How many times have you looked at a salad and thought, "this is totally going to fill me up," only to then be hungry again an hour later? I feel like this happens to me often, and it's giving salads a bad rep in the Well Seasoned household. I like big, hearty, satisfying salads that don't make me dive face first into dessert out of sheer desperation. And that is exactly why I'm referring to...
Disclosure: this post is sponsored by Mutti. All text and opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that help me grow! It's National Macaroni Day! Raise your hand if you knew that was even a thing, cause I sure didn't. When Mutti reached out and asked if I'd be on board to create a recipe to celebrate the occasion, it was a resounding yes. Because, not surprisingly, I'm of the firm belief...
Black bean burgers. We've all had them, and we've all sighed in exasperated disappointment after taking that first bite. These are different. They're epic (not an exaggeration). Like, forget craving beef burgers, you will legit want to make these for the sake of eating them over and over again. Food Advertising by And for what it's worth, beef burgers are high up on my list of foods that I simply would not, could not live without....
Here we are on day 3 of plant-based eating and going strong! I'm sure this is 90% psychological, but I'm energetic, sleeping better, in a great mood, and feel... normal. I'm not sure how else to describe it. And it's partially thanks in part to these avotacos (name credit goes to my highly intelligent, sometimes creative, usually not-at-all-funny husband), of which I've eaten at least 47. They're shockingly filling and deceptively good. Food Advertising by Spoiler alert:...
Before you go running for the hills, let me assure you that this is actually a very simple Thai curry. I'm not just saying that. As long as you have curry paste, you can achieve serious depth of flavor in a short amount of time, even if you're out of garlic, have never heard of ginger paste, and only have 1 fresh herb on deck. Because coconut milk (a must!) plus curry paste equals the best...
Are you there spring? It's me, Ari. I come in peace. Or rather, with a peace offering. If I leave these pear tartlets (pancetta! blue cheese! honey!) on your door step, will you kindly kick winter out? Perhaps I'm looking for an excuse to declutter and purge the house because SPRING CLEANING IS A REAL THING, but beyond that I need warmer weather. Like, stat. And you're the only one who can help. Have I...
This slow roasted pork sugo is what Sunday dinner dreams are made of! It's surprisingly light, but so flavorful. Serve over pasta, polenta, and more! I could tell you how easy this recipe is. That it practically cooks itself, and that it's even better the next day. But instead, you should take this to heart as the only viable reason you need this in your life: all three of my children ate this. Testing. Testing. Do you copy? That...
Sheet pan suppers: versatile, fast, and increasingly popular amongst busy home cooks. Food Advertising by I'll admit I used to scoff at the idea -- throwing everything together on a single tray and letting it do it's thing -- but there is something truly transformative about cooking fruits and veggies in the natural jus of proteins. Olive oil is great and all, but it cannot make peaches taste like this. Fun fact: we keep bread in our...
It's the day after the Super Bowl and all I can think is, "thank god for stretchy pants." I prepared enough food for a small army and in the end we barely made a dent. (Typical.) This was either a testament to our collective self-control or, more likely, a result of everyone in the Well Seasoned house being sick or recovering from... I don't even know what at this point. Call me dramatic, but it...
My gift to you on this cold winter day is a dish so well balanced, so full of depth, that you will never again find yourself asking, "what should I make when we have company?" This recipe is tried and true. Everything from the simple, homey ingredients (it doesn't get more approachable than chicken and mushrooms) to the way you serve it -- straight out of a large pot or dutch oven, family-style on a big,...
