Oh hi everyone.  Thanks for checking out my new blog.  I created this space to share some of the things that I think make life better. Great food, tasty drinks, discovering new places and finding ways to make life easier. My husband and I recently moved from my beloved Portland, Oregon to the Seattle area, and I spent most of my childhood in Alaska, so I am a Northwest girl through and through. I’m still struggling to believe that I am now firmly in my 30’s, and that I’m supposed to be acting like an adult (I don’t even get carded when I buy booze half the time!!).  While I try to adopt adultish skills like meal planning, healthy eating, keeping my house relatively clean and being financially responsible, I try to balance the boredom by being creative in the kitchen, mixing new drinks, and discovering new places.  I would like to use this blog as a creative outlet, and maybe share something that helps make your life a little more interesting too.

Hello! I’m Meghan.

I am so glad that you are here! I am the recipe developer, photographer, and writer here at my blog Fox and Briar. I am a passionate, self-taught home cook and believe that most things are better homemade and that good food doesn’t need to be complicated.

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog Meghan! Looking forward to seeing more of your great ideas.
    I’m not good at planning meals for one, but I’m with you on finding ways to avoid throwing food away. I started making salads in wide mouth pint jars – 6 at a time. (Wallmart carries handy white plastic lids). I wash my favorite lettuce varieties in a vinegar solution, tear it and remove the water in a salad spinner. Add chopped veggies. At this point the work is done. So easy to grab a jar and add cheese, meat, grapes, dressing etc., depending on my preference. It works for me 🙂

    1. Hi Elizabeth! Thank you, I’m so glad you like it. That is so smart to make salads ahead of time! What a great way to save yourself time in the long run and make sure you have easy, healthy food on hand.

      1. You’re welcome Meghan! I’m already feeling inspired to take a closer look at planning meals. TY
