Why Don’t Home-Cooked Meals Measure Up?

Have you ever wondered why your homemade dishes sometimes fall short of that restaurant magic? Here are a few reasons why:


Restaurants aren’t concerned about how rich their dishes are; they’re focused on creating delicious, crave-able dishes! That often means liberally using butter to add that extra richness to a pasta dish or perfectly basting a chicken breast. At Seasoned and Salted, we embrace the joy of butter for the best-tasting recipes at home.


Salt is the hero of your kitchen, and restaurants aren’t shy about using it generously. Your sister-in-law’s “meh” dish from last week might be missing that magic touch because she’s a bit too cautious with the salt shaker. Seasoning generously is the key to elevating your home-cooked meals

Quality of Ingredients

Ever considered the impact of ingredient quality on your dish? Restaurants spare no expense in selecting top-notch ingredients, and you shouldn’t either. From the double-concentrated tomato in a tube to the choice of fresh eggs and butter, it’s about knowing when to splurge and when to save wisely. Let’s focus on flavor boosters and star ingredients to make every meal memorable.

Crafted with Precision

Every recipe on Seasoned and Salted undergoes a meticulous creation process. They are well-researched, tested numerous times, and refined to ensure they meet the standards of restaurant quality. I believe in bringing that level of precision to your home kitchen.

Join me on this flavorful journey, where each recipe is a story, and every dish is an invitation to create culinary memories at home. So, grab a glass of wine and let’s cook!
