Style Magazine: March 2019

If your idea of exotic eating is ordering orange chicken at Panda Express, keep reading. Starting on page 43, Luna Anona takes you around the world (Afghanistan, El Salvador, Germany, Korea, Peru, and the list goes on) for a roundup of international eateries that are all found in our region—ultimately encouraging you to “Stay Local, Eat Global.” For each restaurant—50-plus of them—she guides you through the country’s respective cuisine and suggests a must-try menu item. Think of it as a passport for your palate and make it your mission to devour, or at least try, every single dish. Whether you find a new favorite food or not, you’ll have supported a small business and hopefully walked away with a new understanding and appreciation for a different type of dining. If you’re still hungry for more, flip to our newly expanded Eat & Drink section for a write-up about Milestone’s beloved brunch (page 84); the area’s top pub grub (page 87); and an overview of the coolest coffee shops, including an Italian-inspired café that pumps out some seriously pretty pastries (page 86). In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we present “3 Irish-Inspired Recipes” (page 88), including cookies made with pistachio pudding that are Style-tested and approved (true story: two dozen of them disappeared from our office in mere minutes!) and 7 must-try stouts from area breweries (page 90). And if all the aforementioned food has your stomach making unsavory sounds (everything in moderation, right?), fret not; turn to page 67 for an article about gut health and “The Benefits of Bacteria.” There’s plenty more in the pages that follow, so dig in and make it a March to remember. Cheers!

Giving Back: Single Mom Strong<br />

In just over two years, local nonprofit Single Mom Strong has helped hundreds of single<br />

mothers and their children flourish by empowering them through education, enrichment,<br />

and educational programs. Inspiration for the organization came from founder and<br />

can be a professional success and a great parent despite what society says.<br />

What’s the most “foreign” food you’ve ever<br />

eaten? For me, it’s a tie between sheep’s cheek<br />

(apparently the most tender part) and fermented<br />

shark. Both bites (yes, one of each was all I<br />

could stomach) happened while nannying in<br />

Iceland. Though neither had me rushing to get<br />

the recipes, the simple act of stepping out of my<br />

cuisine comfort zone gave me an entirely new<br />

insight into the country’s culture—and made for<br />

some pretty epic pictures, too.<br />

On a tastier note, the family also introduced me<br />

to skyr, a ridiculously thick and creamy yogurt that’s<br />

low in fat and incredibly high in protein; Brennivín, a<br />

caraway-flavored liquor that’s akin to drinking boozy<br />

black licorice; and the Icelandic hot dog (pylsa)—made<br />

from organic, grass-fed, free-range, hormone-free (insert<br />

all other positive meat modifiers) lamb and served on a<br />

steamed bun with crispy fried onions, raw white onions,<br />

rémoulade, ketchup, and sweet brown mustard—that,<br />

“frank”ly, was the most delicious dog I’ve ever had.<br />

If your idea of exotic eating is ordering orange chicken<br />

at Panda Express, keep reading. Starting on page 43, Luna<br />

Anona takes you around the world (Afghanistan, El<br />

Salvador, Germany, Korea, Peru, and the list goes on) for<br />

WHAT'S THE<br />




“Meeting a beautiful young woman,<br />

who—seven years later—said ‘yes’<br />

to my proposal. Fast forward and<br />

we're a few months away from our<br />

39th wedding anniversary.”<br />

—Reg Holliday<br />

"Being hired by <strong>Style</strong> Media Group<br />

in 2005. Will this get me a raise?"<br />

—Debra Linn<br />

“Getting pregnant with my son, Jake. My<br />

husband and I had just gotten married<br />

and were unsure about starting a<br />

family right away. While in the midst<br />

of analyzing our life, our goals, and<br />

our timing, the universe gave us<br />

the most perfect baby, at the most<br />

perfect time, in the most perfect<br />

way. He's my <strong>March</strong> baby and<br />

will always and forever be my lucky<br />

charm.”—Aimee Carroll<br />

’18<br />

“My parents winning a visa from<br />

a lottery to live and work in the<br />

U.S.”—Gabriel Ionica<br />

“I swam on the community swim team every<br />

summer in grade school. One year, I met<br />

a girl in my lane, we instantly clicked,<br />

and did everything together. At<br />

summer’s end, we promised we’d<br />

always be friends, but I didn't see<br />

her again for years. As luck would<br />

have it, however, we were seated<br />

next to each other on the first day<br />

of seventh grade. We've been best<br />

friends ever since.”<br />

—Isabella De Garza<br />

“When I won a trip to the Bahamas<br />

during a fundraiser at my daughter’s<br />

school. The prize included<br />

accommodations at Atlantis<br />

Paradise Island Resort and<br />

airfare.”—Jami Areia<br />

“On June 30, 1967, my widowed mother with<br />

three boys married my stepfather—also<br />

widowed with three boys. I wouldn’t<br />

have believed it then, but having a<br />

fireman-marine-ex-professional<br />

baseball player come into our life<br />

and being part of an all-boy Brady<br />

Bunch was like winning the lottery<br />

(only our fights were a little more<br />

rambunctious). Luck or providence?<br />

Either way, I’m grateful.”<br />

—Lorn Randall<br />

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber but low in calories,<br />

eating a diet rich in these nutrient-dense veggies can reduce your<br />

risk of obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure, in addition to<br />

In 2005, Auburn resident Jenny Davidson’s<br />

life was changed forever. Her son, Jordan,<br />

was born with trisomy 18, a rare genetic<br />

abnormality, and passed away after just 32<br />

hours of life. While it was a terrible time for her<br />

family, Davidson now credits the experience<br />

with strengthening her resolve to make a<br />

positive impact on her community. “I needed<br />

to know I was making the world a better place<br />

for the children who get to stay,” she recalls.<br />

Davidson is now the CEO and executive<br />

director of Stand Up Placer, a nonprofit that<br />

provides crucial intervention and support<br />

for victims of domestic violence, sexual<br />

assault, and human trafficking. She was also<br />

“I needed to know I<br />

was making the world<br />

a better place for the<br />

children who get to stay.”<br />

Q&A<br />

What advice would you give to your<br />

younger self?<br />

Don’t put off getting your education.<br />

What comes to you naturally?<br />

I’m a natural-born learner. I love pursuing personal<br />

growth and expanding my knowledge base.<br />

What’s your biggest pet peeve?<br />

Closed-mindedness.<br />

Jenny Davidson<br />

Biggest life inspirations?<br />

My sons. I want to be the superhero they<br />

think I am.<br />

Best words of wisdom you’ve received?<br />

Your trauma doesn’t define you. You<br />

define you. It will change you, but you get<br />

to decide what the change is; you get to<br />

choose to survive.<br />

one of only eight women in the U.S. who<br />

made the BBC 100 Women 2018 list, which<br />

celebrates female leaders, trailblazers, and<br />

everyday heroes from around the world<br />

who influence and inspire others. She’s<br />

especially passionate about providing safe,<br />

comfortable, and confidential housing—not<br />

only to survivors of domestic abuse, but<br />

also their pets, and explains that many<br />

victims stay in abusive environments out of<br />

reluctance to leave their pets behind with<br />

an abuser. As a result of her efforts, Stand<br />

Up Placer is now pet-friendly, and she hopes<br />

other shelters will follow suit. For Davidson,<br />

the best part of it all is being able to honor<br />

Jordan by helping others get a new lease<br />

on life. “We get to choose how trauma will<br />

affect our lives,” she explains, adding, “My<br />

son still makes a difference every day I get up<br />

and go to work.”<br />

Stand Up Placer’s annual fundraiser, Stand<br />

Up and Dance, will take place on <strong>March</strong> 23 at<br />

Orchard Creek Lodge from 6-10 p.m. For more<br />

FRI–SUN APR 5–7<br />

OMG! Based on the beloved movie, Legally Blonde - The Musical is a journey<br />

from the sorority house to the halls of justice. Elle Woods appears to have<br />

