Style Magazine - March 2022

We cover food in every issue of STYLE—and for good reason. Our readers have made it clear that food needs to be one of the most important parts of our editorial. Here’s an interesting fact: Local area residents in the STYLE Magazine regions eat out more than seven times each week, which include dining at a restaurant or fast-food chain as well as take out, etc. Our choices have not only grown immensely but the quality of food and the restaurants have as well. Something that does stand out are the number of breakfast spots that dot our landscape. Add to that the eateries that have found life in offering Sunday or weekend brunch menus and we find ourselves in brunch Shangri-La. Our hope is that our “Let’s Do Brunch!” feature (page 53) and its stunning photos will motivate you to try something new—including the “brunch in a glass” you see on the cover! Don’t miss “Taste of the Town,” a special section in this month’s issue that reminds us that our choices for great places to eat are plentiful and delicious. Speaking of “don’t miss” features, you might want to check out our piece on libraries (“Beyond Books” on page 20). What may seem like a thing of the past may truly be one of the most outstanding resources offered to you and your family. From books (bound, digital, and audible) and videos, to story times for kids and 3-D printers, all this and more—along with the amazing librarians and staff that make our libraries a fun and educational community—are resources you should be using!

We cover food in every issue of STYLE—and for good reason. Our<br />

readers have made it clear that food needs to be one of the most<br />

important parts of our editorial. Here’s an interesting fact: Local<br />

area residents in the STYLE <strong>Magazine</strong> regions eat out more than<br />

seven times each week, which include dining at a restaurant or<br />

fast-food chain as well as take out, etc. Our choices have not only<br />

grown immensely but the quality of food and the restaurants<br />

have as well.<br />

I first moved to this area in<br />

late 1988 and remember all the<br />

great local area restaurants very<br />

clearly—that’s because there were<br />

very, very few. As one might expect,<br />

the dining landscape has changed<br />

drastically over the past 30+ years<br />

and mostly for the good. Something<br />

that does stand out are the number<br />

of breakfast spots that dot our<br />

landscape. Add to that the eateries<br />

that have found life in offering<br />

Sunday or weekend brunch menus<br />

and we find ourselves in brunch<br />

Shangri-La. Our hope is that our “Let’s Do Brunch!” feature (page 53) and its stunning<br />

photos will motivate you to try something new—including the “brunch in a glass” you<br />

see on the cover!<br />

Don’t miss “Taste of the Town,” a special section in<br />

How do<br />

you take<br />

your<br />

coffee?<br />

“I take my coffee with<br />

espresso, vanilla creamer, and<br />

oat milk”—Bella Nolen<br />



individual meal<br />

“Give it to me light and sweet! A<br />

black and white mocha has been<br />

my drink of choice for years.”<br />

—Nelly Kislyanka<br />

“I take my Folgers coffee with<br />

vanilla creamer and my cat on<br />

my lap!”—Bettie Grijalva<br />

family meal<br />




“I’m not a coffee drinker but I<br />

do love my herbal teas! I like to<br />

brew the loose leaves myself<br />

and enjoy different flavors from<br />

around the world.”—JoAnn<br />

DeLise<br />

“I exclusively drink iced mochas—<br />

even in the winter! A Breville<br />

espresso machine was my<br />

pandemic splurge.”—Kourtney<br />

Jason<br />

“I usually take my coffee black but<br />

throw in the occasional bulletproof<br />

coffee, which is coffee, unsalted<br />

butter, and MCT oil (like coconut<br />

oil).”—Ryan Martinez<br />

“I warm up some vanilla flovored<br />

almond milk, add a squirt of<br />

agave syrup, froth, then brew<br />

coffee into the mix. Froth more<br />

if more mixing is needed.”<br />

TAKE A<br />

(SPRING)<br />

BREAK<br />

We know<br />

you’re<br />

itching for a good getaway after<br />

being cooped up at home, which<br />

is why we’ve rounded up some<br />

of the top spots to travel to this<br />

season. From the stunning Sierras<br />

to the dazzling seas, we’ve got<br />

a host of hot destinations to<br />

choose from—and they’re all just<br />

a few hours away. Go online, pick<br />

your place, and get packing!<br />



Is your house in need of a good cleaning<br />

after the winter months? Are you looking<br />

to clear away some of the clutter you’ve<br />

recently accumulated? Local decluttering<br />

expert Kristina Lewis shares her 10 Best<br />

Spring-Cleaning Tips and hacks to get<br />

the job done in order to have a (mostly)<br />

impeccable home for the rest of the year.<br />

Check the web for her most pertinent tips—<br />

including one about cleaning in a circle and<br />

another about playing your favorite tunes<br />

while on the job!<br />




In this month’s “The Road Beat”<br />

column, auto aficionado and local<br />

resident Mitchell Weitzman takes<br />

the <strong>2022</strong> Toyota Highlander Hybrid<br />

Platinum for a spin and shares<br />

his honest review. “The hybrid<br />

powertrain consists of a fourcylinder<br />

with electrical assistance,<br />

and works smoothly and in<br />

harmony—far smoother than other<br />

four-cylinders from Toyota that can<br />

be downright meat grinders…” is just<br />

a sneak peak of what he has to say<br />

about the hybrid SUV.<br />

Picture Perfect<br />

Attention budding photographers! Send us a vertical<br />

photo of anything that represents “Where We<br />

Live”—a local park, hiking or biking trail, body of<br />

water, foodie find, etc.—and tell us why, in 20 words<br />

or less, this photo says it all. Our favorite pics will appear<br />

in an upcoming issue. Send your submissions<br />

#What’sUp?<br />


People & Places<br />

in the News<br />

Folsom Lake College (flc.losrios.<br />

edu) has been selected to participate<br />

in the Military Articulation<br />

Platform (MAP) <strong>2022</strong> Cohort. The<br />

program ensures all U.S. military<br />

veterans and active-duty service<br />

members receive college transfer<br />

credit for the rigorous training and<br />

coursework completed during active<br />

duty. They can also receive up to one<br />

year of Folsom Lake College credit<br />

towards academic programs leading<br />

to graduation, transfer to a four-year<br />

university, and numerous careers.<br />

The Arts Council of Placer County<br />

announced their 2021-22 grant<br />

recipients who received roughly<br />

$95,000 for their contribution<br />

of art throughout Placer County.<br />

Recipients included Art League<br />

of Lincoln, Auburn Symphony,<br />

Blue Line Arts, Penryn Workshop,<br />

On Native Ground, Rocklin<br />

Fine Arts, Roseville High Music<br />

Boosters, and others that can<br />

be found at placerarts.org.<br />

The El Dorado County Chamber of<br />

Commerce recently delivered awards<br />

to outstanding community members.<br />

Service of the Year Award; Kara<br />

Sather received the Achievement<br />

in Tourism Award; Barry Smith<br />

received the Golden Slate Award; and<br />

Andrew Vondershmitt received<br />

the Historical Preservation Award.<br />

Did you know that “tree topping”—the<br />

indiscriminate cutting of trunks and<br />

branches back to stubs—increases long<br />

term risks, permanently disfigures and<br />

stresses trees, and can lead to higher<br />

maintenance costs? In Folsom, ‘topping’<br />

a protected tree (including residential<br />

trees within 12.5 feet from a sidewalk<br />

or street) can result in fines and<br />

corrective action. Pruning protected<br />

trees requires a tree permit and you<br />

can get more advice from your local<br />

arborist and folsom.ca.us/arboristfaq.<br />

The El Dorado Hills Community<br />

Services District has a new AI<br />

Robot equipped with HD cameras,<br />

call abilities, and speaking abilities.<br />

Its purpose is to operate a mobile<br />

security camera on the property<br />

as well as increase community<br />

engagement opportunities.<br />

The El Dorado County Office of<br />

Education (aded.edcoe.org) has<br />

formed a new Adult Learning<br />

Center in El Dorado. The center<br />

offers free instruction to help<br />

build skills and meet personal<br />

goals. Courses can be taken at the<br />

students’ own pace and will them<br />

improve basic reading, writing, and<br />

math skills, prepare for the GED in<br />

English or Spanish, work towards a<br />

high school diploma, explore career<br />

options, prepare for college, and<br />

develop digital and financial literacy.<br />

Registrations are now open for<br />

Northern California’s most popular<br />

Homesteading<br />

Locals Who Live Off the Land<br />


Homesteading is living self-sufficiently by way of growing your own food, raising<br />

animals for meat or other food products like milk and eggs, and making your own<br />

home supplies. You may have caught a glimpse of the concept on shows such<br />

as Alaska: The Last Frontier, but did you know that some of your neighbors are<br />

homesteaders, too? We’ve profiled four locals who embody this unique lifestyle.<br />

