Hi, I’m Mary Guiver, the wine, beer, and spirits buyer for Whole Foods Market, specifically for the Northern California and Reno region. I’m contributing to Cooking Stoned to help consumers like yourself better understand the ever-changing landscape of sustainable food and drink. I’m going on my tenth year in the industry as a produce buyer, […]
Wait, before we get started. Yes I’m a documented meat lover and this site is dedicated to you wonderful veggies out there. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love a good meatless meal, though. In fact, I try to go meatless, and even vegan, whenever I can because it’s good for me, good for Momma […]
Tasty, easy to make, and way better than your boyfriend. Yup, these tasty morsels will never let you down. Whether it’s the Guacamole Grilled Cheese or the Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast Sandwich, these sandwich recipes are loads of fun on a bun! Well, when there is a bun… that is. So let’s get […]
This Friday I want to mix things up a little bit. Lately we’ve been reviewing sustainable wines and the occasional beer. But not all of you like to get down with the grapes and grains, oh no. Some of you out there like to fancy yourself to be a mixologist. Well if that’s the case, […]
Yesterday we celebrated the coming of Spring. Well, except for those unfortunate souls in the North and on the East Coast. But, we like to keep things positive on Fall Down Fridays so let’s look ahead to what Spring means. It means breezy days on the porch. It means going for picnics in the park. […]

T.G.I.Fall Down Friday! You know what that means… more dranking and less working. I poached this boozy beach photo from my friend Taylen’s Facebook page. If you have a pic you want us to use, let us know! 2012 Zocker Grüner Veltliner It’s time to rock out with your Zock(ner) out! Crisp and acidic, this […]
Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal. Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it […]
It’s Fall Down Friday and here are three sustainable wines for Valentine’s Day. Organic, biodynamic or SIP Certified, you cannot go wrong. Drink green and get drunk!
Anyway, it’s the weekend and you’ve worked hard. You deserve a drink (or ten). Even if you haven’t worked at all (funemployed?)… that’s no excuse. It’s Friday and it’s time to get your blood alcohol up while you throw your party down.
Wine should be tasty enough to knock your knickers off but not kill the planet in the process. Which is why we love this infographic from the Frei Brothers, puts it all in perspective. Happy drinking!
Now that Holidazed is printed and the e-book is available, I am sorta reminiscing about these past few years. For example, when I met Michelle Branch about two years ago, the thought of having a food blog of my own never really crossed my mind. Or a cookbook, for that matter. Or even more absurdly, being at the same Oscar party as her and her sister just a few months later. But it all happened.
I’m proud to announce that my very first cookbook, Holidazed, is off to the printer! Yes, it’s finally done. Want a copy? Duh, of course you do! Sign up here and you’ll be immediately notified when Holidazed is available for ordering. Simple as that!
I like to push the boundaries of a single ingredient. That was the inspiration for this beet cocktail, to really show just how flexible this tasty (and healthy) root vegetable is. I wanted to celebrate the beet for those that love it and make something really accessible for those that don’t. This does just that.
Using my years of cooking experience along with my unique take on ingredients, sustainability and food, I am going to create the dopest, most awesomest, most unicorn-saving cookbook out there! Oh, and it will include this yummy drink.
Here is the first recipe I completed for the book, a Wine-Poached Pear Martini. This cocktail not only makes your house smell like Christmas, it tastes like it too! Swimming with clove, star anise, orange and more, you are going to want this drink recipe for you holiday party!
It might not seem obvious at first but having good knife skills is really key to cooking. For one, it saves you time, a lot of time. Also, consistent cuts mean consistent cooking. You don’t want half of your carrots under cooked and the rest over cooked, right? Well…here is a little infographic to get […]
Cinco de Mayo is tomorrow and, well, if you are looking for some new recipes to blow your mind…I have a few! From my Guacamole Grilled Cheese to the Avocado Gazpacho, you’re going to love these.

Let’s get this party started! These appetizers are the perfect excuse to drink more cerveza this Cinco de Mayo–not that we need an excuse!
