Elaine grew up with four brothers in a Mennonite home on a dairy farm in Pennsylvania, with parents who came from the Amish church. She is grateful for her rich heritage which fostered spiritual health and taught her the life skills of homemaking and cooking for a family.
Cooking and baking is one way for her to extend warmth and caring to people, and she hopes to inspire other homemakers to not only cook for their families, but to also resurrect the seemingly-lost art of hospitality.
