Style Magazine - May 2022

Starting the month off with a mighty bang is Cinco de Mayo that commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French Empire (and is NOT their Independence Day which is celebrated September 16). We love a good party and never pass up the chance to have one. So, with that as inspiration, we bring you this month’s “30+ Local Latin American Restaurants To Try!” feature (page 85) that’s full of intoxicating eats that will guarantee a fiesta (definitely followed by a siesta!). While researching this article, we came across many other South American restaurants that warranted mention, thus expanding the feature to include Salvadoran, Brazilian, and other cuisines that will knock your socks off. Another holiday we can’t wait to celebrate this month is Mother’s Day (May 8). We all have our own ways of showing affection and appreciation towards our moms (or mother figures) on Mother’s Day, but as a magazine, we’ve come to love our “Get to Know” article each May that profiles some of the most magnificent mothers to grace our neighborhoods. Not a single one of them fails to inspire and warm our hearts, and this year’s “Mighty Moms” piece (page 16) is no less. If it weren’t already apparent, we’ve got so much good content on the following pages. So, grab a margarita (or any of the coffees in our “Hot List” department on page 102—if that’s more your thing), grab the family (including mom!), and make the most of May. Cheers and happy everything! —Tara Mendanha tara@stylemg.com

Don’t know about you but

we’re feeling very festive

this month. There’s so

much exciting stuff to

look forward to that it’s

almost giddying!

Starting the month

off with a mighty bang is Cinco de Mayo

that commemorates the anniversary

of Mexico’s victory over the French

Empire (and is NOT their Independence

Day which is celebrated September 16).

We love a good party and never pass

up the chance to have one. So, with

that as inspiration, we bring you this

month’s “30+ Local Latin American

Restaurants To Try!” feature (page 85)

that’s full of intoxicating eats that will

guarantee a fiesta (definitely followed

by a siesta!). While researching this article, we came across many other South

American restaurants that warranted mention, thus expanding the feature to include

Salvadoran, Brazilian, and other cuisines that will knock your socks off.

Another holiday we can’t wait to celebrate this month is Mother’s Day (May 8). We

all have our own ways of showing affection and appreciation towards our moms

(or mother figures) on Mother’s Day, but as a magazine, we’ve come to love our “Get

to Know” article each May that profiles some of the most magnificent mothers to

grace our neighborhoods. Not a single one of them fails

to inspire and warm our hearts, and this year’s “Mighty

“There’s no Moms” piece (page 16) is no less.

Aside from all the celebrations, we’ve also got

way to be

some other interesting reads for you. Check out Emily

a perfect Peter-Corey’s cool “Arts and Culture” piece on local

woodworkers (page 30), along with some more sobering

mother and

reads like the one on Water Safety (page 42) and Foster

a million Care and Adoption Agencies (page 26).

If you’re planning to live outside this month—given

ways to

the good weather and all—might we suggest a bit of

be a good a backyard revamp? Look into this month’s “Home

and Garden” department (page 78) for ways to get your


backyard summer- and fun-ready. Then check out our

—Jill Churchill Calendar of Events (page 34) for all the ways to enjoy the

outdoors and the community.

If it weren’t already apparent, we’ve got so much good

content on the following pages. So, grab a margarita (or any of the coffees in our “Hot

List” department on page 102—if that’s more your thing), grab the family (including

mom!), and make the most of May. Cheers and happy everything!

What’s the

best piece

of advice

you’ve ever


“The best advice was from my mum:

Don’t skimp on furniture, curtains

or saucepans. Get good quality and

they’ll last forever.”

—Sharon Penny

“Live on less than what you make.”

—Taylor Gillespie

“This is a piece of self-care and

relationship advice: When you become

the person you want to attract, you will

know and attract the person you want

to be with.”—Gary Zsigo

“Don’t assume!”—Julie Ryan

“This is the best advice I’ve received

and lived by: One day at a time is all we

should be dealing with. We can’t go

back to yesterday and we can’t control

tomorrow, so live for today.”

—JoAnn DeLise

“One of my favorite books is The Four

Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. ‘Be

impeccable with your word’ is one

of the agreements and it resonated

with me when I read the book and

stays with me even today; as do the

other agreements: Don’t take things

personally; Always do your best; Don’t

make assumptions.”

—Debbie Newell-Juhos

V8 hot rods of yesteryear…[the car]

offers real character and a classy,

charming motor,” is just a sneak

peak of what he has to say about

this good-looking sports car.

Mighty Moms

4 Women Who

Ace Motherhood


No one can predict what

the journey of motherhood

will entail but one thing’s

for certain—it’s always

full of surprises and

adventure. Read on for

four adventurous stories

of motherhood as we

celebrate Mother’s Day on

May 8. Happy Mother’s Day!

Tiffany Andrews

mom of three

Tiffany is mom to Tyler (24) who's a true

warrior and someone who never gives up;

Kaitlyn (14) who's quiet but full of strength

and resilience; and Tristan (11) who's smart,

persuasive, and idolizes his big bro. The

Folsom resident is an attorney and a dual

specialist in family law and child welfare

law, and also volunteers as a board

member on FLEXCOM, a section of the

California Lawyer's Association that vets

and provides feedback for legislature.

She has formerly authored two pieces of

affirmative legislation in the area of family

law—one of which was signed into law.

Last August, Tiffany became a caregiver

for her critically injured son serving in the

Marines. He’d lost two limbs and sustained

severe damage to many of his organs

when a suicide bomber detonated a

suicide vest directly across from him while

he was serving in Afghanistan. Since then,

she’s been a fierce advocate pushing for

legislation to help business owners like

her who become caregivers when family

members become wounded. She’s come

as far as being in communication with the

White House to make this happen.

When not working or caring for her son

and family, Tiffany loves travelling and being

out on the lake on her boat, spending time

with the ones she loves most.

What has your journey through

motherhood been like?

I became a mom at 20 when I had Tyler.

I was fortunate [to know] that I always

wanted to go to college and become a

lawyer so when I got pregnant, he became

my purpose for succeeding. In law school,

failure was never an option.

What’s your parenting style?

Disciplinarian but nurturing. I try to teach

them lessons on how to handle situations,

self-reflection, and ownership of mistakes.

