About me

Industry Education
Occupation Professor
Location Norman, Oklahoma
Introduction I am a forty-something professor who loves culinary history and the anthropology of food as well as cooking and baking. I spend two hours a day commuting and have two kids, so I don't get as much quality time in the kitchen as I would like. I'm also one of those working parents who thinks the family should get a good meal every night while simultaneously thinking myself virtuous if I get takeout for dinner only once a week. Follow me as I cook, bake, and muse about the latest cookbook or academic study I have read!
Interests Hobbies: Reading, cooking, knitting and needlework, travel, artwork, buying way too many cookbooks, swimming Academic: Women's Folklore, Anthropology of Food/Foodways, Culinary History, Medieval Women, World Religions
Favorite Movies Just about any sports movie, especially "Rudy, " which is pretty freaking bizarre since I don't actually watch or play sports. Go figure. I also like food-related films, especially "Tampopo" and "Babette's Feast."
Favorite Music I'll listen to just about anything except for Rap, mainstream Country, or Acid Rock. First love is classical music.
Favorite Books Too many to list. If I had to pick one, Lord of the Rings. Also love Terry Pratchett and Bill Bryson. Read lots of academic stuff for my job.
