Aloha, Friends! Welcome to my Simply Delicious Living Blog where I share my easy-to-make, healthy recipes made with real ingredients as well as my “How-To” cooking videos from “Simply Delicious Living with Maryann®,” my award-winning TV series and blog. You’ll also find ALOHA living stainable body, mind, spirit living articles and podcasts that serve to inspire you to create your unique recipe for the joy, harmony, and balance you deserve personally and professionally.
Growing up on the East Coast in a large, close-knit Italian-Irish family, I developed a love for cooking and entertaining at an early age. This passion preparing healthy dishes and memorable dining experiences for family and friends led me to start developing recipes. Eventually, I began to write and produce TV cooking segments for entertainment and lifestyle series on such broadcast outlets as Cable News Network, Lifetime, USA Network, and Time Warner Cable, as well as work as a food and lifestyle writer and editor and for a number of magazines and newspapers. I guess you can say that my lifelong passion for writing and cooking finally gave birth to “Simply Delicious Living.”
I invite you to visit the eight portals on this page. The Plumeria Café® is where you’ll find my recipes made with healthy ingredients (some of which are featured on the“Simply Delicious Living with Maryann®” TV series)…Sustainable Home & Office shares eco-friendly articles, crafts & entertaining ideas. Body, Mind, Spirit Joy delivers inspirations for a happy, balanced personal & professional life, and in The Writer’s Pantry, you’ll find some of my latest news and musings! There are also portals to my podcasts, YouTube channel, the “Simply Delicious Living” quarterly magazine, and a pathway to my novels and cookbooks!
