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 TodayVegetable Farro BowlsPeach MuffinsPico de GalloLemon Fennel Chicken SaladBlueberry-Peach MuffinsBlueberry Breakfast SmoothieBlueberry Iced TeaFresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-QuichesBlueberry CookiesPickled RadishesOrzo with Fresh Tomato and MozzarellaSpicy Fruit CrispBasic Massaged Kale SaladPeach SalsaGreek Salad and VinaigretteBlueberry Zucchini MuffinsLemon-Pesto Summer Farro SaladStoplight SaladBlueberry Mango SalsaZucchini-Raisin-Walnut CookiesSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteHomemade Canned SalsaZucchini MuffinsSummer Panzanella SaladCurrant PieRoasted KohlrabiMango-Carrot-Kohlrabi SlawStrawberry Lemon Ricotta MuffinsStrawberry PopsiclesSummer GazpachoStrawberry VinaigretteBlueberry MuffinsBlueberry Apple-Cinnamon PancakesHam and Bean ChiliKohlrabi Stir FryGarden ChowderZucchini FrittersStrawberry LemonadeGuacamoleWhat I’ve been cooking up!
