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 Strawberry LemonadeSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteGuacamolePico de GalloZucchini MuffinsStrawberry VinaigretteBlueberry Mango SalsaVegetable Farro BowlsStoplight SaladBlueberry CookiesBlueberry MuffinsBasic Massaged Kale SaladLemon-Pesto Summer Farro SaladPeach MuffinsZucchini-Raisin-Walnut CookiesPickled RadishesBlueberry Breakfast SmoothieStrawberry Lemon Ricotta MuffinsSummer Panzanella SaladCurrant PieKohlrabi Stir FryStrawberry PopsiclesHam and Bean ChiliFresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-QuichesGarden ChowderRoasted KohlrabiOrzo with Fresh Tomato and MozzarellaSummer GazpachoBlueberry Apple-Cinnamon PancakesBlueberry Zucchini MuffinsSpicy Fruit CrispPeach SalsaBlueberry-Peach MuffinsMango-Carrot-Kohlrabi SlawZucchini FrittersHomemade Canned SalsaGreek Salad and VinaigretteBlueberry Iced TeaLemon Fennel Chicken SaladWhat I’ve been cooking up!
