Phyllis Inspiration 20 Comments

Can you believe it is another New Year? It seems like we just started 2018. We have so many wonderful things going on here at Hoffman Media. Did you know we now own the Original Sewing and Quilting Expo? And the Martha Pullen Company? We are so excited about these wonderful additions to our company. More to come on that! Also, the January magazines are coming off the press, and I am so excited to share my favorite features from each of them! 

Bake From Scratch—Hold on to your belt if you can! I had one glimmer at the Morning Buns, and I wanted one so bad. I just love flaky dough, and the tips and techniques of working with it have challenged me to learn this fine skill. This issue is filled with wonderful baking tips, techniques, and recipes galore!

Louisiana Cookin’—The King Cake on the cover is amazing! But there are more recipes for King Cakes inside as we celebrate Mardi Gras! I love the 30-Minute Gumbo recipe that I can quickly cook and serve to my family. You will love this issue!

Taste of the South—I am an Orange Sweet Roll fan! The Remember to Treat Yourself feature will make you long for a pan of hot ones coming out of the oven. I also loved the article on Classic Cornbread. For the New Year, what could be more wonderful when paired with black-eyed peas?

The Cottage Journal—The chill of winter is lessened by the warm, cozy ideas that are contained in these pages. The Cottage Journal brings petite-space living to life with each page. Some of the most beautiful collections are found in this issue. If you love linens, there is a special feature just for you!

Southern Lady—The decorating issue is always a favorite. In this issue, we get to visit some of the South’s charming homes of all styles. Also, it’s fun to catch up with our favorite humorist, Jeanne Robertson. You won’t believe what she is doing now. And there are soup recipes to warm our soul—perfect for winter!

Victoria—Oh, the beauty of this issue always pleases me. Valentine’s Day is coming, and the celebration has already begun! This issue has dreamy photos of antique laces, china, and everything I love! Our favorite entrepreneurs share their paths of success to their dream businesses.

Cook: Real Food Everyday—I love the quick-fix recipes in this issue. My time right after the holidays is a time of regrouping and recharging, and having wonderful recipes to fix that don’t require a lot of time is a dream. The Baked Ziti on the cover gets my vote every time. You will love this issue.

And to top it off, there are chocolate dessert recipes galore! You will be the favorite cook in the family very soon! Get out your cast iron and get cooking.

Tea Time—Tea is something I really enjoy, and when paired with scrumptious small bites, I am in heaven. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to host a tea. This issue will give you ideas and recipes, and it will be a reference for your event from start to finish.
