Cooking Magazine — Cuisine at home

no ads.
great pictures.
great recipes.
easy instructions.
q & a.
equipment reviews, etc.

so far, so good.
I subscribed to Cuisine at Home for a long time and loved it. No ads, good articles of information, a "kitchen tips" section that I really liked and great recipes. However, I had a real problem with the fat and calorie content of the recipes. They are very high in fat, cholesterol and calories so I gave it up. It's been about 8 months since I've read this magazine but if you aren't concerned with those problems you'll love the magazine.

agreed... but i simply use different ingredients or adjust the amount of fats, etc. i use in the recipes.

plus, i workout a LOT, so even though the calories are there, i know i'll be using them.

Well I like the beginning instructions that Cooks Illustrated gives. It's their recipes. THey keep experimenting to find the best and easiest way, but it never seems to work for me. It's as if it is customized for their kitchen, and doesn't seem to translate well. They also are finnicky.

They also have questionable taste--mainly in the lack of health (for example almost all of their cookies have sugar instead of the more healthy and better tasting honey).

Another weird taste they have for example is their grand marnier souffle. I use their recipes in general but have to omit and change ingredients. In that case, the souffle, I omit their requested cocoa powder to be used to line the bowls, instead just using regular sugar.

I was not impressed with saveur though when I got an issue. It was too many pictures, advertisements, "look at how wealthy you have to be to eat here" features, and not enough recipes.
