I saw an ad in a Martha Stewart Living magazine for Saveur, which I've never read. It got me thinking about food and cooking magazines from which I've actually prepared a recipe. Before the internet made it all so easy, I subscribed variously to Bon Appetit, Sunset, Gourmet, etal. Lately, I've had MS Living, Southern Living and CI or Cook's Country, by subscription or by hand-me-down. And a few Cooking Light issues.
I made quite a few recipes from Bon Appetit back in the day, but even though I see lots of interesting and tasty looking recipes in the others, I never seem to get back to them to find out which issues had a recipe I liked. My habit now is to plug in the ingredients I have at home into Foodily, Epicurious or allrecipes, and get ideas from there.
Actually, I've made a few from the Penzey's catalog lately! What I wonder is, do you find that one magazine suits your style of cooking better than others, so you actually use those recipes, or are they more for entertaining reading, with some ideas to keep in mind for later?
If you do use the recipes, do you cut them out of the magazine and file them some way so you can find them again?
