Magazine of Northwest Arkansas

Boston & Ozarks Magazine is an online publication devoted to home and living in Northwest Arkansas.  My name is James Kevin Connell and I am a transplant to NWA from Dallas, Texas and I am the editor-in-chief and publisher. After seventeen years here, it is surely my home. If you love every minute here as much as I do, I think you will enjoy what we bring you in Boston & Ozarks Magazine. 

From things for the home, to recipes, outdoor living, lawn & garden and the arts, we try and give you a well-rounded look at the possibilities for those of us that call Northwest Arkansas home.

How regal is this? Pantone, world authority on color, has decreed that this, Ultra Violet, is their 2018 Color of the Year. For those of us that just know we are of royal blood, a shower curtain (and accessories) this color would all but b prove it. A touch of scarlet trim and you are Majesty! Note to self: Get the bathrobe, too. A little Handel should complete the experience. You may kiss the ring. Click HERE for more.

"From the" Gotta Try It" Files...

We had never heard of it - but we gotta try it! How about preserved lemons?  Writer Hank Shaw explains the impressive history of this uncommon treatment of this citrus. BY the way, these treatments work for limes, too.  It looks like the Moroccans get top billing for preserving lemons, but the Indians and even the British and early Americans used this method, too. Hank gives recipes for them: Russian Pickled Lemons, Moroccan or American Preserved Lemons and the Indian Method. See the article HERE.
