Meg began her career in the mid-1980s in sales for the hospitality business at The Drake Hotel in Chicago.  After her husband finished graduate school they relocated from Chicago: first to Philadelphia and eventually ending in Florida.  During this period,  Meg shifted gears and began working in event management with Reed Exhibition Companies. One of her favorite clients was the International Fancy Food Show.  As her family grew, she formed her own event planning business in 1993.   In 2003, she returned to the Chicagoland area with her husband, Steve, and their three children Phil, Doug and Lucy.
As a passionate advocate for children with learning disabilities Meg served on the Board of the Central Florida Learning Disabilities Association and was President of the Lake Forest-Lake Bluff Learning Disabilities Association.  She also co-chaired The Cove School’s annual benefit in 2010.  She is a member of the Woman’s Board at Rush University Medical Center and the University of Chicago Women’s Board.
When Meg isn’t experimenting in the kitchen with one of Jane’s delicious creations or selling one of their zen spice blends,  you’ll find her enjoying her family, on her yoga mat, watching old movies or traveling

  1. Beautiful recipes! Beef Stroganoff is a Donny favorite. Say hello to his old pal Doug for him! Congratulations on the blog; I will be following it closely.

  2. Met you at the Gorton Kids’ Christmas Boutique… Just made the Carolina Pulled Pork for dinner and I am a rock star around here! My boys, ages 4 and 2, loved it as much as we did. Thanks for making it a easy and delicious day! I need to buy more!
