In case you hadn't heard, Gourmet magazine's last issue was this November's [collective sigh of sadness].
However, their recipes live on --- for free! --- at epicurious.com, which is my go-to site for recipes. It's also the home of Bon Appetit's archives, too.
The recipes are tested in their kitchens, so they are reliable, and you can search easily to get multiple variations of butternut squash soup or spaghetti carbonara.
