Foodie Freebie Friday: Cooking & Food Mag Subscription!

Happy Monday to you all! After unpacking my collection of magazine subscriptions, I had the daunting task of ensuring all the subscriptions have my updated address (even though an address change has been submitted to the USPS). I have a handful of subscriptions which are all cooking related: Cook's Illustrated, Cooking Light, Taste of Home, Today's Diet & Nutrition, Clean Eating, Saveur, Food Magazine... and there are a few more I'd like to subscribe to! (It's almost like an addiction...)

  2. I would choose the taste of home magazine, it never fails I pick it up everytime I am at the supermarket be nice to get it delivered.

  3. Wow, it's hard to choose just one. The cake decorating one really catches my eye, because I'd love to learn, but I haven't quite managed the inspiration yet. On the other hand, I've been hearing really great things about Fine Cooking too.

  4. Such a tough decision! I think Chili sounds interesting but Cook's Illustrated has always come very highly recommended by the WC gals.

    It would be a toss up!

  5. I like the Food and Wine magazine because I would love to read the pairings of good food and wine! I

  6. I'd probably pick Cook's Illustrated, becasue I still have some learning to do in the kitchen. But my close second choice would be Cooking Light. I'm always drawn to recipes I see posted from CL.

  7. It would be a toss up between Cooking Light and Clean Eating for me, as we are trying to eat healthier.

  8. Totally Chocolatier! My mom used to subscribe to it when I was a little kid and that is how I taught myself most of my desserting, and would love to get back into chocolatiering again. They always have the most beautiful food and I love that not everything is easy. And who doesn't love chocolate??

  10. I love Chocolatier. It's absolute food porn! I think the recipes are more challenging and really push me to try new things.

  11. Oh man, what a tough decision! I used to get Vegetarian Times & Cooks Country, so I'd probably pick one of those. But the Clean Eating looks interesting too!

  12. I would love cooks illustrated because it gives you so much knowledge beyond the recipes!

  13. I would choose either the Rachael Ray magazine or Cooking Light. I like that Rachael has a little bit of everything in her magazine!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd love to get Everyday Food or Everyday with Rachael Ray! Great giveaway!!

  15. It would be Taste of Home. I can sit for hours with a good cup of coffe and just read and read.

  16. Definitely BREW magazine. The hubby and I recently started experimenting with homebrewing. It combines his interest in beer and my interest in cooking- the perfect shared hobby!

  17. It's so hard to choose, but I think I would choose Food and Wine for the inspiration it would give me.

  18. American baker...mainly because I never knew it existed but it looks great!

  19. We subscribe to Vegetarian Times, and love the simplicity of the recipes; I would say 95% of the ingredients are readily found in any market, which is a definite plus! I'd love to subscribe to Clean Eating - we pick it up whenever we can find it, but it'd be so much better (and easier!) to not have to bother searching it out.

  20. I would love Cooking Light or Taste of Home!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love a subscription to Cake Decorating Magazine. I am still fairly new to cake decorating, but I think I have a natural talent for it, and I love doing it. I think I would get a lot of inspiration and tips from a magazine like that!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It would be a toss-up between Taste of Home and the Cook's Illustrated/Cook's Country magazine.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cook's Illustrated. I love watching their America's Test Kitchen show. Between the recipes and reviews, I always learn something new when I read it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'd love a subscription to Clean Eating ... I picked it up the other day and LOVE the recipes in there!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I already subscribe to Cooks Illustrated and Cooking Light, so I think I would go with Everyday Food. Although Clean Eating looks interesting as well.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Definetly Clean Eating. It is what we are about.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cooking Light for sure! I have a huge list of recipe links from their website and keep eying up the magazine in the store. I am trying to eat healthier and love the options they offer. I love that their recipes tend to be easy and quick and so far, I have yet to have one we didn't like!

