How It All Started..
From the moment that I could see over the edge of the stove, I was interested in cooking and baking. I have always loved to eat, but around age 5, I became interesting in creating. I would pull out my mom's red and white checkered copy of the Betty Crocker Cookbook and would choose my next recipe. As I grew older, my passion for delicious food grew as I worked in fine dining establishments and completed an intense study in French baking during college.
In the fall of 2019, I was a young mom looking for a creative outlet. I loved sharing my deep love for all things created with butter and sugar so I started Maple and Thyme, my little spot in the universe to share my passion for recipe creation, food styling and food photography. From there, we launched a small batch granola company, Maple and Thyme Granola and I've never looked back.
I am passionate about both teaching and learning. When I am not teaching my two boys how to flip pancakes or make macaroni and cheese, you will find me teaching second grade or taking a class to learn more about cooking, baking or food photography.
