I look foward to this magazine every month and use it to plan my family's menu. It keeps me cooking new things. I have a hard time making recipes from other magazines because they don't taste nearly as good and normally have a lot more calories and fat. Tomorrow I'm going to try making a Roasted Butternut Squah and Shallot Soup. The recipe is very easy and a serving is only 112 calories.
