And just like that, crackling leaves are right under foot and we’re surrounded by the most beautiful hues of crimson, burnt orange, and gold! If you’re like me, you think this season is way too short. I just love the richness that fall brings to our everyday lives.

This time of year also makes me want to cook the comfort food my mother always made, including one of my favorites from childhood—good ol’ fashioned chunky potato soup. Over the years, I’ve put my own spin on it, but the foundation is still very traditional and the recipe requires few ingredients. Scan the QR code above for my family recipe.

If you’re not much for cooking from scratch, check out this issue’s Harvest story on soup kits. The kits offer an easy, convenient way to prepare a warm meal in no time. They also make great holiday gifts.

Of course, it’s also football season and everything that goes with that. (Think chili and cornbread, corn hole games, and so much fun!) 

Gone are the days of hosting football parties in dark man caves. Homeowners today are opting for light and airy spaces decked out with all the bells and whistles for entertaining—even mini wine cellars under the steps.

Check out our stories on two outstanding basements, the Ringenbergs’ lower level, and our ASID Award feature.

Make the most of this season. Cook up some comfort food and curl up in a soft throw, or host a fall gameday with friends and family. Cherish these moments—they’re fleeting!
