    I love Everyday Italian by Giada De Laurentiis. The Turkey Meatballs are to die for, and I make double batches of the Marinara Sauce and freeze it. I haven't bought sauce in a jar since - it's really good and easy to make. I do go to Food Net and print a lot of Barefoot Contessa recipes though, last year I used her Truffle recipe to make 280 truffles for a friend's wedding.

    Have you tried her Mascarpone Mini Cupcakes with Strawberry Glaze? They are to die for! I will post it over in recipes.

    I haven't, but I just read your recipe and they sound really good. She's the one who turned me on to adding a splash of balsamic vinegar to fresh berries. It sounds gross but it's delicious.

    If you love old Italian recipes, this cookbook features the recipes from Carbone's restaurant in Hartford....a culinary staple for seventy years.

    If you buy only one new magazine the rest of this year, buy Paula Deen's special edition Chocolate one.

    Someone lent it to me. I've just about memorized it. Made one of the recipes and am trying to decide what to make next.

    It's fabulous!

    Re: Cookbooks and Food magazines

    I got the coolest cookbook this weekend at a booksellers' event. It should be out in stores pretty soon. It's called Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's and has recipes using only ingredients you can buy at TJ's, including lots of prepackaged things that the authors doctor up. They were serving an amazing lentil salad that I now have to make. There are tons of recipes that are pretty easy and sound really yummy. The authors - Deanna Gunn and Wona Miniati - are going to be launching a website where people can post their own TJ's recipes. I'll add it to the Cooking Websites thread when the email me.

    That's way cool, Critical! Thanks for the heads up -- I'll be looking for it!

    That's great, Crit, we just got a Trader Joe's here and the bf and I went overboard in there last week. It seemed like a store that catered to single people, with all the frozen stuff -- single people who want a cheap delicious easy chimichanga and will pay $12 for a six-pack of fancy beer. I did like the two-buck chuck too. We made a delicious recipe from their website, though -- some sort of "tandoori pizza" that involved their frozen garlic naan (delicious!) topped with a veggie tapenade (we used one that was just roasted red peppers and garlic and maybe onion) and chevre cheese (we used mozzarella) and cilantro.

    The Food Network now has a magazine. I just saw an ad for it on TV so I checked the website and found a link to subscribe.
