The Travel section journeys to Nantucket — a lively winter holiday destination during the island’s annual Christmas Stoll Weekend — in “Come, Let’s Stroll” by Annie B. Copps (page 42).

In the Home section’s main feature, “Count Your Blessings,” by Carol Connare (page 52), a family moves into a New Canaan, Connecticut, farmhouse, built in the 1800s, and become part of the town’s history, as they begin creating their own. Contributing editor Christie Matheson finds artisan-designed kitchenware and gourmet staples that make everyday meals special in “New England’s Finest” (page 62). Get crafty–make personalized cake plates to give as gifts, or to add a festive touch to any celebration, with “Inspired Ideas” by Nancy McAllister (page 66). In Yankee’s “Antiques & Collectibles” column, Catherine Riedel writes about original Bacon & Day banjos. Prized as collector items and considered the finest banjos in the world, these instruments were made in Groton, Connecticut, in the 1920s and 1930s (page 68).

In the Food section, Amy Traverso cooks with cranberries and shares both sweet and savory recipes for New England’s favorite scarlet berry: Apple-Pear-Cranberry Crostata, Coconut-Curry Stir Fry with Pork and Cranberries, Cranberry Cordial, Glazed Cranberry Tea Cakes, and Chai-Spiced Orange-Cranberry Sauce.
