTHING (except maraschino and coconut). I’m always down to try new and weird foods, ecstatic to enjoy a classic comfort food, and eager to try out a recipe in the kitchen.
^ I’m sure I was hungry or thinking about food in this picture.
For fun (well, at least it was fun for me), I’ve compiled a list of questions and answers for my amazing readers.
1. What was your favorite subject in school?
High school: History
2. What’s your favorite cocktail/drink at a bar?
Old Fashioned or Moscow Mule (or something with ginger)
3. Favorite movie?
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Trivia (you’re on a team and people get really competitive!)
5. Favorite Book?
Catcher in the Rye or The Fountainhead
6. Favorite Color?
7. Favorite Animal?
8. Favorite food?
Anything with seafood! I LOVE French food though.
9. Favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving. I get to eat a lot without people judging me!
10. Favorite number?
8 (or any number with 8 in it)
11. Have you been out of the country?
YES! I’ve been lucky to travel to so many cool places but there are still so many more I want to go to!
12. Do you speak any other languages?
Not so much. I’m so-so at French. I can follow conversations and read almost anything but my speaking is pretty bad. Oh, and I speak Spanglish. And Pig Latin.
13. Do you have any siblings?
I have a half brother and half sister.
14. Name a food you cannot live without.
15. What’s one thing most people probably don’t know about you?
I’ve broken the same ankle twice…. when I fell down while walking.
16. How do you like your steak?
17. What is your favorite TV show (cooking and non-cooking)?
Tough one. I really like Barefoot Contessa because her recipes always turn out well but I’m a huge fan of Top Chef as well. As far as non-cooking, I’d have to go with Modern Family, Downton Abbey, or Breaking Bad.
18. What foods do you dislike?
Coconut and maraschino/anything cherry flavored. While I love fresh cherries, I can’t stand anything cherry flavored
19. Favorite restaurant?
Il Terrazzo Carmine, Flying Fish and Revel are probably my current favorite restaurants in Seattle.
20. Where would you visit if you had the chance?
So lucky to have gone to so many amazing cities and countries but there are so many more I’d like to go to. I really want to go to Aruba.
21. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
Might have to go with BRUNCH or dinner. Something about a lazy, leisurely, afternoon meal of breakfasty items and a bloody mary is one of the most soothing things (which is odd because I’m not a huge fan of breakfast items). Otherwise, I’m all about dinner.
22. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Night person….. all the way!
23. Red wine or white wine?
Depends what I’m eating, but usually red. No, white. No, red.
24. What is your best childhood memory?
For my 6th birthday my mom picked me up from school in a limo and took me to my favorite restaurant for dinner.
25. Favorite pizza topping?
Depends on my mood, but I love an olive oil or pesto base opposed to tomato sauce and Tom Douglas has made me fall in love with eggs on pizza!
26. Butter or margarine?
Butter. Without a doubt.
27. Favorite ice cream?
Anything with coffee! Or Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food!
28. The best thing you’ve ever ate?
I’ll get back to you on that!
