Style Magazine: March 2019

StyleMediaGroup

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

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

mothers and their children flourish by empowering them through education, enrichment,

and educational programs. Inspiration for the organization came from founder and

executive director Tara Taylor's personal experience and the belief that single mothers

can be a professional success and a great parent despite what society says.

| editor’s letter |

What’s the most “foreign” food you’ve ever

eaten? For me, it’s a tie between sheep’s cheek

(apparently the most tender part) and fermented

shark. Both bites (yes, one of each was all I

could stomach) happened while nannying in

Iceland. Though neither had me rushing to get

the recipes, the simple act of stepping out of my

cuisine comfort zone gave me an entirely new

insight into the country’s culture—and made for

some pretty epic pictures, too.

On a tastier note, the family also introduced me

to skyr, a ridiculously thick and creamy yogurt that’s

low in fat and incredibly high in protein; Brennivín, a

caraway-flavored liquor that’s akin to drinking boozy

black licorice; and the Icelandic hot dog (pylsa)—made

from organic, grass-fed, free-range, hormone-free (insert

all other positive meat modifiers) lamb and served on a

steamed bun with crispy fried onions, raw white onions,

rémoulade, ketchup, and sweet brown mustard—that,

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

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 Styletested

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!

WHAT'S THE

LUCKIEST THING

THAT'S EVER

HAPPENED TO YOU?

“Meeting a beautiful young woman,

who—seven years later—said ‘yes’

to my proposal. Fast forward and

we're a few months away from our

39th wedding anniversary.”

—Reg Holliday

"Being hired by Style Media Group

in 2005. Will this get me a raise?"

—Debra Linn

“Getting pregnant with my son, Jake. My

husband and I had just gotten married

and were unsure about starting a

family right away. While in the midst

of analyzing our life, our goals, and

our timing, the universe gave us

the most perfect baby, at the most

perfect time, in the most perfect

way. He's my March baby and

will always and forever be my lucky

charm.”—Aimee Carroll

’18

“My parents winning a visa from

a lottery to live and work in the

U.S.”—Gabriel Ionica

“I swam on the community swim team every

summer in grade school. One year, I met

a girl in my lane, we instantly clicked,

and did everything together. At

summer’s end, we promised we’d

always be friends, but I didn't see

her again for years. As luck would

have it, however, we were seated

next to each other on the first day

of seventh grade. We've been best

friends ever since.”

—Isabella De Garza

“When I won a trip to the Bahamas

during a fundraiser at my daughter’s

school. The prize included

accommodations at Atlantis

Paradise Island Resort and

airfare.”—Jami Areia

“On June 30, 1967, my widowed mother with

three boys married my stepfather—also

widowed with three boys. I wouldn’t

have believed it then, but having a

fireman-marine-ex-professional

baseball player come into our life

and being part of an all-boy Brady

Bunch was like winning the lottery

(only our fights were a little more

rambunctious). Luck or providence?

Either way, I’m grateful.”

SEASON’S EATINGS

You’ll see a lot of green at farmers’ markets this month. No, not

shamrocks (!)—leafy greens like kale, collard greens, and chard.

Packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber but low in calories,

eating a diet rich in these nutrient-dense veggies can reduce your

risk of obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure, in addition to

helping mental acuity. To learn more about these superfoods that are

currently in season and for the recipe to make Sautéed Greens with

Tamari, Honey, and Sesame, head to the web now.

GET TO KNOW

In 2005, Auburn resident Jenny Davidson’s

life was changed forever. Her son, Jordan,

was born with trisomy 18, a rare genetic

abnormality, and passed away after just 32

hours of life. While it was a terrible time for her

family, Davidson now credits the experience

with strengthening her resolve to make a

positive impact on her community. “I needed

to know I was making the world a better place

for the children who get to stay,” she recalls.

Davidson is now the CEO and executive

director of Stand Up Placer, a nonprofit that

provides crucial intervention and support

for victims of domestic violence, sexual

assault, and human trafficking. She was also

“I needed to know I

was making the world

a better place for the

children who get to stay.”

Q&A

What advice would you give to your

younger self?

Don’t put off getting your education.

What comes to you naturally?

I’m a natural-born learner. I love pursuing personal

growth and expanding my knowledge base.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Closed-mindedness.

Jenny Davidson

Biggest life inspirations?

My sons. I want to be the superhero they

think I am.

Best words of wisdom you’ve received?

Your trauma doesn’t define you. You

define you. It will change you, but you get

to decide what the change is; you get to

choose to survive.

one of only eight women in the U.S. who

made the BBC 100 Women 2018 list, which

celebrates female leaders, trailblazers, and

everyday heroes from around the world

who influence and inspire others. She’s

especially passionate about providing safe,

comfortable, and confidential housing—not

only to survivors of domestic abuse, but

also their pets, and explains that many

victims stay in abusive environments out of

reluctance to leave their pets behind with

an abuser. As a result of her efforts, Stand

Up Placer is now pet-friendly, and she hopes

other shelters will follow suit. For Davidson,

the best part of it all is being able to honor

Jordan by helping others get a new lease

on life. “We get to choose how trauma will

affect our lives,” she explains, adding, “My

son still makes a difference every day I get up

and go to work.”

Stand Up Placer’s annual fundraiser, Stand

Up and Dance, will take place on March 23 at

Orchard Creek Lodge from 6-10 p.m. For more

GREAT SHOWS. UP CLOSE. IN FOLSOM!

