A journal of social practice & professional engagement for the Antioch community

Hi everyone! As you probably know my name is Shelby, and I am a 4th year at Antioch College. My last two co-ops have been spent working in kitchens/dealing with food, and it is a HUGE passion of mine. If you’re like me, and don’t have a fat stack of money lying around, then you can understand how difficult it can be to create meals for yourself, and even harder to make them healthy. Have no fear…the broke chef is here. On this page you can find recipes, tips on how to save money at the grocery store, how to cook things properly, how to substitute ingredients, how to anticipate food over co-op, and so much more! If you have any ideas, or you want to see anything specific please let me know, I would like this page to be as helpful as possible. Enjoy.

P.s. Excuse my crazy eyes…working in kitchens with sleep deprivation equals weird facial expressions!

Hi, my name is Shelby Glee Pratt. I was born and raised in a small town in northern Indiana, and moved to Ohio for my undergraduate degree. I am currently still in the process of obtaining my bachelors in Psychology. Beyond that, I am trying to combine the Culinary world with Psychology. One of my biggest passions in life is cooking. More than being passionate, I am motivated to bring sustainability and ethics to the culinary industry. In my downtime I enjoy reading cook books and magazines, watching documentaries, and traveling, among other things.
