Favorites:

Foods: I don’t have it as often as I would like, but my favorite meal is Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo. Also, cheese is something I’ll never give up. Pizza and wings will always make me happy. My Grandma and Grandpa’s pasta sauce – I sadly will never have it again, but I will never forget it.

Hot Sauce: Death By Chili Sauce, and this was the honest truth before I bought the brand! The Original is absolute perfection. Without bias, I love me some PepperNutz Roasted Red Pepper, Karma Sauce Smokey Karma, Doc’s Fusion Fuel, and High Desert Tikk-Hot Masala.

BBQ Sauce: It’s not a commercial sauce, but a friend of mine’s uncle makes the best! I hope to bring it to market.
