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 Bloody Mary Pot RoastOrange Cranberry Nut MuffinsVegetarian Loaded Baked PotatoesKale and Potato MashRoasted Red Pepper and Tomato SoupButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataRoasted Butternut Squash and Sausage FrittataBasic Massaged Kale SaladGingerbread GranolaSlow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesWinter SangriaApple Cider MimosasSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteSpice-Roasted CarrotsHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupSlow Cooker ChiliWhat I’ve been cooking up!