What are your dreams for yourself and

your children?

For my kids to live long healthy lives and

for me to live long enough to [see] all of it.

I would also love to fix the caregiver issues

for business owners, travel more, learn to

wakeboard, relearn water skiing, become

a grandma, and live close enough to my

kids. And, finally, pay off my student debt!


One thing that gets you through a day:

Sugar-free Red Bull.

Best part about being a mom: Knowing you

have raised strong children who are selfsufficient

and who will make a change in

society for the better.

Not-so-great part about being a mom:

Not always having the right answers, and

making mistakes.

Best mom advice: Teach your kids about

red flags in relationships; about how to be

self-sufficient and survivors; about taking

accountability and never making excuses.

Mom must-have: Peloton bike, running

shoes, water bottle, and Lululemon

workout clothes.

When the going gets tough… Suck it up and

just do it!

(20) who’s in the Navy and has the

closest bond with his mom; Maverick

(7) who’s a brilliant mind and friend

to all; and Chloe (5) who’s full of love

and compassion for animals, children

with disabilities, and the elderly. Her

nonprofit, The Enchanted Forest Exotic

Animal Sanctuary in Colfax takes in

displaced exotic animals and makes

them part of their family or finds them

forever homes. They bring their animals

to schools, care homes for medically

fragile children, seniors, and more.

Melyssa holds a bachelor’s in

business management and master’s in

organizational leadership, and loves to

repurpose thrift store décor and act in

murder mystery dinner theatre!

What has your journey through

motherhood been like?

It’s been incredible. Being a single mom

with my first was hard but so rewarding.

My oldest, Quintin, taught me love,

patience, and the importance of giving

your child plenty of attention.

What’s your parenting style?

I’m extremely hands on. I love supporting my children in their own individuality.

And I love cuddle time, and hugging, and kissing!

What are your dreams for yourself and your children?

My dream is that we always stay close together. I want each of them to grow up

and follow their own dreams, and every year during holidays, I want us to relive

all of the best moments of their childhood.


One thing that gets you through the day: Knowing it will always end with the

same—story time and cuddles in bed with their dad and me. I can’t think of a

more perfect way to end every day.

Best part about being a mom: I made little humans that are going to shape the

world. I love seeing all the hard work of parenting pay off by watching them

develop their own versions of compassion and love for animals and people.

Not-so-great part about being a mom: The time in your child’s life where they push you away.

The best advice I got from my own mom was to just hold on because they always come

back…if you’ve built a foundation of love and bonding in their younger years.

Best mom advice: They’re little only once. When they’re sick or scared, let them sleep in bed

with you; when they trip and fall, hug them and kiss the boo-boo. Every child needs to hear

that their parent is proud of them! Focus on the good things your children do. Apologize to

them when you’re wrong. Children also need consequences for bad behavior.

Mom must-have: Self-care time!

When the going gets tough… It means the good is around the corner!

get to know

Meena Kalyanasundaram

mom of one

Meena, is brave, outgoing,

and outspoken. She’s also a

caretaker, entrepreneur, and

stroke survivor. Born in India,

Meena now resides in Rancho

Cordova with her 24-year-old

son, Athish Somasundaram,

who has cerebral palsy due to

severe brain damage at birth.

"He's always happy, smiling,

and friendly," says Meena

fondly. She holds an MBA from

India and a master’s in special

education along with the title of

Certified Autism Specialist.

Meena quit her banking

career after her son’s birth to

give him undivided attention.

“It’s been more meaningful

as I’ve found a purpose to

life,” she says. She, along with

her husband, Som, founded

the non-profit WeEMBRACE


that serves families of

individuals with intellectual and

developmental disabilities.

Meena strongly believes that

“service to mankind is service

to God,” and has been working

with organizations across the

country for over 20 years to

advocate for children with special needs.

Last January, she was a recipient of the Tim

Haley Recognition Program Award given by the

Sacramento Disabilities Advisory Commission

for her work and contribution to the disabled

community in Sacramento County.

What has your journey through motherhood

been like?

I spent what should have been the most joyous

first week of my son’s life in hospital hallways

praying that he would survive. Except for the

day when the physicians said he was not going

to survive, I have not shed a single tear in this

special journey of motherhood.

What’s your parenting style?

Being a mom of a child with disabilities, I

believe and trust that positive parenting can

boost self-esteem and confidence.

What are your dreams for yourself and

your son?

My dream is to visit Hawaii and Europe with my

husband and son, and relive old memories.


One thing that gets you through the day:

Waking up to see my son alive, seeing him

smile, and hearing him make a sound.

Best part about being a mom: Getting to see

and feel unconditional love. You get to make

new friends, learn something new, and be

grateful every day.

Not-so-great part about being a mom: Feeling

overwhelmed and helpless–especially when

you see your child sick and unable to express

their pain and discomfort.

Best mom advice: As a mom of a child with

special needs, my advice is to stay focused

on being your child’s mother—the rest will

follow. This will help you realize there is

nothing that needs to be changed about

your child—it’s the world around you that

needs changing.

Mom must-have: Independence at all stages

of life; having at least one friend with whom

you can share happiness and pain.

When the going gets tough… Never give up;

stay focused; talk it out; and try to take things

one at a time.

What has your journey through

motherhood been like?

It’s been full of ups and downs. Since birth,

nothing really went as planned. I delivered

via emergency C-section at 36 weeks

with Mikaila, and 37 weeks with Preston.

From there, breastfeeding, tongue ties,

daycares, kids knocking out teeth...the list

goes on!

and a silver lining. Learning to enjoy

milestones, no matter how small or big,

makes parenting my favorite thing in the


What’s your parenting style?

Children learn through experiences with

but help them along the way.

What are your dreams for yourself and

the teenage years. Personally, I plan to

expand on career opportunities, providing

children and families in the community

F is for Family

Noteworthy Foster Care and

Adoption Agencies by NELLY KISLYANKA

What is



and why


we care

about it?

According to Child Welfare Information

Gateway, foster care (also known as

out-of-home care) is a temporary service

provided by the state for children who

cannot live with their families. Children

in foster care may live with relatives or

unrelated foster parents. Foster care can

also refer to placement settings such as

group homes, residential care facilities,

emergency shelters, and supervised

independent living.

