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 Apple Oatmeal Raisin CookiesMulled Apple Cider Iced TeaSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashVegetable Barley SoupRoasted Sweet Potato HummusSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupApple-Carrot MuffinsHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupApple Crumb PieApple and Oat Breakfast BarCranberry-Apple Pecan PancakesFall Harvest Salad with Orange-Cranberry VinaigrettePotato-Apple-Fennel Chopped SaladRed Curry Lemongrass SoupPumpkin MuffinsSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupOrange Cranberry Nut MuffinsSausage and Kale RisottoCarrot-Pineapple MuffinsSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesBasic Massaged Kale SaladKale and Potato MashCurried Potato-Apple-Lentil SaladMarrakesh StewApple, Cheddar and Cranberry TurnoversWarm Lentil and Rice Salad with Roasted Carrots and ChickpeasSweet Potato Skillet HashRoasted Brussels Sprouts, Apple and SalamiApple Cider MimosasRoasted KohlrabiGrilled Sweet Potato SaladPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaApple-Cinnamon-Ginger KombuchaApple-Raisin MuffinsMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladChai Spiced LatteHarvest StewMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteSpice-Roasted CarrotsBloody Mary Pot RoastButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoRoasted Butternut Squash and Sausage FrittataWhat I’ve been cooking up!
