Hey there! Welcome to Sweet Tea and Thyme.
I'm Eden Westbrook. I'm the recipe developer, photographer, and writer here at Sweet Tea and Thyme.
I'm a 20-something open book, who loves to cook.
I'm a meat and potatoes type of girl, who also really, really loves sushi.
I'm also an entrepreneur who loves to teach people how they can create successful online businesses through their love of food, too through my Run Your Food Blog like a Boss one on one consulting.
I was a Navy brat, who joined the Navy and married my high school sweetheart who --guess what-- is a Navy veteran. I was born and raised in the South, but grew up in South Florida. I traveled all over the South with my husband during our military days, living and growing our family in big melting pots and small towns alike, in Washington D.C., Texas, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and now currently living back in South Florida with our family and friends.
I went to culinary school when I was 22, but realized cooking in restaurant kitchens is not my passion! And when we were moving around, my friends would ask for recipes since they were leaving home for the first time, so this blog was really started for my friends and for my love of cooking. Couldn't just leave this culinary knowledge lying around doing nothing, right?
I wanted to give my readers the basics, family meals, date night meals, weeknight dishes, breakfasts, holidays, parties, you name it. I want to teach you how to cook, even if you burn water (I did that once!), I want you to be inspired to cook dishes you've never tried, I want you to know that if you want, dinner can be on the table most, if not every, night.
Here on Sweet Tea and Thyme, I focus on easy and diverse recipes that the everyday cook can make, especially us cooks who got a family to feed, and teaching even the most inexperienced person how to cook. All of my recipes are home-tested many times and approved by friends, family, and my preschooler, Greyson Ares.
