Meet Megabite

I am a redhead who likes to spend most of my spare time in the kitchen.

Meet Megabite // take a megabite

My name is Megan DeKok and I’m a 30 year old lady icing donuts in the suburbs of Detroit with my pup Elliot. My hair’s shorter now and I totally ruined those sandals up there going kayaking, but just know that the cute pup you see is still my BFF and I still daydream about eating cookies until I’m full.

I work full time as a community manager for a couple different brands. Basically this means I say “totes” and “bestie” a lot for my job and take pictures of things and post them on social media. It’s really fun.

My interest in food started watching my mom cook and bake treats for years. When I moved out on my own I realized that I am the kind of girl who requires homemade strawberry jam for my toast and homemade hot fudge for my ice cream. So I started making things! I also love to entertain! Sometimes I throw brunch parties happen and I tell you all about them.

I’m so happy you are doing so well at Hour, miss you all from gosh my internship how many years ago?! Anyway, I really love your blog and elliot. If I was still in Michigan our pups would be pup buds.

Mega-talented you are!

Hi! I’d just like to say that your recipes are amazing and really creative! Secondly, your blog inspired me to start my own blog, chocolate shoes, which is about baking and fashion (two things I love), so thanks 🙂

Hey Megan, thanks for your easy to cook recipes. I love the asparagus polenta quiche, since I’m off wheat/ gluten for a while. Your food styling is superb too. Wish you the very best. God bless.

So glad to have found your blog! I follow/read many food and design blogs, and yours stands out. I love your style, both visually and in the kitchen. It’s not easy to make a food blog something special these days, but you have most definitely done it. Looking forward to 2015 with your recipes. 🙂

Hi Megan!

So I was reading through my Better Homes and Gardens this morning when I saw the “blog we love” feature and had to do a double-take when I realized, “Hey! I know that girl!”

I grew up going to BB Church. You’re a couple years younger than me so I don’t know if you’d remember me, but my brother Sam is your age and I’m Leo Festian’s granddaughter. I remember your family well. My husband thinks it’s so funny when I say “That’s stinkin’ thinkin’!” and it was something I first heard from your dad. 🙂

I took a bit to look around your site and I think it looks great! Congratulations on the BHG shout-out and I wish you the best of luck with your baking (and all other) endeavors!
