Style Magazine - Readers Choice Awards - El Dorado County Foothills 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 |<br />

What’s your favorite season?<br />

I recently took an unofficial<br />

poll and—with the exception<br />

of my spring-loving sister<br />

(who apparently isn’t<br />

affected by allergies!)—<br />

received a resounding<br />

response for “autumn!” This didn’t come as a<br />

huge surprise, especially living in this area. The<br />

kaleidoscope of colors; cool, crisp mornings that<br />

call for cozy cardigans; abundance of alfresco<br />

activities (don’t miss Big Crush, Auburn Wine, Ale,<br />

& Food Festival, or Folsom Family Expo; turn to<br />

page 30 for dates and details); and cornucopia of<br />

seasonal flavors to savor (apples, pumpkins, and<br />

pies, oh my!), makes it easy to fall for fall.<br />

And in this month’s issue, our biggest of the<br />

year, we’re celebrating the season—along with<br />

all our region’s small businesses (and business<br />

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

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

picture snapped locally and our favorite leaf-peeping locales, including East<br />

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

and crimson-colored trees.<br />

“There are<br />

three things<br />

that I’ve<br />

learned never<br />

to discuss<br />

with people:<br />

religion,<br />

politics, and<br />

the Great<br />

Pumpkin.”<br />

—Linus Van Pelt, It’s<br />

the Great Pumpkin,<br />

Charlie Brown<br />

Leaving the leaves behind, turn to page 68 for some<br />

easy, autumn-inspired recipes utilizing the cream of<br />

the harvest crop, including a butternut squash risotto<br />

you’ll be eager to reheat…and have on repeat.<br />

In honor of the most hallowed holiday—the one<br />

where consuming colossal amounts of candy and<br />

donning creepy costumes is A-OK—we asked area<br />

distilleries for their “boo”ziest, most spirited cocktails.<br />

Pick your poison (I think I’ll start with the Midorispiked,<br />

freaky-looking “Frankenstein”) on page 72. We<br />

also share some fun, festive Halloween happenings in<br />

The 10 Spot (page 16) that are sure to (pumpkin) spice<br />

up the season.<br />

Around here, it wouldn’t be October without our<br />

annual “Best of ” feature, where we announce the<br />

winners of this year’s <strong>Readers</strong>’ <strong>Choice</strong> <strong>Awards</strong>. It ’s<br />

a personal favorite because I always discover new<br />

(literally) winning places around town to support—like<br />

Pasty Pies of the World and Exhilaration Station—and am reminded of all the talented,<br />

innovative entrepreneurs our region is teeming with. Find out if your favorite people<br />

and places made the list starting on page 51.<br />

There’s much more in store, too, including an inspiring, informative piece about<br />

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

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

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

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

autumn season itself. Enjoy!<br />

?“Practical Magic. Though not<br />

technically a Halloween movie,<br />

there’s a Halloween reference; plus,<br />

I’m a sucker for rom-coms and Aidan<br />

Quinn.”—Wendy Sipple<br />

What’s your<br />

favorite<br />

Halloween<br />

movie?<br />

“Hocus Pocus is such a classic—I<br />

watch it every October. I hope the<br />

sequel doesn’t disappoint!”<br />

—Kourtney Jason<br />

“Beetlejuice—Tim Burton’s brilliant,<br />

comedic, ghoulish, whimsical portrayal<br />

of the afterlife. It’s gross, freaky, and<br />

funny all in one.”—Gary Zsigo<br />

“Watching It's the Great Pumpkin,<br />

Charlie Brown is a family tradition.<br />

Nothing beats hanging with the kiddos,<br />

eating popcorn and candy, and<br />

watching this Halloween favorite.”<br />

—Theresa Arnold-Hale<br />

“Although I love a good scary movie, I<br />

have to say Hubie Halloween is one<br />

I could watch multiple times. Don’t<br />

judge.”—Julie Ryan<br />

“Growing up, Hocus Pocus was THE<br />

Halloween movie and forever changed<br />

the way I look at Morton Salt. The<br />

classic story line, the fantasy elements,<br />

and the way it makes use of the<br />

range of emotions makes it an all-time<br />

favorite.”—Ryan Martinez<br />

THE ROAD BEAT<br />

In this month’s “The Road Beat” column, auto<br />

aficionado and local resident Mitchell Weitzman<br />

takes the <strong>2022</strong> Volkswagen Golf GTI for a spin<br />

and shares his honest review. “Affordable and<br />

practical with great performance but a serving<br />

of bad tech” is just a sneak peak of what he has<br />

to say about it.<br />

Adrian Blanco Jewelry (adrianblancojewelry.com) was named the <strong>2022</strong><br />

