I’ve been bread’s biggest fan for as long as I can remember. In high school, I’d walk to the now-shuttered Hilda’s Bakery in Downtown Auburn (where The Baker and The Cakemaker now resides; see page 44 to read more about them!) for two crispy-crusted, fluffy-centered slabs of Dutch crunch and call it “lunch”; other days, it was Bagel Junction for a round ring of doughy goodness, toasted with schmear; and sometimes I would demolish a baseball bat-sized baguette with creamy dill dressing from La Bou. It’s a good thing I have a fast metabolism, and it’s also a good thing gluten and I get along, because my passion for (well-made) pastries has only grown stronger.
My current culinary weakness is croissants—specifically almond ones—and I recently went on a croissant crawl to find my favorite. After myriad mornings doing “research,” I can proudly proclaim that this month’s cover shot rises above the rest. Do yourself a favor and make the journey to Julian’s Pâtisserie & Café to try it for yourself. Curvaceous, with a golden-brown caramelized crust, toasty almonds, and a showering of powdered sugar, each buttery bite is filled with a criss-cross of flaky folds and is seriously satisfying.
Curious what other local bakeries you knead to know about? Turn to our feature, “Breaking Bread,” on page 43 for 10 of our favorites—both established and emerging—along with their baker’s top tip and tool, one must-order item, and some pretty, and pretty mouthwatering, pictures. If you’re not already craving a transcendent treat, you will be after perusing the pages that follow.
As always, there’s plenty of non-food content, too—many with a focus on conscious consumerism—including 10 thrift shops that give back to our community in big ways (“The 10 Spot” page 20), small-space living essentials that are fashionable and functional (“Less is More” page 62), and 16 eco-friendly finds (“Green Things” page 85).
As we “march” into spring and welcome longer, lighter days, I suggest you sit back, relax, and enjoy this month’s issue—and a baked good—unhurried without any worries. Cheers!

I’ve been bread’s biggest fan

for as long as I can remember.

In high school, I’d walk to

the now-shuttered Hilda’s

Bakery in Downtown Auburn

(where The Baker and The

Cakemaker now resides; see page 44

to read more about them!) for two

crispy-crusted, fluffy-centered slabs

of Dutch crunch and call it “lunch”;

other days, it was Bagel Junction for

a round ring of doughy goodness,

toasted with schmear; and sometimes

I would demolish a baseball bat-sized

baguette with creamy dill dressing

from La Bou. It’s a good thing I have

a fast metabolism, and it’s also a good

thing gluten and I get along, because

my passion for (well-made) pastries has

only grown stronger.

My current culinary weakness

is croissants—specifically almond

ones—and I recently went on a croissant crawl to find my favorite. After myriad mornings

doing “research,” I can proudly proclaim that this month’s cover shot rises above the rest.

Do yourself a favor and make the journey to Julian’s Pâtisserie & Café to try it for yourself.

Curvaceous, with a golden-brown caramelized crust, toasty almonds, and a showering of

powdered sugar, each buttery bite is filled with a criss-cross of flaky folds and is seriously

satisfying.

Curious what other local bakeries you knead to know about? Turn to our feature,

“Breaking Bread,” on page 43 for 10 of our favorites—both established and emerging—

along with their baker’s top tip and tool, one must-order item, and some pretty, and pretty

mouthwatering, pictures. If you’re not already craving a transcendent treat, you will be

after perusing the pages that follow.

For all our savory-toothed readers, we have plenty to

keep you satisfied as well. Turn to Taste on page 100 for

“Avoid those who

don’t like bread

and children.”

—Swiss Proverb

4 perfect (and perfectly simple) potluck recipes that’ll

have guests going back for more and The Hot List on

page 99 for a roundup of the meatiest, sauciest, and most

wonderful wings. In Sip on This (page 107), we share three

locally distilled whiskeys that are best sipped slowly

and alongside good company, and in Dining Out (page

96), Lorn Randall takes us to Roseville’s newest hotspot,

Eureka!, where he writes about a charcuterie-style burger

with goat cheese, fig marmalade, and bacon that calls for

a big appetite…and an even bigger stack of napkins.

As always, there’s plenty of non-food content, too—many with a focus on conscious

consumerism—including 10 thrift shops that give back to our community in big ways (“The

10 Spot” page 20), small-space living essentials that are fashionable and functional (“Less is

More” page 62), and 16 eco-friendly finds (“Green Things” page 85).

As we “march” into spring and welcome longer, lighter days, I suggest you sit back,

relax, and enjoy this month’s issue—and a baked good—unhurried without any worries.

GET TO KNOW

Josh Varozza

Oak Ridge High School graduate Josh

Varozza is a big guy, with a big beard and

personality, and an even bigger heart.

Most of us first noticed the bail bondsman

and El Dorado County native in 2016 when

his series of “dudeoir” photos (taken for

a calendar to help wounded warriors by

his now-wife Tami Bears) went viral. You

remember those, right? Right.

Well, Varozza is about to get a little,

um, bigger—notoriety-wise, anyway: He’s

hosting a new, original TV series called

Beauty Redefined, premiering this spring on

the Discovery Channel and produced by a

company called OnlyGood TV. The “Only

Good” refers to their focus on “uplifting,

inspiring, and heartwarming” programming

around social issues. From the sounds of

it, Varozza’s show fits that description like

a pair of well-worn overalls. “They thought

what we did with ‘dudeoir’ was pretty cool

and really highlighted body positivity and

people doing things differently,” he says.

“I hope people will watch this show, fall

in love with the characters I meet, and

become more inclusive.”

In the series, Josh meets other

uniquely beautiful people and finds out

what makes them tick. Episodes so far

include a film company in New York that

gives “non-neurotypical” young adults

a chance to work in the movie industry;

“Santa Larry,” the first Santa of color to be

hired by the Mall of America; and another

where Varozza gets into the ring with a

lady sumo wrestler (“she abused me,” he

jokingly notes).

Varozza admits it’s hard balancing

his full-time career as a bail bondsman

and this new life as a television show

host. “There are hard days, and

there are really hard days,” he

says. But then, he adds, “There

are really rewarding days. It’s all

about learning

to juggle the

things you

want.”

—Tom Mailey

Q&A

What advice would you give to

your younger self?

Stop trying to be cool. It’s okay to

not always be the coolest person in the room.

What comes to you naturally?

Rapport. I enjoy talking to people and getting to

know their backgrounds. People are fascinating,

and it’s pretty fantastic to meet new people and

see what motivates and rives them. Everyone—

from hobos and entrepreneurs to executives—

has something you can learn from.

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Nail clipping in public.

Are you high or low maintenance?

According to my wife, I constantly need my

feathers stroked, so I suppose I’m moderate to

high maintenance.

was motivated by naysayers. I hope that my

mediocre success can show some wayward

kids that there’s more to life if you want to

live for it.

Favorite humanitarian cause?

I’ve always had a passion for helping veterans

in any capacity.

own it; and don’t eat yellow snow.

Q: WHAT ARE SOME TIPS

FOR PEOPLE JUST LEARNING

HOW TO COOK?

A: Start simple, using flavors

you love and ingredients

you’re familiar with. Also,

use cookbooks and before

starting a recipe, read it twice,

pull out all ingredients, and

measure and slice everything.

After all, cooking is 90%

preparation and 10% execution.

Next, never replace vegetable

oil with olive oil or vice

versa; always purchase fresh,

quality ingredients; don’t use

outdated spices; rest meat after

cooking and slice it against

the grain; and use appropriate

measuring spoons or cups

and verify tablespoons versus

teaspoons, as too much salt

can ruin a dish. Too much

butter, however? Never.

Q: WHAT ARE SOME

EXAMPLES OF FUNCTIONAL

FOODS?

A: One of the most overlooked

and best functional foods

is seaweed or kelp from

the ocean. It’s known as the

medicine of the people in

developing countries, as it’s

high in iodine, minerals, and

fiber. There’s nothing better for

weight loss, metabolism, and

constipation than seaweed and

kelp. You can buy it in bulk as

a powder or in capsules, and a

teaspoon a day does wonders.