it all, until her boyfriend dumps her to attend Harvard Law. Driven by<br />

memorable songs and explosive dances, Legally Blonde - The Musical<br />

warms the heart, “a high-energy… hymn to the glories of girlishness”<br />

One of the world’s most distinctive singing voices, Michael McDonald is<br />

often imitated but never duplicated. He’s had enough humility over the<br />

years to freely blend that voice with others, whether as a member of Steely<br />

Dan, a Doobie Brother, as a highly successful solo artist and songwriter,a<br />

member of the supergroup the Dukes of September; or, recently, reaching<br />

the Coachella generation as a celebrated co-star on Thundercat’s indie hit<br />

“Show You the Way.”<br />

With 10 Tony ® nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten!<br />

is “Broadway’s big, fat hit!” (New York Post). Set in 1595, this hilarious<br />

smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are<br />

desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare<br />

keeps getting all the hits. “The Producers + Spamalot + The Book of<br />

ask the experts<br />

Q: How do you determine the best<br />

size bed for your pet?<br />

A: Make sure you know the<br />

measurements of the bed you’re<br />

interested in and compare them to<br />

something you can easily measure<br />

against in your house. Sometimes it’s<br />

difficult to purely imagine how big<br />

something is by measuring, say a couch<br />

cushion, so comparing those to the bed<br />

will you give a better idea of its size.<br />

Measuring the space your dog uses when<br />

they sleep will give you a good idea as to<br />

how much room they need, too.<br />

Q: How often should you practice<br />

while learning a new instrument?<br />

A: We suggest a minimum of 15 minutes<br />

(or more) each day to yield better<br />

results in instrument development. For<br />

students who are in school, we suggest<br />

saving math homework for last and<br />

practicing the instrument first, since<br />

the same parts of the brain are being<br />

stimulated during math and<br />

music. Every new student<br />

goes through a honeymoon<br />

phase in which<br />

they’re fascinated<br />

with their new<br />

instrument. As the<br />

student develops and learns<br />

new and more difficult material,<br />

however, everything becomes<br />

more challenging. This is where<br />

the discipline of practicing<br />

every day (Monday-Friday) helps<br />

students grow on a consistent basis.<br />

Single Mom<br />

Strong<br />

Helping Women Find Their Wings<br />


Can women "have it all?" Not easily if they’re single<br />

moms, says Tara Taylor, founder and executive director<br />

of the nonprofit Single Mom Strong, which supports<br />

women raising children alone. According to census<br />

data, that’s one-quarter of all households in the<br />

Sacramento area—households that often struggle to<br />

provide their children with basic needs.<br />

As a single mother herself for 18 years, now<br />

remarried, Taylor dug into her own life to develop a<br />

program that would offer the personal and professional support she knows<br />

could have benefited her and her daughter. "I thought about my experiences<br />

and challenges and wanted to find a way to make it easier for other moms,"<br />

she says. In just two years, Single Mom Strong has undertaken an impressive<br />

agenda of activities, and 240 single mothers have participated in at least one<br />

of them. What’s more, there are no dues or attendance requirements either. "If<br />

something interests you, [you can] just come on out," Taylor says.<br />

The organization kicked off in December 2016 with an Adopt-a-Family<br />

24 stylemg.com | MARCH <strong>2019</strong> | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

event that provided holiday gifts to single<br />

moms and their kids, an activity that has<br />

continued annually. "The holidays can<br />

be overwhelming," Taylor says. "A lot of<br />

moms go into debt for their kids." This past<br />

December, the group gave presents to 16<br />

families and, from the generous donations,<br />

had enough toys for four more families.<br />

On Valentine’s Day this year—"a day<br />

that can be tough for single moms"—the<br />

group held a kid-friendly Love Your Life<br />

celebration, featuring a gourmet meal,<br />

champagne, and guest speakers.<br />

Single Mom Strong’s core program<br />

consists of a minimum of four events per<br />

month, with childcare provided where<br />

needed, and include:<br />

MOTHER AND CHILD: An activity such<br />

as roller skating or visiting the zoo that<br />

promotes affordable bonding time with<br />

children and one another.<br />

MOM’S NIGHT OUT: A fun evening to give<br />

single moms a much-needed break.<br />


offering moms resources and life skills,<br />

such as goal setting. time management, and<br />

self-defense. Taylor, a life coach, leads some<br />

of the classes, while other single mothers<br />

and industry professionals lead ones in<br />

their respective areas of expertise.<br />

New programs set to start this year include:<br />


positive, caring male role models for the<br />

children. Men are trained and commit to<br />

one activity per month.<br />

SUMMER CAMPS: Helps solve the problem<br />

of finding summer day care with affordable<br />

weeklong camps based around different<br />

themes; expected to open in June.<br />


DAY CARE: Single Mom Strong's new<br />

home in Citrus Heights, slated to open in<br />

May, features an atrium with an indoor<br />

playground. The day care center, open from<br />

6:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m. for full-time or dropin<br />

