5 Questions with Brooke:
Favorite Kitchen Object:
My electric kettle. As an avid tea drinker, this has absolutely changed my life.
First legit recipe you ever cooked:
A frittata with leftover produce in my fridge. It was so beautiful I brought it outside to take a picture of it to post on Instagram, which is ridiculous, but necessary.
What have you never been called/accused of:
Being too quiet.
My grandmother. Her sausage cheese puffs are so unbelievably delicious, I have requested them as birthday and Christmas gifts. Nothing else, just a plate of puffs.
What food or drink are you:
I am having so much trouble with this question because I am trying to pick a flattering food or drink! I love spicy margaritas, so I guess I’ll pick that.
