Hi. My name is Meghan. My kitchen and I live in Vancouver and for as long as I can remember I have been interested in cooking. My mum was a home-economics teacher, so food was always a part of our lives. In fact, one of my earliest memories involves cooking: cauliflower and cheese sauce to be exact. I can remember staring up at the pull-out cutting board in our kitchen while my auntie chopped up cauliflower for dinner. I had been tossed into her arms minutes before as my parents rushed to the hospital to deliver my little brother. Every time we talk about his birth (on Christmas Eve), I always remember the cauliflower and cheese sauce.

My next memory of cooking wasn’t so successful. I was trying to make my Granny’s famous (a Dad perfected) Scotch pancakes and wasn’t yet familiar with the concept of fractions. To me, 5/8 cup of sugar naturally meant 5 to 8 cups of sugar. The reasonable child that I was, I picked 6 ½ cups, right in the middle. Needless to say my pancakes didn’t turn out very well, but my mum managed to console me and I kept on cooking.

Now, I can reach the cutting board and understand fractions. I began this blog as a way to keep track of all my endeavours in the kitchen and cut down on the scraps of recipes floating around the apartment. As a new year’s resolution, I decided to keep a journal of everything I whipped-up for an entire year – hence, the name of this blog, “A Year in the Kitchen.” So armed with my new Kitchenaid Mixer (a Christmas present from my Mum and Granny – thanks!) and trusty Le Creuset, here I go…
