About me

Occupation Cookbook Author
Location Upstate, New York
Introduction My name is Elise and I am a foodfanataholic. I love all things food and food related. My idea of sightseeing on a vacation is shopping is local grocery stores. I started this blog so that Foodfanataholics can find many of their needed resources all under one roof. I hope as you navigate through my site you will find many new places to include in your culinary travels. I love to cook and have written a cookbook called Cooking with Love which can be view at It is a collection of family recipes and photos tracing my families epicurean roots through the years. I am an avid cookbook collector, all types, all foods... I teach a seminar on family cookbooks, and think everyone should take the time to compile those wonderful family recipes before it's too late. I am married to Marc, who is an OB/GYN, and we have four children. Jeffrey is a plastic surgery resident at Johns Hopkins, Steven, an attorney, David, graduating from medical school in May, and Lauren, the slot analyst for the Wynn/Encore Hotels in Las Vegas. If you are a foodfanataholic like me then this is the place to be.
