Style Magazine - Readers Choice Awards - Folsom El Dorado Hills 2022

In this month’s issue, our biggest of the year, we’re celebrating the season—along with all our region’s small businesses (and business owners)—in a big way. If you’re like me and read magazines back to front, then start with “Last Look” on page 82 for an autumn-esque picture snapped locally and our favorite leaf-peeping locales, including East Sacramento—an urban forest that’s currently awash in a canopy of yellow, orange, and crimson-colored trees. Leaving the leaves behind, turn to page 68 for some easy, autumn-inspired recipes utilizing the cream of the harvest crop, including a butternut squash risotto you’ll be eager to reheat…and have on repeat. In honor of the most hallowed holiday—the one where consuming colossal amounts of candy and donning creepy costumes is A-OK—we asked area distilleries for their “boo”ziest, most spirited cocktails. Pick your poison (I think I’ll start with the Midori-spiked, freaky-looking “Frankenstein”) on page 72. We also share some fun, festive Halloween happenings in The 10 Spot (page 16) that are sure to (pumpkin) spice up the season. Around here, it wouldn’t be October without our annual “Best of” feature, where we announce the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards. It’s a personal favorite because I always discover new (literally) winning places around town to support—like Pasty Pies of the World and Exhilaration Station—and am reminded of all the talented, innovative entrepreneurs our region is teeming with. Find out if your favorite people and places made the list starting on page 51. There’s much more in store, too, including an inspiring, informative piece about local women beating breast cancer (page 20); a spotlight on some of the area’s best bands (page 26); and tips on making sure your WFH office is an authentic place of productivity, whether you prefer to work indoors or (like me!) out (page 54). I hope you’ll agree that these glossy print pages are as plentiful and uplifting as the autumn season itself. Enjoy! ——Megan megan@stylemg.com @meggoeggowaffle

| editor’s letter |

What’s your favorite season?

I recently took an unofficial

poll and—with the exception

of my spring-loving sister

(who apparently isn’t

affected by allergies!)—

received a resounding

response for “autumn!” This didn’t come as a

huge surprise, especially living in this area. The

kaleidoscope of colors; cool, crisp mornings that

call for cozy cardigans; abundance of alfresco

activities (don’t miss Big Crush, Auburn Wine, Ale,

& Food Festival, or Folsom Family Expo; turn to

page 30 for dates and details); and cornucopia of

seasonal flavors to savor (apples, pumpkins, and

pies, oh my!), makes it easy to fall for fall.

And in this month’s issue, our biggest of the

year, we’re celebrating the season—along with

all our region’s small businesses (and business

owners)—in a big way. If you’re like me and read

magazines back to front, then start with “Last Look” on page 82 for an autumnesque

picture snapped locally and our favorite leaf-peeping locales, including East

Sacramento—an urban forest that’s currently awash in a canopy of yellow, orange,

and crimson-colored trees.

“There are

three things

that I’ve

learned never

to discuss

with people:

religion,

politics, and

the Great

Pumpkin.”

—Linus Van Pelt, It’s

the Great Pumpkin,

Charlie Brown

Leaving the leaves behind, turn to page 68 for some

easy, autumn-inspired recipes utilizing the cream of

the harvest crop, including a butternut squash risotto

you’ll be eager to reheat…and have on repeat.

In honor of the most hallowed holiday—the one

where consuming colossal amounts of candy and

donning creepy costumes is A-OK—we asked area

distilleries for their “boo”ziest, most spirited cocktails.

Pick your poison (I think I’ll start with the Midorispiked,

freaky-looking “Frankenstein”) on page 72. We

also share some fun, festive Halloween happenings in

The 10 Spot (page 16) that are sure to (pumpkin) spice

up the season.

Around here, it wouldn’t be October without our

annual “Best of ” feature, where we announce the

winners of this year’s ReadersChoice Awards. It ’s

a personal favorite because I always discover new

(literally) winning places around town to support—like

Pasty Pies of the World and Exhilaration Station—and am reminded of all the talented,

innovative entrepreneurs our region is teeming with. Find out if your favorite people

and places made the list starting on page 51.

There’s much more in store, too, including an inspiring, informative piece about

local women beating breast cancer (page 20); a spotlight on some of the area’s best

bands (page 26); and tips on making sure your WFH office is an authentic place of

productivity, whether you prefer to work indoors or (like me!) out (page 54).

I hope you’ll agree that these glossy print pages are as plentiful and uplifting as the

autumn season itself. Enjoy!

?“Practical Magic. Though not

technically a Halloween movie,

there’s a Halloween reference; plus,

I’m a sucker for rom-coms and Aidan

Quinn.”—Wendy Sipple

What’s your

favorite

Halloween

movie?

“Hocus Pocus is such a classic—I

watch it every October. I hope the

sequel doesn’t disappoint!”