Children’s Law of California which is the

largest legal services organization in the

country—advocating for over 33,000

children and youth in Los Angeles,

Sacramento, and Placer County foster

care systems—states that on any given

day, there are nearly 437,000 children in

foster care in the U.S., with over 60,000

children being admitted in the foster care

system just in California. That’s 60,000

children—a lot of them from our own

neighborhoods—who were deprived of

a stable, safe home, and the right to a

worry- and abuse-free childhood.

May is “National Foster Care Awareness

Month” and we’d like to shine the spotlight

on some fantastic local organizations

that are making fostering and adoption

a reality for families in our community.

Read on to learn more about them and

find out how you can join the cause.

There were 58,072 California children

in foster care last year who were in dire

need of proper nutrition, shelter, and

protection. Non-profit organizations like

these, help eliminate barriers for loving

families to fill those needs.

There are so many ways to get involved

if you want to support these great

organizations. No matter your time,

availability or resources, there’s a way

for you to join the cause. From opening

your home to volunteering your time—

even donating financially—you can make

a difference. Here are just a few ways to

get involved:

FosterHope Sacramento hosts their first

annual “Run to Foster Hope” 5k Mara-

thon on May 15th, celebrating Foster

Care Awareness Month. You’re invited

to help bring awareness and support for

FosterHope’s programs and enjoy a fun

event—all at McKinley Park in midtown

Sacramento. There will be vendors, food

trucks, and kids’ activities. For more

information or to register, visit


Koinonia Family Services hosts their

8th Annual Golf Tournament on May

6th at The Ridge Golf Club in Auburn.

100% of the proceeds benefit the foster

and adoptive children in Placer County.

There will be cocktails, lunch, dinner,

tee prizes, auctions, and awards. For

more information or to register, visit


If you would like to donate your time,

FosterHope Sacramento welcomes

volunteers! Visit fosterhopesac.org/

support/volunteer to fill out the appli-


And, of course, the greatest need is for

loving homes to open their doors to fos-

ter children. If you would like to learn

more about fostering or adoption, all

of these organizations provide helpful

information and a plethora of resources.

Sierra Child & Family Services

(sierrachildandfamilyservices.org) have been

serving the children and families of Northern

California since 1988. They started out helping

foster boys with emotional disturbance but now

they’re a fully licensed adoption and foster

agency. They have seven locations throughout

Northern California and serve our region through

their Diamond Springs office. Sierra Child and

Family Services says they’re committed to the

mental and emotional health of those they

serve. They are an Early and Periodic Screening,

Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) provider

with outpatient mental health clinics. They also

provide individual, group, and family therapy

because they know how critical these services are

to creating healthy, supportive communities for

children and their families.

Koinonia means “fellowship” in Greek and

it refers to a committed, trustworthy, and

dependable relationship—this is the heart of

Koinonia Family Services (kfh.org),

headquartered in Loomis. Their story began

with one woman, Miriam Golden, fostering 37

children over the course of 16 years. After being

repeatedly prompted by county workers, she

decided to start a foster agency. Miriam’s heart

and dedication continue to inspire everything

Koinonia does 40 years later. Their mission is to

bring hope and healing to children, youth, and

families through meaningful relationships and

quality programs and services. Out of their 32

offices in 22 cities across California and Nevada,

they provide early intervention and prevention

services, foster placements, homes for teens,

adoption services, and short-term residential

therapeutic programs.

Families For Children, Inc.

(families4children.com) is a full-service, nonprofit

adoption and foster care resource agency

in Roseville. They assist in finding permanent

adoptive families for foster children and provide

caring short-term foster homes for children

temporarily removed from their biological

parents. They serve Northern California with

extensive services. To make adoption more

readily possible, they offer no-fee adoption from

foster care and adoption finalization without

an attorney. In addition, they facilitate training

and support on the adoption and foster journey

via 24-hour emergency services, therapeutic

treatment services, in-home support visits, and

training in parenting skills.

The Family Network, Inc.

(adopt-familynetwork.com) is a nonprofit,

licensed adoption agency in Roseville

whose staff of social workers and adoption

professionals are committed to helping families

through every step of the adoption process.

Founded by Luke and Georgia Leonard, the

family’s personal experience with adoption

(they’ve adopted four children domestically

and internationally) proved challenging and

motivated them to form The Family Network,

Inc. in 1979. Since then, several thousand

children, both domestic and international,

have been placed with loving families locally

and throughout the U.S. Their services include

adoption home studies, relinquishment of

parental rights, Interstate Compact on the

Placement of Children (ICPC), post placement

reports, agency court work, and coordination

with placing agencies.

FosterHope Sacramento (fosterhopesac.

org) is a foster family agency serving the El

Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, and

Yolo Counties since 1985. They recruit and certify

dependable, loving foster parents for thousands of

our region’s foster children. FosterHope facilitates

four foster care programs: Respite, Whole family,

Traditional, and Extended. Respite caregivers

provide short-term care to relieve current foster

families or see whether they’re ready to become

full-time foster parents. Whole Family Foster Care

supports teens and their babies with services.

Traditional foster care involves becoming a foster

parent or resource family for kids or teens waiting

for a permanent home. Finally, the Extended

program aims to help older foster youth learn job

skills, graduate high school, and move onto college

and careers. Through these segmented programs,

FosterHope reaches vulnerable community

members at every stage.

A Few Wood Men

(and Women)

4 Local Woodworkers


Woodworking is the process of building useful or decorative objects

out of wood. The craft has been around just as long as mankind has,

and with time, has advanced with new technology and state-of-theart

projects. Here we profile four local woodworkers whose skills are


Mariah Staley and Rene Barlow

Two Rustic Gals, Rocklin

How did you get into

woodworking? When we

lived together in an apartment

we had to have our washer/

dryer replaced, and the new

appliance would require

loosing the bi-fold door

leaving the laundry closet

and storage exposed. We both

have experience working

visuals for high-end stores like

Pottery Barn and Restoration

Hardware so for us this was a

huge eye sore. We discussed

and decided a barn door

would fit in the space perfectly,

so we bought some weatheraged

wood and built our first

barn door. That door ended

up getting more attention

than we did from our guests!

