Hi Everybody! I’m Elizabeth.
I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. You know all those John Hughes movies like The Breakfast Club and Home Alone. Yeah, around there. Although randomly, when I was 12, my family moved to Singapore for a year and a half and my parents, two little sisters and I trekked all around Asia.
That time in Asia really sparked my interest in world travel. My senior year of high school I went to rural Honduras for the summer and lived without electricity or water for six weeks digging trenches for water storage. Then I went to Middlebury College, a beautiful liberal arts school in Vermont and studied molecular biology. I was also a music minor and composed a twenty minute string quartet and played piano. Between two trips of six months, I lived in Chile and made friends with a whole bunch of awesome musicians.
Then I moved to Cleveland to start medical school at Case Western Reserve University. Medical school was a lot different than anything else I’d been doing. Time was more restricted, and things were a lot more focused than they had been in college. I wanted to do something creative so I started cooking quite a bit. I always loved food and cooking, but I became obsessive and also learned one of my greatest talents—throwing a dinner party!
I met my lovely
Oh and about the blog. Yes, I write all of the recipes unless credited to somewhere else. I always was one to throw things in a pot and serve dinner, but my lovely friend encouraged me to write down what I was making. Which has proved beneficial, since now I can actually make things again.
Concerning medical care, I would never write about a patient or complain about a co-worker on this blog. I have utmost respect for the people that I work with and respect for patient confidentiality.
