"Anyone who eats three meals a day should understand why cookbooks outsell sex books three to one."
- L. M. Boyd
Welcome to the February issue of Seasoned Cooking. In this issue, we're once again offering a set of cookbook reviews. Our selections this time around include:
Classic Home Cooking
Garde Manger: The Art and Craft of the Cold Kitchen
The Recipe Encyclopedia: The Complete Illustrated Guide to Cooking
We hope you'll take a moment to check out these reviews before you take your next trip to the bookstore -- whether real or virtual -- to find some new additions to your cookbook collection.
But, before you go anywhere else, you'll want to see what else Seasoned Cooking has in store for you this month. We start out our issue with the continuation of our flavourings guide and a look at oils and soya. If you've ever wondered how peanut oil and olive oil are different or what soya is, this is an article you won't want to miss. Our theme of flavourings continues with a visit to your breakfast table to spruce up plain old oatmeal in such a way that you can look forward to it as a warm breakfast day after day.
With a good breakfast taken care of, it's time to think about other meals and how you can make a traditionally huge meal for a small crowd and end up ahead -- if you plan carefully and think leftovers! Meals like roasted turkey and corned beef aren't just for the big crowds anymore.
If however, you are looking to tide the appetites of a big crowd, try making the creamy dip featured in Phil's International Flair. It’s bound to please even the most finicky eaters in your home. You won't be hearing any complaints from your family and friends.
Speaking of hearing, how's yours? If you've been hearing ringing in your ears or have a hard time understanding what's going on in the theatre, you might be suffering from permanent hearing damage. And, as you'll find out in Health & Fitness, it's a lot easier to cause hearing loss than you probably imagine. To get the best advice on how to be hearing sweet nothings whispered in your ear for years to come, check this one out.
Before I sign off for the month, I want to take the opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day and President's Day. Enjoy all of the celebrations that February has to offer. Personally, I'm hoping that my month starts out right with Mr. Groundhog hanging out on a cloudy day on February 2, but maybe that's just asking for a miracle! At any rate, we hope that this month's articles will help to make the month a healthy and happy one. Here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
