Are You a Thin Crust or Thick Crust Pizza?

chicago deep dish pizza

Do you like pizza? There’s little that I like better than a delicious slice of pizza. Of course, I have my own opinions in the thick crust vs thin crust debate… but I believe that all pizza is good pizza. And that’s what my latest quiz celebrates!

I have written many pizza quizzes over the years, but I have never written a quiz to help pick your ideal pizza crust type. Take my latest quiz to find you pizza style: Are You a Thin Crust or Thick Crust Pizza? Let me know what you get and what you think of your result!

Discussion question: What’s your favorite pizza in the whole world?

What Basic Recipe Should You Make?

Do you like to cook? I try to cook as often as I can at home, and often what I make is not very elaborate. I believe that good home cooked food can be the simplest recipes if prepared well. I used to not be very proud of my cooking because it’s often so basic, but over the years I have learned to embrace simplicity – especially if it’s paired with high quality ingredients.

If you ask me, too many of us think we have to keep up with lifestyle bloggers, television, and Pinterest when it comes to things in the home. Not every meal has to be groundbreaking to be good – and it certainly doesn’t have to be photography worthy. Thinking about my love of simple recipes led me to write my latest quiz today, and hopefully it will inspire you to whip up something simple and delicious of your own.

Do you also like simple cooking? Take my latest quiz to find out what basic recipe would suit you! What Basic Recipe Should You Make? Let me know what you get on the quiz. Would you actually make the recipe.

For simplicity, I didn’t include any of the recipes pictured. However, if you would like the recipe for that outcome (or any outcome), simply ask me in the comments, and I will make it happen!

Discussion question: What is your favorite simple recipe to make?

What Flavor Jelly Donut Are You?

I love jelly donuts! They were the first donut I really liked as a kid, and every time I have one, they take me back to my childhood. I don’t know why, but I definitely think that a jelly donut is best enjoyed in the cooler months. I love to have mine with a warm cup of tea or coffee.

New Quiz: What Kind of Food Cart Are You?

Which food cart should you go to? Take my latest quiz to find out!

Do you like eating at food carts? I think they can be fun. Some of they are really good, and I like that the low overhead for them makes them very creative at times. My city has a lot of food trucks and food carts, and I’ve really enjoyed sampling them over the years. I’m lucky enough to have a breakfast food truck near me, as well as taco, donut, and sandwich carts nearby. Closer to down town, there are all sorts of interesting food carts and trucks – including one devoted to just guacamole. (So crazy!)

My favorite way to go to food trucks and carts is to find a bunch close to each other. That way everyone can eat whatever they want, and you can even sample a little something from each one. I first saw this in dense cities like New York and DC, but now even in Austin you can find a food trailer park full of different food stalls, trucks, and carts. These are super fun places that often include free live music, movies, and fresh farm produce.

The sheer fun of summer food carts inspired my latest quiz:  What Kind of Food Cart Are You?  (food truck quiz to come, I’m sure!) Let me know what you get on this one below, and let me know if you enjoy food carts in general.

New Quiz: The Mediterranean Food Test

various mediterranean foods

Which of these mediterranean foods do you like best?

Do you like mediterranean food? I am a huge fan of this region’s cuisine! I could probably easily eat my weight in hummus alone, and I love how fresh and healthy so many mediterranean options are. It’s one of my go to cuisines on a warm summer day… Give me a few kabobs, rice / couscous, salads, veggies, dips, whatever! I don’t know if eating this way makes you healthier or not (some studies say yes!), but I hope it does. I could eat this way forever.

My absolute favorite mediterranean food is falafel, but not just any kind… European street style. Those of you who have spent time in Europe know exactly what I mean. Lucky for me, there are is an Amsterdam falafel restaurant right down the street from me here in Austin. I know I’m very spoiled ;-)

When I saw the above image of amazing mediterranean foods, I knew I had to write a quiz about it… even if there was no falafel. (Falafel quiz to come, I’m sure!) I hope it makes you as hungry as it made me: The Mediterranean Food Test Comment below and let me know what you get :-)

New Quiz: What Does Your Favorite Junk Food Say About You?

What does your favorite kind of junk food reveal about you?

Do you like junk food? I’m not even going to pretend that I don’t. I try to eat healthy food most of the time, but I definitely like to have a bit of junk food too! I think it’s all about balance and moderation. I try not to eat too much junk food (although it’s difficult when I’m stressed), and I try to find healthier alternatives to the junk food I enjoy.

There is a ton of research on junk food and personality psychology, and some of it is pretty persuasive. It does seem like the food you crave is at least partially based on mood and temperament. However, I’ve always found that this research is a bit lacking – as it doesn’t address the most popular types of junk food.

I wanted to put my own spin on junk food psychology, and I think I have with my latest quiz: What Does Your Favorite Junk Food Say About You? This quick quiz will let you know how your personality matches up with your favorite junk food indulgence. Let me know what you get, and what you think about junk food below!
