Jan/Feb 2015 Issue - Ringing in the New Year!

Jan 21, 2015 11:18AM, Published by Kevin, Categories: In Print



We're smack dab in the middle of the winter season. It's a time for resolutions and new beginnings. Mansfield Magazine hits homes with more promises of great local coverage and things to do in your beloved city. We start by spotlighting Mansfield tourism manager Theresa Cohagen. She's done a lot for Mansfield, including her most recent attempt to bring The Daytripper to town.

Next, Carol Ritchie joined us for another installment of Cookin' With Carol - this time preparing some easy dishes you can throw together quickly: pastas, rice, soups and stews! Not only do they save you time, but they make the house smell wonderful. We also prepared an online exclusive, which gives some great ideas for these types of dishes if you're adventurous enough.

Still don't have enough time to get everything done? Look no further, as Laurie Fox visited with many local specialists: time-saving tips included! Once you've employed these services in your daily schedule, make sure you check out our events calendar to use that newfound time. Spend it with your family and friends.

Our Local Flavor piece this edition features Big D Barbecue, which has been around for just under two years. In addition, we show you what local Yelpers have to say and encourage you to leave a review of the hot spot in our directory. We highlight nearby restaurants too.

The Your Neighbor feature in this edition highlights a local author and illustrator duo, who showcase their latest masterpiece. We even posted a web-exclusive extension of the interview for you to enjoy.

Browse around for articles and information on everything you need to know about the local community and let us know what you’d like to see more of!