Small Business of the Year by the Sixth Assembly District. Assemblyman<br />

Kevin Kiley said: “Adrian doesn’t just own and operate an award-winning<br />

jewelry store, but he is also one of the most active members of the<br />

Folsom community and regularly gives back by supporting local causes<br />

and nonprofits. His dedication to our region is unmatched...”<br />

FLB Entertainment Center (flb365.<br />

center, arcade, restaurant, awardwinning<br />

sports bar, pro shop, and<br />

bowling center in the region to launch<br />

revolutionary, fast-paced attraction,<br />

where the gutter becomes the target<br />

and is lit with different areas to hit<br />

and play off, is built to extend the fun<br />

BEATING BREAST CANCER<br />

by PAULINE ARROYO | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE<br />

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month,<br />

we’re highlighting four women in our<br />

community who have fought and/or continue to<br />

fight the disease. Keep reading to discover their<br />

important stories and words of wisdom.<br />

Tina Macuha<br />

Good Day Sacramento anchor Tina<br />

Macuha was diagnosed in March 2009<br />

with stage 0 breast cancer and had a<br />

double mastectomy that April. Tina has a<br />

family history of the disease including her<br />

grandmother, four cousins, and mother.<br />

“My mom died of breast cancer in the<br />

early ’80s, so I was diligent on getting<br />

mammograms right after she passed<br />

away.” After deciding to share the news<br />

with viewers, the outpouring of love<br />

and support was immediate. “I received<br />

emails from women who said they put<br />

off their mammograms and seeing me<br />

go through this made them schedule<br />

[an] appointment.”<br />

What advice do you have for other<br />

women?<br />

Bring someone with you to your<br />

appointments so they can take notes and<br />

help ask questions. When we're stressed<br />

and overwhelmed with this diagnosis,<br />

we don't hear what the doctor is saying<br />

because we're in fear mode. Always ask<br />

questions and be an advocate for yourself!<br />

What has this journey taught you?<br />

I've learned I can reach out to others for<br />

support and do what it takes to be healthy. I<br />

feel so fortunate to have family and friends<br />

who held me up during a difficult time.<br />

This journey taught me blessings come in<br />

many ways.<br />

Karly Hernandez<br />

Jackson resident Karly Hernandez is a<br />

dedicated wife and loving mother to two<br />

daughters. The month after her brother<br />

passed away, in May 2021, she found a<br />

lump in her left breast. That September she<br />

was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer.<br />

Though she initially experienced hurdles<br />

obtaining insurance coverage and care,<br />

she found a multifaceted approach from<br />

Marshall Medical Center. “Marshall has been<br />

great. They’re very attentive; as a questioner<br />

by nature, they answer all [of mine]. I feel<br />

so blessed to be accepted by them.” Now<br />

cancer-free, Karly continues to undergo<br />

chemotherapy. While in treatment, she<br />

makes sure to visit and get to know all the<br />

other patients in the cancer center.<br />

What advice do you have for other<br />

women?<br />

Listen to your body, listen to your gut,<br />

and pursue it. Mindset is everything.<br />

Although it’s scary, doctors and resources<br />

are there to help you get through it. I am<br />

very thankful for everyone and to God for<br />

pulling me through.<br />

What has this journey taught you?<br />

Appreciate the small moments. I’m<br />

thankful to be here with my babies and<br />

grateful to get to see them grow up…to be<br />

there for first days of school and to read<br />

[them] bedtime stories.<br />

Ashley McMahon<br />

Ashley McMahon beat stage 1 invasive ductal<br />

carcinoma in 2017 and is currently fighting a return<br />

of metastatic breast cancer throughout her body.<br />

Both diagnoses were a shock and have included<br />

intense treatments, such as radiation, surgery,<br />

chemotherapy, bone infusions, and oxygen. But<br />

through it all, Ashley remains determined. “I have<br />

had an amazing support network of family and<br />

friends both times. I have so many prayer warriors<br />

looking out for me…I have also chosen to be a<br />

fighter and stay positive.”<br />

What advice do you have for other women?<br />

Be vigilant. My initial diagnosis happened because<br />

I stayed on top of things. Ask questions and go<br />

for checkups; don't be afraid. You may feel alone,<br />

but you aren't. There are so many of us out there<br />

fighting cancer, and the bond you can form with<br />

others fighting and surviving is special.<br />

What has this journey taught you?<br />

Pay attention to your body. Live for today and learn<br />

from yesterday but don't live there. If you have<br />

plans, make them happen; don't wait for anyone<br />

else to make your life what you want it to be.<br />

Carol Garcia<br />

Carol is a 24-year breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed<br />

