After brainstorming blog names, creating a color scheme, and recipe-testing for our first week of posts, the blog is finally here!
We’re Grace and Maddie — the 22-year-old twins behind this food blog. As you can see in the picture above, we’ve practically been baking since we were born. Our kitchen has been home to innumerable birthday cakes, Thanksgiving meals, elaborate brunches, and even a rather unfortunate attempt at our own cooking show in middle school. Today, we love hosting dinner parties for our friends, cooking up creative vegetarian entrees, and spending time with our family gathered around the kitchen counter.
In May 2014, we graduated college and journeyed into the real world — landing Maddie in Cincinnati, OH, and Grace in Birmingham, AL. Despite the distance, we’re continuing to learn and be inspired by what the other is creating in the kitchen. As we began sharing our most successful dishes with one another, we realized we’d love to share them with you all as well —thus, double thyme was born.
Here, you’ll find a combination of savory vegetarian dishes, our favorite baked goods, and a few drinks and snacks in between. We’re from-scratch cooks and bakers, and except for the occasional Bisquick waffles, most of what we make doesn’t start with a box. We’re passionate about working with fresh and local ingredients, and our dishes are reflective of the season’s best produce.
We’re so looking forward to starting this new adventure and including you all in it every step of the way! We will be posting recipes that are delicious, easy to follow, and fully approved by both of us and our friends and family. So come on in, pull up a chair, and welcome to our kitchen(s)!