FBI Teen

Academy

Shaping Citizens

of Tomorrow

by TARA MENDANHA // photos by DANTE FONTANA

Do you know a teen who’s watched every episode of CSI

(and all its variations), NCIS, or Forensic Files? Are you a

high schooler who’s curious about what it takes to keep

our community and country safe? If you answered “yes” to

either question, read on to find out more about the FBI Teen Academy.

This one-day event on April 3 is part of the FBI’s Community

Outreach Program that supports the Bureau’s mission by working to

address various societal problems including crime, drugs, terrorism, and

violence. The program links community service with law enforcement at

a grassroots level around the country with the aim to build public trust

and confidence in the FBI.

One of the ways they do this is by engaging with young, budding

minds. The FBI Teen Academy “educates and encourages young people

to think critically about their choices and how their actions influence

others and the world around them,” says Public Affairs Specialist for the

FBI Sacramento Field Office, Gina Swankie. They do this by offering high

schoolers a look inside the FBI and have so far seen over 400 graduates

from their Sacramento program. The twice yearly, full-day event caters to

over 40 students per class. Designed for high school juniors, it comes at

a time in a teen’s life when they’re deciding who they are and what they’d

like to do with their life. “We want to provide them with information

24 stylemg.com | MARCH 2020 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


that can help them make wise life choices,

aid reporting of criminal activity to keep their

neighborhoods safer, and mentor their peers,” says

Swankie.

Past classes have included sessions about active

shooter situations, cyber investigations, terrorism,

and FBI’s hiring process. They’ve also had handson

sessions with Special Agent Bomb Techs,

Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), and Evidence

Response Teams. If that wasn’t cool enough,

students also get meet-and-greet opportunities

with their instructors who happen to be FBI personnel ranging from special agents to

intelligence analysts.

Asked about the program’s impact on students and Swankie recalls one graduate who

became aware of some suspicious texts, and, putting into practice what she’d learned at

the program, preserved the communication and contacted the FBI, which resulted in three

people being arrested and convicted for crimes against children. Graduates have pursued

diverse educational programs and professional careers and some have even applied to the

FBI. All students receive a certificate from the special agent in charge of the Sacramento

office and are encouraged to reach out when they have questions or concerns. “Each

student plays a crucial role in the mission of the FBI [and] graduates of the program become

ambassadors for the FBI,” says Swankie.

The Spring 2020 session will be held at the Sacramento Field Office Headquarters

in Roseville. High schoolers in public, private, charter, or home schools can apply. All

application packages must be mailed or dropped off at their headquarters by 4 p.m. on

March 6. The program is free and interested students must download the application

from the FBI Sacramento Field Office’s Community Outreach web page and complete the

forms and an essay. Ideal candidates are those interested in learning about the FBI and

eager to share what they’ve learned with family, friends, and communities. “The teens are

a force multiplier for this organization,” says Swankie, “and we greatly value the role they

play in achieving the FBI’s mission of protecting the American people and upholding the

Constitution of the United States.”

Spotlight on

Sandy Hilton

by HEATHER L. NELSON

| arts & entertainment |

Sandy Hilton’s

passion for pottery

was inspired after

watching a National

Geographic film in grade

school about an artist

making pottery on a

wheel. Today, the clay

artist is vice president

of the Folsom Arts

Association and a member

of the El Dorado Hills

Arts Association, and has

shown her work at the

Gallery at 48 Natoma,

Harris Center’s Bank of

America Gallery, and the

Betsy Lueke Creative

Arts Center in Burbank.

Creating functional,

colorful bowls, mugs, and

other works of art, Hilton

also shares her expertise

by teaching pottery

through the Folsom

Parks and Recreation

Department. “If creating

art makes you happy, stick

with it,” says Hilton. “The

[artistic] process in itself is

healthy, and the end result

is not as important as the

enjoyment of exercising

your creative mind.”

HLN: WHAT ARE

COMMON THEMES

WITH YOUR WORK?

SH: Nature is the primary

influencer of my work,

while animals and

landscape impressions

are the main themes.

My pieces are primarily

functional, and people

who collect my work like

| arts & entertainment |

its practicality and colors that evoke the

natural world.

HLN: ARE THERE CHALLENGES TO

WORKING WITH CLAY?

SH: I’m intrigued with the process of

forming wet clay and then letting heat and

glass perform the final results. There in lay

the challenges—a lot happens inside the kiln

that you can’t control. Every time I open the

kiln, it’s exciting to see if the kiln gods were

favorable to me.

HLN: HOW HAVE YOU EVOLVED AS

AN ARTIST?

SH: I took a ceramics class in high school

and went on to pursue an art degree from

Cal State Northridge, where I honed my

technical skills and grew a deep appreciation

for the arts. In 1978, I began teaching and

have enjoyed sharing the joy of pottery

making with hundreds of students since. I

also had the good fortune to help design and

develop an art center and gallery in Burbank

and eventually brought those skills to

Folsom, helping to cultivate their art center

and the Gallery at 48 Natoma. After working

for Burbank, Glendale, and Folsom Parks and

Recreation for a combined 34 years, I retired

in 2013 and [finally] have time to make

pottery and teach.

HLN: WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST

ABOUT TEACHING?

SH: Sharing my love for pottery with

students is equal to my love for creating

art. I’m thrilled when they’re successful

and take joy in their delight. Students

are curious about techniques that aren’t

necessarily in my wheelhouse, so I’m

always challenged to expand my skills and

creative outlook.

HLN: IS THERE ANYTHING YOU

WOULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY

IN YOUR CAREER?

SN: Life evolves and doesn’t always move

in accordance with your plans. I would

have loved to spend more time creating my

own artwork instead of working full-time.

However, the work led me in directions I

never would have dreamed of, so overall

can’t imagine changing anything. I now have

the good fortune to concentrate on my art

like I always dreamed of.

The Baker and

The Cakemaker

The Baker and The Cakemaker—aka, the

husband-and-wife team of Nathan, “The Baker,”

and Alice Shreve, “The Cakemaker”— trained

at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America

and brought their skills to the Sierra foothills

to share with the residents of Auburn and its

surrounding communities. Along with fresh

pastries, croissants, scones, muffins, and so much

more, they produce “handcrafted artisan breads

using organic flours and top-quality seeds, grains,

and nuts.”

TOP BAKING TIP: Don’t skimp on quality butter.

MUST-ORDER ITEM: Sunrise Sandi (toasted

house-made bread, warm bacon, frittata egg,

caramelized onions, melted cheddar, avocado,

and fresh greens)

FUN FACT: We were a wholesale bakery for

the last 10 years and recently opened a retail

storefront bakery/café.

Northstar

Home Baking

Maybe the happiest person in any job,

anywhere, is Metin Emek of Northstar Home

Baking. The fact that his happiness is on full

display through his cakes and pastries will

make you very happy also. Emek quit his job

as a software engineer (he was happy there,

too) and started baking full-time several years

ago after friends and family told him, “You

should do this for a living; you’re very good at

it!” According to Emek, “I like to make people

smile...when they eat what I bake, they smile!”

TOP BAKING TIP: Take your time and never

take shortcuts; baking is best with patience.

MUST-ORDER ITEM: Belgian Chocolate

Cake

FUN FACT: It’s a hole-in-the-wall with

surprisingly amazing creations that will keep

you coming back to see what’s next.

Julian's

Pâtisserie

and Café

It’s always a great story when

a hometown son or daughter

leaves to learn and excel at

their chosen profession and

then returns home to start

a business. Such is the case

for Julian Perrigo-Jimenez

of Julian’s Pâtisserie and

Café. After perfecting his

skills abroad and in the glitz

and glamour of Las Vegas,

Jimenez moved his family

back home to Folsom to open

their pâtisserie. Featuring

sweet and savory crepes,

breakfast pastries, custom

cakes, croissants, housemade

chocolates, and more,

the Folsom community have

occasion to celebrate in the

return of a prodigal son.