needs, is staffed by a paid teacher and<br />

parent volunteers.<br />

What else is in store for the future?<br />

According to Taylor, expansion to other<br />

cities. “There’s nothing like Single Mom<br />

Strong anywhere else in the country.”<br />

She’s already developing a manual for<br />

starting other chapters. If it seems like<br />

she’s moving fast, it's because she has to.<br />

“I’m trying to keep up with the speed of<br />

my dreams.”<br />

Spotlight on<br />

Bruce<br />

Gruenzel<br />


Born and raised<br />

in Wisconsin,<br />

painter and current<br />

Placerville resident Bruce<br />

Gruenzel has been enthralled<br />

by the ocean ever since he<br />

first laid eyes upon it. His<br />

affinity for it runs so deep, in<br />

fact, that seascapes—and their<br />

varying colors and moods—<br />

are often the main themes<br />

of his work. “My respect for<br />

the ocean’s movements and<br />

force was further instilled<br />

during the 15 years I spent<br />

as a lifeguard [in] Southern<br />

California,” shares Gruenzel. “I<br />

hope to bring the excitement<br />

of those experiences to the<br />

canvas.” Both self-taught<br />

and professionally instructed<br />

at the New Renaissance<br />

Academy School of Living<br />

Oils on Whidbey Island in<br />

Washington—where he dove<br />

deep into color theory and<br />

composition, developing the<br />

foundation for his current<br />

technique of painting in<br />

multiple layers to create<br />

greater depth—Gruenzel’s<br />

work can be viewed at Gold<br />

Country Artists’ Gallery (379<br />

Main Street) in Placerville.<br />

MARCH <strong>2019</strong> | stylemg.com 39

HLB: When did you discover your talent and passion for art?<br />

BG: I became interested in art as a child [and would draw] whatever<br />

came into my head. Encouraged by my grandfather and parents, I<br />

learned how to accept suggestions and critiques early on. I never<br />

really lost this passion, but school and sports kept me busy during<br />

my teenage years, so I was only able to occasionally create pencil<br />

and charcoal drawings.<br />

HLB: How did seeing the ocean for the first time influence your<br />

work?<br />

BG: When I came to California in the mid-’50s and saw the ocean,<br />

it was a great visual inspiration. Even though there were waves on<br />

Lake Michigan where I was raised, the ocean was certainly on a<br />

grander scale with the rock formations, the crashing waves, and<br />

the ever-changing array of colors in the ebb and flow of the water.<br />

[Around that time], I received a Grumbacher oil painting set as a gift.<br />

Not having any experience with the medium, I purchased several<br />

Walter Foster books and was immediately hooked.<br />

HLB: Why are you drawn to oil and what are its challenges?<br />

BG: I love painting in oils because the fluidity of the medium allows<br />

me to blend and feather the colors with little separation, especially<br />

clouds and water. One of the major challenges is color. I have to<br />

ask myself, “What are the actual colors of the sea at this particular<br />

time?”<br />

(Top; L to R) View from Kirby Beach,<br />

Gaff Rigged Dory<br />

(Middle; L to R) Alone 2, The Searchers<br />

(Below) The Last of the Wanderer<br />

HLB: Do you have a favorite amongst your paintings?<br />

BG: Of all my works, three stand out as my favorites: The Last of the<br />

Wanderer, which was repainted several times until I was satisfied;<br />

View from Kirby Beach, because I achieved 98 percent of what I<br />

imagined; and Gaff Rigged Dory, which flowed from my brush as if<br />

it had a mind of its own.<br />

HLB: Do you have any advice for artists just starting out?<br />

BG: I recommend seeking out qualified instructors who will teach<br />

you the basics without derailing your creativity. Also, learn color.<br />

There are countless colors available, [but] start by practicing with the<br />

primary ones. Lastly, learn to accept criticism with an open mind.<br />

But above all: paint, paint, paint.<br />

Farmer’s Delicatessen<br />

& Bakery<br />

3952 Cambridge Road, Cameron<br />

Park, 530-672-6800, farmersdeli.net<br />

First-generation Hungarian-<br />

American chef and owner Christine<br />

Ondrus-Lykos grew up surrounded<br />

by flavors of her family’s homeland<br />

swirling around the kitchen, as her<br />

grandmother made strudel from<br />

scratch. Now she serves up fresh<br />

pastries, sweets, and breads, plus<br />

other hearty European bites at<br />

her very own brick-and-mortar in<br />

Cameron Park.<br />

MUST-TRY DISH: Lemon Tart (glutenfree<br />

almond flour crust filled with<br />

fresh-squeezed lemon curd)<br />

1. Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass—<br />

ingredients commonly found in<br />

Thai dishes—aren’t just delicious:<br />

They’re also medicinal. Ginger and<br />

turmeric have anti-inflammatory<br />

properties, and ginger is thought<br />

to aid in digestion and circulation.<br />

Lemongrass is reportedly an antidote<br />

for stomachaches, headaches, and<br />

even the common cold.<br />

2. Chili peppers are thought to first<br />

have been domesticated in Mexico<br />

nearly 5,000 years ago, but now<br />

China is the top producer of the<br />

chili pepper.<br />

3. While cassava hasn’t quite caught on<br />

in the U.S., it’s actually the third most<br />

popular carbohydrate on the planet.<br />

This drought-tolerant root vegetable<br />

is a major staple in much of the<br />

developing world, with Nigeria being<br />

its largest producer.<br />

4. Sushi is meant to be eaten in one<br />

bite. If you dip it in soy sauce,<br />

don’t commit the cardinal sin of<br />

leaving behind rice in the bowl or<br />

mixing together a wasabi dipping<br />

concoction. And the ginger on your<br />

plate? It’s meant as a palate cleanser.<br />

5. In the 1800s, Italy invented the<br />

Margherita (no, not margarita) pizza,<br />

named for Queen Margherita. The<br />

red tomatoes, white mozzarella,<br />

and green basil aren’t a color<br />

coincidence—they represent the<br />

colors of Italy's flag.<br />

6. Favorite pizza toppings around the<br />

world differ. In Brazil, it’s green peas.<br />

In Germany, canned tuna is popular.<br />

In India, pickled ginger and minced<br />

mutton top the list.<br />

7. Bread isn’t a traditional staple in East<br />

Asia, but Vietnam is an exception.<br />

French colonists introduced<br />

baguettes to the country, which the<br />

Vietnamese adapted. Now, you can<br />

find Vietnamese baguettes on every<br />

street corner—and in the famous<br />

sandwich: bahn mi.<br />

8. In France, approximately 500 million<br />

snails (escargot) are eaten every year.<br />

9. Traditionally, wheat noodles are the<br />

main staple of Northern Chinese<br />

diets, and rice is the main staple in<br />

the South. Noodles are also found in<br />

Southern Chinese diets, of course,<br />

but they’re typically rice noodles.<br />

10. Most people know one kind of<br />

paprika—and maybe a smoked<br />

paprika, if you’re fancy. In Hungary,<br />

there are eight different flavor<br />

profiles of paprika, ranging from<br />

sweet and mild to pungent and spicy.<br />

Health benefits are an extra benefit<br />

when enjoying the delicious and<br />

authentic Thai food served at Thai<br />

Paradise restaurant.<br />

What makes Thai food healthy is how it is<br />

cooked and the ingredients used. At Thai<br />

Paradise food is cooked with expensive and<br />

healthy rice bran oil like what is used in<br />

Thailand. Most restaurants use other oils<br />

that cost less. Thai Paradise also uses local<br />

Farm-to-Fork ingredients, fresh vegetables<br />

and meats purchased daily.<br />

The ingredients in many Thai Paradise<br />

dishes include several that are known<br />

to improve our health. Turmeric is antiinflammatory<br />

and an anti-oxidant. It aids<br />

digestion, arthritis, the heart, and may<br />

protect against bacteria and some cancers<br />

(per animal studies). Galanga is used in<br />

Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.<br />

It aids digestion, inflammation, arthritis<br />

and ulcers. Lemongrass is also used in<br />

Chinese medicine for flus and colds, fevers,<br />

headaches, arthritis, fungal infections and<br />

stomach conditions. Coriander aids digestive<br />

and gastrointestinal problems, and bacterial<br />

