The Home section includes an article about Don DiMugno and his passion for the past; he’s a lifelong collector of memorabilia, and within his 2,000-square-foot home, new barn, and garage, he displays his precious collectibles. “Inspired Ideas” explains how to make easy terrariums (page 70). “How’d They Do That?” shows how to turn old skis into a brand-new chair (page 74). “Antiques & Collectibles” features the Paris Manufacturing Company’s sleds, and takes a glide down memory lane (page 72).

In the Food section, “Inn Good Company” joins a group of Maine innkeepers who get down to business over a hearty breakfast; the story includes a selection of their delicious recipes (page 76). Also in this issue, Penny Despres, Yankee’s “Best Cook in Town,” shares her special recipe for French Canadian meat pies (page 82), while in “Homegrown” (page 84), tiny, tasty smelts are the featured ingredient.


“Here in New England,” by Mel Allen (page 16): Brattleboro, Vermont’s most famous landmark, the Harris Hill Ski Jump, seemed destined to die, but a dedicated group of townspeople developed a creative solution.

“First Light,” by Jim Collins (page 22): Trains have always had a hold on our imaginations — and they may also play an integral part in New England’s future.

“The Best 5: Ski Cruisers,” by Ben Hewitt (page 30): Yankee names the top cruising trails at New England ski areas.

    I tried to get a copy of all of the recipes that you had under Inn Good Company. None of the recipes were shown in complete form. All were cut short, something is wrong.
