"That outdoor grilling is a manly pursuit has long been beyond question. If this wasn't firmly understood, you'd never get grown men to put on those aprons with pictures of dancing wienies and things on the front..."

Welcome to the June issue of Seasoned Cooking. With summer officially beginning near the end of the month and unofficially already here, it's time to think about outdoor entertaining. We begin with a look at vegetarian cuisine fit for the grill. Phil's International Flair looks at how vegetables like zucchini and artichokes can find themselves at home on your grill. Of course, the fun doesn't stop there. You'll want to enjoy appetizers and even dessert on the grill as well. A special feature takes a look at using your grill for these favorite nibblers.
Now, if dessert on the grill is a bit too much for you, you might opt to enjoy the spread offered at Victoria's Vegetarian Victuals. A fresh fruit market has inspired her to share her favorite recipes featuring apples and strawberries. And, for the ultimate in early summer sweets, check out the Happy Endings column for a special recipe featuring the season's best rhubarb.
Of course, after all of those sweets, you'll want to make sure that you're active enough to burn those calories. Have you ever thought about the best time to exercise? Mike has and he's sharing his findings with us all in this month's Health & Fitness column. His advice will be useful for Rossana, who's taken on a special challenge for an inspiring cause. Learn about her new focus and how you can help by looking Through the Kitchen Window.
There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from elegant scrambled eggs to lightening quick pulled pork. Before the month fills with soccer games and weekend cookouts, take a moment to relax and take advantage of what we've got in store for you. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
