This weekend one of my friends made a really amazing spicy thai soup. It contained shredded chicken, rice noodles, curry, ginger, sriracha, and fresh herbs. She mentioned that she found the recipe in the most recent Cooking Light magazine. It got me thinking about the best magazines for recipe and meal ideas.
While I use the Cooking Light website regularly, I had almost forgotten about the actual magazine. The only one I subscribe to is Real Simple, which is FULL of easy, healthy recipes and inspiration. (I also love it for the other topics like organization and random cleaning tips. Who doesn't like Real Simple?)
In the past I have subscribed to Everyday with Rachael Ray and Martha Stewart Living. One was a gift, and the other arrived for free with another magazine we receive monthly so I never actually continued my subscriptions. My mom has received Better Homes and Gardens for years and I've found some excellent recipes in there as well.
I like a magazine that covers recipes, restaurant reviews, tips and tricks, some basic food education...and of course pretty food pictures.
Some others I've heard good things about:
Food and Wine
Food Network Magazine
Readers - what are you favorite magazines for meal and dining inspiration? Do you suscribe to any, and if so, which ones?
