About Morgan

Hi!  I'm Morgan, the photographer/cook/baker behind Confections from the Cody Kitchen.  I grew up in the small town of Clarkesville, GA (known as "Habersham" by the locals).  I attended the University of Georgia for undergrad and then went on to receive my Masters from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

I just got married in January of 2012 and have relished this new found opportunity to try out a bevy of new recipes on my husband, Trey.  He enjoys it too for the most part, except for when I'm holed away with my computer at night uploading photos and logging posts :)

I started this blog as somewhat of a hobby to assist in my quest to chronicle my adventures in cooking and baking.  I always loved being in the kitchen and helping out growing up, but I never really got into trying out new recipes until I received a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer for Christmas in 2009.  I love trying out both recipes that are a little more complicated and time consuming (just to prove to myself that I can conquer them), and also those that are quick and easy to whip up.  I'll try to feature recipes on both ends of this spectrum

If you've kept up with this blog for a while you may have also read my posts regarding my past and present relationship with food, which unfortunately has not always been so healthy.  While I certainly do not intend for this blog to center around those issues, I would encourage you to read the short series if you'd like a glimpse into why I feel the way I do about food and this blog.

Last, but certainly not least, I must introduce my trusty companion Ellie Bear.  Ellie is ever present during each of conquests in the kitchen.  From time to time I'll mention her throughout the blog.

Ellie down for the count while I'm cooking...

Thanks so much for checking out the blog guys!
