A PhD epidemiology student at the “all-but-dissertation” stage, which means I spend a lot of time procrastinating from working on my thesis. I spend part of this procrastination cooking and baking. I almost find it therapeutic as it allows me to clear my mind and have a happy stomach at the end of the process. Usually I scour the internet for recipes that fit my skill level and pantry items. I hope my trial-and-errors with cooking will help other students (or non-students) cook and take a break from their studies. Enjoy!
