Meet our Featured Food Blogger Alyssa!


Alyssa Brantley develops delicious recipes that are easy to master. Not only is her website, Everyday Maven, filled with amazing dishes, but she has conveniently categorized them so you can find exactly what you need — beans, diet, points, dairy free, gluten free, grain free, nut free, and more!

Each dish is coded with little green allergy icon that makes it easy to find a meal that fits your allergy diet. The recipes are made with real food and don’t involve overly processed ingredients.

Alyssa grew up in a family where unexpected guests were welcome anytime to share in the family meal. Her mother’s attitude was, “Don’t miss dinner, just bring your friend.”

Now living in the Pacific Northwest, this young mom of two boys hopes that she can create the same welcoming table for her sons. I predict that there will be a lot of friends coming to dinner in the future to enjoy her delicious food!

As the weather gets colder, this Italian Meatball Sausage Soup with Cabbage and White Beans will be perfect for lunch or dinner.
