Renee Horton has spent a lot more time than usual in her kitchen this year.
Horton, a NASA engineer from New Orleans, has been working from home almost exclusively since March. With her desk just steps away from her home’s kitchen, she often tries out new vegan recipes and also makes her classic comfort food staples in between video meetings.
For Horton, cooking during the coronavirus pandemic has meant consistency at a time when everything has changed.
“I think I ate chicken and waffles at the beginning because that was, like, my true comfort food,” Horton tells NPR.