TOP BAKING TIP: Don’t be

afraid to bake things to a

dark golden brown. It’s that

caramelization in the baking

process that gives things

their flavor. When baked

goods are too pale, they lack

in flavor.

MUST-ORDER ITEM:

Almond Croissant

Wise Villa Winery photo by Taylor Gillespie, @food.in.focus.

FUN FACT: Opening the

bakery has been a longtime

dream of mine, so now I get

to create my favorite things

all day and share them with

others to enjoy as well.

Frank Vilt's Cakes

In a not-so-unfamiliar story, Frank Vilt’s Cakes started

with Vilt baking out of his home while working at

Raley’s full-time. “I worked seven days a week and

upwards around 80 [hours] for almost five years,” says

Vilt. “I used to meet my customers at coffee shops and

gas stations to deliver their orders. I hit my 20-year

mark with Raley’s and decided to retire and open up

my bakery full-time. [This year marks four years] at my

current location, and I look forward to expanding my

business in the next couple of years.”

TOP BAKING TIP: Prepare everything for your recipe

the day before or sometimes up to a week before;

it’ll help save time and ensure you have everything

needed for the recipe. Also, measure out your dry

ingredients and wet ingredients the day before

baking.

MUST-ORDER ITEM: Napoleon

FUN FACT: We spend more on butter every month

than we do on rent, sugar, and flour—combined!

Cakesmith

Cakesmith owner Heather Clennell proves success

doesn’t necessarily start in a classroom, but more from

hard work. Juggling her passion for the sweet science of

cake making with her corporate banking job convinced

her that she could do more than make ends meet as

an entrepreneur: She could thrive. And thrive she has,

landing guest appearances on Good Day Sacramento

and Duff Goldman’s show Duff Takes the Cake. Her

custom cakes, cupcakes, and cookies bring smiles to her

customers, and a penchant for philanthropy has brought

heartfelt thanks from individuals and communities

suffering from a crisis.

TOP BAKING TIP: Experiment but stay true to the

science of baking.

MUST-ORDER ITEM: NY Cheesecake

FUN FACT: I’m 100% self-taught and every month

donate a custom cake to a single parent who has a

child with a birthday, and can't afford one.

BAD Bakers

BAD Bakers (the ultimate misnomer) owners

Katelyn and Vincent Tiuseco burst onto the

scene in 2014 with their first brick and mortar

in Natomas, followed by a Roseville locale in

2017. Known for “injecting” life (and a few

other ingredients) into their donuts, breads,

and savory baked goods, they’ve won legions of

faithful fans along the way. According to their

website, “It’s always fun to be a little BAD, but

you always have to spread the love too.”

TOP BAKING TIP: If it looks good, it tastes

good! Presentation is always key.

MUST-ORDER ITEM: Hot Spanish Rolls

(Staxx)

FUN FACT: We’re husband-and-wife owners

who both came from a medical background

but found our creativity and passion through

baking and sharing it with our family and

community.

FAVORITE BAKING TOOL: Our taste buds, or

our daughters’ taste buds. They’ll always let

us know if something is good enough to keep

producing!

Sierra Rizing

Trained as a pastry chef for the restaurants of luminary

San Francisco chefs Wolfgang Puck, Joyce Goldstein,

and Jeremiah Tower, Sierra Rizing owner Teal Triolo

decided to take her resume to the beauty and serenity

of the Sierra foothills, specifically the Coloma-Lotus

Valley. Since launching in 2002, Triolo has cultivated

her business from a simple small-town bakery into a

catering and specialty coffee purveyor serving breakfast

and lunch that would be the envy of many of her former

SF colleagues. "I was one of the lucky few kids who knew

what I wanted to do to when I grew up and made it

happen. I enjoy coming to work every day, and the days I

don't are few and far between."

TOP BAKING TIP: Read a recipe thoroughly before

starting, and make sure you have all your ingredients!

MUST-ORDER ITEM: Flourless Chocolate Torte

FUN FACT: Sierra Rizing opened 18 years ago in 2002,

because of dog biscuits being made out of my house.

Lovebirds Coffee & Tea Co. of Placerville are embracing their

upcoming expansion and relocation. Their new digs are slated

to open this spring in Diamond Springs (4181 State Highway

49, Suite 100) and include an additional 1,500 square feet,

a drive-through, and a courtyard. Starting in 2015 as “a full

Italian café,” Lovebirds retooled and became a coffee and tea

house with fresh-baked pastries. Featuring one-of-a-kind,

locally roasted coffees, they also serve over 40 loose leaf teas.

The results speak for themselves. “We have far outgrown

our Broadway location and look forward to many more years

philosophy on the subject with us. “Develop

something that will be your go-to specialty,

a delicate part of our humanity. The world

needs more of that.”

8 Questions

About Couples

Counseling

by KOURTNEY JASON

Every couple can benefit from

therapy. Nancy Ryan, MA,

LMFT, founder and director

of Relationship Therapy

Center, says there’s a few

stages throughout the course

of a relationship when seeing a therapist

will help strengthen your foundation.

“Before a couple moves in together or gets

married, it can be really helpful to meet

with a therapist for a few sessions to discuss

your relationship—including unspoken

expectations, goals, and values—and

learn good communication and conflict

resolution,” she says. Other pivotal times

when couples might benefit from therapy?

“When a baby comes, when there are new

blended families, or when a couple goes

through empty nesting.”

Talal H. Alsaleem, PsyD, LMFT, at Happily

Ever After Counseling & Coaching, says

“couples shouldn’t only seek counseling

when they’re experiencing relationship

dissatisfaction, but also before they

escalate the level of commitment in the

relationship,” he says. “This is why premarital

counseling tends to increase

the potential for having a successful

relationship.”

Have you thought about talking to your

partner about counseling, but weren’t sure

how to start the conversation? We turned

to local marriage and family therapists who

shared the answers to questions about

counseling you might be too afraid to ask.

How do I pick the right professional to help

1 with our counseling needs?

Dr. Alsaleem breaks this down into two

steps. First, identify the type of counseling

services that are best suited for your needs,

such as individual counseling, marriage

counseling, or family counseling. “Then,

before you book your first session, have a

consultation with the counselor you plan to

work with. The consultation is usually free

and designed to help you and the counselor

determine whether or not you’re a good

fit for each other. For example, do they

have the experience, training, and license

necessary to provide you with the services

you need? Is their counseling style and

personality compatible with yours?”

How long will we have to be in therapy?

2

It varies, according to Joe Borders,

MFT. “Most commonly, couples therapy is

done on a weekly basis and continues until

the couple decides to stop for one reason

or another,” he says. “Depending on the

situations that bring you to therapy, it can

be a month, a year, or more. If therapy goes

well, however, it often becomes something

people choose to continue even after their

original presenting problems get better.”

Will the therapist take sides?

3

“Therapists are trained professionals

and are required to maintain therapeutic

neutrality,” Dr. Alsaleem says. “This stance

requires objectivity, which allows the

therapists to see both sides of the issue.

Top photo (c) Ines Bazdar. Bottom photo (c)Wayhome Studio - stock.

adobe.com.

52 stylemg.com | MARCH 2020 | /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


Keep in mind that neutrality doesn’t mean everyone is right. Because, at

the end of the day, the therapist’s job is to identify the breakdown in the

relationship and the factors that have contributed to it.”

Can I go alone?

4

Dr. Alsaleem always recommends couples start the therapy

process together rather than alone. “This will set the stage for working

on the issues as partners rather than adversaries and will also avoid

misperception about having the therapist align with the partner who

started the sessions individually. Attempting to fix relationship issues

solo has limited therapeutic benefits, because the therapist needs to

hear both partners’ sides of the issue,” he says.

Can we recover from infidelity?