Flicker Farm,<br />

Placerville<br />

When difficult events and a run-ofthe-mill<br />

lifestyle weren’t bringing<br />

joy, Nicole Wilkey, her husband<br />

Brian, and daughter Elle (10)<br />

decided it was time for a change.<br />

“While living in the suburbs through<br />

traumatic events, your perspective<br />

changes,” says Nicole. “Brian and<br />

I would only see each other in<br />

passing because he’s a firefighter<br />

and I was working at an OR,” she<br />

recalls. “We wanted to raise our<br />

only child more sustainably and in<br />

less of the rat race.”<br />

Nowadays, the Wilkeys own 64<br />

chickens, seven pigs, one donkey,<br />

six goats, and about 20 rabbits.<br />

With so many animals—many of<br />

which are used as food sources<br />

for the family—Nicole’s passion<br />

for meat education runs deep.<br />

“It’s disappointing to me how our<br />

society as a whole views food and<br />

where it comes from,” she shares,<br />

recounting the time a preschool<br />

tour came to the farm. “Many of<br />

the kids loved bacon but didn’t<br />

know that it came from an animal.<br />

I think it’s incredibly important to<br />

love all animals and treat them<br />

well while they’re here,” says<br />

Nicole. “I just want people to be<br />

more connected to their food and<br />

educate themselves on where it’s<br />

coming from.”<br />

Check out @flickerfarm on<br />

Instagram. To purchase goat milk<br />

soap, lotion, and herbal salves,<br />

the lookout for their truck which<br />

occasionally sells flower bouquets<br />

around town.<br />

The Lyttge Farmette,<br />

Shingle Springs<br />

For Wyatte Lyttge, her husband, and their four<br />

children, the homesteading lifestyle has proven to<br />

be a blessing over the past two years.<br />

“We have two kids with special needs (autism<br />

and epilepsy) and the desire to build them a<br />

safe haven really tugged at us,” she shares.<br />

“We closed on our home at the beginning of the<br />

pandemic and were so glad to try something<br />

different. Being resourceful and learning new<br />

things surrounded by beauty has gotten us<br />

through the chaos.”<br />

The Lyttge family owns everything from alpacas<br />

to pigs. Wyatte especially finds the relationship<br />

with animals most rewarding about this lifestyle.<br />

“There’s something so magical about watching<br />

life begin,” she says. “We care deeply for all of<br />

Aside from raising animals, The Lyttge Farmette produces<br />

lots of goods to sell—including turkeys, ducks, chickens,<br />

and quail eggs, as well as baked goods like hand pies and<br />

chocolate brownies, canned items, soaps, and bath salts.<br />

their Instagram presence has flourished in the four years<br />

they’ve lived this lifestyle. “I’m from the Bay Area and did not<br />

even own a dog growing up,” says Christina. “I started the<br />

platform (Instagram) to document our home build but also to<br />

connect with other homesteaders.” She recalls the time they<br />

got goats and struggled to raise them. “[The goats] were<br />

really mean! I started to ask questions on Instagram and<br />

[began getting] advice on how to handle them.”<br />

Nowadays, Christina is the one dishing out advice and tips<br />

about the homesteading life—especially on DIY projects, like<br />

a dupe for a pricey Studio McGee bed frame. “Hopefully, my<br />

Instagram can help inspire others,” she says.<br />

Christina and Trevor Heinritz take the term “DIY” to a<br />

whole new level.<br />

“After graduating from Chico State and wanting out of the<br />

college scene, we closed escrow on a 10-acre lot that was<br />

raw land…there was poison oak and brush with not even<br />

a driveway or a septic well!” says Christina, adding, “who,<br />

fresh out of college, can afford to build a house?”<br />

Instead of hiring contractors for everything, their budget<br />

propelled them into the do-it-yourself spirit. “We literally<br />

built our house from the ground up,” she says. Aside from<br />

a growing family (Frankie is two and Georgie is an infant),<br />

Three Sisters Farmstand, Folsom<br />

Michelle Kwek is living proof that anyone can have a green<br />

thumb—even if you don’t live on sprawling farmland.<br />

Michelle first started gardening as a passion project. “I have<br />

this lemon tree and during the pandemic, I wanted to be<br />

able to share, so I put out a little stand [of lemons] outside<br />

my driveway for free.” Now, Michelle has eight fruit trees in<br />

her front yard, along with raised beds and items in pots. “I<br />

have kids (Ellery (12), Camille (10), and Amaya (7)), so it’s<br />

a multi-purpose backyard,” she says. “There’s a lot you can<br />

do with a relatively small space. It’s overwhelming to do it all<br />

at once so for those who want to try growing on their own,<br />

plan out incremental phases and give yourself grace,” she<br />

recommends.<br />

Michelle also plays with garden space at the Twin Lakes Food<br />

Bank in Folsom where she’s the Gardening Coordinator. “I get<br />

to manage a quarter acre garden here,” she shares. “I think<br />

it’s really important that we’re able to give people access to<br />

fresh, homegrown produce.”<br />

Unique Library Programs<br />


“Books are just the tip<br />

of the library iceberg,”<br />

according to the<br />

California State Library<br />

(CSL). In fact, California’s<br />

public libraries provide<br />

435,000 programs<br />

with over 10.6 million<br />

attendees a year. Book<br />

clubs, workshops,<br />

parenting resources,<br />

literacy classes–these<br />

are just a sampling of<br />

how public libraries<br />

facilitate exploration,<br />

lifelong learning,<br />

connection, and fun.<br />

Why are these<br />

programs vital for<br />

communities? “Public<br />

libraries are community<br />

hubs that bring people<br />

together and close the<br />

opportunity gap by<br />

connecting people to<br />

essential services and<br />

resources,” states the<br />

CSL. Read on to learn<br />

about some of the<br />

programs and resources<br />

offered at public<br />

libraries in our region.<br />

Folsom Public Library<br />

Folsom Public Library offers youth and<br />

adult Health & Wellness Kits that are<br />

available for a three-week checkout. Each<br />

kit is curated around a particular mental<br />

health topic. For adults, topics include<br />

Alzheimer’s disease, postpartum depression,<br />

stress reduction, and more. Kits for youth<br />

help them navigate emotions such as worry,<br />

confidence, and anger. Health & Wellness<br />

Kits may contain books, activities, resource<br />

lists, and/or toys relating to the designated<br />

topic—all stored in a tote bag for adults<br />

or a backpack for youth. Most bags also<br />

contain a discussion guide to encourage<br />

and help individuals talk to someone on the<br />

topic.<br />

The library has partnered with GetSetUp<br />

to provide adults aged 55 and older with<br />

Folsom Public Library Health & Wellness Kits<br />

free Well-being Classes. The interactive<br />

online classes cover health, fitness, mental<br />

health, the arts, and more. Participants<br />

can connect with others who share similar<br />

interests while discovering new hobbies.<br />

Folsom Library’s patrons also have<br />

access to thousands of online classes to<br />

learn new vocational and educational skills,<br />

Mix<br />

It Up<br />

Spotlight on<br />

Mixed-Media Artists<br />

by BELLA NOLEN<br />

Mixed media allows artists to play with<br />

multiple materials without the fear of<br />

boundaries. Whether it’s paint, glass,<br />

metal, or cloth, this art form encourages<br />

imagination and creativity by utilizing<br />

several elements. Meet some of our area’s<br />

accomplished mixed-media artists here.<br />

The Clearing<br />

viewer and that the message<br />

is somewhat obscured [and]<br />

requires rumination.<br />

How did you develop your<br />

artistic skills?<br />

I took some workshops with<br />

Anne Bradley (a fellow-gallery<br />

member) and loved it! I’ve also<br />

taken a few online courses,<br />

learned repousse (a metal<br />

technique), and continue to<br />

study composition and the<br />

work of other artists.<br />

What advice would you give<br />

to someone just starting out?<br />

Stop making sense! (I<br />

borrowed this from the band<br />

Talking Heads). I had to stop<br />

making “sense” of everything<br />

in order to do abstract art.<br />

Pay attention to composition,<br />

colors, and values, and work<br />

with textures and mediums<br />

that you have fun with. This<br />

journey is all about fun!<br />

Where is your favorite place<br />

to create?<br />

In my studio. It’s hard to bring<br />

all that stuff anywhere else to<br />

paint.<br />

Where can your art be<br />

found?<br />

Auburn Old Town Gallery, Art<br />

League of Lincoln, Blue Line<br />

Arts, and on my website.<br />

Concentric<br />

Gia McNutt<br />

giamcnutt.com<br />

What attracts you to mixed<br />

media?<br />

I’m in love with textures and<br />

the abstract expression of art.<br />

Textures consume me— they are<br />

rich, varied, and found in nature.<br />

When I first started art, I didn’t<br />

“get” abstract art. Now, I love that<br />

it’s open for interpretation by the<br />

Chris K.<br />

Foster<br />

chrisfostergallery.<br />

com<br />

What attracts<br />

you to mixed<br />

media?<br />

The unknown<br />

of it. One has<br />

to experiment<br />

