Published on May 15, 2017

Marissa and I had a little too much fun creating a “mess” in the kitchen. Ha! This traditional British dessert is not only delicious, but since it’s meant to be imperfect, it’s great to make with your kids! Subscribe to WUM for new vids M-W-F!

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. That looks delicious😍 perfect for summer dessert🌞🌞
    could you guys do a video on planning summer for kids and ideas to keep your kids busy in the summer 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞

  2. this is so extra im from london and if we ever do make eton mess (which is rare) you just get shop bought meringue and some whip cream in a can and shove a bunch of berries on top 😂

  3. I love this channel so much but from living in England my whole life and being British, I have never heard of anyone having "tea time" or plating out fancy foods… stereotypes are sooo wrong, British people are chavy and far from high class 😂 xo
