Video Transcript
Hi, I’m Beth, a food and drink blogger from Nashville, TN. I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting things in the culinary world so I created my blog, Eat. Drink. Smile. to share all of my adventures, discoveries, inspirations, and recipes, along with a sprinkling of just about anything else that brings a smile to my face!

I’m also a long-time subscriber to Cooking Light magazine. It all began after I gained the dreaded Freshman 15 in college. (Truth be told: It was 20!) I had to make some changes in my life, and the first step was spending several hours of my week in the gym. In addition to working out, I began to get interested in cooking for myself so I wouldn’t have to rely on the campus canteens for my meals.

When I happened upon a copy of Cooking Light at a friend’s place, I was instantly mesmerized by the delicious looking healthy dishes that were featured. It seemed to be the perfect way to start down my new healthier path in life. Over time the magazine has made many changes, and I have to say that I’m happier with it now than ever before. With it’s bright photography and clean layout, it’s an easy and enjoyable read. I’m a very visual person, so I love that it has photos with every recipe, and is not too text heavy.

With food as the focus, the dishes seem to come to life on the pages in front of me. While I sometimes enjoy other food magazines, many of them use exotic or hard to find ingredients in their recipes, and the steps involved in the process are too cumbersome for my busy lifestyle. What I love about Cooking Light is that the cooking techniques are usually very simple, the instructions are easy to follow, and finding the ingredients is a cinch.

In addition to the recipes, I also really enjoy the “Editor’s Dozen” section, where there are always new products and interesting gadgets I’ve never seen before. I’ve purchased many of the featured items for both myself and to give as gifts!

If you’re like me and love to cook then be sure to check out the current Cooking Light subscription offers at and follow my adventures at and @betheats on Twitter!
