Today I received a copy of the new Food Network Magazine November/December issue (1st issue ever) and wanted to share my thoughts and see what everyone else thinks of it. There are 128 recipes in this magazine. I really like the recipe index it has- broken down by catagory such as sides, desserts, meat and poultry, ect. and includes pictures of each recipe. I am excited to try the recipe for mashed potatos with rutabaga and lemon. They look amazing! This issue has recipes from 24 different Food Network celebs varying from Masahura Morimoto to Duff Goldman........sorry for you RR hater's but she was in there. Some of the features in this issue were Thanksgiving sides, holiday gift guides for food lover's, christmas cookies. I enjoyed the On the Road drink section which features great drinks from around the country. I know that ther will be some people that hate this magazine because it has Rachael, Sandra and Guy but it seems that the chef's be varied from issue to issue. There are also some recipes that look great and I like that I don't have to cut pages out of 20 different magazines just to get a few good recipes. This has them all in one place. So what do you guys think of the first issue??
