The Food section serves up foolproof new recipes for Thanksgiving, from a dry-brined bird to pumpkin ice-cream pie, and a selection of favorite side dishes in “Tradition with a Twist,” by Amy Traverso (p. 52). Edie Clark writes about this issue’s “Best Cook in Town,” Shelley Osborne of West Peterborough, New Hampshire, who tempts us with her trifle recipe that is surprisingly easy to make (p. 58). In “Homegrown,” by Aimee Seavey, Bo Muller-Moore, a savvy Vermont artist-turned-marketer, inspires people to “Eat More Kale” with his T-shirt designs; and a recipe from the Harrisville General Store makes you ask for seconds (p. 62). Plus, a delicious sampler of recipes from Yankee’s Lost and Vintage Recipes, on sale now (p. 66).

In the Home section’s “All Is Merry and Bright,” delight in the dazzling colorful handmade crafts and vintage decorations on display at Christine Chitnis’ home—and follow her simple instructions to create your own colorful homespun crafts and vintage decorations (p. 42). In “New England’s Finest,” locally crafted foods and beverages make tasty—and tasteful—holiday gifts (p. 48). Catherine Riedel’s “Antiques & Collectibles” column studies silhouettes, which served as affordable portraits for early New Englanders. Today, their “basic black” simplicity has a timeless appeal and value’s range from $200 to $2,000 apiece (p. 50).

And, in the Travel section’s “Finding Christmas in Portsmouth,” senior editor Ian Aldrich explores New Hampshire’s graceful city by the sea as it celebrates the holidays with caroling, candlelight, and old-fashioned festivities (p 34).