to find out<br />

what works.<br />

For example, I<br />

learned that you<br />

can put oils over<br />

acrylic paints but<br />

not acrylic paints<br />

over oils. And<br />

there are failures<br />

Point of View<br />

if the additions are not permanent.<br />

Another example, watercolors over<br />

acrylics do not work. The paints<br />

move around and are too fugitive.<br />

Dangling Conversation<br />

State Theater<br />

What attracts you to<br />

mixed media?<br />

I like the idea of being<br />

able to use anything in an<br />

art piece. The objective<br />

is communicating<br />

something with the<br />

artwork—and using<br />

anything that will assist in<br />

that communication. Using<br />

imagination is a large<br />

factor just because it’s fun!<br />

How did you develop your<br />

artistic skills?<br />

I made a collage by taping<br />

magazine pieces to the<br />

recessed panel of a door in<br />

my apartment. At the time,<br />

I’d never heard the term<br />

“collage” and didn’t know<br />

what it was. I just wanted to<br />

brighten up my apartment<br />

and do something fun.<br />

I’ve also done hundreds of<br />

hours of individual study<br />

which still continues today.<br />

With YouTube, you can<br />

learn all sorts of interesting<br />

techniques which you can<br />

make your own.<br />

What advice would you<br />

give to someone just<br />

starting out?<br />

Hold nothing back. Every<br />

piece might not end up<br />

being exactly what you<br />

were hoping for, but<br />

every piece teaches you<br />

something that you can<br />

carry forward in future art<br />

works. Use anything and<br />

everything that inspires or<br />

moves you.<br />

Where is your favorite<br />

place to create?<br />

In my little studio which I<br />

set up in a bedroom.<br />

Where can your art be<br />

found? On my website.<br />

Light Traffic<br />

Kerri Warner<br />

kerriwarner.com<br />

What attracts you to<br />

mixed media?<br />

The freedom to create<br />

with no boundaries—<br />

there is no right or<br />

wrong. It’s all about<br />

improvisation and<br />

figuring out how each<br />

media interacts with<br />

the other to create the<br />

finished product.<br />

How did you develop<br />

your artistic skills?<br />

Trial and error. I am selftaught<br />

and come from<br />

a very talented family.<br />

We were always involved<br />

in DIY projects—from<br />

creating sceneries,<br />

props, and costumes for<br />

theatrical productions<br />

to artwork for our home.<br />

My parents always reused<br />

and recycled. One of<br />

Food Bank Clothing Program<br />

my favorite childhood<br />

memories is a birthday<br />

party where my mom<br />

made circus animals<br />

out of cardboard boxes<br />

for each attendee. We all<br />

spent hours sitting in<br />

our boxes.<br />

What advice would you<br />

give to someone just<br />

starting out?<br />

Be bold. Let your<br />

creativity be your guide.<br />

If someone tells you<br />

“that will never work”<br />

or “that can’t be done,”<br />

experiment anyway.<br />

Where is your favorite<br />

place to create?<br />

In my studio. I’m<br />

surrounded with things<br />

that inspire me and I<br />

have the freedom to be<br />

messy and experiment.<br />

Where can your art be<br />

found?<br />

All over the country.<br />

Locally, my work can be<br />

seen on a SacRT train,<br />

covering the walls of the<br />

MRI suites at the UCD<br />

Children’s Hospital, and<br />

wrapping utility boxes in<br />

Sacramento, Davis, and<br />

soon to be in Natomas.<br />

Longevity<br />

Rules<br />

24 HOURS TO A<br />



Living a healthier life doesn’t have to be hard.<br />

Every day we consciously (and unconsciously)<br />

make choices that can either hurt or help our<br />

overall well-being—from what we choose to<br />

eat and drink to postponing the day’s workout<br />

to staying up past your bedtime. Since we’re<br />

all given 24 hours in a day, we’ve asked<br />

local experts to share easy, healthy habits to<br />

incorporate into your life from morning to<br />

night. Read on for their tips and see which<br />

ones you can add to your daily routine—<br />

starting today!<br />

7 a.m.: Wake up screen-free<br />

“Before grabbing the phone, give yourself<br />

5-10 minutes to visualize your day, feed<br />

yourself some positivity, or even just reflect<br />

on your dreams. While it may seem odd,<br />

this ‘brain hack’ reinforces a positive mental<br />

attitude and may contribute to a healthier,<br />

happier, more successful day.” —Isidora<br />

Marin and Ryan Martinez, Co-owners of<br />

Bikram Yoga Folsom, bikramyogafolsom.<br />

com<br />

7:15 a.m.: Meditate<br />

“Remember this acronym: RPM, which<br />

stands for ‘rise, pee, meditate.’ So, wake up,<br />

use the restroom, then meditate for 15-30<br />

minutes. Meditation reduces stress, anxiety,<br />

depression, insomnia, and more.” —Andrea<br />

Tagamolila, Spa Director at Serenity Spa |<br />

Soul Yoga, serenityspaonline.com<br />

8 a.m.: Protect your skin<br />

“Daily use of broad-spectrum SPF 30<br />

sunscreen (even on cloudy days) can<br />

help reduce your risk of developing skin<br />

cancers, wrinkles, sagging skin, and age<br />

spots.” —Lee Lipton PA-C, Group Fitness<br />

Director at Spare Time Sports Clubs,<br />

sparetimesportsclubs.com<br />

9 a.m.: Eat a high fat and protein breakfast<br />

“Make this first meal full of healthy fats and<br />

proteins for a long-lasting, healthy meal. Use butter<br />

(or, even better, ghee), eggs, avocado, almond butter,<br />

tahini, hemp seeds, nuts, olive oil…anything with<br />

lots of good fats. And yes, bacon counts!” —Isidora<br />

Marin and Ryan Martinez, Co-owners of Bikram<br />

Yoga Folsom, bikramyogafolsom.com<br />

10:30 a.m.: Walk daily<br />

“Take a ten-minute walk during your morning and<br />

afternoon breaks to get the blood flowing. This<br />

will increase your productivity as it helps promote<br />

blood flow to the brain while allowing your mind<br />

to relax from your daily tasks, all the while keeping<br />

you and your heart healthy.” —Isidora Marin and<br />

Ryan Martinez, Co-owners of Bikram Yoga Folsom,<br />

| health & wellness |<br />

12 p.m.: Cut off caffeine<br />

“After noon, it’s decaf for you! As a tea<br />

and coffee drinker myself, this is hard<br />

for me to stick to. By cutting off your<br />

caffeine consumption at 12, it helps your<br />

body process that caffeine so that it’s<br />

out of your system by the time you’re<br />

heading to bed.” —Cambria Mason,<br />

PA-C of Marshall Family Medicine in<br />

Placerville, marshallmedical.org<br />

12:30 p.m.: Post-lunch brush and<br />

floss<br />

“After you brush, find that abandoned<br />

dental floss in your bathroom drawer.<br />

Research has shown that flossing your<br />

teeth once a day helps reduce levels<br />

of harmful bacteria that can increase<br />

your risk of gum disease, heart disease,<br />

and type 2 diabetes.” —Lee Lipton PA-C,<br />

Group Fitness Director at Spare Time<br />

Sports Clubs, sparetimesportsclubs.com<br />

3 p.m.: Have a dance party<br />

“Dance like nobody’s watching! Rev up<br />

your mid-day slumps by putting on a<br />

song that makes you want to dance in<br />

your chair. Better yet, get up and move<br />

around. You’ll burn calories and improve<br />

your mood all in about three to five<br />

minutes!” —Lee Lipton PA-C, Group<br />

Fitness Director at Spare Time Sports<br />

Clubs, sparetimesportsclubs.com<br />

4:30 p.m.: Cultivate community<br />

“This is where you get to de-stress<br />

and enjoy the companionship of your<br />

family and friends. Go for a walk, enjoy<br />

afternoon tea with a friend or have a<br />

Zoom call with your book club. Just<br />

make sure you schedule some time to<br />

connect with loved ones—even if it’s<br />

just 15 minutes.” —Heather Crivellone,<br />

Personal Trainer at Roseville Health &<br />

Wellness Center<br />

5 p.m.: 1-minute mindfulness<br />

“Did you know that even one minute of<br />

mindfulness practice can help reset your<br />

mood, recharge your energy, and relax<br />

your body? Take 60 seconds to find a<br />

comfortable position and focus on the<br />

rhythm of your breathing; relax tension<br />

in your shoulders and jaw; look around<br />

and notice the details of something<br />

around you; acknowledge that you are<br />

here, now.” —Lee Lipton PA-C, Group<br />

Fitness Director at Spare Time Sports<br />

Clubs, sparetimesportsclubs.com<br />

6 p.m.: Eat a healthy dinner<br />

“While this may sound broad and<br />

confusing, a healthy meal simply involves<br />

food from all major food groups: Fruits,<br />

vegetables, and lean meat. A big breakfast<br />

and light dinner are proven to be a<br />

healthier practice as it can help burn<br />

more calories throughout the day.”<br />

—Austin Saavedra, MD, Family Medicine<br />

Physician with Dignity Health Mercy<br />

Medical Group, dignityhealth.org<br />

7 p.m.: Try self-abhyanga<br />

(massage)<br />

“Self-massage helps with blood flow and<br />

circulation. Oleation (aka oil massage) of<br />

our largest organ (the skin) promotes selfcare<br />

and self-love, and is very grounding<br />

and relaxing. Tip: Use an oil like jojoba<br />

and warm it up beforehand. Massage<br />

starting at the crown of the head, then<br />

face, and move down to the entire body.<br />

Allow these oils to absorb for as long<br />

as you can before enjoying a warm<br />

