About

Me frosting a mini cupcake, with my dad looking over, curiously

My name is Sam and I am a 20-something undergrad graduate student who really loves to cook and bake during the breaks. I graduated from Cedar Crest College with a BS in Biology and minors in Nutrition and Global Diseases. Currently I am tackling a doctorate program in Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University, with a focus on molecular/international nutrition, specifically epidemiology, immunology, and infectious disease. I love making dishes that are delicious yet nutritional with lots of whole grains, fruit, veggies, and not too many animal products. I am not vegetarian, much less vegan, but I try to be if there is the option. Cooking is a creative outlet for me.  At school when I’m swamped almost 24/7, this part of me gets put on the back burner (pun so intended); as a result, you’ll see a flurry of posts during the summer and winter breaks and next to nothing in between. I also love trying new foods and cuisines, so some posts may focus on a dish prepared by a restaurant. Thank you for stopping by!

    Sam, I am glad you and your family enjoyed PJ’s. Let me know if you ever need anything when you come in. Our business is very personal to us and it has been that way for 128 years.
    Regards,
    Paul

      Thank you for your comment!! I will be living around the corner from PJ Clarke’s 1884 this summer so I will most probably be coming again soon.

  2. […] Sam is an awesome foodie who makes lots of healthy dishes – one particular dish that I love is her tofu steak: I love tofu, but I’ve never thought of making it into a steak! Oh, and her mini blueberry cream cheese pies: sheesh I’m already drooling just typing the name! I wish I can be like her and cut down on my intake of meat in my daily meals, but I can’t because I love meat *er-hem* quite a lot… Anyway! Thank you so much for the nomination, Sam! […]

  3. […] What will I cook today? […]