and fungal infections. Chilies aid sleep, the<br />

heart, and healthy insulin and glucose levels.<br />

Coconut Milk contains good fat, lowers<br />

bad cholesterol, promotes good cholesterol,<br />

boosts immunity, modulates metabolic<br />

functions, provides valuable fatty acids and<br />

fights aging.<br />

Thai Paradise uses all of these ingredients<br />

and many more and is the only Thai<br />

restaurant in the area cooking with healthy<br />

rice bran oil. Their healthy dishes, like Pad<br />

Thai, Tom Yum, Papaya Salad, Red Green<br />

and Yellow Curry, and Spring Rolls (all<br />

shown) are among the list of Thai foods<br />

recommended by Registered Dieticians.<br />

Michael Krick<br />


Elite personal training, holistic lifestyle<br />

coaching, small group training, and<br />

online programs.<br />


PROFESSION: As a young adult, I had a<br />

dream that I would be able to change<br />

the world. I carried that dream into<br />

adulthood and now find myself excited<br />

to get up each and every day. I have<br />

the privilege of being able to change<br />

client’s lives in a concrete way, because<br />

I’m able to accurately measure their<br />

progress. There’s no greater joy than<br />

knowing I’ve helped an individual live<br />

a richer, healthier, and more rewarding<br />

life—whether that be adding years to<br />

their lifespan, helping them keep up<br />

with their grandchildren, or finishing a<br />

race. Their dreams become my reality<br />

and helping people reach their goals is<br />

incredibly rewarding.<br />


COMPANY: KrickFit started as a mobile<br />

personal training business. I would<br />

drive to client’s homes or meet them<br />

outside in a park.<br />

FIRST JOB: My first job was as a server.<br />

I believe everyone should hold a job in<br />

the restaurant or service industry at<br />

some point in their life—it teaches grit.<br />

FAVORITE FOOD: I'm not a picky guy,<br />

but we eat very clean in our house. As<br />

a special treat, it would have to be pizza<br />

or sushi.<br />

LAST BIG PURCHASE: A few months<br />

ago, my wife and I traded in our minivan<br />

for a Toyota 4Runner. We needed a<br />

four-wheel drive vehical and plan on<br />

taking advantage of our proximity to the<br />

mountains.<br />


FIND ME: At home. As I've gotten older,<br />

I've become a homebody. I love doing<br />

simple projects around the house and<br />

spending time with my wife and young<br />

children. When not at home, you'll find me<br />

outdoors—hiking, snowboarding, boating,<br />

or biking. We’re also blessed with an<br />

incredible network of friends and spend as<br />

much time with them as possible.<br />


breathe clearly. I’m a mountain man at<br />

heart and living here recharges me.<br />

Gut<br />

Your<br />

The Benefits<br />

of Bacteria<br />


Photo ©T. L. Furrer - stock.adobe.com.<br />

You’ve likely heard the phrase,<br />

“You are what you eat.”<br />

Thanks to research into the importance of our gut<br />

health, however, this statement is only partially accurate.<br />

Your gut health has a big influence on all aspects of<br />

your well-being. “Even if you’re eating a healthy diet, you<br />

must be able to properly digest and absorb nutrients,<br />

so they can be used for energy in the body,” explains<br />

Rachael Dardano, CHHC, holistic nutritionist and<br />

digestive specialist at Internal Wisdom in Folsom.<br />

MARCH <strong>2019</strong> | stylemg.com 67

| health & wellness |<br />

“When your gut is<br />

in order, you have a<br />

stronger immune system,<br />

your emotional health<br />

(depression, anxiety, etc.)<br />

is in balance, you have<br />

zero skin issues, allergies<br />

are kept in check, your<br />

sleep is optimal, and<br />

energy is restored.”<br />

“The gastrointestinal system, also referred to<br />

as the digestive system or gut, is a group of<br />

organs that include the mouth, esophagus,<br />

stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small<br />

intestine, colon, and rectum,” Dardano says.<br />

“The gut serves many essential roles in<br />

sustaining and protecting the overall health<br />

and wellness of our bodies.”<br />

To explain further, your gut is full<br />

of “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria,<br />

according to Stacey Maedge, NTP, and<br />

owner at Gut Check Nutritional Therapy<br />

in Loomis. “In a balanced, healthy gut, the<br />

good bacteria overpopulate the bad and<br />

keep things running smoothly,” she says.<br />

“When your gut is in order, you have a<br />

stronger immune system, your emotional<br />

health (depression, anxiety, etc.) is in<br />

balance, you have zero skin issues, allergies<br />

are kept in check, your sleep is optimal, and<br />

energy is restored.”<br />

“When your gut is not in tip-top shape<br />

and the ‘bad’ bacteria take over, you may<br />

experience bloating, diarrhea, constipation,<br />

food allergies or sensitivities, nutritional<br />

deficiencies, excessive fatigue, cravings<br />

for sugar, or worse,” says Anna Rashidi,<br />

PharmD, at Innovative Compounding<br />

Pharmacy in Folsom.<br />

To maintain a happy, healthy gut,<br />

Kathryn Boulter, ND, at Revolutions<br />

Naturopathic with locations in Roseville<br />

and Folsom, suggests eating a diet rich<br />

in whole foods—one that’s mostly [plantbased]<br />

and low in animal protein, sugar,<br />

and processed foods. “Eating a variety of<br />

vegetables is the best way to get vitamins,<br />

minerals, and fiber, which are essential for<br />

a healthy gut,” she says.<br />

According to Maedge, you can boost<br />

the “good” bacteria by eating a variety of<br />

fermented foods, such as live sauerkraut/<br />

kimchi, and other fermented vegetables<br />

and live yogurts that are low in sugar.<br />

Another option is to take a probiotic<br />

supplement. “Buy one brand and once<br />

you finish the bottle, buy one with a<br />

totally different strain of bacteria in it,”<br />

she recommends. “This will help diversify<br />

your ‘good’ bugs.”<br />

If you’re someone who often<br />

experiences heartburn (aka, acid reflux or<br />

GERD), consistency to your meals is key.<br />

“Eating three balanced meals at consistent<br />

times throughout the day is essential for<br />

digestion,” says John McCracken, MD, Chief<br />

of Gastroenterology at Kaiser Permanente<br />

Roseville and Sacramento. “Skipping meals<br />

results in acid or enzymes in the gut that<br />

can damage the stomach or esophagus.<br />

The largest meal should be in the morning<br />

or noon hours with a lighter meal in the<br />

evening.” He also suggests limiting your<br />

coffee and alcohol intake, as both can<br />

trigger heartburn symptoms.<br />

Sooraj Tejaswi, MD, MSPH, Associate<br />

Clinical Professor of Gastroenterology and<br />

Hepatology at UC Davis Medical Center,<br />

says, “All individuals will—at some point<br />

in their lives—transiently experience signs<br />

or symptoms of digestive problems, such<br />

as abdominal pain, bloating, heartburn,<br />

nausea, or vomiting...Yet, when these<br />

symptoms persist for days to weeks or<br />

months, it may be time to seek medical<br />

attention.”<br />

5 Spring-Cleaning Strategies<br />


As we get ready for warmer weather and longer,<br />

brighter days, the time is right to develop a springcleaning<br />

strategy. Whether you’re overloaded with<br />

unwanted gifts from the holidays or simply need to organize<br />

papers and prepare for tax season, we have five easy ideas to<br />

help you create an oasis so you’re able to enjoy the season with<br />

a clean, clutter-free home.<br />

1 out with the old<br />

Decluttering isn’t always an easy task. With collected items over the years, it can be<br />

challenging to decide what to keep and what to donate or toss. Author, Netflix star, and<br />

organizing expert, Marie Kondo, has truly made a science of how to assist you. She<br />

suggests starting with an easier level of difficulty and then moving on to the most<br />

difficult. First, declutter your clothes; next, move on to books, papers, and<br />

miscellaneous items, saving your mementos for last. Find items in each of those<br />

categories throughout your home so you know what you truly own. The key is to keep<br />

only the things that "spark joy" and donate, mend, or throw away those that don’t.<br />

