welcome, welcome! my name is elizabeth stoltz. by day, i’m a public relations researcher surrounded by charts and surveys, data points and reports. by night, i cook; the units of measurement i deal with aren’t dotted along a chart, but are measured by tablespoons and kitchen scales. 

"planting my roots" has a couple meanings. the first is pretty straightforward. i just love root vegetables. plain and simple. sweet potatoes are my jam. the second is that after moving from pennsylvania to ithaca, ny, i headed south to washington, dc. this lovely city has inspired me beyond my wildest expectations. it's where i've planted my roots, and can feel them growing deeper by the day.
