On Pumpkin Spice
and Everything Nice
This season breathes pumpkin spice - its warm, nutty essence infusing
our coffees, cakes, candles and more. It is fall's signature flavor, festive and
comforting as cooler days float in and the holidays approach. And speaking of
comfort, this issue is all about it. It's our food issue, offering something for every
appetite. Here are a few good reasons to cozy up to this edition.
Villagers share their family recipes and the histories behind a beloved dish
on the Thanksgiving table: stuffing. Diane Kupchak's Pennsylvania Dutch
potato bread stuffing is a simple-yet-savory example. Vincent Tekippe gave us his
Cajun variation, a spicy sausage-based dish. And there's more, but don't fill up
on dressing because other culinary treasures await. Chefs share food and drink
recipes from local country clubs and hot spots. Don't you wish the pictures were
scratch and sniff?
And whether you're hosting a large family gathering or entertaining a single
friend, you can give your guests a visual feast with our holiday how-to guide.
In this special feature, decorating duo Rosalyn Housely - owner of the Rustic
Rose Home Accents & Gifts in Brownwood - and friend Renee Cox help us set a
stylish table. See how they incorporate the rich colors of fall with various accents
to bring whimsy and warmth to the table. Find tips on layering placemats,
chargers, plates and accents to create an attractive and functional setting. With a
few creative touches, you can make any meal more memorable.
Those looking for outdoor adventure will find plenty in the Village of Fenney.
The exciting new 18-hole putting course is accompanied by lawn bowling,
croquet, a scenic walking path and a fully stocked fishing pond. It's an aesthetic
outdoor jewel and a mature take on miniature golf. Find out what Ken Ezell, the
brains behind the greens, had to say about this beautifully designed course even
non-golfers are enjoying.
Giving thanks for the bounty is a holiday tradition. But some Villagers give
more through acts of service. Their volunteer efforts put meals on the table for
the less fortunate among us. The Wildwood Soup Kitchen feeds as many as 300
people daily, Monday through Saturday. Paul Danis has been an integral part
of the crew for more than a decade, and Village of Belvedere residents Diane
and Dana McCarthy also are longtime volunteers who have worked a weekly
shift for 14 years. "They give up their own family dinners to be here," kitchen
manager Donna Slider said. Learn more about their ministry and how you can
give to the cause.
There's so much more to love in this issue, and we hope the recipes and stories
will leave you inspired in this season of pumpkin spice and everything nice.
Happy feasting and warmest thanks for reading.
