Something fruity and exotic, like mango-miso. If not that, a good honey mustard. And oddly, for plain boring iceberg salad, I like plain, boring French.

What is your favorite sit down restaurant?

Crazy Burger, with Duffy's Tavern a close second.

20%, unless the service is particularly horrible. I don't tip less for bad food. Not the waitstaff's fault how something's cooked.

Yogurt-strawberry-grapenut parfait combo thing I make.

What kitchen appliance do you use the least?

The juicer someone gave me that I haven gotten around to using yet.

What is the radio station you listen to the most?

NPR. Also Cool 102 aka Best Station Ever</a>, when I can get it in the car or think of listening live. Usually I just plug my iPod into my radio, though. Most of the stuff I listen to isn't played on American local stations.

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
