I gifted this subscription to my sister but I read them when I’m at her house. ;) These magazines are awesome. There aren’t as many ads as there are in most magazines now and the ads that are there are so fun and unique that they don’t seem like ads! Absolutely worth the price, best home, cooking and family magazine available right now in my opinion. Lots of recipes are included in each issue. There are 4 magazines each year (one for each season!) and they look great sitting out on the coffee table! Pictures are colorful and vivid. I love the pioneer woman’s style, everything is bright and cheerful! I definitely recommend this magazine.