—Kourtney Jason

“Beetlejuice—Tim Burton’s brilliant,

comedic, ghoulish, whimsical portrayal

of the afterlife. It’s gross, freaky, and

funny all in one.”—Gary Zsigo

“Watching It's the Great Pumpkin,

Charlie Brown is a family tradition.

Nothing beats hanging with the kiddos,

eating popcorn and candy, and

watching this Halloween favorite.”

—Theresa Arnold-Hale

“Although I love a good scary movie, I

have to say Hubie Halloween is one

I could watch multiple times. Don’t

judge.”—Julie Ryan

“Growing up, Hocus Pocus was THE

Halloween movie and forever changed

the way I look at Morton Salt. The

classic story line, the fantasy elements,

and the way it makes use of the

range of emotions makes it an all-time

favorite.”—Ryan Martinez

THE ROAD BEAT

In this month’s “The Road Beat” column, auto

aficionado and local resident Mitchell Weitzman

takes the 2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI for a spin

and shares his honest review. “Affordable and

practical with great performance but a serving

of bad tech” is just a sneak peak of what he has

to say about it.

and nonprofits. His dedication to our region is unmatched...”

BEATING BREAST CANCER

by PAULINE ARROYO | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month,

we’re highlighting four women in our

community who have fought and/or continue to

fight the disease. Keep reading to discover their

important stories and words of wisdom.

Tina Macuha

Good Day Sacramento anchor Tina

Macuha was diagnosed in March 2009

with stage 0 breast cancer and had a

double mastectomy that April. Tina has a

family history of the disease including her

grandmother, four cousins, and mother.

“My mom died of breast cancer in the

early ’80s, so I was diligent on getting

mammograms right after she passed

away.” After deciding to share the news

with viewers, the outpouring of love

and support was immediate. “I received

emails from women who said they put

off their mammograms and seeing me

go through this made them schedule

[an] appointment.”

What advice do you have for other

women?

Bring someone with you to your

appointments so they can take notes and

help ask questions. When we're stressed

and overwhelmed with this diagnosis,

we don't hear what the doctor is saying

because we're in fear mode. Always ask

questions and be an advocate for yourself!

What has this journey taught you?

I've learned I can reach out to others for

support and do what it takes to be healthy. I

feel so fortunate to have family and friends

who held me up during a difficult time.

This journey taught me blessings come in

many ways.

Karly Hernandez

Jackson resident Karly Hernandez is a

dedicated wife and loving mother to two

daughters. The month after her brother

passed away, in May 2021, she found a

lump in her left breast. That September she

was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer.

Though she initially experienced hurdles

obtaining insurance coverage and care,

she found a multifaceted approach from

Marshall Medical Center. “Marshall has been

great. They’re very attentive; as a questioner

by nature, they answer all [of mine]. I feel

so blessed to be accepted by them.” Now

cancer-free, Karly continues to undergo

chemotherapy. While in treatment, she

makes sure to visit and get to know all the

other patients in the cancer center.

What advice do you have for other

women?

Listen to your body, listen to your gut,

and pursue it. Mindset is everything.

Although it’s scary, doctors and resources

are there to help you get through it. I am

very thankful for everyone and to God for

pulling me through.

What has this journey taught you?

Appreciate the small moments. I’m

thankful to be here with my babies and

grateful to get to see them grow up…to be

there for first days of school and to read

[them] bedtime stories.

get to know

Ashley McMahon

Ashley McMahon beat stage 1 invasive ductal

carcinoma in 2017 and is currently fighting a return

of metastatic breast cancer throughout her body.

Both diagnoses were a shock and have included

intense treatments, such as radiation, surgery,

chemotherapy, bone infusions, and oxygen. But

through it all, Ashley remains determined. “I have

had an amazing support network of family and

friends both times. I have so many prayer warriors

looking out for me…I have also chosen to be a

fighter and stay positive.”

What advice do you have for other women?

Be vigilant. My initial diagnosis happened because

I stayed on top of things. Ask questions and go

for checkups; don't be afraid. You may feel alone,

but you aren't. There are so many of us out there

fighting cancer, and the bond you can form with

others fighting and surviving is special.

What has this journey taught you?

Pay attention to your body. Live for today and learn

from yesterday but don't live there. If you have

plans, make them happen; don't wait for anyone

else to make your life what you want it to be.

Carol Garcia

Carol is a 24-year breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed

at age 39, thanks to a proactive gynecologist

who listened to her concerns and helped her

find the right treatment, she underwent four

surgeries including a double mastectomy to

become cancer-free. As with many women, her

diagnosis came as a shock. “I thought, ‘I don’t

have time for this.’ I have two girls to raise, and

I was working full-time.” Now, however, cancer

care takes precedence in her life. Through the

Auburn Community Cancer Endowment Fund

(health.ucdavis.edu/cancer/giving/donors/auburncommunity-fund.html)

and the Placer Breast

Cancer Foundation (placerbreastcancerfoundation.

org), she has dedicated herself to raising money

for cancer research, care, and education.

