Product of the Month: Vegetarian Times

I know there are a lot of web recipe sites out there (I surf them daily), and plenty of great cooking magazines... but this was a new one for me that blew my socks off.

I'm not sure if I should admit this on a vegetarian blog, but I'm an honest girl... my confession: I'm not usually a fan of vegetarian websites or magazines. Why? I've never thought they were all that good. A lot of recipes are flat-out strange. There, I said it.

I hate portabella mushrooms and eggplant (which many vegetarians waaayyyy overuse), and they use a bunch of ingredients I've sometimes never even heard of (and yes, I'm lazy enough not to bother looking them up). Also, while I consider myself earth friendly and eco-conscious, I'm not super-bio girl. A lot of vegetarian sites or people, are associated with being 'crunchy, tree huggers' as well. I'm working on it, but admittedly, not yet at the level of making my own household bio-cleaners. And I don't want to feel bad about that.

But, I may be changing my tune for one particular magazine. My friend gave me her copy of Vegetarian Times a couple months ago, and really, it was so great. Like Cooking Light, for veggies. Had interesting health and fitness info, and normal, yummy looking recipes. Wahoo! Someone got it right.

If you are ever in the mood to try out a new magazine, I urge you to give Vegetarian Times a shot. Peruse it during your next long, coffee in hand, Saturday visit to Barnes and Noble and let us know what you think.
