About Me


I’m Maria and I always have lots to talk about. What you need to know about me is simple:

I’m a New Jersey native living in Ohio for the past eight years. I now consider the Midwest my home. I’m a stay at home housewife and I’m learning about homemaking every day. I’m a step mother to three wonderful boys, and we’re trying to add to our brood. I have PCOS and we have been battling infertility for almost four years now. My husband and I have had a whirlwind romance and we’ve been flying high ever since. I’ve been blogging for over 4 years, and I was what most would consider a “giveaway blog.” I realized that I have so much more to offer than just a prize. I have wisdom, experiences, and a passion for advocacy to share with you all. I advocate for PCOS and Infertility and want to raise that awareness to my readers. I cook traditional Italian meals, and want to relate the tradition and culture to all of you. After all I’m a first generation American and I love being a part of both cultures!

I’m spunky and blunt and will call things as they are. There will be occasional cussing. I hope that you don’t have virgin ears and eyes! I also hope that you can take a joke, because with my Italian sense of humor, there’s plenty to go around!

I’m also on a weight loss journey thanks to Nutrisystem. To date I have lost 50lbs and a total of 10inches. I’m petite, Ok, Ok,  I’ll admit it, I’m short! I’m only 4’11 and the weight makes a big difference, not only to my health but my confidence as well. I’m trying to evoke health and weight loss in a budget friendly way. I believe that it’s important for the entire family to eat healthy together and stay healthy together without having your pockets burned.

I will offer a review and giveaway to my readers if I feel that it is relevant to me, my blog and to my readers. If you are a health company, (i.e PCOS related, infertility related, or weight loss related) I would love to work with you. Please visit my Media Kit for more information on how we can work together.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you stay a while! Please feel free to comment on any article you’d like. I love to respond!