2 everything in its place<br />

Once you’ve decided what you want to keep, organizers—in the form of racks, trays,<br />

and boxes—can be a huge help in keeping the space uncluttered. For the kitchen<br />

area, spice racks can assist in maintaining a tidy cupboard. See-through glass storage<br />

containers allow you to have Instagram-worthy pantries and refrigerators, too.<br />

When it comes to closets, matching hangers keep clothes the same height and<br />

make it easier to see all your garments. Shoe organizers are terrific, too, and help<br />

keep your newly clutter-free area organized. Don’t hesitate to use your favorite<br />

fashion boxes for organizing scarves, jewelry, and other special items.<br />

3 appliance attention<br />

We’re typically in the habit of cleaning out our refrigerator periodically or wiping<br />

down the cooktop on occasion, but how many of us clean our dishwasher or<br />

washing machine? They need a little attention, too. To clean out the mildew and soap<br />

scum that can develop in the interior of the washing machine, run an empty cycle<br />

MARCH <strong>2019</strong> | stylemg.com 77

| home + garden |<br />

with hot water and a couple cups of white vinegar. Your<br />

dishwasher can be freshened up and sanitized by<br />

placing a bowl of vinegar on the lower shelf and<br />

running a normal cycle without dishes. Running equal<br />

parts water and vinegar through your coffee machine<br />

(and following up with a cycle of just water) ensures<br />

your next cup of joe will be delicious and fresh.<br />

4 bust dust<br />

Be sure to look up at your ceiling and down at<br />

your baseboards. We don't always see the dust<br />

accumulating on ceiling fans, but it happens over<br />

time. An easy way to clean the blades is to drape<br />

an old pillowcase over each one, press down with<br />

your hands on each side, and then slide it off. Keep<br />

your ceiling vents sanitary by replacing filters and<br />

cleaning air vents periodically; clear away cobwebs<br />

in each room’s corners; and dust light bulbs and<br />

ceiling fixtures to brighten up a space (dust can<br />

make lighting appear dingy). Baseboards are another<br />

area that accumulates dust over time. Wipe them<br />

down with a soft, microfiber cloth.<br />

5 clean sleep<br />

Since we spend a third of our life in bed, freshening<br />

up your mattress and pillows is definitely worth the<br />

effort. Sprinkle some baking soda over the mattress<br />

top and let it sit for several hours before removing<br />

it with a vacuum cleaner’s upholstery attachment.<br />

Pillows should also be washed to remove bacteria<br />

and dust—most are machine washable. Now you’re<br />

ready for a good night's sleep after all of your<br />

cleaning and organizing efforts!<br />

A New Approach to Care in the ICU<br />

Marshall Celebrates 60 Years<br />

Colonoscopy: Don’t Stress About It<br />




A new approach to<br />

care in the ICU<br />

The Intensive Care Unit (or ICU)<br />

is the area of the hospital where<br />

the most serious patients receive<br />

care. It’s specially built, with<br />

more equipment and staff than<br />

other areas of the hospital. Traditionally,<br />

hospitals rely on consulting physicians<br />

to round on ICU patients. At Marshall<br />

Medical Center, ICU patients benefit from<br />

a new model where the patients receive<br />

24/7 specialized care delivered by four new<br />

intensivist physicians. These doctors have<br />

additional training in critical care and are<br />

able to place breathing tubes, start central<br />

and arterial lines, place dialysis catheters and<br />

Help your body heal itself<br />

with orthobiologics<br />

• Tendonitis<br />

• Rotator cuff tears<br />

• Osteoarthritis<br />

Are you suffering from pain or injury but are not quite ready<br />

for surgery? Take a cue from professional athletes who’ve<br />

discovered the benefits of regenerative medicine to help heal<br />

injuries and treat pain in a natural way.<br />

If you follow sports, you may have heard of injured athletes who<br />

seemingly heal and return to the game—and fast. Professional<br />

athletes not only have trainers and specialists, but have access<br />

to little-known special procedures such as orthobiologics, is the<br />

use of natural, biological substances like blood and plasma to<br />

quickly heal injuries such as:<br />

• Arthritic joints<br />

• Overuse injuries<br />

Platelet rich plasma injection, or PRP, is one example of orthobiologics.<br />

It’s a process that takes the plasma from your own blood, which is<br />

packaged full of growth factors. Those healthy growth factors are then<br />

concentrated by spinning the blood in a centrifuge and isolating those<br />

platelets and injecting them into your injury. This lets your body repair<br />

the injured tissue, allowing natural anti-inflammatory properties repair<br />

tissue and speed up your recovery.<br />

One of the great things about orthobiologics is it uses your body’s own<br />

healing abilities, increasing their potency and then puts them back into<br />

an area of interest. Since these cells are harvested from your own tissue,<br />

there’s no need to use tissue from a donor. It works simply by using<br />

biology to heal your tissues in a natural way.<br />

perform other procedures. Under this model,<br />

patients won’t have to wait for specialists<br />

from other areas of the hospital to become<br />

available and travel to the ICU. Full time<br />

intensivist coverage improves patient care<br />

and outcomes for ICU patients. Since the<br />

program started late last year, patients have<br />

experienced decreased time on ventilators<br />

and the average length of stay in the ICU has<br />

decreased by two full days.<br />

The addition of this intensivist program helps<br />

Marshall maintain best practices for ICU<br />

standards of care, which means better care<br />

for you.<br />

Marshall Celebrates<br />

60 Years<br />

A look back at how a<br />

community built a hospital<br />

The setting was 1956, in the sleepy foothill city of<br />

Placerville, where determined citizens led the charge<br />

to build a modern hospital. Ed Shortes, MD, a young<br />

doctor who joined a local medical practice, sought to replace<br />

the outdated and inefficient Placerville Sanatorium, which<br />

had served as the local hospital since 1904.<br />

The “San,” as it was called, was a two-story building illfitted<br />

for a hospital; patients had to be carried upstairs on a<br />

stretcher for surgery and to deliver babies and then carried<br />

back down again. The building was small and no longer fit the<br />

need for the county’s population, which had doubled in the<br />

previous 10 years.<br />

What happened next had the makings of a movie plot.<br />

Citizens pulled together, sought support and built<br />

momentum in the community. The timing was perfect.<br />

Congress had passed the Hill-Burton Act, a law that gave<br />

funds to build hospitals. The Hill-Burton Act provided for<br />

two-thirds of the costs of the hospital construction. The catch<br />

was that the community had to raise the other third in cash<br />

and pledges. The total cost to build the proposed 52-bed<br />

hospital was $1,085,000, meaning the community buy-in<br />

stood at $411,692. Confident in their resolve, the first Marshall<br />

Hospital Board of Directors was established and incorporated<br />

by the spring of 1957. The application for funding was<br />

submitted and approved by August of that year. The race was<br />

on. Placerville had just four short months to come up with<br />

their third of the funds.<br />

To put things in perspective, the average income in 1956 was<br />

$4,454 a year; a house cost $9,550; milk was 97 cents a gallon<br />

and a loaf of bread was18 cents. How could this rural county<br />

of 29,000 residents even think to try and raise nearly half a<br />

million dollars in such short order? The answer: sheer tenacity.<br />

Michigan-Cal Lumber, the largest employer in El Dorado<br />

County at the time, donated the first $100,000 and land<br />

on which the new hospital would be built. Churches and<br />

service clubs like Rotary and the 20/30 Club held fundraisers,<br />

businesses gave, citizens pledged and several doctors pledged<br />

half a year’s pay to the fund.<br />

It was a<br />

Herculean effort, but 10<br />

days before the December<br />

7, 1957 deadline, the fund<br />

was still $27,000 short.<br />

With no possibility for an<br />

extension, the community<br />

knew it was now or never as<br />

an 11th hour plea went out.<br />

The suggested minimum<br />

pledge was $5 per month for<br />

18 months, or $90.<br />


Four days before the deadline, the Mountain Democrat<br />

newspaper carried a simple headline: “SUCCESS” Donors<br />

Boost Funds Past Goal. In the end, the fundraising campaign<br />

surpassed its goal by $51,514. One can imagine it was a<br />

scene straight out of It’s a Wonderful Life, with townspeople<br />

emptying their coffers to save a cause they believed in, to<br />

invest in the community and its health. The Mountain<br />

Democrat wrote, “It was the most worthwhile project ever<br />

undertaken… and truly shows that El Dorado County can and<br />

does band together for the betterment of the community.”<br />

Marshall Hospital was built and opened in July, 1959.<br />

Today, Marshall Hospital celebrates 60 years and stands<br />

as one of the few remaining independent hospitals in the<br />

nation. Marshall attributes its success to local governance by<br />

a volunteer community board of directors and local hospital<br />

authority, which allows for quick and nimble management<br />

and reinvestment of profits back into improving the nonprofit<br />

community hospital. For more information, visit www.<br />

A lasting<br />

impression<br />


So much good<br />

was done for me at<br />

Marshall, I wanted<br />

to do some good<br />

there too.<br />

As a teenager, Nat Sherrill’s first job was night-shift<br />

maintenance work at a hospital. “I got to see behind the<br />

scenes,” he says, reflecting on the hard work he observed<br />

by both caregivers and grounds maintenance staff alike.<br />

That experience stuck with him in the more than six<br />

decades since.<br />

Hard work was not lost on Nat and his wife, Jan, both in<br />

their 80s now and retired in the Central California Coast.<br />

Professionally, Nat worked as an engineer for the US Geological Survey and Jan<br />

as an administrator at Stanford University. But what ultimately defined them was<br />

their passion for wine, and eventually, wine making. Nat and Jan began making<br />

wine in 1971 as a hobby, “before it was a fashionable thing to do,” in a small cellar<br />

next to their garage.<br />

Jan felt it silly to spend money on a hobby and suggested they make it a business.<br />

They opened Sherrill Cellars in 1973 in the basement of the post office in Woodside<br />

and expanded over time, acquiring 25 acres in Palo Alto where they built a winery<br />

surrounded by vineyards and a community of local vintners that became their family.<br />

