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 Slow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupKale and Potato MashHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupSpice-Roasted CarrotsSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesVegetarian Loaded Baked PotatoesMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoSlow Cooker ChiliMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteRoasted Red Pepper and Tomato SoupApple Cider MimosasSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataBloody Mary Pot RoastQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashBasic Massaged Kale SaladWhat I’ve been cooking up!
