    Issue 152 January 2021 Easy Food magazine

    In our opinion, January should always mean hibernation, cosy socks and comfort food.

    Sure, it’s cold, and we’re broke, and there’s still a pandemic out there. But look on the bright side: cooking and baking make great hobbies, and afterwards, there’s food! Here are just some of the delicious reasons to pick up a copy of Easy Food January and snuggle up with the foods that make you feel good.
