I hope something fun is cookin’ in yours this weekend. If you haven’t read it yet, make sure to pick up this week’s issue. The Jenni Kayne Ranch is on our real estate cover, and our annual salute to Local Heroes — a selection of some of the remarkable individuals that make our community special — is worth a good, long, relaxing read. Maybe with your feet up. In the kitchen.
