Seven Sporadic Questions: The Ungourmet

Here we are, several days into August, and I'll bet you've all been wondering and waiting on the edge of your seats for this month's edition of Seven Sporadic Questions. 

 Don't worry friends, it will be worth the wait as we are visiting with Kim of The Ungourmet.

I've been a follower of Kim's blog for quite some time.  Not only does she have awesome food (I've personally tried a few including the Mini Lime Cheesecakes), but she seems like a genuinely nice person with an effortless charm and ease that I would like to be able to absorb a bit of for myself.  
On with the questions!
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I stumbled onto the Pioneer Woman’s blog a couple of years ago and just loved it. After a while I began to visit some of her follower’s blogs as well. I decided I should give it a try myself.

2. What's your favorite thing to make for a crowd? 
It’s a rare occasion when I have a chance to cook for more than just my family. I’d have to say cupcakes….or maybe my dad’s famous potato salad.

3. What's your favorite thing to make for just you?
I’m the only one in my family that enjoys fresh tomatoes. I love to fix myself a nice Caprese Salad.

4. If you could invite 3 famous people (living or dead) to dinner, who would they be? Any particular reason? 

1. Leonardo DiVinchi –He was such a brilliant and fascinating human being. 2. Lucille Ball –She is such a funny lady! 3. Ree the Pioneer Woman –She’s fun and seems like such a real and down-to-earth person. Hey, maybe she could bring that sushi chef with her.

5. When you think of your childhood, do any favorite dishes come to mind?

My mom always made the most fantastic enchilada feasts! Oh and she always fixed me a dinner of corned beef and cabbage for my March birthday.

6. What do you have in your kitchen that you just couldn't do without? (besides your stove/oven of course) 

My salad spinner. I use that gadget for everything!

7. What's your favorite part of blogging? Do you think you'll keep doing it for a while? 
I actually have 2 favorite parts of blogging. 1. Learning new things and 2. Meeting fun new friends. Yes, I would like to keep it up for quite a while longer.

I love Kim! Awesome questions and awesome answers. After meeting Ree this past weekend, I can say that she would DEFINITELY be worth inviting over for dinner!

I also love reading Kim's blog. Sounds like she was inspired to start blogging for the same reason I was, the Pioneer Woman!
