Magazine Round-Up

I love to read magazines and have been on quite a roll as of late–they’re so easy to pick up and put down,  full of interesting articles, ideas and info. This, of course, being dependent upon reading magazines relevant to your specific interests n all that.

Let me tell you about some neat stuff I’ve read in magazines lately:

*Food Network Magazine- Need I say more?? Yum… The girlie found the recipe for japanese style crispy pork (click for recipe)in the latest issue and–Japanese culture crazy and budding chef that she is–she was gung-ho to give it a go. Oh man, the only complaint we had about that tonkatsu(fried pork cutlet) was that we didn’t double the recipe!  We’ve already made this one a favorite, to say the least.

Great mag, tons of recipes of varying cooking skill levels–almost guaranteed to be something in there that’ll inspire you in your home kitchen, I know it never fails for us.

*Real Simple Magazine The April issue was right in line with what  I’ve come to expect from Real Simple–chock full of good reads, great tips and interesting info. Much of what I enjoyed about this issue is not linked online at this time, so I’ll just say it was a great issue and if you get a chance to pick it up, you’d not likely regret it!

*The Saturday Evening Post-I have recently become smitten with this magazine, I’m sure I’ve mentioned it somewhere along the way. Just love it. The March/April issue had a fantastic article on Norman Rockwell entitled ‘America’s Artist’ that I devoured. Such a great article about an American icon and how some of today’s most renowned creative minds were influenced by Rockwell–creative minds such as George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg. Click the title up there and give the article a  look-see, I think tis well worth your reading time.
