About Me

Hey there!

Want free access to all the fact-filled food advice and best tasting recipes? If the answers yes, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to Tasty Thyme, where I share my passions for all foods. I wanted to share my love for cuisine publicly , so I thought ‘hey, why not have a go at being a food blogger?It seems fun,’. I have not regretted that decision since.Ever since I started Tasty Thyme, I’ve bettered myself as an aspiring chef, and it’s been such an enjoyable experience for me.

My name is Vanessa Yakubu, and I am a student in London. I live with my mum, dad, brother and sister, and I am the middle born child. When I was younger ,me ,my sister and my mum would often bake tasty treats for fun, and it was the best! I found getting creative in the kitchen fascinating, decorating cupcakes with sprinkles and licking batter off wooden spoons was kinda my thing. My parents were both reasonably good cooks, plus we ordered from a range of restaurants from time to time, so iv’e grown up eating quality food. I love trying out foods from different cultures, learning it’s origins and testing unique flavours.

How it all started

I was scrolling through my phone one day, and I realised how much i eat. It’s like, a lot. All the restaurants, cafes recipes you could possibly think of were all there. I honestly didn’t know how to feel at that moment in time.Anyways, I decided to put my gourmet knowledge into good use, by sharing it with you guys! My mum has a website of her own, www.socialmarketingart.com , so she had loads of knowledge on how to set up a website. She was delighted to hear that I was interested in making my own website, and she helped me out in doing so. Not to toot my own horn, but I’m pretty tech savvy if I do say so myself ,as I managed to understand everything in a short amount of time. My mother helped me with the fundamentals and I helped her and her website with the creative aspects, as I enjoy thinking outside of the box.

With the website making complete, I moved on to the simpler stuff. Social media platforms. I was already using Instagram and Twitter, so making business accounts was pretty straight forward for me. Pinterest,however,was not as smooth. I had been using Pinterest previously, but unlike Insta and Twitter, their business accounts are a lot different to their personal accounts. The amount of confusion I was in! My Pinterest isn’t as active as my other platforms, but fingers crossed it’ll get there.

Anyhow, that’s enough rattling about me. The time you’ve spent reading this could’ve been used looking at those rather tasty recipes I’ve got right here. Toodles!
