Off the Rack - Down Home Cooking

While I adore Elle Decor, wonder at World of Interiors and greet House Beautiful like an old friend, I still miss some of the dearly departed.

Don't get me started on HG. But Domino and Cottage Living both offered glimpses of, well, really great regular houses. Houses that looked like my friends' houses. Where I might hang out in the kitchen and have a cup of coffee.

I just picked up a subscription to Country Living; their editorial content is filling the gap. That runner, oh my.
