Agreed. I get the Kraft mag, too, and I'm always impressed at its high quality. They must pump a lot of cash into producing that thing...on the other hand, they OWN just about every major brand of US processed food, so... Oh, and love the website
Anyway, I often use it for inspiration. But I don't use a lot of the ingredients they suggest - cool whip, meat, velveeta etc. Not my thing. But, as I say, great inspirations.
I WAS planning to try the recipe in the latest issue for a lemon dessert. It has yellow cake mix and lemon pudding mix in it, with the pudding producing a nice goopy layer. Sounds yummy. I was going to make it for dinner guests last weekend but DH got sick and we had to cancel.
