Welcome! You’re probably wondering who I am….Right? Well, this is me.

Actually this is the back of my head. If you think it would be difficult to recognize me I’ll help you out by showing you my best side….

(Cute, huh?)

My name is Megan, I’m in my mid-twenties, married to a wonderful husband, and work as a night shift nurse  in a surgical-cardiothoracic ICU in the sweatlands of Florida.

I grew up in a small town in the mountains of North Carolina and I will always consider that my “home” no matter where I presently live. I plan on moving back there one day. Growing up, I fell in love with nature as I ran wild in the woods behind my house.

 I especially love the fall.

As a child, I was not interested in food. I was a very picky eater and defiantly hated to cook. I contribute this fact as the reason why it has taken me 25 years to enjoy cooking!  I have also been blessed with a high reservoir of energy and been involved in many different sports. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I tried running cross country and loved it! I was decent enough to land a college scholarship to run at a Division I program in Nashville, Tennessee. I can tell you more about my running story, running philosophy, and struggles with injury in my running section. 

(I can’t believe I used to run so fast with that blob on top of my head!)
Belmont University is the place where I met Kevin – he ran on Belmont’s cross country and track team.


I had no trouble eating in college due to the plentiful amounts of food in the cafeteria. I ate in the caf until I the day I graduated. Tee hee – no cooking for me!

I graduated with a BSN and took my first job in Philadelphia in a surgical-trauma ICU. I had a great time in Philadelphia because I lived with one of my best friends & bridesmaid, Rachael.

But just because I was “on my own” for the first time didn’t mean that I wanted to cook. I lived on Campbell’s’ chicken noodle  soup, cereal, and apples. As for running, I trained and ran my first 1/2 marathon, the ING Half Marathon.  It’s an awesome race around the city of Philadelphia and along the Schuylkill river.

Kevin, meanwhile, decided to pursue a PhD in psychology in Florida, hence why I relocated and found a job in a surgical-cardiothoracic ICU. Since I have been married, I am finally interested in cooking, mainly due to the fact I received a bunch of beautiful cooking equipment… none of which I knew how to use.

Thus, I started to bake! This is a blog about my journey through cooking (as well as some posts on my thoughts, passions, health, etc…).

“But Megan,” you may ask, “why are you the frizzy baker?”

Look at my hair…

Need I say more?

Frizzy–or not, I love your thick tresses.
