Welcome!  Decades of nudging family, friends and clients toward adding Thyme & Style to their cooking, design and everyday life lead me to the insights you find here. These simple hints add spice to the homes and kitchens of those closest to me and lead me to share recipes, style techniques and discoveries with a new audience, you.

Recipes here at Thyme & Style® are not fussy and you won’t find yourself glazed and confused skimming over the ingredients list. I write what I know (how to cook) and this means great day-to-day recipes tried out countless times in my home kitchen using fresh, findable ingredients.

Thank you for joining me. Creative inspiration is everywhere and you’re sure to find a few surprises along the way. Ideas percolate as I expose myself to the world, whether it be on a Saturday stroll through the Detroit farmers’ market surveying the seasonal bounty from across Michigan, or on the search for the perfect copper saucepan at Dehillerin in Paris, on a sunny afternoon. Food may be fashion, but it is also about time, time spent with family on vacation around a plain oak table laden with marketplace finds. My hope is that the vibrations of culinary and style creativity will pique your interest to join me (virtually) in my kitchen and style studio.

I love to artfully prepare dishes that include color, texture, and layers of flavor; naturally this draws me to the vibrant hues of fresh fruits and vegetables.  My canvas is a dinner plate. Perhaps it’s yours as well, or will be…I look forward to getting to know you and hope you will share your own Thyme & Style in the comments section.

Good thymes,