5

Yes, it is possible. “People often get caught up in the idea that

infidelity means the end of a relationship. That is not always true,”

Borders says. “We have a cultural assumption that this is the ultimate

deal-breaker nobody should tolerate. Affairs happen for many different

reasons and can mean many different things to different people. Only

you, as an individual and as a couple, can decide if you can heal the

relationship after an affair, but it doesn’t have to mean the end. Not all

affairs are pre-contemplated or the result of malice, and I have seen a

good number of couples recover from them.”

Can therapy help if we’re unsure about staying together?

6

Borders says yes. “The goal of therapy is not always to help

a couple stay together. Sometimes it’s to end a relationship in an

amicable way and sometimes people come in without solid goals

and just want to get un-stuck. If you’re unsure about staying together,

therapy can help you talk about all of the issues contributing to this

indecision and come to a conclusion together,” he says.

How do I suggest therapy to my partner?

7

Ryan likes to give a sports metaphor to remind couples about

the benefits of therapy. “Even athletes at the top of their games have

coaches, because we can’t always see objectively what is going on,” she

says. “We need other people to do that for us. Even therapists need

therapists! We don’t get relationship playbooks. Say to your partner

something like, ‘I want us to always feel connected, close, and loving

and learn new tools to handle any conflicts. I want us to keep growing

and learn ways for us to be the best partners we can be. Would you

consider attending a few sessions of therapy so we can stay on track?’

Or if it’s a tougher situation, ‘I really want us to get better at being

partners and I am afraid if we don’t get help, we will keep hurting each

other. Let’s please go to counseling and learn better ways.’”

As partners, what should we both know before starting therapy?

8

“Negative ways of thinking and behaviors take years to develop

and will not disappear overnight,” Dr. Alsaleem says. “The flip side of

this is that counseling shouldn’t be forever. It’s a process that should

have a beginning, middle, and end. Once you achieve your goals and

life is back in balance, stay on top of your mental well-being. It’s kind of

like seeing the dentist—you shouldn’t just do it when you have a cavity

or need a root canal. Prevention is the best cure.”

Less is More

5 Small-Space Essentials

by KERRIE L. KELLY

Think your space isn’t big enough

to add delightfully designed

furnishings and accessories? Think

again! With the growing popularity

of the “less is more” concept, and small-space

living in urban areas, less square footage is the

new norm. Although your space may be petite,

the style doesn’t have to be. Below are a few of

our favorite ways to hack a small space, from

two-in-one furnishings to décor that visually

expands any space.

Sana Brass Mirror, $169.99

at Cost Plus World Market,

worldmarket.com

GET THE LOOK

1

MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL

If your home or apartment offers less square

footage than you’d like, there’s an easy shortcut

you can take without knocking down any walls.

Mirrors, like artwork, are visually interesting

and add instant appeal to any room. But did you

know they also make spaces feel more expansive?

By placing a large framed mirror on a wall directly

across from a big window or bright white wall,

you can open up your space without making any

physical changes to the structure.

2

IT TAKES TWO

Small living rooms, bedrooms,

and entryways rarely offer the balance

homeowners want in a compact space.

To help create a sense of symmetry, add

pairs—two side tables on the side of a

small sofa, two lamps on an entryway

console, two nightstands on the side

of a bed. Pro tip: Add tall lamps to create

height and slim nightstands that double

as bookshelves to make more use of the

space you have; and then complement the

pretty pairs of product with clean lines

and neutral colors to make a subtle yet

stylish statement.

3

GHOST STRATEGY

Not only is acrylic and Lucite décor

glamorous but it doubles as a secret weapon

to combat cramped spaces, too. Perfect for

a small office nook or a dining room scene,

acrylic chairs match any type of décor,

from tailored and traditional to modern

and upscale. Tuck them into a corner in

the living room atop a hide rug or next to

your entryway as a drop zone for purses,

coats, and keys. Other popular and stylish

see-through furnishings include coffee

tables that seemingly float in the middle of

the living room; trays to hold your favorite

trinkets in the entryway or bathroom; and

lamps, frames, and décor that add glitz and

glam without taking up valuable real estate.

4

HELLO, HEIGHT

One of the chief concerns from

homeowners living in small spaces is a

total lack of storage. While editing is A-OK,

some things you just can’t throw away, like

family heirlooms and old books. The perfect

solution? Tall bookshelves. Not only does

stacked shelving add storage, but it also adds

| /stylemg /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags


height. Cubbies, built-ins, or

floating shelves all add styled

stowing options while drawing the eye upward

and away from your lack of square footage.

5

CONVERTIBLE COOL

Apartment dwellers and small space

inhabitants, rejoice! As design continues to align

with new technology and innovative product

design, so, too, can your compact corridors.

Need extra seating but also a place to set your

drink down for a cocktail party? Consider poufs

or movable benches that double as tabletops.

Love throwing dinner parties but don’t have

the dining space to do so? Consider adding a

table that extends and resizes to fit a party of

five or a party of one. Two-in-one coffee tables

and nesting tables are also great hacks for small

spaces; push them inside of each other for more

floor space when entertaining or add function

by pulling them apart for family game night.

Photos courtesy Kerrie Kelly Design Lab.

While all of these furnishing and décor ideas

are sneaky ways to add more livability to

your smaller space, nothing beats editing

and minimizing clutter. To instantly make

your home feel less crowded, go through

bookshelves, tabletops, drawers, and nightstands

and discard garbage or broken items while

rearranging décor to show off your newly

cleaned spaces.

SPECIAL AD SECTION

Spot a Stroke

and Act FAST

Knowing the signs and symptoms of a

stroke is the difference between life,

death and disability. For Americans,

strokes are not only the leading cause

of disability but are also one of the top

causes of death.

Strokes can be caused by a blocked artery, impairing

blood flow to the brain. They can also be caused

by a rupture of a blood vessel, preventing oxygen

and nutrients from getting to the brain. “Lack of

blood circulation in the brain can lead to paralysis,

vision or language problems, behavioral changes

or memory loss,” says Scott Vasconcellos, MD of

Marshall Cardiology.

Strokes can come without warning. It’s important to

know the symptoms for yourself and for others. Call

911 immediately you recognize the following:

• Dizziness or problems with balance

• Numbness in the arms, legs or face

• Confusion or difficulty speaking

• Loss of vision or double vision

• Severe headache

Seconds matter when it comes to stroke treatment.

Depending on the type of stroke, healthcare

professionals may administer clot-busting or

hemorrhaging-reduction medication to reverse the

stroke. Emergency surgery may also be necessary to

stop bleeding into the brain. “Every minute counts,”

explains Dr. Vasconcellos. “There is a short window

of three hours from the first symptoms to combat

permanent effects.”

Anyone can have a stroke; you may not know you’re

at risk until you experience symptoms. “There are

risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure,

smoking, high cholesterol, irregular heartbeat,

family history and a narrowing of the arteries,” says

Dr. Vasconcellos. “If you have one or more of these

conditions, speak to your doctor about a stroke

screening test.”

Strokes can be prevented through lifestyle choices:

exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy diet,

managing your weight and not smoking. Control

chronic conditions with medication and by seeing

your doctor regularly.

Marshall Medical Center is a Stroke Center, certified

by The Joint Commission. A dedicated stroke team,

including a physician, registered nurse, phlebotomist,

pharmacist and CT technician stands at the ready

to respond to all potential stroke patients. Following

protocols and national standards, Marshall’s Stroke

Team upholds a high standard of care.

Is this normal?

Strange and Unsual Symtoms

Your body speaks to you through signs

and feelings, giving you warnings that

something may not be right. If you’re

experiencing unusual symptoms, visit

your doctor to identify the underlying

cause and determine a plan for treatment.

Abdominal pain, bloating or nausea

after eating greasy food – let your

doctor know if you experience belly

pain when you eat fatty foods as you

may have a gallbladder condition.

