Welcome to Culinary Hill!

Culinary Hill is my collection of recipes, gadget information, ingredient descriptions, cooking advice, and observations on life.  Welcome aboard.

Please feel free to peruse the content and offer your own tips and suggestions as you go along.  My cooking style has changed a lot since I moved to Southern California and had a baby with a dairy allergy (he’s almost done growing out of it).  I skip around to different diets and create recipes that may or may not follow them.  I love to read about food, think about food, create food, and eat food.

These days I’m cooking with a lot of vegetables, lean meats and chicken, and avocados.  I cook almost everything with olive oil, rarely butter.  My favorite seasonings are salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Since I don’t eat a lot of processed food, I’m fine with salting my own the way I like it.  I look at other recipes for inspiration, but most of the food I cook I dreamed up on my own.

By the way, my name is Meggan and I will be your hostess.  I love writing, bad puns, writing bad puns, and in case you hadn’t guessed it yet, FOOD!

  1. By far my favorite recipe website. Thank you, Meggan. I have gone through 40 pages of your recipes and printed almost ALL of them, haha. You made your site so easy to navigate and I love the option to print with picture, thanks!

  2. Love your Midwestern roots! I’m a fellow Midwesterner (Iowa) living in Southern California.
    Love all things surrounding food…entertaining, baking, cooking, grilling, eating. Your recipes look great and somewhat familiar, which I love. I’m happy I found you.

    1. Thank you Lori! I live in Santa Clarita. It’s so very different from Milwaukee. I didn’t like it for a long time… 5 years… but now I can’t imagine moving back home. I just love it here. :) And I love visiting Wisconsin, so that’s the best of both worlds! So glad you found me too. -Meggan

  3. I have to say I go through a many food websites and besides Food Network this is one of my favorites. I have saved pretty much more than half of the recipes listed on this website. Keep them coming. And if you have a book let me know I’ll buy one lol :-).