at age 39, thanks to a proactive gynecologist<br />

who listened to her concerns and helped her<br />

find the right treatment, she underwent four<br />

surgeries including a double mastectomy to<br />

become cancer-free. As with many women, her<br />

diagnosis came as a shock. “I thought, ‘I don’t<br />

have time for this.’ I have two girls to raise, and<br />

I was working full-time.” Now, however, cancer<br />

care takes precedence in her life. Through the<br />

Auburn Community Cancer Endowment Fund<br />

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

and the Placer Breast<br />

Cancer Foundation (placerbreastcancerfoundation.<br />

org), she has dedicated herself to raising money<br />

for cancer research, care, and education.<br />

What advice do you have for other women?<br />

Don't put off getting mammograms. Even if your<br />

insurance won't pay for them, there are no-cost<br />

resources available. Early detection has come a<br />

long way.<br />

What has this journey taught you?<br />

Slow down, listen to your body, and don’t get<br />

overwhelmed. We live in a high-paced world and<br />

sometimes you just need to take a moment for<br />

yourself. Spend time with people you love and<br />

don’t get caught up in the rush.<br />

Face the Music<br />

Spotlight on Local Bands<br />

by BELLA NOLEN<br />

What better way to gather as a community and<br />

support small businesses than listening to live music<br />

at local venues? Below are some of the region’s best<br />

bands making waves locally and across the country.<br />

Bad Mother Nature<br />

badmothernature.com<br />

What’s the story behind the band’s<br />

name?<br />

The idea came from a lyric Axel wrote down<br />

before the band even started. [Then] we<br />

took a straw vote on social media, and the<br />

response to Bad Mother Nature was pretty<br />

positive.<br />

What do you find yourself singing<br />

about in most of your songs?<br />

We write a lot in metaphors. On the<br />

surface, [it may appear to be] a story about a<br />

character or event, but we’re actually talking<br />

about a recent news event or something<br />

involving our own band’s experiences.<br />

What does your songwriting process<br />

look like?<br />

Initially, songs were written by Axel or Ryan;<br />

they would each write lyrics on their own<br />

and share them with the band when they<br />

were ready. More recently, however, we’ve<br />

starting writing songs as a group.<br />

This four-piece rock band performs up,<br />

down, and around the region at clubs and<br />

dive bars, including top spots like Ace of<br />

Spades, the Viper Room in Hollywood, and<br />

House of Blues in Anaheim. Described as<br />

“refining a balance between driving guitar<br />

riffs, progressive yet nuanced piano licks,<br />

and buttery vocal harmony melodies,” they<br />

bring a distinctive, unforgettable sound<br />

wherever they go.<br />

Members: Axel Ahrens and Corey Allred<br />

(guitarist and bassist duo), Ryan Allred<br />

(pianist), and Jon McCann (drummer)<br />

How long has the band been together<br />

and how was it formed?<br />

Six years. In 2016, Corey’s brother, Ryan,<br />

joined the band to play piano, [while]<br />

helping with songwriting and vocals. When<br />

[our friend] Sam left the band, we found our<br />

drummer, Jon, who joined in 2018.<br />

Who are some of your musical<br />

influences?<br />

Pink Floyd, <strong>El</strong>ton John, Led Zeppelin,<br />

Sturgill Simpson, Kaleo, Hozier, Nirvana,<br />

Greta Van Fleet, The Eagles, Fleetwood<br />

