Welcome to our new blog, Deliciousness of Yum! Be sure to bookmark us or become a follower. We'll be adding updates soon.

In the meantime, get to know us.

Who we are: Greta and Lydia are 30-something sisters who live outside of Seattle, WA (Lydia wants you to know that Greta's the oldest!). We grew up on the East Coast (in Maryland, land of the blue crab) with a great cook--our mother. We both love to cook, but since we both work, and because our lives are crazier than we'd sometimes like, we don't get into the kitchen as much as we want. We plan to use this blog as a way of recording our culinary successes and failures, to talk about cooking, baking, eating, and other foodie things.

Greta is a science nerd by day and an bona fide Sci-Fi fan by night. She is a dedicated mom to a 7 year old boy who has a picky palate. We're still not sure what's up with the kid's lack of culinary adventure.

Lydia hates her day job but loves to write. In her other blog, Kiss and Makeup, she has explored the world of makeup for the past four years. She is married with no kids but has two insane, high-maintenance kitties.

Why the crazy name? When we eat something really good (like a super yummy slice of pizza or an exceptional plate of tikka masala) we refer to it as "deliciousness of yum." Neither one of us knows where this got started, but it's stuck and it has become part of our foodie vocabulary.

We'll be getting this blog rolling soon, so watch this space!
