‘Tis the season to reflect on what we’re thankful for. And though it’s easy to take our blessings for granted, November’s a prime time to recall the people, places, and things that bring us joy. Plus, studies show that giving thanks makes a person happier and healthier.
Are you looking for ways to grow gratitude? This month’s issue is full of ideas—starting with The 10 Spot on page 20, featuring easy things everyone can do to give back—from picking up trash and assisting area food banks, to paying for the person’s coffee behind you. After all, helping others helps you and is a surefire way to cultivate contentment.
Practicing mindfulness—by being aware and appreciative of the present moment—is another quick ticket to bliss. Do just that by venturing out of doors and soaking in some fresh fall air. In Take a Hike (page 22) we have the perfect trail to elevate your endorphins and mood. Up the fun factor by inviting a coworker, long-lost pal, or your pup along, too, and stopping for a pre- or post-hike pint (our region’s bevy of craft breweries is yet another reason to smile this season).
Indulging in a memorable meal may quite possibly be the most obvious ingredient to happiness. In the pages that follow, we have a bounty of ways to satisfy your belly and soul, from five “souper” soups in town (page 87) to myriad recipes for one-pot dinners (page 88) and autumn-inspired sides (page 45) that are best shared amongst family and friends.
As you savor the comfort food, comfortable clothes, and company of loved ones this month, remember to press pause and recognize all the positivity that surrounds us all each and every day. Cheers!

| editor’s letter |

One baby, two paranoid visits to the pediatrician, and zero restful nights

later, and I’m back!

On June 22 at 3:59 a.m., I became a mom and, as cliché as it sounds,

am forever changed. It’s as emotional, exhausting, and exhilarating

as everyone warned me, but even more incredible than I imagined.

Despite the diaper

blowouts, middle-of-the-night wake-up

calls, and inconsolable crying fits where I

sometimes end up crying too, my heart’s

never been happier. I’ve also never been

as grateful to have a hands-on, helpful

husband; gracious grandparents; and

competent coworkers who stepped up amid

my absence. Yep, childrearing really does

take a village…and a lot of coffee.

Speaking of gratefulness, ‘tis the season

to reflect on what we’re thankful for. And

though it’s easy to take our blessings for

granted, November’s a prime time to recall

the people, places, and things that bring us

joy. Plus, studies show that giving thanks

makes a person happier and healthier.

Are you looking for ways to grow

gratitude? This month’s issue is full of ideas—starting with

The 10 Spot on page 20, featuring easy things everyone can do to

give back—from picking up trash and assisting area food banks,

to paying for the person’s coffee behind you. After all, helping

others helps you and is a surefire way to cultivate contentment.

Practicing mindfulness—by being aware and appreciative of

the present moment—is another quick ticket to bliss. Do just

that by venturing out of doors and soaking in some fresh fall air.

In Take a Hike (page 22) we have the perfect trail to elevate your

endorphins and mood. Up the fun factor by inviting a coworker,

long-lost pal, or your pup along, too, and stopping for a pre- or

post-hike pint (our region’s

“The secret to

happiness is

to count your

blessings while

others are

adding up their

troubles.”

—William Penn

bevy of craft breweries is yet

another reason to smile this season).

Indulging in a memorable meal may quite possibly be

the most obvious ingredient to happiness. In the pages that

follow, we have a bounty of ways to satisfy your belly and soul,

from five “souper” soups in town (page 87) to myriad recipes

for one-pot dinners (page 88) and autumn-inspired sides

(page 45) that are best shared amongst family and friends.

WHAT’S YOUR

FAVORITE

THANKSGIVING

FOOD?

“With turkey being a super close

second, I can’t resist piling my plate

with stuffing and then going back

for more. Between the texture of

the breadcrumbs, and the savory,

salty combo of those festive herbs

and spices, my addiction is real.”

—Gary Zsigo

“Stuffing! Vegan, of course.”

—Taylor Gillespie

“Sweet potato pie with whipped

cream on top.”—Sidney Dorris

“My mom's homemade potato rolls.

They incorporate mashed potatoes

into the dough, which create a

taste unlike any other! Top that

with butter and ohmigod(!)—hello,

happy belly.”—Tara Harbert

“Mashed potatoes and rolls; I’m all

about the carbs.”—Julie Ryan

“Pecan pie!”—Reg Holliday

“Does a dinner roll filled with

stuffing, cranberry sauce, and

gravy count as one food? I love all

the classics!”—Emily Peter

“Making sweet potato pancakes

with the leftover sweet potato

casserole. They’re always a Black

Friday favorite!”—Lorn Randall

Firas Nassif, DMD

Granite Bay resident Firas Nassif, DMD—

who’s practiced dentistry since 2001 in

Roseville—insists he isn’t into numbers,

but he set this year’s fundraising record

for the Greater Sacramento Chapter of

the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s

(LLS) Man & Woman of the Year

campaign—earning him the title of 2019

Man of the Year. Over the course of the

10-week philanthropic competition, he

and his teammates raised $200,000—

money that will help LLS with their

mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma,

Hodgkin’s disease, and myeloma; and

improve the quality of life for patients

and their families. “Eighty cents of every

dollar donated goes to the actual cause,”

Dr. Nassif says.

