1 – I know I’m not the only person sad that Cafe Johnsonia is closing up shop. She is leaving her blog up for one week only so we can all copy those recipes you might have bookmarked. Recipe index here. Hint: her ice cream recipes are incredible.
2 – Kraft Food and Family Magazine is no Gourmet, and not even on par with Taste of Home, but I’ve still found a few good ideas in there. The best thing about the magazine has been that it is FREE (because it’s all advertising). I was surprised to get a note on my last issue I received a few days ago that this is my last “free” issue, and I can keep receiving it for something like $7 or $8 a year. Not going to happen. Do they think we’re going to pay real money for a “magazine” that is all advertising and includes recipes for grilled cheese sandwiches (and not the fancy variety – we’re talking white bread with American “cheese” here, friends). Curious what you all think about this. Silly, if you ask me.