Mac, and The Beatles.<br />

Ariel Jean Band<br />

ariealjean.com<br />

Known for their unique sound as well as<br />

the fact they’re a sister trio, the Ariel Jean<br />

Band is a two-time Sammie-nominated<br />

group for “Country Artist of the Year”<br />

and has multiple CDs and a music video<br />

under their belt. What’s more, they’re<br />

known for giving back to the community<br />

by performing at local charity events and<br />

donating to families in need.<br />

Members: Ariel Jean (songwriter, singer),<br />

Amber Joy (singer), Aubrey Anne (singer),<br />

Louis Brazil (drummer), John Gormley (bass<br />

player), and Andy Gomez (lead guitarist)<br />

How long has the band been together<br />

and how was it formed?<br />

Five years ago, I was inspired to form a<br />

band to showcase my original music. My<br />

sisters, Amber Joy and Aubrey Anne,<br />

joined after I established the band and<br />

became lead singers as well. We’re a family<br />

band, as my dad and husband also join us<br />

on stage.<br />

Who are some of your musical<br />

influences?<br />

Miranda Lambert, John Mayer, Chris<br />

Stapleton, and Maren Morris.<br />

What’s the story behind the band’s<br />

name?<br />

When I first started out, I would use my<br />

the band was formed, we switched it to<br />

the Ariel Jean Band.<br />

What do you find yourself singing<br />

about in most of your songs?<br />

Life events [or] friends saying something<br />

funny or sad. Some of it has just been<br />

creative ideas I’ve gotten while running or<br />

in the shower! Recently, I’ve noticed that<br />

my songs are inspired by my amazing<br />

family and friends.<br />

Manzanita<br />

themanzanita.com<br />

What does your songwriting process<br />

look like?<br />

It’s always different, but usually the title<br />

and concept of the song comes first (AKA<br />

the “hook”); the melody and verses often<br />

come from me sitting down with my<br />

guitar and singing along.<br />

Popular indie-folk band Manzanita blends<br />

Americana and country music to create<br />

catchy melodies and powerful harmonies<br />

that inspire and delight crowds across<br />

the region. Original songwriting and<br />

storytelling contribute to the group’s<br />

freshness and comprehensive feel. Check<br />

them out on October 2 and 23 at Bishop's<br />

Pumpkin Farm and October 13 at the<br />

Orangevale Farmers’ Market.<br />

What does your songwriting process<br />

look like?<br />

We almost always start with strumming<br />

the acoustic. When I come up with a<br />

chord progression or a riff that I like, I start<br />

Rowland & Tumblin’<br />

kylerowlandandblues.com<br />

adhering ideas based around it all. Then,<br />

I bring the rough tune to Aaron, and he<br />

experiments with different instrumentation<br />

until one feels right. He often comes up with<br />

a signature lick that helps define the song.<br />

Members: Nick Foster (lead vocals, guitar,<br />

drums, harmonica) and Aaron Shively<br />

(pedal steel, vocals, electric guitar, mandolin)<br />

How long has the band been together<br />

and how was it formed?<br />

Eight years now. We met at an open mic<br />

night at the Country Club Saloon in Loomis.<br />

I (Nick) saw Aaron onstage with Nikko<br />

Marker, a good friend and original member<br />

of Manzanita. Then I went onstage and<br />

played a couple of original tunes. Aaron<br />

approached me after and jokingly said,<br />

“You’re in the band!” so I said, “Okay!”<br />

Who are some of your musical<br />

influences?<br />

