Featuring lots of recipes, nutritional information, and facts and info on America's favorite food!
Welcome to the October issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month conjures up images of witches on broomsticks and jack 'o lanterns. But just in case you needed a reminder, Victoria's Vegetarian Victuals is taking the opportunity to present more than decorations this month. Pumpkins manage to find their ways into everything from preserves to ice cream in this fun column.
Speaking of fun, October also marks the beginning of a major series of parties. If you are planning on having one of your own, make sure you check out our feature on parties. Packed with great tips and ideas, it's bound to help you plan the event of the season! Of course, if you are just looking for a way to spruce up your home for the seasons, you can get that too. Home Style looks at how color, texture and style combine to give your rooms a decidedly seasonal look.
For some of us, though, October brings an opportunity to relax and enjoy some of the nicer things in life. That's what's happening at Momma Gert's Place this month. Everything from spaghetti sauce to fried fish are on the table. Speaking of fish fries, Phil's International Flair encourages you to enjoy a special menu of fried halibut and tangy basil and tomato salad. If that's not enough to satisfy your cravings for comfort food, check out our feature on tasty fruit muffins. One of these gems is sure to please. Finally, if you feel like there isn't enough time to enjoy some of these treats, you'll have no excuse for avoiding the open-faced sandwich presented in the Rush Hour column.
Before I leave you to tackle the articles in this month's issue, I want to take the opportunity to welcome a new writer to the Seasoned Cooking family. Joie F. Fields will be offering you her ideas and inspirations in various articles focusing on the small kitchen garden. Welcome aboard, Joie!
Whether you're looking for uses for your favorite herbs or interested in adding a new dish to your breakfast table, I>Seasoned Cooking has it in store for you each month. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle!