A leukemia survivor himself, Dr. Nassif

says maintaining a positive attitude

daily and not getting mired in negativity

helps yourself and those around you,

too. “Through faith and learning that

bad things are a test of our strength...[it]

helps us to overcome [them],” he says.

Married for 14 years, the Nassifs have

three children. “Every day when I wake

up, I count my blessing(s) and strive for

my daily purpose. It’s my family that tops

that list.” —Domino Soleil

Give Where You Live

By Megan Wiskus

In the spirit of the impending holiday season, we compiled a list

of 10 easy ways to give back. From volunteering for a cause you

care about, to random acts of kindness, there’s a need you can

certainly feed. Ready, set, serve!

Beautify your backyard by heading to

a local park or nearby trail and filling a

plastic bag with litter.

Visit a senior center and play games,

read books, or simply converse with

lonely residents.

Play with puppies. Animal

shelters are always in need

of assistance—from dog

walking and kennel

cleanup to caring

for kitties.

Assist area food banks in myriad

ways—whether it’s sorting, packaging,

and distributing food; or donating

hygiene kits, canned goods, and other

items to the organization.

Be a good neighbor by baking and

delivering cookies to someone’s

doorstep, rolling in their recycling, or

sharing excess produce from your

garden.

Be book smart. Libraries are a prime

place to lend a helping hand. Tasks

like tutoring kids and shelving books

are typically in demand.

Help the homeless. Drop off a bagged

lunch, leftovers, warm blankets, or a

pair of socks to someone in need.

Pay it backwards. Next time you’re

in line for your morning cup of coffee,

pay for the patron’s order behind you.

Give blood. According to givingblood.

org, blood is needed every two

seconds. Find a blood bank near you

at aabb.org/tm/donation/pages/

blood-bank-locator.aspx.

Lights, camera, action! Have

a passion for performing arts?

Check with your local theater for

current needs, which might include

ushering, marketing, set design, or

administrative duties.

Take a Hike

PIONEER EXPRESS TRAIL

BY EMILY PETER

ask the experts

Q: ARE WINDOW TREATMENTS

NECESSARY IN NEWER HOMES?

A: As technologies change,

modern building materials have

become more energy efficient

and many windows have extra

protection for energy savings

and UV protection, but they’re

rarely a substitute for window

coverings. The protection you

receive from window treatments

can be experienced year-round.

In winter, when your home loses

heat through exposed glass,

interior window shades act as a

buffer to keep the heat in and the

cold out; come summer, the heat

and harmful ultraviolet (fading

rays) can be blocked with quality

window treatments. What’s more,

they add to your home’s value and

interior beauty, too.

Do you have a favorite trail in the

region you’d like to see featured? Tell us

all about it at info@stylemg.com.

LOCATED IN: Folsom; search “Pioneer Express Trail” in

Google Maps.

DISTANCE: Fourteen miles point to point; minimal

elevation gain.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Dog-friendly (must be

leashed); no biking allowed; parking is $12.

FUEL UP: Dominick’s Italian Market & Deli (8621

Folsom-Auburn Road, Granite Bay) offers sandwiches,

soups, salads, pizzas, and more in relaxed environs.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Follows Folsom Lake; provides lake

and forest views; option to hike as much or little as you

like; fairly flat; well-maintained; can be accessed at

multiple points between Folsom and Auburn.

Trail Notes: Wear shoes with traction, dress in layers, bring

extra water and snacks, remember sun protection (hat,

sunscreen), and, as always, pack out what you pack in.

Remember to keep to the right, and that horses have the

right of way over hikers.

FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT ALLTRAILS.COM/TRAIL/US/

CALIFORNIA/PIONEER-EXPRESS-TRAIL.

Q: WHAT TYPE OF KITCHEN

LAYOUT IS THE MOST

FUNCTIONAL?

A: It’s really about how you use

your kitchen. Most pro chefs

I know love a galley kitchen,

because it eliminates the amount

of steps needed to be efficient.

With today’s kitchens being the

“hub” of the house, however,

they’ve become a gathering space,

so an “L” shape with an island

provides a similar efficiency and

tend to be the most functional.

They allow for a workflow around

the island—especially if you have

multiple cooks—and give more

space for appliances, a sink, or

extra counter space.

Giving Back

Rise Against

Hunger

Feeding a Global Need

by SUSAN WALLACE

Jim Quinney has traveled to

Haiti four times and can tell

you firsthand where the food

packaged by local volunteers

goes. How does he know these details? He

works for Rise Against Hunger as their

community engagement manager—a

stark contrast from his former career

in the insurance industry—and loves it.

