Time for another round of Four Foods on Friday! I'm loving this. I'm always either commuting to London to spend the weekend with my boyfriend on Fridays, or welcoming him here with a nice hot meal. I appreciate taking it easy like this. And it's fun, to boot. Here we go:
#1. Artichokes. Love em or leave em?
In pasta or in artichoke and spinach dip (or any kind of dip), I'm a huge fan. On pizza or by themselves? Ick.
#2. What’s your favorite kind of bean?
I've only recent grown to like beans at all. As it turns out, I really like black beans. I discovered that on a trip to Cuba over Christmas last year. They served black beans and rice together, and I loved it! They're great in South American-inspired soups, too, like tortilla soup. Yum.
#3. Share a recipe for any kind of cake.
This is going to sound a little nutty, but I'm not much of a cake person. I certainly don't have any original cake recipes. But I have been itching to try making a coconut cake anyway, and Barefoot Contessa's version looks delicious and elegant.

#4. What’s your favorite dairy product?
Cheese. Cheese. Cheese!! What else? My Italy posts are still to come, but I will say that my boyfriend brought me a huge round of pecorino cheese from Italy. I can't wait to have some.
