Roasted vegetable salad of potatoes, brussels sprouts, and crisp haricots verts come together to form the perfect vegan and Whole30 salad with a homemade shallot dressing that will blow you away. I wouldn't say I go out of my way to make meals vegan or gluten free, but when it happens it's definitely an added bonus. Throw in the terms easy, meal prep, and filling and we've got ourselves a winner that will show up again and again on the...
Warm brussels sprouts slaw with rotisserie chicken, bell peppers, carrots radishes, scallions, cilantro, almonds, and an Asian sesame vinaigrette. The perfect meal prepped lunch! I am so head over heels in love with this warm brussels sprouts slaw with asian sesame vinaigrette that I have made it - no joke! - 4x in the last month. Possibly more, I can hardly remember. That's what happens when you have young kids, your memory fades a little...
Did I ever tell you about the first date my husband ever took me on? He brought me to a restaurant by the beach where I promptly ordered a chicken caesar salad and proceeded to eat only half of it. He still makes fun of me to this day for ordering something so lame. Grouper! Shrimp! Salmon! Anything would have been more appropriate than a caesar salad. Alas, I am who I am and that's...
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...
Not once, ever, in 30+ years have I considered myself to be creative. I focused on performing arts during middle and high school, but never pursued it further, I can barely draw a stick figure, and if you ask me to make up a story on the spot I will look at you as if you have two heads. Food Advertising by Somehow, being in a kitchen is different. The ideas are forming faster...
This past week was a frenzied whirlwind which some might call a vacation. Technically, it was. My husband took time off from work, we kept the kids out of school, and ventured down to Florida for a family celebration. We couldn't have asked for better traveling days, and that is really saying something considering we have a 5, almost 4, and 2 year old. That is a lot of kids. Like, you're-outnumbered-as-parents lot of kids. But you...
It was a couple weeks back when my husband sat me down after work and said we needed to talk. The expression on his face, his tone, his demeanor... they all told me that whatever he wanted to discuss, we wouldn't be celebrating with a bottle of bubbly. I thought maybe he needed to cancel a date night. Or wanted to discuss how my grocery budget has gotten out of control. Worse. He entered a...
Guys, we made it to Friday! Personally, I think we deserve warm, fresh-from-the-oven cookies, but those'll have to wait. No time. There's never enough time. My life recently feels as if I'm competing in a triathlon. For anyone who knows me, this is laughable as I don't run, bike, or swim very well at all. But no amount of reading or day dreaming could have prepared me for the ups and downs of building a...
Organized chaos. That's what I see when I look at this photo. Ironically, that's also what I see when I look at my life. Sometimes the pieces fit together in a way that seems unbalanced, but upon looking closer we realize that everything is more or less okay, even when we're hanging off the edge a little bit. Reflecting on the last three months, it's inspiring to see my growth as a photographer (can I...
