Hello and Welcome!My name is Maria and I am passionate about…some might even say “obsessed with”…food! Mostly the healthy, organic, local, seasonal sort of food. I love searching for and creating new recipes to use the food that is available to me in a way that tastes good while also nourishing our bodies, our souls, and the planet.Easier said than done, right? If you also want to eat healthy, save time, and enjoy life, I hope that you will find something here that inspires and motivates you to try something new. Big changes can only be made with small steps!Start Your Journey Here Try a New Seasonal Recipe Today Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Apple and SalamiRoasted Sweet Potato HummusSausage and Kale RisottoSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupApple-Carrot MuffinsCranberry-Apple Pecan PancakesQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashRoasted KohlrabiCarrot-Pineapple MuffinsBloody Mary Pot RoastVegetable Barley SoupChai Spiced LatteApple Cider MimosasHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataHarvest StewMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoRed Curry Lemongrass SoupCurried Potato-Apple-Lentil SaladApple and Oat Breakfast BarKale and Potato MashFall Harvest Salad with Orange-Cranberry VinaigretteMarrakesh StewMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteGrilled Sweet Potato SaladPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaBasic Massaged Kale SaladApple Crumb PieSpice-Roasted CarrotsApple Oatmeal Raisin CookiesPotato-Apple-Fennel Chopped SaladSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesApple, Cheddar and Cranberry TurnoversSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupMulled Apple Cider Iced TeaSweet Potato Skillet HashWhat I’ve been cooking up!