We eventually moved and

decided to list the door on

Craigslist. Not only did we get

a ton of inquiries on it but we

also received a request from

someone (who is now one of

our best friends) to purchase

the door along with two more.

We started building from there

and literally have just kept on

building ever since.

How did you develop your

skills? We are still developing

our skills and, to be completely

honest, it’s very much trial

and error while we learn

hands-on in the moment. We

both love working with our

hands and can appreciate the

results despite the sawdust,

sweat, and splinters that come

with. We have also learned to

research and be patient with

the process.

What are some of your

most popular designs?

Our signature barn doors

but foremost the giant yard

games. We love game nights

and spending time with family

so creating something in our

style that offered a unique

look that represented us was

a huge accomplishment for

us. We stumbled through it at

first as with any new designs,

but the bean bag toss, giant

stacking blocks in our custom

rolling case, and our spin on a

giant Connect Four are our top

requests year around.

Favorite project? We got the

opportunity to build a family

dining table for a friend that

she plans to make a family

heirloom. The table had its

challenges in design—we

started over few times and

the materials seemed to be

working against us—but we

knew how much this piece

meant, so we scratched the

whole thing one day and started fresh and it just all came together perfectly.

At the end of the day we were extremely happy not only with the completed

piece but knowing where it was going and the generations it would host.

What advice would you give to someone just starting out? When

you hit a wall, stop, take a breath, walk away, ask for advice and, if

needed, start over. If you’re fighting it, it’s not going to be worth the

struggle. Sometimes, it needs that second set of eyes and advice to give

you a different perspective so don’t be afraid to start over and to ask for


Where can people find you? You can see most of our work on our

Instagram. @tworusticgals

Favorite project? A hardwood mallet. It’s something

I made for myself that I now use to build pieces

for clients (and it’s made from some of my favorite

hardwoods: walnut and purple heart).

What advice would you give to someone just

starting out? There is an overwhelming amount

of equipment available for woodworking—don’t be

discouraged if you don’t have it all from the start. Many

projects can be built with basic tools. Buy what you need

to complete your first project and build up from there.

Where can people find you? The best way to order

a piece or connect with me is through my website,

Ayson Woodworking, Folsom

How did you get into

woodworking? I started

woodworking out of practicality. I

needed a workbench in the garage,

a step stool in the kitchen, and other

random things around the house.

I was curious if I could build them

myself rather than buy from the

store. I quickly realized not only

that I could, but that I enjoyed it, so I

just kept going.

How did you develop your skills?

A lot of practice, and even more

patience. I bought woodworking

magazines, watched other pros

on YouTube, and asked a lot of

questions at the wood supply

stores. Ultimately, I learned best

through a ton of trial and error

(and continue to do so).

What are some of your most

popular designs? My custom

cutting boards with juice grooves

tend to sell best.

How did you get into woodworking? When my

son was a year old, I found myself with much more

time on my hands. The first year after he was born

was all-hands-on-deck and there wasn’t much time

for anything other than being a dad and husband. But

once things started to level out I had more time and I

don’t really like sitting around so I started looking for

activities to fill my time. I started doing small projects

around the house. I enjoyed them plenty, but I found

myself gravitating towards projects that involved

wood. Specifically, home goods and furniture pieces.

It started taking over my life. Every free moment I had

was dedicated to learning new techniques and getting

better at the craft. Eventually, I started being able to sell

Photos courtesy of thier respective companies or organizations.

32 stylemg.com | MAY 2022 | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

things to people and that become enough to

supplant my day job.

How did you develop your skills? When I

wasn’t doing woodworking, I was watching

YouTube videos, in woodworking forums, or

reading about woodworking. I wanted to learn

as much as I could as fast as I could. I was

voracious. All I wanted to do was get better and

learn new things. I had never had an activity in

my life that I loved as much as woodworking.

What are some of your most popular

designs? I have a passion for salvaged wood

furniture. That’s wood that comes down

naturally or has to come down in urban areas

due to development or safety concerns. I hate

seeing trees go to the land fill or being burned.

Taking that wood and turning it into a piece of

furniture that lives on in someone’s home or

family is what it’s all about for me. I think my

most popular pieces are my large live edge slab

tables. Tables are sort of my specialty!

Favorite project? My favorite project

currently is the mid-century modern media

console I just finished. It’s a design I love that’s

made of salvaged wood and has absolutely

completed the look of our living room.

What advice would you give to someone

just starting out? If you want to do this

as a business, learn how to market. Network

with people as much as you can. If there is an

opportunity to get your name out there, take it.

Every time. No one will find you if you’re hard

to find. You need to put yourself and your craft

out there in front of people as much as you

can. If you are doing it as a hobby, make what

you want to make. Don’t feel pressured to make

something just because you saw someone else

do it. Make the things that you are drawn to and

know will be fulfilling.

Where can people find you? You can find my

pieces in many businesses and homes in the

Sacramento and El Dorado County area as well

as the outlying areas. The best place to see them

is on my Instagram, YouTube, and my website,

Everything You

Need to Know

About Water Safety


Learning to swim goes hand in hand with

being safe in and around water. However,

water safety means so much more than

just knowing how to swim! Accidental

drownings can be largely avoided through

vigilant supervision, swimming skills, and

water safety training.

As part of a well-rounded learning-toswim

program, you and your children

should learn when and where it is safer to

swim. Water safety is all about preventing

aquatic accidents and deaths so that you

and your loved ones can enjoy the many

pleasures and benefits of water.

According to Stop Drowning Now

(stopdrowningnow.org), “Drowning is the

number one cause of accidental death

for children ages 1-4.” This organization

goes on to state that “61% of children,

including more than half of all teens, can’t

perform basic swim safety skills.” This

is a frightening statistic and we can all

improve upon by learning water safety.

Know Your Abilities

One key factor in water safety is knowing your swimming

abilities. Unfortunately, many people put themselves in

harm’s way when they overestimate their ability. This

is particularly true of children and teens—constant,

uninterrupted adult supervision is critical. At least one

adult should be in charge of care when playing in or near

the water.

Learning to swim and vigilant supervision are essential

in protecting against drowning. Sadly, many drowning

victims had no intention of going into the water. Instead,

they may have been fishing in a small boat and fell

overboard while not wearing a flotation device; or, perhaps,

they were enjoying the view from a dock when they fell in.

