margeaux: I feel like I’m on a psychiatrist’s bench...okay, here goes: I’m an 18-year-old entrepreneur who just graduated from high-school. I live in Iowa with my parents and four siblings and currently work at an organic salad café as a prep and bakery assistant. A few likes: Christian rap, full-fat ice-cream, and poetry.
For most of high-school I’ve operated muxoriginals.etsy.com, a handmade 18” doll clothes web business. However, I’ll be closing Mux Originals July 1st (all merchandise is 40% off until then!) so that I can focus on my primary interest – the culinary arts. I’m considering culinary school but what I want most is to start my own food-related business.
mhc: What made you decide to become involved with MHC?
margeaux: I'm co-editor of the Taste section. I write and photograph recipes for both the magazine and blog. I hope that I inspire MHC readers to get in their kitchens and try something new! Writing recipes provides me with an opportunity to quantify my own kitchen experiences and share them with others. I really enjoy that creative motivation. Sadly, I will be retiring from my position with MHC at the end of June to focus on work and (possibly) school.
