You can’t go wrong when the kids ask for Ariel’s recipes instead of carryout.– Takisha R, Hyattsville, MD
Seasonal, worldly, and comforting. Family food that you can feel good about.
All recipes are approved by my own kids. I’ll work with you to create meals that work for you and your kids, ’cause ain’t nobody got time for kid-only meals.
We started with the curry last night. My daughter, who hates red sauce on pizza because it’s “spicy,” tried it, said she liked it, and this morning asked if she could have more tonight.
And we all ate the same dinner at the same time. This sounds simplistic but of course it’s really a meaningful milestone for our family.– Anna B, Petworth, DC
