My new toy finally arrived from Dell yesterday…A 17″ laptop with some bells and whistles to make photo editing easier. I planned to post the first blog this morning. I got a little sidetracked with a phone call from a high school buddy making arrangements for the 35th reunion this weekend. What with playing catch-up with what’s been going on in the last few months the time ran away from me.
I had been formulating a quick post about Cook’s Illustrated Magazine…So you all will get the condensed version this evening…
I discovered the editorial page in Cook’s Illustrated just recently. Now mind you, I’ve been aware of Christopher Kimball for years. For a big portion of the past few years I caught America’s Test Kitchen on PBS every Saturday. Each months issues editorial brings a story of place. The place he writes of are the mountains he calls home and the people who inhabit those mountains with him. The magazine he edits has always attracted me. As much for the artwork on the covers as for the stories inside. I have always felt the covers called for frames and walls to hold them, but once I actually started reading the magazines I discovered I am willing to pay the price of admission just to read Mr. Kimball’s monthly musings about life and history and the folks he shares his life with.
If you haven’t stumbled on the Cook’s Illustrated Editorial, do yourself a favor and beg, borrow or steal a copy and see if you don’t agree that they are worth the price of the magazine. And if you don’t find Christopher Kimball entertaining, you’ll still have some great magazines with lots of cooking tips and recipes…enjoy.
