"The wonderful world of home appliances now makes it possible to cook indoors with charcoal and outdoors with gas."
- Bill Vaughan
Welcome to the June issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month, we're going on a truly novel culinary adventure. In addition to the joys of grilling outdoors -- with gas or charcoal -- we're visiting the world of the Texas BBQ, which to many folks might mean more outdoor grilling. However, one of the many things you'll learn in this fun feature is that BBQ is an art form that involves so much more than grilling! You'll also find some great recipes to get you hooked on the passion of Texans.
For those of you looking to put dinner on the table, there's a lot in store for you. First, we visit the Rush Hour column for a look at grilling the perfect piece of tender, juicy chicken. And, with a little time invested in the morning, you can have dinner ready in less than a half an hour! If you'd rather keep your poultry in the kitchen, Phil's International Flair does just that with a look at oven bags and how they can help you achieve superior results. If you've ever wondered how these new gadgets work, this article is for you. If you're just looking for something simple and elegant to share with your significant other, then look no further than Momma Gert's Place. This month marks the end of a series on recipes for couples and it goes out with a bang with a delightful Cornish hen recipe with a cranberry-orange sauce.
Speaking of berries, we're using some of the freshest berries in a couple of this month's articles. First, a feature takes a look at making berry sauces and syrups from the season's best berries. Your dessert table will thank you for reading this one! Speaking of dessert, our second berry focus comes in the form of a truly fantastic strawberry-rhubarb pie in Happy Endings. It takes two seasonal stars and pairs them with all that is good in life and dares you to top it all off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This one's definitely a keeper!
Finally, in response to all of the questions we've been getting about low carb diets and the like, Health & Fitness tackles the facts about these diets. It covers the basic diet theories and how they affect the human body -- in both the short and long terms. If you read only one article this month, make it this one. There has been a lot said about these diets and the facts are seldom seen or even discussed. It could change the way you think about how you eat, exercise and live.
Speaking of living, take some time this month to enjoy it. Forgo those overtime hours to spend an afternoon at the softball diamond with your family, set aside some chores for just a bit to slip some lemonade in the shade of your favorite oak tree or just spend some extra time with family and friends doing what it is you love. Here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
