About Me

Welcome to achefinthyme.com! My name is Angelie and I am your normal seventeen year old girl, ok not so much. Normal is overrated. I have always had a passion for food and photography so I decided to combine it and create a blog! My blog has a variety of foods; in the beginning of A Chef in Thyme, I mainly cooked, and now I mainly bake. So be prepared to drool over many sweets you wish you could eat! (Don’t worry, I share MOST of my recipes 🙂 ) Hope you will follow along on my culinary adventure!

Please contact me at achefinthyme@gmail.com if you have any constructive criticism or feedback.

  1. I have toured Johnson & Wales and taken a cooking class there. It was so much fun! Very excited to follow your journey from one foodie to another. And by the way….since you probably have no idea who I am….. I am a friend of your Mom and Michele. 🙂

    • I have heard lots about you (good things) 🙂 I would love to come up and do a cooking class at Johnson and Wales. That would be amazing! Thanks for being the first to follow me!

  2. hope your culinary journey is as joyous as mine has been, I opened and ran a tea room cafe in a small Georgia mountain town for 7 years and recently published a cookbook, A Dollop and A Pinch: Recipe and Stories from The Baron York. (check me out http://www.thebaronyork.com)
    Here’s cookin’ at you, kid!

  4. Hi Angelie,
    This is Christina Oxford, Chris’s wife. We have been checking out your blog this evening and love it! I do, however, have a couple of thoughts for you. First, I think your passion for food is terrific. How wonderful that you have discovered it and are acting on it at such a young age. Second, Chris and I attended culinary school together at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. We both started in the culinary program but after one semester I transferred into the baking and pastry program and was delighted! Just looking at your blog, it seems to me that you have an affinity for baking and pastry and perhaps you should consider switching over into that realm of food. Baking and cooking are completely different and so are most of the people who do it for a living. Baking is very methodical; you have to measure which drives most culinary chefs mad! You have definite talent in decorating and will understand all of the concept of baking in no time. Third, if you are going to go to culinary school, check out the Culinary Institute of America before you decide on Johnson and Wales.

    Best wishes in all of your endeavors!

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to read my blog! I definitely enjoy cooking, but I think I like baking because it challenges me. There are definitely times (as you may have read in my blog 🙂 ) where I was so frusturated with baking, I thought I would never do it again. Yet I always find myself doing it again. I’m not sure if Chris has told you but I will be accepting a job at Page’s Okra Grill helping the chef make the cakes and desserts. So maybe this will help me decide what I want to do before I head off to culinary school. I have looked into CIA, but haven’t made the college visit yet. I recently visited Johnson and Wales in May and I loved it, but I will definitely have to give CIA a second chance. Thanks so much for stopping by and giving me something to think about!

  5. Just wanted to say thanks for stopping in and checking out my food blog. I hope you enjoy the Caramel Apple Cake with Apple Cider Frosting along with a lot of other recipes!

  6. From a Pastry Chef: CIA is an awesome school but the Johnson and Wales’ baking program is more comprehensive. It’s actually a wonderful school all around and I think you will enjoy. It looks like you have a talent. Lots of luck and, above all, have fun!

    • Thank you so much! I really hope you enjoyed my blog! When I get to culinary school, hopefully I will be able to continue my blogging and show my followers what I’ve learned and how I have improved. Thanks for stopping by!
