Kraft Food's "Food & Family" magazine...

Hulbert, OK(Zone 7a)

For a while now I've been receiving the Food & Family magazine
put out free of charge (repeat, FREE OF CHARGE) in the mail.

They contain recipes, coupons, great pictures, methods of cooking,
etc. Free. Now what is keeping you from signing up?

Go to: http://www.kraftfoods.com and register. Easy. You can
receive your issue via email or in a real magazine mailed to your
home. Sign up for your free subscription, you will love these magazines
and find yourself anxious for the next one to come! I've saved all
of mine and rate them right up there next to my Birds & Blooms mags!

I can't tell you how many of the recipes I've tried and refer to often.
Today I'm making the Warm Winter Lemon Cake for the 100th time.
Though many eat it warm, I refrigerate it overnight before eating, and
YUM!

Wuvie,

You are like one of the best things to hit Dave's Garden!

I get this magazine free to but never would have thought to share it here. Where are my southern manners?

Some of the recipes have been funny, like mixing ground hamburger in your mac and cheese but some do look good and it's FREE!!!!

There's a whole bunch of free sites, BH&G, Kraft foods, Martha Stewart and others. I get several which I brows from time to time to get new recipe ideas.

Ah, yes, but free publications full of recipes in the mail, especially good.

:-)

Walpole, NH(Zone 5a)

Yes, think I'll check that one out. Thanks

It's been a while, so I thought I would bump this
for anyone new to the cooking forum.

As fall approaches, it is time to pull out the past
and present issues of Kraft Foods magazine for
some fabulous eating!

This month's issue includes 'Good to the bone'
Bacon, Cheese and Potato Chowder.

* 3 cups milk
* 1 can (10 3/4 ounce) Campbell's condensed cream of potato soup
* 2 cups frozen Southern-style hash browns
* 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 2 slices bacon - Cooked, drained and crumbled
* 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

Mix milk and soup in large saucepan. Stir in hash browns.
Bring to boil on high heat, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Ladle into soup bowls. Top evenly with cheese, bacon and onions.

Many thanks, Kraft!

Thanks for the bump, Wuvie!

Thanks, Flowerlady!

And for those who don't happen to have bacon on
hand, Bac-O's or some other real bacon bits will work, too.

Thanks Wuvie,

There's an older one from 2004 that's been recently posted to but lol it's in the recipes forum instead. I've been trying some of the latest issues recipes (also available online) and have been pleased with the meals so far! Some are very yummy and worth adding to your recipe collection!

Just got a recipe book from Wal-mart by mail---guess I got on the mass mailing list this year lol---don't know if you can subscribe on their site but it's FREE.

Houston, United States(Zone 9b)

You can subscribe for the free mini-mag done by Wal-Mart by emailing: subscription@homemademagazine.com I don't know how many issues per year they do but the first page says:

Thanks Wuv, just what I needed. Here I am, drinking black coffee (FWIW: Costco now carries beans roasted to their specs by Starbucks, and it's KICKIN!!!) trying to lose the weight I put back on at Thanksgiving, so I can avoid having to fight with my internist about triglycerides, and you remind me of something I try to forget. The best chocolate layer cake I ever ate was the one Mom used to make, and it was based on a Woman's Day recipe from the Eisenhower era.

I've been itching to make if for months. I used to have my pastry chef make it back in my restaurant daze, but I could never stop eating the stuff.

I may just throw away the mixer in self-defense.

Bah Humbug, already.

-South Central-, IL(Zone 6a)

Okay, Sboy, share that recipe!!!

Houston, United States(Zone 9b)

Has Kraft nixed the magazine given the times? I can't even remember the last one I got?

Hulbert, OK(Zone 7a)

Tir Na,

So glad you bumped this thread, it reminded me to update.

Kraft Foods is now charging for this magazine. My last issue arrived with a bill
to continue receiving. While I will miss the magazine, it is yet another expense
that has been chopped from the budget. Realistically, one can access the Kraft
website, but not as much fun as sipping coffee while perusing the full color pages.

Sigh.

Houston, United States(Zone 9b)

Oh man. That stinks. I figured as much.

That's along the same reason I quit my taste of home mag. Sure they have a lot of detail that goes into it's production but it's CONTENT is primarily READER provided! I mean the readers are offering up the recipes! And yet taste of home announced last year due to costs they would be having advertizing in their magazine, something new for them. I found it tasteless after being a subscriber for years when you pay as low as $12 a year for 6 magazines but many folks don't get those great rates and pay retail.

Thanks for the update on Kraft.

Info on the cost: https://w1.buysub.com/pubs/MR/KFF/ff_sub_page.jsp?cds_page_id=60672&cds_mag_code=KFF&id=1238684911905&lsid=90921008319014141&vid=1

Now I liked getting the magazine and I'd even make recipes from it but it seems weird to BUY a magazine that's a sure product endorsement isn't it? LOL.

Oh well. One more subscription.
