Birthday cake, croissants, and lemon meringue pie may not be the first objects that come to mind when one ponders micro- and macro-economics, but Bakeonomics350, a creative blog bringing economic principles to the kitchen, makes these fields tasty and tangible. The blog was started by Susan, an avid baker and professor of Economics, who combined both skills to show "the sweeter side of economics." Each post outlines a key econ concept, and then shares a recipe that ties it together. For example, readers can learn about how holiday treats influence demand chains and increase prices and then try their hand at baking Chocolate Covered Cherry Delights (a perfect treat to return to on Valentine's Day). The various tabs at the top of the site divide posts into categories based on economics principles, including Demand & Supply, Firm Decisions and Competition, and Trade. Additionally, the search bar at the top of the site is a handy browsing tool. Whether readers are guided by their thirst for knowledge or their taste buds, options abound.
