Melissa Elsmo is an Oak Park mother, wife and chef/foodie. A member of the District 97 Wellness Committee, she speaks regularly about reclaiming the family dinner hour with nutritious meals. Her dishes have made the circuit of potlucks and PTA functions, so much so that she bets she has fed half the Oak Park population her one-bite creations.
