Today we are in the kitchen with Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod. She may be one of the sweetest food bloggers out there. She’s also known for making the meanest cookie on the block. Speaking of, she just launched her latest e-cookbook, Holiday Cookie Cravings. It’s a must-have this holiday season!
What is your best memory in the kitchen (current or past)?
My dad is a great baker and has taught me a lot, in and out of the kitchen. I have the best memories of helping my dad make his famous cinnamon rolls. They are the best! I make them now, on my own, but they always remind me of my dad and home.
Whats the best thing about your kitchen?
Our kitchen is the center of our home. It is always filled with laughter and good food. It gets messy, but that is all part of the fun.
What is your favorite meal to prepare?
This is a tough one! For a quick week night meal, I love to make Crispy Gnocchi with Basil Pesto. My husband, Josh, and I also love to make homemade pizza. This Sweet Potato and Kale Pizza is one of my all-time favorites. And I always save room for dessert! Cookies are my “go to” dessert. I sort of have a cookie addiction:)

What does your dream kitchen look like?
We remodeled our kitchen 3 years ago, so I have my dream kitchen. It was a lot of work, but we love it!
What 3 guests would you like to have around your dinner table?
We always enjoy having family and friends at our dinner table.The more the merrier! If I could pick anyone, just for fun, I would love to eat dinner with Taylor Kitsch-also known as Tim Riggins from Friday Night Lights. I am not sure Josh would approve though:)
