Favorite food: I'm open to lots of different cuisines, though I don't eat much meat. Things I particularly like are saag paneer, pad thai, quesadillas, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pesto, pizza from Zachary's or Arizmendi, and chocolate cream pie. My favorite vegetable is broccoli. Also, my grandparents had a donut shop when I was a kid. Whenever I stayed over at their house, grandpa would bring home a box of day-old donuts each day. So, donuts will always have a special place in my heart :)
