About Me

I like peaches.
I like cake.
I like summers at the lake!
-Megan, age 5 Meg Opel

Welcome to Peaches & Cake!

I’m Meg and this is where I share my crowd-pleasing recipes, entertaining tips, interior design inspiration, and stories about my baby. This blog started as a strictly food blog in its inception but has since evolved into a place where I share anything and everything that inspires me!

I’m 27 and live in River Forest, Illinois with my super-darling husband who is a dermatology resident (for this reason I choose to not mention his name directly on the blog), our babe Oliver, and our golden retriever Nell. We both graduated from Cornell in upstate New York. You can find pictures from our July 2011 wedding here.

I love dreaming up recipes made with whole unprocessed food, entertaining and hosting dinner parties, decorating and making improvements on our 100-year-old house, hiking, antiquing, crafting, playing with my pup, and spending time with my six siblings at my family’s lake home in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin (the lake mentioned in the poem above). Oh, and I’ve never met a scoop of ice cream I didn’t like. :)

Please feel free to contact me with comments and questions. You can like Peaches & Cake on Facebook, follow along on Twitter and Instagram, and check out what’s inspiring me on Pinterest. Hope you stay and linger a while!
