rachel ray's mag is on the list but out of the question.

I got Bon Appetit for a year, it was fun to look at the pictures and read some of the articles but I don't think I ever used any of the recipes out of it. everything required some fru-fru ingredients that were either hard to obtain or out of my price range. it was occasionally good for inspiration though.

Rachel Ray is the most annoying person on the planet. Whatever happened to Nigella Lawson? She was fucking awesome.

nigella is on the food network again. sundays. nigella feasts.
yes... nigella is the best!

i've had great success from recipes out of bon appetit. and also from gourmet. i had high hopes for ruth reichl at gourmet, but the re-design after she joined annoys me. i liked its stuck-in-the-50s look. oh well. its the recipes that count.

i like cooks illustrated also.

is bon appetit still owned by american express?

Gourmet. I like Bon Appetit but Gourmet has a great blend of "Hey we are fucking high brow but we refuse to condescend. We'll teach you what all this Italian shit is." Cooks Illustrated is cool but like a damn science textbook and also like a science nerd, a bad know-it-all (i.e. Insists its recipes are THE BEST, but um, they often are most certainly not).

Saveur is amazing and my fave but not on the list. Cooks Country by Cooks Illustrated is good and not so snobby. I will also give props to the recipes in Cooking Light and the little food digest whose name I forget, the Martha Stewart one.

Get the Gourmet Cookbook that came out a couple of years ago edited by Ruth Reichl. It has been awesome.
