String Formatting with Dictionaries Code Challenge Python

Hello, I'm really struggling with this code challenge... I keep getting errors and can't seem to pass it. The error: 'Bummer! Expected favorite_food({'name': 'Michelangelo', 'food': 'PIZZA'}) to return "Hi, I'm Michelangelo and I love to eat PIZZA!"' keeps coming up, but I don't see anything about either of those (Michelangelo, PIZZA) in the directions. Other times it will replace "Michelangelo" with "Garfield", and "PIZZA" with "lasagna"... Am I missing something in the directions?

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

def favorite_food(dict):
    return "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!".format()

basically you call the dict, ['it's key'] and it will give us the key's value.

aweirdperson ={'name': 'bob', 'food': 'pancake'}

aweirdperson['name'] = bob

aweirdperson['food'] = pancake

def favorite_food(dict):
    return "Hi, I'm {name} and I love to eat {food}!".format(name=dict['name'], food=dict['food'])
