"The secret to great grilling is what you do before and after grilling."
Welcome to the July issue of Seasoned Cooking. We're hoping to help you out in your kitchen and beyond this month. We start out our efforts with a look at the secret to great grilling. In a fun summer feature, we focus on the before part of great grilling. Juicy Secrets explores the art of marinating and how it can help everyone from the novice to the grill master.
For those of you wanting the ultimate in hot and spicy grilled foods, check out our article and recipe on Damn Hot Chicken! A word of warning though -- this one's only for those that can stand the heat -- even if you're not in the kitchen. And, if making your own spice blends and rubs is your thing, check out Meet Herb. The themes this month are the spices and blends of southern cooking.
We continue our focus on grilling and eating outdoors with a question directed to you. Seasoned Opinions is asking you about what's on your grill this time of the year. Whether you're opting for traditional burgers and hot dogs or trying an unusual kebab combination or using a strange grilled fruit dessert, we want to hear about it! To accompany the great foods you'll be enjoying outdoors, we'd like to humbly suggest some deviled eggs from Phil's International Flair or a great watermelon salad from Momma Gert's Place. You might even want to enjoy some homemade cookie bars after dinner from Happy Endings.
Before you begin believing that all we have to share this month is from the grill, I'd like to encourage you to visit Rise 'n Shine to get your fill of a heavenly baked French toast smothered in a baked fruit compote of both fresh and dried fruit. While you're enjoying breakfast, take an opportunity to have some orange juice with your meal. Health and Fitness reminds us all that we need at least 8 glasses of water every day. Of course, some of us need even more. Find out if you're one of us!
Speaking of getting enough to drink, why not pour yourself a tall glass of lemonade and find a few things in this month's issue to inspire you. If you find yourself inspired with every page, don't worry! Just pour yourself another glass of lemonade and enjoy. Here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
