|About Our Food
At Making Thyme Kitchen we prepare the food you would cook for yourself if you had the thyme.
Hormone and Chemical Free Meats from Sobie Meats.
SobieMeats (in Walker, Michigan) is our main source for locally raised, hormone and chemical free, turkey, beef and pork. Sobie is also supplying us with hormone and chemical free poultry. Together, we will continue to supply you with the freshest, high-quality selection of meats and poultry available.
At Making Thyme Kitchen we look for entrées from a wide variety of ethnic origins, with a wide variety of flavors -- Creole Jambalaya, Lebanese Spinach Pie, Mexican Flank Steak with Salsa Verde, Asian Beef Satay, American Macaroni and Cheese -- to name a few. We pick ten entrées for each menu so that you have a wide variety to choose from every month.
The freshest and best quality ingredients go into our entrées. We make our sauces, marinades and stocks from scratch because often what we leave out is what matters most -- extra salt, hidden sugars, additives like msg, and hidden fats. We use whole fresh foods from local sources whenever possible: dried beans from Howard City, Kozee's Cream-Nut Peanut Butter, Sobie Meats in Walker, flour from Lowell and of course fresh Michigan produce in season. We work with lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, legumes and lowfat dairy.
Want Vegetarian or need Gluten Free - we can accomodate special orders that are pre-ordered. An additional fee may apply. Contact us to discuss what we can do.
We start with recipes from many different sources. We test them for taste, texture, availability of ingredients and interest. We try them fresh, then we try them frozen. We test them on friends, family and current customers and tweak what ever is necessary to get the final stamp of approval.
We work closely with local resources to find the freshest, high-quality ingredients available for our recipes. We look for hidden sugars, fats and salt, and often decide to make our ingredients from scratch. We start with whole foods whenever possible, and hand pick our produce.

Each store has a wide selection of fresh and frozen ready-to-cook entrees, and fresh and frozen sides and soups, salads, and desserts. You can buy one thing or fill your bag.
Every entrée is packaged in an easy to store freezer bag or foil cooking pan. Each entrée is labeled with clear cooking directions, an ingredient list, the date it was made, our contact information and serving suggestions
Our foil pans are aluminum, and you can defrost them in the microwave. (We didn't believe this either, until we tried it, and there were no sparks). There are three things to consider when microwaving aluminum pans: first, make sure that the microwave was manufactured after 1984; second, verify that the pans are 100% aluminum – ours are; and third, place the pan in the microwave without it touching the walls of the oven and remove the plastic cover.
