My blog friend, Karen posted this list and I found it really fun to learn more about her. I've decided to take her challenge and post my answers. I'm surprised how many of her answers I didn't have to change to fit me.

E. Essential food item: Homemade breads
F. Favorite color: Probably blues, but also browns and yellows. I least like pink.
