Born and bred in New Jersey, I somehow developed a fascination with New England. So I came to college in Boston and subscribed to Yankee magazine. Yankee, which is marking its 75th year in 2010, is the official magazine of New England, and I was a subscriber for decades. That is, until a few years ago when the publication re-conceived itself as a blah house magazine, hoping to lure more readers. I promptly stopped my subscription. More recently, the magazine has returned to its roots with the contents I’ve always loved — stories about New England. But that’s not to say Yankee hasn’t entered the 21st century. This month’s issue features recipes from the LimeRock Inn in Rockland, Maine, owned by gay couple P.J. Walter and Frank Isganitis.
