Hello, I’m Chelsea, a PhD student living in Colorado. My doctoral research focuses on legumes (pulses, in particular) and outreach. I love to cook – and eat! – and want to share some of my favorite recipes here.
I take photos so you can explore bean fields, farmers’ markets, and other great places with me. Also, as I work my way through science articles and build up to my dissertation, I’ll add snippets on the science of legumes – not clickbait, but accessible, brief summaries of what the scientific literature really has to say. Together, let’s explore the many delicious ways to enjoy legumes!
I figured I should provide at least one photo that doesn’t have beans to show I lead a “balanced” life. Besides cooking, baking, and bringing bean dip on hikes, my pastimes include playing in my plot in the community garden (see below photo for evidence) and spending time outdoors.
