Hi! I’m Meghan and I am so glad that you are here. Writing an about me page is difficult, it is like writing your own review at work. But I am the kind of person who loves to read other people’s “about me” sections, so I thought you might be too. I’m a thirty-something lady (does that make me sound old?) living in the Seattle area, but my heart belongs in Portland, Oregon. I live with my husband, who I am madly in love with, and our two cats, who I also love quite a bit. I am a passionate self-taught home cook. I like recipes that are simple and flavorful, and usually fairly quick. My cooking has evolved over the years, and I make many things from scratch with simple ingredients rather than buying pre-packed foods. I’m not the kind of person who insists everything be made from scratch though, I am all for cutting a step here or there if it relieves stress. I just have found that homemade food tends to taste better, be better for me and is actually much easier to make than I used to think. Although I try to create mostly healthy recipes, I also believe in balance, and so there is plenty of cheese, some cocktails and a few sweets in the mix.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest, and I try to get out and explore as often as possible. On a weekend you might find me taking a hike (nothing too crazy!) or a day trip to a nearby town, or just curled up on the couch with my husband watching some Poirot, eating some popcorn and drinking some tea and/or wine.
