"Soup puts the heart at ease, calms down the violence of hunger, eliminates the tension of the day, and awakens and refines the appetite."
Happy New Year and welcome to the January issue of Seasoned Cooking. The New Year bring with it an opportunity to enjoy the foods of the season. Nothing seems more appropriate this time of the year than soup. So, we begin our journey with this heavenly dish that often seems able to solve so many of our troubles.
For a look at a creative trio of soups, visit the Kitchen Focus column. From the ultimate in simple Asian-inspired broths to creative bisques with a taste of spring, you’ll find something to tempt your taste buds. If seafood is more to your liking, you’ll want to take a look at the simple, yet elegant recipe presented in the Rush Hour column. Manhattan Clam Chowder can be on your table in no time! Of course, you’ll also want to take advantage of our special feature on making quick and creative bread accompaniments to your favorite soups. They are quick, simple and delicious. And before we move onto another seasonal favorite, we’ll want to hear about your special soup recipes too. Visit the Seasoned Opinions column and share your favorite varieties and recipes.
Another winter favorite is citrus. Once relegated to southern climates, people the world over can enjoy the fresh produce at its peak of perfection. To help you do just that, you can check out the Ingredient SpotLight column. Its focus for January is oranges and, as usual, there are some great recipes to choose for your cooking needs. If dessert is what’s calling to you, you’ll want to visit the Happy Endings column for a dessert that’s creamy, tangy and elegant. Enjoy it with friends and family and keep that holiday cheer going all year long.
Before I leave you to peruse the rest of this month’s issue, I want to take a moment to request that all parents read this month’s Health and Fitness column. It’s about children’s health and is a great guide to what you should and should not be doing for your child’s health. Everything from childhood obesity to getting immunizations is covered and it’s a great way to know where to start.
There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from your guide to tackling clutter to a great and versatile recipe for shrimp fried rice. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