LEGALLY BLONDE - THE MUSICAL

FRI–SUN APR 5–7

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

from the sorority house to the halls of justice. Elle Woods appears to have

it all, until her boyfriend dumps her to attend Harvard Law. Driven by

memorable songs and explosive dances, Legally Blonde - The Musical

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

(New York Times)

MICHAEL MCDONALD

MON–TUE APR 15–16

One of the world’s most distinctive singing voices, Michael McDonald is

often imitated but never duplicated. He’s had enough humility over the

years to freely blend that voice with others, whether as a member of Steely

Dan, a Doobie Brother, as a highly successful solo artist and songwriter,a

member of the supergroup the Dukes of September; or, recently, reaching

the Coachella generation as a celebrated co-star on Thundercat’s indie hit

“Show You the Way.”

SOMETHING ROTTEN!

THU–SAT APR 18–20

With 10 Tony ® nominations including Best Musical, Something Rotten!

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

smash tells the story of Nick and Nigel Bottom, two brothers who are

desperate to write their own hit play while the “rock star” Shakespeare

keeps getting all the hits. “The Producers + Spamalot + The Book of

Mormon. Squared!” (New York Magazine).

MENOPAUSE THE MUSICAL

THU–SUN MAY 9–12

Four women at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra

and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much

love it . . . It’s hilarious . . . Go see it!!!” (Joy Behar, The View).

ask the experts

Q: How do you determine the best

size bed for your pet?

A: Make sure you know the

measurements of the bed you’re

interested in and compare them to

something you can easily measure

against in your house. Sometimes it’s

difficult to purely imagine how big

something is by measuring, say a couch

cushion, so comparing those to the bed

will you give a better idea of its size.

Measuring the space your dog uses when

they sleep will give you a good idea as to

how much room they need, too.

Q: How often should you practice

while learning a new instrument?

A: We suggest a minimum of 15 minutes

(or more) each day to yield better

results in instrument development. For

students who are in school, we suggest

saving math homework for last and

practicing the instrument first, since

the same parts of the brain are being

stimulated during math and

music. Every new student

goes through a honeymoon

phase in which

they’re fascinated

with their new

instrument. As the

student develops and learns

new and more difficult material,

however, everything becomes

more challenging. This is where

the discipline of practicing

every day (Monday-Friday) helps

students grow on a consistent basis.

Giving Back

Single Mom

Strong

Helping Women Find Their Wings

by LINDA HOLDERNESS | photos by DANTE FONTANA

Can women "have it all?" Not easily if they’re single

moms, says Tara Taylor, founder and executive director

of the nonprofit Single Mom Strong, which supports

women raising children alone. According to census

data, that’s one-quarter of all households in the

Sacramento area—households that often struggle to

provide their children with basic needs.

As a single mother herself for 18 years, now

remarried, Taylor dug into her own life to develop a

program that would offer the personal and professional support she knows

could have benefited her and her daughter. "I thought about my experiences

and challenges and wanted to find a way to make it easier for other moms,"

she says. In just two years, Single Mom Strong has undertaken an impressive

agenda of activities, and 240 single mothers have participated in at least one

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

something interests you, [you can] just come on out," Taylor says.

The organization kicked off in December 2016 with an Adopt-a-Family

24 stylemg.com | MARCH 2019 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


event that provided holiday gifts to single

moms and their kids, an activity that has

continued annually. "The holidays can

be overwhelming," Taylor says. "A lot of

moms go into debt for their kids." This past

December, the group gave presents to 16

families and, from the generous donations,

had enough toys for four more families.

On Valentine’s Day this year—"a day

that can be tough for single moms"—the

group held a kid-friendly Love Your Life

celebration, featuring a gourmet meal,

champagne, and guest speakers.

Single Mom Strong’s core program

consists of a minimum of four events per

month, with childcare provided where

needed, and include:

MOTHER AND CHILD: An activity such

as roller skating or visiting the zoo that

promotes affordable bonding time with

children and one another.

MOM’S NIGHT OUT: A fun evening to give

single moms a much-needed break.

EMPOWERMENT WORKSHOPS: Courses

offering moms resources and life skills,

such as goal setting. time management, and

self-defense. Taylor, a life coach, leads some

of the classes, while other single mothers

and industry professionals lead ones in

their respective areas of expertise.

New programs set to start this year include:

MEN’S MENTORSHIP PROGRAM: Provides

positive, caring male role models for the

children. Men are trained and commit to

one activity per month.

SUMMER CAMPS: Helps solve the problem

of finding summer day care with affordable

weeklong camps based around different

themes; expected to open in June.

EMPOWERMENT CENTER WITH CO-OP

DAY CARE: Single Mom Strong's new

home in Citrus Heights, slated to open in

May, features an atrium with an indoor

playground. The day care center, open from

6:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m. for full-time or dropin

needs, is staffed by a paid teacher and

parent volunteers.

What else is in store for the future?

According to Taylor, expansion to other

cities. “There’s nothing like Single Mom

Strong anywhere else in the country.”

She’s already developing a manual for

starting other chapters. If it seems like

she’s moving fast, it's because she has to.

“I’m trying to keep up with the speed of

my dreams.”