“Your gallbladder aids in the digestion

of fats,” says Marshall General Surgeon

Ryan Lussenden, MD. “Pain may

be caused by an inflammation or by

gallstones.” Removal of the gallbladder

can be done with outpatient surgery

laparoscopically. Recovery time is

minimal and patients can resume

normal activities in a few days.

Recurring heartburn – Burning pain in your chest after eating, one that isn’t easily treatable

by over-the-counter medications, may be caused by diet, meal size and frequency of eating.

Heartburn can be more than your stomach rebelling; it may require a CT scan or upper

endoscopy to get to the root of the problem.

Lumps on your abdomen or groin area – This could indicate a hernia, when an organ pushes

through a weak opening in muscle or tissue. Hernias can cause complications, may grow larger and

won’t go away without medical intervention. Your doctor can detect a hernia with a manual exam.

Surgery is the only way to treat a hernia.

Pain or burning during urination for men - Painful, frequent or dribbling urine may be a sign of

prostate problems. To diagnose, your doctor will do a rectal exam and take cultures. An ultrasound

may also be used to determine the severity, including the possibility of prostate cancer.

Heavy menstrual bleeding – Prolonged or heavy periods that hamper usual activities may be

caused by a number of conditions including hormone imbalance, dysfunction of the ovaries,

uterine fibroids, polyps, cancer or other medical conditions. “Heavy periods can be an

indication of a number of problems,” says Kate Sullivan, FNP, of Marshall OB/BYN. “There are

various treatment options your gynecologist can recommend. Abnormally heavy bleeding is not

only inconvenient and embarrassing. It can also be painful and a symptom of something more

serious. Don’t delay in seeing your doctor.”

You don’t have to live with these symptoms, talk to your doctor about treatment options.

Some may be easily managed with medication, but some may require surgery. Marshall

Medical Center uses a state-of-the-art da Vinci robot for minimally invasive surgeries, so you’ll

experience less pain and recover faster.

Small changes

in your routine

can add up to big

ZZZs

Sleep. We all want more of

it. Some need help getting

it. Trying to cram as much

as possible into a busy

schedule sometimes requires

sacrificing sleep. “We all

know how it feels to run

on too little sleep. By not making it a priority, you

can make yourself more susceptible to problems

such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart

attack, heart failure and stroke,” says Anuradha

Shanmugham, MD, MPH, of Marshall Family

Medicine. “Not to mention, there are impacts

to your appearance, lack of alertness, impaired

memory, relationship stress and a greater

likelihood of car accidents.”

Want more sleep? Here are some tips on getting increased

quantity and quality of sleep.

1. Set a bedtime and keep it.

Instead of waiting until your to do list is done (because it

never really is anyway) or until you feel too sleepy to keep

your eyes open, set a reasonable time to hit the sheets. Most

adults need between seven and nine hours each night so

make sure your bedtime allows for at least that before your

morning routine begins. Don’t forget that we rarely sleep

through the night without waking up momentarily several

times, so build in a little extra time to account for that.

2. Turn off your devices.

It seems everything has a back lit screen these days, even

our watches. These electronic devices emit a special kind

of blue light that drastically affects our quality of sleep.

Blue light exposure in the evening tricks your body

into thinking its daytime and inhibits the production of

melatonin, which tells your body it’s tired and needs to go

to sleep. Turn off your devices, including the television,

about an hour before bed, if not longer. Use an alarm clock

with red numbers on your nightstand instead of your

phone to wake you in the morning and to check the time

during the night if you wake up.

3. Create a pre-bed routine.

Sleep hygiene is the practice of creating a few habits before

bed that over time trigger your brain to know that it’s time

to starting shutting down. Read a chapter of a good book,

enjoy a bubble bath or hot shower, take your dog for a short

walk. Whatever your routine may be, do the same thing

each night before you go to bed.

4. Avoid alcohol. And naps.

Savoring a glass of wine or two at the end of a long

day may seem to help you relax and get to sleep faster.

However, studies show that alcohol actually disrupts the

phases of sleep, making it less restful than you’d expect.

Similarly, taking an afternoon nap will trick your body

into thinking it’s gotten the right kind of sleep when, in

fact, daytime sleep doesn’t allow for the deep or REM sleep

we need so badly. Naps also decrease the “sleep debt” that

is necessary for us to fall asleep more easily at night.

5. Get out of bed.

If you’ve turned off the lights and sunk into your comfy

bed, but sleep doesn’t come within ten minutes, get up and

do something else, even if it’s just sitting in a chair with

your thoughts. Lying in bed awake for long periods of time

will train your brain that bed is a place to be awake, which

is the opposite of your intended goal.

6. Have a snack.

Instead of reaching for that pint of ice cream in the back of

the freezer, there are some snacks you can have that will

actually help your quality of sleep.

• Complex carbs such as popcorn, oatmeal, or whole

wheat crackers with nut butter increase serotonin

levels that aid sleep.

• A handful of nuts contain melatonin to regulate your

sleep cycle.

• Cottage cheese with raspberries will boost serotonin.

• Caffeine-free tea containing calming ingredients like

chamomile, ginger or peppermint can add to your

relaxing bedtime ritual.

• Warm milk is a cliché for a reason.

• Tart fruit like whole tart cherries, pineapple and

oranges contain a lot of melatonin. And one study

shows that eating two kiwis before bed can lead to an

hour of extra sleep over the course of a month.

7. Exercise.

In addition to helping out your cardiovascular health,

getting regular exercise increases endorphins in your

body, leading to better sleep. “Try squeezing short bouts of

activity into your day if you don’t feel you have time to hit

the gym. Just five or ten minutes here and there can really

add up,” says Stanley Henjum, MD, of Marshall Cardiology.

Get creative about your bedtime routine; take or leave

any of the above suggestions. Just make sure that you’re

sticking to a consistent routine with consistent timing.

Your body and your mind will thank you for it.

The Power

of Generosity

Wildfires. Power outages. A

tragedy that takes a life.

When a personal or

widespread disaster hits the

media, many people are

drawn to give. Either through

volunteering or donating

supplies or money, people are

moved to express their altruistic desire to help in some form.

The generosity tends to be great in the beginning but then

slowly dwindles. This is expected. “Donors can reevaluate

how they choose to respond,” says Jamie Johnson,

Executive Director of the Marshall Foundation for Community

Health. “Give when you feel the urge, but also consider

repeating your gift six months, a year or years after the

disaster,” he said. With true disasters, the effects and need

for help will last for a long while.

Give yourself time to identify the best nonprofit organizations

to support. “Giving is so personal,” says Jamie, “Consider

whether you want to give to an established entity such as

the Red Cross, or to locally based nonprofits with good

reputations. Some may even want to give directly to those

affected via a Go Fund Me page.”

Some tips for giving:

1. Consider donating money rather than

items. Relief organizations can make best

use of funds rather than supplies that

need to be sorted, stored or may expire.

2. Give to reputable aid groups and nonprofits

with ties to the local community.

3. Think of immediate and long-term needs;

you may want to give some now and

more later.

Aside from episodic giving, there are also

ways to plan your gifts. Some examples

include:

Donor Advised Fund – Start a fund for a

cause near and dear to your heart. You can

start the fund and contribute annually, or invite

others to add to it.

Estate Plan Gifts – a provision in your will or

living trust naming an entity as a beneficiary or

a portion of your assets.

Life Income Gifts – allows you to give assets

to an entity who will manage the investment

and pays you (or others) a dividend for a

certain term. There are several types of life

income gifts you can consider.

Giving requires knowledge and heart. Generosity empowers

others to act on your behalf.

The Marshall Foundation for Community health was

established in 1974 to support Marshall Hospital and health

initiatives in El Dorado County. A board of 23 trustees

oversees assets of $4.5 million. The foundation provided

health care grants of $73,000 last year to efforts including

battling opioid addiction, drug abuse prevention education

in schools, dementia and Alzheimer’s education, and support

for the homeless and disabled. For more information about

FEATURE

of Safe Sleep

It can be difficult for parents—new

parents especially—to navigate the

advice from friends, “Dr. Google” and

gut instinct when it comes to what’s

best for your child’s health and safety.

