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.

    Greetings from Spain,


  14. The thing I love best about all these videos is you all make it seem so fun, and when I first seen the video: I'm so pregnant I knew I had to check out your other vids. Then I seen your moms go wild video and that's when I started to watch your channel more. So great work guys and cute kids by the way <3

  15. I have a diabetic friend who is struggling with keeping her supply up and wanted to make her these cookies. I used this recipe a lot when my supply would drop and they helped a ton. Do you have any suggestions on tweaking the recipe to be more diabetic friendly?

  16. I made these last night and I went into it thinking "I hope I can at least tolerate the taste" (I hate oatmeal and I am a known picky eater) the smell of the batter smells so, so good reminded me of home made butter cream icing. When the cookies got done I got my husband to take the first bite and confirm that they didn't have to bad of a taste lol. he tried them and loved it so I cautiously took a bite and they are amazing!!! They taste so good even better than nestle tol house chocolate chip cookies (my favorite cookie) thank you for sharing this video!