He began as a volunteer about five years

ago and recently celebrated his one-year

anniversary as a member of the team.

“Rise Against Hunger, an international

relief organization, aims to show the world

that it is, in fact, possible to end hunger

by the year 2030” (2019 Fact Sheet). They

hope to accomplish this goal by enlisting

myriad volunteers who essentially find a

room; set up assembly lines; and spend

time measuring, weighing, and packaging

rice, soy-based products, dehydrated

vegetables, and other protein sources for

easy transport and cooking to countries

in need. The packages are then saved in

a warehouse; when 285,000 meals are

ready, a shipping container leaves for its

destination across the ocean.

The nonprofit has served in 74

different countries and currently works

in 34 countries, in addition to locations

experiencing sudden and ongoing

crises, such as the Bahamas after being

impacted by Hurricane Dorian. The

packages—which are boxed to include

36 bags—can feed one child 216 meals

wich will sustain a child for a full school

year. According to Quinney, this may be

the only food the child has access to in

countries such as Haiti.

“I love sharing my experiences [and

stories of success with the community,

churches, and civic clubs] and transforming

people [while changing their] perception

and how they view ending hunger,” says

Quinney, who shares that “8,000 or more

children die every day from malnutrition.”

This program can help decrease, if not end,

that fact.

In addition to the packaged meals, Rise

Against Hunger also helps communities

build small gardens to assist with

improving access to healthy food. An

example of success in Cambodia—where

mushroom farms have been established—

allows farmers to sell the produce and

create a small-scale economy.

Another success in Vietnam includes

opportunities for women to start

businesses with “micro grants,”

which gives them money to launch

their chance for independence. “We

empower communities by increasing

self-sufficiency through the promotion

of agriculture development, business

skills training, and market access” (2019

Fact Sheet).

Quinney shares his passion about this work. “It’s big, but it’s not unsolvable…if we

collectively get there by not tolerating that level of suffering, saying no to hunger, and

deciding for ourselves that we’re going to do something.” Rise Against Hunger strives

to meet a three-year goal set in 2018 of increasing the number of meals sent, as well as

assisting in breaking the cycle of poverty, and they’re well on their way.

Spotlight onSparrow

by HEATHER L. NELSON

Photo by Dante Fontana.

El Dorado Hills’-based rock band Sparrow consists of high

school students Brandon Bagley on rhythm guitar and

vocals, Sam Kallan on lead guitar, Chad Vogan on bass,

Owen Schumacher on piano, and Gavin Verandez on drums. Playing

together now for a little over a year, the group has rocked local

venues such as El Dorado Saloon & Grill, The Boardwalk, Holy Diver,

and The Silver Orange. Influenced by classics such as Guns N’ Roses,

Green Day, 311, Weezer, and Nirvana, Sparrow is wary of pigeonholing

themselves into just one genre. “We want people to hear something

passionate...something they’ve never heard before that reminds them

of the artists and bands they love and remember.”

HLN: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR

SOUND?

SPARROW: Each of us come from different

backgrounds: everything from punk and pop, to

metal, reggae, and [more]. We kind of mix [all these

sounds] together to come up with something new.

What makes us stand out is the fact that we really

don’t pick a genre or style—we play whatever we’re

passionate about. When we write our songs together,

we start with a riff, a melody, or even a concept; from

there, they start to expand and take shape on their

own.

HLN: AS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, HOW

DO YOU FIND THE TIME TO CREATE MUSIC

AND REHEARSE TOGETHER?

SPARROW: When asked this, we often joke,

“It just depends how much you care about your

grades.” In all honesty, it’s definitely a busy lifestyle,

but somehow we’ve managed to find a balance that

works for us.

HLN: WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT

YOUR COMMUNITY?

SPARROW: What we really love about living in El

Dorado Hills is that the community is super [close].

All we need is a place to play, and the people [come

to support] us.

HLN: WHAT

DO YOU LOVE

MOST ABOUT

PERFORMING?

SPARROW:

Live shows are

our favorite part

of being in a

band; we all love

to move when

we play and like

seeing that energy spill from the stage to the crowd.

We want to share our music with as many people as

possible and love making music that makes people

want to get up and dance.

HLN: WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE GOALS?

SPARROW: It’s all of our dreams to turn music

into a career one day; for now, we want to [continue

making] passionate music.

HLN: ANY ADVICE FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS

STARTING OUT?

SPARROW: Play with many [different] people

and as often as possible; practice is the first step to

everything.

