Review on Cooking & Such

I must say, when I subscribed to this magazine, I expected it to be good, knowing the editor’s reputation – in producing cookbooks and recipes, BUT was totally shocked by the stunning photography and creative, delicious recipes that were there!! It is more than a magazine, it is a book to be on your coffee table to be perused by all who enter your home. In fact, my daughter’s boyfriend picks it up and studies it every time he sits in the living room! And- to top it off, he realizes that he will get to taste some of these wonderful meals!!

The recipes are not only shown in outstanding photography, but they are easy to make and taste as good as they look. Trust me, I have already made several, and I am not a talented chef, by any means. Sherry has come up with prize winning treats to satisfy every palate. There are scrumptious desserts, main courses, treats and the old favorites- tomato soup and grilled cheese- with a special twist. Fantastic recipes that appeal to those of all ages!

There are articles among the recipes that are written by the Plain People (Amish) that add a special little touch to an already outstanding magazine. They add that personal note that just adds to the attraction.

I can hardly wait for the next magazine to come out. To be honest, this will become one of my most used “cookbooks” that I own. Yahoo, Sherry! You have another winning publication!

I highly recommend that you subscribe to this magazine! All I can say is WOW!

    I borrowed my sister Cindy’s copy, Sherry – and even though she’ll share, she won’t let me keep it. She says Sarah liked Jacinda’s article too much
    So I guess i’ll hope I win a subscription of my own!
    BTW – we’re hoping to see you again this year in Indiana – I think Cindy has the dates, but let us know on FB for sure!!!
