The May issue marks our 27th anniversary. We have shared with you the best of Arkansas, from its artists to its chefs, restaurants and cuisine, and its tales from the mysterious to the fascinating. Each month, it’s our pleasure to bring you stories with substance and meaning. This month, we celebrate mothers with recipes from two of Little Rock’s most popular bakeries: Brown Sugar Bakeshop & Dempsey Bakery. We hope you’ll try your hand at whipping up a treat for your mom. We also review the always-wonderful James at the Mill, a restaurant in Johnson, Arkansas. Be sure to check this month’s Dwell section for an adorable nursery, tips for mixing it up in your garden and a beautiful home built by one of this year’s Powerful Women. Also, we introduce 2 new features: Travel Arkansas & Historical Gems. These stories highlight Arkansas’ music festivals and the World War II-era Rohwer Japanese American Relocation Center. Thank you for joining us on this amazing venture we call AY Magazine!