ago, Nat and Jan experienced a lifealtering<br />

experience while visiting<br />

friends in the area. “It was 2009,”<br />

said Nat. “I wasn’t feeling well. I saw<br />

a doctor and was treated for internal<br />

bleeding.” After eventually getting a<br />

clean bill of health, they decided to<br />

travel to El Dorado County for a visit.<br />

Unfortunately, this was the time they<br />

discovered Nat’s internal bleeding<br />

hadn’t been resolved after all. After<br />

passing out from severe blood loss,<br />

Nat was rushed to Marshall Hospital’s<br />

Emergency Room. “I was in poor<br />

shape when I arrived at Marshall,”<br />

he recalled. “One of the things I do<br />

remember was a nurse saying, ‘my<br />

god, look at his color!’” Nat was given<br />

10 units of blood and spent six days in<br />

Marshall’s Intensive Care Unit.<br />

This was not the vacation they had<br />

envisioned, but the Sherrills were<br />

grateful for the care. “I was stunned at<br />

the contrast between my local hospital<br />

and Marshall and I still am, to this day,”<br />

shares Nat. He spoke wistfully at the<br />

expertise and bedside manner of all who<br />

cared for him. “It was above and beyond<br />

what I’d ever experienced at a hospital.<br />

It’s difficult to explain to people what<br />

staying there was like. It was more like a<br />

resort than a hospital. The care was top<br />

notch and the food was sensational. It<br />

was tasty and well-prepared.”<br />

seem to get the short end of the stick. So<br />

I’ve made sure some money will go to<br />

them, as well as the ER, which always<br />

needs money.”<br />

“You never know how your everyday<br />

work will impact others,” says Jamie<br />

Johnson, Executive Director of the<br />

Marshall Foundation for Community<br />

Health. “It is heartwarming to hear this<br />

story and we are honored to receive this<br />

legacy gift recognizing the excellent care<br />

and lasting impression Marshall has left<br />

on the Sherrill family.”<br />

By 1981 the winery became Jan’s fulltime<br />

venture. Sherrill Cellars was a<br />

modest success, annually producing<br />

up to 2,000 cases of Chardonnay,<br />

Zinfandel, Chenin Blanc, Petite Syrah,<br />

Cabernet and Barbera sold to local<br />

stores on the peninsula.<br />

In 1995, Nat and Jan retired, sold the<br />

winery and moved to a ranch on the<br />

Central Coast. Ever the gentleman<br />

farmers, the Sherrills decided then<br />

to raise alpacas. Each day, they<br />

experience the soothing peace of<br />

watching alpacas graze on their<br />

pasture.<br />

Though the Sherrills have never lived<br />

in El Dorado County, about ten years<br />

And so it came full circle – from the<br />

experience of his youth working in a<br />

hospital – to becoming the recipient of<br />

the dedicated care and compassion that<br />

saved his life. Nat and Jan did not have<br />

children, so when it came to deciding<br />

where to leave his half of their estate, Nat<br />

decided to leave a substantial amount to<br />

Marshall Medical Center. “So much good<br />

was done for me at Marshall, I wanted<br />

to do some good there too,” he says. “As<br />

a consumer of quite a bit of medical<br />

care, I know how important continuous<br />

training and education are to medical<br />

professionals.” He has allotted a portion<br />

of his gift to the continuing medical<br />

education of nurses to return what was<br />

generously given to him. Referring<br />

back to his memories of working<br />

maintenance at the hospital, Nat adds,<br />

“Even at 16 I could appreciate that the<br />

kitchen, buildings and grounds people<br />

Leave a Legacy<br />

You too can leave a legacy for<br />

others. If you would like to support<br />

Marshall Medical Center through<br />

giving to the Marshall Foundation for<br />

Community Health, there are several gift<br />

arrangements from which to choose.<br />

Whether you would like to put your<br />

Surgery in a New Age<br />

The art of surgery has<br />

come quite far in the<br />

past decade. Procedures<br />

that used to involve<br />

large incisions and<br />

lengthy, painful recoveries can now<br />

be performed with only a few small<br />

incisions. With the help of modern tools<br />

such as the da Vinci surgical robot,<br />

surgeons can manipulate instruments<br />

more acutely. With just one instrument,<br />

surgeons are able to grasp, cut and<br />

coagulate, almost negating the need to<br />

use stitches and reducing the amount<br />

of blood lost during surgery. Surgeons<br />

are further assisted with a more refined<br />

3-D camera. This allows surgeons to<br />

conduct a wider variety of surgeries<br />

laparoscopically. Patients will have less<br />

pain, leave the hospital more quickly<br />

and get back to normal activities sooner.<br />

Marshall Medical Center is now home<br />

to a new, upgraded da Vinci surgical<br />

robot, the Xi model, for minimally<br />

invasive surgery. Robert Carter,<br />

gynecologist at Marshall OB/GYN,<br />

has performed hundreds of robotic<br />

surgeries. “The new robot provides<br />

better optics, more flexibility and<br />

smaller instruments,” he adds.<br />

Utilizing the da Vinci robot, Marshall<br />

has set a superb standard of care with<br />

better outcomes. For example, patients<br />

who’ve undergone an outpatient<br />

hysterectomy at other hospitals would<br />

spend up to 24 hours at the surgery<br />

center, while Marshall patients typically<br />

go home after only four hours. Some<br />

patients even return to work in as little<br />

as one week following surgery.<br />

Minimally invasive robotic-assisted<br />

surgery may be used for conditions<br />

such as:<br />

• Hysterectomy<br />

• Inguinal, hiatal and ventral hernia<br />

