Hi there. My name is Elizabeth Brookbank. I am a book lover who also loves to cook, and bake, and eat delicious things that I haven’t cooked or baked, and sit outside in the sun eating something delicious while reading a book. That was too long for a blog URL, and thus: BookLoverCook.
I grew up in Alaska and moved East when I was 18. After 11 years on the East Coast I have migrated back West. I moved to Seattle in 2011 to go to graduate school and two years later, Master’s degree in hand, I moved to the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon to take a job as a librarian at a local university. My boyfriend, dog, and two cats have come along for the ride – figuratively and literally (our move to Seattle consisted of hurtling across the country in a minivan over the span of five days).
This blog is where I write about the mostly vegetarian meals I cook for myself and my boyfriend in our small kitchen, the goodies I bake and attempt not to eat in their entirety, and the books that I read, many of which also happen to be about food. Thank you for visiting my site, I hope you will come back soon.
If you’d like to chat or have a question for me, feel free to email at: booklovercook [at] gmail [dot] com