Learning how to swim and be water safe is key to helping

prevent drowning and other water-related emergencies.

Do you and your family have the necessary ability to

safely recover from an unintended fall into the water?

Whether a backyard pool or pond, a creek, or a lake,

the skill to recover from an

unintentional water entry is vital.

Swimming lessons will teach you

and your child to stay calm and

swim to safety. Unfortunately, water

can be a place of danger for the

unskilled. Water is a genuine risk

and parents and children must

know the skills needed to be water



• Learn how to swim and encourage

your entire family to learn how to

swim, too.

• Ensure that there are always

designated adults supervising the


• Learn CPR and first aid, and have

rescue equipment at the ready.

• Control access to swimming areas.

Know Your Environment

Familiarize yourself with aquatic

environments when you visit a pool,

lake, creek, or another place to

swim. Know the water depths; your

water entry should be feet first the

first time. Many catastrophic diving

injuries could be avoided by taking a

moment to know what is below the

water’s surface. Set boundaries with

your swimmers if a roped-off area

does not designate the swimming

area. Know if there is a lifeguard on

duty and understand all local risks.

Shallow water is safer for

beginners and feet first entries,

while deep water is safer for diving

and strong swimmers. The ocean

requires knowledge of potentially

dangerous tides and currents and is

for expert swimmers only.


• Always have a phone ready for

emergency calls.

• Inspect the water for potential

hazards such as sharp rocks and

rip tides.

• Know the water depths and


• Learn safe water entries.

Know How to React

There are many misconceptions

about a drowning person. In

reality, drowning is often a silent

and incredibly rapid event. It takes

mere seconds for a drowning to

occur. Most accidental drownings

can be prevented by knowing how to

swim, practicing water safety rules,

and having supervision. In an aquatic

emergency, be prepared by learning

how to perform CPR and basic first

aid. Know how to engage emergency


If you see someone in distress

in the water, know your limitations.

Rescuing a drowning person requires

specialized training, experience, and

a high level of fitness. If you do not

know how to perform an aquatic

rescue, you risk becoming a second

victim. You may be able to help,

though, by throwing a life ring or buoy

or by extending a safety hook. Further,

you can help by dialing your local

emergency services.


• Stay calm, take charge, and

call for help.

• Know your limits.

• Be prepared to react at a

moment’s notice.

• Prevent aquatic emergencies

by reducing risks.

Stinson Beach is a

popular hiking area

with potential for yearround

some of the best beer.

WHY WE LOVE IT: This trail

takes you through a

series of cascading

waterfalls as you wind

your way through

some of the Bay Area’s

finest nature. While

the hike is short, there

is plenty of elevation

gain to get your

workout in and prepare

for steeper terrain.

A: Plastic comes from the Greek

word plastikos which means

“to mold or shape.” Plastic is a

common material in our everyday

lives as it has the ability to be

shaped or molded into almost

any form. The term plastic

surgery refers to surgery that

molds or shapes the human body

and through plastic surgery,

surgeons try to achieve balance,

proportion, and symmetry to

create beauty and harmony.

With this shaping and molding

of the body, enhancements go a

long way in making a difference

physically and emotionally.

Serving infants to private kindergarten

Infant Lic. 093616199 // Pre-School Lic. 093616198

My name is Jennifer Tommasini, the owner/director of

The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool. I’ve lived in

El Dorado Hills for 19 years and I have four children.

My journey into the childcare field began in 1999 when

I was left disappointed in my search for ”the right” childcare for my

son. After going through many programs and with my daughter

on the way (now attending Chico State), I began to reflect upon

my family’s needs. It was then that I changed my career focus and

ventured into childcare. My mission is to provide a nurturing, loving,

safe and educational environment for every child.

In September 2000, I opened my home to three newborns, two

2-year-olds and a 3-year-old. I immediately knew that this was my

calling. Everything felt so natural. I went back to school full time for

early childhood education and started my own preschool program that

incorporated home-cooked meals, planned outings, and practiced an

advanced curriculum with structured activities that fostered learning.

In 2007 I opened a small pre-school with 60 families while continuing

my in-home daycare. In 2010 I expanded again, bringing my preschool

and in home-daycare under one roof- The Gift of Kids Daycare

and Preschool is now located off Labrobe Road in Business Park 1.

It has been a dream to serve so many children and give families the

satisfaction I never felt when my son was in daycare. I pride myself on

offering a safe place for families to bring their children.

The Gift of Kids currently has 25 wonderful, loving, professional

teachers and over 200 children. We provide care for infants,

preschoolers and private kindergarten. Although the size seems large,

the classrooms have a homey feel where the teachers truly care about

each child’s development. We work together on communicating

with parents and developing each child’s individual needs. It delights

me that so many children have the opportunity to experience our


We are proud that we remained open during the pandemic and have

many challenges facing small businesses today and recently partnered

with the El Dorado Arts Council. The Arts Incubator program oversees

and distributes tax deductible donations in support of The Green Room

Bogard Health - Well Aging Med

508 Gibson Dr., Ste 290 // Roseville

916-781-4300 // bogardhealth.com

Dr. Bogard has a long history in the health

field. From an RN to a nurse anesthetist

to an anesthesiologist, she spent almost

40 years in the operating room. She was

exposed to critical care, trauma, obstetrics, lots of on

call hours and sleepless nights. As she entered her

50's she found her own health starting to decline

and sought out a healthy aging physician. After

experiencing the benefits she sought out the fellowship

of regenerative and healthy aging through the

American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

She opened an office in 2014 and continues to grow

and expand her knowledge into this evolving field of

medicine. Rather than prescribing medications and

bandaging diseases she looks for the "root causes"

and integrates each system in the body together. She

also looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle

factors which result in "dis-ease". Her continued and

expanding practice utilizes bioidentical hormone

replacement, thyroid and adrenal optimization, GI

healing, peptide therapy, ozone therapy, PRP hair

therapy, as well as body contouring and weight

Claudia Cummings has been a Community and Civic leader in Folsom

for several decades. She and her late husband William have donated

large sections of ground for to the city of Folsom including the bike

trail on Creekside Drive, The Cummings Family Park and Skate

Park and a portion of the land that Mercy Hospital of Folsom rests on today.

