Light and vibrant weeknight pasta with pancetta and peas gets jazzed up with fresh mint and shiitake mushrooms. The perfect spring or summer pasta recipe, and it cooks up in less than a half hour! The history behind this spring pasta favorite runs deep. It's the dish I first served to my now best friend and her husband when they came over to our home for our first co-family dinner party. I knew my friend's husband was...
Spicy crab pasta with lemon and capers. It's a love letter to seafood and carbs, and also to anyone you deem worthy enough to serve it to. This is the perfect example that simple and unfussy can be both elegant and refined. When I tell you how long it took to make this you won't believe me. Literally comes together in minutes -- don't even try to make the sauce while the pasta is cooking,...
I have been known to scoff at the idea of date night in. I think it's likely because I spend so much of my time cooking, that even when my husband takes the reins, I sometimes just prefer to leave the house entirely. Also, when my husband cooks for me -- it's glorious, he's a wonderful cook! -- there somehow always ends up being a mountain of dishes that need tending to. I'm of the opinion that...
I have been so, so, so excited to share this recipe with you! Say hello to my new favorite condiment: fresh, vibrant, herbaceous chimichurri. I'm calling this now as the sauce of summer, and will for sure be putting it on everything from meats and seafood to grilled veggies. Easier still, drizzle thick, crispy roasted potato wedges with a few generous spoonfuls of chimichurri and never look back. It's liquid gold. Except that it's green. Food Advertising...
Possibly the only thing I adore more than carbs is cheese. It's no surprise, then, that I am head-over-heels, madly in love with crostini topped with, say, whipped ricotta. And if you put a tray of these roasted grape crostini in front of me at a party? Forget it, I won't be leaving the kitchen all night. Food Advertising by Roasting grapes is magical. If you throw a bunch of grapes in the oven...
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...
This deconstructed falafel sandwich couldn't be easier to make! It's essentially smashed raw falafel topped with tangy yogurt sauce, greens, and veggies. It's a quick and healthy lunch recipe you're sure to love! Okay, with all the baked goods I've been shoving in your face (and down our mouths) for the last month, I thought it was time for something lighter. Something a little more... green. This falafel sandwich is a game changer. So much so...
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...
Creamy herbed feta dip. Food Advertising by I've resorted to Italics because I couldn't tell if you were paying attention. Let me be the first to say there is no shame in locking yourself in your bedroom and eating this with a spoon. There is a slight possibility that I'm saying this for my benefit and not yours. For those of you who are more civilized than I, serve it simply with baked pita chips (make...
Earlier in the week I posed the question: what's the one recipe you hope to master in 2018? On the surface it's a simple question. But when I think about the recipes I want to create, I'm left thinking about who I want to serve them to... and for which occasions. Food Advertising by Because honestly as important as the food is, it's only a fraction of what brings us together around the table....
