About Maria

As a conceptual designer and thinker, I always strive to develop ideas based on an original and unconventional approach.With a professional training in Product Design and Interior & Living Design, 
my practice has evolved throughout the past years by focusing on products, spaces and user experience design. This led me to develop a passion for interactive media and communication strategies, often influencing my teaching at the Lebanese American University.

When I found myself alone in Italy, I had to cook to survive and that’s how my love for cooking was born! 🙂

I perceive cooking as a meditation tool, but find satisfaction only after sharing the tasting experience with friends! Yes, my food is yummy and you should try it!

I like to explore cooking with colors, textures, forms and emotions, I mix them up intuitively so it’s always hard to write an accurate recipe with exact quantities! What matters though is the look (for dreaming)… then the taste (for feeling)!

Happy eating!

Nutella Brownies

What’s a home without some dessert lying around, right? I haven’t baked for weeks due to crazy schedules and lack of time and I really miss it! Baking has always been some kind of therapy, drowning my feelings unto that mixing bowl and traveling far far away in thoughts and dreams. But then I realized that baking doesn’t have to take that much time and effort! You can always whip out something fast and easy, with a few ingredients that you surely have in your cupboard. That’s why I’ve decided to share with you the easiest Nutella Brownies recipe ever (found on this blog a long time ago). You only need 3 ingredients and it takes 20 minutes to prepare AND bake these nutella brownies. So here we go.

What you’ll need:


– 2 eggs

– 2 cups Nutella

– 1 cup All-purpose flour

How to make it:

1) In a bowl, whisk the eggs then add the Nutella and mix

2) Add the flour and mix


3) Spoon the whole thing unto a greased square mold


4) Bake for 10 minutes until the top is cracked but a toothpick doesn’t come out clean

5) Let it cool for 5 minutes in the moldbrownie-out-of-the-oven

6) Cut into squares, place in a plate and let cool completely


Enjoy for days! 🙂 Happy short therapy for busy people!
