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 Fall Harvest Salad with Orange-Cranberry VinaigretteApple-Carrot MuffinsSausage and Kale RisottoRoasted Brussels Sprouts, Apple and SalamiApple, Cheddar and Cranberry TurnoversRoasted Sweet Potato HummusSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupPotato-Apple-Fennel Chopped SaladMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteApple Oatmeal Raisin CookiesVegetable Barley SoupQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladKale and Potato MashSpice-Roasted CarrotsHarvest StewMarrakesh StewBloody Mary Pot RoastRoasted KohlrabiApple Cider MimosasGrilled Sweet Potato SaladApple and Oat Breakfast BarMulled Apple Cider Iced TeaHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupCranberry-Apple Pecan PancakesPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaChai Spiced LatteSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataCarrot-Pineapple MuffinsSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesApple Crumb PieSweet Potato Skillet HashBasic Massaged Kale SaladCurried Potato-Apple-Lentil SaladRed Curry Lemongrass SoupWhat I’ve been cooking up!
