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!

Besides cooking and baking, my pastimes include playing in my plot in the community garden and hiking.