For Nick, Neil Young, Ryan Adams, Bob<br />

Dylan, Guy Clark, and The Doors. For<br />

Aaron, Humankind, Eric Heywood, Buddy<br />

Emmons, Old Slow Hand, and Speedy West.<br />

What’s the story behind the band’s<br />

name?<br />

Manzanita is a beautiful, tough, evergreen<br />

shrub that thrives here in the foothills. One<br />

night sitting around a fire with some friends,<br />

someone suggested Manzanita, and it stuck.<br />

What do you find yourself singing<br />

about in most of your songs?<br />

We have songs about love, sitting on the<br />

river, staying out ‘til the sun comes up,<br />

or appreciating the simple things in life.<br />

Oftentimes, there is a story arc in our<br />

songs like in “Death in Arizona.”<br />

This band performs a bit of everything—<br />

from loud and energetic Chicago jazz to<br />

Texas blues and a dash of West Coast swing.<br />

Named “Blues Harmonica Player of the<br />

Year” and “Blues New Artist of the Year” by<br />

West Coast Blues Hall of Fame, Rowland &<br />

Tumblin’ pours it all into their lively music.<br />

Members: Kyle Rowland (vocals, harp,<br />

guitar), Kenny Marchese (guitarist), Mike<br />

Philips (bass), and Frank Maraglia (drums)<br />

How long has the band been together<br />

and how was it formed?<br />

Kenny and I (Kyle) started it in 2010. I<br />

received a call from the Monterey Bay<br />

Blues Festival asking if I had a band. At<br />

the time I didn’t but told them I did to<br />

get into the festival. Once I hung up, I<br />

realized, “I better get a band!”<br />

Who are some of your musical<br />

influences?<br />

James Cotton, Papa Lightfoot, and Lazy<br />

Lester, among many others from that era.<br />

What’s the story behind the band’s<br />

name?<br />

For a while, we were The Kyle Rowland<br />

Blues Band. I wanted to rebrand, and<br />

there is an old blues song that multiple<br />

artists have done or sang about called<br />

“Rollin’ Tumblin,” [so] I used my last name<br />

as a play on words [to subtly nod] to our<br />

influences.<br />

What do you find yourself singing<br />

about in most of your songs?<br />

Real life experiences. Music is a spiritual<br />

experience, so everything the band plays<br />

has meaning behind it.<br />

What does your songwriting process<br />

look like?<br />

It kind of just comes to us. Whether it’s a<br />

situation we went through with a friend<br />

or something they’re going through, it<br />

helps inspire a song.<br />

Food<br />

Rules<br />

Nutrition Myths,<br />

Debunked<br />

by KOURTNEY JASON<br />

Having studied nutrition over the years, Heather<br />

Crivellone, a personal trainer and nutritionist at<br />

Roseville Health & Wellness Center (rosevillehwc.<br />

com), has had the opportunity to help hundreds<br />

of people lose weight and regain their<br />

confidence. “I have been asked numerous<br />

questions over the years regarding the latest<br />

diet ‘fads’ and how to keep off those pesky<br />

pounds,” she says. Here, Crivellone—along<br />

with four more experts—tackles some top<br />

nutrition myths with a dash of science<br />

and a pinch of common sense.<br />

MYTH #1 Skinny is healthy.<br />

“This is one of the biggest lies<br />

out there,” Crivellone says. “Just because someone is<br />

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

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

inside and whether you've been living a strong and healthy lifestyle. Instead of<br />

focusing on getting ‘skinny,’ we should all be focusing on getting fit and strong<br />

