"I doubt whether the world holds for anyone a more soul-stirring surprise than the first adventure with ice cream."
- Heywood Campbell Brown
Welcome to the August issue of Seasoned Cooking. August brings us the last days of summer and, with them, some of the warmest days of the year. Seasoned Cooking is here to help you stay cool with great meal ideas and a salute to ice cream!
To give you a special treat, we begin with dessert! In the Happy Endings column, we find a great way to put together specialized ice cream sandwiches for the enjoyment of children everywhere ... from ages of 2 to 92! If you're thinking more about trying your hand at making your own ice cream, make sure you check out our special feature -- We All Scream for ... Ice Cream! -- to get some ideas on making your own custom flavors of ice cream. Who knows, you might find a new favorite? Speaking of favorites, we're also asking you to share yours with the Seasoned Cooking community in this month's Seasoned Opinions column. So come share with us!
Moving on to dinner, we visit the Kitchen Focus column. This month's topic is keeping cool in the kitchen and recipes for everything from crisp salads to crockpot dishes are offered in an effort to keep you from turning on your oven! You'll also want to check out the Rush Hour column for a great panini recipe that will have you out of the kitchen in minutes and enjoying the great outdoors ... with sandwich in hand! If you're more in a party mood, check out Turn Up the Heat for a look at tapas party ideas and recipes that will turn your backyard into a Spanish tapas bar.
There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from a look at the timeless dilemma of diet versus exercise to a look at tomatoes. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
