A foodfanataholic is a person who not only consumes food, but is consumed by food...all things food. They love talking about food, eating food, dreaming about food, going to restaurants, exchanging recipes, cooking, collecting cookbooks, watching food TV shows, reading food magazines, in other words, all things food and connected to food. If this describes you to a T or should I say an F for Foodfanataholic, then welcome to our blog, explore and have fun...
At Foodfanataholics™ our aim is to "whisk up a better world" through teaching the love of food, the contentment of reading the recipes and cookbooks, the beauty of sharing a meal, the simplicity of learning to do it with ease, and the joy of having fun while you prepare the ultimate feast whether it's a hot dog or a chateaubriand." With the help of my family and friends we hope to bring our love of cooking into your kitchen.
We foodfanataholics WILL whisk up a better world!!!

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 www.cookingwithlove.com
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.
