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