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 HereTry a New Seasonal Recipe Today Strawberry Popsicles Peach Muffins Blueberry Zucchini Muffins Mango-Carrot-Kohlrabi Slaw Fresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-Quiches Peach Salsa Spicy Fruit Crisp Basic Massaged Kale Salad Summer Panzanella Salad Blueberry Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes Orzo with Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Guacamole Stoplight Salad Greek Salad and Vinaigrette Roasted Kohlrabi Kohlrabi Stir Fry Homemade Canned Salsa Strawberry Vinaigrette Blueberry Iced Tea Zucchini Muffins Garden Chowder Warm Vegetable and Farro Salad Bowl Blueberry Cookies Zucchini Fritters Strawberry Lemonade Blueberry Muffins Lemon Fennel Chicken Salad Ham and Bean Chili Blueberry-Peach Muffins Pickled Radishes Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie Strawberry Lemon Ricotta Muffins Lemon-Pesto Summer Farro Salad Massaged Kale Salad with Kombucha Vinaigrette Summer Gazpacho Zucchini-Raisin-Walnut Cookies Currant Pie Pico de Gallo Blueberry Mango Salsa Slow Cooker Tuscan SoupWhat I’ve been cooking up!
