By day, I’m elbow-deep in frog brains, busy being a 3rd 4th year neuroscience grad student.  By night, (if I’m not being a potato chip-addicted TV junkie) I’m usually elbow-deep in some kind of mess in the kitchen.  While I’m completely obsessed with zumba, NPR, and coupons, my real love is food, and thus by extension, cooking. 

My mom claims that as a baby, I only cried when I was hungry; I can attest that even today, good food is still the best way to resolve occasional crankiness.  Most simply, cooking—and obviously, eating—makes me happy, and I can’t wait to share my culinary adventures with you all!

My beloved camera equipment:
-Nikon D90
-Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens
-Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 lens (disappointing kit lens)
-Metz mecablitz 50 AF-1 digital flash for Nikon

From my "Simon & Garfunkel" dinner party...
this cake was the only dish without
parsley, sage, rosemary, or thyme in it!
