Maria Hauschel learned from her mother early in life that each meal is special even if there's not much time to prepare it. In her family everyone lives to eat, and this passion was passed from mother to daughter along with a knack for creating mouthwatering recipes for the toaster oven.
A native of London, Ontario, Maria has spent time in Toronto and San Francisco. From 1983 to 1987, she attended the University of Western Ontario, and then completed a Certificate in Public Relations at Ryerson Polytechnic University. Maria now resides in Vancouver.
