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 Warm Lentil and Rice Salad with Roasted Carrots and ChickpeasApple-Raisin MuffinsMulled Apple Cider Iced TeaApple, Cheddar and Cranberry TurnoversApple-Cinnamon-Ginger KombuchaSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupSausage and Kale RisottoCurried Potato-Apple-Lentil SaladRoasted Butternut Squash and Sausage FrittataMarrakesh StewSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataRoasted KohlrabiRed Curry Lemongrass SoupApple Crumb PieKale and Potato MashMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladApple-Carrot MuffinsFall Harvest Salad with Orange-Cranberry VinaigrettePotato, Kale and Egg PizzaSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupCranberry-Apple Pecan PancakesApple Cider MimosasApple and Oat Breakfast BarHarvest StewBasic Massaged Kale SaladRoasted Brussels Sprouts, Apple and SalamiButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoSpice-Roasted CarrotsSweet Potato Skillet HashVegetable Barley SoupMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashChai Spiced LatteGrilled Sweet Potato SaladApple Oatmeal Raisin CookiesPotato-Apple-Fennel Chopped SaladBloody Mary Pot RoastHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupOrange Cranberry Nut MuffinsPumpkin MuffinsCarrot-Pineapple MuffinsRoasted Sweet Potato HummusWhat I’ve been cooking up!
