Just received it today.
Great article and recipes on Joan.
Received my issue yesterday, looks like a good one. First one to catch my eye was the mexican cornbread. Looks yummy. Just want to say that it seems to come earlier than it used to, and that's a good thing as i'm in British Columbia and used to get it half way thru the issue- for example this one at the end of April, so that's a definite improvement.

I got my issue the other day. Can't wait to try the pizzas. My family loves pizza. Also got some good idea how to set up a mini pizza garden.

I received my new issues and I must say!
I was very excited!!! It looks great! New and refreshing and was very interesting through and though!
And looks like there might be a few less adds. I did not feel like every second page was an advertisement! Had a different feel this time! Really enjoyed it!
Wonderful! Love the new issue!
I received my Taste of Home magazine about a week ago. Have been perusing it's pages, a few at a time each evening. I found several recipes that interest me and the pictures were lovely though, to me, rather large. Examples, pages 34 & 55 and nearly all of them are this way. I think the picture could be about a third of the size shown and then there would be room to enlarge the print of the recipe for easier reading or adding another recipe.
Pages, such as 56 & 57 for example, though nice--to large--wasted space when the pictures seem to "shout" at me and no recipe on the pages.
White?! Some young person with excellent eye sight must have come up with that notion of white print on dark colors which makes the white print sort of pick up the hue of the colored page rendering the printed words almost invisible. Do away with the white print or make them bolder and larger.

We've gotten several comments about the white type being difficult to read. These have been forwarded to our editorial team.
I love the new April/May issue, but I have one question. I wanted to read the rules for the dream kitchen contest where readers submit photos and information about their own kitchens. All I can find on the website is a sweepstakes to win a dream kitchen. This is not the contest I was looking for. Can anyone help?
I am a longtime subscriber of Taste of Home and over the last 20 years have ocasionally had subscription to other ToH publications and cookbooks.
I'm totally disappointed with the "new" Taste of Home. The original premise of the magazine was that it was good food recipes from folks around the country who used your everyday common items from the grocery store.
To me, the new magazine is nothing more than a rehashing of the advertiser's recipes from their websites. It's basically all fluff and no content now. The recipes are so basic, a 6 year old could make most of them. Afterall, who really needs a recipe for a cut up fruit salad. So my subscription is expiring shortly and will not be renewed.
Maybe somebody in the editoral staff will wake up and smell the coffee soon!
So sorry you feel that way jcpope. I guess you didn't see my field editor's menu in the April/May issue of TOH. None of my recipes are from an advertiser's website. They are all T&T recipes that I have been preparing for many years. None of the contest winners looked like they were from an advertiser's website, either. And, the one thing I love about TOH is that I can always find the ingredients in my grocery store. JMHO.

Proud Field Editor for Taste of Home for 16-1/2 years.
for this issue I was glad to see a recipe for me that is easy to make and it is on the second page of the april/may issue 2009.
It was very easily written, I deal with anxiety when cooking plus memory loss on cooking, but this is simple and that I am preparing that for my meal tonight, I got a late start today for my meal preparing and my family kept me distracted from cooking it earlier but what can you do.
Sounds great. Can't wait to get it but think it will be a few weeks yet as I am in the UK. I wonder if I am allowed to send recipes or be a field editor? Maybe thats US only?
I have the same question myself!
