Taste of Home magazine in Food Media & Arts Posted March 3, 2008 I don't get the magazine right now, but have in the past and probably will again when the kids across the street are fund raising next fall ! I like the magazine - I've tried a lot of the recipes and found them fairly good with some tinkering. I am a romantic, so I love the idea of a bunch of regular ladies who love to cook and try recipes and send them in to be published. I like reading about their lives and their mom's best meals. I like that they send in the grace that their family says before meals. I don't really find the language contrived. I think of it as language that these nice ladies speak in and appreciate. TOH recipes seem to have the reputation of cream of crap soup and flavoring packet ingredients, but when you actually read the ingredients in the recipes, many of them don't have prepared/canned ingredients at all. Lots of the recipes call for fresh ingredients. The recipes aren't sophisticated, but many aren't dreck either.
