Seasonal Recipes

With every season, there are foods we love -- recipes that capitalize on fresh ingredients and in-season flavors. Start the year with cozy soups, chilies, casseroles, or warm chicken dishes. Cold winter months are excellent for baking. So put the oven to work with our fabulous pie recipes, chocolate treats, and, of course, our low-calorie desserts for anyone with New Year's resolutions. When the thaw of spring arrives, sample the recipes in our spring buffets, Easter celebration ideas, and spring dessert collections. Full of in-season ingredients -- such as peas, asparagus, berries, and refreshing citrus -- spring flavors are light and fresh. In the summer, produce is abundant and the grill is the appliance of choice. We've got recipes for salads, barbecue, kabobs, picnic fare, sangria, frozen desserts, and even grilled desserts that all use summer produce. As summer wraps, put our instructions for canning and pickling to work so you can enjoy your summer bounty year-round. Finally, as crisp autumn months roll in and the holidays approach, turn back to warming comfort food. Casseroles, fall-fruit cobblers, and slow cooker meals -- we've got delicious ideas for every day of the season.
