A Year Subscription to Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Magazine {GIVEAWAY}

Pin It

"Cooking Rule... If at first you don't succeed, order pizza" 

That was absolutely my motto a year ago before I started A Healthy Jalapeño. I can't believe how far I have come since January 2011. I shared my story of how I was a mere 20 something girl who seriously had an issue with the kitchen. Unless I was told and shown step-by-step how-to instructions, you could be sure that it would end up in the garbage...and even then it wasn't a sure thing. 


Either way it was my challenge, my insecurity as the women of the house. There was no way that at 27 years old and living with my boyfriend that I was going to have him cook for me for the rest of my life {although you know how much I was 'eating' that up} so I made a choice, started a blog and the cooking affair began.


{And what an affair it has been}.

I have learned so much from my {almost} year experience baking and cooking my way through all different recipes, magazines, cook books and other blogs. I have met some fabulous friends and bloggy buddies that share the same passion as myself and it's truly something I have come to LOVE.

Never in my wilds dreams did I think I was capable of making Pumpkin Pie Popsicles, a wild array of Pasta Salad's, my own White Spinach Lasagna or even professional bakery looking Pies. Every time I find a new recipe it becomes a new challenge for me, I always get super excited and I make it my goal to ensure I put all I can into making my dishes not only look beautiful but taste amazing as well.

One of my secret obsessions has been all my foodie magazines that I subscribe to. Currently I subscribe to 5 magazines and sometimes fall subject to buying a couple magazines off the shelf if the topic is right. I can't help myself... do you know what goodies lie within those thin glossy pages? I NEED TO KNOW. {or I am just a sucker for soaking up all the recipes I can and seeing what fabulous ideas everyone comes up with- especially around holidays}!!!! I have kind of started an empire and never-ending scrapbooking recipe collection that never lets me down and never leaves me uncreative.

So here is what I pose to you, my readers, my foodie friends, as a THANK YOU for reading and following along in my crazy life and messy kitchen!!!!

I have never seen this magazine before but I do know that other food magazines have amazing recipes so I'm sure this would would be amazing. I'm a new mom and also have only been on my own for less than two years so I'm still learning how to cook :)

I really like the variety of recipes in Everyday Food and how, even though most of them are dinner party worthy, they are simple recipes that don't have a list of ingredients as long as your arm. I would love a subscription!

Wow! Congrats on almost a year of cooking. I had much the same epiphany when I was a newlywed. It is so much nicer to put a great meal on the table and know that I actually made it!

I have never read her magazine, but every recipe I find of her's online are easy enough for the average home cook. I am not, nor do I ever claim to be a great cook, but I'm trying :) Most of the ingredients are in your pantry - which is huge for me because I highly dislike grocery shopping :) Thanks for the chance to enter!
