"Everyone learned to cook without any experience."
Welcome to the March issue of Seasoned Cooking. In this issue, we're hoping to share some of our experiences with both the novice and the experienced home chef. We start out with a primer on organizing your kitchen to work for you. With centers devoted to everything from beverage making to wok cooking, you're sure to get a few ideas about how to help yourself save time and effort while you cook. To help you along with the time and effort-saving, we're also offering a fun gadget guide to show off some of the nifty kitchen tools that are available to us all to help make cooking fun and fast.
With all these great tips and tools to help out in the kitchen, you'll definitely want to spend a little more time in this favorite room this month. We're here to inspire and keep you company! We begin by continuing our flavourings guide with a look at some wonderful sauces and sweeteners. If you've ever wondered how to use molasses or where Tabasco gets its heat, this is an article you won't want to miss. You'll want to take what you've learned about sweeteners to the breakfast nook and enjoy a delightful baked apples recipe for your next lazy Sunday morning. Featuring the best fresh and dried fruit, this is one recipe that's sure to become a family favorite. If you want to enjoy a rich cup of joe with that fruity delight, make sure you check out the article on French presses. These elegant hand-driven coffee brewers are making a comeback and present a unique opportunity to control the taste and body of your favorite morning beverage.
With a good breakfast in the bank, you'll want to move onto other priorities. But, before you do, ask yourself if work is working you too much lately. Find out if you are hurting yourself at the office by taking a close look at this month's Health & Fitness column. You'll be surprised to find out that it's not a question of how much you work, but what it does to you. Another article devoted to reducing tension can be located in the Land of Leftovers. Save yourself time, energy and cash by making your own frozen food. Speaking of saving time, the Rush Hour column continues its focus on microwaving by taking on the ultimate weekday challenge: making delicious meatloaf in less than 15 minutes. Yes, it can be done and we're telling all!
If you're looking for something to celebrate this month, we've got all the bases covered there too. First enjoy a batch of fun-filled Spider Brownies to celebrate Chocolate Week -- yup, that's in March, but you'll have to read the article to find out when! Another famous March holiday falls on the 17th and Victoria's Vegetarian Victuals takes a historical visit to Ireland and presents a sackful of potato recipes to enjoy on St. Patrick's Day. Finally, a special birthday memorial for the namesake of Momma Gert's Place is set out -- complete with Chicken-Fried Steak and Waldorf Salad. All in all, it's more than enough to keep you celebrating all month long!
Enjoy all the warmer weather that March promises to bring our way and enjoy any unexpected snowfalls too. After all, it won't be too much longer and we'll all be rushing to hide out in air-conditioned rooms! Promise me one thing, if you get some more of that white stuff, you'll build a snowman for me! Then, some in out of the cold and enjoy one of the many great recipes in this issue of Seasoned Cooking. Here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
