When making plans to publish our annual holiday cookbook made up of recipes submitted by our readers, we began thinking of how we could make it even more useful and attractive.
We know that many of us are looking forward to the holidays with guarded anticipation. We want to focus in on the real reason for celebration and keep it simple and affordable at the same time. We wanted to be able to help you anticipate the joy of sharing with friends and family without added anxiety. So we came up with SALT… a way to enhance our everyday lives with ideas and features on lifestyle topics that include health and wellness, recipes and cooking, ways to stretch household budgets, holiday traditions and gift giving.
