This ready-for winter February issue is filled with beautiful photos and stories. Our genius kitchen team has created a collection of one-skillet recipes, redesigning all your favourite comfort foods to be made within one pot (less cleanup!). Plus, there are fresh and fast recipes for weeknight meals, and a spectacular banana-caramel cream pie that will have you on cloud nine. If the guilt of comfort food is getting too heavy, we’ve included a smart ingredient swap feature to add flavour and reduce fat in all these decadent classics.
Our consistently fashion-forward style team has been keeping an eye on upcoming spring trends and they’ve remodelled runway fashion to fit our everyday wardrobes. We’ve also rounded up the latest and greatest in makeup foundation and everything you’ll need to improve your face’s skin after a harsh winter. Add elegance to your bedroom on a small budget with our bedroom makeover checklist (all under $1,000!). Also in the home decor area, we’ve got tips from Toronto design firm Feasby & Bleeks to add colour to your home.
The February issue features the runner up in our writing contest from the summer. Myrna Dey tells the gripping story of dealing with her husband’s dementia. Meanwhile, Marci O’Connor writes a first-hand account of finding new friends in your 30s and 40s (using a friend matchmaking website!). We’re always looking for stories that matter to Canadians, and in this issue, we’ve brought you an insightful feature on how in this digital age humiliation, bullying, and sexual harassment has morphed into a new form of public shaming. And don’t miss the powerful story from CBC’s Dr. Brian Goldman as he experiences the Canadian healthcare system — from a patient’s perspective. Find all these stories — and sexy Valentine’s Day ideas — in the latest issue of Chatelaine. Over the next month, we’ll bring you all of this February 2015 content online as well.
