One of the best little (literally) food magazines is going by the wayside thanks to corporate cutbacks, which are understandable, sure, in today’s belt-tightening economy. Still it’s hard to let go of Everyday Food magazine so easily.
Despite its smaller—but very convenient—digest size, there were lots of reasons to love this Martha Stewart publication. Practical, helpful, creative and on and on. And no, you didn’t have to be a domestic virtuoso like Martha to pull off most of the easy-to-make recipes featured in every issue.
Word is that Everyday Food will become part of Martha Stewart Living, but will be published as a five-times-a-year supplement rather than a standalone title.
The company also says it will “continue in digital media,” so at least it’s not disappearing completely. While it won’t be quite the same, the magazine will live on—in what has become contemporarily customary—in archived issues swapped and sold on the Internet, food bloggers who cook and review the recipes and maybe, just maybe the Everyday Food Recipes app.
In this spirit of nostalgia and appreciation for Everyday Food, we’re taking a look back and the best recipes we’ve tried and tested over the past couple of years. Enjoy this helping of one of our food magazine favorites.
Mini Triple-Treat Cupcakes: With ideas like this on how to use up excess Halloween candy (including ever-present candy corn), the magazine is certainly nothing if not practical.
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Bacon: Another Everyday Food recipe victory, just not as sweet. Side suggestions, such as this one, are notoriously quick, easy and delicious.
Tortilla Cups with Yogurt and Fresh Fruit: Leave it to Martha to think of making everything but muffins in a muffin pan. This is but one of her many creative uses for the kitchen staple.
Oatmeal Cream Pies: Once again, Martha tackles an iconic treat, and it’s even easier than you might think. Some even say it’s better than the “real thing.”
Minted Chocolate Cookies: Using a few easy shortcuts from Martha, you too can closely copy a certain Girl Scout cookie favorite. (Danger: Indulgence ahead.)
