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!
