Thank you for joining us this month! We're celebrating our first anniversary and the issue is packed with some great presents for everyone who reads it. Our features cover everything from the 1999 International Housewares Show to getting over the winter blues to making quilts to celebrating Valentine's Day. There's something in here for everyone!
As always, we're offering you our wide range of regular columns too. This month, we're introducing a new column called Land of Leftovers. You guessed it -- it's about how to use leftovers effectively without monotony. This month focuses on using the leftovers of a big baked ham. Keep your eyes open for future articles focusing on pot pies, using fruit juices from canned fruit, and many other time, energy, and money-saving ideas.
In addition, Rise 'n Shine offers you a peak into a great weekend with a Sunday Omelette and Phil's International Flair presents the long-awaited Red Tamales. Victoria's Vegetarian Victuals offers a vegetarian tour through the holidays in Febraury and Meet Herb features a great set of charts for herb use (printing directions are included). Rush Hour melts a little of the ice with a Southwestern Chicken Salad and Home Style tackles the challenge of home offices. If you want some advice about how to avoid bronchitis this year, Health & Fitness is where you ought to go. Also, Krafy's Kwickies brings diet and health into perspective. Flavor is king in both Momma Gert's Place (with everything from Chicken Imperial to Chocolate Chiffon Cake) and Happy Endings (with a variety of flavors in Apple Cheesecake Torte). Finally, as if that's not enough, we're asking you all to share your dreams of Valetine's Day in this month's Seasoned Opinions.
On another note, we've upgraded our mailing list software! To find out more about our mailing list, visit our information page. As always, we keep our monthly mailings to a minimum and our list private. Also, every message sent includes a neat recipe, craft idea or health tip as a special thank you for being a patron of Seasoned Cooking.
We hope you all enjoy this special first anniversary issue of Seasoned Cooking. You have our heart-felt thanks for your patronage and support. I guess that's just about all I can say to express my feelings. Except, of course, Happy Valentine's Day and here's to a seasoned lifestyle!