Spotlight on

Bruce

Gruenzel

by HEATHER L. BECKER

Born and raised

in Wisconsin,

painter and current

Placerville resident Bruce

Gruenzel has been enthralled

by the ocean ever since he

first laid eyes upon it. His

affinity for it runs so deep, in

fact, that seascapes—and their

varying colors and moods—

are often the main themes

of his work. “My respect for

the ocean’s movements and

force was further instilled

during the 15 years I spent

as a lifeguard [in] Southern

California,” shares Gruenzel. “I

hope to bring the excitement

of those experiences to the

canvas.” Both self-taught

and professionally instructed

at the New Renaissance

Academy School of Living

Oils on Whidbey Island in

Washington—where he dove

deep into color theory and

composition, developing the

foundation for his current

technique of painting in

multiple layers to create

greater depth—Gruenzel’s

work can be viewed at Gold

Country Artists’ Gallery (379

Main Street) in Placerville.

| arts & entertainment |

HLB: When did you discover your talent and passion for art?

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

came into my head. Encouraged by my grandfather and parents, I

learned how to accept suggestions and critiques early on. I never

really lost this passion, but school and sports kept me busy during

my teenage years, so I was only able to occasionally create pencil

and charcoal drawings.

HLB: How did seeing the ocean for the first time influence your

work?

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

it was a great visual inspiration. Even though there were waves on

Lake Michigan where I was raised, the ocean was certainly on a

grander scale with the rock formations, the crashing waves, and

the ever-changing array of colors in the ebb and flow of the water.

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

Not having any experience with the medium, I purchased several

Walter Foster books and was immediately hooked.

HLB: Why are you drawn to oil and what are its challenges?

BG: I love painting in oils because the fluidity of the medium allows

me to blend and feather the colors with little separation, especially

clouds and water. One of the major challenges is color. I have to

ask myself, “What are the actual colors of the sea at this particular

time?”

(Top; L to R) View from Kirby Beach,

Gaff Rigged Dory

(Middle; L to R) Alone 2, The Searchers

(Below) The Last of the Wanderer

HLB: Do you have a favorite amongst your paintings?

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

Wanderer, which was repainted several times until I was satisfied;

View from Kirby Beach, because I achieved 98 percent of what I

imagined; and Gaff Rigged Dory, which flowed from my brush as if

it had a mind of its own.

HLB: Do you have any advice for artists just starting out?

BG: I recommend seeking out qualified instructors who will teach

you the basics without derailing your creativity. Also, learn color.

There are countless colors available, [but] start by practicing with the

primary ones. Lastly, learn to accept criticism with an open mind.

But above all: paint, paint, paint.

other hearty European bites at

MUST-TRY DISH: Lemon Tart (glutenfree

1. Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass—

ingredients commonly found in

Thai dishes—aren’t just delicious:

They’re also medicinal. Ginger and

turmeric have anti-inflammatory

properties, and ginger is thought

to aid in digestion and circulation.

Lemongrass is reportedly an antidote

for stomachaches, headaches, and

even the common cold.

2. Chili peppers are thought to first

have been domesticated in Mexico

nearly 5,000 years ago, but now

China is the top producer of the

chili pepper.

3. While cassava hasn’t quite caught on

in the U.S., it’s actually the third most

popular carbohydrate on the planet.

This drought-tolerant root vegetable

is a major staple in much of the

developing world, with Nigeria being

its largest producer.

4. Sushi is meant to be eaten in one

bite. If you dip it in soy sauce,

don’t commit the cardinal sin of

leaving behind rice in the bowl or

mixing together a wasabi dipping

concoction. And the ginger on your

plate? It’s meant as a palate cleanser.

5. In the 1800s, Italy invented the

Margherita (no, not margarita) pizza,

named for Queen Margherita. The

red tomatoes, white mozzarella,

and green basil aren’t a color

coincidence—they represent the

colors of Italy's flag.

6. Favorite pizza toppings around the

world differ. In Brazil, it’s green peas.

In Germany, canned tuna is popular.

In India, pickled ginger and minced

mutton top the list.

7. Bread isn’t a traditional staple in East

Asia, but Vietnam is an exception.

French colonists introduced

baguettes to the country, which the

Vietnamese adapted. Now, you can

find Vietnamese baguettes on every

street corner—and in the famous

sandwich: bahn mi.

8. In France, approximately 500 million

snails (escargot) are eaten every year.

9. Traditionally, wheat noodles are the

main staple of Northern Chinese

diets, and rice is the main staple in

the South. Noodles are also found in

Southern Chinese diets, of course,

but they’re typically rice noodles.

10. Most people know one kind of

paprika—and maybe a smoked

paprika, if you’re fancy. In Hungary,

there are eight different flavor

profiles of paprika, ranging from

sweet and mild to pungent and spicy.

Health benefits are an extra benefit

when enjoying the delicious and

authentic Thai food served at Thai

Paradise restaurant.

What makes Thai food healthy is how it is

cooked and the ingredients used. At Thai

Paradise food is cooked with expensive and

healthy rice bran oil like what is used in

Thailand. Most restaurants use other oils

that cost less. Thai Paradise also uses local

Farm-to-Fork ingredients, fresh vegetables

and meats purchased daily.

The ingredients in many Thai Paradise

dishes include several that are known

to improve our health. Turmeric is antiinflammatory

and an anti-oxidant. It aids

digestion, arthritis, the heart, and may

protect against bacteria and some cancers

(per animal studies). Galanga is used in

Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

It aids digestion, inflammation, arthritis

and ulcers. Lemongrass is also used in

Chinese medicine for flus and colds, fevers,

headaches, arthritis, fungal infections and

stomach conditions. Coriander aids digestive

and gastrointestinal problems, and bacterial

and fungal infections. Chilies aid sleep, the

heart, and healthy insulin and glucose levels.

