An update and years of Gourmet Magazines for Sale

September 23rd, 2023

I have been away from my blog for a long time now. I still love the blogging community and all of the virtual friends I have made over my 10+ years of blogging. But other pursuits have filled my time and photographing my meals got to be too time consuming. When I have to tell my husband that we have to eat at 4:00 in order to get the best light for the meal, he just shakes his head.

We are also cleaning out accumulated stuff of a lifetime. One of the cabinets in my bookcase has housed my collection of Gourmet Magazines dating back to the late 60’s and 70’s. I have been an avid cook from the time we married in 1966. I have been reading some of these back issues and am amazed at how much information is available in each of them.

The 1989 December issue is a good example. There are tasty recipes for Winter stews for entertaining, 6 different fudge recipes, 3 recipes for Hanukkah latkes, and a yummy praline butter cookie recipe. There is a detailed travel article on Santa Fe, New Mexico and a Christmas in Provence article. But the best article was about the way Dolley Madison entertained in the White House. She was quite a character. Each article was so well written, intelligent, and detailed.

I checked EBay and Amazon for old issues of Gourmet and have decided a fair price to charge is $3.00 each for them with the following breakdown.

The issues will be sold by year. This is what I have.

1966-1, 1967-1, 1968-4, 1969-5, 1970-4, 1971-3, 1972-3, 1973-5, 1974-10, 1978-10, 1979-1. The issues are in pretty good shape for their age, but a few have loose pages. Nothing is missing.

1980-4, 1981-3, 1982-12, 1983-12, 1984-8, 1985-12, 1986-9, 1987-10, 1988 -12, 1989-12 (one issue has loose pages), 1990-12, 1991-6, 1992-6, 1993-11, 1994-3, 1995-12, 1996-11, 1997-12, 1998-9, 1999-12, 2000-7, 2001-5, 2002-1, 2003-5, 2004-4, 2005-8, 2006-12, 2007-4, 2008-6, 2009-6.

Shipping charges will be calculated by the number of magazines you purchase.

E-mail me with any questions,

My best to all. I may be blogging something occasionally.

    Made your Apple Bundt cake with Caramel Frosting for Thanksgiving. Second time making it….so yummy! Have made your Mystery Bars many times .Everyone loves them. Decided I need to spend some time reviewing your recipes. I was born and raised in SC. Visted your area of NC many many times. Moved to Vegas for awhile then to a small town outside of Boise Idaho. Absolutely beautiful & peaceful. Back in SC now enjoying being with family. Who knows where I’ll land, but leaning toward NC. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes
