What is Savor the Thyme all about?

Hello and thank you for your interest in Savor the Thyme. I am a stay-at-home mom with two children, ages 3 and 5. I obtained a Master’s of Science in Immunology and worked for a large pharmaceutical company prior to starting my family.

This blog focuses on family-friendly healthy food and lifestyle. I believe in feeding your family in a healthy way and to me that means eating ‘real’ foods. These are foods that are free of artificial flavorings, preservatives and flavorings. This also means that yes, we use real butter and if we are going to have sugar, it is sugar. We also believe it using with fresh, seasonal, and sustainably grown foods. I believe in preparing meals and snacks for my family in a quick and affordable way. I would say that we have a healthy diet 85-90% of the time, and the rest, I roll with the punches. We try to incorporate organic foods when and where we feel it is important but always do our best to avoid the ‘fake stuff’.

I believe in a healthy lifestyle and family: To us that includes being healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually. It includes great times with friends, life experiences and lots of hugging and laughing.

How did I come to believe in living this way? From the time I was a young girl, I witnessed the deaths of family members due to cancer, heart attacks, strokes and obesity related illness and even so much sadness from depression. Although, I cannot prove or say that many of the diseases/deaths in my family were caused by what they ate, it made me determined to raise myself and our children to respect their bodies through exercise and food. It also reminded me to enjoy the simple things in life and my children remind me of that every day.

You can also find me on Twitter @savorthethyme and the Facebook fan page will be coming soon!

Hi there - I was just checking out your blog – you have a lot of cool stuff on there! And I LOVE edamame – I’m more into savory, rather than sweet snacks. I’m excited to try your recipe!

Anyway, the reason I'm writing to you is because I work for an advertising agency that is looking for some bloggers like you (moms, writing about different life experiences, etc.) to review one of our products. Is that something you'd be interested in? If so, could you please let me know ( and I can send you some details so you can decide if you'd like to take part?

Thanks you :-)

Hello Jennifer!

I came across your blog and I like how your blog is promoting green living.

I am currently interning at Market Day and am curious to see if you would like to try out some samples of some products in our "Naturally...It's Clean" line. This line uses enzymes from plants to clean and are safer for you, your family, and the environment.

If you are interested in receiving some samples, please email me at:

With these samples, we are not asking for advertisement, only for your candid feedback.

Thank you for your time and have a lovely day.
