CUCUMBER SALAD

INGREDIENTS 2 medium-sized cucumbers 1 tsp salt 1/4 cup red onion, finely minced 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced DRESSING 1/4 cup Greek yogurt 1/8 cup grated cucumber 1 tbs dried dill 1 tbs red or white wine vinegar 1 tbs honey 1 tsp salt 1 tsp ground black pepper Water (if needed)

DIRECTIONS 1. Place thinly sliced cucumbers in a colander, and sprinkle with salt, tossing to salt all slices. Let rest for 10 minutes.

2. Make the dressing by whisking together all the dressing ingredients. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste. Let the dressing sit for 5 minutes, and then thin-out with a splash of water if the yogurt is too thick. 3. Drain the salted cucumber by gently blotting with paper towels until dry. Transfer to a mixing bowl, along with the minced garlic and onion. Toss the dressing, cucumber slices, onion and garlic together until all of the slices are coated. Let rest for 5 minutes and you’re ready to serve.

REISLING

Baked Pears From the Kitchen of Eric Hill – aka “Chicken” Executive Sous Chef The Steakhouse at Flying Horse

INGREDIENTS 4 ripe pears, preferably Bosc, with stems, washed and dried 2 cups Riesling or other fruity white wine 1/4 cup honey 4 cinnamon sticks 4 bay leaves 4 strips orange zest, (see Tips & Notes) PREPARATION 1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 2. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear, so they will stand upright. Arrange the pears in a 9- to 10-inch pie pan or similar baking dish. Whisk wine and honey in a medium bowl until well blended; pour over the pears. Add cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and orange zest to the wine mixture around the pears. 3. Roast the pears, basting every 15 minutes, until they are wrinkled and tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the type of pear used. 4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the pears to shallow dessert bowls. Pour the wine mixture into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil until slightly thickened, about 6 minutes. Drizzle over the pears and garnish with the cinnamon sticks, bay leaves and orange zest. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled. TIPS & NOTES Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Tip: Scrub the orange first—and if it’s an organic orange, so much the better—then use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of orange zest, leaving behind any of the bitter white pith.

The Copperleaf Homes Difference As an owner of Copperleaf Homes (yes, I’m writing this – not some slick marketing company), I’m often asked: What makes you unique in the marketplace of custom home building? This excites me because I cannot think of a more pertinent question to ask than that – for the way a builder responds to this one seminal question is everything. And in answering this question, I cannot hold back my enthusiasm and love for the home building industry and the honor we feel to be a part of it. Briefly, here is the Copperleaf difference: For starters, we’ll tell you up front what our standard price per square foot is AND then we’ll give you both a list in writing and picture form of the standard included features that we’ll put in your home at that price-point. With us, you’ll never have to guess what you’re getting for the price. And we hold to that price – in over a decade of building not once have we passed along a cost overrun to one of our buyers. Additionally, what you will quickly discover is that the interior finishes that are standard with us, are upgrades with other builders: 10’ ceiling heights in the lower level/basement, environmentally speaking – a green home; technologically speaking – a smart home with the latest technology. Bosch high-end appliances will adorn your kitchen and hand troweled walls will set your home in motion. And as you’ll discover, there are many more highend finishes and features included as standard in our base pricing. As well, when you build with Copperleaf Homes you will have more people overseeing and working with you to complete your build than any smaller builder could ever offer. The capstone of this is our concierge service where you will be accompanied by one of our on-staff, award-winning designers, to all of your design center appointments. The stress this relieves is truly immeasurable. Imagine having an expert with you to coordinate colors, styles and finishes. And here’s the biggest difference of all: With Copperleaf Homes you’ll get your home designed, be given a fixed price to complete it and have the comfort of knowing exactly what you’re getting for this price ALL BEFORE I/we ask you to give us a deposit or sign a contract. We put our time and money to work before asking you for yours. Add it all together and the Copperleaf Homes experience truly is unique in the home building industry. Nobody does it like we do. Nobody. Steve Neary Partner/Owner

association. Next time you’re tempted to leave your dog’s droppings on the lawn, please remember some of these facts: • The Environmental Protection Agency is becoming aggressive about enforcing the Clean Water Act. Our association could be fined if dog waste goes uncollected. • Uncollected dog waste may lead to a special assessment. If fined by the EPA, the association could face a potential special assessment that would be levied against all members— not just dog owners. • The appearance and quality of the common areas are known to affect home sales—not just whether and for how much they sell, but how quickly. • The more residents complain about dog waste, the more time the manager must spend on enforcement rather than serving the association. • Uncollected dog waste spreads disease and attracts rodents who feed on pet waste.

• A space heater needs space—keep it at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn. • Place the heater on a hard, level, nonflammable surface (not on a rug, carpet, table, or countertop). • Do not use heaters with frayed insulation, cracked or frayed cords, or that overheat. • Keep the heater’s cord away from high-traffic areas where people could walk or trip over it. • Avoid using extension cords, but if you must, make sure it’s the right wire gauge size/type for your heater. • When using liquid-fueled space heaters, use only the fuel recommended by the manufacturer. Before refueling, turn the space heater off and let it cool down completely. Wipe up any spills right away. • Turn the space heater off when you leave the building, are not in the room, or are sleeping. • Supervise children and pets at all times when space heaters are in use.
