What Recipes Are You Tired Of Seeing In Cooking Magazines?

LaPomme | Nov 2, 201012:28 PM     42

I'm about to let my Bon Appetite subscription expire, and I'm thinking of canceling my Food Network Magazine subscription because I'm tired of seeing variations on the same recipe in every issue:

- Flank Steak and some kind of spicy rub
- Sliders
- Salad with fennel
- Panini
- Crab cakes
- Shrimp and noodle salad
- Po Boys or sub sandwiches
- Pizza made with store-bought crust
- Fruit cobbler or crumble
- Pitas stuffed with ______
- Mussels with spicy broth (or mussels with noodles)

It's not that I don't like the above foods. (In fact, I would eat each and every one.) It's that I don't need a new recipe for pizza every month. It's not so hard to throw topings on a store-bought pizza crust, that I need a magazine to tell me how to do it. Ditto for panini: I think I can figure out some things to melt together between two pieces of bread.

What recipes do you seem to see cropping up month after month in cooking magazines?