shower or bath.” —Andrea Tagamolila,<br />

Spa Director at Serenity Spa | Soul Yoga,<br />

serenityspaonline.com<br />

7:30 p.m.: Make time for recreation<br />

“This is very important in leading a<br />

happy life since it affects how we feel<br />

and think. You can explore and try new<br />

hobbies such as learning an instrument<br />

or doing crafts.” —Austin Saavedra,<br />

MD, Family Medicine Physician with<br />

Dignity Health Mercy Medical Group,<br />

dignityhealth.org<br />

9 p.m.: Wind down<br />

“Begin to unwind and get ready for the<br />

next day. Take a warm Epsom salt bath,<br />

read a book, and begin to turn off all<br />

electronic devices. Studies have shown<br />

that reducing blue light and cutting back<br />

on screen time before bed will help with<br />

getting a quality night sleep.” —Heather<br />

Crivellone, Personal Trainer at Roseville<br />

Health & Wellness Center<br />

9:45 p.m.: Steal 15 minutes for you<br />

“Many of us put off self-care to get<br />

our other tasks done. As part of your<br />

nightly routine, have a planned 15<br />

minutes for yourself. This is the time<br />

for you to do something for you and<br />

you alone. It is your time to destress.<br />

This could be another time for<br />

meditation, yoga stretches, or listening<br />

to music. Just do something that you<br />

enjoy.” —Cambria Mason, PA-C of<br />

Marshall Family Medicine in Placerville,<br />

marshallmedical.org<br />

10 p.m.: Go screen-free<br />

“Screens should go to bed before you do.<br />

When you’re looking at the TV or phone,<br />

there is a blue light that can lead your<br />

body to produce less melatonin. Melatonin<br />

is a hormone that your body naturally<br />

produces to help ready your body for<br />

sleep. By not looking at screens for the<br />

hour leading up to bedtime, you better<br />

prepare your body for sleep.” —Cambria<br />

Mason, PA-C of Marshall Family Medicine<br />

in Placerville, marshallmedical.org<br />

10:30 p.m.: Practice gratitude<br />

“Gratitude is one of the easiest and<br />

quickest ways to shift our mood.<br />

Close your eyes, put your hand on<br />

your heart, take three deep breaths<br />

and ask yourself: ‘What am I grateful<br />

for?’ Take a few moments to consider<br />

the people, places, experiences, and<br />

all the gifts we’ve been given. Allow<br />

yourself to be filled with gratitude<br />

and appreciation; allow a gentle smile.<br />

When you’re ready, slowly float your<br />

eyes open.” —Andrea Tagamolila, Spa<br />

Director at Serenity Spa | Soul Yoga,<br />

serenityspaonline.com<br />

11 p.m.-7 a.m.: Get eight hours<br />

of rest<br />

“While the amount of sleep needed<br />

varies with age, it is recommended for<br />

adults to have at least seven to eight<br />

hours of sleep. It is also beneficial to<br />

have a consistent sleep schedule—<br />

including waking up early at the same<br />

time every day and setting bedtime<br />

early enough that will get you the<br />

recommended hours of sleep needed.”<br />

Setting<br />

Goals<br />

for<br />

Summer<br />

With so many<br />

world-class hiking<br />

destinations in our<br />

back yard, making<br />

your hiking bucket<br />

list should be easy.<br />

Do you want to do<br />

a thru-hike of the<br />

Tahoe Rim Trail or<br />

backpack several<br />

days on the Pacific<br />

Coast Trail?<br />

Getting in shape<br />

and knowing your<br />

gear is key for these<br />

longer trips. Here<br />

are some good<br />

recommendations:<br />

1<br />

Break-in your gear. Never<br />

start a long hike (more<br />

than five miles) or a multiday<br />

trip with brand new<br />

gear. This is especially<br />

true for your shoes. Test<br />

out and break in your new<br />

gear on easier trails, like<br />

the Down and Up Trail.<br />

2<br />

Plan the logistics. On<br />

many longer hikes, you<br />

will need to leave a car at<br />

the endpoint and arrange<br />

a drop-off at your starting<br />

point. For multi-day trips,<br />

you may need to arrange<br />

food drop-offs at key<br />

points of the trail.<br />

3<br />

Hike with extra weight.<br />

On longer trips, you will<br />

be carrying significantly<br />

more weight than normal.<br />

Get in shape by carrying<br />

extra weight on shorter<br />

trails to prepare for the<br />

extra effort.<br />

Do<br />

you have a<br />

favorite trail in the<br />

region you’d like to see<br />

featured? Tell us all<br />

Dentistry is Dr. Boyechko’s passion.<br />

This passion drives her to change<br />

people’s lives by improving their<br />

smiles. Her passion began in the<br />

Soviet Union as a dental student. She was not<br />

able to graduate from Soviet dental school due<br />

to her Christian beliefs. Not one to give up,<br />

she pursued her dream after she arrived in the<br />

United States as a refugee.<br />

With only self-taught English, she worked as<br />

a dental technician, graduated from Portland<br />

State University with Bachelor of Arts and<br />

received her DMD diploma from Oregon<br />

Health Science University School of Dentistry.<br />

In addition to practicing dentistry in her<br />

private offices in Oregon and California,<br />

she was also teaching in OHSU and UCLA<br />

dental schools. This allowed her to share<br />

her knowledge, experience, and passion with<br />

dental students.<br />

Dr. Boyechko now enjoys her thriving practice<br />

in Cameron Park. Her patients often travel to<br />

see her due to having trust and confidence in<br />

her expertise.<br />

In her practice, she utilizes the most advanced<br />

dental technology such as Computer Assisted<br />

Design (CAD) and Computer Assisted<br />

Manufacturing (CAM) for crowns, bridges,<br />

and dentures. Digital X-rays and CBCT<br />

(Cone-beam Computer Tomography) assist<br />

her in placing and restoring implants. She also<br />

offers strengthening teeth with Invisalign and<br />

SureSmile.<br />

Uniquely, she fabricates crowns and bridges<br />

in her in-house lab, which allows for greater<br />

precision, quality control and delivering them<br />

on the same day.<br />

Dr. Boyechko’s passion is fueled with every<br />

smile that is created by her and her team.<br />

She believes “Your smile is a door to your<br />

soul and if you love your smile, you can truly<br />

achieve anything.”<br />

SPRING<br />

FLINGS<br />

Seasonal Fashion Trends<br />

by BELLA NOLEN<br />

6<br />

Spring has sprung—and along with it,<br />

some new styles to get behind! Below<br />

are some up-and-coming fashion trends<br />

to be on the lookout for this year.<br />

3<br />

Be Bold<br />

“[Go for] loud and colorful prints, brown tones, blazers,<br />

bucket hats, and miniskirts,” recommends Lux n Lav Boutique<br />

which carries unisex hats, gifts, as well as a baby line. Hot<br />

items to look for this spring are their blazers ($61-$70) along<br />

with their checkered sweater vest ($48).<br />

Blast from the Past<br />

Throwbacks are back! “Some of the trends we love are the ‘70s<br />

psychedelic prints and marbled prints. We love that the flare<br />

leg has truly made a comeback but the best thing about moving<br />

into spring are the dresses—and we have so many!”<br />

—Apricot Lane Boutique Folsom, 330 Palladio Parkway, Suite 2057,<br />

Feminine Flair<br />

“Feminine and pretty dresses are big this spring ($72-<br />

$96). [You can even pair a] lovely kimono ($70-$119)<br />

to wear with them,” suggests the folks at Ambiance<br />

Boutique. Don’t be afraid to brighten your wardrobe this<br />

season. “Colorful denim also seems to be a fun trend. We<br />

have several beautiful and fun colors ($100+).”<br />

Fashion Fur-ward<br />

Fashion is for everyone—including our furry friends! As we<br />

approach warmer weather, turn to mesh harnesses because<br />

they’re “super lightweight and breathable,” says PR and event<br />

coordinator of Posh Puppy Boutique, Maryssa Sayabath.<br />

“Neon is also a must have for humans and dogs.” For some<br />

extra fun, Posh Puppy Boutique also sells sunglasses for<br />

pets! “Heart sunglasses are a must-have accessory for our<br />

customers. They complete all outfits and add that touch of<br />

attitude,” says Maryssa. However, the true stars of the show<br />

are their tutus ($48-$56). “These are a top seller year-round,<br />

especially during the spring and summer months. They come<br />

in a variety of colors which makes them perfect to dress up<br />

and accessorize depending on the season.”<br />

Fabulous Fabrics<br />

“Cut-outs will be a huge trend this year. Think keyhole, cut-out sides, and open<br />

backs. Other trends include feminine looks, florals, exaggerated sleeves, ruffles,<br />

one-shoulder styles, balloon sleeves, and bows. [Expect] pastels and plenty<br />

of detail,” says Lucy Wheeler, store manager and assistant buyer for Button<br />

Up Boutique. “Fabric [in the form of] pleating, darts, smocking, and ruching;<br />

crochet, knits, eyelet lace, gingham, bold prints, sets (pants and sweaters, or<br />

tanks and shorts), and lots of cropped styles with high-waisted shorts or pants<br />

will be in this year!” She also suggests expanding your color palette. “Some<br />

popular colors this season will be canary yellow, sky blue, fuchsia, caramel, soft<br />

lilac, Kelly green, and orange tones.”<br />

-Button Up Boutique, 330 Palladio Parkway, Suite 2017, Folsom, 916-817-1882; 1182 Roseville<br />

Parkway, Suite 170, Roseville, 916-742-4997; 1000 White Rock Road, Suite 500, El Dorado<br />

