    I like them. The font on the cover isn't one I would have chosen (it looks a little afterthoughty to me), but overall, I like what they've done.

    I do love that there are 3 recipes in there! What a great reason for people to keep the book and think of us every time they open it.

    For me personally, I really like the layout of them!! I thought it was a little easier to see the products individually.

    Oh yes, I loved that part too!!
    Another thing I thought was cool, was on the contents page, it listed what recipes were in there and what page they were on!
    Hopefully, people will hang onto them a bit longer!

    Please don't take this as a highjack, but along the same lines, I think they did NOT choose a good photo for the new Season's Best. Meatloaf? Seriously? :p

    JMO, but they could have picked something a little more universally appetizing.

    LOL - if they are trying to go for the male audience, then this SB might work - every man in my family LOVES meatloaf! ;)

    We saw the SB at NC. We all got a catalog at lunch. You should get an email today from PC with most of the official info.

    Last season's catalog had the same feature. 3 wonderful recipes and they were listed on the contents page. I've enticed at least one person to do a catalog show by letting them peruse my catalog.

    I always prefer the fall catalog over the spring/summer. It's warmer. The picture isn't bad but I do prefer the picture on the spanish cover.

  13. Funny you should say that. I find that all of the catalogs I receive I like the Spanish cover better.
     
  14. Paulette,

    Did you guys/gals get to taste the Carrot Cake in the DMMP or the Potato Chowder? They both sound so yummy and I can't wait to cook them. Just wondering if you got to sample and your opinion on them.

    Nope no samples except for the 2 new sauces.
    Peanut thai is yummy with a little kick
    Maple honey mustard is good but it has a wicked kick!

    Wicked kick is right. I didn't expect that with the Maple - I was going more for sweet. Thank goodness I was warned before I tried it.

    I think the maple honey mustard will be good for putting on before baking/grilling but not sure I would use it as a dipping sauce. I was glad I had a bottle of water in my bag when I tried it, that is for sure.

    Me too! I'd been warned, but it still took me by surprise a bit.

    I'm thinking I'd like to mix it w/ a little brown sugar and use it as a Ham Glaze.

    I don't like the cover photo. The last few cover recipes haven't appealed to my tastes at all. When we had the trifle bowl on the cover, the catalog got a lot of interest. I was hoping for a chocolate dessert on the cover. When cooking magazines have a dessert, esp. chocolate, on the cover, newstand sales spike up. I think the interior layout is good. They moved Stoneware up into the first half and put cutlery behind it.

    Good way to show another product! Peel the tater! ;)

    I CANNOT WAIT to try the chowder. The video shown at NC made me want it right then and there. I hope its a good show recipe.

    The video did make it sound yummy...will definitely make at home....but think it may be too many steps for a show. I know, I'm lazy. But I keep it simple....toss it all in, micro...voila, dinner!
     
  28. I think I will cook the potatoes before guests arrive..then do the rest as my demo. I made the chowder yesterday for my family and we loved it.
