Tuesday's Tribute

Tuesday's Tribute
A Jay and Deb Production.

Over the past few years I have really fallen in love. Its a new love, or maybe just a deeper love. Say what?! Well, I LOVE cooking! So this week's Tribute goes to my favorite recipe source of all time!

My awesome neighbor Staci is the person who turned me on to their magazines and I am forever grateful! I started out with Cook's Illustrated and last year they introduced Cook's Country. I am not exactly sure how they compare as sister magazines/websites - but they are ALL GOOD! The recipes are simple, but pretty much all from scratch - which is what I prefer. And to date (knock on on my head wood) I have never had a bad recipe. In fact, it would be no exaggeration that every recipe has been absolutely, incredibly delicious! I am so in love on their recipes that I even pay the $14.95/year online membership to have digital access any time!

They both take a unique approach in their magazines when publishing a recipe. They describe how they tested the recipe to make it just perfect! So you learn from their mistakes! Another neat feature is that they have a section that does testing/ratings for kitchen equipment and food!

So if you are looking for inspiration and want to bring phenomenal meals to your table or want to learn in a fun fashion - check 'em out! You will not be disappointed! Your friends and family will be in awe at your talent! And well, if you cant swing the $$ ... just stay tuned to my blog! I plan to start sharing mouth watering and tantalizing, tasty recipes on a regular basis!

Wait... I'm sure I should be getting paid for this - shouldn't I?
