For starters, sorry for the crickets over here in my corner of the blog-o-sphere, I've been studying for exams like a crazy person and haven't had the mental energy to devote here. But I had to post a quick comment after reading that Gourmet Magazine is getting the ax from Conde Nast. I just subscribed to this magazine and am really sad to hear that it is going. They have great recipes that test your culinary chops and teach you a thing or two in the process. Any suggestions?