Hills, 916-933-6300, buttonupboutique.net, @buttonupboutique @shopbuttonup<br />

Sole Mates<br />

If the shoe fits, buy it! “For shoes, [we suggest] both<br />

the strappy and the platform—more so the platform<br />

as a low wedge,” suggests Tracy Lindenberger, owner<br />

of The Clothes Mine. “Bold is better! So, keep an eye<br />

out for bold color combinations. Our customers will<br />

probably interpret this with one or two bold accents<br />

on an otherwise neutral outfit,” she says. “[Lastly],<br />

add some ‘Flower Power,’ or floral prints in the<br />

form of a cute floral dress, top or handbag.” Tracy<br />

suggests their sandals ($49) and earrings ($8) while<br />

their corkscrew platform sandals ($72) are a “huge<br />

bestseller and are super comfortable!”<br />

and @theclothesmine<br />

Mix and Match<br />

Denim, skirts, and sets—we’ll take all of them! “We’re seeing<br />

colored denim jackets for spring right now,” says Tegan Lee<br />

of Lees’ Boutique. “They can be worn in so many ways. Our<br />

favorite look with a [colored jacket is] a basic white tee and<br />

denim. Another look that’s trending right now is matching<br />

two-piece sets. We have a variety of skirts (short, long, and<br />

mid-length), pants, and shorts with matching tops,” says<br />

Tegan. “You can wear the top high [like] a crop top, or low as<br />

if it’s all one piece. Ultimately, you get the bonus of having two<br />

pieces you can pair with other clothes. Matching sets are all<br />

the rage!” Lee suggests their ruffle skirt set ($59.99).<br />

A: Absinthe was originally developed<br />

as a medicinal liquor that was<br />

given to soldiers in Europe to help<br />

prevent malaria as well as aid with<br />

digestive issues due to that fact that<br />

anise oil (the main component of<br />

absinthe) was generally accepted as<br />

a natural digestive aid at the time,<br />

and continues to be. Traditionally,<br />

absinthe is made of high proof<br />

distilled spirit with anise, fennel and<br />

grande wormwood (the holy trinity<br />

of absinthe). Other ingredients are<br />

used by various distillers to add<br />

additional flavor profiles that make<br />

their absinthe unique. However, the<br />

dominant flavor of absinthe is anise<br />

(black licorice). Largely, absinthe was<br />

the most popular drink from 1850<br />

till the early 1900’s. Because of its<br />

popularity, the Temperance League<br />

lobbied against absinthe due to the<br />

high rate of alcohol related crime<br />

and false claims that it made you<br />

hallucinate or “go crazy” (which it did<br />

not). Absinthe was banned in most<br />

of Europe between 1905 and 1910,<br />

and the United States followed in<br />

1912. Europe reintroduced it around<br />

the 1950’s and the United States<br />

allowed the sale of absinthe in 2007<br />

based on science that the spirit was<br />

no more dangerous than other spirits<br />

currently available at the time.<br />

Catch the Sun<br />

A Guide to Going Solar<br />


Solar power is, simply put, energy converted from<br />

the sun that can be used to power your home.<br />

“T<br />

here has never been a more important time<br />

to go solar,” says Daniel Ramirez, COO of Gold<br />

Rush Energy Solutions in El Dorado Hills<br />

(goldrushenergy.com). “Things are changing fast [so<br />

much so that] PG&E, among others, are trying to<br />

make solar less attractive to future solar customers.<br />

If solar has been a bucket list project for you, now is<br />

the time to check it off your list,” he says.<br />

Rob Kindt, owner of SIG Solar Placerville<br />

(sigplacerville.com), says you should be aware<br />

that some companies are experiencing delays in<br />

equipment because of the global manufacturing and<br />

logistics issues during the pandemic. “Successful<br />

solar companies are planning ahead and ordering<br />

six months to a year’s worth of equipment to<br />

make sure there is always equipment on hand for<br />

installations,” he says.<br />

If you’ve been thinking about adding solar panels<br />

to your home and want to kickstart the process,<br />

read on to learn about the pros, cons, installation<br />

process, and questions to ask before you make the<br />

commitment.<br />

PROS & CONS<br />

Kindt says one downside is the cost. “It can be<br />

expensive. However, there are great financing<br />

options with zero upfront costs to get installed.<br />

There are also amazing tax credits available to help<br />

offset the cost.”<br />

Additionally, some homes have shading that can<br />

make solar not a viable option while other roofs are<br />

difficult or impossible to install solar on. Ground<br />

mounts are an option if the customer has space to<br />

install one, according to Kindt.<br />

48 stylemg.com | MARCH <strong>2022</strong> | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

On the list of pros for going solar, Ramirez<br />

says solar helps people save money on<br />

ever-rising energy costs and yields a great<br />

return on investment. “Solar gives most<br />

people huge tax savings; solar paired<br />

with storage gives homeowners power<br />

during outages and it can add equity to<br />

your home, all while helping reduce your<br />

carbon footprint. What's not to love?” he<br />

asks.<br />

Kindt adds that solar gives homeowners a<br />

great alternative to traditional grid power.<br />

“It offers a green, renewable resource for<br />

electricity and more grid independence.<br />

This is especially true when battery<br />

storage is included in the system. Solar<br />

can also save homeowners hundreds of<br />

dollars a month on their electrical bills<br />

by typically reducing PG&E utility bills to<br />

zero,” he says.<br />


Costs vary depending on the total electric<br />

consumption needs and complexity of<br />

the home, says Ramirez. “Many zero-down<br />

financing options allow homeowners<br />

to switch to solar with no upfront costs.<br />

The best way to determine your costs is<br />

to get a customized quote,” he says, while<br />

stressing the cost benefits. “When solar<br />

is sized to meet 100-110 percent of your<br />

electricity needs, the energy produced<br />

from the panels eliminates your normal<br />

electric bill. Right now, there is a federal<br />

tax credit of 26 percent of the total system<br />

cost.” Kindt adds that they treat each<br />

home on a case-by-case basis to figure out<br />

system costs. “In general, solar is about<br />

50 percent cheaper than what a home<br />

spends per month with PG&E,” he says.<br />

The average homeowner purchase is<br />

around $30,000 before federal tax credit<br />

and incentives, according to Meghan<br />

Stimmler, sales director at Solar Hut, LLC<br />

in Diamond Springs (solarhut.org). “When<br />

you consider the long-term economics<br />

of solar power, it is clear that they are a<br />

better option in the end. Solar panels are<br />

an investment,” she states.<br />


The entire solar process typically takes<br />

about 45 days to complete, according<br />

to Ramirez. “We take care of everything<br />

from financing, design, permitting,<br />

istallation, inspection, and utility<br />

interconnection. Actual installations can<br />

range from 1-5 days depending on the<br />

complexities of the project.”<br />

Stimmler shares this detailed overview of<br />

the installation process and timeframes.<br />

1. Site assessment and design (1-4 weeks)<br />

“This step begins with an initial site<br />

inspection, where your contractor<br />

will visit your home to get a better<br />

understanding of your needs. They will<br />

then design your solar panel system<br />

based on your home’s unique attributes. If<br />

necessary, most contractors can also work<br />

with you to address any issues that might<br />

hinder panel installation, like pruning<br />

nearby trees or making roofing repairs.”<br />

2. Permitting (2-8 weeks)<br />

“Your solar panel designs must now be<br />

submitted to your local government for<br />

permitting. The process for approval<br />

varies from region to region; but your<br />

contractor should work closely with<br />

you during permitting and will likely be<br />

very knowledgeable about your area’s<br />

permitting process.”<br />

3. Solar panel installation (1-7 days)<br />

“After receiving approval, your solar<br />

contractor can begin work. This includes<br />

ordering your solar panels as well as<br />

making sure your roof is structurally<br />

sound and free of obstructions. On the<br />

big day, an installation crew will install the<br />

proper wiring and mounting equipment,<br />

and place and connect the solar panels.<br />

Depending on the size of the solar panel<br />

system being installed, this process can<br />

sometimes be done within a day.”<br />

4. Inspection and utility permission to<br />

operate (2-6 weeks)<br />

“A final inspection by your local<br />

government and/or municipal utility must<br />

occur before your new solar array can<br />

officially be turned on. An inspector will<br />

visit your home to ensure that your solar<br />

panel system is properly installed. They<br />

may also install a net meter which tracks<br />

production and allows your home to send<br />

excess power back to the electrical grid.”<br />

5. Activation<br />

“Once you receive final approval, you can<br />

immediately flip the switch and begin<br />

harvesting solar energy for your home!”<br />


The three experts shared the following<br />

questions homeowners should ask before<br />

going solar, noting that they should always<br />

discuss their long-term solar goals. Kindt<br />

says a good installer can recommend the<br />

proper system and equipment to make<br />

sure those goals are met.<br />

• Will there be subcontractors involved?<br />

Or is any part of this project outsourced<br />

to a third party?<br />

• What equipment and warranties are we<br />

getting? What is the warranty on the<br />

panels, inverters, and batteries? Does<br />

the warranty cover the roof mounting<br />

brackets?<br />

• How can I be sure the system is sized<br />

properly?<br />

• What is the install/labor warranty?<br />

• How are the aesthetics going to look?<br />

• What is my solar offset with this size<br />

system?<br />

• Is this owned, leased, or a PPA?<br />

• If financed, what are the loan terms?<br />

• Does the monthly payment ever change?<br />

• What is your contractor's license number?<br />

• What is your HIS number?<br />

• Is your company listed with the better<br />

business bureau?<br />

Nixtaco serves up authentic Northeast-Mexican cuisine and was even<br />

up a notable brunch. Try out their Chilaquiles Verde with Chicharrón:<br />

Fried corn tortillas (made in-house) are topped with pork belly, salsa verde,<br />

crema Mexicana, pickled onions, avocado, and micro cilantro. This dish alone<br />

deserves an award!<br />

When it comes to Mexican cuisine, the question is often “red<br />

or green?” That problem is solved with Huevos Divorciados<br />

(Divorced Eggs) at Mexquite. Featuring two over-medium<br />

eggs—one topped with house red sauce, and queso fresco,<br />

and the other topped with green tomatillo salsa, cilantro,<br />

and onions—it’s up to you to decide which one is best. We<br />

think you’ll be pleased with both—especially when paired with<br />

a boozy beverage. Try the Los Altos Paloma: Meastro Dobel<br />

Silver Tequila, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, Squirt, a squeeze<br />

of fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt.<br />

Buttercup Pantry offers country-style comfort food that never goes out of style.<br />

