DUBLIN, New Hampshire (December 18, 2008)–Yankee Magazine’s January/February issue hits newsstands December 30, 2008 and explores the many delights of winter, both indoors and outdoors.

The issue’s main travel story, “17 Ways to Winter Fun,” offers suggestions for winter events, activities, and treats that won’t cost a bundle–such as attending a winter carnival, going ice fishing, and making some tasty hot chocolate. From the serene to the extreme, Yankee also tackles snowkiting on Lake Champlain for this issue’s “Adventure” column and mountaineering on Mount Washington in “Here in New England.”

“I’m a lover of winter’s possibilities, and I hope our pages stir in you some forgotten memories of how much fun, and how beautiful, these days can be,” says Yankee editor Mel Allen. “I hope the January/February issue reminds you how lucky we are to feel the nip of the north wind every now and again.”

Comfort foods soothe and nourish hardy New Englanders as the mercury dips. Yankee Magazine’s food editor, Annie B. Copps, shares some of her favorites in “Taking Comfort.” The Food section also cooks up a chili recipe from an award-winning master of the genre (page 72), plus buttery vegetables and pastries (page 74), and names New England’s best five chocolate makers.

“Food moves us all in different ways, and just about everyone has his or her idea of ‘comfort food.’ It could be a recipe that as you prepare it, lets memories of a long-passed grandparent bubble to the forefront of your consciousness,” writes Annie. “Perhaps it’s the texture of a certain food that fills and warms you like a blanket.”

    I just called the number in the magazine and spoke with Ella. I am guessing this had something to do with the ice storm. The number works now! I’ll email you with some more details.
