This blog combines two of my favorite hobbies: reading and baking. As a student in a library science program and the owner of a brand-new KitchenAid Stand Mixer, I’ve been consuming an ever increasing volume of books and baked goods lately. Follow along in my literary and culinary phantomtollhousecookieadventures!

My tentative career plan is to become a youth
services librarian in a public library, so I’ve been reading a lot of children’s and young adult literature, both for school assignments and for my own reading pleasure. As I’ve grown older, I haven’t grown out of enjoying books like Go Dog, Go!, Charlotte’s Web, Where the Sidewalk Ends, The Mitten, and of course, The Phantom Tollbooth. I also still love baking my favorite childhood goodies, like Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies, but I’ve begun to experiment with new recipes, attempting to bake muffins, bread, quiche, pie, and more!