You can’t go wrong with their Buttercup benedicts, skillet scrambles and omelets, or<br />

even their pancakes and waffles. They’ve even got a smörgåsbord of sandwiches—a<br />

long-standing favorite being the magnificent Monte Cristo: Thick, sliced sourdough<br />

packed with Jack cheese, ham, and turkey, then egg battered and grilled, is finished off<br />

with powdered sugar. And the pièce de résistance? Their famous raspberry habanero<br />

sauce to bathe that sinful sandwich in.<br />

222 Main Street, Placerville, 530-621-1320<br />

Waffle lovers have lots to relish at<br />

The Waffle Experience. Their<br />

fresh-made waffles are the perfect<br />

vessel for a multitude of creative<br />

pork belly, country fried steak, and<br />

lots more. There are even some<br />

seriously sweet dessert waffles.<br />

Our favorite is the Bananarama<br />

with its fresh bananas, housemade<br />

vanilla pudding, fresh<br />

whipped crème, walnuts, and agave<br />

syrup, on a liege waffle. Dessert for<br />

They’ve got all the breakfast staples<br />

(scrambles, omelets, burritos)<br />

junkie’s delight. Featuring gourmet<br />

pizzas, pastas, salads, and more,<br />

they’re constantly keeping spirits up<br />

with their fun and tasty offerings.<br />

Attend their weekend brunch (9 a.m.-<br />

2 p.m.) for an equally fun assortment<br />

of waffles, eggs, and sandwiches.<br />

Most crave-worthy, though, is their<br />

Breakfast Pizza: A promising pie<br />

of house-made salsa verde, aged<br />

lunguiça, a signature four-cheese<br />

blend, red onions, roma tomatoes,<br />

three baked eggs, avocado, and fresh<br />

CT European Café and Grill cooks up some<br />

deadly European dishes. Take for instance, the<br />

Bosnian dish Ćevapčići that consists of skinless<br />

sausage links made with a lightly seasoned<br />

ground beef served with fresh Bosnian lepina<br />

(pita) bread, or the more common plates of<br />

goulash, schnitzel, and paprikash. Whatever you<br />

order, you can’t go wrong. Even their crêpes are<br />

stellar (Chicken Rosemary Crêpe, anyone?)<br />

with savory and sweet options alike. (We’re<br />

eyeing you Crêpe Suzette, with your orange<br />

liqueur sauce and whipped cream!)<br />

Their vegetarian, chicken Florentine, and<br />

Seafood Crêpes are highly coveted, but their<br />

seafood one gets our extra vote. Salmon,<br />

cod, and shrimp are served in the finest of<br />

crêpes and topped with an elegant cream<br />

sauce that’ll leave you intoxicated and in love.<br />

Gallstones? Recognize The Signs<br />

The gallbladder is an organ we seldom<br />

hear about–until it has to come out.<br />

It’s a small organ located under the<br />

liver, helping with fat digestion. If the<br />

bile ducts or tubes leading out of the<br />

gallbladder get blocked or infected,<br />

you may develop gallstones, which are hard deposits<br />

that can cause severe pain.<br />

Gallstones do not cause any symptoms aside from<br />

pain that you would notice, but they can lead to inflammation<br />

or block a critical duct for organ function. Some symptoms you<br />

may experience include abdominal pain, indigestion, nausea<br />

and vomiting, fever, changes in urine or bowels, and in some<br />

cases even chest pain or jaundice (yellowing of the skin and<br />

the whites of the eyes).<br />

If you experience these symptoms, talk to your doctor about<br />

gallbladder removal surgery. The gallbladder is an organ you<br />

can live without and, most times, removal is a simple outpatient<br />

procedure. Traditional laparoscopic surgery to remove the<br />

gallbladder requires four small incisions.<br />

However, with the da Vinci robotic surgery system, one small<br />

incision is all it takes and there is virtually no scarring. Singlesite<br />

gallbladder surgery also means minimal pain. Marshall<br />

Medical Center Surgeon Leighton Belden, MD, explains, “using<br />

da Vinci, you can see the ducts more clearly, which leads to<br />

fewer complications. The wristed motion using the surgical<br />

robot provides a better angle so patients experience less pain<br />

and a faster recovery.”<br />

Talk to your doctor about what you’re experiencing and if<br />

robotic-assisted surgery at Marshall Medical Center is right<br />

for you.<br />


Strength<br />

Training<br />

Is Good<br />

for Your<br />

Heart<br />

Lifting weights does more than build<br />

strong bones. Strength training can<br />

also contribute to heart health by<br />

building lean muscle mass, which<br />

helps to burn extra calories, keep<br />

blood sugar in check, and improve<br />

cholesterol levels.<br />

Strength training, especially for older<br />

adults, can also make it easier to<br />

perform everyday activities such as<br />

lifting a bag of groceries.<br />

“Building lean muscle mass is very<br />

important to cardiac health. That’s<br />

why we don’t just measure body<br />

mass index (BMI), we also measure<br />

body fat percentage and muscle mass<br />

because muscle is more dense than<br />

fat,” explains Scott Vasconcellos, MD,<br />

cardiologist at Marshall. “I recommend<br />

10 minutes of strength training for<br />

every 30 minutes of aerobic exercise.”<br />

If gyms are intimidating for you, or you<br />

would simply prefer to work out at home,<br />

the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and<br />

Prevention (CDC) suggests trying some<br />

of the following activities for strength<br />

training. You can find lots of helpful<br />

videos online to help you get started:<br />

• Working with resistance bands, weight<br />

machines or hand-held weights<br />

• Doing push ups, sit ups and other body<br />

weight resistance exercises<br />

• Heavy gardening (digging, lifting and<br />

carrying)<br />

• Yoga or Pilates<br />

• Tai Chi<br />

Be careful not to over do it. The American<br />

Heart Association recommends<br />

performing 8 to 10 resistance exercises<br />

two days a week. Look for exercises<br />

that use multiple major muscle groups<br />

– legs, hips, back, chest, abdomen,<br />

shoulders, and arms. And try to do each<br />

exercise to the point of muscle fatigue.<br />

Avoid overtraining, however, and stop<br />

immediately if you feel any pain.<br />

Better Cancer<br />

Care Comes to<br />

El Dorado County<br />

As an ICU nurse, Nancy Getz was focused<br />

on healing very sick patients she saw<br />

at work every day. Health care was her<br />

business. Then she found a lump and<br />

everything changed.<br />

Last February, Nancy received her<br />

COVID-19 vaccine and later found a lump near her underarm.<br />

“I just assumed it was a side effect from the vaccine. I knew<br />

a few people who had experienced this but I went to see my<br />

doctor anyway,” says Nancy. Her doctor sent her to get a<br />

mammogram. Just 18 months after a negative mammogram,<br />

this one came back positive for two lumps: the one Nancy<br />

found and a larger one in her breast. A biopsy confirmed they<br />

were malignant and she was diagnosed with aggressive triple<br />

positive breast cancer.<br />

While no one is happy about a cancer diagnosis, Nancy<br />

was pleased to know that this type of cancer could be<br />

treated at the Marshall Cancer Center in Cameron Park. “It’s<br />

Davis Cancer Care Network.<br />

Marshall Medical<br />

Center and UC Davis<br />

Health recently<br />

announced an affiliation<br />

for cancer services<br />

that allows Marshall<br />

patients access to the<br />

renowned UC Davis<br />

Comprehensive Cancer<br />

Center through the UC<br />

The affiliation will offer Marshall patients leading-edge<br />

cancer care without leaving the western slope of El<br />

Dorado County.<br />

The latest cancer clinical trials, and access to UC Davis<br />

Comprehensive Cancer Center oncologists ensure the<br />

latest diagnostic and treatment options.<br />

For more information, visit marshallmedical.org/cancer

Davis has everything. My next thought was that now<br />

Marshall patients will be able to participate in the<br />

latest clinical trials. That could mean the difference<br />

between life and death.”<br />

Placerville’s Mary Beth Fahy also received a<br />

breast cancer diagnosis last year. Hers was found<br />

early thanks to Marshall’s recently acquired 3D<br />

mammographic system. “It had been a couple of<br />

years since my last mammogram, so I curiously<br />

asked my oncologist if the tumor would have shown<br />

last year. She told me that it might not even have<br />

been visible even this year had it not been for the<br />

3D machine.”<br />

Mary Beth was similarly pleased to hear the<br />

announcement about the affiliation with UC Davis<br />

Health. Her husband suffered from a brain tumor<br />

a few years ago and required treatment at a<br />

Sacramento hospital. “It was so inconvenient,” she<br />

exclaimed. “ It felt like a big impersonal machine.”<br />

Dr. Mamatha Siricilla, a Marshall hematologist and<br />

oncologist, offers that in addition to access to<br />

clinical trials, treatment will be more streamlined if<br />

a patient has cancer that requires a sub specialty.<br />

“Those patients will be seen by a UC Davis<br />

specialist in a more timely manner since we won’t<br />

have to transfer the patient between systems, and<br />

they can undergo their radiation, chemotherapy,<br />

and other infusions in Cameron Park,” she<br />

explained.<br />

Mary Beth Fahy<br />

only 11 minutes from my home. I was relieved to not have to<br />

deal with an hour’s drive to Sacramento while feeling ill and<br />

uneasy.” Her course of treatment began with chemotherapy<br />

at Marshall’s infusion center, followed by a lumpectomy and<br />

concluding with six weeks of radiation. All of this took place<br />

in Cameron Park, except for the surgery. “I love going to<br />

the Cancer Center for my appointments,” explains Nancy.<br />

“It feels like they are invested in my care, they greet me by<br />

name, and I feel so bonded with my doctors and nurses. It’s<br />

like being cared for by my own family.”<br />

Recently, Nancy learned that Marshall and UC Davis Health<br />

announced an affiliation for cancer services, giving Marshall<br />

patients access to the renowned UC Davis Comprehensive<br />

Cancer Center. “My first thought was that this is great! UC<br />

Affiliation with the UC Davis Cancer Care Network<br />

allows Marshall oncologists to work directly<br />

with UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center<br />

oncologists to ensure the latest diagnostic and<br />

