Sunset magazine is more than a gardening magazine. I enjoy their recipes - they are pretty basic, easy to follow and are delicious. The travel suggestion are usually out of my pocket range. I miss the old days of Sunset.

Sunset is o.k., but as others stated, it is not strictly a gardening magazine and a person shouldn't buy it if all they want is gardening magazine. I agree that it used to be better. They are too much into stuff that is too expensive for my tastes - like hotels where rooms go for $275 a night and trendy room remodels. They do have a lot of healthful and interesting recipes.

As a garden magazine, Sunset leaves a bit to be desired. But Sunset ISN'T a garden magazine pure and simple--it's also a food magazine and a travel magazine and a home magazine.
I admit I don't like the new format nearly as much as the old format, and the articles have a lot less substance than they used to. Still, I'd say most months I come away with some new idea for the garden--not necessarily something I'll implement, but something to consider at least.
I still like the recipes, because there's a reasonable chance that NONE of them will be so vile that my mother feels compelled to try them and use ME as an experimental subject to taste them. The few recipes she does try are at least edible.
