Food magazines, do you subscribe to any?
For a time, I was getting 'Cooking Light', 'Bon Appetit', 'Gourmet 'and 'Cooks', every month.
It was too much, as I cannot toss a magazine (especially a FOOD magazine) until I have thoroughly devoured it and ripped out what I need to have forever.
I have BOXES of things I have ripped out over the years, some organized, some not. I know, I need to toss them, since I have no clue what is even in there anymore. And we do have this wonderful invention, called the INTERNET, that can bring pretty much any recipe I can imagine immediately to my fingertips.
But I don't feel like I have gotten my money's worth unless I have saved something from a magazine.
Is there a 12 step program for that? I see a reality show in my future....perhaps a special segment on 'Hoarders' just for those people with magazine issues. (get it??? I crack myself up...)
'Gourmet' went away, which made me sad but was okay, as there was one less magazine for me to deal with every month. And I do have their ginormous cookbook, so I am probably set. I did let all of my other cooking magazine subscriptions end, and patted myself on the back.
But I was weak one day, there was an UNBELIEVABLE deal on line for 'Cooking Light', I hadn't held one in my hands for a while, and I caved. I now have a two year subscription.
Can I tell you how WONDERFUL the current issue is? If you have been looking for some new things to make as our seasons change, go and get the April issue now. Where to start? The Creamy Spring Pasta? The Hazelnut-Crusted Halibut with Roasted Asparagus? Maybe the Tzatziki Chicken Salad? Definitely the Limoncello Freeze. And the best part is nearly all of these recipes come together in 20 minutes and are healthy.
See what I mean???? Happy cooking!