treatment options are available to their patients.<br />

Marshall’s providers and clinicians will have access<br />

to continuing medical education opportunities at<br />

UC Davis Health. UC Davis oncologists will also be<br />

involved in the tumor board meetings for Marshall<br />

patients, where diagnoses and treatment plans are<br />

discussed and knowledge is shared.<br />

“Our cancer center is an amazing community<br />

resource for people going through the cancer<br />

journey,” says Nancy. “And now the advanced<br />

level of care, together with that special family<br />

atmosphere, gives Marshall cancer patients the<br />

best of both worlds.”<br />

Marshall Earns<br />

Top Hospital Award<br />

Highlighting<br />

its nationally<br />

recognized<br />

achievements in<br />

patient safety and<br />

quality, Marshall Medical Center<br />

was named a Top General Hospital<br />

nationally by The Leapfrog Group.<br />

The Leapfrog Top Hospital award is<br />

widely acknowledged as one of the<br />

most competitive awards American<br />

hospitals can receive. The Top<br />

Hospital designation is bestowed<br />

by The Leapfrog Group, a national<br />

watchdog organization of employers<br />

and other purchasers recognized<br />

as the toughest standard-setters for<br />

healthcare safety and quality.<br />

“In the past year Marshall has<br />

encouraged staff and providers to<br />

identify and report more safety risks<br />

prior to an incident occurring using<br />

the online Marshall Patient Safety<br />

Alert system and leadership follow<br />

ups to improve safety processes<br />

before an issue arises,” says Cindy<br />

Rice, RN, Chief Nursing Officer. “We<br />

also look for trends in safety issues<br />

during daily nursing huddles and<br />

formed a Quest for Zero committee<br />

which focuses on patient safety,<br />

including the prevention of patient<br />

falls and hospital acquired pressure<br />

injuries.”<br />

The quality of patient care across<br />

many areas of hospital performance<br />

is considered in establishing<br />

the qualifications for the award,<br />

including infection rates, surgery,<br />

maternity care, and the hospital’s<br />

capacity to prevent medication and<br />

other errors. The rigorous standards<br />

are defined in each year’s Top<br />

Hospital Methodology.<br />

We are pleased to recognize<br />

Marshall as a Top Hospital this<br />

year,” said Leah Binder, president<br />

and CEO of The Leapfrog Group.<br />

“Even with the continued strain of<br />

the COVID-19 pandemic, Marshall<br />

has demonstrated an extraordinary<br />

dedication to excellent health<br />

care in El Dorado County. We<br />

congratulate the board, leadership,<br />

staff and clinicians who put their<br />

patients first.”<br />

To qualify for the Top Hospitals<br />

distinction, hospitals must rank<br />

top among peers on the Leapfrog<br />

Hospital Survey, which assesses<br />

hospital performance on the<br />

highest standards for quality and<br />

patient safety. To see the full list of<br />

institutions honored as 2021 Top<br />

Hospitals, visit www.leapfroggroup.<br />

org/tophospitals.<br />

In addition, Leapfrog recently<br />

released Hospital Safety Grades for<br />

nearly 3,000 hospitals nationwide,<br />

giving Marshall an “A.” This<br />

grade is based on how well we<br />

prevent medical errors, accidents,<br />

injuries, and infections that kill<br />

or harm patients and reflects our<br />

performance on more than 30<br />

evidence-based measures of patient<br />

safety, including postoperative<br />

sepsis, blood leakage, and kidney<br />

injury.<br />

Choosing Health Through<br />

Weight Loss Surgery<br />


For the first time in<br />

many years, Michelle<br />

Soto is looking<br />

forward to wearing<br />

spring and summer<br />

clothes. The difference<br />

this year? She’s lost<br />

almost 80 pounds.<br />

For most of her life, Michelle was thin<br />

and fit but once she had her first of three<br />

daughters, she noticed the weight getting<br />

harder and harder to shed. She decided<br />

she needed medical assistance to lose the<br />

175 pounds she’d gained over the years.<br />

She started with Marshall Medical Center’s<br />

team of registered dietitians.<br />

After trying multiple regimens, Michelle<br />

was unable to lose weight on her own. She<br />

even stumped her nutritionist by managing<br />

to gain weight on an all-broth diet. It was then<br />

she decided it was time to look into bariatric<br />

surgery.<br />

Michelle has always had a fear of medical procedures, but<br />

she knew she had to try to overcome that in order to get the<br />

help she needed. “I knew the only option was surgery but I<br />

was very nervous about it,” she says.<br />

She recounts her first meeting with Dr. Ryan Lussenden,<br />

Marshall’s bariatric surgeon: “I don’t know if it was his voice<br />

or his confidence but I just felt comfortable immediately.<br />

After the initial conversation, I was ready to go. I told him I<br />

was ready to have my surgery tomorrow.”<br />

Dr. Lussenden’s advice for those considering the surgery<br />

includes doing your research. “Talk to friends and family.<br />

Reach out to people who have had the surgery. Be<br />

prepared for three to six months of preparation before<br />

surgery and be aware that it’s a lifetime of changing<br />

behaviors. It’s not over once the surgery is complete.”<br />

In the months before surgery, Michelle took nutrition<br />

classes, followed by the bariatric surgery classes. As<br />

part of the program, she also started seeing Marshall<br />

psychiatrist, Dr. Maisha Correia.<br />

On the day of the surgery, Michelle was feeling anxious.<br />

She was comforted by a medical assistant who came in<br />

and held her hand until she went under anesthesia. “I<br />

understand these are medical professionals and they need<br />

to handle their business. But they all really do treat you like<br />

family. It was really comforting for me to have that support,”<br />

shared Michelle.<br />

Michelle followed the strict instructions when she returned<br />

home from the hospital. “Patients are usually in the hospital<br />

for two nights,” explained Dr. Lussenden. “They typically<br />

experience pain for two to three days following surgery<br />

and we recommend they take two to three weeks off work<br />

to recover.” Adding, “because the procedure is done with<br />

the assistance of a surgical robot, the recovery process is<br />

usually short and smooth.”<br />

In the months after surgery, Michelle has found new<br />

energy and has become known in her support group as<br />

“the workout queen,” hitting the gym six days a week. She<br />

abides by all the guidelines to maximize her results. She’s<br />

also working with Dr. Tarandeep Kaur, of Marshall Family<br />

Medicine in El Dorado Hills, who specializes in medical<br />

weight loss, to monitor her ongoing progress.<br />

Seven months after surgery, Michelle has lost nearly 80<br />

pounds. “The most dramatic weight loss will be in the first<br />

nine months after surgery and many patients will see a<br />

plateau around 18 months,” explains Dr. Lussenden.<br />

With the support of her doctors, Michelle found optimism<br />

and a focus on health. She reminds everyone who is<br />

considering taking this drastic step, “You’re a beautiful<br />

person, no matter what the scale says. This program isn’t<br />

just about weight loss, it’s about a healthier you.”<br />

Meatballs with Polenta<br />

Tucked away in a quiet Roseville neighborhood is a hidden<br />

gem for beer, craft cocktails, and pizza lovers alike. While<br />

Kitchen 747 might be off the beaten path, the charm of the<br />

modern brewery-inspired watering hole has created a real<br />

buzz.<br />

The restaurant was packed with lines of people as we<br />

checked in and sat at the bar. With over 30 beers on tap, an impressive<br />

wine selection, and plenty of craft cocktails, you won’t go thirsty here.

There’s even a large selection of delicious<br />

and tons of pungent garlic that was easily<br />

enough for four people to share. Although<br />

the fries were nothing to complain about,<br />

the steaming meatballs on polenta at the<br />

next table gave us a tremendous sense<br />

of FOMO—and a good enough reason to<br />

possibly make the trek out here again.<br />

Our server, Nicole, who was excited to<br />

talk about Kitchen 747, recommended the<br />

Garlicky Steak sandwich: a thinly sliced<br />

ribeye-stuffed sandwich with provolone,<br />

garlic butter, and a delicious au jus on the<br />

side. At first bite, it was no wonder that<br />

this was already the top seller at the newlyestablished<br />

restaurant.<br />

To balance out our garlic-inspired<br />

choices, we ordered the Chilton combo.<br />

This specialty pizza came stacked with<br />

mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage, red onions,<br />

bell peppers, jalapeños, and mushrooms<br />

atop their savory house red sauce.<br />

As we enjoyed our meal, Nicole talked<br />

us through a bit of the facility that’s fully<br />

equipped to host some epic events. The<br />

rooftop bar overlooks the main patio<br />

where you can play corn hole and enjoy<br />

one of several cozy fire pits. There’s even<br />

room for shuffleboard and ping pong.<br />

All in all, there’s enough space<br />

to comfortably host up to 170<br />

people.<br />

The space itself is enormous<br />

and there wasn’t an empty table<br />

in sight. The noisy crowd may<br />

not make this the best spot for<br />

a quiet date night but it does<br />

check all the boxes for a casual<br />

night out or a fun meetup with<br />

friends.<br />

Overall, while the food was<br />

not groundbreaking, it was<br />

exactly what you wanted it to be.<br />

The portions were enough to<br />

last for two meals (and was just<br />

as delicious later!), the pizza was<br />

on par with any craft pizzeria,<br />

the sandwich was one of the<br />

better ones we’ve had recently,<br />

Oh Nash + Tender, you had me at Hot Chicken & Waffle. My mouth is watering<br />

just as I write this. Close your eyes as I describe this divine dish. Wait, that’s<br />

not possible since you’re reading. So, keep reading and picture a hot, crisp<br />

waffle cut into four pieces. Can you smell the fresh, buttery waffle? Next to<br />

that, picture a crisp, juicy chicken tender. Here’s the cool thing: You choose the<br />

heat (spice) level of your chicken. If you’re like me, you can take your chicken<br />

