A new way to peruse the magazines with issuu

I was selected for this opportunity as part of the Girls’ Lunch Out network. All views expressed are entirely my own, and were not influenced or directed by either Girls’ Lunch Out or Issuu.

If you haven’t figured it out yet I love cooking and baking. If you weren’t sure take a peak at the incredible Fall Favorites series that I’ve been running for the past month or even my weekly Monday Menu. It’s not just writing about food or making food that I like, but it’s always buying fun cookbooks to flip through and drool over the amazing recipes and beautiful pictures. And then there is my guilty pleasure…. magazines. Cooking & baking magazines fill the shelves and change every month so there is always something new for me to try out but as you might guess those can get pretty expensive after a while.

I’ve found a way to help with my food magazine obsession… issuu. And after reading it a few times it started to recommend¬†articles and magazines to me based on what I’ve been reading.

Because food is one of my passions I found magazine after magazine to browse and my all time favorite was this one….

A week of Chai? Yes, please! I am not a coffee lover at all, but Chai tea is perfect! From traditional Chai, to Chai truffels, and hot chocolate Chai I’m trying to figure out how to print this baby out and keep it forever!
