Cooking magazines area a great way to find new recipes and learn a little more about cooking. If you are buying magazines at the store, one word of caution. Frequently what looks like an inexpensive magazine is really a fairly expensive thin book. Be sure to check the purchase price as some magazines are a bit more expensive than what you would expect to pay! The magazines listed below are those that I buy or subscribe to. For your convenience I have partnered with Amazon.com, just click on the magazine name if you would like to order a subscription.
Taste of Home
If you're looking for an easy home cooking magazine, this fits this bill. Many of the recipes are submitted by home cooks around the US, and the recipes use common ingredients and easy directions. Many of my tried and true recipes have come from this magazine!
