Cooking Magazines?

My wife and I have subscribed to "Taste of Home's, Quick Cooking" for the last year and have only had a few complaints. The recipes are reasonably simple and quick to prepare for the most part.

Time for renewal has come up and I decided to see what people thought of other cooking magazines that are out there? I don't really have many cooking magazines on my "radar".

Is there anything else out there similar to "quick cooking" that has good recipes for someone who's busy and wants to make most dishes quick and easy with LOTS of flavor and boldness?

Anyone have their own opinions about "quick cooking"? I have a few complaints but we've been fairly consistant in finding at least 6 or 7 recipes in each issue that we've gotten. (things that we like)

I like Fine Cooking, not only for its recipes, but for the articles like - here's a sauce - and here's what you can do with it. A lot of their recipes are simple, and delicious. I've neve had a flop with anything I've made from there.

I think only the UK and Australia have their own versions of it but I get a magazine called 'delicious.', its a great cooking magazine, the best I've seen. Great value for money too.

I'm a subscriber to Fine Cooking as well and absolutly love it. I like how they lay out the recipes. Also how they give you a basic recipe and tell you many different variations you can do with it. I used to subsrcibe to many different cooking mags but after finding FC, that is the only one I subscribe to now. My only complaint is the mags come out bi-monthly, I'd love to have this mag come to my house every month.

I get the CCA magazine, Cooking Pleasures. It is a bit pricy, but well worth it in my opinion.

My favorite cooking mag is Cuisine At Home. I love the layout and I love the fact that there are NO ads. It is similar to Cooks Illustrated, but I like it better than CI. It is not cheap, but it is well worth the money IMO. I find at least one or two (or more) recipes on each issue that I make over and over.

I've enjoyed Cook's Illustrated and Cooking Light. I usually read everything in both magazines - Cook's Illustrated for their wonderful descriptions of technique, and Cooking Light features all kinds of interesting articles on health and nutrition, readers recipes - everything seems useful to me. I let my both of my subscriptions lapse, though, but recently I started checking out a bunch of magazines from the library. I love to sit and relax with a lovely cold glass of Pinot Grigio and just slowly go through them all.

I'm also a big fan of Cuisine at Home so much so I gift my son with his subscription every year. He tells me some of his issues are nearly worn out as they use the recipes all the time. I don't think there's been a single issue (and I have close to 6 years of them) that didn't contain a recipe I loved and a wonderful tip as well!

I used to get Cooking Light but it seemed to me that many of the recipes had many ingredients and were somewhat involved. For me, with limited space (counter and storage) and time, they did not fit my needs. I do get Taste of Home, Quick Cooking, and Light and Tasty and have made recipes from all of them and enjoyed most of the ones I have made.
