Coleto Creek — more than a hideaway for ‘snowbirds’

Arriving at the headquarter facility of Coleto Creek Reservoir and Park, and while waiting to speak with one of the folks there to get information, another guest came in to make his reservation for his favorite campsite -- “a year from now.” I asked the man behind the counter if that was typical. “You betcha,” was his answer.

Pumpkin Bread w/Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Bread w/Cream Cheese Frosting

Tammy Rakowski, formerly Bounds, has lived in La Vernia for 12 years and is the secretary at La Vernia Christian Teaching Center and Agape Christian Academy. Autumn is her favorite season and she loves the smell of pumpkin bread baking in the oven! It reminds her that fall has arrived and the holidays are soon approaching. Although her mother generally made this during the holiday season, it is great any time of the year. At Christmas, she would divide the batter into mini loaf pans, wrap the loaves in red or green cellophane, tie with a ribbon, and give as gifts. Tammy follows the tradition with her own personal flair and her daughter after her as well. She prefers a healthier version without the cream cheese frosting! Full Story »
