This week was pretty rough in our household. I’ll spare you the details, but between my knee injury continuing to keep me off my feet and both Sam and I coming down with the flu one after the other, it hasn’t been easy. I’m still recovering, but I managed to come out of my illness haze long enough to pull together some links for you. Hope you enjoy, and have a great (and healthy) Valentine’s Day tomorrow – we can all use the excuse to spread some love.   Speaking of the holiday, I found The Dark Origins of Valentine’s Day amusing and […]

Valentine's Day Recipe Round-Up | Feast In Thyme

Valentine’s Day Recipe Round-Up

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Whether it’s baking heart-shaped cookies with your family and friends or an excuse to buy that expensive bottle of wine to share with your significant other, it’s a wonderfully sappy holiday to celebrate with food. When I hurt my knee, I had to scrap many of my original recipe tests for the upcoming weeks. I might not be able to test any new Valentine’s themed recipes myself, but I thought I’d share these delicious recipes from across the web instead. Take a look – I hope one (or more!) inspire you to give the […]

Dumpling Galaxy Cookbook Review | Feast In Thyme

The Dumpling Galaxy | A Cookbook Review

Food plays such an important role in our memories of the past. I’m sure you have this experience with a flavor or meal – a type of cake your mother makes you for special occasions; the taste of a street food from a trip to someplace faraway and exotic; a special dinner you only eat on certain holidays or for special occasions. Helen You describes dumplings as one such food from her childhood, and in 2014 she turned that love into the restaurant Dumpling Galaxy in Flushing, New York. Just last month, she released her first cookbook of the same […]

Thymeline 01 | Feast In Thyme

Thymeline 01

Welcome to Thymeline, a new semi-weekly series where I post updates on my life and goings-on and a list of my favorite links from around the web. I always run into things I’d like to share, so I figure this is the best way to do it! *** Like much of the country, yesterday we celebrated Super Bowl Sunday! It was our very first tiny get-together in the new apartment, and my husband and I have been looking forward to it for months. We briefly debated cancelling after my knee injury, but we decided to go through with it. We knew the small […]

Super Bowl Sunday | Party Prep Round-Up

Super Bowl Sunday | Party Prep Round-Up

There is less than a week to go until Super Bowl Sunday. Your guests are invited. Your shopping list is ready. You’ve picked up your home (as much as you care to). What’s left? It’s easy to forget the little things in the midst of planning a party, so to help with your event prep, I pulled together some ideas and must-haves. Super Bowl parties are often casual, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you already need to get things like disposable plates, cups, and tablecloths anyway though, why not add some themed touches to take yours to the next […]

Giant Baked Hot Wings with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing | Feast In Thyme

Giant Baked Hot Wings with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing | Super Bowl Sunday

Hot wings are a fan-favorite at any gameday party. I think it’s become tradition for many to have some variety of these flavors at any given sports event, so I had to include my favorite version in my Super Bowl recipe series this year. These Giant Baked Hot Wings with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing will be a crowd-pleasing snack at any event, and they are simple and hassle-free to make. You don’t have to point it out – I know these “wings” are actually giant drumsticks, and there isn’t an actual wing to be found. I can’t say I’m sorry about […]

Three Citrus Vanilla Marmalade | Feast In Thyme

Three Citrus Vanilla Marmalade | FIJ Mastery Challenge 2017

Earlier this month, one of my favorite bloggers – Marisa McClellan of Food In Jars – announced she would be hosting a year-long food preservation mastery challenge. Each month she will feature a new skill, following up with sample recipes and posts on how to accomplish the technique. She even started an online Facebook group, where participants in the challenge can share their triumphs (and failures), ask for advice, and just chat with other canners and preservationists. Between the move and the holidays, I haven’t canned anything since November. This is a stark change from a few months ago, when […]

Hawaiian Beef Sliders with Bacon, Pineapple & Candied Jalapeno | Feast In Thyme

Hawaiian Beef Sliders with Bacon, Pineapple & Candied Jalapeno | Super Bowl Sunday

This burger recipe is several years in the making. It combines some of my all-time favorite things – sweet and savory, pineapples and jalapenos, and of course, gooey cheese. I should begin by saying that I have a very special relationship with a good hamburger. If you were to ask me on the spot what my favorite dinner food is, I’d probably say either duck or short ribs. If I really think about it though, I’m not sure that’s accurate. As delicious as those are, they’ve yet to inspire in me the same deep-seated, irresistible desire that I get for […]

Candied Jalapeno Slices | Feast In Thyme

Candied Jalapeno Slices

Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite canning recipes, and the first preserving technique I’ve yet to post to the blog. If you like sweet and spicy heat, Candied Jalapeno Slices are deliciously addictive and this is the post for you! I started canning about a year and a half ago. Before that, I’d always assumed preserving would cost a lot to get into, both in equipment and produce. After a quick look online though, I found out I could get a starter kit (like this one or this one) on Amazon for around $10, and that my stockpot […]

Pretzel Pastry Pigs with Hard Cheddar Cheese Sauce | Feast In Thyme

Pretzel Pastry Pigs with Hard Cider Cheddar Cheese Sauce | Super Bowl Sunday

I know it’s only January, but my mind has already been on the Super Bowl for months. I can’t wait for the game on February 5th, or more importantly, to the first real get-together we’ll be hosting at the new place. While I am not nor have I ever been a sports fan personally, my husband is a dedicated football fan. It would be hard not to get at least a little involved after being together as long as we’ve been. I think I even finally found an appreciation for the game itself last year. Now I can (mostly) follow […]
