I don't subscribe to Cooks Illustrated, but then again I don't subscribe to any magazines. They usually don't catch up with us in our travels. I do pick them up at Barnes and Noble every other month and I've got every issue since 2000, They are quite good at what they do, but the ultimate authority is you and whether their profile fits your tastes. I love their Blueberry Cobbler recipe ( "The Best New Recipe" cookbook) but I cut back on the lemon zest because it was too tart for us.

I always miss the show, but have subscribed to the magazine for at least 10 years - I love it. I can't remember ever having a recipe from there turn out badly. Rather than hang on to the magazines, though, I have a subscription to the Web site, so I can search for recipes as I want them.

I love the show and the magazine. I love it too when they test the different cooking appliances and gadgets. That's how I found out what kind of waffle iron I wanted.

How do you think ATK stacks up against Consumer Reports on appliances, etc?......Do they differ in their opinions? I've never seen/read ATK reviews, so I'm curiouos....

Thank you....My daughter was here today, and hinted at a waffle iron for Christmas.
