Welcome to the April issue of Seasoned Cooking. Spring has sprung and that means our menus are featuring fresh produce and lighter themes. To begin, we take a new look at sushi and how it’s made. At Phil’s International Flair, you can get a complete illustrated guide for many traditional sushi favorites and a few we’re pretty sure you’ve never heard of before! If you’ve avoided it because you think it’s too difficult or the thought of raw fish is too much for you, you’ll want to check out this article.

Moving on, we take a look at some seasonal ingredients that you’ll want to take full advantage of during this month of warmer weather and those famous April showers. First, in the Ingredient SpotLight, we’re taking a look at asparagus. At its peak of flavor, now is the time to enjoy this versatile vegetable. Roasted, steamed, stir-fried and more … asparagus is a seasonal star that’s ripe for use in your kitchen. If your thoughts are running more towards what to do with all those leftover Easter eggs, never fear! This month’s special feature on Using Easter Eggs gives you lots of ideas and even a fiery hot recipe for an all-time favorite appetizer, devilled eggs.

If you’re dreading a busy Easter weekend with hours and hours of cooking, you might want to check out some of the unique ideas offered in our feature on Getting Creative with Easter. It shows how you can present an elegant and delicious Easter feast that is loyal to springtime themes without requiring you to spend a day in the kitchen. What more could you ask for?

Did you say dessert? Well, you’re in luck! In addition to the recipe offered in the feature, there’s another spring-inspired dessert being offered in the Happy Endings column. Featuring pineapple and a selection of ingredients that are often on hand, it’s the perfect light end to a meal. What’s better is that it’s quick and easy to prepare.

There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from a fun, fact-filled health & fitness quiz to a great recipe for All-Day Mediterranean Chicken Stew that takes advantage of your slow cooker. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