What advice do you have for other women?

Don't put off getting mammograms. Even if your

insurance won't pay for them, there are no-cost

resources available. Early detection has come a

long way.

What has this journey taught you?

Slow down, listen to your body, and don’t get

overwhelmed. We live in a high-paced world and

sometimes you just need to take a moment for

yourself. Spend time with people you love and

don’t get caught up in the rush.

Face the Music

Spotlight on Local Bands

by BELLA NOLEN

What better way to gather as a community and

support small businesses than listening to live music

at local venues? Below are some of the region’s best

bands making waves locally and across the country.

Bad Mother Nature

badmothernature.com

What’s the story behind the band’s

name?

The idea came from a lyric Axel wrote down

before the band even started. [Then] we

took a straw vote on social media, and the

response to Bad Mother Nature was pretty

positive.

What do you find yourself singing

about in most of your songs?

We write a lot in metaphors. On the

surface, [it may appear to be] a story about a

character or event, but we’re actually talking

about a recent news event or something

involving our own band’s experiences.

What does your songwriting process

look like?

Initially, songs were written by Axel or Ryan;

they would each write lyrics on their own

and share them with the band when they

were ready. More recently, however, we’ve

starting writing songs as a group.

This four-piece rock band performs up,

down, and around the region at clubs and

dive bars, including top spots like Ace of

Spades, the Viper Room in Hollywood, and

House of Blues in Anaheim. Described as

“refining a balance between driving guitar

riffs, progressive yet nuanced piano licks,

and buttery vocal harmony melodies,” they

bring a distinctive, unforgettable sound

wherever they go.

Members: Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred

(guitarist and bassist duo), Ryan Allred

(pianist), and Jon McCann (drummer)

How long has the band been together

and how was it formed?

Six years. In 2016, Corey’s brother, Ryan,

joined the band to play piano, [while]

helping with songwriting and vocals. When

[our friend] Sam left the band, we found our

drummer, Jon, who joined in 2018.

Who are some of your musical

influences?

Pink Floyd, Elton John, Led Zeppelin,

Sturgill Simpson, Kaleo, Hozier, Nirvana,

Greta Van Fleet, The Eagles, Fleetwood

Mac, and The Beatles.

Ariel Jean Band

ariealjean.com

Known for their unique sound as well as

the fact they’re a sister trio, the Ariel Jean

Band is a two-time Sammie-nominated

group for “Country Artist of the Year”

and has multiple CDs and a music video

under their belt. What’s more, they’re

known for giving back to the community

by performing at local charity events and

donating to families in need.

Members: Ariel Jean (songwriter, singer),

Amber Joy (singer), Aubrey Anne (singer),

Louis Brazil (drummer), John Gormley (bass

player), and Andy Gomez (lead guitarist)

How long has the band been together

and how was it formed?

Five years ago, I was inspired to form a

band to showcase my original music. My

sisters, Amber Joy and Aubrey Anne,

joined after I established the band and

became lead singers as well. We’re a family

band, as my dad and husband also join us

on stage.

Who are some of your musical

influences?

Miranda Lambert, John Mayer, Chris

Stapleton, and Maren Morris.

What’s the story behind the band’s

name?

When I first started out, I would use my

name when announced on stage; once

| arts & culture |

the band was formed, we switched it to

the Ariel Jean Band.

What do you find yourself singing

about in most of your songs?

Life events [or] friends saying something

funny or sad. Some of it has just been

creative ideas I’ve gotten while running or

in the shower! Recently, I’ve noticed that

my songs are inspired by my amazing

family and friends.

Manzanita

themanzanita.com

What does your songwriting process

look like?

It’s always different, but usually the title

and concept of the song comes first (AKA

the “hook”); the melody and verses often

come from me sitting down with my

guitar and singing along.

Popular indie-folk band Manzanita blends

Americana and country music to create

catchy melodies and powerful harmonies

that inspire and delight crowds across

the region. Original songwriting and

storytelling contribute to the group’s

freshness and comprehensive feel. Check

them out on October 2 and 23 at Bishop's

Pumpkin Farm and October 13 at the

Orangevale Farmers’ Market.

What does your songwriting process

look like?

We almost always start with strumming

the acoustic. When I come up with a

chord progression or a riff that I like, I start

Rowland & Tumblin’

kylerowlandandblues.com

adhering ideas based around it all. Then,

I bring the rough tune to Aaron, and he

experiments with different instrumentation

until one feels right. He often comes up with

a signature lick that helps define the song.

Members: Nick Foster (lead vocals, guitar,

drums, harmonica) and Aaron Shively

(pedal steel, vocals, electric guitar, mandolin)

How long has the band been together

and how was it formed?

