What one food magazine/recipe magazine do you like to read?

Do you have a subscription to a food magazine or do you just pick one up at the checkout counter when shopping?

Do you make any recipes from the magazine or just like to look at them?

Dd gave me a subscription to one called Good Food. There are about 100 recipes in every issue. They range from simple to chef inspired challenges. I have the latest one sitting here unopened. I hope to get to it in the next day or so. Can't wait to see what is inside.
Check out the cover of the last one.

Doesn't that dessert look yum and it was not hard either.

I do occasionally grab one at the supermarket. The last one was called entertaining. It was divided into themes that worked so well. I did a Tuscan inspired party right out of it.

I really need to finish going through the magazines I have saved here. My rule is if there are at least 4 recipes I like then it is safe from the trash can. Lol. Mind you if there is one brilliant recipe like the key lime tart with berry compote and passionfruit coulis I just have to keep it almost for the picture alone. Lol just realized I have not made it in ages. I should change that. I should not be thinking about dessert...it is way too early!!!

I used to have 5 or 6 subscriptions to different magazines at one time. "Tattoo", "Flash", "Ladies Home Journal", "Readers Digest" and others. Now I don't get any but will sometimes pick up a magazine or two at the checkout.

That is a lot of subscriptions. I am not sure I would even keep up with reading them. It seems every month just comes around so fast with just one subscription. I still have not opened the latest one. Lol. I also think that sometimes you get excited with a new magazine and it can be great for a while then it goes off in another direction and might not be something yu are interested in as much. That happened with a scrapbooking one I eventually cancelled and a simple food one I got for three years. Luckily for that one I can now get it as an application on my iPad and take a peak at the preview before deciding if I want to download it or not...also they price is way cheaper, so for now I am sticking to that. This month I checked and not really interested in back to school lunches so will give it a miss. Years ago I did get Readers Digest, but have not seen it around for a while. Always a lot to read in that.

Hi wren there is a general woman's magazine here kind of like a thick Women's World and I gave up buying it a year or so ago, so many adds in it. Last week I was at the hairdressers and had to wait so flicked through one from before Christmas and in the food section there was at least six recipes I would love to make. Lol guess I will have to look at it more carefully when waiting in the checkout line next time. At least this one was old so I was able to bring it home. I am looking forward to trying some of the ideas.

Speaking of pies, there is a public holiday next week and having a lunch here, so am thinking of making a cherry pie. Can't but the cherry filling here but I got some from the USA food importer, of course for a stupid amount of money, but I love the rich colour of it, sure beats making my own.I might change and do key lime pie with a berry sauce, or if really stuck for time I might use them in a cake. I did see a new tip for a bunt cake that I want to try. Might not be the best to do when visitors here, but it is an excuse to try.lol. Hey let us know what pie you decided on.

Yes that dessert looks very yummy! Nice when someone else gives you a subscription, you don't have to pay for one! I haven't bought any in ages but do get some from mom when she's done with them. Like you she weeds through the stack after a while and just keeps the ones she knows she'll make.

Club crackers into almond cookies? Sounds interesting and if they are lite and easy to make I'd love the recipe. If you get a chance could you share it with us, no hurry, whenever you've got the time.
