I have subscribed to Cooking Light magazine for over five years. When I was in law school, I decided I wanted to lose weight. I always loved to cook and to try new and interesting foods, and someone recommended Cooking Light to me. I am so glad they did! Not only did I find an interesting magazine with great recipes, but I ended up losing over 80 pounds by combining Cooking Light with the Weight Watchers diet (I'm sure I'll have another review for that). I couldn't have done Weight Watchers without Cooking Light, though. I love variety, and Cooking Light made sure that every month, I had new and interesting recipes to try.
The recipes in Cooking Light are for every type of cooking skill level, ensuring that beginners and gourmet chefs alike will be able to make the recipes and not be bored by them. They have several non-cooking features as well, including monthly sections on beauty, exercise, travel, and wine pairings. Each month they also have a section with only vegetarian recipes, and a section of quick and easy recipes for weeknight dinners. They always focus on ingredients that would be fresh and in-season, as well.
The picture in my review is a Honey Peach and Raspberry Cobbler that I got from a Cooking Light recipe and made from ingredients fresh from my local farmer's market. It's amazing that something that looks (and tastes!) so good could be healthy too. It's just one example of the many great things I've made from Cooking Light!
