Q: What was the last thing you did for fun on downtown Main Street?
A: Went to church. Our church, Epoch Church, is located at 924 Main Street.  I have never experienced a more committed community of believers who show the love of Christ to others.  I am so proud to be associated with this group of people. 

Q: Do you have a favorite spot on Main Street?
A: I love what Matt and Amy have done at South on Main.  You can enjoy delicious food, amazing cocktails, and listen to incredibly talented musicians- all from the same seat!

Q: What role do you have in the Main Street Food Truck Festival?
A: As the Volunteer Coordinator, I have been tasked with recruiting 600 people to hang out with me on October 7, 2017.  So, go sign up at right this minute!

Q: How many years have you attended the festival?
A: I have attended for several years, but this is my second year serving on the committee.

Q: What is your favorite thing about the festival?
A: It is such a fun event.  I love that so many people are drawn to Main Street and can experience what downtown Little Rock has to offer. It really brings a diverse population together to experience a food trucks, entertainment and so many local artisans. 

Q: If you had a food truck, what kind of food do you think you would sell?
A: Desserts and cocktails.

Q: Do you like to cook for yourself?
A: I like to make breakfast on Saturdays and I’ll cook something fancy for Thanksgiving every year.

Q: What is the best dish you cook?
A: Eggs over-medium and thick cut bacon.

Q: What’s your favorite dish to cook for friends? For just you?
A: I really excel at take-out orders and being a bartender.  I love to entertain.  So, slinging drinks and opening to-go containers really highlight my true talents. 

Q: On a scale of 1 – 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best, how do you rate your own cooking?
A: Solid 4.5.

Q: The last time you went out to eat, did you go with a tried and true dish from the menu or something different and exciting?
A: I’m a very adventurous eater.  So, I typically try something new with every visit.

Q: What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
A: I once ate Zebra in Namibia, Africa. It was delish!

Q: What is your favorite food in the whooooole world?
A: I’ve never met a French Fry that I didn’t like. Or a Dorito.

Q: If you could have anything in the world made by anyone in the world for your last meal, what would that meal include and who would prepare each thing?
A: That is SUCH a good question.  I would want my mom to make my grandma’s chicken and dumplings and deviled eggs, my mother in law to make a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing, and Gilbert Alaquinez (Café 42/ The Clinton Center) make French fries with béarnaise sauce. 

Q: If you could steal the credit for being the creator of any dish ever created in the history of ever, what would it be?
A: Pizza. Judging by the amount of Papa John’s I have consumed, I should be getting paid for it.

Q: If you could redesign the food pyramid (without any dire health consequences) how would it look?
A: Dark chocolate and bourbon would each have much higher recommendations. 

Q: We finish this interview and you step outside and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
A: Make a substantial donation to Epoch Church and some of the other non-profits that my husband and I support.  Then I would book a really, really great trip- so many places to go!