Brussels Sprouts with

Bacon, Balsamic Reduction,

and Goat Cheese

Submitted by Executive Chef

Paul Thompson, Sienna Roseville,

1480 Eureka Road, Roseville,

916-771-4700; 3909 Park

Drive, El Dorado Hills, 916-

941-9694, siennarestaurants.com

• 5 cups vegetable oil

• 4 cups Brussels sprouts, cut

into quarters

• 1 tbsp. butter

• 4 tbsp. bacon, rendered and

chopped

• Salt and pepper, to taste

• 1 tsp. balsamic reduction

(can be store-bought)

• 1 tbsp. goat cheese, crumbled

Heat vegetable oil in a deep

pot to 350 degrees. Blanch

Brussels sprouts in boiling

water for 4 minutes. Strain

and shock in ice water. Once

cooled, strain till dry and

drop into the fryer. Cook 2-4

minutes, until the Brussels

sprouts start to turn dark

golden brown.

Heat a sauté pan on medium

heat and add butter. Once the

butter has melted, add in the

Brussels sprouts, bacon, salt,

and pepper. Toss ingredients

together and plate with goat

cheese and balsamic reduction.

PRO TIP: To make your own

balsamic reduction, bring 1

cup of high-quality balsamic

vinegar to a boil on mediumhigh

heat. Reduce flame and

let simmer for 5-7 minutes.

Stir occasionally. Remove from

heat, cool, and serve or store in

the fridge.

“SHOP-YOUR-YARD”

THANKSGIVING DÉCOR

When we moved into our home a few

years ago, I was surprised to find so

many different plants on our little patch

of property—several varieties of roses,

a flaming pink crepe myrtle, bright

yellow daffodils, and others I can’t name.

I’ve added my own plants to the mix,

too—citrus trees, some sweet peas, and

different annuals in the front window box.

I soon started taking cuttings of some

of the plants and sticking them in a big

white pitcher on our table. This year, I’m

taking that concept of “shopping our

yard” and designing a simple but elegant

tablescape for Thanksgiving using some

of the plants in my yard (and a neighbor’s

yard—she has a mandarin tree!).

To ground my Thanksgiving table

décor, I found some sparkly gold

wrapping paper and used it as a table

runner. On top of that is a river of

redwood and mandarin branches—the

more the better. Pinecones bring an

element of fall without going overboard.

In the center is my white pitcher.

Within the branches, I have simple

white candles and glass votives to bring

some ambiance. For each place setting, I

kept it simple: a gold charger with white

plates and a mandarin with a pretty

green paper leaf and the guest’s name

(attached with a pushpin)—finished off

with cut crystal plastic cups and cutlery.

I also designed a “thankful” printable

(downloadable at heyletsmakestuff.com)

with the mandarin orange theme, which

is a great way to have your guests reflect

on the things that really matter.

This Thanksgiving table is so easy to

create that I can focus on what really

makes Thanksgiving special: the food…I

mean, family. OK, it’s a tie!

Japanese Sweet Potato and

Miso Purée

Submitted by Executive Chef Brian

Ikenoyama, Fat’s Asia Bistro,

1500 Eureka Road, Roseville,

916-787-3287; 2585 Iron Point

Road, Folsom, 916-983-1133,

fatsasiabistro.com

• 2 lb. Japanese sweet potatoes

• 1 1/2 cups heavy cream,

warmed

• 1 1/2 tsp. salt

• 1 lb. butter, unsalted, diced into

1 cm pieces and kept chilled

• 2 tbsp. shiro (white) miso

Peel sweet potatoes and cut into

1-inch pieces. Boil or steam until

fully cooked, where a fork easily

pierces through them. Drain, but

don’t cool.

Place into a food processor. Add

cream and salt. Process for about

15 seconds until potatoes are

completely smooth. Add the

butter and continue to process

for another 15 seconds. Add the

miso and mix for another few

seconds until it’s incorporated.

Serve immediately.

PRO TIP: Japanese sweet potatoes

are white on the inside rather

than the orange or yellow centers

of regular sweet potatoes and are

available at Asian markets.

Pomegranate Salad

Submitted by Chef Nick Alves,

La Provence Restaurant &

Terrace, 110 Diamond Creek

Place, Roseville, 916-789-

2002, laprovenceroseville.com

• 3 oz. organic baby spinach

• 2 oz. Fuyu persimmons,

peeled and sliced

• 2 oz. pomegranate

vinaigrette (recipe below)

• 1/2 oz. candied walnuts

(recipe below)

• 1 tbsp. pomegranate seeds

• 2 tbsp. ricotta cheese

*Individual serving

Pomegranate Vinaigrette

• 3/4 cup pomegranate seeds

or purée

• 2 cups grapeseed oil

• 1/4 cup honey

• 1 tbsp. lemon juice

• 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

• 1 tsp. Dijon mustard

• Pinch of sea salt

Put all ingredients except

oil in a Vitamix (or other

high-powered blender) and

blend on low speed, gradually

increasing to high while

slowly adding oil. Continue

blending on high for 30-

60 seconds or until your

dressing is smooth and all the

pomegranate seeds have been

blended.

