I invite you to explore the portals on this page. The Plumeria Café® is where you’ll find my recipes made with healthy ingredients and “How-To” cooking videos from the award-winning Simply Delicious Living with Maryann® TV series. Sustainable Home & Office shares eco-friendly articles, crafts & entertaining ideas. Body, Mind, Spirit Joy delivers ALOHA inspirations for a happy, balanced personal & professional life, and in The Writer’s Pantry, you’ll find some of my latest news and musings! Also enjoy podcasts, videos & more.

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 for 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 PBS-TV (KVCR-TV in Southern California), Cable News Network, Lifetime, USA Network, and Time Warner Cable, as well as work as a food and lifestyle writer and editor at many magazines and newspapers (Ventura County Star, Palm Springs Life, Desert Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, etc.). I guess you can say that my lifelong passion for writing, cooking, entertaining with family and friends, and the pursuit of living creatively with joy finally gave birth to “Simply Delicious Living.”

I hope you get inspired to create your unique recipe for the joy, harmony, and balance you deserve personally and professionally!
