I just did some Internet "shopping" and discovered a 1-year subscription for $15 at Books a Million's website. I followed that up with a phone call to my area BAM store and was told that a single issue in the store is about $8 or $9. Whoa!

I'm going to flip through an issue the next time I'm in the bookstore to see if I might want to subscribe.

I subscribe to it and I am 'eh' about it. While I do look forward to it coming, I am not super impressed with the amount of home cook recipes. Lots of fancy stuff. I like the inserts with 50 recipes. This month it was 50 recipes for summer drinks. A few months ago it was 50 recipes for toast appetizers. My biggets gripe is that it doesn't come the same time every month. It's not bi-monthly either.....if that makes sense? You get ten subscriptions a year in no particular order. Irritates me because I never know when it's going to get here. I got my March/April issue at the end of March so all of the st. patricks day recipes were worthless. :(

It sounds like it is about as reliable as their web site. It loads too slow for my taste (I have cable modem).

I picked up a copy to check it out, wasn't super impressed, not enough to want a subscription. Much preferred Paula Deen's magazine. It just wasn't for me.
