I'm A Sucker!

For all these cookbook magazines they sell at every checkout!! I know they put them there just for people like me who can't resist looking at pretty pictures of food and new recipes! It seems every year the books get better and better. I do find some recipes in some of them, others I put aside to look for recipes "sometime" for something new. You can see the "Soups" one has lots of papers in it, I really liked this one and found quite a few good recipes.
Any other cookbook magazine suckers out there?

  1. Holy Moly you've got yourself an addiction going....hee hee just kidding.

    I just subscribed to one called Food. Yes...because of all the pretty pictures.

    I want to get my recipes in order.

  3. i am so a food magazine sucker. i love looking at all the pictures of food free from drips. spills. dirty kitchens. etc.
    in fact it is so funny you posted this today because this morning i woke up really early before my hubby left. then crawled back in bed with 4 food magazines. the screwtape letters and my magnificat. i really shoulda been praying. but instead i laid there thinking about mashed potates with a hint of nutmeg and thyme. and a salad with carmelized walnuts and balsamic vinegar.
    my mouth watering....like it is now. again.

  4. Ha! You already know I'm a food magazine addict!! The one thing I have noticed about the BHG Christmas Cookie magazines is that they do tend to reuse the same cookie recipes, but just update the decorations or shape. I still fall for it, though, and already bought the 2009 BHG Christmas Cookie magazine.

    Food is a big part of our lives ... it adds spice and is an inexpensive change to the norm.

  5. It's funny that you posted this, because I was thinking of doing the same thing, Jamie, in a future post! I am totally a food magazine sucker, too, especially during November and December with all the festive holiday recipes. I don't buy as many during the rest of the year ... I like looking at the decorating, too, to get inspired. I've already purchased Rachel Ray, BHG, Real Simple, Weight Watchers (because I do TRY to cook healthy), and that's only November! LOL—Laugh Out Loud! =)

  6. Oh yes!!! I should take a picture of my shelf! I'm considered a "hoarder" of cooking magazines and cookbooks! I love them!
    I'm also a lover of catalogs! I rarely order from them, but I love looking at them!

  7. I used to be a collector of decorating magazines...having to do with country decorating. Now as I get older...I have gravitated to the food magazines. I can't throw one away. I had one in my hands just yesterday...it cost about $10By the time I got to the checkout I thought...do I really need this? No,and put it back. I am still thinking about it though.You girls are much younger that I am...and I thought it was old age.

  8. Huge sucker here! :) I actually had my in-laws get me a subscription to the little Pillsbury one and the other one (can't even remember which one) because I would end up buying so many that I was wasting money. Now I can't get subscriptions here and they don't have little cooking magazines- in English anyway- and I am in withdrawal!!! So, I really enjoyed seeing your photo of all of your little magazines. :)

  9. Pop! That was the sound of my arm popping out of my shoulder to raise my hand! Yes! I'm horrible when passing by food magazine at the grocery store. I have way too many. And I have a whole category in my Amazon Wish List for just cookbooks.
    Kind of ironic that I have no idea what to make for supper tonight, isn't it?

  10. Okay Jaime, I wrote a post on my blog from my heart. I can't wait to hear the thoughts of my favorite blogger about my post! I will be looking forward to hearing from you when you have a chance to come and look! My new post is about my favorite subject - the Blessed Mother and the Rosary!! I know she is very special to you too, which makes us spiritual sisters right? :)

    P.S. I ordered a bunch of copies of the 54 day rosary novena booklet and guess who I will be sending one first? Yes -YOU!! I am giving them out in thanksgiving for all the graces, gifts, and blessings I have already received from God through the Blessed Mother and her rosary!! :)

    You're in my thoughts and prayers!!

    my email is: prayrosary4life@aol.com

    Love,
    Maria Therese :)

  13. If they could get a recipe all on one page I would spring for these more often. Better yet, perforated recipe cards.

    I do like recipes from Real Simple and recently bought a Real Simple cookbook off the magazine rack. It was, like, $13 but at least the format was one recipe and one photo per spread.

    I magazine recipes I do have are in the process of being typed up and added to a seasonal favorites 3 ring binder. Hence my new "Friday Fall Favorites" posts.