Candied Walnuts

• 4 oz. unsalted butter

• 4 oz. honey

• 1 lb. walnuts

Melt butter and stir in honey

over medium-low heat. Add

walnuts, then reduce heat to

low. Simmer for 3-5 minutes

and let cool before assembling

salad and adding to it.

PRO TIP: This is the season

for persimmons. Pick the

Fuyu variety that can be

eaten raw. Look for smooth,

blemish-free skin with a bit

of give. The green cap should

still be attached and fresh in

appearance.

Apple Berry Crisp

Submitted by Chefs Brian Bennett and Nicole Wright,

Bennett’s Kitchen Bar Market, 1595 Eureka Road,

Roseville, 916-750-5150, bennettskitchen.com

• 10 cups Granny Smith apples (about 12 medium)

• 2 cups blackberries or blueberries

• 1 1/2 cups sugar

• 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

• 1/2 cup lemon juice

• 1/2 cup bourbon

• 3 tbsp. cornstarch

Crisp Topping

• 3/4 cup brown sugar

• 3/4 cup sugar

• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

• 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

• 1 tsp. fresh nutmeg

• 1 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon

• 3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

• 1 cup oatmeal

• 1 cup cold, unsalted butter, diced (keep cold)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13x2-inch

baking dish. Peel, core, and cut the apples into 1-inch

chunks. Toss apples and berries in lemon juice and

bourbon; combine sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch

and mix in with the fruit. Pour into baking dish.

To make the topping, combine sugars, flour, salt,

nutmeg, cinnamon, nuts, oatmeal, and cold butter in

the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle

attachment. Mix on low speed until the mixture is

crumbly and the butter is the size of peas. Scatter

evenly over the apple berry mixture. Do not over mix.

Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake for 1

hour until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly.

Serve warm and top with ice cream or whipped cream.

PRO TIP: Gluten-free preference: Replace all-purpose

flour with Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten-free baking

flour. Vegan preference: Replace butter with margarine.

Teetotalers: Omit the bourbon.

Stop the Itch:

Allergies 101

Does your dog keep you awake at night with

constant scratching, licking, and chewing at

their skin? Just like humans, dogs can develop

allergies when their immune systems acquire

sensitivities to environmental allergens, such

as plant pollens, mold spores, dust mites,

cat dander, food ingredients, fleabites, and

certain shampoos or perfumes. Allergens can

be problematic when inhaled, ingested, or when

they come into contact with your dog’s skin.

How are allergies treated in dogs?

Traditional first-line therapies often include

medications, such as antibiotics and

cortisone, which are necessary to treat an

active inflammatory skin process but don’t

offer prolonged relief and oftentimes have

undesirable side effects—especially if used

long-term.

Improved therapies are now available for

longer, safer, and more effective management,

including Apoquel (oral tablet) and Cytopoint

(injectable solution). These newer treatment

options work to break the itching cycle by

blocking receptors in the body that react to

proteins called cytokines, or by binding up

specific cytokines that trigger itching with

a class of substances called monoclonal

antibodies. Both medications are generally well

tolerated, have minimal side effects, and almost

no interactions with other medications.

Utilizing these newer medications, in

addition to approaching the management

of allergic skin disease with

diet therapy, Eastern

medicine, topical

treatments, and

supplements

creates many effective options to help our animal

patients. This multimodal approach has enabled

veterinarians to minimize the use of cortisone,

ultimately reducing its long-term side effects.

Bone Appétit: The

Great Grain Debate

There has been significant discussion in the pet

world over the question of grain-free pet food and

its potential to influence a heart condition called

dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Historically, this

condition was found predominantly in specific, largebreed

dogs. From 2014-2017, there were seven reported

cases of this malady.

The issue is a contentious one, pitting several groups

against each other. Most holistic veterinarians have

dismissed the concern, while many traditional Western

veterinarians have trumpeted it.

In June, the FDA took the unusual step of publicizing

some, but not all, of the brands of dog food that were

mentioned in a small number of case reports. The

bizarre announcement was troubling—given that in

the same statement they were clear they hadn’t found

actual causation between DCM and any specific brand

or ingredients; they also recommended that people

don’t switch pet foods.

Pet food is a $91 billion global marketplace, which is

now dominated by Mars Petcare and Nestlé Purina Petcare,

whom account for 70% of domestic pet food sales. Needless

to say, influencing purchasing decisions is a big dollar

game. Mars has emerged as the top corporate owner of

veterinary practices, including ownership of Banfield,

BluePearl, Pet Partners, and—most recently—VCA, which

they purchased for $9.1 billion in September 2017.

The FDA’s move has increased percolating concerns

among independent canine nutritionists who wonder

whether pet food goliaths are using their overwhelming

market positions to influence fear among dog owners.

A conclusion to the investigation is expected to be

released next month. Whether the results show a

correlation between pet food diets, simply the effects

of over-breeding, or some other reason, your local pet

food businesses stand prepared to inform you with the

most current information possible. In the meantime,

you’ll find healthy, grain-in and grain-free options for

your pet at various local pet stores.

