About Us

About Them Bites

Hi! We’re Maddy and JD – the team behind Them Bites.

Together, we have more than 30 years experience working professionally with food, as well as digital marketing and photojournalism.

Our love of food and our passion for creating content drove us to start a food blog. That, and our desire to have no more bosses and create something of our own.

We both strive to inspire others to enjoy cooking through thoughtful, engaging recipes, videos, and blog posts.
