I'm a professor of physics and astronomy at a small liberal arts college.
My husband is a good cook and a real dear about helping out with the cooking, but I don't surrender the kitchen too often, because I really love cooking, even after a long day?though I really appreciate recipes that are quick and easy.
Aside from cooking, I also enjoy reading (mostly science fiction, though I try to keep my horizons broad) and board games, card games, and role-playing games.
I'm flexitarian (eat meat maybe 2-3 times a week) and I really dig crunchy-granola hippy-type food. After my husband read "The Omnivore's Dilemma," by Michael Pollan, he became interested reducing the amount of meat and processed foods he eats, and I'm delighted to comply. We both also love Asian food of any sort.
The cookbook I'm obsessed with at the moment is "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow-Cooker," by Robin Robinson. Check it out if you're looking for easy, nutritious, delicious meat-free cooking. (Most of the recipes are vegan-friendly, also.) It is a truly refreshing departure from the "1 pound meat, 1 can pale vegetables, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 package onion soup mix" school of crock-pot cookery. (Apologies to Prairie Home Companion!)
I'm also a big-time tea geek and a chocoholic. (As they would say on the Simpsons: I just can't get enough chocohol.) My two greatest pleasures are a good full-bodied Keemun and a square of 90% cocao chocolate.
But not at the same time. (Chocolate goes better with Darjeeling.)
