My 11 Questions for the Nominees

So I have to tell you, coming up with questions was hard. So many of the ones that popped into my head were food related: What pizza toppings do you like? Do you prefer cake, cookies, or pie? What do you put on your hamburger? What was your favorite candy to get from trick-or-treating?  It was tough to make them non food related.
