You might ask yourself why I chose to name my blog "You're Gonna Bake It After All."  If you didn't know, this is a play on words from "Love is all around," the theme song to the Mary Tyler Moore show.  MTM and I go way back.  Even though this show completed filming years before I was born, I watched reruns with my mom as a child and always loved watching the adventures of Mary Richards. Of course she's such a likeable character, but I think the fact that she was a career woman really resonated with me.  Years later, when I graduated college and moved to Chicago by myself for grad school, my family joked that I was like Mary (even though I had a long-term boyfriend-now husband-who would join me in Chicago just 7 months later).  My sister even got me a big "M" like Mary had on her apartment wall, and made me a card with my face superimposed onto a picture of her tossing up her hat.  I fondly refer to that brief time as my "Mary Tyler Moore Days."  Coincidentally, my married initials are now MTM, and I love it!  


  1. Meghan,
    I love the story about your blog name and I love your blog!
    Can't wait to try some these recipes!

  2. As soon as I saw the name of your blog, I had the Mary Tyler Moore song run through my head... Now, it's stuck in my head and unfortunately all that I ever remember is "you're gonna make it after all"... By the way - love your blog!

  3. I love that you ended up with your favorite initials. I'm a St Louis transplant in Florida. I came across your blog when a random Facebook stranger gave me a bourbon chicken recipe, which was on pintrest, which was from a blog, which linked back to your recipe. Phew... I look forward to trying your bourbon chicken next week. I have yet to find a homemade version I enjoy. And I look forward to poking around your site some more.

  4. Just found your blog and fell in love based on name alone. Now I can't stop singing it like this!
