Hi! I’m Brooke Gladden!
I am a native Arizonian who grew up in a small ex mining town north of Tucson called San Manuel. I attended the University of Arizona graduating with a B.S. in Agriculture Communications. I currently live in Palo Verde, AZ with my husband Clint who is a fourth generation farmer at Gladden Farms/ Saddle Mountain Dairy.
I’m a total foodie at heart and normally plan my days around meals. My mom (Jacque Phelps) gave me her passion for cooking. She is a wonderful cook who I have had the privilege to learn from while growing up. My favorite thing in the world is cooking with my mom.
Now, I love cooking but I’m always still learning. Am I professionally trained? No way Jose. I am through and through a Mom taught home cook.
I hope you find some inspiration here and mostly, good recipes that you will want to try in your kitchen. Thank you for stopping by!
