A short Q/A with Ron:
What is your favorite way to spend a typical Saturday morning?
Enjoying a really good cup of coffee on the back porch with my wife (summer time only :) ).
How about in the winter?
The pursuit of the perfect homemade pizza dough!
What is your favorite type of pizza dough (New York Style, Cracker Crust, Chicago Deep Dish, Sicilian, etc.)?
Yes. But I lean toward New York Style…
So, you like to cook?
Well, yesish but baking is what I typically do though I dabble on occasion with real cooking. I defer to my wife most days who has mad cooking skills! I am trying to hone my mad dish washing skills but it’s a work in progress :).
When you are not baking, cooking, or sometimes doing the dishes, if you had one other thing you would choose to do with your free time, what would it be?
I will give you a top three: Watching movies with my wife, playing with my dog, and playing/writing music.
