Megan’s digital media experience started in 2012. She started her own business to teach monthly cooking workshops in her hometown and also started freelancing for Taste of Home in 2018. She loves to celebrate seasonal Japanese-y (as she calls it) home cooking—her Instagram filled with beautiful sushi rolls and ramen bowls proves just that! Her company, Seasoned Cook, is on hiatus while she gets adjusted to motherhood, but not to worry—she’s still cooking at home and sharing her tasty recipes through freelancing.
