Welcome to Garlic Shoots!  My name is Elisa. This is a web log from my  kitchen in St. Louis, where I try to live out the notion that good eating should be an everyday occurrence.  It doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming. On weekdays, it absolutely cannot be, and you’ll find fast but fresh food that reflects this. On weekends, there’s more time to splurge, so you’ll find meals that require a bit more work.

For almost 15 years, I’ve worked full-time as a newspaper reporter. Almost 18 months ago I also became a  mum.  But I still make time to cook good food because few things in life are better. It helps that Jeff, my husband of five years, fully supports my cooking addiction.

By coming here you’ll find a little of everything — seasonal food, year round cooking,  healthy meals, and downright sinful ones. You’ll  see simple and fast recipes, as well as complicated and labor intensive ones. I hope  it inspires all you busy people out there to get in the kitchen and have some fun. It is possible to work, parent and cook. Enjoy!
