I have always been a book-lover, so it's natural for me to collect Halloween books, but magazines catch my eye too, especially when I have time to peruse them on breaks at work. Lately, the fall and Halloween issues of the standard women's mags (BHG, Family, Southern Living, etc) have been showing up on the stands and they definitely have a way of catching my eye. I picked up a copy of this season's "Taste of Home" "Ultimate Halloween" offering last week, and while it has a lot of cutesy things in it, the recipes are what really prompted my purchase. (It's actually a softcover cookbook, but we'll call it a magazine since it was in the magazine section and all. :)
I'm always looking for something different and tasty to whip up for the yearly event, and even though it's not happening this year, I want to get a jump on next year's party by scouring for new recipes to try out during my hiatus. Now, there's always the same ol' thing in most of these magazines, but I did find a few things I want to try, and every one of these mags inspires me, so that makes it worth the extra bucks I spend on them.
Anyway, Taste of Home doesn't disappoint this year, at least not me and I'm happy to have another Halloween reading goodie in my growing collection. You can also check out the recipes in the Halloween section of their Holiday recipes on tasteofhome.com. Enjoy!
