Yankee Magazine's January/February Issue Embraces Classic Winter Days - - Both Indoors and Outdoors
DUBLIN, New Hampshire (January 3, 2011) — Yankee Magazine’s January/February 2011 issue embraces the extremes of winter in New England — from tips on surviving the outside elements to braising recipes that explore the joys of slow cooking inside a cozy home.
“This issue is about the ‘ins and outs’ of winter,” writes editor Mel Allen. “As you turn the pages, you’ll find New Englanders who still dream of snow and the biting blue winter sky. But not everyone will want to trek along backcountry trails or find delight in outdoor winter festivities, no matter how much fun others seem to have. That’s where the winter’s subtle indoor pleasures come in — like the inner glow of a good, warming meal, for instance.”
