About Me

Hello! Welcome to A Girl & A Dog! I’m Megan, the girl, and Z is the dog.

Z and I have been together for nearly six years now and I do consider him my child (as does everyone around me). Yes, I’m one of those crazy people and I am perfectly okay with that. I work full time attempting to put my BA in Equine Studies to good use. On the weekends, Z and I enjoy spending time at the dog park, baking goodies for my co-workers, and occasionally binge watching a new TV show. Oh, and chasing squirrels, can’t forget that.

I started baking (and eating entire jars of sprinkles) when I was a little girl, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I really fell in love with cakes, cupcakes, and decorating. I’m often told I should open my own bakery, which isn’t completely out of the realm of possibilities, but I did get a degree in Equine Studies for a reason. Enter the blog!

I created A Girl & A Dog to share my recipes with you, both human and canine. Most will be designed to satisfy your sugar craving or reward the lovable pooch in your life, but you can expect the occasional dinner idea. There will be cake decorating ideas, tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years, and reviews for some of the products I use.

While I may have the biggest sweet tooth ever (just ask my dentist), I also believe in a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly. You might see a few of my favorite workouts sprinkled in. I’m also an Independent Distributor for ItWorks! which helps balance my love for all things sugary with my desire to remain healthy.

So grab a cupcake and take a look around. We hope you enjoy what you find and would love to hear from you!