Claudia and William also aided in the building of Mercy Hospital of Folsom

Emergency Pavilion.

Claudia was asked to sit on the board of the Folsom Economic Development

Corporation, “Choose Folsom” and the Folsom Police Foundation. Her

involvement with her partnership “Rancho Murieta Market Plaza” recently

opened a Bel Air grocery store along with a bank, Starbucks, Taco Bell and

other tenants. The underutilized shores of Lake Natoma and the American

River have caught her attention also. She is now the chairwoman of the River

District Organizing Committee. Her thoughts are “the Riverfront areas of

Folsom are great assets that are not meeting the needs of the residents or visitors

of Folsom”. The mission of her committee is to designate the land area adjacent

to the American River and Lake Natoma as a special district and to support

enhancement for current and future residents.

Claudia’s philanthropic endeavors include the Folsom Historical Society, The

Chan House, The Murer House, The Nevada Art Museum, The SF MOMA,

The Crocker Art Gallery, Folsom Lake Symphony and Folsom Lake Civic

Ballet. In her spare time Claudia owns part of CBT Deer Creek Vineyard, a

landowner in Metro Air Park, and an active board member of the University

Development Fund whose purpose is to land a four year private university to this

area. She is truly a bundle of energy that the Eveready Bunny will never catch.

1216 Suncast Ln., Ste 1 // El Dorado Hills // 916-292-9777

Caring for patients for over 25 years as a family

practice physician has been very rewarding to me.

Augmenting my traditional medicine practice

with functional and regenerative medicine has

inspired me to find the root cause of patients’ illnesses while

also bringing them to their optimal health from the inside

out. Feeling well is the primary goal. I have incorporated

many modalities to keep patients living lives to their fullest.

Growing up in Hawaii, I enjoyed being in a naturally healthy

environment and I found myself wanting to promote health

in others. Becoming a physician, and traveling a path ranging

from serving as President of my medical school class to

serving as a Chief Resident of the U.C. Davis Department

of Family and Community Medicine, allowed me to develop

a solid foundation for having an active presence in the lives

of my patients and finding deep satisfaction in seeing them

thrive. In my practice, I promote attainment of key health

objectives by encouraging, among other things, lifestyle

changes, supplementation, energy medicine, low intensity

extracorporeal shockwave therapy, platelet rich plasma,

myofascial release therapy, PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic

field therapy), and ION Cleanse to benefit and enrich

my patients’ lives. In 2021, I began utilizing the OPUS

microfractional plasma system to rejuvenate facial skin,

bringing my patients even closer to optimal health, so that

they can not only feel their best, but also look their best.

local community leader in the arts, housing over 500

students ranging in ages from 18 months to 18 years

old. Kelli credits LDP’s success to her philosophy of

teaching the foundations and commitments of dance

to help guide and develop her students as people, not

simply dancers. This approach has helped lead her

students to thrive in all aspects of their lives.

Kelli’s impact on the local community stretches

far beyond LDP. She has led dance programs at

numerous Sacramento studios and founded CORE

Contemporary Dance, one of Sacramento's Premier

Professional Dance Companies. Ultimately her passion

led her back to owning her own studio, teaching young

dancers to dream big.

Along with juggling the challenges of being a business

owner, Kelli is the proud mom of 4 young children.

Her family first approach is the backbone of her

business and guides her even during these challenging

times. Kelli is proud to stand alongside so many

inspiring women in business.

My name is Melodee Rohlff. I founded a

unique model of care, VIP Concierge

Care. I saw the need with early

discharges after surgeries. The fear,

anxiety and uncertainty is a stressor and in turn

slows healing which causes undesired outcomes:

infections, postop bleeding and prolonged healing.

We take that on for you and your family allowing

a healing environment in the comfort of your own

space with knowledgeable caregivers.

Not everyone wants to have family or friends assisting

them. I am an ER Critical Care RN BSN with

public health care certifications and have worked

from Stanford University to Santa Clara Valley

Trauma Center from the OR to the ER. I care for

clients in their homes, Airbnbs, or hotels following

surgery. While I do focus on plastic surgery, I also

provide aftercare for all procedures such as maternity,

orthopedic, and cardiac. Patients are discharged

quicker than in the past and are often left with

unanswered questions. Let us be your advocate after

surgery or by telehealth for simple questions. Mobile

Get your Backyard



Summer is just around the

corner, which translates to

long days and late nights

spent outside with your family

and friends.

To get your backyard and

outdoor spaces ready for

summer entertaining, we’ve

turned to local experts to share

their best tips and tricks—

including how to maintain your

outdoor furniture, trim your

trees, spruce up your plants,

and more.

Keep it Clean

Jim Singer, product manager at Terra Outdoor Living (terraoutdoor.com)

in Rocklin, sums up his tips in three little words. “Clean, clean, clean!”

he urges. “Wash any cushions with a mild detergent and a soft brush to

clean off any dirt or grime left over from last season. After washing and

letting the cushion dry, you can apply a coat of fabric protector to help

then just keep the wood clean with soap and water,” he


Singer also recommends hosing down metal and

wicker frames and washing with a mild detergent. He

says you should “check all furniture frames for any

issues, such as paint scratches or missing hardware

glides (feet). [And don’t forget to] tighten bolts that may

have loosened over time.”

To revamp the look, you can spruce up your area by

adding colorful new throw pillows or a snappy new

area rug. Add fun lighting with rechargeable colorful

LED lanterns or add a fire table to your space for some

warmth and ambiance during cool summer evenings.

keep your cushions clean and moisture-resistant. If cushions look

old and worn, try replacing them with a new color for a fresh new


For teak wood furniture, Singer suggests applying a sealer

after cleaning to prevent the wood from turning grey from

the sun’s UV rays. “If you don’t mind the beautiful patina look,

Tend to the Trees

To get your trees ready for the season, Marianne Waindle,

Arborist at Acorn Arboricultural Services (787tree.com)

in Roseville, says it’s common for many of us to put tree

maintenance last on the list as we rush to plant flowering

annuals and vegetables. She says getting ready for the

season includes having trees pruned to allow more filtered

light into your vegetable patches and pools. “Now is the time

to remove older fruit so late season harvest diseases are not

present when the new fruit develops. Keeping fruit on our

trees is one way to store these orbs of joy until needed, but

often our trees start to look like a movable garbage site.”

