    "On the subject of spinach: divide into little piles. Rearrange again into new piles. After five of six maneuvers, sit back and say you are full."

    -Delia Ephron

Welcome to the May issue of Seasoned Cooking. May is a month in which many ingredients are at their freshest – spinach being among them. So you need look no further than our very own Ingredient SpotLight column to get insight into this nutritional powerhouse and thoughts on how to use it in both its fresh and frozen forms. If some other form of green is on your mind, consider the special pea soup offered in Phil’s International Flair. Knowing that it’s garnished with tangy feta cheese should be enough to convince you that this is no ordinary soup!

Of course, there are many other recipes to enjoy in this month’s issue. If you’re wondering what to do for Mother’s Day this year, consider a picnic chock full of a wide assortment of gourmet dishes that lend themselves to being eaten chilled or at room temperature. Everything from a savory mushroom tart to tangy lemon cookies await you and Mom during your outdoor adventure. And while you’re spending time in the great outdoors, consider your garden options. Think you don’t have the space for a garden? Think again! J. Sinclair has all your bases covered and is even offering a fresh tomato salad recipe to tempt your taste buds. And if you do decide it’s time to put in a garden, you’ll want to consider some edible flowers for your garnishing and nibbling needs. You can get a good guide to what to plant and what to avoid in this month’s Kitchen Focus column.

If you’re looking for some recipes that come together in minutes, this month’s issue is just for you! At the Rush Hour column, you can get a simple recipe featuring fish and pasta. While the recipe presented is fantastic, it’s made even better by offering lots of variations that you can try for making monotony a thing of the past! And in the morning, you’ll want to make sure you have a good breakfast even if it means carrying it in a cup. Smoothies are on the menu at the Rise ‘n Shine column and we’re making sure they are fast, tasty and good for you. On the less good for you, but really tasty menu is an ultra-quick dessert that will have you thinking of dreamy summer days ahead. The Happy Endings column has it all.

There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from your common sense guide to low carb food to a question for you about gifts from your mother. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
