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 Strawberry VinaigretteSoba Noodles with Sugar Snap Peas and Cashew SauceStrawberry and Kale SmoothieAsparagus Wrapped in ProsciuttoSpring Panzanella SaladSpring Greens Salad with Citrus VinaigretteBasic Massaged Kale SaladSausage and Kale RisottoStrawberry Lemon Ricotta MuffinsFresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-QuichesVegetarian Stracciatella SoupSpring Soba Noodle SaladStrawberry PopsiclesSpring Enchiladas with Cilantro-Lime SauceCreamy Spring Pasta with Peas and AsparagusStrawberry Rhubarb CrispSpinach, Caramelized Onion, and Bacon PizzaRadish DipSpinach HummusRhubarb SauceRoasted KohlrabiRhubarb Mint Iced TeaSpring GazpachoStrawberry LemonadeSausage and Spinach FrittataStrawberry Mint MuffinsSpinach, Caramelized Onion, and Bacon FrittataBasic Green SmoothieMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigrettePickled RadishesSpinach and Mushroom QuesadillasStrawberry-Rhubarb SangriaRhubarb MuffinsWhat I’ve been cooking up!
