I'd love to win this so my letterbox would have something exciting rather than just bills and reminders.
I love the kids issue, I brought issues before I had a child and have used so many recipes from them. Love 'em

I'd love a Donna Hay subscription as I've been a full time working mum for 3 years and in a few weeks I'm dropping back to 1 day a week of work and I can't wait to do more elaborate cooking! :)

As the blogger who began the blog event "Hay Hay Its Donna Day" It may surprise you know I don't own a single Donna book. I sometimes buy the magazine and would love subscrption. I am surprised by the first comment as I hav e the opposite experience. Every recipe I've tried works perfectly.

Charmaine on January 8, 2011 at 8:10 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

A Donna Hay subscription will help me prepare more exciting meals and there will be new recipes to try out with my family.

I'd love a subscription! Having never ventured into the world of Donna Hay, I was overwhelmed by visual candy when I discovered the Kid's Annual this year. I'd love to have a bit more of a drool over the pages of new magazines from her range!

BB on January 8, 2011 at 8:38 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Donna Hay is one luxury my budget doesn't allow for. I love flippig through the recent mags at the library when we visit. To have the mag delivered in my mailbox would be a complete treat! Especially the kids issue :-)

Sharon on January 8, 2011 at 8:41 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

I think it's more like "Why Wouldn't I like a Donna Hay Mag Subscription?!!" LOL
I would love one....I need some inspiration!!

Trish on January 8, 2011 at 8:48 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Oh it would be great I have never had a subscription and I love her magazines and books. Never made a recipe of hers that hasn't worked thanks for the entry opportunity.

Caz on January 8, 2011 at 9:18 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Oooh I would love a subscritpion to Donna Hay, that is one indulgence I had to give up when I became a SAHM a few years ago. The copies I do have (from 2006 lol) are well loved and well used though, especially the kids issues now that my three year old is helping me in the kitchen!
Happy Birthday Frills x

One of my goals this year is to get cooking! I have been neglecting my cooking skills, this would definitely be a fantastic start to achieving my cooking goal! Great prize.

I'd love a subscription so my mailbox actually contained something interesting! And because I'm determined to learn all the tricks to her great food styling.

I've always loved Donna Hay, her recipes are ones that you can make over and over again, simple but fantastic.

What a great prize!

Super Sarah on January 8, 2011 at 10:53 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Some of my very favourite recipes ever are Donna Hay originals. I love her style and someone mentioned it above, but her meals always (usually!) turn out looking visually appealing. I would love this prize!

I would love a subscription because then there isno excuses for not being able to make a good meal, no "I couldnt get to the store so I missed out on the mag" or " I have no inspiration to cook something different". Having such a classy cooking mag delivered will mean my family will be in for at least 12 months of yummines

Francine Vojinonv said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

I love Donna Hay, have cut down on buying my cooking mags since having the twins but I do buy the annual kids Donna Hay, so would dearly love love a years subscription to inspire me and I really do like looking at Donnas beautiful foodie pics and as my partner always says I look at food magazines as if they were porn "Food porn" ha ha

I love Donna Hay - she is like an aussie Nigella! I would love having a subscription too because that way I don't have to try and remember to buy it at the shops. So gorgeous to look through.

Oh how I would heart a subscription to Donna Hay! I used to subscribe to her magazine but couldn't afford to keep it going. Another years subscription would he such an amazing treat!

I'd love to win because my cooking is shocking (my mum was the Queen of frozen food!)

Marcia said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

I'd love a subcription because not only do they add yummy recipes to your collection they also add to your lounge room.
The covers are always so pretty they make fantastic coffee table books!

Permanently twenty three on January 8, 2011 at 2:45 PM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Cooking mags are seriously my porn, Liss. Seriously. I love to flick through them when hubs is in bed and the kids have retired for the day. Plus my 'Delicious' subscription has lapsed. And I STILL use my Donna Hay cook books that I received as wedding gifts over 8 years ago.

Chrissy on January 8, 2011 at 3:40 PM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Ohh I'd so love to win this. I'm in a bit of a cooking rut at the moment and need some inspiration and I just LOVE Donny Hay - I think my sister is sick of me borrowing her magazines.

Plus it was my 31st birthday yesterday and this would be such an awesome b'day present for me :)

Ohhh my god, this would be the best prize ever! Donna Hay is my food porn of choice. Love her, love her cookbooks, love her magazines xxx

Kirrily on January 8, 2011 at 5:51 PM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

I love the Donna Hay magazines, I still have the wedding issue and had a flick through it quite recently (despite no plans to get married again anytime soon!) - I'd love a subscription to her magazine, the 2011 Kirrily is going on a pretty big health kick but I'd love to still be able to browse through the pages and choose one special meal to cook each month!

OMG best giveaway ever! I would love a subscription because I read cook books and magazines like their novels. I just find the pictures so inspiring and I really need to get into the kitchen more this year. I was a bit slack on the kitchen front last year and this would be just the inspiration I need!

Candice on January 8, 2011 at 10:52 PM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Donna Hay's pictures of the recipes is what get me every time. I would love to win to show my hubby that I can cook :)

Ok attempt two (was on my Iphone before and lost it all grr) Anyway when I used to work in my overly bureaucratic but highly paid job I used to subscribe to Gourmet Traveller- since starting my own business I stopped subscribing. I would love the escape of a magazine- plus the photography is good too :)
I tweeted too :)

I would LOVE this subscription as I just love the Donna Hay magazines. It takes a whole month to get through reading them and trying the recipes, and they are so beautiful to keep to refer back to or just flick through over and over again.

I am a big fan of Donna Hays mags. Her recipes are easy to follow and generally use ingredients readily available and her photos are so droolworthy.

Would love a subscription to Donna Hay - I think one of the first cookbooks I owned was a Donna Hay Marie Claire one, so she is up there with Jamie on giving me the cooking passion.
I am a big believer that we eat with our eyes first - Donna must believe the same, as her magazine is definitely a feast for the eyes. If you get to cook from it too, it's a huge bonus :)

Veggie Mama on January 10, 2011 at 10:30 AM said... [Reply to this amazing comment]

Ohhh it's the pictures that get me. Makes me want to cook before I've even finished reading the magazine!

I love love love Donna! Make one of her recipes at least twice a week. I have hinted about a subscription gift to hubby over the last 2 years. Sadly, he has not taken the bait. Maybe this will be my lucky day! :-)

I NEED a subscription to Donna Hay Magazine. I'm hopeless at food styling and Donna Hay is certainly the Queen. I'm convinced if I look at the beautiful pictures long enough something might rub off.
I also like her simple recipes, especially the baking!
Thanks.
