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 Vegetarian Loaded Baked PotatoesSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoBloody Mary Pot RoastSpice-Roasted CarrotsBasic Massaged Kale SaladApple Cider MimosasQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaKale and Potato MashMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesSlow Cooker ChiliSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladRoasted Red Pepper and Tomato SoupHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupWhat I’ve been cooking up!
