Favorite kitchen appliance? It's a tie between my citrus juicer and a stand mixer. Plus, juicer + mixer = lemon squares! The barrier to entry for fresh baked goods is dangerously low when you're not mixing everything by hand.
Favorite mode of transportation? My bike! No traffic or waiting for the train. (Yes, always showing up just a little bit sweaty).
First job? Working at an ice cream place! It taught me the very niche skill of making a perfect soft-serve cone and started my ice cream habit.
Have you ever had a nickname? What is it? Chuck. My older sister wholeheartedly adopted it and managed to spread the word to all my future teachers before I got to high school.
Favorite family tradition? The Birthday Fairy! The night before your birthday, the Birthday Fairy sneaks in while you're sleeping to decorate so you wake up to streamers & balloons. My parents have done it since I was a kid and it's now a tradition in my apartment.
