News and Notes
For a magazine that's about restriction (calories and fat), Cooking Light certainly comes across as a predictable source of abundance. Every month seems to bring more content than the last -- from their nutrition column and the fact-packed front section ("First Light") with pages on food, health, and fitness, to their feature sections on cooking techniques, lightening up high-calorie reader recipes, vegetarian cuisine, seasonal fare, quick meals, wines, and much, much, much more. They recently added home design and beauty sections, which, for my money, may signal the the editors are getting a little carried away. However, as long as each month Cooking Light delivers more than 100 recipes that help me eat well and watch my weight, I'll be a dedicated fan.
