Well hello. Allow me to introduce myself since I've been very bad at participating in this blog. I'm Melanie B (I can't believe there's three Melanies). I won the Baked cookbook through a giveaway and when I expressed my enthusiasm on my blog, Cami asked me if I wanted to participate in Delish. I love baking so I did a fist pump and said yes. So here we go.
When did you start baking / cooking?
My mom baked 6 loaves of bread (I have a big family) and a batch of cookies every Monday. From an early age I learned that homemade is way better than store bought.
What is your favorite kitchen tool?
My Bosch mixer and Cutco knives, the only really nice things in my kitchen. The rest is filled with 20 year old hand-me- down pans from my mom.
Do you have a favorite spice? If so, what is it?
I don't think garlic is a spice, but I put it in everything.
What is your favorite book?
My mom read Walk Two Moons to me when I was probably 11 years old. When we got to the end it took us 10 minutes just to get through one page because we were crying so hard. I still count it as my favorite.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I'm currently dreaming of Tahiti and Greece (maybe I've been watching too much Mamma Mia).
If you had to change your first name right now, what would you change it to?
That's a tough one. I've always liked my name because it was normal but not overly popular. I'd probably change it to something funny like Beyonce.
Where do you currently live?
Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana.
If you could eat one thing for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This week I'll be making the German Chocolate Cake from Baked, page 83. It's going to be divine.
