My name is Megan Porta and welcome to my food blog! I started this website in September of 2010 with a good friend, nicknaming ourselves Pip and Ebby. Over time this blog became a huge priority for me, while her life became busy with other things. You know how life can get! I have taken over the blog, but I didn't want to lose the name that I worked so hard to establish. I decided to keep both names in the title. My main food love has always been sweets, but I have a savory side, as well. Pip is my persona when I am in sweets mode, and Ebby when I'm feeling savory.
..happily married to the man of my dreams. Dan has changed my life. He came along at a time in my life when I needed him the most. We planned a wedding in three months and found out I was pregnant six weeks into our new marriage. Now, seven years later, we have faced some unique and heart-wrenching challenges, and I am proud to say that we are stronger because of them.
My husband is: a teacher, a skydiving instructor, a hands-on and incredible father, a great dancer, an even-keeled and laid back human being and an amazing athlete. He has the best group of friends I ever knew was possible for a man to have, he is funnier than anyone I know, he is selectively obsessive about certain things, he enjoys watching sports but doesn't go overboard, he is a hard worker, he takes amazing care of his family, he has the world's best lips and he loves to travel. I am madly in love with him!
..the mother of two gorgeous and awesome boys. Elijah Daniel is a six-year-old, strong-willed, spunky, sweet, friendly, smart, crazy-haired little boy who has helped to put great faith and meaning in my life. He has spent more than his share of time in the hospital. His strong will has gotten him through three open heart surgeries, eight heart catheterizations and a handful of other surgeries. Despite the challenges he has faced, he is a friendly and happy little guy. He just started first grade and is currently adjusting to his new schedule. He also loves his crocs, yogurt, talking and reading. Talking is his favorite. :)
Samson David (Sammy) is our smiley, funny, shy, independent, snuggly three-year-old. He loves his family, Little Einsteins, his blankie, berries of any kind and doing silly dances to make his brother giggle. He is such a perfect addition to our family and we are crazy about him!
..busy! In January of 2012, I lost my full-time job as a graphic designer, which caused my family to shift our priorites and duties around a lot. Since then I have had much more time for my boys, blogging, photography, editing photos, cooking and baking. I run a photography business while being a full-time mama and also operating this food blog that I adore. Life is full, but GOOD!
..so happy to have started this blog! This blog is so important to me! I love cooking and baking and sharing delicious recipes with readers. I cannot imagine my life without this blog, and I have no idea what I did with my time before I started it. I hope you will find entertainment or helpful information somewhere within my little blog walls. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here!
