    Have you seen kraft food and family magazine ( http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/FoodandFamily/). Its probably the best I’ve seen for young families. You can get it delivered free or check it out online!

    I eagerly await the arrival every month of my “Cooking Light” magazine, but I think it fits nicely in both categories, as does my second favorite, A Taste of Home.

    I got Cook’s Illustrated for a year and I saved all of them and I make dishes out of them occasionally. However, they are a little too perfectionistic for me!
    We get a magazine called Relish as an insert with our local paper – it has a nice mix of simple, gourmet, and gee-how-does-that-work.

    I agree with the Taste of Home magazines. I love them. Also my favorite cookbook right now is Savinf Dinner. We are loving the fall recipes.

    Taste of Home has good, reliable, recipes… and they publish a book each year. I usually find an offer for a free subscription to the magazine and ask my mom to buy me the book for Christmas!

    I like southern living. Some the recipes are too rich for my taste, but are always very interesting.

    Cook’s Illustrated, hands down.

    I don’t have a favorite food magazine, I have favorite food blogs, and they are ALLLLLLL about the pictures!!!

    I think Food & Wine offers the best of both worlds. There are plenty of “Forget it! I’ll eat out!” type recipes, but they seem to throw in a lot of do-able ones as well.

    Saveur is fun to read, but for some reason I rarely make the recipe…maybe because I’m picky and I need to sift through a ton of recipes to find recipes that fit my tastes. I just read the Chicago issue cover-to-cover, though.

    Do online recipes count? I dig Simply Recipes. They’re mostly do-able.

    I’m a sucker for any little recipe magazine at the check out stand just waiting to be bought by the impulsive shopper. Really, I’ve found a ton of great recipes in those things. The Betty Crocker ones are my fav.

    I probably should have worded it differently.

    I certainly love the recipes of my “looking” magazines, they just aren’t practical on a day-to-day basis for my audience (the under four set) and budget.

    I disagree with you about there being two kinds of food magazines. My hands down favorite is Saveur, which falls into both categories.
