About Me

Hola, I’m Nicole, and creator of Soulful Thyme- my online recipe box. I grew up in Florida, where I first learned to cook by watching my Nicaraguan mother create colorful and delicious dishes. I moved to Birmingham, Alabama for University and met, fell in love with, and married my wonderful Australian husband- Andy. Last year, we moved down under to Andy’s home city of Sydney, Australia.

For a while, my own passion for cooking did not translate into the flavors I wanted to express. It took years to find my own unique combinations of texture, zest, and spice. I made this website with the understanding that everybody has their own unique taste for food. That being said, you won’t see me posting any recipes entitled “best ever” or “ultimate”, because I know food can always be bettered and personalized.  I hope to inspire you with new creations from my kitchen to yours. Enjoy following along on my cooking adventures and sharing some of your own! Let’s get cooking!

Some of my favorite things:

Spicy foods, Playing soccer (pretty much anything outdoors), Tacos, Dark roast black coffee, and Spontaneous midnight baking!