Coconut Milk contains good fat, lowers

bad cholesterol, promotes good cholesterol,

boosts immunity, modulates metabolic

functions, provides valuable fatty acids and

fights aging.

Thai Paradise uses all of these ingredients

and many more and is the only Thai

restaurant in the area cooking with healthy

rice bran oil. Their healthy dishes, like Pad

Thai, Tom Yum, Papaya Salad, Red Green

and Yellow Curry, and Spring Rolls (all

shown) are among the list of Thai foods

recommended by Registered Dieticians.

Go for the health benefits or go for the

authentic and delicious flavors in the food

created by Jarunee Fleming and her staff at

Thai Paradise - a favorite place to dine.

Gut

Your

The Benefits

of Bacteria

by KOURTNEY JASON

Photo ©T. L. Furrer - stock.adobe.com.

You’ve likely heard the phrase,

“You are what you eat.”

Thanks to research into the importance of our gut

health, however, this statement is only partially accurate.

Your gut health has a big influence on all aspects of

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

must be able to properly digest and absorb nutrients,

so they can be used for energy in the body,” explains

Rachael Dardano, CHHC, holistic nutritionist and

digestive specialist at Internal Wisdom in Folsom.

MARCH 2019 | stylemg.com 67


| health & wellness |

“When your gut is

in order, you have a

stronger immune system,

your emotional health

(depression, anxiety, etc.)

is in balance, you have

zero skin issues, allergies

are kept in check, your

sleep is optimal, and

energy is restored.”

“The gastrointestinal system, also referred to

as the digestive system or gut, is a group of

organs that include the mouth, esophagus,

stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, small

intestine, colon, and rectum,” Dardano says.

“The gut serves many essential roles in

sustaining and protecting the overall health

and wellness of our bodies.”

To explain further, your gut is full

of “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria,

according to Stacey Maedge, NTP, and

owner at Gut Check Nutritional Therapy

in Loomis. “In a balanced, healthy gut, the

good bacteria overpopulate the bad and

keep things running smoothly,” she says.

“When your gut is in order, you have a

stronger immune system, your emotional

health (depression, anxiety, etc.) is in

balance, you have zero skin issues, allergies

are kept in check, your sleep is optimal, and

energy is restored.”

“When your gut is not in tip-top shape

and the ‘bad’ bacteria take over, you may

experience bloating, diarrhea, constipation,

food allergies or sensitivities, nutritional

deficiencies, excessive fatigue, cravings

for sugar, or worse,” says Anna Rashidi,

PharmD, at Innovative Compounding

Pharmacy in Folsom.

To maintain a happy, healthy gut,

Kathryn Boulter, ND, at Revolutions

Naturopathic with locations in Roseville

and Folsom, suggests eating a diet rich

in whole foods—one that’s mostly [plantbased]

and low in animal protein, sugar,

and processed foods. “Eating a variety of

vegetables is the best way to get vitamins,

minerals, and fiber, which are essential for

a healthy gut,” she says.

According to Maedge, you can boost

the “good” bacteria by eating a variety of

fermented foods, such as live sauerkraut/

kimchi, and other fermented vegetables

and live yogurts that are low in sugar.

Another option is to take a probiotic

supplement. “Buy one brand and once

you finish the bottle, buy one with a

totally different strain of bacteria in it,”

she recommends. “This will help diversify

your ‘good’ bugs.”

If you’re someone who often

experiences heartburn (aka, acid reflux or

GERD), consistency to your meals is key.

“Eating three balanced meals at consistent

times throughout the day is essential for

digestion,” says John McCracken, MD, Chief

of Gastroenterology at Kaiser Permanente

Roseville and Sacramento. “Skipping meals

results in acid or enzymes in the gut that

can damage the stomach or esophagus.

The largest meal should be in the morning

or noon hours with a lighter meal in the

evening.” He also suggests limiting your

coffee and alcohol intake, as both can

trigger heartburn symptoms.

Sooraj Tejaswi, MD, MSPH, Associate

Clinical Professor of Gastroenterology and

Hepatology at UC Davis Medical Center,

says, “All individuals will—at some point

in their lives—transiently experience signs

or symptoms of digestive problems, such

as abdominal pain, bloating, heartburn,

nausea, or vomiting...Yet, when these

symptoms persist for days to weeks or

months, it may be time to seek medical

attention.”

5 Spring-Cleaning Strategies

by KERRIE L. KELLY, FASID

As we get ready for warmer weather and longer,

brighter days, the time is right to develop a springcleaning

strategy. Whether you’re overloaded with

unwanted gifts from the holidays or simply need to organize

papers and prepare for tax season, we have five easy ideas to

help you create an oasis so you’re able to enjoy the season with

a clean, clutter-free home.

1 out with the old

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

challenging to decide what to keep and what to donate or toss. Author, Netflix star, and

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

suggests starting with an easier level of difficulty and then moving on to the most

difficult. First, declutter your clothes; next, move on to books, papers, and

miscellaneous items, saving your mementos for last. Find items in each of those

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

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

2 everything in its place

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

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

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

containers allow you to have Instagram-worthy pantries and refrigerators, too.

When it comes to closets, matching hangers keep clothes the same height and

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

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

fashion boxes for organizing scarves, jewelry, and other special items.

