Welcome to my blog!
My name is Maria and together we will explore real… cooking! We will use real ingredients and cook from scratch! No preservatives, no additives, no chemical components. We do not compromise neither when it comes to taste, nor when it comes to the quality of our ingredients. Easy, healthy, tasty and quick recipes for your everyday family meals but also more exquisite tastes for the ones who are more advanced. Pick your favorites, experiment with the ingredients and the recipes, create your own. Change the way you eat and by doing so improve the way of life and the health of your whole family.
I first started cooking “differently” when I first became a mom. I felt the responsibility of having to choose what to feed my child so heavy, that it made me want to be very cautious and choose very carefully what I gave him. So, I started reading, looking for recipes and alternatives to sugar and other unhealthy things I was eating up until then, trying and experimenting, which I keep on doing! Changing the way a whole family eats is a challenge, because you share all this “different stuff” with others! So I have to say a big thank you to my husband and kids, who support this effort without complaints (when something does not come out exactly the way it was supposed to!) and with new ideas that enrich the recipes.
As many of our friends started trying these recipes, they got excited and started asking for the recipes. That is how this blog was created, so everyone can find the recipes anytime and file them easily in their recipe books!
I am also looking forward to your recipes, the ones you like but avoid, so we can adjust them and make them healthy in the Recipe Makeover!
My moto is TRY! Forget the idea that healthy can’t also be tasty, or that it’s boring. Some you will love, others may be indifferent to you but you will find tastes that will definitely become your favorite! You will be happily surprised!
Your rewards will be many: more sustainable energy, better health and also the need to buy new clothes… as the old ones will be loose!
Bon voyage in the never-ending world of taste!
