recipe box Wednesday

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.

Cooking Light April 2012 CoverI 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!


  1. I have the same problem with magazines. I currently subscribe to Cuisine at Home, love it, but they are piling up. :o)

    Might have to go buy a copy of April's Cooking Light. Thanks for the tip.

  2. So if I get Cooking Light, Food Network, Rachael Ray, Saveur, Cook's Country, Bon Appetit, Healthy Cooking, Taste of Home, Clean Eating, Every Day Food, Cook's Illustrated, Eating Well, AND Food & Wine are you saying I HAVE A PROBLEM?? The scary part is that I think I might have forgotten a few...

    1. I think you need a 24 STEP PROGRAM.

      At least I know it is something I inherited...

    2. hahaha! That's great, Heather! I used to get Rachael Ray & Taste of Home, too. :o)

  3. The only magazines I own are the ones you give me, Kristi. And I LOVE them. At least you know where to pass on your old ones to.

    Heather, you are hilarious!

  4. I finally nabbed the April issue today at Target. I will enjoy looking through it tomorrow when my house is quiet. Derrick is leafing through it right now and just said... "Oh, this Hazelnut Crusted Halibut looks good..." :o)


Thanks for stopping by!