  28. I think I would most enjoy Light and Tasty...but now I'm thinking a lot of these look like great subscriptions!!

  29. Cooking Light - I keep meaning to subscribe, but have never gotten around to it!

  30. I would probably be nice to the hubby and choose either Chili or Brew. He loves spicy foods, and the couple of times I've picked up Chili for him and B&N he's enjoyed it. And he also just bought a bunch of home brew stuff off Craig's List, it's something he's wanted to try for a long time now, so Brew might be handy. I'd probably let him take his pick between the two.

  31. Everyday Food has always looked interesting.

  32. I have the subscription to Cooks Illustrated magazine. I selected the magazine since it provided recipes,methodology, the trial and error and product/ingredient reviews with the criteria used. I would love to get a subscription to Bon Appetit or Foodnetwork. Currently my mother in law gives me her back issues of Bon Appetit.

  33. I would probably choose Clean Eating since that is one of the few that I do not subscribe too. I have seen them at the checkout aisle and love this magazine. Gracious, I love cooking magazines. Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. I would love a subscription to Brew. Hubby and my brother have recently started home brewing together, and it's so interesting. It would be fun to read up and share ideas with them from that magazine.

    ReplyDelete
  35. My husband bought me a subscription to Everyday Rachel Ray for the holidays after seeing me speed read it in the grocery aisle for months! I love getting it monthly!

    If I were to get another one, I would love to have Vegetarian Times. We cook only vegetarian in our house, and I would love to ry new things. The downside to cookbooks and magazines is so many of the recipes I have to figure out how to adapt before I can make them. I would love a mag where I could cook every dish!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have always wanted to subscribed to Cook's Illustrated because it offers not only wonderful, classic recipes but is also an excellent reference for tools, techniques and ingredients. I have plenty of cookbooks, other magazines and the web for recipes - this magazine would provide me with the nitty-gritty of cooking information!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow! What a difficult decision! I LOVE cooking magazines & enjoy going through them to find new ideas! I really enjoy the Taste of Home magazine because they have such wide selection of recipes to choose from. I enjoy trying new & different things as well as new twists on "traditional stand-by" recipes.

  38. I'd choose Cook's Illustrated since it comes so highly recommended by the WC girls. I have Every Day Food, and I like how the recipes seem easy to make.

  39. What a hard choice! I'd have to go with Vegetarian Times: it's an excellent mag and I'd have to do the least amount of recipe adaption.

  40. I would love for a subscription to Food and Wine magazine -- my subscription was up about a month or two ago, and I just haven't gotten around to renewing -- but it has great articles, wonderful pictures and for a girl who loves wine just as much as a good dinner, it's perfect! :)

  41. I'm interested in Clean Eating magazine. I've had subscriptions to Food & Wine, Gourmet and Saveur in the past but lately I just pick up an issue when it interests me instead of subscribing. Food & Wine has been my favorite. There are always recipes in it I want to try.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think I'd go with Taste of Home -- my mom used to get that magazine, and they always had delicious recipes in them!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd have to say Cook's Illustrated since it is so highly recommended and I know I have a thing or two (ok more than that) to learn. I currently have Cooking Light and Clean Eating and do enjoy getting new issues of those.

  44. It would be a toss up between Brew and American Cake Decorating! Odd combo but my husband and his dad are homebrewers and I've started to pay more attention to when they are brewing and am finding i enjoy it. Then I'm in love with cake decorating since my classes--I'd love to have a mag that gives me more inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  45. There are about 5 that I would love, but my first pick would have to be Cook's Illustrated. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the magazine and books from the girls on the WC Nest board. I think it would be a great addition to my magazines. I also like it b/c it is almost like a little cookbook. I usually hold onto a lot of my cooking magazines (which I should probably clean out) and I wouldn't feel so silly holding onto the Cook's Illustrated since it is more than just a magazine.

  46. I would lov a subscription to Food and Wine magazine. The husband and I love to pair our dinners with wine and we love to cook with it, too!

  47. I would have to say the American Cake Decorating because I need inspiration to bake and decorate cakes!! ;-)
