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 Sausage, Apple and Cheddar Frittata Warm Turmeric Milk Latte Bloody Mary Pot Roast Maple Quinoa Spinach Salad Apple Cider Mimosas Slow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet Potatoes Orange Cranberry Nut Muffins Massaged Kale Salad with Kombucha Vinaigrette Slow Cooker Sausage and Barley Stew Spice-Roasted Carrots Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup Vegetarian Loaded Baked Potatoes Quinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn Squash Hearty Tomato, Bean and Kale Soup Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup Winter Farro Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Greens Butternut Squash and Sage Orzo Risotto Roasted Butternut Squash and Sausage Frittata Gingerbread Granola Slow Cooker Chili Basic Massaged Kale Salad Potato, Kale and Egg Pizza Kale and Potato Mash Winter SangriaWhat I’ve been cooking up!