3 appliance attention

We’re typically in the habit of cleaning out our refrigerator periodically or wiping

down the cooktop on occasion, but how many of us clean our dishwasher or

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

scum that can develop in the interior of the washing machine, run an empty cycle

MARCH 2019 | stylemg.com 77


| home + garden |

with hot water and a couple cups of white vinegar. Your

dishwasher can be freshened up and sanitized by

placing a bowl of vinegar on the lower shelf and

running a normal cycle without dishes. Running equal

parts water and vinegar through your coffee machine

(and following up with a cycle of just water) ensures

your next cup of joe will be delicious and fresh.

4 bust dust

Be sure to look up at your ceiling and down at

your baseboards. We don't always see the dust

accumulating on ceiling fans, but it happens over

time. An easy way to clean the blades is to drape

an old pillowcase over each one, press down with

your hands on each side, and then slide it off. Keep

your ceiling vents sanitary by replacing filters and

cleaning air vents periodically; clear away cobwebs

in each room’s corners; and dust light bulbs and

ceiling fixtures to brighten up a space (dust can

make lighting appear dingy). Baseboards are another

area that accumulates dust over time. Wipe them

down with a soft, microfiber cloth.

5 clean sleep

Since we spend a third of our life in bed, freshening

up your mattress and pillows is definitely worth the

effort. Sprinkle some baking soda over the mattress

top and let it sit for several hours before removing

it with a vacuum cleaner’s upholstery attachment.

Pillows should also be washed to remove bacteria

and dust—most are machine washable. Now you’re

ready for a good night's sleep after all of your

cleaning and organizing efforts!

A New Approach to Care in the ICU

Marshall Celebrates 60 Years

Colonoscopy: Don’t Stress About It

SPECIAL AD SECTION


SPECIAL AD SECTION

BETTER CARE FOR YOU

A new approach to

care in the ICU

The Intensive Care Unit (or ICU)

is the area of the hospital where

the most serious patients receive

care. It’s specially built, with

more equipment and staff than

other areas of the hospital. Traditionally,

hospitals rely on consulting physicians

to round on ICU patients. At Marshall

Medical Center, ICU patients benefit from

a new model where the patients receive

24/7 specialized care delivered by four new

intensivist physicians. These doctors have

additional training in critical care and are

able to place breathing tubes, start central

and arterial lines, place dialysis catheters and

Help your body heal itself

with orthobiologics

• Tendonitis

• Rotator cuff tears

• Osteoarthritis

Are you suffering from pain or injury but are not quite ready

for surgery? Take a cue from professional athletes who’ve

discovered the benefits of regenerative medicine to help heal

injuries and treat pain in a natural way.

If you follow sports, you may have heard of injured athletes who

seemingly heal and return to the game—and fast. Professional

athletes not only have trainers and specialists, but have access

to little-known special procedures such as orthobiologics, is the

use of natural, biological substances like blood and plasma to

quickly heal injuries such as:

• Arthritic joints

• Overuse injuries

Platelet rich plasma injection, or PRP, is one example of orthobiologics.

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

packaged full of growth factors. Those healthy growth factors are then

concentrated by spinning the blood in a centrifuge and isolating those

platelets and injecting them into your injury. This lets your body repair

the injured tissue, allowing natural anti-inflammatory properties repair

tissue and speed up your recovery.

One of the great things about orthobiologics is it uses your body’s own

healing abilities, increasing their potency and then puts them back into

an area of interest. Since these cells are harvested from your own tissue,

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

biology to heal your tissues in a natural way.

perform other procedures. Under this model,

patients won’t have to wait for specialists

from other areas of the hospital to become

available and travel to the ICU. Full time

intensivist coverage improves patient care

and outcomes for ICU patients. Since the

program started late last year, patients have

experienced decreased time on ventilators

and the average length of stay in the ICU has

decreased by two full days.

The addition of this intensivist program helps

Marshall maintain best practices for ICU

standards of care, which means better care

for you.

Marshall Celebrates

60 Years

A look back at how a

community built a hospital

The setting was 1956, in the sleepy foothill city of

Placerville, where determined citizens led the charge

to build a modern hospital. Ed Shortes, MD, a young

doctor who joined a local medical practice, sought to replace

the outdated and inefficient Placerville Sanatorium, which

had served as the local hospital since 1904.

The “San,” as it was called, was a two-story building illfitted

for a hospital; patients had to be carried upstairs on a

stretcher for surgery and to deliver babies and then carried

back down again. The building was small and no longer fit the

need for the county’s population, which had doubled in the

previous 10 years.

What happened next had the makings of a movie plot.

Citizens pulled together, sought support and built

momentum in the community. The timing was perfect.

Congress had passed the Hill-Burton Act, a law that gave

funds to build hospitals. The Hill-Burton Act provided for

two-thirds of the costs of the hospital construction. The catch

was that the community had to raise the other third in cash

and pledges. The total cost to build the proposed 52-bed

hospital was $1,085,000, meaning the community buy-in

stood at $411,692. Confident in their resolve, the first Marshall

Hospital Board of Directors was established and incorporated

by the spring of 1957. The application for funding was

submitted and approved by August of that year. The race was

on. Placerville had just four short months to come up with

their third of the funds.

To put things in perspective, the average income in 1956 was

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

and a loaf of bread was18 cents. How could this rural county

of 29,000 residents even think to try and raise nearly half a

million dollars in such short order? The answer: sheer tenacity.

