Have you seen these Everyday Food magazines. Yes, I know they are by Martha Stewart, but really what did she do that so many others haven't done, and just didn't get caught? So regardless of how you feel about Martha, (I personally still like her products and ideas), lets be real, she's good at what she does. Anyway, I have seen these magazines before, but never bought one. One day while garage-sale-ing, I ran across a stack of them, in perfect condition, for .25 cents a piece. I grabbed them all. And they are great! I love them! Of course I love cookbooks anyway, but never do I buy a cookbook that doesn't have photo's for every recipe. I am a visual sort of gal and I need visual inspiration to get me motivated for anything. So when I just see a list of ingredients and no photo to show what it is suppose to look like in the end, forget it---blah, blah, blah... I get bored quickly. But these Everyday Food magazines are great! And the recipes are just what it says, everyday food. Unlike some of Martha's cook books, where everyday people have to take out a loan to buy all the ingredients needed to create one of these extravagant meals, these recipes call for...everyday ingredients. And they include great color photo's and great tips also.
I realize that I don't get out much and since I no longer watch television, my sources of information are limited and some would say that I am sheltered; but... did you know that you can line open ice cream containers with plastic wrap before putting the lid back on and it will prevent freezer burn?
Well, I didn't know this. I learned about it in one of these magazines. Another thing I didn't know was that people actually kept ice cream in their freezer long enough to get freezer burn. For some reason we never have that trouble in our house. We never keep ice cream that long...hum...but if we ever do have that problem, I now know how to solve it!!
So, check out the web site, and next time you are in line at Wal-Mart, pick up one. I am sure that like me you will be pleasantly surprised by them. I am just hoping to run across another stack for 25 cents a piece, instead of the $2.95 they usually cost. Or you could just go to the web site and check out what is online. Either way, happy cooking!
