Filled out at the request of the What's cookin'? hostesses.
1. first apron (that you can remember) : I had a few very fun, frilly hostess aprons from my great-grandmother when I was little. I used to play dress-up with them, and I wish I knew where they were now.
2. last (most recent) apron : I'll be submitting to Tie One On this weekend! Watch this space!
3. dream/favorite apron : I love this halter apron I bought at Bazaar Bizarre from HouseWears
4. dream sewing machine: Probably a Singer Featherweight.
5. what do you put in your pockets? or what strange thing have you ever found in them? My apron pockets? At home, nothing. If an apron has big pockets, I wear it to craft shows and use it to hold my change.
6. condiment(s) you can't live without : Does olive oil count? I don't use a lot of condiments, although I have a real fondness for Heinz ketchup, because I grew up in Pittsburgh.
7. do you wear more showy aprons or dutiful ones? Both.
8. favorite cooking gadget: I think my cheese grater.
9. cooking gagdet that promised the world but didn't deliver: My hand chopper from Pampered Chef. It's easier and less messy just to use a knife.
10. a recipe that you know by heart and any stories behind it: Probably just freeform stuff like cola ham and marinara sauce and soup. And if I mix a drink once, I seem to remember it forever.
