STEPHAINE MARCHESE, VISUAL PRODUCTION DIRECTOR
For everything from simmering homemade stock to making Thanksgiving stuffing, it’s time to head to the kitchen! Here are more of my favorite fall activities:
Every October my family and I love to attend our community’s Great Pumpkin Festival. Anyone is welcome to pick out a pumpkin, carve it on-site and enjoy good food and music. It’s a fun way to get into the mood for Halloween and visit with friends and neighbors. My brother and I swap hosting Thanksgiving every year. Even when we’re not celebrating at our house, I still like to make lots of my family’s favorite dishes. But to switch things up this year, I’m going to try the slightly spicy Pepper Jack Hash Brown Casserole on page 78. This is the perfect time to simmer apple cider with mulling spices. It tastes great, warms you up on cooler days and makes the house smell amazing, too! Just light a fire in the fireplace and there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.
