I'm a volunteer!

I just signed up to be a volunteer recipe tester for Cook's Country magazine, which I love. If I had to pick a favorite magazine, I'd have to say CC edges out even Cook's Illustrated in my affections, because of the 50's-ish retro production style, what with its ever-so pastel-cast color photos and lightly country elements.

Supposedly I'll be getting notifications of recipes to test every couple of weeks. I can try them or skip them as I please. After I prepare the dish, I send in my notes.

I get to give Cook's Country my two cents! And to think, I was just telling someone my dream job would be as a writer and tester in their kitchens.

Close enough for now!


  1. Wow that sounds cool! I can't wait to hear what sorts of recipes you get to test. Are you allowed to talk about them or is it all private until they publish the recipes?

  2. Gee, good question. I don't know yet. I'll keep ya posted!
