Hi everyone and welcome to Maria’s Mixing Bowl.  We are so glad you stopped by.  A little bit about us. I am a former hairstylist and full time foodie.  Growing up in an Italian household food was the centerpiece of everything. I enjoy cooking and sharing my food. I especially enjoy making easy meals that can be enjoyed by the family.  I try to make every recipe as easy as possible.

I enjoy all kinds of food including recipe remakes, family favorites, some recipes that I have been making since I was a child , recipes from my Mom’s recipe box, recipes I make over and over for my family , comfort foods and more.

I take most recipes and remake them by taking 3 or 4 recipes and putting what I like from each of them together and coming up with one amazing dish.  I hope you enjoy them all and visit often.

Rob my husband is my kitchen helper and spends plenty of time in the kitchen as well.  Especially since I became sick last year. He pretty much runs the blog and the kitchen now.  It is our time together so this is his blog almost more than mine. Sometimes I just let him take over and do his own thing lol. It’s always delicious. He has many talents so let him show off I say!!

I hope you visit often and enjoy and share our recipes. Feel free to send us a message if there is a recipe your looking for and we will see if you can find it for you if we don’t already have it.

We not only enjoy spending time in the kitchen but are looking forward to building our little peace of heaven. We recently bought land on Lake Winnipesaukee and have beautiful mountain views and water views as well.  Our dream is to be able to spend time alone, taking long rides and just doing nothing together. Cooking together, being together and loving our life. We have some amazing friends and family that are very special to us and we are so grateful for them. Pretty simple life but that’s what makes us happy.

We hope you enjoy our easy home style cooking!
