I've tried plenty of her recipes, definitely more than five, but mostly just cookie recipes. It's been a while though, since then I've discovered this BB, and all the fabulous recipes everyone has to share here, so I haven't had much time for Martha.
None of her recipes have become instantly part of my 'permanant collection,' if that's what you're asking.
I have lots more fun with Fine Cooking, so if I had to pick a new food mag, I'd say definitely Fine Cooking over MS Living.
(I do not have an interest in the non-food parts of MS Living, if you do, and enjoy crafty projects, you might like it.)
A fruit is a vegetable with looks and money.
Plus, if you let fruit rot, it turns into wine,
something Brussels sprouts never do.
