If you recall, a few weeks ago I posted about Gourmet magazine predicting that 2009 will be the year of cooking at home and comfort foods. As I look around, it seems they were right. At the grocery store check out, I noticed that the words Comfort Food were large and prominent on the covers of Real Simple, EveryDay with Rachel Ray, and Taste of Home.

Seems Amazon.com has its finger on the cooking at home part of the trend. I got an e-mail the other day from the online store announcing a sale on healthy cooking magazines. If cooking at home is something you are interested in doing more of (or starting to do at all), a regularly delivered magazine can offer some inspiration.

The question is, are Amazon’s sale prices really a bargain?

Here’s the lowdown. They are offering their top 5 healthy magazines at a discounted rate, but only three of the five are less expensive than if you ordered them right form the website.
