What better way to introduce myself than with a lyric from the Queen of Country?
I’m Megan; I have humble roots and I adore simplicity in everything but food and drink. Midwest raised, West coast educated and Mountain living, I aspire to explore every culinary genre that I can while still paying homage to my white trash roots. I love exploring beers, cocktails, and wines, and I make it a point to utilize the absolutely amazing qualities beer, wine, and spirits can impart into food in every recipe I can.
I definitely prefer savory to sweet, but I’m known to kick out a badass batch of cookies or a batch of cupcakes with my Grandmother’s frosting now and then. I truly believe in cooking with the most basic, whole ingredients you can, but above all I believe in cooking with what you can afford. I’m a single mom; I know what it’s like to budget and to struggle to save. Ain’t no truffle oil in my recipes. Caviar can eat it, and I have no use for gold-leafed anything (did you know there is such a thing as a Douche Burger? It’s $666 and made with Kobe beef – think of all the Def Leppard albums and/or Stag you could buy with that??)
I have a really, really off color sense of humor. I curse constantly (though I haven’t yet – don’t want to scare you off too soon). I never mean to offend, so my humor should be taken lightly; I love and respect all, and you should too.
Now that the intro is out of the way, let’s eat, drink, and be really fucking merry!