Holiday Hearth Safety Tips

by KERRIE L. KELLY

Tis the season for gathering

with loved ones while

taking stock of life’s

blessings—and to eat lots

of turkey. Once the feast is

devoured and the guests

have gone, our thoughts

quickly turn to garland,

Christmas trees, hanging

lights, and decking the halls.

If you’re lucky enough

to have a fireplace, you

understand it’s the ultimate

focal point during holiday time. However, when decorating

around it, it’s imperative to think safety first. Check out the

following five tips to ensure a beautiful but safe holiday

celebration.

Vegas, Baby!

It’s a Girls’ Weekend

BY SONJA RAYNE LEE

Terrace View at The Cosmopolitan

Every now and then, it’s necessary to get out of

town. Don’t you agree? What better way to do it

then with a trip to Sin City with your gal pals for

some partying, relaxing, and reconnecting?

For our girls’ weekend getaway, we hopped on a quick Southwest flight and

jetted to The Cosmopolitan (cosmopolitanlasvegas.com), the ultimate luxury

resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

The moment we walked into the lobby, we knew we were going to be

spoiled. The property exudes luxury and sophistication with a touch of

sexiness (and dare we say a little naughtiness?), a place where you can lose

yourself in a whole lot of fun.

The main center point that caught our eyes—just past the lobby—was

The Chandelier Lounge, which is split into three different levels, providing

a captivating visual experience. The stunning beaded curtains of lights were

alluring, too—making us feel as if we’d stepped into a scene of Lifestyles of

the Rich and Famous. Surrounding the lounge were the magnificent sounds

and flashing lights of the slot machines with all the classic casino table

games. (“I have to admit that my favorite slot machine is Wheel of Fortune,

and—while Lady Luck didn’t smile on me during this trip—there’s something

exhilarating about playing a few rounds with Pat and Vanna!” said one of

the girls.) Tucked away in the far corner was a Starbucks, which, of course,

became the staple for our morning coffee; be prepared to wait in line

though—it’s a pretty popular place!

For this trip, we decided to splurge and

chose the Terrace One Bedroom Fountain

View in the Boulevard Tower, and boy was it

worth it! Stepping off the elevator onto our

floor, we were greeted with a seductive wall

hanging of a woman wearing a black lace

mask with bunny ears that instantly put us all

in a feel-good mood. The dim lighting in the

hallway set a tone of relaxation as we walked

to our room. Entering the one-bedroom

suite, I immediately felt a rush of excitement;

this room was to die for: alluring artwork, a

cozy couch, spacious dressing area, and a

room with a king-sized bed adorned with

sumptuous linens. The bathroom looked

like it was straight out of Architectural

Digest—complete with a private toilet room,

vanity sinks, a huge shower, and a step-up

Jacuzzi with a view of the strip. The pièce de

résistance, however, was the huge balcony

with sliding doors that overlooked the

fountains of the Bellagio, Paris Las Vegas, and

the strip.

The Boulevard Pool

Photo by Wendy Sipple.

Day one meant poolside drinks, of course!

The Cosmopolitan offers three different

pools to choose from: The Boulevard, The

Chelsea, and Marquee Dayclub. If you want

the ultimate club experience, then the

Marquee is your scene—complete with an

extension of a nightclub in the evening. Both

The Boulevard and Chelsea offer cabana and

daybed reservations, which can be made

ahead of time on The Cosmopolitan’s website.

We opted for The Boulevard, considering it

was conveniently located in the same tower

as our room. Poolside dining included a

variety of fresh and fried deliciousness and

drinks aplenty, including frozen margaritas.

Pro tip: Arrive early to get the best lounge

chairs, as the pool fills up quickly. Poolside

cabanas and daybeds are also available, but

need to be reserved in advance and have food

and drink minimums.

After soaking up some rays and enjoying

our good eats and drinks, we were ready

to freshen up and hit the strip for some

evening excitement. If you’re not certain

what you want your evening plans to

entail, then send Rose—The Cosmpolitan’s

“Resident Mischief-Maker and Digital

Concierge”—a text; she’ll provide you with

restaurant recommendations and show

Las Vegas offers a plethora of activities,

from concerts, dancing, and gambling, to

zip lining on Fremont Street, or soaring

550 feet above the center of the strip on

Linq’s High Roller Observation Wheel

(caesars.com/linq/high-roller). Our group

opted for the latter: the world’s tallest

Ferris wheel with 360-degree views of the

Las Vegas Valley and The Strip. We chose

the Happy Half Hour ticket (available from

noon-1 a.m.), which meant an open bar in

the sky. Pro tip: Going at night provides

the best views of the city and gives you

more of a Happy Hour party vibe.

