    "Do you have a kinder, more adaptable friend in the land than soup? Who soothes you when you are ill? Who refuses to leave you when you are impoverished and stretches its resources to give you a hearty sustenance and cheer? Who warms you in the winter and cools you in the summer? Yet who also is capable of doing honor to your richest table and impressing your most demanding guests? ...Soup does its loyal best, no matter what undignified conditions are imposed upon it. You don't catch steak hanging around when you're poor and sick, do you?"

    - Judith Martin (Miss Manners)

Welcome to the new millennium and the January issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month, we're offering you an issue filled with hints, tips and recipes to make your recovery from the holidays and that persistent cold easier. We start out with a series of recipes that take you from salad to soup in the Land of Leftovers. With all of that heart-warming soup around, you might join Miss Manners in her opinion of soup!

In an effort to encourage everyone to try making soup and other traditional time-intensive comfort foods, we're sharing a review of Kuhn Rikon's Duromatic Duo pressure cooker set. If you think that making roasts and stews means spending hours in front of a stove, think again. The second generation of pressure cookers is here to make that a thing of the past.

January is also a bit famous for sending just about everyone a touch of the cold or flu. But, be careful. That stomach flu might not be the flu at all! Health & Fitness warns that food poisoning has many names. Of course, if you do just have a good old fashioned cold, Victoria's Vegetarian Victuals offers you everything from dumplings to burgers to cure what ails you! Those delightful recipes and a good warm bed.

Speaking of beds, Home Style helps wrap up the issue with some answers to questions like: Where did the sayings "hit the sack" and "tuck yourself into bed" originate? From the ancient past of bedroom lore to the future of nighty-night, it's all about change this month. Hopefully it will be a month -- and a year -- worth cherishing. We hope that these and all of this month's articles will help to make the new year a healthy and happy one. Happy New Year and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
