Maryann Ridini Spencer

Aloha, Friends! Welcome to my Simply Delicious Living Blog where I share my easy-to-make, delicious, healthy recipes made with real ingredients as well as my “How-To” cooking videos from the “Simply Delicious Living with Maryann®,” my award-winning TV series and blog. You’ll also find simply ALOHA living stainable body, mind, spirit living articles and podcasts that serve to inspire you to create your unique, simple, delicious living 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, Time Warner Cable, PBS-TV, DirecTV, Dish Network, and Roku (Simply Delicious Living Channel), as well as work as a print food and lifestyle editor and writer for a number of magazines and newspapers.

I invite you to visit the eight portals on this page. The Plumeria Café® is where you’ll find my easy-to-make, simply delicious 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 My News & Musings, you’ll find some of my latest news and musings!  There are also portals to my podcasts, youtube channel (featuring segments from the TV series), as well as our “Simply Delicious Living” quarterly magazine, and a pathway to my novels and cookbooks!