Waindle suggests homeowners consider working with

a professional tree care company that can keep trees

and shrubs looking their best during the prime time of

spring and summer. “Sales arborists that are certified by

the International Society of Arboriculture are proficient

in pruning your trees for continued healthy growth,”

she says. “Sometimes poorly trained tree climbers will

work close to the trunk and prune out all the small

limbs and foliage for a dramatic visual effect. This

MAY 2022 | stylemg.com 79

| home & garden |

weight displacement towards the ends of the branches puts

undo pressure where the limb attaches to the main stem.” This

practice contributes to “sudden limb drop” and customers

are confused because they had their tree pruned, Waindle

says. It may be more expensive to engage a professional tree

care company, but in the long run, it will save you money and

preserve the natural shape of the tree.

Beautify Naturally

Kellie Natoli, a garden guru at Green Acres Nursery & Supply

(idiggreenacres.com) in Folsom, shared how to freshen up your

empty pots and containers with new plants and flowers. She

says each container should have a thriller (center plant), filler

(filler plants), and spiller (cascading plants). And that adding

evergreen plants as the ‘thriller’ is smart. “If the thriller

keeps its leaves all year, then simply replace the ‘filler’ and

‘spiller’ plants each spring and fall,” she recommends.

For cleaning up, you’ll need to prune and deadhead.

“Large hedges or bushes might be due for a haircut. This

simple task could dramatically open up your entertaining

space!” says Natoli. Shrubs like Azaleas, Rhododendrons,

Peonies, and Lavender need to be deadheaded. Get out

your pruners and clip or pull off old flowers.

Next, look at hanging plants, which add a burst of color

to any space. Natoli suggests placing plants in a location

with appropriate sun exposure. Adding that hanging

baskets generally need more watering than a plant in the


If you’re wondering how to bring your ho-hum plants

back to life, Natoli asks, “When is the last time you

fertilized? Many plants perk up with a little fertilizer and

TLC. We like all products from E.B. Stone with a favorite at

the nursery being Organics Fish Emulsion.” She also let us

in on her best kept watering secret. “Is it time to water? Test

with your finger to a depth of two inches. If the soil is dry,

it’s time to water! If not, give it another day,” she says.

So where and how will you begin your backyard revival?

Whatever you do, make sure it’s a fun, safe, and inviting

space for you and your people to enjoy the weather and

each other’s company.

Join us on an eating odyssey as

we head south of the border—

while staying right here in town.

We’re not just talking tacos

and tequila (although, it’s not

NOT that). There’s so much

more. Pupusas, arepas, asado,

elotes, picanha, platanos fritos,

sopapillas, pan dulce, and, of

course, flan. (Oh, sweet flan.)

There’s so much delicious food to

be found in your neighborhood if

you know where to look; whether

it’s Mexican, Central American,

South American—it’s all here. So,

put on your fanciest eating pants

and ven con nosotras!

Flame & Fire


Steakhouse uses a

Brazilian technique

known as Churrasco,

dating back over three

centuries. Meats are

slow roasted over a

flame on what’s called

a skewer but looks

like an actual sword.

Sounds impressive,

right? Spoiler alert:

It’s delicious, too. Try

the Rodizio Dinner—a

parade of flamegrilled

swords of meat,

carved tableside,

served along with

salads and Brazilian

specialties. I mean, if

you’re into that kind of

grandiosity. We sure

Zócalo is serving up modern Mexican cuisine with true Mexican

hospitality. Join the party at their locations in Folsom or Roseville.

Cochinita Pibil is a fan favorite—and the fans are always right. A

traditional dish originating from the Yucatan peninsula, the achioterubbed

smoked pork shoulder is served with habanero salsa,

pickled red onions, and an arugula salad. Why are you still here? You

Placerville is apparently the place to be

for authentic Mexican cuisine and Santa

Maria Taqueria is no exception. Here

you’ll find real-deal street tacos with all

your favorites like asada, carnitas, al pastor,

and chicken; overly indulgent dishes like

the Wet Burrito that's bathed in red or

green salsa (or both!); and even tastier

delicacies for the more adventurous, like

moronga (blood sausage), lengua (beef

tongue), cachete (beef cheek), and tripe.

You can also find Salvadoran pupusas with

chicharrons and cheese! 175 Placerville Drive,

A local empire unto itself, Chando’s Cantina

now brings authentic Mexican street food from the

streets of Tijuana straight to El Dorado Hills. Try the

absolutely delectable Tacos Al Pastor that makes

perfectly marinated pork sing in your mouth. Check

Some locals will tell you that Tijuana Taqueria serves

the best Mexican food in Placerville. We’ll let you decide,

but be prepared for scintillating salsas, carnitas by the

pound, and burritos the size of an adult’s head. There’s

much to be appreciated here, including the Chile

Relleno, comprising a battered and fried poblano

pepper stuffed with cheese, and covered in a lipsmacking

tomato sauce (we suggest getting the plate

with rice and beans). So, yay or nay? You tell us. We bet

it’s a resounding “yay!” 1762 Broadway, Placerville, 530-622-9517,

Lola's Tequila Bar

& Cocina is the place

to go for a festive

atmosphere and

upbeat, friendly service.

Obviously, tequila is the

order of the day and you

cannot go wrong with

a margarita (or three).

Menu wise, there’s lots

to choose from but a

particular standout is

the Mango Ceviche

(sweet chili, lime juice,

red onion, mango, red

and avocado served with

jicama tostadas) that’s

perfect for summer! 1563

in the twenty-dollar burrito that’s

Mezcalito Oaxacan

Cuisine specializes in

Oaxacan delicacies and

if you need to know one

thing about Oaxaca, it’s

affectionately known as the

“land of the seven moles.”

So, it’s only right that you

try the Oaxaca’s Favorite:

Free-range chicken

marinated with Oaxacan

fresh herbs, served with

your choice of mole rojo,

estofado or mole verde.

