As a wife, a former homeschooling mom of eighteen years, and an author and president of Cooking with Elise, this mom knows the power of an hour in the kitchen and around the table from personal experience.

You would never know that this out-spoken, passionate and funny chef once suffered from a horrific speech impediment which left her unable to say even her own name with ease until she was sixteen years old. The time Elise spent with her grandmother in the kitchen and around her family’s table was a substitute for language itself.

From personal experience, Elise knows that cooking and eating together is one of the quickest and strongest ways that families can build and strengthen their relationships. Elise brings families back to the table! She makes cooking and eating together attractive, affordable, easy and fun.