Eight years now. We met at an open mic

night at the Country Club Saloon in Loomis.

I (Nick) saw Aaron onstage with Nikko

Marker, a good friend and original member

of Manzanita. Then I went onstage and

played a couple of original tunes. Aaron

approached me after and jokingly said,

“You’re in the band!” so I said, “Okay!”

Who are some of your musical

influences?

For Nick, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Bob

Dylan, Guy Clark, and The Doors. For

Aaron, Humankind, Eric Heywood, Buddy

Emmons, Old Slow Hand, and Speedy West.

What’s the story behind the band’s

name?

Manzanita is a beautiful, tough, evergreen

shrub that thrives here in the foothills. One

night sitting around a fire with some friends,

someone suggested Manzanita, and it stuck.

What do you find yourself singing

about in most of your songs?

We have songs about love, sitting on the

river, staying out ‘til the sun comes up,

or appreciating the simple things in life.

Oftentimes, there is a story arc in our

songs like in “Death in Arizona.”

This band performs a bit of everything—

from loud and energetic Chicago jazz to

Texas blues and a dash of West Coast swing.

Named “Blues Harmonica Player of the

Year” and “Blues New Artist of the Year” by

West Coast Blues Hall of Fame, Rowland &

Tumblin’ pours it all into their lively music.

Members: Kyle Rowland (vocals, harp,

guitar), Kenny Marchese (guitarist), Mike

Philips (bass), and Frank Maraglia (drums)

How long has the band been together

and how was it formed?

Kenny and I (Kyle) started it in 2010. I

received a call from the Monterey Bay

Blues Festival asking if I had a band. At

the time I didn’t but told them I did to

get into the festival. Once I hung up, I

realized, “I better get a band!”

Who are some of your musical

influences?

James Cotton, Papa Lightfoot, and Lazy

Lester, among many others from that era.

What’s the story behind the band’s

name?

For a while, we were The Kyle Rowland

Blues Band. I wanted to rebrand, and

there is an old blues song that multiple

artists have done or sang about called

“Rollin’ Tumblin,” [so] I used my last name

as a play on words [to subtly nod] to our

influences.

What do you find yourself singing

about in most of your songs?

Real life experiences. Music is a spiritual

experience, so everything the band plays

has meaning behind it.

What does your songwriting process

look like?

It kind of just comes to us. Whether it’s a

situation we went through with a friend

or something they’re going through, it

helps inspire a song.

Food

Rules

Nutrition Myths,

Debunked

by KOURTNEY JASON

Having studied nutrition over the years, Heather

Crivellone, a personal trainer and nutritionist at

Roseville Health & Wellness Center (rosevillehwc.

com), has had the opportunity to help hundreds

of people lose weight and regain their

confidence. “I have been asked numerous

questions over the years regarding the latest

diet ‘fads’ and how to keep off those pesky

pounds,” she says. Here, Crivellone—along

with four more experts—tackles some top

nutrition myths with a dash of science

and a pinch of common sense.

MYTH #1 Skinny is healthy.

“This is one of the biggest lies

out there,” Crivellone says. “Just because someone is

‘skinny,’ doesn’t mean they’re healthy. Someone can be in the ‘normal’ BMI range

but not [physically or mentally] fit. Pant size doesn't matter, it’s what’s on the

inside and whether you've been living a strong and healthy lifestyle. Instead of

focusing on getting ‘skinny,’ we should all be focusing on getting fit and strong

to live a long, healthy, and productive life.”

MYTH #2 Fats make you fat.

“Good sources of fat are very beneficial for you and keep

you satiated for longer,” says Isidora Marín and Ryan Martinez, co-owners

at Bikram Yoga Folsom (bikramyogafolsom.com). “Some good examples are

avocados, olive oil, plain Greek yogurt, butter, and nuts.”

MYTH #3 Drinking fruit juice is a good way to increase fruit

in your diet.

“Fruit juice is high in added sugars and an

easy way to add more calories to your diet

than necessary,” Crivellone says. “A cup

of fruit juice can have as much as 40

grams of sugar, which is equivalent

to 10 teaspoons! Consuming too

| health & wellness |

much sugar increases your risk of many

chronic diseases, including heart disease,

diabetes, and strokes. One of my biggest

pet peeves—not only as a trainer but as

a mom—is when I see kids constantly

drinking fruit juice. With the obesity

pandemic we have in America, the last

thing we should be doing is teaching our

children that fruit juice is the same as

eating a piece of fruit. Skip the juice and

have a crisp apple or drink water.”

MYTH #4 Your body needs a

cleanse.

“Whether a juice, liver, or colon cleanse, our

bodies already have a built-in detox system.

