Welcome to the October issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month brings us a wide variety of fresh produce. From apples to tomatoes to peppers, we're here to help you find great ways to use all of this treasure that Mother Nature is offering!

We begin with a guide to using apples at the Home Cookin' column. Whether you've got tart Granny Smiths or sweet Pink Ladies, there's a recipe for you and your family in store. And if you thought that apples are just for pies, check out Apple Quesadillas or Apple Stir-Fry!

We move on with a little tribute to the last of the season's peaches. The Happy Endings column begins by presenting a simple Cinnamon-Peach Cake that's moist, delicious and even healthy! Rise 'n Shine picks it up from there with some truly delightful Peaches and Cream muffins that are perfect for breakfast, brunch or anytime!

If your tastes run a little more towards the savory side, you'll want to visit Through the Kitchen Window. Rossana recounts her tomato canning adventures and even shares some family-treasured recipes that she's enjoying this time of the year. More tomato recipes abound in this month's feature article that celebrates the gifts of the harvest. Everything from roasted tomatoes to a rich fireside dinner menu are waiting there for you.

If all of this food has you thinking about your health, you might want to take a look at this month's Kitchen Focus. It's devoted to reducing fat in your diet without sacrificing flavor. You'll be glad you did! And while you're thinking about your health, check out the Health & Fitness column for an indepth look at how using aspirin can both help and hurt you. It's information that anyone with heart concerns or periodic aches and pains should have.

Finally, we're asking you to share your thoughts about using tomatoes in Seasoned Opinions. With people everywhere rushing to use and preserve their piles of fresh tomatoes, we're wondering if readers everywhere want to band together to help us come up with new and interesting ways to take advantage of them!

We hope that you enjoy the bounty of great recipes we're offering you this month in Seasoned Cooking. We also hope that you take full advantage of all the fresh flavors that October has to offer us all. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle!