repairs<br />

• Diverticulitis, sessile polyp<br />

• Colon cancer, pre- or malignant<br />

polyp<br />

• Foregut surgery – anti-reflux<br />

Talk to your physician about the<br />

availability and appropriateness of da<br />

Vinci surgery for your condition. The<br />

medical experts at Marshall Medical<br />

Center are ready to help.<br />

The Importance of Immunizations<br />

Some parents may be nervous about immunizing their<br />

children, but doctors want you to know vaccinations are<br />

important both for the health of your child and for the health<br />

of others. When a population is immunized, the diseases<br />

become less prevalent and therefore reduce the number of deaths<br />

associated with them.<br />

Rest assured, if your child has a negative reaction to any<br />

immunization, your pediatrician or family medicine practitioner<br />

will adjust the immunization appropriately. Most commonly, an<br />

unusual reaction will occur for immunizations given in groups, such<br />

as measles, mumps and<br />

rubella. In this case, the<br />

doctor may choose to space<br />

these out over a few months<br />

to reduce the likelihood of a<br />

negative reaction.<br />

elationship with our new patient and<br />

to discuss important subjects such<br />

as safer sex, contraception, sexually<br />

transmitted diseases, menstruation,<br />

personal hygiene and any concerns<br />

a young woman may have about her<br />

body and how it’s changing.” She adds<br />

that the early teen years can be rife with<br />

concerns about body image, weight,<br />

and many emotionally difficult things a<br />

girl may be growing through. “We try to<br />

make that first visit as comfortable and<br />

open as possible, where the patient feels<br />

free to be honest about their concerns<br />

with an impartial person who cares<br />

about their health.”<br />

Your teen’s<br />

first GYN visit<br />

It’s a delicate topic for<br />

young women and their<br />

parents alike, but the<br />

conversation about a girl’s<br />

changing body during<br />

puberty should not be<br />

delayed. Young women are<br />

maturing more quickly<br />

these days and the cause<br />

is a source of debate,<br />

but this merely means that keeping<br />

communication open and honest is more<br />

important than ever. A key question to<br />

answer is, when is the right time for that<br />

all-important first appointment with an<br />

OB/GYN physician?<br />

Pediatricians and family practice<br />

physicians provide important,<br />

comprehensive care for the first years<br />

of life, but depending on the provider,<br />

not all may feel comfortable extending<br />

that care to specifically female needs.<br />

That’s where a trained specialist in<br />

women’s health comes in. One like<br />

Michele Cherry, DO, an obstetrics and<br />

gynecology physician at Marshall OB/<br />

GYN in Placerville. She’s careful to<br />

point out there are different types of<br />

appointments that are appropriate<br />

depending on a young woman’s age and<br />

specific female health needs.<br />

“Barring health concerns, pregnancy,<br />

difficult menstruation or infections, I<br />

recommend that young women have<br />

their first internal pelvic exam, pap<br />

test and breast exam at 21 years of age,”<br />

Dr. Cherry explains. “However, it’s a<br />

good idea for girls to have an initial<br />

consultation and visit with an OB/<br />

GYN doctor in their early teen years,<br />

somewhere between 13 and 15.”<br />

The difference between the two types of<br />

appointments is that for younger girls --<br />

again barring early sexual activity-- the<br />

visit with their new OB/GYN is focused<br />

on patient education. Dr. Cherry says,<br />

“It’s a chance for us to establish the<br />

If a teen girl is sexually active, a<br />

complete examination including pelvic<br />

and pap test is crucial, to ensure no<br />

infections are present and to educate<br />

the patient about making smart choices<br />

and protecting herself and her growing<br />

and changing body. For the teen girl<br />

who is not sexually active, this first<br />

appointment with an OB/GYN provider<br />

is equally important, though lacking<br />

the exam component for good reason.<br />

ACOG reports there is no clinical<br />

support for a pelvic exam or screening<br />

prior to 21 years of age in a nonsexually<br />

active patient without female<br />

health concerns.<br />

As Dr. Cherry explains, “an initial<br />

appointment in early teen years is<br />

an ideal way to establish a trusting<br />

relationship between patient and<br />

physician and to introduce young<br />

women to important topics during a<br />

non-threatening, pleasant visit that<br />

doesn’t include the pelvic or breast<br />

exam component, which can be<br />

intimidating to younger girls.”<br />

Marshall OB/GYN providers are<br />

currently accepting new patients.<br />

I always look forward to brunch. Enjoying a Sunday out<br />

with loved ones never fails to set the tone for the remnants<br />

of a busy weekend—aka, relaxing at home. With that in<br />

mind, I made my way to Milestone in El Dorado Hills. What I<br />

discovered was a modern, cozy, and comfortable restaurant<br />

filled with friendly faces.<br />

SOS<br />










It should come as no surprise to anyone that I’m a proponent of<br />

independently owned and operated establishments—and chef-owners,<br />

such as Milestone’s Nick Dedier, are at the top of the food chain in my book.<br />

Along with his wife, Alexa, they’ve constructed a morning menu that’s worth<br />

waking up for. (Lunch and dinner are equally impressive.) A small pastry,<br />

while our table talked and enjoyed coffee and mimosas, was a sublime start.<br />

