"What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow."
Welcome to the September issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month, it's likely that many of us will be remembering the events of last year and seeking comfort foods and the company of loved ones. We are working to help with that endeavor by including a wide variety of recipes geared towards that end. And we begin with the ultimate comfort food: potatoes.
We begin with a trip to the Alliston Potato Festival. Through the Kitchen Window author, Rossana Tarantini, got the inspiration for this month's column from that festival and you can get your fill of potato recipes and trivia there. If that's not enough to satisfy you, take a gander at this month's feature article. This Spud's for You offers you a quick and healthy look at two traditional favorites featuring potatoes.
Keeping in line with our traditional foods tour, we'll stop off at the Home Cookin' column for a look at pie crusts and the long-standing feud between butter and lard-based crusts. We offer you two recipes to test and a couple of additional cherry pie recipes to try them with.
Before you help yourself to dessert, though, you should visit the Rush Hour column and help yourself to a taste of an Asian BBQ sauce that's out of this world. We humbly suggest that you try it as a marinade when grilling a beef tenderloin.
Finally, there's little that's more comforting than a hot, homemade breakfast. We're making it from scratch at the Rise 'n Shine column this month with an oven pancake recipe that's simple to make and really shines when it's topped with the season's finest fresh fruit. If you want to pull out your griddle instead, check out our newest column, Kitchen Focus, to get an indepth look at pancakes -- both sweet and savory. What a wonderful way to start a new day. Maybe things are getting better after all!
Well, that's just a smattering of what we've got in store for you this month. So, pull up a chair and fill your plate with all we've got to offer you. And, remember, September is "Be Kind To Editors and Writers Month" -- really! Here's to a seasoned lifestyle!
