Taste of Home Magazine/Website?

  • 6

I know it isn't 'gourmet' but is this a magazine worth subscribing to?

Last I looked was years ago so I don't remember much about it.

TY!

      When it first came out years ago, for some bizarre reason I was sent a few complementary issues. It wasn't my cup of tea either.

    2. The magazine is hilarious for the sheer volume of blow in cards alone. Every issue seemed to come with at least a dozen "Subscribe Now!" cards. By the time you ot rid of them and the other subscription and sales pitches packaged with it you didn't really have a lot of content.

      This was true for the copies mailed to existing subscribers, I can't imagine what a newstand copy would be like. I'd be afraid to go to the website, if they follow the same business model it would be pop-up city.

      1. I was given a subscription as a gift once and what I gained by reading that mag is a sense of gratitude that my "home" doesn't taste like that :/

        1. That TOH community is… well don’t hate me for saying this but I feel like they’re all stuck in the 1950’s.

          It’s great if that’s what you’re looking for… putting a jar of salsa and a brick of cream cheese over frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot isn’t my definition of dinner.

          I feel like it’s 1950 suburban housewife food. (please don’t hate that I said that, I don’t mean it in a disparaging manner, different strokes for different folks and from what I can tell, there are MANY a folk who enjoy that kind of cooking.
