In which I introduce myself…

I’m Meghan.

I love food and I love talking about it. Now I have a blog.

I feel unmoored if I don’t have garlic in the pantry, wine in the rack, cheese in the fridge and chocolate in the freezer.

Cooking for others makes me feel happy and complete. Writing about it keeps me off the streets.

I wish my life was a musical, so I could break into song at any and all times and not have the world look at me funny.

I wish my apartment had a backyard so I could grow tomatoes.

I really really love vodka gimlets made with fresh lime juice and simple syrup.

I don’t drink coffee. Blech.

I can eat an entire bag of Hint of Lime Tostitos without exerting much effort. This should be embarrassing enough that I can show some restraint. It isn’t and I can’t.

I like mustard on my grilled cheese. On white bread with Land O Lakes white american.

I buy chocolate chips in bulk at Costco.

If you know where to look you can always find candy in my house.

I own a sewing machine and my own set of tools.

If it didn’t have Pivenish consequences, I think I could give up all other foods and eat only sushi forever and ever amen.

I wish Tracy Morgan could walk around with me all day and just say funny stuff.

I don’t always wash my dishes as immediately as I should. And glasses can stay dirty next to the sink for ages.

I would like to wall paper my life in Japanese woodblock prints.

If I didn’t have a couch or a television I am pretty sure I would rule the world.

Welcome to the journey. I don’t know what to expect, but I hope it will be a good time.

  1. Meghan,

    I just read your blog courtesy of your link on Facebook. It’s really great! I remember you loving to cook so much back on Gerald Street (and making such tasty food)! I totally share your passion for it – nothing is better than going to a farmers’ market and picking an array of fresh foods, going home, and experimenting with them! Your food looks absolutely delicious and beautiful. (Oh, and if you don’t mind, I’m totally stealing your roasted beet/goat cheese/orange idea – I’ve NEVER – yes, that’s right – NEVER – prepared/cooked/roasted beets before and your recipe will be my first experiment with them).

    Kudos on a great blog!

    Hope you’re well.


    • Thanks Sarah! I have been following your exciting stuff on facebook too. Congrats! I am sure the wedding is going to be fantastic! Blogging makes me feel like a big nerd, but it’s fun. Good luck with the beets…couldn’t be easier, and roasted beets are so good. If you have leftovers throw them on a salad. Let me know how it goes!

  2. First of all Sarah–it was Gerald Road!

    Meg- this is so good, before you know it Amy Adams will be playing you…then you’ll know you hit the big time. Take me with you on your road to stardom. When you open your restaurant, remember, I’m an excellent hostess.

    • Hi, Meg: Remember me? Marissa’s mom. I love your blog. The pictures that accompany the recipes are beautiful. My mouth was watering as I was reading. I’m sure it will be a success!

  3. Meg, you are one talented chiquita. You have a way with food, words, and photography. I love your wit. Way to go you! 🙂 Just thought I’d say that since I thought that. Love the blog!

    P.S. – Hey, do you remember FileT Mig-NON???? (pronouncing it phonetically of course….) Every stinking time I see it on a menu, I remember our trip to the Hideaway in Old Lyme where we laughed about that forever for some reason. It makes me smile. 🙂 Fitting to me that you would love food so much since such a fond memory about you involves food…..

  4. Obviously I LOVE THE BLOG!!! Sorry I have been super lazy on the computer and have not responded earlier! Your Florida family MISSES and LOVES YOU very much! Thanks for the little note, just got it this past week! Keep up the great work on the blog! I need to now put your blog in my FAVORITES!

  5. I’ve missed the blog (not to mention your cooking!) since you traded in your bikini in Florida for the culture of Boston! Loved the post about my rooster, Uncle Skip’s bolonasge request, and the onion tart with the amazing bottle of sauvignon blanc we had. Speaking of which, when are you getting back down here?? Your family and friends miss you (especially Morgan!)!
