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 Currant PieVegetable Farro BowlsSummer Panzanella SaladGreek Salad and VinaigretteBlueberry-Peach MuffinsStrawberry LemonadeMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteStoplight SaladHomemade Canned SalsaGarden ChowderPickled RadishesBlueberry Iced TeaGuacamoleBlueberry Mango SalsaZucchini MuffinsBlueberry Apple-Cinnamon PancakesStrawberry VinaigretteBlueberry CookiesFresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-QuichesBlueberry Zucchini MuffinsBasic Massaged Kale SaladHam and Bean ChiliBlueberry MuffinsMango-Carrot-Kohlrabi SlawLemon-Pesto Summer Farro SaladRoasted KohlrabiPeach SalsaOrzo with Fresh Tomato and MozzarellaBlueberry Breakfast SmoothiePico de GalloZucchini FrittersKohlrabi Stir FryStrawberry PopsiclesZucchini-Raisin-Walnut CookiesSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupPeach MuffinsSummer GazpachoLemon Fennel Chicken SaladStrawberry Lemon Ricotta MuffinsSpicy Fruit CrispWhat I’ve been cooking up!