It’s our lungs, liver, kidneys, and digestive

tract all working together to eliminate

toxins from our bodies. We don’t need to

spend hundreds of dollars for shakes, juices,

and powders to ‘eliminate’ these toxins,”

Crivellone says. “If you really want a ‘detox,’

take a few weeks off from drinking alcohol,

eating processed foods, and get in some

good sweat sessions at the gym. This is the

type of ‘detox’ everyone needs!”

MYTH #5 Breakfast is the

most important meal

of the day.

“By definition, breakfast means to break

the fast,” says Pamela Connor, functional

medicine nutritionist at Connor

Wellness Clinic (connorwellnessclinic.

com). “This does not have to be done

at any particular time of day. I tell my

patients that breakfast is not the most

important meal of the day. If you’re

hungry in the morning, eat breakfast,

but avoid sugary, processed foods,

and focus on whole foods consisting

of healthy fats, clean proteins, and

unprocessed carbohydrates. If you’re not

hungry in the morning, then wait to eat

until you are. This is probably one of the

best golden rules: Only eat when you are

hungry. With that said, it's a good idea

to [meal prep], so when you are hungry

your meal is ready.”

MYTH #6 Sugar-free is

healthier for you.

“Though a sugar-free food item doesn’t

contain sugar and is thereby ‘safer’ for

diabetic blood sugar regulation, it would

be a stretch to call it ‘healthy,’” says Devon

L. Gaston, DC, MS, DACNB, founder of

Passport 2 Health (passport2health.

co). “These items contain several toxic

chemicals—aspartame, sucralose, and

saccharin—which all bind to receptors

in the brain and exacerbate ADD,

ADHD, and chronic pain syndromes,

like fibromyalgia. Plus, you can still

potentially have an insulin response,

i.e., gain weight from sugar-free foods.

In addition, high sugar or chemicalladen

diets are pro-inflammatory and

contribute to increasing systemic

inflation, which can lead to excess weight

gain and chronically inflamed joints.”

MYTH #7 A low-carb diet is the

best way to lose

weight.

“Carbohydrates are one of the three

macronutrients that we need to survive,

along with proteins and fat,” Crivellone

says. “While cutting out some carbs may

help with weight loss, labeling all carbs

as ‘bad’ and/or as ‘fattening’ is a harmful

myth. Those that we do want to limit

from our diet include starchy and/or

sugary food items—think cookies, cakes,

potato chips, etc. By choosing the ‘right

carbs,’ such as vegetables, fruit, legumes,

and whole grains like oats, brown rice,

and whole grain bread, we provide our

bodies with fiber and vitamins. So,

rather than cutting carbohydrates from

your diet entirely, focus on the quality

and quantity of the carbohydrates you

consume.”

LOCATED IN:

South Lake Tahoe.

DISTANCE: 11.3 miles out

and back.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: This

trail begins on the widely

popular Echo Lakes

Trail, so expect crowds.

Weather permitting, bring

a swimsuit and plenty of

sunscreen, as you’ll be

surrounded by enticingly

beautiful lakes all the way

up. The terrain is rocky, so

wear shoes with traction,

bring layers, and (as

always) protect our trails by

practicing Leave No Trace.

WHY WE LOVE IT: This is one of

the most picturesque areas

of Desolation Wilderness.

Surrounded by glaciated

granite, alpine lakes, and

within easy access of

Highway 50, it’s tough to

get more for your buck

than this.

FUEL UP: Grab a madeto-order

mocha, “Lost

Traveler” (hazelnut latte

with chocolate drizzle), or

perhaps a pour-over; and

fill your belly with a beloved

breakfast BLT, burrito, or lox

bagel at Foxwood Coffee &

Tea (foxwoodcoffee.com),

directly off the freeway

in Shingle Springs. With a

cool cafe vibe and spacious

patio, it’s the perfect place

for a pre-hike pick-me-up.

TAKE THE

(COLD)

PLUNGE

Have you heard of Wim

Hof, aka, the ice man?

If you haven’t, he’s the

pioneer of cold-water

therapy and has been

sharing his knowledge

of the cold plunge for

years. Here are just

some of the health

benefits.


IMMUNE STRENGTH.

Because of the

dramatic shift in

temperature, your

body begins forming

more white blood

cells, which helps

strengthen your

overall immunity over

time.


IMPROVED

CARDIOVASCULAR

HEALTH.

Cold water causes

your capillaries, veins,

and arteries to get

flushed out.


INCREASED LIBIDO.

Cold water

increases estrogen

and testosterone

production, effectively

increasing your libido.

Did we hear a bow

chicka wow wow?


LOWER STRESS LEVELS.

Cold water causes a

decrease in heart rate

and an endorphin kick,

which lasts even after

you’ve warmed back

up. Some studies show

this can have longterm

reductions on

stress levels.

you have a

favorite trail in the

region you’d like to see

The Gift of Kids Daycare and Preschool

Lic# 09616199, 093616198, 093620102

I would like to thank everyone for their vote for #1 Best Preschool

7 years in a row, and continuing to trust us with your precious

children. I love being part of this community and helping children

learn and grow.

