Hi, I’m Maegan. I’m married to my best friend and fellow foodie, Brandon. We have 4 sweet (yet wild!) kiddos. I started The BakerMama in 2012 where I share easy delicious recipes, a glimpse into everyday life, and tasty travel adventures on my quest to find the best food wherever I go.
What is your favorite meal? That’s a tough one! I have so many favorite meals depending on the time of day and what I’m craving. My ideal day would include donuts for breakfast, a big salad for lunch and a charcuterie board for dinner!
What is your favorite restaurant? My favorite restaurant in Dallas right now is without a doubt Top Knot! Their Pisco Problemo is my favorite cocktail anywhere and all of the food is amazing! Our menu favorites include the yucca chips with edamame hummus, chicken karaage, crack broccoli, hot fried chicken bun, crispy rice nabe and all the desserts.
What is your favorite kitchen gadget/tool? Like most bakers, I don’t know what I’d do without my KitchenAid Mixer. I use it at least once every day.
What do you like to do to recharge your batteries? It’s amazing what a great workout (Les Mills Bodypump is my fave!) will do for my sanity and what baking a fresh batch of cookies will do for my soul.
What is your go-to hostess gift? I love to take homemade granola bars or muffins so they have something yummy waiting for them the next morning when they wake up after a long evening of hosting.
What is your entertaining must have? A great cake! Like the wise Julia Child once said “A party without cake is just a meeting.” And we don’t host meetings here at our house! 😉
What is your favorite holiday to host? We go to my parent’s house for most of the big holidays so we were thrilled to get to host them for Thanksgiving this past year. It was so special having it at our house and being able to prepare all of our family recipes along with some new ones we created that complimented the traditional menu so perfectly. Happy bellies, happier hearts!
