Hi there! Welcome to Stetted. Most of what you’ll find here are recipes and chatter about food, but I also like to talk about life in general.
My name is Megan Myers. I live with my husband, sons, and two cats just outside Austin, Texas. I am a freelance food writer and efficiency specialist. When I’m not working or cooking I like to spend my time gardening, taking photos, catching up on my reading, or just hanging out with my friends and family at Austin’s great patios.
I’ve always been interested in cooking — when I was a kid I cut out those recipes printed in the Sunday coupon inserts to create my own recipe box — but as my children get older my focus has gone from not just cooking good food, but cooking good food that is nutritious and doesn’t take a lot of time. I didn’t learn how to cook from a school or even from my grandmother or mother, but through trial and error, cookbook reading, and intuition. Even though our schedules are jam-packed, almost every night I prepare a fresh home-cooked meal. I’m in the process of editing our food back to the way it should be: wholesome, delicious, and unfussy.
What does “stetted” mean? It’s the past tense of “stet,” an editing term that means “to let stand.” In my journey through food (and life) I’ve been learning a lot about what I truly need and don’t need, and I’ve found a simple life without editing my decisions is what I thrive in.
Our meals are often based on our weekly findings at the farmer’s market and whatever the backyard garden is producing. I focus on fresh ingredients and uncomplicated flavors, with spins that keep mealtime interesting. Real food is possible, even for busy moms like me.