“Bacon pancake donut holes?” our server asked. Naturally, we said<br />

yes. Now I know why everyone in the place was happy—bacon pancake<br />

donut holes dusted with powdered sugar alongside warm maple syrup<br />

would bring a smile to anyone’s face.<br />

From here on out, the possibilities had my brain scrambling: “What to<br />

do? What to do?” How about something I hated as a kid. If Milestone could<br />

pull off SOS (chipped beef on toast), I’d be a forever fan. Well, they must’ve<br />

seen me coming. The new and (greatly) improved version here included<br />

wonderfully succulent shredded short ribs in a rich, creamy gravy with<br />

fried eggs atop toast. If only my dad had known about short ribs…<br />

Next was Milestone’s take on huevos<br />

rancheros—a hearty, Cabo resort-style version<br />

with black beans, shredded potatoes, overmedium<br />

eggs, farmers’ cheese, pickled carrots,<br />

cilantro, and large grilled shrimp in a tantalizing,<br />

slightly piquant South-of-the-border sauce. Muy<br />

delicioso!<br />

Once more from the “count your calories<br />

tomorrow” mantra, I had to try the French dip<br />

Benedict with sliced wagyu beef, grilled onions,<br />

horseradish, poached eggs, cheese, and a silky<br />

demi-glace finish; in other words, decadence<br />

defined. Each bite had me brainstorming how I’d<br />

Huevos Rancheros attempt to recreate it at home.<br />

Moving on to something light, I opted for<br />

one of my favorite flavor combinations: a savory tartine with warm brie,<br />

apples, chicken, and walnuts. Served with a house salad, it was a simple yet<br />

satisfying choice—the perfect complement to a chilled glass of champagne<br />

and the end of a late-morning celebration of good food and friends.<br />

Thank you, Alexa and Nick, for an enjoyable dining experience and your<br />

commitment to “Milestone for All”—a growing fund for deserving families<br />

affected by natural disasters or unforeseen hardships.<br />

Dolce Vita Caffé // When I walked into Folsom’s newest café, Dolce Vita, I felt like I’d been transported straight<br />

to Italy. Beautiful Italian-inspired desserts dying to be devoured from the glass-enclosed case, Frank Sinatra crooning in the<br />

background, and a life-sized mural of Venice all serve as reminders of the bel paese (beautiful country). I was immediately<br />

drawn to the baked goods, because who wouldn’t be? Croissants, tarts, cakes, and cannolis were all fighting for my attention.<br />

My friend and I decided to have the homemade Bacon Quiche and a Latté to start. Other breakfast options include<br />

Belgian waffles, apple-filled pancakes, bagels, and pastries aplenty. The savory quiche hit the spot, but we were ready for<br />

something sweet. I’m a sucker for fried anything, so we went with the Trio of Beignets. One was filled with Nutella, one<br />

with dark chocolate, and one with white chocolate—all of them equally scrumptious. I’ll have to go back for lunch (and more<br />

dessert), because their sandwiches and salads looked amazing. Owners Joseph and Denise did a fantastic job bringing a<br />

taste of Italy to Folsom. From coffee to gelato, and tiramisu to paninis, you feel the authentic Italian touch in every nook and<br />

cranny. Enjoy la dolce vita (the sweet life) for yourself seven days a week for breakfast, lunch…or just dessert! 1008 Riley<br />

1 cup flour<br />

1/4 cup milk<br />

2 tsp. baking powder<br />

1/2 tsp. fresh thyme, chopped<br />

1/2 tsp. fresh rosemary,<br />

chopped<br />

1 tbsp. onion, minced<br />

1 tbsp. button mushrooms,<br />

minced<br />

1 1/2 tbsp. salt, plus more for<br />

serving<br />

1/4 tsp. pepper<br />

1 tbsp. butter<br />

Place grated potatoes in cloth (or<br />

cheesecloth) and squeeze out as much<br />

liquid as possible. Combine cold mashed<br />

potatoes with grated potatoes, flour, milk,<br />

baking powder, herbs, minced onion,<br />

mushrooms, salt, and pepper.<br />

Roll dough into a 3” x 2” log or cylinder.<br />

Try to pack your potato mixture into this<br />

log shape tightly, which can be done by<br />

spooning the mixture onto cheesecloth<br />

and rolling into the log, then patting and<br />

molding, or simply by patting or molding<br />

with your hands.<br />

Fill a stock pot (at least 6 quarts) with<br />

water and bring to a rolling boil. Turn<br />

down to a simmer and add the tightly<br />

packed potato log. Simmer for 1 hour.<br />

Remove and let cool in refrigerator<br />

overnight.<br />

Once cooled, and prior to serving, slice<br />

into desired thickness, typically between<br />

1/4” to 1/2" rounds. Place butter into a<br />

skillet and fry each round until golden<br />

brown. Lightly salt and serve as desired.<br />

ABV: 6.7%<br />

Aromas of chocolate and coffee abound in this<br />

gold medal-winning brew, with an underlying<br />

hint of earthy spice and dark dried fruits (figs and<br />

raisins). Full-bodied, with a medium sweetness,<br />

rich mouthfeel, and roasted malt notes, it’s<br />

delicious on its own or in ice cream floats.<br />

olrepublicbrewery.com<br />



ABV: 8.7%<br />

This nitrogen-infused stout is rich and decadent, with<br />

a velvety milk chocolate flavor that’s balanced with<br />

locally sourced mandarins from Newcastle's Burgeson<br />

Family Farm.<br />

outofboundsbrewing.com<br />



ABV: 3.9%<br />

True to style, with a beautiful deep ruby/mahogany hue<br />

and an off-white creamy head, this beer is nitrogenated to<br />

ensure a smooth, creamy experience. The pairing options<br />

are endless, too—from beef and oysters to cake and ice<br />

cream.<br />

auburnalehouse.com<br />



ABV: 4.5%<br />

This deep ebony brew with chocolate overtones is made<br />

with an abundance of oats to give it a smooth, creamy<br />

mouthfeel along with a gorgeous, fluffy head. A hint of<br />

roasted coffee comes through at the end for a great<br />

finish.<br />

loomisbasinbrewing.com<br />


ABV: 5.8%<br />

Historically known as a “milk stout” or “cream stout” and<br />

using lactose sugar as a sweetener, this particular recipe<br />

also uses cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and sea salt, resulting<br />

in a chocolaty brew that’s good to the last drop.<br />

MUST-TRY<br />

STOUTS<br />










ABV: 11.4%<br />

Don't let the high alcohol content of this imperial stout<br />

scare you. It drinks extremely smooth, while being wellbalanced<br />

between malt, hops, chocolate, and roast.<br />

outbreakbrewing.com<br />


BONES<br />

ABV: 13.3%<br />

This massive imperial stout utilizes a blend of<br />

Ethiopia and Honduras coffee beans, along with a<br />

heavy wallop of maple. Rich flavors and aromas of<br />

milk chocolate, cocoa, fresh roast, and sweet cream<br />

provide the palate with a harmonious flavor profile and<br />

thick, velvety mouthfeel.<br />

Where<br />

We Live<br />

“Newts—and<br />

to nature and<br />

wildlife—are<br />
