WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Dear Kitchen:

Ah...the days of endless hours in the kitchen. I cannot stop thinking about those days.

School has been terribly busy.

I find that instead of pouring over my cookbooks -- my study time -- and trying to think up new recipes I spent the majority of my free time now thinking about funding structures, state and federal policy financial aid systems, student choice, issues related to access and equity, international competitiveness and a few research projects I am working on, hoping to develop them into papers and presentations. Well...that's not to say I didn't think about these things before. But I've had to ramp it up quite a bit.

My poor, neglected kitchen.

I am feeling a bit nostalgic for it. But, as I mentioned to Nancy a couple of days ago: “I chose this life.”
And I do love the life of being a student and a lifelong learner.

Never doubt that.

The life of being mentally stimulated and challenged in my thoughts and beliefs, particularly about education, which is another passion of mind.

I do not ever dread my schoolwork. Like, literally, never. It drives me and motivates me and encourages me to be better at what I do and to be more sound in my convictions.

I just so miss cooking more often.

But, really -- it's such a small sacrifice.

And, honestly, it is not like I do not cook. I still do, so it is a blessing.

So bare with me if it seems that I am posting less. It is not because I am lazily wasting the days away without any motivation for cooking at all. It’s just that I am trying to find the balance between my passions in life.


  1. We, your followers, will be here for you when you find more time to put together your interesting concoctions. Knowledge is a wonderful thing - but so is a good omelet!

  2. I know the feeling. I'm finishing up my Ed.D. this academic year, plus I have a full-time job. As much as I love to cook, sometimes I need to write and make phone calls... you know, "work".