Having stayed out into the wee hours

of the morning, it was time to indulge

in some pampering. I strongly suggest

booking a penthouse suite for you and

Knowing there would be a fair amount of

adult beverages consumed during this

trip, I put together survival bags for all the

girls and recommend you do the same.

this beautiful desert-like oasis. Our host

Kimesha provided us the ultimate royal

treatment with the perfect amount of

attention and privacy. With room for up

to 10 guests for four hours, the penthouse

suite provided our group with an indulgent

us with Champagne

and refreshments, and

when we were done oohing

and aahing over the suite’s

private living and treatment areas,

were able to avail of two whirlpool tubs,

a eucalyptus steam room, showers, and a

individually hosted treatments, including

massages, facials, and mani/pedis. We spent

a good portion of our day in the private

retreat unwinding and relaxing. On our

next trip, we’ll definitely be booking a

treatment at the hammam (a ritual space

that contains a heated motherstone slab,

two whirlpools, steam rooms, and stone

loungers that can be used privately or

with up to three people).

All that relaxing makes a girl really

mecca, and the dining options at

The Cosmopolitan are abundant and

impressive. From all-day breakfast spot

Eggslut and comfort food favorite District:

Donuts. Sliders. Brew., Block 16 Urban

Food Hall, to Spanish tapas at Jaleo, and

Zuma, a high-end Japanese restaurant

with an izakaya-inspired menu, there’s

something for everyone. We checked in

with Rose, our trusty mischief-maker for

advice, and decided on Wicked Spoon:

a multicultural, high-end buffet. The

array of dishes from around the world

was a feast for the senses, complete with

amazing visual displays, invigorating

smells, sizzling sounds, and satisfying

tastes. Pro tip: Make reservations in

advance for groups of eight or more and

opt for the Bottomless Beverages package.

No trip to Vegas is complete without a

show, and we opted for Voss Events’ Drag

Brunch at Señor Frogs (dragbrunch.

com), featuring Vegas' finest female

impersonators. Admittedly, this show isn’t

for prudes, nor are you going for the food

really, but it’s pure entertainment. These

fabulous divas know how to put on a show

and work the room. It lives up to all the

hype and is a guaranteed good time. I even

got on stage with a bunch of other ladies

in a dance contest to show what we nonprofessionals

had going for us. Be prepared

to be picked on (if you’re lucky) and to be

impressed by the divas’ talents. Pro tip: Opt

for the VIP package for premium, reserved

seating, a full open bar, and to meet the

performers after the show. Oh, and bring

lots of singles (the performers dance

throughout the room, and you can’t help

but want to reward them!).

With easy flight access from

Sacramento, Las Vegas is the perfect

choice for a girls’ getaway. And, thank

goodness what happens in Vegas stays in

Vegas. Pro tip: Make your girl tribe do a

pinkie swear to reiterate, just in case!

Chillibajji

Spicy Dosa

Ineed new friends—or at least friends with a

broader palate who have the ability to drop

whatever they’re doing and join me for lunch

at previously unknown (to me), untested

restaurants. And they should have a robust knowledge

of Indian food too, because it’s frustrating trying to get

someone to join me for a steamy bowl of aloo gobi or

korma. Piqued your interest?

One of those formerly foreign destinations on

my radar was Curry Bowl in Folsom. As I entered, I

was shown the buffet table—which looked fresh and

ample—but opted to order from their menu instead. I

followed my instinct as I selected chillibajji (basically

a battered and fried chili pepper). As to the type of

pepper, research tells me it’s a mirchi—two to three

inches long and somewhat similar to a Japanese shiso.

Cut into pieces after being battered and fried, it was

served with a slightly

sweet tamarind

spice lane with the

very, very large, Curry

Bowl special: spicy

dosa. This flaming

rice crepe—its insides lightly covered in chili paste and

stuffed with potato curry—lapped over both sides of the

serving plate. Tearing pieces of the delicate, fiery dosa

off and plunging them into one of the accompanying,

cooling chutneys left me longing for more.

At this point, I deviated and went all in on chicken

tikka masala and garlic naan. Sometimes sticking with

the “norm” has its dividends. This is the combination all

entry-level Indian food newbies should start with. The

tikka masala “gravy” was a succulent, mouthwatering

amalgamation of garlic, ginger, turmeric, and garam

masala in a creamy tomato-based sauce. Paired with

the fragrant garlic naan, it’s unimaginable that anyone

could pass up an opportunity to enjoy one of the

world’s most popular Indian dishes.

