Elizabeth Ries is a television and radio personality in the Twin Cities. She spent years as a news anchor/reporter, but is now the co-host of Twin Cities Live weekdays at 3 pm on 5 Eyewitness News (KSTP). She chats about pop culture, celebrity gossip and manages to get a few pro-kale statements on the air when she co-hosts the Margery & Elizabeth show on myTalk 107.1. Elizabeth also frequently contributes articles on food and urban farming to edible Twin Cities magazine.
Elizabeth loves to cook for her
boyfriend fiancé husband Jay and their friends. She also regularly shares recipes with her sisters: Katie (a Lutheran challah bread baker and aspiring cheese monger in Chicago Minneapolis) and Jenny (the poached-egg master cooking in a tiny New York City kitchen a darling Minneapolis apartment).
With a husband, comes a hunting dog. Elizabeth and Jay adopted Gracie the German Shorthaired Pointer in March of 2014. They fondly refer to her as “The Wild Woman.”
Her mom, Susie, saw Elizabeth start as a girl who started a package of frozen spinach on fire in the microwave (I didn’t realize I had to take off the foil wrapping!) but grow into a woman who bought a house on a Tuesday and hosted a dinner party that Friday (no fires at that one!).
By her side always is her trusty Westie, Henry. No one loves to lick bowls more than him.