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 (who is a Chico State gratduate and is now a teacher at

The Gift of Kids), 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 and Preschool is now located off Latrobe 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 32 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 program.

Thank you to all the readers of Style Magazine for

voting us the #1 Best Distillery in the region!

The Sacramento area is rich in historical libation

with saloons and drinking establishments that were

plentiful during the gold rush era and through the turn

of the century. However, 1920 marked the beginning

of prohibition, a time when the legal manufacture

of alcohol was halted but the demand for spirits

continued. Sacramento did not give up its libation so

easily and, as a community, rebelled against the new

law. At a time when alcohol was illegal, Sacramento

was rumored to have been one of the easiest places

to get drink in the State of California.

While 1933 marked the end of prohibition, it wasn’t

until 2014 when spirits were once again legally

produced in Sacramento County. Gold River

Distillery is proud to be the first distillery to open in

Sacramento County since prohibition was enacted

almost 100 years ago in 1920.

We produce small-batch spirits including vodka,

gin, absinthe, corn whiskey, California Bourbon, and

the world's first malted rice whiskey. We invite you

to come to our tasting room to try our spirits for

yourself!

us the #1 Best Home Décor Store and one of the Best Gift

Stores by the readers of Style-Folsom/EDH region!

As a young person, Bobbi Eddy always dreamed of having

a store. She wanted a place where she could gather

things she loved and create an environment where people

could shop and feel happy. In 2005, almost by accident,

she came across a for sale listing for a small store

in the Folsom Historic District that sold painted furniture

and vintage decor. She and her partner Pam decided to

take the plunge and purchased Not Too Shabby and, as

they say, the rest is history.

Today customers can come in to Not Too Shabby, Folsom

and Not Too Shabby Studio, Roseville and experience

the happy Bobbi has created. The stores are full of items

personally selected by her and curated to give those who

enter a sense of joy and inspiration and the confidence

to transform their home environment into a happy place

too. Many of Bobbi’s favorite items are presented here,

along with Chalk Paint ® , Iron Orchid Designs and workshops.

Now customers have the chance to visit the stores

virtually at the time of day that works best for their busy

lives. Here’s to the pursuit of happy—come see us!

Each customer has different needs, and each deserves

As an independent agency, we represent several top

Our goal is to always put our customers’ needs first. We

strive to earn your trust by giving you honest answers

Cool

by TERRY CARROLL

Stuff

I decided to wander away from

my audio gear and found myself

in the kitchen, of course! Here

are three best-in-class products

you’ll find in our area and use

almost, if not, every day!

Philips 4300 Fully

Automatic Espresso

Machine

I’m now a barista, and

a pretty darn good one,

according to my wife—all

because I bought this

machine. From coffee

to cappuccinos to espresso and more, the Philips

4300 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine delivers.

It also stores your drinks in its memory, grinds

beans, and creates coffee shop-quality drinks at

the push of a button; it even foams milk! (Use 2%

for the best foam, IMO). Best of all, it will pay for

itself and keep you out of those long coffee shop

lines. $899, available at Crate & Barrel

Vertical Rabbit

Corkscrew

While I love a screw

cap, most wines are

still corked. Honestly,

though, I just want

my wine with as little

work occurring as

possible. The first time I used the Rabbit, I was

astonished—and I created a bit of a problem. My

wife came home to find me in the kitchen with 11

bottles of wine open. When she asked me why, I

just stood there, babbled “…so easy to open…” If

you drink wine and don’t own one, the question

is, “wine not?” $59.99, available at Total Wine

& More

Zyliss Easy Pull

Chopper

OK, I love to cook, but

I don’t like to prepare

everything. I’m always

looking for shortcuts

when it comes to

chopping but cleaning a

food processor takes longer than cooking a meal!

A friend mentioned this little device, and now

I give them out as gifts: It’s the BEST KITCHEN

GADGET EVER! Pull the string and chop anything.

Buy one—you’ll thank me! $39.95, available at

Sur La Table

ASK THE

EXPERT

by EMILY PETER-COREY

Q: WHAT SHOULD I BE

DOING IN THE FALL FOR

A SUCCESSFUL SUMMER

GARDEN?

A: Simply put, anything and everything

that will maximize the total energy

stored in each plant and tree. A few

focuses include:


Supply nutrients that promote root,

trunk, and branch development while

Out of Office

Home Workspace Solutions

by KOURTNEY JASON

A home office should

be an inspiring place

to spend your time

while also showcasing

your personality and

interests.



While some

employees

have returned

to the office fulltime,

most of us

have been able

to embrace a

fully remote or

hybrid schedule.

Considering we’re

more than two

years into the

WFH life, it’s worth

the investment to

make your home

office inspiring

and comfortable.

