April Magazine of the Month

If your like us, here at SVO,  we get magazines in the mail, not as much as it use to be but there are still some. With the switch to digital it seems like ads are what make up the magazines that are out on the shelfs. We think this is annoying, we want more content! Well luckily there is a magazine that focuses on content and not ads.

CUISINE at home Magazine is packed full of recipes, it comes every two months and is a publication under the August Home Publishing, they publish other magazines such as Woodsmith Magazine, ShopNotes Magazine, My Home My Style Magazine, and Garden Gate Magazine. Just like any other magazine it's got a table of contents, but unlike other magazines the table of contents is on the first page, followed by a note from the editor, no pesky ads. So refreshing!

There is a 'tips & timesavors' bit and from there on its nothing but recipes. Not a single ad insight.

So if you haven't already check out this magazine we highly recommend it.

Here is a recipe from the latest issue we can't wait to try out:
