First of all – there are no advertisements! Most important, Cuisine at Home has great recipes with easy to follow instructions, illustrated with very nicely done pictures. I think what I like about all the recipes is that none are too complicated and yet they have a nice twist on some fairly traditional type dishes. Everyone we have made so far is a complete winner!
Each issue will have several dishes for a main dish, sides, appetizers and desserts. You can find complete meals in one issue, or as I do, pull out the notebook I store them all in and pick and choose from different issues! The beginning of each magazine has a “tips and timesavers” sections with reader supplied ideas that are both practical and clever. Readers can submit their favorite tips and, if selected, can win up to $100! Another monthly section is “answers to your questions” and I will admit some of those questions have things I’ve never heard of so I get to learn new things with every issue!
Another favorite attribute of Cuisine at Home is that each issue has a theme like, “quick”, “light”, “festive feasts”, etc. You can also go to their website and order cookbooks based on your interests. Sign up for their email and you’ll get recipes sent to your mailbox!
Here’s a great reason to subscribe – when I renewed this year, they offered a free 1 year subscription to a “friend”. Well, my son loves to cook and he became my “friend” for this great deal. All issues are pre-drilled for a 3 ring binder which makes storage so easy!
Here’s a few of our favorites – so far!
Quick and Healthy Stir Fry
Grape Pickets Skillet With Chicken
Stuffed Flank Steak (we did ours with pizza stuffing)
Boursin Creamed Spinach (works great with broccoli, brussels sprouts and asparagus)
