I used to absolutely love this magazine but in the last year or so it has become dramatically thinner. It used to have great content and recipes homemaking tips etc. but now it is just advertisements and "fashion".
This magazine has staying power in a climate where magazines are disappearing. I like the variety of topics geared towards Canadians. If there were less ads and more coupons, I would like it even more!
I've been reading Canadian Living for decades. It's a good place to find tips, tricks and recipes. I currently have it on my Texture subscription. It is rare to have a magazine aimed at Canadians.
I buy this magazine every once in a while I enjoy reading the articles and their recipes I have tried are delicious and tasty! It is a magazine you can trust!!!!
My favourite part of this magazine are the wonderful recipes (especially the fall issues!). I have quite a few family favourites that have come from Canadian living and are on our regular meal rotation. I am also pleasantly surprised by the amount of innovative research and articles they report on, making science more accessible to everyone!
I love love love this magazine for its versatility and interesting articles, recipes and ideas for people of all ages! I've even tried a few recipes and found they were easy to follow, not too many ingredients in general and it makes delicious results even on weeknights!!! yum yum!
And as a bonus you get to read about new trends, products, health issues and so much more!
I found that the magazine is not what it used to be. There are less articles and more ads. Even when there are articles its not fulfilling. Will not be filling anymore subscriptions.
I've been getting these now for about four years. Some issues are more interesting than others but on the whole its a good magazine. Its Canadian, has some good articles about health and of course, there are the recipes, there was one for pea soup years ago that was delicious. It does seem to have more ads than it used to and it used to come with coupons but not so much any more. Its still a good buy .
My Mom and Aunts always subscribed to Canadian Living and passed the issues around, although by the time they got to me there were usually a few recipes torn out of it! When I moved across the country, I realized I missed it and got own subscription, which I have keep up for a few years now. I also like the fact that I can talk to my Mom about articles in it as I know she still reads it every month, as well. The recipes are true classics and easy to follow, and the articles are current and well written.
Canadian Living has something for everyone of all ages. The articles, tips, ideas and recipes are all very good. I like the versatility of the magazine and how it does appeal to women of all ages. I sometimes learn about new trends, products, health issues and may not have paid attention to them before reading the magazine. Keep up the good work!
