Happy New Year! Welcome to the January 2009 issue of Seasoned Cooking. The New Year often brings a lot of new changes, new beginning, new flexibility. In that spirit, we are looking to the beginning of our days, as well as our year, and giving a special nod to eggs.

We begin with a look at breakfast casseroles and the flexibility they bring to our mornings. Few other options allow you to put together a complete breakfast in a pan, make it the night ahead and reduce morning fuss to preheating an oven and tossing a baking dish inside. Get a trio of great recipes that will have you appreciating morning comfort food. If you are looking for a creative twist on breakfast, consider looking at the Rise 'n Shine column and the beginning of a great series that revisits great recipes from issues past and remodels them into stunning breakfast food. We begin with an untraditional Eggs Benedict featuring one of our all-time favorite crab cake recipes!

January bring with it a blast of cold weather and many days that seem incredibly quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Warm your nights and protect your pocketbook with a great recipe for Chile Verde from Phil's International Flair -- it's the ultimate in comfort food from south of the border. If you are looking for something with more of an Asian influence, consider the option offered in the Rush Hour column. Packed with tender pork and crunchy broccoli, it's a great end to any day.

Speaking of endings, you might find yourself with an abundance of chocolate chips after the holidays. Have no fear! The Happy Endings column is offering you a great option for all those leftovers. Whip up a batch of simple truffles that are so decadent, you'll almost be embarrassed to admit how easy they were to make. Don't worry -- your secret is safe with us! There is a lot more to be discovered in this issue. Enjoy it and share it with your friends. And don't forget to tell us about what you like and don't like by using our feedback forms in every article. Enjoy the opportunities to spend time with friends and loved ones that this quiet time brings and here's to a seasoned lifestyle.
