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 Pickled RadishesRoasted KohlrabiStrawberry LemonadeVegetable Farro BowlsSummer Panzanella SaladStrawberry PopsiclesBlueberry MuffinsMango-Carrot-Kohlrabi SlawGuacamoleBlueberry Mango SalsaZucchini-Raisin-Walnut CookiesKohlrabi Stir FryGreek Salad and VinaigretteGarden ChowderBlueberry-Peach MuffinsSlow Cooker Tuscan SoupZucchini MuffinsLemon Fennel Chicken SaladPeach MuffinsPeach SalsaCurrant PieBasic Massaged Kale SaladSpicy Fruit CrispPico de GalloSummer GazpachoStrawberry Lemon Ricotta MuffinsMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteBlueberry CookiesHomemade Canned SalsaBlueberry Zucchini MuffinsStoplight SaladBlueberry Breakfast SmoothieZucchini FrittersFresh Herb, Onion, and Ricotta Mini-QuichesBlueberry Iced TeaStrawberry VinaigretteHam and Bean ChiliLemon-Pesto Summer Farro SaladBlueberry Apple-Cinnamon PancakesOrzo with Fresh Tomato and MozzarellaWhat I’ve been cooking up!
