Food Face - Keely Steger

Keely is a blogging friend of mine and you can find her fine food at A Time To Eat. Keely is our latest food face, one with her grannie's old cast iron skillet and a penchant for lasagna rolls stuffed with spinach and shrimp. And scroll down for a picture of Keely with good ol' P Dub herself. Keely, is she really that beautiful in real life?

What foods do you remember most from your childhood?
I grew up in the era of convenience food, but Sunday lunches after church were always a big deal. More than anything, I loved pot roast Sundays, when we would pull the car into the garage and be hit over the head with the delicious smell of the roast, potatoes, and carrots, falling apart deliciously in the oven. I also remember my Grannie's biscuits and gravy, which she always made when out-of-town family came to visit.

What foods can you not get enough of?
Raw almonds and dark chocolate chips, a great bowl of chili smothered with cheese (with Fritos on the side), dark roasted coffee with French vanilla creamer in the mornings, peanut butter- spread on anything or nothing.


What is your favorite restaurant?
Victoria's- The Pasta Shop: a little Italian place on Campus Corner in Norman, Oklahoma. It's the date spot of choice for my husband and I and the only place that can get him to truly savor his food. It's that good. He always gets chicken lasagna and I get the lasagna rolls stuffed with spinach and shrimp. Just had it for my birthday!

What would you fill your belly with?

Homemade chicken pot pie. It's so rich, hearty, and yet simple. I love making the first one of the cold weather season.

What are your essential kitchen tools?
My Wusthof 8 inch chef's knife, Kitchen Aid mixer, white vinegar and water in a spray bottle (we use it to clean EVERYTHING), big cookie sheets and Silpats, the big cast-iron skillet my Grannie gave me.


Have you ever had any major kitchen disasters?
I almost lost the tip of my thumb once while chopping onions. I've never been so close to passing out. Thankfully, no stitches needed.

Yes, yes she is. Kind of makes me sad that the picture I have with her is after I stood in line sweating for about 2 1/2 hours.
She was lovely and gracious. (And my son did all the talking.)

Lovely, gracious and an iconic narcissist.

She is. But PW is laughing all the way to the bank.

Jessica said...

Dude, I just laughed 'cause you refer to her as "PW."

But more power to her for making lots of money. Tell her to pass some my way...

I also use my vinegar-water spray bottle for everything (minus toilets). I thought that was PW! Fun post. Thanks for sharing!