Michigan-Cal Lumber, the largest employer in El Dorado

County at the time, donated the first $100,000 and land

on which the new hospital would be built. Churches and

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

businesses gave, citizens pledged and several doctors pledged

half a year’s pay to the fund.

It was a

Herculean effort, but 10

days before the December

7, 1957 deadline, the fund

was still $27,000 short.

With no possibility for an

extension, the community

knew it was now or never as

an 11th hour plea went out.

The suggested minimum

pledge was $5 per month for

18 months, or $90.

DID YOU KNOW

Four days before the deadline, the Mountain Democrat

newspaper carried a simple headline: “SUCCESS” Donors

Boost Funds Past Goal. In the end, the fundraising campaign

surpassed its goal by $51,514. One can imagine it was a

scene straight out of It’s a Wonderful Life, with townspeople

emptying their coffers to save a cause they believed in, to

invest in the community and its health. The Mountain

Democrat wrote, “It was the most worthwhile project ever

undertaken… and truly shows that El Dorado County can and

does band together for the betterment of the community.”

Marshall Hospital was built and opened in July, 1959.

Today, Marshall Hospital celebrates 60 years and stands

as one of the few remaining independent hospitals in the

nation. Marshall attributes its success to local governance by

a volunteer community board of directors and local hospital

authority, which allows for quick and nimble management

and reinvestment of profits back into improving the nonprofit

community hospital. For more information, visit www.

COVER STORY

A lasting

impression

SPECIAL AD SECTION

So much good

was done for me at

Marshall, I wanted

to do some good

there too.

As a teenager, Nat Sherrill’s first job was night-shift

maintenance work at a hospital. “I got to see behind the

scenes,” he says, reflecting on the hard work he observed

by both caregivers and grounds maintenance staff alike.

That experience stuck with him in the more than six

decades since.

Hard work was not lost on Nat and his wife, Jan, both in

their 80s now and retired in the Central California Coast.

Professionally, Nat worked as an engineer for the US Geological Survey and Jan

as an administrator at Stanford University. But what ultimately defined them was

their passion for wine, and eventually, wine making. Nat and Jan began making

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

next to their garage.

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

They opened Sherrill Cellars in 1973 in the basement of the post office in Woodside

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

surrounded by vineyards and a community of local vintners that became their family.

ago, Nat and Jan experienced a lifealtering

experience while visiting

friends in the area. “It was 2009,”

said Nat. “I wasn’t feeling well. I saw

a doctor and was treated for internal

bleeding.” After eventually getting a

clean bill of health, they decided to

travel to El Dorado County for a visit.

Unfortunately, this was the time they

discovered Nat’s internal bleeding

hadn’t been resolved after all. After

passing out from severe blood loss,

Nat was rushed to Marshall Hospital’s

Emergency Room. “I was in poor

shape when I arrived at Marshall,”

he recalled. “One of the things I do

remember was a nurse saying, ‘my

god, look at his color!’” Nat was given

10 units of blood and spent six days in

Marshall’s Intensive Care Unit.

This was not the vacation they had

envisioned, but the Sherrills were

grateful for the care. “I was stunned at

the contrast between my local hospital

and Marshall and I still am, to this day,”

shares Nat. He spoke wistfully at the

expertise and bedside manner of all who

cared for him. “It was above and beyond

what I’d ever experienced at a hospital.

It’s difficult to explain to people what

staying there was like. It was more like a

resort than a hospital. The care was top

notch and the food was sensational. It

was tasty and well-prepared.”

seem to get the short end of the stick. So

I’ve made sure some money will go to

them, as well as the ER, which always

needs money.”

“You never know how your everyday

work will impact others,” says Jamie

Johnson, Executive Director of the

Marshall Foundation for Community

Health. “It is heartwarming to hear this

story and we are honored to receive this

legacy gift recognizing the excellent care

and lasting impression Marshall has left

on the Sherrill family.”

By 1981 the winery became Jan’s fulltime

venture. Sherrill Cellars was a

modest success, annually producing

up to 2,000 cases of Chardonnay,

Zinfandel, Chenin Blanc, Petite Syrah,

Cabernet and Barbera sold to local

stores on the peninsula.

In 1995, Nat and Jan retired, sold the

winery and moved to a ranch on the

Central Coast. Ever the gentleman

farmers, the Sherrills decided then

to raise alpacas. Each day, they

experience the soothing peace of

watching alpacas graze on their

pasture.

Though the Sherrills have never lived

in El Dorado County, about ten years

And so it came full circle – from the

experience of his youth working in a

hospital – to becoming the recipient of

the dedicated care and compassion that

saved his life. Nat and Jan did not have

children, so when it came to deciding

where to leave his half of their estate, Nat

decided to leave a substantial amount to

Marshall Medical Center. “So much good

was done for me at Marshall, I wanted

to do some good there too,” he says. “As

a consumer of quite a bit of medical

care, I know how important continuous

training and education are to medical

professionals.” He has allotted a portion

of his gift to the continuing medical

education of nurses to return what was

generously given to him. Referring

back to his memories of working

maintenance at the hospital, Nat adds,

“Even at 16 I could appreciate that the

kitchen, buildings and grounds people

Surgery in a New Age

The art of surgery has

come quite far in the

past decade. Procedures

that used to involve

large incisions and

lengthy, painful recoveries can now

be performed with only a few small

incisions. With the help of modern tools

such as the da Vinci surgical robot,

surgeons can manipulate instruments

more acutely. With just one instrument,

surgeons are able to grasp, cut and

coagulate, almost negating the need to

use stitches and reducing the amount

of blood lost during surgery. Surgeons

are further assisted with a more refined

3-D camera. This allows surgeons to

conduct a wider variety of surgeries

laparoscopically. Patients will have less

pain, leave the hospital more quickly

and get back to normal activities sooner.

