Favorite Old Magazines

Favorite old cooking magazines At work, our Friends Group is in the midst of organizing our annual book sale, and although we are pretty specific in what types of donations we accept, people don’t always pay attention. We don’t sell magazines, for example, but we still get magazine donations. When that happens, we just put them out for free. Well it was my lucky day because someone had donated a small stack of “Quick Cooking” magazines from the early 2000s! When I saw them on the freebie table in Town Hall I scooped them right up.

I just love old Taste of Home magazines (actually, it is the only magazine I currently subscribe to), and when they published Quick Cooking, it was one that I made sure to pick up in the grocery store. There are so many good recipes in these magazines. I love that they are pretty simple to make and don’t usually require “boutique” ingredients. Don’t get me wrong — I love experimenting in the kitchen — but most days I just want to be able to put something tasty and filling on the dinner table! I am saving this stack to enjoy while relaxing this weekend!

    What a great find!! I love Taste of Home! I used to cook from there when we were newly married and I needed ideas on what to fix. I might splurge and start myself a subscription to this again.

    I used to get those magazines and loved them! Seems like they started out as a different name but I can’t remember what it was. I still have some of those recipes.