“mild.” If you’re like my husband, you can take it “hot.” And if you’re really into<br />

heat, you can go with “XTRA HOT—Call the Firefighter” or “STUPID HOT—<br />

WTF.” (That last one requires a waiver and you must eat it in the restaurant.)<br />

Alongside the dish is tasty coleslaw, sweet syrup, and a house-made special<br />

sauce. Their menu has a variety of chicken dishes including a Hot Chicken<br />

Slider, Hot Tender Salad, Nash + Tender Fries, and a Waffle Sandwich. That last<br />

sandwich consists of a waffle crust, chicken tender, mac n’ cheese, coleslaw,<br />

pickles, and of course, that amazing special sauce. And they’ve got a secret<br />

menu, too, which includes the Nashrito: A breakfast burrito filled with<br />

chicken (duh), coleslaw, mac ’n’ cheese, eggs, fries, and special sauce. Nash +<br />

Tender says they’re bringing Nashville hot chicken to Folsom and there’s no<br />

clucks about it! — by JULIE RYAN<br />

Jarunee Fleming<br />

Co-Owner & Head Chef<br />

Thai Paradise serves healthy, delicious and<br />

authentic Thai food and has been voted<br />

#1 BEST THAI RESTAURANT for the past 13<br />

years. They were also voted as #1 BEST TAKE-OUT.<br />

Their two restaurants in Folsom & El Dorado Hills<br />

are open for indoor and patio dining with easy<br />

online ordering for delivery and take-out. Delivery<br />

is available by Doordash, UberEats, GrubHub and<br />

Snaptown.<br />

What makes Thai Paradise food so healthy is that<br />

they cook with healthy and expensive rice bran oil<br />

like they do in Thailand. They also use local farmto-fork<br />

ingredients plus fresh vegetables and meats<br />

purchased daily. Many of their healthy and delicious<br />

dishes like Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Papaya Salad, Spring<br />

Rolls, and Red Green & Yellow Curries, are Thai foods<br />

on the list of foods that are recommended by many<br />

Registered Dieticians.<br />

Jarunee Fleming, Co-Owner and Head Chef says:<br />

“I make my food to make people happy.”<br />

Q’s birthday, which<br />

is December 27. Q1227, is a chef driven<br />

restaurant in the beautiful city of<br />

Roseville, CA. Our menu inspiration pulls<br />

from Chef’s love of the ‘farm to fork’<br />

Nevada Foothills and decided to put down<br />

roots in Apple Hill. Here, they discovered<br />

the exceptional volcanic soils weathered<br />

from volcanic ash, and Lava Cap Winery<br />

was born. For over 35 years our family has<br />

Loking for great Mexican cuisine in Folsom? There is a<br />

reason Mexquite has been named the region’s #1 Mexican<br />

restaurant for 15 years in a row – it’s the food!<br />

Offering a vast menu of traditional dishes, Mexquite’s light<br />

shines brightest with their Sinaloa regional specialties such as<br />

Huachinango, a dish featuring shrimp and red snapper saute’ed<br />

with mushrooms, jalapenos, onions and tomato sauce. Also not<br />

to be missed are the chicken mole’ enchiladas. A close friend<br />

happens to be a bit of a mole’ connoisseur and tells me that<br />

Mexquite really gets it right!<br />

Offering Happy Hour Monday through Friday, and a great<br />

weekend breakfast menu (try the Chilaquiles Poblanos!). The<br />

atmosphere is always lively and the beautiful outdoor patio is a<br />

great place to unwind after the long workday.<br />

Upon being seated you are greeted to a basket of chips and<br />

salsa. The only way to describe this salsa would to call it<br />

addicting – made fresh daily, Mexquite salsa, like all the dishes,<br />

make the perfect To-Go item for parties, football watching or<br />

anytime you feel like eating award winning Mexican fare.<br />

Last but certainly not least – The margaritas are made with<br />

agave, lime juice and tequila – all natural and arguably, the best<br />

in town!<br />

Come see for yourself why Mexquite is voted the best of the best,<br />

Whether you’re<br />

proudly Irish or are<br />

simply looking for<br />

some amazing bites<br />

and booze, these<br />

offerings are sure<br />

to get you into the<br />

Paddy’s Day spirit.<br />

Fans of the Moscow mule<br />

will enjoy this fun twist on<br />

a classic drink at Bar 101<br />

Irish whiskey and lime meet<br />

Bundaberg ginger beer in<br />

this spirited cocktail. The<br />

ginger beer is a welcome<br />

hit of sweetness and a nice<br />

accompaniment to the spicy,<br />

nutty Jameson. Oh, and it’s<br />

served in a copper mug just as<br />

you’d hoped for. Cheers!<br />

STYLE <strong>Magazine</strong> Blackthorn<br />

This take on an Irish Blackthorn is for our readers to make<br />

in the comfort of their own homes! Grab a shaker with<br />

ice and add an ounce of Wheel House Absinthe Verte from<br />

Gold River Distillery along with two ounces of any<br />

Irish whiskey you like. Then, add two dashes of Angostura<br />

Bitters (available at any liquor store), a quarter-ounce of<br />

dry vermouth, and shake. Strain into a glass with ice or a<br />

champagne flute—depending on how fancy you’re feeling!<br />

Tasting notes of black licorice, earthy olives, and malty<br />

sweet oak with a smooth, warm finish await you.<br />

Fish and Chips<br />

Although corned beef is a St. Patrick’s Day must-have, fish and<br />

chips also have a seat at the feasting table. The Independent<br />

Restaurant and Bar offers juicy, flaky pieces of cod which<br />

are breaded in a tempura batter that’s made better with hard<br />

cider. House-made slaw and a creamy garlic remoulade are served<br />

alongside the hot and crispy fish. You’ll also get your choice of<br />

“chips” i.e. potato fries or turnip fries to round out the dish.<br />

Irish Coffee<br />

Warm up instantly with<br />

this quintessential Irish<br />

drink at C. Knight’s<br />

Steakhouse that starts<br />

with a special Louis the XIV<br />

Goldminer Reuben<br />

Corned beef that’s smoked in-house with hickory chips is<br />

the real star of the show at 36 Handles Public House.<br />

The succulent meat is sliced thin and topped with your<br />

choice of Swiss or provolone cheese, sauerkraut, plus<br />

a creamy Russian dressing. It’s all piled high on grilled<br />

marble rye and comes with your choice of salad or housecut<br />

fries. If you work up a thirst, a blonde wheat or amber<br />

ale will create a perfect pairing with your sandwich.<br />

French Roast from nearby<br />

off with freshly whipped<br />

THE<br />

Hot<br />

LIST<br />

Adult Beer Float<br />

When you can’t decide between a nice, frosty<br />

beer and a deliciously creamy dessert, have<br />

the best of both worlds with an adult beer<br />

float from Wally’s Pizza Bar. Belching<br />

Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Nitro Stout is<br />

poured over two scoops of vanilla bean ice<br />

cream. An extra delicious dose of sweetness is<br />

added to the top with caramel and chocolate<br />

drizzles, whipped cream, and cinnamon sugar<br />

buñuelos (thin fried dough fritters).<br />

Irish Reuben Fries<br />

Fancy the taste of a Reuben but have a serious hankering<br />

for fries? The offering at The Boxing Donkey is the<br />

perfect marriage between the two. House-made corned beef<br />

is enhanced by Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand<br />

Island dressing, and sits atop a generous bed of French<br />

fries. Tater tots can be used in place of fries or you can<br />

even make them “Irish nachos” by subbing in kettle chips.<br />

300 Lincoln Street, Roseville, 916-797-3665, theboxingdonkey.com<br />

Cottage Pie<br />

This comforting dish is similar to<br />

shepherd’s pie, but is made with beef<br />

instead of lamb. Familiar players such as<br />

thyme, rosemary, peas, carrots, onions,<br />

Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste<br />

make up the base, but The Monk’s<br />

Cellar sets their recipe apart with a secret<br />

weapon: corned beef au jus that’s made<br />

in-house. The merry mixture gets topped<br />

with fluffy, whipped potatoes and hits<br />

the broiler so that everything is nice and<br />

golden brown before arriving at your table.<br />

O’Malley’s Dark<br />

Irish Red Ale<br />

Ireland has a long history of<br />

producing rich, robust ales<br />

and this one by DarkHeart<br />

Brewing offers quite<br />

the homage. Described<br />

as “dark, beautiful, and a<br />

bit dangerous,” the ale is<br />

produced in honor of the<br />

legendary Irish “pirate queen”<br />

Grace O’Malley. This easy<br />

sipper has a bit of a dry<br />

finish with notes of biscuit<br />

and toasty toffee throughout.<br />

Channel O’Malley’s fierce and<br />

fearless nature with a round<br />

of this 5.5% ABV ale.<br />

Where We Live<br />

LILY<br />


1<br />

Lilies have the longest in-vase<br />

lifespan of any cut bloom. Discard<br />

the pollen from their centers for<br />

an even longer lifespan.<br />

2<br />

There are over 100 different<br />

species of lilies, coming in all<br />

different shapes, sizes, and colors.<br />

3<br />

When planted, they can develop<br />

from a bulb or a seed and best<br />

grow in groups of three to five.<br />

4<br />

Lilies have been historically grown,<br />

not just for their beauty, but for<br />

medicinal purposes and food.<br />

They are non-toxic to humans but<br />

incredibly toxic to pets.<br />

5<br />

These well-loved flowers are found<br />

around the globe, from Canada to<br />

Japan, and are one of the most<br />

prevalent flowers in Europe.<br />

“The beautiful spring came, and when nature<br />

resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt<br />

to revive also.”—Harriet Ann Jacobs<br />