Marshall Medical Center is now home

to a new, upgraded da Vinci surgical

robot, the Xi model, for minimally

invasive surgery. Robert Carter,

gynecologist at Marshall OB/GYN,

has performed hundreds of robotic

surgeries. “The new robot provides

better optics, more flexibility and

smaller instruments,” he adds.

Utilizing the da Vinci robot, Marshall

has set a superb standard of care with

better outcomes. For example, patients

who’ve undergone an outpatient

hysterectomy at other hospitals would

spend up to 24 hours at the surgery

center, while Marshall patients typically

go home after only four hours. Some

patients even return to work in as little

as one week following surgery.

Minimally invasive robotic-assisted

surgery may be used for conditions

such as:

• Hysterectomy

• Inguinal, hiatal and ventral hernia

repairs

• Diverticulitis, sessile polyp

• Colon cancer, pre- or malignant

polyp

• Foregut surgery – anti-reflux

Talk to your physician about the

availability and appropriateness of da

Vinci surgery for your condition. The

medical experts at Marshall Medical

Center are ready to help.

The Importance of Immunizations

Some parents may be nervous about immunizing their

children, but doctors want you to know vaccinations are

important both for the health of your child and for the health

of others. When a population is immunized, the diseases

become less prevalent and therefore reduce the number of deaths

associated with them.

Rest assured, if your child has a negative reaction to any

immunization, your pediatrician or family medicine practitioner

will adjust the immunization appropriately. Most commonly, an

unusual reaction will occur for immunizations given in groups, such

as measles, mumps and

rubella. In this case, the

doctor may choose to space

these out over a few months

to reduce the likelihood of a

negative reaction.

elationship with our new patient and

to discuss important subjects such

as safer sex, contraception, sexually

transmitted diseases, menstruation,

personal hygiene and any concerns

a young woman may have about her

body and how it’s changing.” She adds

that the early teen years can be rife with

concerns about body image, weight,

and many emotionally difficult things a

girl may be growing through. “We try to

make that first visit as comfortable and

open as possible, where the patient feels

free to be honest about their concerns

with an impartial person who cares

about their health.”

Your teen’s

first GYN visit

It’s a delicate topic for

young women and their

parents alike, but the

conversation about a girl’s

changing body during

puberty should not be

delayed. Young women are

maturing more quickly

these days and the cause

is a source of debate,

but this merely means that keeping

communication open and honest is more

important than ever. A key question to

answer is, when is the right time for that

all-important first appointment with an

OB/GYN physician?

Pediatricians and family practice

physicians provide important,

comprehensive care for the first years

of life, but depending on the provider,

not all may feel comfortable extending

that care to specifically female needs.

That’s where a trained specialist in

women’s health comes in. One like

Michele Cherry, DO, an obstetrics and

gynecology physician at Marshall OB/

GYN in Placerville. She’s careful to

point out there are different types of

appointments that are appropriate

depending on a young woman’s age and

specific female health needs.

“Barring health concerns, pregnancy,

difficult menstruation or infections, I

recommend that young women have

their first internal pelvic exam, pap

test and breast exam at 21 years of age,”

Dr. Cherry explains. “However, it’s a

good idea for girls to have an initial

consultation and visit with an OB/

GYN doctor in their early teen years,

somewhere between 13 and 15.”

The difference between the two types of

appointments is that for younger girls --

again barring early sexual activity-- the

visit with their new OB/GYN is focused

on patient education. Dr. Cherry says,

“It’s a chance for us to establish the

If a teen girl is sexually active, a

complete examination including pelvic

and pap test is crucial, to ensure no

infections are present and to educate

the patient about making smart choices

and protecting herself and her growing

and changing body. For the teen girl

who is not sexually active, this first

appointment with an OB/GYN provider

is equally important, though lacking

the exam component for good reason.

ACOG reports there is no clinical

support for a pelvic exam or screening

prior to 21 years of age in a nonsexually

active patient without female

health concerns.

As Dr. Cherry explains, “an initial

appointment in early teen years is

an ideal way to establish a trusting

relationship between patient and

physician and to introduce young

women to important topics during a

non-threatening, pleasant visit that

doesn’t include the pelvic or breast

exam component, which can be

intimidating to younger girls.”

Marshall OB/GYN providers are

currently accepting new patients.

DINING OUT

Milestone

BY LORN RANDALL // PHOTOS BY MENKA BELGAL

I always look forward to brunch. Enjoying a Sunday out

with loved ones never fails to set the tone for the remnants

of a busy weekend—aka, relaxing at home. With that in

mind, I made my way to Milestone in El Dorado Hills. What I

discovered was a modern, cozy, and comfortable restaurant

filled with friendly faces.

SOS

“NOW I KNOW WHY

EVERYONE IN THE PLACE

WAS HAPPY—BACON

PANCAKE DONUT HOLES

DUSTED WITH POWDERED

SUGAR ALONGSIDE

WARM MAPLE SYRUP

WOULD BRING A SMILE TO

ANYONE’S FACE.”

