Southern Living has been a keystone of Southern culture since its creation in 1966, when it was read mainly by farmers from the South. It features articles on Southern cooking, home planning and decorating, gardening, and even travel. Since the magazine itself is aimed at people living in the South, readers know that they are getting a real glimpse of what life is like in the South.
Cooking is one of the most important aspects of Southern culture, and Southern Living has published countless recipes from the area, along with walk-throughs and instructions. In fact, the magazine’s Annual Cooking Edition is centered around the food culture of the South. Those looking for healthy and light choices will also find plenty of recipes in the pages of Southern Living to cook at home.
Southern Living often focuses on homes in the South, and the magazine features articles on both home planning and home decoration. Floor plans found in the magazine have been and continue to be used by people building homes in the South and elsewhere. Articles about the decoration of real Southern homes provide readers with ideas for lighter work that they can do around their own houses. Those interested in gardening will enjoy the magazine’s detailed plant guides, as well as its illustrations of decorative gardening from the South.
