Salad Celebrations

Can you really celebrate anything with a salad? You can when it's filled with sweet oranges, crunchy noodles and nuts, and a tangy dressing that will wake your mouth from its winter slumber. We made it to the end of February and the end of snow and ice is just around the corner!

Weeknight Shorts: Creamy Pasta

In about a half hour, you can have a creamy alfredo-like pasta dish that's brimming with sun-dried tomatoes, chicken, and spinach on the table. Just plan a little ahead and get your stirring arm in shape, because this one needs some hands-on time.

Slow Cooker Saves

Slow cookers are known for getting dinner on the table while you are off doing other things and they are great for that. But they can also do a lot more. Get insights on how to use them to bake potatoes, make your favorite snacks, and even help you create gorgeous candles!

An Apple a Day

When dessert is packed with lots of fruit and nuts, does it also count as health food? Either way, this gorgeous bundt cake is sure to be a hit after dinner, with tea in the afternoon, or alongside other goodies at a brunch buffet.

Happy New Year

You need not have elaborate plans in order to give a nod to the Chinese New Year. Take a half hour and blend together the flavors of your favorite egg rolls and enjoy a bowl of soup without the fuss. Then take the time you've saved to learn more about how it's celebrated in China.

Blending Bars for Valentine's Day

If you are having a hard time deciding between chocolate chip cookies or cheesecake for Valentine's Day, consider having both in this blended bar recipe that combines the best of both worlds in a sweet treat you can eat with your hands.

Winter Brightness

Bring a little color into dinner time with a one pan meal that's so orange, it's nearly glowing! Chicken, sweet potatoes, and oranges come together to bring you a gloriously caramelized meal that's bursting with flavor.

Weeknight Shorts: Spicy Soup

Some soups take hours or even days to make just right. Fortunately, some of the most flavorful ones can be made in about a half hour and warm you body and soul. After all, the distance between soul and soup is just a few letters!

More Winter Comfort

Stuffing vegetables is a great way to work additional vitamins, minerals, and fiber into our winter diets. And when you stuff adorable carnival squash with a shepherd's pie inspired filling, you've got comfort food at its best.

Happy Anniversary!

Late last week, Seasoned Cooking turned 20! That's right, this little corner of the Internet has been sharing food wit, wisdom, and recipes for 20 years. To celebrate, last weekend, the old version of the site which was presented in an electronic magazine format instead of the newer blog format got an internal update that has added more 1,700 articles and 2,700 recipes to the existing blog content in Drupal, the software we use to organize and publish this website.

Appliance-Aided Braising

When braising traditionally tough cuts of meat, it used to mean having a pot on the stove for hours and no way to leave it unattended. Now, with a crockpot or instantpot, you can have Korean Beef Short Ribs any day of the week without a lot of work.
