Hello, I'm Meg Cosgrove

This is my gluten free home bakery!

About Freshly Baked By Meg

My love of food has been life long. Tastes and smells evoke memories of holidays, family, and laughter. I began baking in 2006 and discovered a natural talent that gave me a sense of calm. More than a hobby, I found great joy in watching people enjoy my creations. In 2012, I began following a gluten free diet due to health concerns. My love of baking found a new avenue in creating bakes that were not just “good for gluten free”, but simply GREAT. I am a home baker determined to abolish the stigma associated with gluten free goodies and make inclusive baking the new normal.

About Me

In 2020 my husband Patrick and I recognized the very real need for a dedicated gluten free space for me to bake in. After searching high and low for a commercial kitchen where I could make this dream a reality, I took a page from another North Carolina home baker and decided to build a kitchen off our deck that would serve as the new home for Freshly Baked by Meg. In 2021 my dream became a reality: my 100% gluten free kitchen is now the where I spend 40 hours a week creating and making dietary restrictions child’s play.

When I am not baking, I am chasing my 3 young children and catching some shut eye whenever, and where ever I can! Our family of 5 is completed with 2 purring kitties in our small Raleigh home. I love spending time outdoors and clearing my mind with power yoga whenever possible.