11 Years Won

Since 2011


| home & garden |

Cathy Tonks, founder

and interior designer at

Designs With You in Mind

(designswithyouinmind.

net), says many of us have

spaces in our homes

that we don’t use to

their fullest potential.

“The room pictured

to the right—now a

luxurious and inviting

contemporary home

office—was once a dining

room that hadn't been

used in 11 years!” she

says. “Don’t let spaces go

unused—it’s time to start

getting the most out of

them, and this might

mean transforming

an existing space into

something else. Once

you let go of how a room

‘should be’ used, the

possibilities are endless. You might even end up with a new home office, too.”

Lauren Jacobsen, principal designer and owner of Lauren Jacobsen

Interiors (laurenjacobseninteriors.com), says the past couple of years has

given many of us a pause for thought about the importance of a home office

setup. “Working from home is now a fixture in many of our lives, and now’s

the moment to revisit how your work space fits into your home,” she says.

“A home office should be an inspiring place to spend your time, while also

showcasing your personality and interests.”

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

“One of the greatest things about working

from home is being able to move your

office outside when the weather is nice,”

says Whitney Critchley, creative director

at Terra Outdoor Living (terraoutdoor.

com). Here, she shares everything needed

for a functional alfresco office.

1. Comfortable seating. “When you need to

settle in and focus on work, it’s important

to have the right chair—[one with a] strong,

well-proportioned frame and supportive seat

that [works] for office hours, and even outdoor

dining,” says Critchley.

2. Easy-to-clean surfaces. “If you’re anything

like me, you need space to spread out and snacks

to keep you going while you work. Ceramic-style

glass tabletops are smooth, expansive, and

remarkably easy to clean, so you always have a

fresh surface. Infused with opaque color, they

offer the attractive look of ceramic with the

exceptional durability of tempered glass.”

3. Zoom-friendly backdrop. “Background

envy is for real. Make your setup the talk of

the Slack channel by positioning yourself in

front of bright blooms, a sparkling pool, or a

lush wall of greenery. Natural light is the most

flattering when you’re on camera. A movable

umbrella will let you keep the sun in front of

you, so the illumination is soft and even. If the

weather is uncooperative or your kids have

commandeered the pool, download a backdrop

to set the perfect scene.

HOME OFFICE DESIGN TIPS

• Think through your daily habits and design an office that will set you up for

success.

• Purchase the correct type of desk for your work style: traditional, standing, or

hybrid. Zuri has some fantastic contemporary options.

• Consider angling your desk to look out of the room, instead of at a wall.

• Be sure to pick the right chair that marries comfort and ergonomics with style.

• Try integrating a printer into your desk design so it doesn’t stick out like a sore

thumb.

• Incorporate any necessary power outlets into your design. Hint: Desks located

in the center of the room will need outlets in the floor. We suggest purchasing a

lower cost rug in case you need to cut a hole for access to the outlet.

• Ensure each piece of furniture has a distinct purpose.

• Consider storage solutions and stay organized with bookcases, file cabinets, and

more.

• Incorporate an interesting background for Zoom calls.

• Customize your office and make it feel special with curated artwork. Bonus points

if it’s local!

Even when space is

limited, choosing a desk

that’s a beautiful piece

in its own right makes

for an inspiring space to

spend your days.


When designing a home office, Jacobsen

always starts with the piece of furniture that

will likely dominate the room: the desk. “Even

when space is limited, choosing a desk that’s

a beautiful piece in its own right makes for a

[motivating place] to spend your days,” she says.

“Positioning the desk to face a view or a piece

of artwork is a simple way to incorporate visual

texture and stimulation.”

Jacobsen also suggests selecting a spot

with natural light to improve focus and

saving space for a comfortable accent chair

or bench so others can visit throughout the

workday. “If your work area is incorporated

into part of another room, being able to

clear everything away at the end of the

day can be essential, which often calls for

hidden desk ideas,” she says.

And while an office may be a place for

work, this doesn’t mean that it should lack

personality. “Adding a point of interest that

highlights a favorite hobby often gives the

space a more personal touch and makes for a

more enjoyable place to work,” she says.

The Trax

Taproom &

Kitchen

by RYAN MARTINEZ | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE

Conductor Sliders


From this, a modest but diverse

menu that pairs perfectly with

a tavern-style ambience was

born—think pub grub elevated

to foodie standards.


64 stylemg.com | OCTOBER 2022 | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags

The expression of human creativity takes many forms.

But food, by any standard, is arguably one of the best.

Although the cuisine at Trax in Roseville isn’t trying to

be the culinary centerpiece of artistic expression, the

space itself is clearly a local artist hub.

As my wife and I walked up Vernon Street, live

music bellowed from outside the historic Tower Theatre. A crowd

ebbed and flowed as people stopped to listen to the talented young

musicians before entering their chosen establishment—and Trax was

clearly the spot.

