A FEW QUESTIONS FOR NEALEY
- What's your favorite kitchen tool?
My 10-piece glass nesting bowl set, which gets used at least once a day ( I should probably just leave them on the counter at all times). They are perfect for prepping mise en place, mixing batters, and even holding leftovers. A girl can never have too many nesting bowls... or casserole dishes for that matter.
- What's your secret indulgence in the kitchen?
Butter, unsalted of course. I'm no Paula Deen, but butter is the foundation of almost every recipe in my kitchen, both sweet and savory. I ran out of it the other morning while trying to prepare my morning toast, in which total panic ensued. I had to take an emergency trip to the grocery store, where I stocked up on 5 pounds to keep in the freezer. In Scarlett O'Hara fashion, I will NEVER run out of butter again.
- What's your favorite quote on food, cooking, or eating?
"One of the delights of life is eating with friends; second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends." - Laurie Colwin. This quote pretty much sums up my life. If I am not eating food (which I usually am), I am thinking about it, talking about it, or dreaming about it. My poor boyfriend.
