Welcome to my kitchen!

Megan Herreid Pires

I’m not a professional cook!

I’m just an ordinary girl who has a knack in the kitchen and a passion for all things food!.

I grew up in the kitchen with free range to make pretty much what ever  I wanted. Growing up, when friends came over with the munchies, we didn’t open a package of cookies, (OK, maybe sometimes) we baked a few dozen. My mom always said, “If your going to heat the oven, you might as well double the batch.”  Those words have stuck in my head, all my life, and I have a hard time making half a batch of anything. It’s double or nothing. That’s what happened to my waist line!

Welcome to my culinary adventure!

Hey Megan, do you have the recipe posted somewhere for that dessert Kellie gave me a couple weeks ago. It was really good. It had a cookie bottom, some cream and then some orange slices on top.

Oh fun city, Megan! This is a beautiful blog. I love the photo tags on the side. I keep telling myself I’ll have more time to figure out all these nifty tricks when school is out for the summer.

megan, i took the big leap, made that pumpkin cheesecake. How beautiful!! I took your advice and went one more step. I made my own homemade cranberry sauce, YUM! easy to do, then I drizzled the beautiful red cranberry sauce over the plated cheesecake, a small dollop of whipcream, I have to say I even wowed myself and those who also enjoyed. Thank you megan for always inspiring me to step into your fab world of cooking!!

Hi Megan,

My great friend and neighbor growing up had the same kind of home. After school we’d always end up at her house “cooking” and “eating” dinner as our snack BEFORE actual dinner. I have such fond memories of bacon and eggs!! We went all out. I was hooked…my parents were vegetarians so we rarely had those kinds of meals. YUM!

I stopped by from Waltz on by Wednesday. Nice to meet you!

dearest Megan,
you bring joy to my heart and to my taste buds !!! a good friend is one thing, a good friend who can really cook it up. Does’nt get better than that. Meg, I would always call my momma for that great cooking advise, she has gotten older. She does’nt remember much of her wonderful cooking, recipes, or those hard learned tricks. Guess what? Ive got you!!! I share this today cuz when I get home I’m cooking up that wonderful coco cabana bars recipe. Thank you dear wonderful friend, probably gonna call you for something!! YOU BE THE BOMB !! Martha has nothing on you !!! Kimmy girl
