Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.

  1. My friend and I (we are both 16) made this for dinner tonight for my 46 year old mom and my 15 year old brother and it was a hit! We doubled the recipe and cooked one large chicken breast cut into small pieces in a skillet on the stove and added it to the pasta to add some protein and it was really good! Thanks for the recipe Meg

  2. Made this tonight but modified the recipe. Instead of Spinach I added a cup of soaked cashews, a 1/4 of coconut cream, 2 gloves of garlic instead of one, and nutritional yeast. It was AMAZINGGGGGGG. Then followed with Vegan coconut matcha ice cream. Thanks Meg!!