Here are some easy-to-remember

tips for making sure your baby sleeps

safely through the night from Marshall

Medical Center’s newest pediatrician,

Suzanne Stewart, MD.

ALONE

BACK

CRIB

Your baby should sleep alone

for every sleep (night time and

naps). While studies show

that sharing a room with your

baby can decrease the risks of

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

(SIDS) by half,

sharing a bed

can increase

those risks.

For the past 27 years, the

American Academy of

Pediatrics has recommended

babies sleep on their backs

instead of on their stomachs or

sides. This has been

shown to reduce the

risk of sleep-related

deaths including

SIDS.

Babies should sleep in their

own crib or bassinet. The crib

should have a firm mattress

with a fitted sheet to prevent

suffocation and there should

be nothing else in the crib

with your baby. This includes

blankets, toys and pillows.

If the temperature is too cool

for your baby,

swaddling them

during sleep is

safer than having

loose blankets in

the crib.

a Marshall pediatrician,

marshallmedical.org/pediatrics

Sleep training

your baby

Sleep training is a hotly debated topic in the

parenting world. It’s the process of teaching your

baby how to sleep independently, ideally between

four and six months of age. Sleep training is all

about creating positive sleep associations for your

baby. “It’s very difficult for new parents if their baby

doesn’t sleep. I recommend sleep training for your

own peace of mind and for your baby’s healthy sleep

patterns,” says Suzanne Stewart, MD, of Marshall Pediatrics.

But with so many different methods, how do you know which is right for

your family? Only you can make that decision, but here are a few different

approaches you can try.

Let’s start with the most controversial method – Cry-It-Out (CIO), also known as...

Extinction

This involves letting your baby cry at bedtime or the middle of the night so they

learn to soothe themselves back to sleep. Supporters of CIO say it’s a practical

way for infants to figure out how to fall asleep without the assistance of their

parents and doesn’t take too many nights for parents to see results. Critics, on

the other hand, say that letting your baby cry can cause psychological damage

and negatively affect the baby’s sense of security during sleep.

Chair Method

For this technique, sit in a chair near the crib until your baby falls asleep. This

reassures the baby that you are nearby, while not helping them fall asleep or

calm down. Gradually move the chair farther and farther away until you’re

outside of the room.

Ferber Method

This is often mistaken for the cry-it-out method, but has some differences, as

explained by its creator, Richard Ferber, MD. It involves putting your drowsy,

but awake, baby in the crib. If the baby cries, wait a few minutes before

attending to them. First wait three minutes, then five, then ten and so on. This

continues over the course of a week, with longer intervals each day.

Walk-and-Sleep Technique

Try feeding and swaddling your baby, turning on white noise, and rocking

your baby to sleep. Slide them into the crib and wake them gently. Since they

are drowsy, they’ll fall back to sleep quickly, learning to put themselves back to

sleep on their own.

As Dr. Stewart says any of these methods will help your child learn to self-soothe

and sleep soundly, allowing you to do the same.

Want to Train

for a 5K?

With the weather starting to warm up, it’s easier for us to get

active outside. A great way to stay active is to train for a 5K

run; it’s just a little more than three miles. However, the less active

you’ve been lately, the more likely it is you’ll get injured if you try to

do too much too soon. Here are some tips to get started:

• When you start, don’t worry about how fast you are running.

Instead, focus on how long you run.

• Purchase a good pair of running shoes. Go to a specialty running

store and they can help you choose a pair designed for your arch

and stride. While you’re there, pick up some seam-free socks that

manage moisture to avoid blisters.

• Get into a pre-run routine. We’ve all heard that it’s important

to stretch before a run, but how? Physical therapist Allison

Orofino, Director of Rehabilitation Services at Marshall

recommends dynamic stretching to get the blood flowing.

These include walking lunges, butt kicks and high knees. Be

sure to walk briskly for about five minutes before you speed

up to a comfortable jog or run pace.

• Your first runs should be about 20 to 30 minutes, three times

a week. Download a training app such as Couch to 5K, which

will help you build up to running longer with smaller stretches of

walking in between.

• It is important to complete these first runs at a comfortable pace.

Don’t push yourself too hard in the beginning, but focus on

longevity.

• Don’t be afraid to walk. Listen to your body and if you need to

take a break, slow down to a brisk walk. Be honest with yourself

though. Do you need a break or are you just bored with the

monotony we sometimes feel with a longer stretch of running?

• Cool down. When you’ve completed your running goal for the

day, don’t stop all at once. Much like you did when you warmed

up, walk for another five minutes to cool down gradually.

• Stretch again. Now is the time for static stretching on the floor. Be

sure to stretch each muscle group in your legs to avoid injury or

tight muscles the following day.

Page 1

SPECIAL AD SECTION

• On rest days, work your core. We tend to think that running or

walking just works our leg muscles, but it’s actually a much more

full body experience. On days you don’t train, do some simple

core strengthening exercises like crunches or planks to help

those stabilizing muscles keep up with the rest of your body.

CONTROL

Exploring Holland and

Germany Aboard the

Crystal Bach

By T. Carroll

It seems like every

time you talk to someone

about vacations, river cruising

comes up. Over the past decade,

there’s been a surge in passengers

as well as the number of companies

operating river cruise lines—not just in Europe

but around the world.

Photo by Terry Carroll.

Why has this style of “vacation” captured the imagination of

so many? We were eager to find out and experience the world of

luxury river cruising.

MARCH 2020 | stylemg.com 77


Left to right: Terry & Wendy in Cochem,

Germany; new friends Joan & Dave;

Butler Igor; Crystal Bach; pastries in

the Bach Bistro.

Our nonstop flight to

Amsterdam went

without a hitch, and we

arrived a bit tired but

eager to see the city and

get ready for our departure the following

day. This was our first time in Amsterdam,

and we made the most of it as we always

do on short stays in new places: using the

double-decker tour bus! I’ve heard people

gripe about them, but when time is short,

I find there’s nothing like it; it’s kind of the

Cliff Notes of city exploration. Never been

to Amsterdam? Put it on the list now! The

city felt young and vibrant and was loaded

with things to see and do, top-notch food,

and warm, friendly people—most of whom

travel on bikes.

The following day we stepped on board

the Crystal Bach, considered one of

Crystal’s flagship river boats. We have

river cruised before, but this was our first

time aboard Crystal, so we were eager to

experience this highly awarded cruise line.

The accommodations themselves were

extremely noteworthy, for their size, luxury

appointments, and design. Crystal offers

larger suites and therefore 40% fewer

suites and passengers. What a difference

this makes when it comes to comfort.

From the moment we boarded, we knew

this was going to be different. We arrived

a bit early and were offered champagne

and directed to the Palm Court as our

cabin was being readied. Immediately, a

very nice crewmember asked us what we

would like to drink. We

simply asked for water—

sparkling for my wife, and

still for me—and were

never asked again. From

that point forward, the

crew knew. Of course, they

would ask before pouring,

but it was, “sparkling,

ma’am?” then “still for you,

sir?” The entire crew was

exemplary. And take note that the crew to

passenger ratio is 1 to 1.6, providing a level

of service that sets them apart.

What else does Crystal do that makes

them stand out? Firstly, their cruises are

all inclusive—from cocktails to excursions

and tips for the crew—there isn’t another

charge involved, period. Talk about a

wonderful way to travel. Also impressive

was the exquisite selection of wine and

top-shelf spirits, which once again, was

all-inclusive.

When the time came to see our

accommodations, we were shown the

way and met by our “butler,” Igor, who

would be with us for the next 10 days.

Igor was delightful and ever helpful.

Whatever we needed, he was there. He

was also there to surprise us with a late

afternoon snack a couple of times while

we were getting our clothes pressed for

dinner, and so much more.

