”There is nothing like soup. It is by nature eccentric: no two are ever alike, unless of course you get your soup in a can.”
-Laurie Colwin, author of Home Cooking (1988)
Happy New Year! Welcome to the January issue of Seasoned Cooking. This month, we spend a lot of time repenting for sins committed over the holidays, hunkering down for a long winter, and enjoying the small comforts of life, like a good bowl of soup. Part of our nature wants to find new and unusual foods to tantalize our taste buds. Another part wants good basic comfort food. We are hoping to cater to both of them this month!
We begin with a couple special recipes that will have you feeling like you are traveling the world! We begin with the Rise ‘n Shine column and a recipe for coconut pancakes. Packed with two kinds of coconut, these sweet, nutty breakfast treats are perfect when paired with fresh tropical fruit and a hot cup of -- you guessed it -- Hawaiian coffee! For your evening pleasure, you might want to consider a special recipe from Phil’s International Flair. Pressed duck is a special dish that’s sure to have you dreaming a beautiful Asian getaway.
Of course, there’s a lot to be said for good old fashioned comfort food as well. And nothing says comfort like soup. Get the basics of soup and some hints and tips on making yours even better with a fun feature article on everything soup. If stew is more to your liking, try looking at Simon’s Simple Stew for the ultimate in comfort food. And nothing says hibernating for the winter than a bowl of steaming chili – so get one that’s top notch and easy to make in the Rush Hour column. You get a great meal and your slow cooker does most of the work for you! Finally, end that great dinner with a slice of bundt cake that’s brimming with bananas and chocolate chips. Get that one at the Happy Endings column. Maybe winter isn’t so bad after all!
There's a lot more to enjoy in this month's issue of Seasoned Cooking -- from a look at winter traditions to a focus on oatmeal and how it can be part of a healthy lifestyle. Enjoy and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
