For almost a year my sister has been saying, “you need to start a blog.” I’m not sure if she thinks I need a hobby, or if she actually thinks I have interesting ideas. Either way, I finally got the nerve to set one up.
Here’s a little bit about me that might give you an idea of what to expect from my posts (although to be completely honest, I’m not even sure at this point what to expect!): I have a Ph.D. in early and nineteenth-century American literature and teach English at a small, public university in North Carolina. I love to eat. A lot. I especially love to eat when I’m traveling. Along with eating, I enjoy cooking and baking, and I hope blogging will inspire me to attempt new recipes. To counterbalance the eating, I make myself run. I enjoy clothes and accessories – I like to think of getting dressed as a fun art project – and I love the lady who runs our family, Biscotti the Scottish Terrier, who will definitely be making guest appearances.
That’s me in a nutshell. Welcome to Biscotti and a Ph.D.!
