About Me



Welcome to my little corner of the web! I’m so delighted you’ve come. I should probably introduce myself…

I’m Elle – born Elizabeth, with my parents’ intention to call me Beth (which I would have none of), known as Liz in college. As soon as I was able to name myself it became Elle. I think it fits me best – and I’m big on apt names.

Those two in the picture with me are Olive and Lila, my girlies. My hubby is Jeff and we work opposite schedules to save the expense of  daycare which means we are all too often two ships passing in the night. But Lila will be in kindergarten in three years and it’ll go fast, right? I keep telling myself it will.

By day I’m an SEA in an Early Childhood Special Ed classroom. By night I’m a passionate foodie who hankers for girl time and plays with gardening and crocheting, drinks a lot of tea and reads way too much (is that possible?). I’m also addicted to all things pumpkin. And cheese, we mustn’t forget that.

I grew up in Southern California and moved to Minnesota (kind of on a lark) with my hubby in 2004. I am a Minneapolite through and through and wouldn’t go back… except to visit. Especially in late winter. And then when I’m there I eat my bodyweight many times over in Mexican food smothered in cheese and guacamole.

This little spot of mine you’ve found is a scrapbook, a bulletin board, a recipe box, a pensieve, a place for storing my cud till I’m ready to come back and chew it again. It’s the outpouring of all my full life and I so hope that it invites you in and makes you feel at home, makes you want to stay a while. I hope it makes you want to share yourself, too.

Now, tell me all about you – I’d so love to hear your heart and your story! Please share yourself with me.

And hey! Let’s be friends. You can find me at any of these lovely places…

  2. Hi Elle
    Good to meet you!
    This is a really great blog, be encouraged.
    I’m writing a story just now about passion, talent, a bucket, a pearl and a starfish and thats all about highlighting the essential and energising experiences of being valued … This week my 20 year journey was summarised in two very short animations …


    I’ll pop back on again and perhaps we could link up on Facebook.
    Kindest regards from Scotland
    Gavin (Cargill)

  3. I’m so glad I found your blog! And how lucky am I that I get to see you every week? And even luckier that you cook for me (okay, and a hundred other people) frequently?! I can’t wait to peruse your blog more and try some of your recipes–they look delicious.
