  1. LAMPC I think you have to buy one of their magazines to get the recipes! I tried to get it too but it took me to a page where I have to subscribe a whole magazine in order to continue. I don’t need another magazine, so I’m going to try to find another one on the net – can’t be that different. Just type in Coconut Curry Chicken and I bet something turns up. 

  2. Too bad they’re all Taste of Home recipes.  I think the idea was to have food taste good?