(They’re all one better than

the other!) And when (not

if) you order the tlayuda

(corn tortilla toasted and

smothered in black bean

paste with cabbage,

quesillo, avocado, queso

fresco, tomato, radish,

you level up with Oaxaca’s

traditional meal, tasajo

sautéed mushrooms,

Colina Del Oro in Diamond Springs proves that you can’t let appearances fool

you. Exteriors might look unassuming but inside you’ll find a cozy, welcoming

restaurant for the whole family—the kind of place where you hear just as much

about the service as the food. Speaking of food, check out the Camarones

Don Felipe: Shrimp wrapped in bacon with butter, garlic, and spicy southwest

seasonings, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, and served with red potatoes and

rice. Dios mio! 694 Pleasant Valley Road, Suite 1, Diamond Springs, 530-295-8356

Rudy’s Mexican Gourmet keeps it simple with traditional family

recipes. Grandma’s Chicken Tortilla Soup is top of the must-eats

(when it’s coming straight from grandma, you don’t ask questions

and you definitely come back for more!). Fajitas? Shmajitas. Ditch

the zero and get down with the hero. Try the alambres, a cast iron

skillet of succulent meat (steak, shrimp or chicken), prepared with

bell peppers, pasilla peppers, roasted potatoes, bacon, onions,

melted Oaxaca cheese, and tortillas. Between the tortilla soup and

the alambres, Rudy’s is fast becoming local legend. 6011 Stanford Ranch

the Salvadoran Pupusas (cornmeal

flatbread stuffed with cheese, beans,

shrimp, or chicharron) and tamales, and

stay for the tasty delicacies like curtido

and platanos fritos (fried plantains).

Roseville’s Jalisco Fairway Grill hits all the highs for

great Mexican food, but the menudo on weekends is

the local favorite. Honeycomb tripe, corn hominy, and

beef feet in a deep red chili broth will warm you to your

bones. It’s the definition of comfort food. In other comfort

food news, the mojarra frita (fried tilapia) plate is a meal

worth having. So is the Molcajete Bowl with chicken,

steak, shrimp, chorizo, and green salsa, topped with

green onions, fresh cheese, and grilled jalapeño. You

won’t regret it! 9050 Fairway Drive, Suite 155, Roseville, 916-787-1682,

tres leches cake, milhojas pastries, ice cream conchas,

185 Placerville Road, Suite

150, Folsom, 916-694-0202,

flockpizza.com, @flockpizza

Achef-driven, coastalinspired

escape has

already made a splash

in the Folsom foodie

scene. The open-air feel

and Southern California

beach vibes of Flock Pizza have been

met with a huge welcome from the

Folsom community, and, at first bite,

it’s clear why.

On a Friday evening at 5 p.m.,

there was only a single table available.

The rest of the space was filled with

a lively, fresh atmosphere that was

well-suited to the unpretentious yet

elegant design of Flock.

With an impressive culinary

resume spanning some of the most

renowned restaurants in

the country—including

stints with James



Jordan Davis draws

from an inspired family

history to create an

ingredient-first mantra

that reverberates through

every bite from the

menu. Pulling from his

childhood experiences

of harvesting and

cooking fresh vegetables

and herbs with his

mother, Chef Davis has

based Flock’s menu around fresh

ingredients while never using a single

canned tomato.

Following our waitress’ advice,

we decided to split a pie and a few

appetizers. We started with the

Spanish octopus, a bold undertaking

with a Mediterranean twist. With

a tenderness you wouldn’t expect

from what is typically a very

chewy endeavor, the octopus was

accompanied by an olive relish

that carried an herbaceous kick of

oregano, parsley, and tarragon. Sitting

on a bed of lemon aioli, this appetizer

was some of the best octopus we’ve

ever had.

Next, the Southeast Asian-inspired

Brussels sprouts came perfectly

charred, marinated in chili, lime, fish

sauce, and sprinkled with peanuts. It

was a delightful departure from your

typical Brussels sprouts.

The meatballs then came in a

fresh, house-made tomato sauce with

a delicate balance of basil, fennel

seeds, and chili flakes. The whipped

ricotta added a much-appreciated

touch of creaminess and freshness.

“I want to feed people what I would

want to feed my kids,” says Chef

Davis, proud of his wholesome—and


Finally, the Asian pear pizza

arrived on a three-day fermented

crust. It was light, tasty, and,

apparently, easier to digest than

typical pizza dough. The three-day

wait translated to a lightness of the

crust uplifted by fresh mozzarella,

arugula, prosciutto, and pear. If there

was one thing I would add, it would

be just a touch of olive oil to balance

out the generous serving of arugula.

Delicious dinner aside, the open

environment contributes to quite

a noisy atmosphere, but the open

seating, beach vibes, and communityinspired

space were some of the

things we liked most.

Overall, the ingredients-first ethos

has created a unique and varied

menu that’s forecasted to change

with the seasons. Flock also plans on

offering a lunch menu soon, and if it’s

anything like their dinner, it’s sure to

be #FlockingAmazing!

There’s a place in Rocklin where you can drink a shake, then shake it off. Literally.

Thrive serves up super tasty protein shakes, smoothies, teas, and snacks. Then,

just steps away, is a room where they offer free (yes, FREE) exercise classes like

strength training and cardio drumming. When you order your drink, you start

with an Aloe Shot. (The kind of shot you drink, of course!) The aloe helps with

digestion and contains antioxidants, and you can choose between three flavors:

mango, cranberry, and mandarin orange. I tried the mandarin orange and was

pleasantly surprised as it was refreshing and light. Next, choose your drink. In

the mood for tea? Their Fusion Teas are almost too pretty to drink, and they’re

packed with nutrients. But, once I saw the folks across the way shaking it, I was

in a shake mood. It was hard to choose one because they have quite the menu:

Cookie Dough, Oatmeal Cookie, Banana Berry, Twix…decisions, decisions. I

ended up with the Caramel Mocha Latte. When something tastes good and is

healthy, it’s a great find; and I found it! Their shakes have 24 grams of plant-based

protein, are dairy-free, and run between 220 and 260 calories. They also have

healthy cookies! How is that even a sentence? No white flour or sugar, and glutenfree.

I bought two. (The Chocolate Crinkle called my name). One for me, and one

for…me. What?! They’re healthy! — by JULIE RYAN
