Then as it was, then again it will be
An' though the course may change sometimes
Rivers always reach the sea

Thanks for a wee bit of Jimmy Page there, BuckyTom! I've got that album (this was the title cut, "Ten Years Gone", wasn't it?) somewhere in the closet, too.

I don't remember that movie. Hmm... Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, what a duo. What a band!

We awakened to a real frisky morning here in these parts and I had the joy of driving the #1 Son into work. I quietly popped in Little Miss Happy to sing "Isn't It Ironic" at the top of our hearing level with the windows down and the top back. GREAT way to wake up a late sleeper....

:twisted:

Gourmet and Saveur. I agree with some of the negative comments about Gourmet ... most of the time. I'll be tempted to give up the subscription, then I'll get an issue I love and read cover-to-cover. I know i'd just wind up picking copies off the rack now & then anyway. As a general rule, if you do that a half dozen times a year you could have the subscription for the same price. I probably have 25 years worth on my shelf, and I organize them by month, so that when holidays come I can pull out a stack of Novembers for holiday ideas. I don't think I've ever cooked from Saveur, just love reading about how food is done in different and exotic places.

I used to subscribe to Gourmet, Bon Appetite, and something else I don't remember. But, as the prices went up and the cooking content went down I lost interest. If I'm standing in line at the grocery store and see something that catches my eye I might buy one ... but that is only once or twice a year.

I have just this year been introduced to Cook's Illustrated - got a couple of free issues in the mail - and my PBS station now carries America's Test Kitchen. I just mailed in my subscription a couple of days ago. I like their equipment reviews and I like the fact that they get into the science of cooking - the hows and whys of things instead of just a recipe. Kind of the same reason I like Alton Brown.

It's probably akin to the old proverb, "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day - teach him to fish and he will eat for a lifetime." Teach me the science and tecnhiques - and I can cook far more than just one recipe.

buckytom, ATK is carried by two PBS stations in my area. It's on at 11:30 and noon on Saturdays. It's my favorite cooking show.

I have Taste of Home's Quick Cooking and Cusine at Home. Received a freebie from Kraft and Cooks Illustrated. I liked the Cooks Illustrated...Wasn't too impressed with Kraft. Maybe it was the advertising. I really like Cusine at Home.

I don't like the Kraft magazine either, they could stop sending it to me as far as I'm concerned. I never like the recipes and it seems all of them use two or three Kraft products that I don't happen to have on hand.
