About Me

Hello! My name is Elsa and welcome to my blog!

I am a wife, mommy, homeschooler, and part-time worker/stay-at-home mama. My husband and I have two kids: Mimi, our high-energy 3-year-old, and Emmett, our easy-going newborn. We love being parents and hope to have more soon.

Other than my family, my passion is food. I love to cook and bake from scratch. Convenience items may appear every now and then, but not too often. I try to eat at least 80% organic food. In order to reduce the cost of food, I garden every year, so I will also share canning, freezing, and drying instructions. I’ve also recently taken an interest in food photography, so expect several step-by-step pictures with each post. I try to post at least 2 - 3 times per week. Other things that might appear on this blog: giveaways, cookbook/product reviews, pottery, kitchen tips, and everyday mama ramblings.

Elsa Cooks is my main blog, but I do I have a second blog dedicated to family life, and I try to post at least once a month. I will discuss breastfeeding, attachment parenting, co-sleeping, cloth diapering, homeschooling, crafts, product reviews, and more. Click here to see Elsa’s Baby Talk.

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
