|A scan of my December/January 1996 Taste of Home|
This year I apparently have been busy as the seasons have changed. I got out my August/September issues and that was it.
Yesterday I went hunting for a squash recipe I wanted to try for Christmas dinner. I found, surprisingly, that I had not gotten out my Christmas Taste of Homes (or, for that matter, the October/November ones). I did so, then and there, and quickly located the recipe I had in mind. It was delicious, too, and I will share the link on my other blog.
As I browsed through the stack of issues, I decided I would leave these out for awhile and go through them slowly to enjoy them again. It struck me how beautiful the covers were on those older issues, how they just invited a person to open the magazine and be inspired by the recipes and even the decorating ideas to be gleaned from the photos. Sort of like the Ideals of cooking magazines. I was reminded of how eagerly I awaited my December/January issues and how I could hardly wait to open them and see all the great ideas people had shared for Christmas cooking and baking. I thought I would share a few of these lovely covers with you. I would imagine the back issues may be found for sale online somewhere.