Being 6’ 7”, having enough room to move

around is of paramount importance; not

only to me, but for my wife too, who has

to deal with me if I’m feeling like I am in

a shoebox. This particular suite boasted

a comfortable, king-sized bed; walk-in

closet; bathroom with two sinks; and a

shower that I couldn’t only walk in but

stand straight up in, too! It was a room that

rivaled the finest hotels.

After the cruise officially began, we chose

our daily excursions (all but just a couple

are included in your fare, and the choices

can be difficult!) and began our journey

that took us mostly on the Mosel and

Rhine Rivers. If you’ve never traveled this

region, you’ll soon find it’s one of the most

beautiful places to see—and is also known

for its excellent wines.

Day 1: Amsterdam

Since we spent the previous day doing our own

tour of the city, visiting the exquisite museum area,

walking the canals, and dodging bikes (be careful:

in Amsterdam, everyone is on

a bike and they don’t stop for

pedestrians!), we decided to

take the Amsterdam Jewish

Heritage Tour.

Day 2: Cologne City Walk

Watching the boat cruise into a larger city is always interesting.

Cologne has it all: bridges, industry, homes, buildings, churches,

etc., but the cathedral—which took over 600 years to build and is

one of the most remarkable gothic structures in the world—was of

particular interest. With over 20,000 visitors each day, it’s a mustsee

when visiting Cologne.

Day 3: Koblenz City Walk

Koblenz is a beautiful city that’s situated where the Moselle and Rhine Rivers meet.

Known for its wine and spring water, it’s one of those smaller cities where you just want

to walk all day, enjoying the shops, cafés, and beauty.

The River

Cruise Guru

Traveling is about many

things, not the least of which

is making friends and simply

meeting interesting people. One

that we met on this cruise was

Ralph Grizzle, the owner/editor of

two renowned websites that offer

tremendous insight to all types

of cruising around the globe.

We had the great pleasure of

spending quite a bit of time with

Ralph and found him to be one of

the most well-respected experts

Ralph Grizzle

Day 4: Bernkastel Walk and Wine Tour

A quintessential medieval town on the Moselle, this may be one of the most charming

towns in Germany. You’ll find yourself surrounded by hillside vineyards and stunning

castles with a wonderful marketplace. The tour was fun and informative, but the people

watching from the cafés was particularly fun.

His website rivercruiseadvisor.

com is filled with information and

photos about almost every river

cruise line and cruise you may be

interested in.

Day 5: Trier

From the Porta Nigra Gate,

you’ll see the Roman bath

ruins, an amphitheater,

and a stone bridge. The

Archaeological Museum

is a must-see, and there

are numerous Catholic

Churches to view, too

(the Trier Cathedral was a

standout). We walked the

marketplace, enjoyed a

traditional German lunch

in the square, and windowshopped

to our heart’s

content.

However, his experience and

knowledge doesn’t stop there.

fascinating world of expedition

cruising.

Whatever kind of cruise you

are considering, you will find

Ralph and his websites to be an

invaluable resource.

Day 6: Luxembourg

We docked in Trier overnight and decided that on

our second day there we would do the day trip

to Luxembourg City. Our first stop on our short

trip, via Crystal Luxury Bus, was the American

Military Cemetery. When we arrived we instantly

recognized that we were on hallowed ground.

Seeing the rows and rows of white crosses, where

our men are buried, most from the Battle of the

Bulge, brought up so many emotions and an

overall sense of pride. However, we couldn’t help

but see that one grave was set apart, although we

could not see the name as the ground was too

wet to walk upon. We asked the tour guide and I

was taken aback when told it was General George

S. Patton. We were then off to Luxembourg City

where we toured and enjoyed lunch on the

square. The old battlements were a sight to see

and the views from the city to the valleys around

it were spectacular.

Day 7: Cochem

This was our second time

in Cochem, and it had

to be one of the most

picturesque places on

the Rhine. We toured the

city, dined, and visited

the Reichsburg Castle—

nestled above town on

a hill and filled with lore

and antiques, secret

passageways, and more.

Day 8: Bonn

This may have been our favorite city in Germany. Bonn is a college town, quite

modern, but with many historic buildings and Roman structures dating back to

the first century B.C. It was also the capital of West Germany and then the reunited

Germany until 1999. Our tour took us through the college area, shopping district,

and to the highlight of our day: the childhood home of Beethoven.

Nijmegen

Day 9: Nijmegen, Netherlands

I was fortunate enough to get the last spot on this

day’s excursion to the WWII museum here, where we

were able to sit through a lecture by a local man who

was eight when the German army invaded the area.

The stories were, as you can imagine, riveting, sad,

and ultimately triumphant (the town was liberated

by American British Troops in September 1944). What

stood out was the reverence all the people we met in

the Netherlands have for Americans. As our lecturer

said to all of us of “allied” descent: “Thank you to your

parents and grandparents—you saved our lives.”

Despite the wonderful times had on land, at the end of

every day, we found ourselves back on the Crystal Bach,

which was—in and of itself—a pretty special place to

return. How do you not look forward to returning to what

I can only equate as a top tier floating hotel and one of

the most comfortable rooms I have ever stayed in?

Some of the highlights of our time on the Bach included

the exquisite meals each and every day and nightly

entertainment provided by the lovely Roz and James,

our entertainment directors from New Zealand. On

numerous evenings while traveling between ports we

played team trivia contests, had special guest entertainers,

dancing, lectures, and more. And if I didn’t mention our

lounge staff, I would be remiss—what an on-the-ball and

congenial group they were—just like the entire crew!

One last note—our last night cruising back to Amsterdam

there was a Sound of Music trivia contest followed by a

singalong. May wife, Wendy is a Sound of Music NUT and

just happened to be chosen (wink-wink) to be on stage

as one of the singers—a night she will never forget. Nor

will those in the audience thinking, “why is that pretty

woman singing like Ethel Merman and not Julie Andrews?”

Honestly, she was great, and does know every word!

Of note was that this particular cruise was an annual

“Presidents Cruise,” one where we were able to spend

time and dine with Crystal President Tom Wolber, his

lovely wife Sharon, and Susan Robison, the director of

global public relations. They say you can judge a company

by the people who run it. Well, it was easy to understand

why the crew was as exemplary as they were. But was

it just this "special" cruise? We asked at least 10 other

travelers that question and the resounding response from

them, most having traveled with Crystal multiple times,

some multiple times each year, was: Crystal crewmembers

are by far the best in the cruise world.

MARCH 2020 | stylemg.com 81


To conclude, we just spent a week and

a half on one of the most luxurious

river ships in the world and had a

spectacular time. We also made

new friends like Joan and Dave from

Virginia., who we can’t wait to see

soon and possibly travel with again.

Any thought I had that there would be

any pretentiousness or stuffiness was

quickly dashed. Having traveled all

over the world I have come to realize

that there is nothing like traveling with

pure and simple elegance. We are now

completely spoiled and in fact are

planning our next Crystal Cruise: New

York City to Quebec City via the coast

of New England and Nova Scotia on the

Crystal Serenity, an ocean-going vessel.

“ACCORDING TO MY

SERVER, THE PORK

SHANK RIBLETS ‘ARE

BRAISED FOR HOURS

IN SHERRY AND

AROMATICS’—A

PROCESS THAT

ALLOWS THE

MARROW TO

MELT INTO THE

REDUCED BRAISING

LIQUID, RESULTING

IN TENDER,

SUCCULENT PORK

REMINISCENT OF ITS

VEAL NAMESAKE.”

Iwas just reading the “About” page on the website for Eureka! in Roseville. Lofty

goals and mission statement to be sure. But with 26 restaurants under their

umbrella, I’m guessing it’s not just braggadocio. What Eureka! is not is a big-box,

novella-sized-menu establishment with seating for the Smith and Jones family

reunions. On the contrary, the restaurant is cozy, comfortable, and efficient. The

menu follows suit featuring gastropub-style appetizers; healthy, protein-forward

salads; distinctive burgers; and brewhouse-inspired mains, such as blackened

fish tacos with mango salsa and fried chicken sliders with chili sauce and slaw.