As I considered the wisdom of finishing with a

homemade dessert (I couldn’t possibly though; I didn’t

even have room for a mint), I once again pondered the

folly of my reluctant friends. Spice is the variety of life…

Here’s the “scoop” on Folsom’s latest sweet spot: Their ice cream—available in over 50 flavors (including fat free and no-sugaradded

options) is made fresh daily in-house. Whether you pick a hand-packed quart or pint, pop (like a cake pop, but with ice

cream), sundae, milkshake, cone, cup, or “hurricane,” expect friendly staff, cheery décor, and rows of ice cream freezers. My

daughter went with an Oreo Dough Milkshake and said it was really good, but I had to make sure. And she was right:

creamy, cold, and perfect. Lucky for me, they have something called the 4-Scoop Sampler, which I’m assuming is for

indecisive people…or people who simply want four different flavors (I went with Salty Caramel Truffle, Chocolate

Peanut Butter Ripple, Vanilla Caramel Brownie, and Brownie Dough). Next time you need an idea for “dinner,”

Handel’s can help! 1011 East Bidwell Street, Suite 123, Folsom, 916-597-3815, @handelsfolsom —Julie Ryan

Easy Corn Chowder

Submitted by Genevieve Jerome, Folsom-based

blogger @fittyfoodlicious, fittyfoodlicious.com

• 6-8 strips bacon, cut

into small pieces

• 1 red onion,

chopped

• 4 russet potatoes

cut into small cubes

• 1 package fresh

beef or chicken

bone broth

• 2 tsp. cornstarch

(for thickening)

• 2 cups heavy cream

• *3-4 cups fresh

corn

• 3 cups shredded

cheddar cheese

• Chives, sea salt,

and black pepper,

for garnish

1. Simmer the bacon pieces in a Dutch oven

on low heat for 8-10 minutes. Once cooked

through, remove from the pot, leaving the bacon

grease.

2. Simmer the chopped red onion in the bacon

grease until translucent. Add the diced russet

potatoes and bone broth and bring to a boil.

Simmer the potatoes for about 15 minutes

until tender.

3. Whisk in the cornstarch and add the heavy

simmer for another 10 minutes. During the last

two minutes of cooking, add half of the bacon.

4. Garnish with the remaining bacon bits,

more shredded cheese, chives, sea salt, and

black pepper.

*I recommend purchasing sweet corn from

Davis Ranch Produce in Sloughhouse (typically

available through November).

New Orleans Jambalaya

Submitted by Denay DeGuzman, Sacramento-based

blogger @confettiandbliss, confettiandbliss.com

• 4 tbsp. olive oil, divided

• 2 ribs of celery, chopped

• 1 medium red onion, diced

• 3 small bell peppers

(combination of green, red,

yellow, orange), chopped

• 1 jalapeño, cored, seeded,

and diced

• 4 cloves of garlic, pressed

or minced

• 2 boneless/skinless

chicken breasts, cut into

bite-sized pieces

• Salt and pepper, to taste

Cajun Spice Blend

• 1 tsp. paprika

• 1 + 1/2 tsp. sea salt

• 1 tsp. black pepper

• 1 tsp. dried oregano

• 1/4 tsp. dried thyme

• 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

• 14 oz. package Eckrich

Smoked Sausage, sliced

• 3 cups chicken broth

• 28-ounce can crushed

tomatoes

• 2 cups long-grain rice

• *Cajun spice blend (see

below)

• 2 bay leaves

• 1 lb. raw shrimp, deveined

and tail removed

• 1 1/4 cup okra

• Green onions and fresh

parsley leaves, for garnish

• 1/2 tsp. onion powder

• 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (or

less if you don’t like spicy

foods!)

Mix all ingredients together

1. In a large, heavy pan with a lid, add 2 tablespoons

of olive oil. Add in the celery, bell peppers, onions,

jalapeño, and garlic. Sauté the veggies over mediumhigh

heat until tender, about 4 minutes.

2. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Add

another 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan with the

veggies. Fold in the chicken and sausage. Continue to

sauté everything until the chicken is almost cooked and

no longer pink.

3. Add in the chicken broth, crushed tomatoes, rice,

and Cajun spice blend. Mix with a wooden spoon to

combine all ingredients and add bay leaves. Cover and

lower the heat to medium-low. Allow the jambalaya to

simmer until the rice is fully cooked and tender, about 25

minutes. While simmering, stir the ingredients every 4-5

minutes to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom

of the pan and burning.

4. Fold in the shrimp and okra. Cover and allow the

shrimp to cook until done. Once done, remove the bay

leaves. Do a taste test; add additional salt and pepper or

cayenne pepper, as needed. Garnish with green onions

and fresh parsley leaves.

5 Wild Facts

About Wild Turkeys

1

2

3

4

Turkey droppings tell a

bird’s sex and age. Male

droppings are j-shaped;

female droppings are

spiral-shaped. The larger the

diameter, the older the bird.

An adult turkey has

5,000-6,000 feathers—count

them!

Enough with gobble,

gobble; turkeys also cluck

and purr.

Young turkeys—called

poults—scarf down insects

like candy. Poults develop

more of a taste for plants

after they’re four weeks old.

5 Move over, American bald

eagle. Ben Franklin called

the wild turkey a “bird of

courage” and thought it

would make a better

national symbol.