We walked into the former diner, wandered through the crowd opposite

the stage where another musician filled the air with tunes, and found the


Ahi Poke Nachos

last two remaining seats at the bar.

A local winery was doing a tasting,

much to the excitement of my wife

who quickly found one she liked. For

me, however, a difficult choice ensued.

With an impressive list of 30 (mostly

local) craft brews, Trax is a beer-lover’s

paradise. After a great recommendation

from our friendly beertender, Cas, we

were set for appetizers.

The menu has a surprisingly large

variety for being so small. When we spoke

to head chef, Julia, about the offerings,

she accredited the large diversity to her

years in Australia where cultural fusion

is at its core. From this, a modest but

diverse menu that pairs perfectly with a

tavern-style ambience was born—think

pub grub elevated to foodie standards.

We started with the ahi poke nachos.

The crispy wonton chips and spicy mayo,

Asian Chicken Salad

cilantro, green onions, and fresh tuna

were everything we hoped for. While we

wanted far more tuna, it was a beautiful

start that paired nicely with our white

wine and IPA.

For a bigger bite, we chose the sliders

and Asian chicken salad. The former

came as a pair, perfect for one person,

post-appetizer, or to share with another

entrée. The salad was a nice addition

to the sliders—refreshing, sweet, and

surprisingly filling.

As we enjoyed our meal, we started

chatting to two visiting artists showing

their work at Blue Line Arts. Like us,

they chose Trax for the wide beer

selection and the simple menu, which

we discussed at length together and all

came to the same conclusion.

While it’s great to have a huge menu,

Michelin-level cuisine, and complicated

recipes, at the end of the day, sometimes

the best thing is a simple, well-made

meal, a good brew, and a wonderful chat

about the great things our region has

to offer. By that standard, Trax is a true

work of art.

Why is The Ring of Fire in Camino my top BBQ spot? I’ll tell you why! The

husband-and-wife owners, Ken and Rebecca, have accomplished something

not every smokehouse has: the perfect combination of superb Southern

BBQ with a side of incredible customer service. Start with their Queso

& Chips—fresh, crispy, white corn tortilla chips served with house-made

green chili queso dip. I would eat it with a spoon, but I think I’d get a “bless

your heart.” Another appetizer to try is The Hog Pile—a perfect name for a

perfect plate. Crispy tater tots smothered in that same amazing queso with a

generous portion of pulled pork that’s smoked low and slow. Next up? Meat!

Brisket, pulled pork, chicken, tri tip, ribs, hot links…I know, it's hard to

decide. Another decision looms after that one. What side(s) should you get?

I recommend the Southern Style Potato Salad and Kicked Up Coleslaw.

They also have fries, baked beans, mac & cheese, and salad. In the mood for

meat and bread, aka, a sandwich? They have those, too! Don’t worry, they

come with a side of your choosing. If y’all don’t mind sauce glazed over your

face and hands, grab the crispy fried wings…and a few piles of napkins. I

reckon you’ll need ’em. — by JULIE RYAN

Summer has come and gone, so

now’s the time to fill your belly

autumnal eats. Read on for

some seasonal recipes you can

recreate at home.

1 egg

2 tbsp. heavy cream

8 oz. wheel of brie

*3 tbsp. apple pumpkin butter, divided

2 tbsp. candied pecans, chopped

1 sheet puffed pastry, defrosted according

to package instructions

by PAULINE ARROYO

Apple Pumpkin Butter Baked Brie

Recipe submitted by Myka Estates, 3405 Carson Court,

Placerville, 530-644-3474, mykaestates.com

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking

sheet with parchment paper. Mix the egg

and cream together to make an egg wash;

set aside. With a sharp pointed paring knife,

cut a circle around the edge of the top of

the brie, 1/8-1/4 inch from the side all the way

around, about halfway down into the middle

of the wheel. Slide the knife under the circle

you’ve cut and cut across the center to

scoop out the cheese, removing it like the

top of a carved pumpkin. Fill the cavity with

two tablespoons of apple pumpkin butter

and chopped candied pecans. Place the

brie that you scooped out back on top.

Fall Gnocchi

Recipe submitted by Reds’ Bistro, 3645 Taylor Road, Loomis,

916-259-4362, redsinloomis.com

1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled

and diced

4 egg yolks

2 tbsp. tarragon, finely chopped

Salt & pepper, to taste

2/3 cup flour

Boil and simmer potatoes until

tender. Strain and let drain for a few

minutes. Mill potatoes. Mix in egg

yolks, tarragon, and salt and pepper

to taste. The mixture should be wet.

Gently knead in the flour in small

increments. Pour flour into potato

Place the brie, cut side down, on the thawed pastry

sheet; the pastry should be a square large enough

to wrap the brie tight, without too much excess

dough or not enough to seal tight. Make four

cuts in the pastry starting from the brie to

the edge of the corner. Fold each side
