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 Slow Cooker “Roasted” Sweet PotatoesSlow Cooker ChiliQuinoa and Kale-Stuffed Acorn SquashSausage, Apple and Cheddar FrittataPotato, Kale and Egg PizzaButternut Squash and Sage Orzo RisottoBloody Mary Pot RoastWarm Turmeric Milk LatteRoasted Red Pepper and Tomato SoupSpice-Roasted CarrotsVegetarian Loaded Baked PotatoesMassaged Kale Salad with Kombucha VinaigretteSlow Cooker Butternut Squash SoupRoasted Butternut Squash and Sausage FrittataBasic Massaged Kale SaladWinter Farro Salad with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and GreensApple Cider MimosasHearty Tomato, Bean and Kale SoupWinter SangriaOrange Cranberry Nut MuffinsGingerbread GranolaSlow Cooker Sausage and Barley StewKale and Potato MashMaple Quinoa Spinach SaladWhat I’ve been cooking up!
