    About Me

        Back in her teenage years, Meg's first attempt at kitchen creativity involved a self-declared "brilliant" plan to saute canned pears and peanuts in teryaki sauce. This was disgusting. Her family's ridicule over the incident was bad enough that she consequently spent the next several years avoiding cooking anything more complicated than spaghetti or microwave pizza.

        It wasnt until college that the desire to impress a new boyfriend would finally prove to be just the motivation Meg needed to give cooking a second try. In the end, the boy turned out to be a total loser. Luckily, her recipes were not!


        These days the college gourmet has left college and headed on to law school where her time for cooking is unfortunately limited. She still occasionally finds the time to impress her roommate with her uncanny ability to boil water (and a few other things.)

    Favorite Foods

    My two favorite foods are crab cakes (good meaty ones, none of that mostly-cake-with-a-few-measly-morsels-of-meat garbage) and mashed potatoes (nice and creamy with plenty of butter!). I also love chocolate. And Disney Princess gummy vitamins.

    some favorite ingredients (though not necessarily all together - that would probably be gross) include:

    goat cheese


    butter, salt (of course)

    HOUSE DRESSING from Take It Away (when in Charlottesville) or The Cheese Shop (when in Williamsburg) - this stuff makes ANY sandwich amazing. Awesome for fooling people into believing you have some sort of magic sandwich-whispering powers.

    feta cheese


    Favorite foods to cook:

    Shrimp and Grits (so yum!)

    the most basic pasta ever - angel hair with olive oil cooked with plenty of garlic and parsely and topped with loads of fresh grated parmesan cheese.

    my "greek chili"

    my grandma's regular chili


    My favorite restaurants:

    Sticks in Richmond and Charlottesville, Va

    The Virginian in Charlottesville

    anywhere when I'm at home with my family (not because I love my family, eating with my parents just means is free.)
