First Post

After months of following blogs online, I decided it was time to give in and create my own! At first I wanted the blog to be about cooking only because those are types of blogs I find most enjoyable. However, I realized my life typically revolves around 2 things: school and food. Hence, the name Textbooks and Cookbooks.

Right now I'm starting my second, and final year, in a psychology master's program and am in the process of applying to PhD programs. One of the things that keeps me sane throughout the semester is cooking! I mean, you've got to have some sort of outlet after you finish reading 100 pages of neuroscience, right? School is something I have always been good at; however, when I was younger cooking was not my strength! There were a few years (circa 6th grade) when I couldn't even get chocolate milk to mix together! Throughout my entire undergraduate career I had a full meal plan so I never got to experience regular cooking until I began graduate school. For the past year, I've learned a lot about cooking and have grown to love it!

So here's to hoping lots of new recipes will come out of this blog! Now off to read...