I almost always gravitate to the “starters” menu in a gastropub, and in this situation went

with the osso buco riblets. According to my server, the pork shank riblets “are braised for

hours in sherry and aromatics”—a process that allows the marrow to melt into the reduced

braising liquid, resulting in tender, succulent pork reminiscent of its veal namesake. The

“firecracker aioli” condiment provided a piquant counterpunch to the rich marrowbone.

Next up, fish & chips with furikake. If you’re not familiar with this particular “F” word, get

acquainted soon. I found furikake in Hawaii years ago when it was used as a coating to pan

sear fish (it’s primary use is as a seasoning for rice) and have been a fan ever since. Eureka!

takes the British standard of battered white fish and tops it with the Japanese seasoning to

create something very umami. Crispy breading, sesame seeds, briney nori flakes, a touch of

sweetness, and moist whitefish produced a memorable adaptation of classic pub fare.

I happened to be doing research for an article about the best local burgers at the

same time I visited Eureka!, so it was my good fortune to find some possibilities for the

list. Most notably, the Fresno fig burger. The play on charcuterie in a bun wasn’t lost on

me and an obvious inclusion to my list. It may sound odd at first, but if you’ve savored

a slice of fromage, marmalade, and prosciutto on crostini…well, you see where I’m

going. The burger came with melted goat cheese,

Fresno Fig Burger fig marmalade, bacon, red onions, arugula, and

spicy porter mustard—all recognizable players

on the charcuterie playground and a welcome

addition to any burger.

One of the more appealing sidebars of the

great American bourbon craze popping up in

bars everywhere is using the spirit in foods,

and one of the best (although not newest) is in

desserts. Eureka! scores high marks here for

its bourbon barrel cake with bourbon caramel

and vanilla bean ice cream. I really wanted to

be finished after just one bite, but like Michael

Corleone said in Godfather Part III, “Just when I

Fish & Chips with Furikake thought I was out, they pull me back in.”

FOODIE FIND

DID YOU KNOW?

Vietnamese food is low in sugar and

almost always gluten-free, as many

of the dishes are made with rice

noodles, rice paper, and rice flour

instead of wheat.

With the balance between fresh

herbs and meats and a selective

use of spices to reach a fine taste,

it's considered one of the healthiest

cuisines in the world.

Many of the country's dishes include

five fundamental taste senses:

spicy, sour, bitter, salty, and sweet.

French cuisine has had a major

influence on their food—including

coffee and bread—due to the French

colonization of Vietnam.

Bo Urban Corner // If you’ve driven by Bo Urban Corner in Folsom and wondered if they serve bourbon, you’re

not alone. Also, the answer is no. At first glance, their sign may give you that impression, but when you walk inside, you’ll find

a family-owned Vietnamese eatery that’s warm and welcoming with a modest yet satisfying made-to-order menu. The staff is

extremely helpful and happy to answer questions or give guidance on what to order. Everything is done in a build-it-yourself

style, making it a perfect pick for particular palates. First, choose your protein (whether it’s chicken, beef, salmon, pork, shrimp,

or tofu); next, choose what to do with that protein—a noodle bowl, fresh rolls, or a bánh mì (sandwich)—and then patiently

wait for your mouthwatering meal to be placed in front of you. Speaking of scrumptious, their homemade peanut sauce is

served warm and probably the best I’ve had. I slathered it on my Fresh Rolls, which were stuffed with vermicelli, cilantro,

lettuce, and shrimp, before being tightly wrapped in rice paper. They came in an order of six, so you can share—or not. I

also enjoyed a Noodle Bowl made up of vermicelli, pork, lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and peanuts with a fried egg roll.

On top? More peanut sauce, some fish oil, and hoisin sauce. Did I mention the peanut sauce? Yum! 704 East Bidwell Street,

Sacramento Pizza Co.

Granite's Wings

Rock-N-Fire

Pete's Restaurant

& Brewhouse

Wing It

Bar 101

The beginning of chicken wings, as we know them today, was in 1964 when

Theresa Bellissimo of Buffalo, NY, fried some up and added hot sauce.

Nowadays, they’re a sporting event staple. Seeking some spots to feed your

LIST need during March Madness? Read on for a few of our faves.

Chicken Wings

THE

By Tara Harbert

Hot

Sacramento Pizza Co. in Folsom makes slightly

spicy, deliciously tangy Tandoori Chicken Wings

that are a serious game-day game changer.

Coated in a curry flavored, house-made sauce

that’s a family recipe, fans come flying in from near

and far to get a taste. Whether you want bone-in

or boneless, and six or 12 pieces, the price (and

taste) is right. sacpizzaco.com

At Granite’s Wings in Roseville, they definitely

aren’t “winging” it. In fact, the family behind

the eatery was the first to bring Buffalo wings

to Sacramento and is the real deal. Their Garlic

Parmesan Wings are particularly praiseworthy and

perfect for people who can’t take the heat. With the

option to order up to 50 pieces, they’re the primo

pick for a large group gathering. graniteswings.com

Rock-N-Fire in Folsom brings their restaurant’s

namesake to the Mango Habanero Wings. Crispy

on the outside and juicy on the inside, this finger

(and finger-lickin’-good) food delivers a spicy,

sweet heat that’ll have you reaching for the

closest beer. (Good thing they have 12 on tap.)

Note: This sauce is their spiciest, so don’t say we

didn’t warn you! rocknfirerestaurants.com

If you think spice is nice, then you’ll love the

Sweet & Spicy Glazed Buffalo Wings at Pete’s

Restaurant & Brewhouse in Folsom. Made with

charbroiled chicken and thickly coated in a

slightly sticky, lightly sweet, and spicy sauce,

you’ll be an instant fan. For a real steal, order them

during happy hour (Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m.).

petesrestaurantbrewhousefolsom.com

Wing It in Jackson makes some pretty cluckin’

amazing wings. From shareable portions to large

party sizes, and myriad flavor and spice options

(think garlic parm, classic, and honey garlic), they

appease all appetites. The fantastically stickysweet

Teriyaki Wings never fail to wow a crowd

and will have all your partygoers reaching for “just

one more.” wingiton49.com

When it comes to the wonderful world of wings, it’s

hard to commit to just one flavor. Thankfully, Bar 101 in

Roseville allows you to pick two (if you politely ask!).

Start with the standard Buffalo Wings and, depending

on your palate, go (insanely) spicy with their "just

plain ridiculous sauce" or play it safe with zesty BBQ.

All are house-made (including the accompanying

ranch), equally delish, and certain to satisfy your every

gnawing desire. bar101roseville.com

On the Rocks

3 Wonderful Whiskeys

It’s a wonderful world of whiskeys out there, but luckily Northern California makes

some of the best. Whether you prefer yours neat, on the rocks, or mixed into a craft

cocktail, we have a locally distilled bottle for you. —Compiled by Megan Wiskus

The Young Prince

TASTING NOTES: Composed of 52% corn, 30%

barley, and 18% rye, this bourbon is complex, slightly

sweet, and has notes of spice, with a long, smooth

finish and soft mouthfeel. Even at 96 proof, it’s both

delicate and full-flavored.

10th Street Peated Single

Malt American Whisky

TASTING NOTES: Balanced, buttery, and fullbodied,

this single malt whisky— crafted using

peated barley sourced from Scotland and mineral

rich water from Sierra snowmelt—boasts a subtle

complexity, creamy flavors of vanilla and dark red

apple peels, and a lingering peaty finish.

TASTING NOTES: This florally, malty whiskey has

a nice grain flavor without tasting of “peat”—the

smoky and sometimes intense flavor associated

with many modern Scotch brands—making it

approachable and super smooth when sipping neat