It should come as no surprise to anyone that I’m a proponent of

independently owned and operated establishments—and chef-owners,

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

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

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

while our table talked and enjoyed coffee and mimosas, was a sublime start.

“Bacon pancake donut holes?” our server asked. Naturally, we said

yes. Now I know why everyone in the place was happy—bacon pancake

donut holes dusted with powdered sugar alongside warm maple syrup

would bring a smile to anyone’s face.

From here on out, the possibilities had my brain scrambling: “What to

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

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

seen me coming. The new and (greatly) improved version here included

wonderfully succulent shredded short ribs in a rich, creamy gravy with

fried eggs atop toast. If only my dad had known about short ribs…

Next was Milestone’s take on huevos

rancheros—a hearty, Cabo resort-style version

with black beans, shredded potatoes, overmedium

eggs, farmers’ cheese, pickled carrots,

cilantro, and large grilled shrimp in a tantalizing,

slightly piquant South-of-the-border sauce. Muy

delicioso!

Once more from the “count your calories

tomorrow” mantra, I had to try the French dip

Benedict with sliced wagyu beef, grilled onions,

horseradish, poached eggs, cheese, and a silky

demi-glace finish; in other words, decadence

defined. Each bite had me brainstorming how I’d

Huevos Rancheros attempt to recreate it at home.

Moving on to something light, I opted for

one of my favorite flavor combinations: a savory tartine with warm brie,

apples, chicken, and walnuts. Served with a house salad, it was a simple yet

satisfying choice—the perfect complement to a chilled glass of champagne

and the end of a late-morning celebration of good food and friends.

Thank you, Alexa and Nick, for an enjoyable dining experience and your

commitment to “Milestone for All”—a growing fund for deserving families

affected by natural disasters or unforeseen hardships.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

rampant around these parts. Enjoy the plates below with a pint,

and let the good times roll.

The aptly named Loaded

Nachos at Bar 101 in

Roseville are the perfect

shareable before a night

helping of crispy chips

are coated in cheesy

goodness and piled

high with a bevy of tasty

toppings: black olives,

fresh guac, sour cream,

pico de gallo, jalapeños,

refried beans, green

onions, and your choice

of protein (shredded

chicken, carnitas, or

ground beef). With so

many fresh fixin’s and just

enough guilt, it’s a dish

you’ll regularly return to.

I always drool when

it comes to anything

with blue cheese and

bacon. That being said,

I recently tried the The

Bleu Cue Burger at The

Breakroom in Shingle

Springs and departed

incredibly satisfied and

satiated. It was every bit

as heavenly as I’d hoped.

The 1/3-pound patty

was juicy and fresh, and

the combination of blue

smoked bacon with

lettuce, tomato, fried

a messy mouthful that

I’ll gladly order again.

been serving up Fish

time in their traditional

and they’re a great

catch (pun intended).

The generous portion

and perfectly fried; and

paired with the crispy,

lightly salted, thick-cut

chips, malt vinegar, and

tartar sauce, I’m never

sure what to dig, or dip,

into first. facebook.com/

Placerville Public House.

It’s made me smile on

enough occasions that

I’ve stopped asking for

a menu altogether! Can

you blame me though?

Comfort food, for me,

has always meant a

freshly baked meat pie

with a savory exterior

and indulgent interior,

and that’s exactly what

I’ve found in the Cottage

Pie at 36 Handles in El

Dorado Hills. Every forkful

is chock-full of minced

meat (Certified Angus

Beef) and English peas

enveloped in a rich,

tomato-based sauce with

a buttery mashed potato

topping. If my mom wasn’t

always my dinner date,

I’d think she was in the

kitchen! 36handles.com

There aren’t enough

words to describe the

aptly named Blind

Pig Mac at Rocklin’s

Boneshaker Public

House. But that won’t

stop me from trying. The

sweetness of the pulled

pork, al dente penne

pasta, and creaminess

of the melty mozzarellacheddar

makes for quite the sinful

delight. Did I mention it

Boxty

Submitted by The Monk’s Cellar, 240 Vernon Street, Roseville, 916-

786-6665, monkscellar.com

An Irish potato pancake, boxty has been around for hundreds

of years in Ireland and is often eaten as a side dish at breakfast.

Nowadays, it's dressed up quite a bit, often layered with meats and

vegetables.

1 cup raw potato, grated

1 cup previously boiled and

mashed potatoes, chilled

1 cup flour

1/4 cup milk

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. fresh thyme, chopped

1/2 tsp. fresh rosemary,

chopped

1 tbsp. onion, minced

1 tbsp. button mushrooms,

minced

1 1/2 tbsp. salt, plus more for

serving

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 tbsp. butter

Place grated potatoes in cloth (or

cheesecloth) and squeeze out as much

liquid as possible. Combine cold mashed

potatoes with grated potatoes, flour, milk,

baking powder, herbs, minced onion,

mushrooms, salt, and pepper.

Roll dough into a 3” x 2” log or cylinder.

Try to pack your potato mixture into this

log shape tightly, which can be done by

spooning the mixture onto cheesecloth

and rolling into the log, then patting and

molding, or simply by patting or molding

with your hands.

Fill a stock pot (at least 6 quarts) with

water and bring to a rolling boil. Turn

down to a simmer and add the tightly

packed potato log. Simmer for 1 hour.

Remove and let cool in refrigerator

overnight.

Once cooled, and prior to serving, slice

into desired thickness, typically between

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

skillet and fry each round until golden

brown. Lightly salt and serve as desired.
