WELCOME TO KILLING THYME
ABOUT THE BLOG
Killing Thyme is a pescetarian focused blog. If you love all things from the dirt, the trees and the sea, you’re in the right place. Here, you’ll find a collection of dazzling eats that are either plant-based or include sustainably sourced seafood + fish.
While you’re here, please take a moment to read a smidgen about where I’m coming from as a recipe developer, as this blog’s voice and, more importantly, as a human being.
- I push the importance of sustainable seafood and you can read a more in-depth commentary about why here. However. I want my readers to know that I understand that sustainable seafood can be expensive ($$$!) and, at the end of the day, that can make or break it for someone. I do not judge you; I get it. I think every little bit counts. If you can buy sustainably half the time — or heck, even a quarter of the time — you’re still participating in making a difference. If you ever want to chat about it, feel free to contact me. I’d be more than happy to suggest some good places to start and to set you off in the right direction.
- My blog reflects 80% of my lifestyle; the other 20%, where I’m eating tacos every Tuesday or stuffing pizza into my pie hole, isn’t all that blog-worthy. BUT. I don’t believe in food shaming, and I too can be found shamelessly eating an entire box of mac and cheese straight out of the pot some days. I don’t want the content on this blog to paint me as some glowing-skinned free-spirit who has it all together (not that I even come close to appearing that way). I want you to know that despite my excitement over putting a healthier spin on things, I’m not here to tell you how to eat. I’m just here to nudge you with some alluring ideas and hopefully, at some point, make you laugh and feel good.
Welcome to moderation. It’s a happy place.
BEHIND THE BLOG
I’m Dana; a coffee-reliant freelance food writer + blogger with a healthy appetite, a taste for culinary adventure, a thirst for good beers and an endless hunger for food photography. I’m exuberant, unswerving, funny and loving with a sparkling dash of misanthropy.
I grew up in Canada and recently relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina. My maple syrup blood can hardly handle the hot and sticky summer, but my heart loves the vibe here and I’ve never been happier.
I’m a total sucker for bottle shops, craft breweries, Angry Orchard ciders, DuClaw porters, animals (especially cats; especially mY cat, Tilly), outer space, East and Southeast Asian cuisine, Netflix bingeing, RPGs, and everything 80s/90s.
My three favorite words in the entire world are, “the pizza’s here.”
