About Me

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.

My name is Susan Carter, and I have been baking as long as I can remember.  Meanwhile, I did not know anything about economics until I went to college and enrolled in an Intro Economics course.  I immediately became enamored with the principles underlying all of the economics concepts we learned.  After discovering that I enjoyed teaching economics when I tutored my junior and senior year of college, I decided to go get my PhD.  I graduated from Vanderbilt in 2012 and have been teaching at a liberal arts college since then.  I often use food related examples in class and finally started writing them down. I eventually would like to write a cookbook!

In addition to baking and economics, I love to run, play sports, listen to country music, and read a good mystery novel.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at bakeonomics350(at)gmail(dot)com
