Pick of the Week #6



So I know I'm behind on my "picks", but they have not been forgotten. This week, my pick is the Everyday Food magazine. Brian and I were introduced to this magazine when Linda handed over her entire library to us. We have definitely put them to use, many of the magazines have tabs and dog ears. The reason we love this magazine is that the recipes are generally fast, simple, delicious, and the ingredients are not hard to find. They try to use fresh ingredients and in-season produce, but it is easy enough to substitute from the cupboard. We look forward to the monthly feature for wine pairings and seasonings. Even though it's part of Martha Stewart's empire, the recipes are nowhere near as complicated as those in her feature magazine, Martha Stewart Living. We have subscribed for several years and still argue over who gets to read each new issue first.

This week, I am putting the newest issue to work. The foods featured this month are "Comfort Foods." I went to Meijer today and used their pre-made shopping list to purchase ingredients for five exciting meals. I won't give you all the details today, because I want to feature each of them on my blog. Maybe you'll be enticed to purchase this month's issue for yourself!

I love that magazine too! I should really get a subscription. I usually grab one when I'm in line at the grocery store.

Aren't you going to do a Dancing with the Stars post???? :)

Angie,Your project reminds me of a book I read called "Julie & Julia". The author, who is feeling dissatisfied with how her life is going, decides to cook every recipe in Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" . Apparently she blogged about the whole experience also. Linda

I actually watched DWTS this week since you and everyone else I know watches it and I didn't want to be in the dark!