to live a long, healthy, and productive life.”<br />

MYTH #2 Fats make you fat.<br />

“Good sources of fat are very beneficial for you and keep<br />

you satiated for longer,” says Isidora Marín and Ryan Martinez, co-owners<br />

at Bikram Yoga Folsom (bikramyogafolsom.com). “Some good examples are<br />

avocados, olive oil, plain Greek yogurt, butter, and nuts.”<br />

MYTH #3 Drinking fruit juice is a good way to increase fruit<br />

in your diet.<br />

“Fruit juice is high in added sugars and an<br />

easy way to add more calories to your diet<br />

than necessary,” Crivellone says. “A cup<br />

of fruit juice can have as much as 40<br />

grams of sugar, which is equivalent<br />

to 10 teaspoons! Consuming too<br />

much sugar increases your risk of many<br />

chronic diseases, including heart disease,<br />

diabetes, and strokes. One of my biggest<br />

pet peeves—not only as a trainer but as<br />

a mom—is when I see kids constantly<br />

drinking fruit juice. With the obesity<br />

pandemic we have in America, the last<br />

thing we should be doing is teaching our<br />

children that fruit juice is the same as<br />

eating a piece of fruit. Skip the juice and<br />

have a crisp apple or drink water.”<br />

MYTH #4 Your body needs a<br />

cleanse.<br />

“Whether a juice, liver, or colon cleanse, our<br />

bodies already have a built-in detox system.<br />

It’s our lungs, liver, kidneys, and digestive<br />

tract all working together to eliminate<br />

toxins from our bodies. We don’t need to<br />

spend hundreds of dollars for shakes, juices,<br />

and powders to ‘eliminate’ these toxins,”<br />

Crivellone says. “If you really want a ‘detox,’<br />

take a few weeks off from drinking alcohol,<br />

eating processed foods, and get in some<br />

good sweat sessions at the gym. This is the<br />

type of ‘detox’ everyone needs!”<br />

MYTH #5 Breakfast is the<br />

most important meal<br />

of the day.<br />

“By definition, breakfast means to break<br />

the fast,” says Pamela Connor, functional<br />

medicine nutritionist at Connor<br />

Wellness Clinic (connorwellnessclinic.<br />

com). “This does not have to be done<br />

at any particular time of day. I tell my<br />

patients that breakfast is not the most<br />

important meal of the day. If you’re<br />

hungry in the morning, eat breakfast,<br />

but avoid sugary, processed foods,<br />

and focus on whole foods consisting<br />

of healthy fats, clean proteins, and<br />

unprocessed carbohydrates. If you’re not<br />

hungry in the morning, then wait to eat<br />

until you are. This is probably one of the<br />

best golden rules: Only eat when you are<br />

hungry. With that said, it's a good idea<br />

to [meal prep], so when you are hungry<br />

your meal is ready.”<br />

MYTH #6 Sugar-free is<br />

healthier for you.<br />

“Though a sugar-free food item doesn’t<br />

contain sugar and is thereby ‘safer’ for<br />

diabetic blood sugar regulation, it would<br />

be a stretch to call it ‘healthy,’” says Devon<br />

L. Gaston, DC, MS, DACNB, founder of<br />

Passport 2 Health (passport2health.<br />

co). “These items contain several toxic<br />

chemicals—aspartame, sucralose, and<br />

saccharin—which all bind to receptors<br />

in the brain and exacerbate ADD,<br />

ADHD, and chronic pain syndromes,<br />

like fibromyalgia. Plus, you can still<br />

potentially have an insulin response,<br />

i.e., gain weight from sugar-free foods.<br />

In addition, high sugar or chemicalladen<br />

diets are pro-inflammatory and<br />

contribute to increasing systemic<br />

inflation, which can lead to excess weight<br />

gain and chronically inflamed joints.”<br />

MYTH #7 A low-carb diet is the<br />

best way to lose<br />

weight.<br />

“Carbohydrates are one of the three<br />

macronutrients that we need to survive,<br />

along with proteins and fat,” Crivellone<br />

says. “While cutting out some carbs may<br />

help with weight loss, labeling all carbs<br />

as ‘bad’ and/or as ‘fattening’ is a harmful<br />

myth. Those that we do want to limit<br />

from our diet include starchy and/or<br />

sugary food items—think cookies, cakes,<br />

potato chips, etc. By choosing the ‘right<br />

carbs,’ such as vegetables, fruit, legumes,<br />

and whole grains like oats, brown rice,<br />

and whole grain bread, we provide our<br />

bodies with fiber and vitamins. So,<br />

rather than cutting carbohydrates from<br />

your diet entirely, focus on the quality<br />

and quantity of the carbohydrates you<br />

consume.”<br />

LOCATED IN:<br />

South Lake Tahoe.<br />

DISTANCE: 11.3 miles out<br />

and back.<br />

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Moderate.<br />

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: This<br />

trail begins on the widely<br />

popular Echo Lakes<br />

Trail, so expect crowds.<br />

Weather permitting, bring<br />

a swimsuit and plenty of<br />

sunscreen, as you’ll be<br />

surrounded by enticingly<br />

beautiful lakes all the way<br />

up. The terrain is rocky, so<br />

wear shoes with traction,<br />

bring layers, and (as<br />

always) protect our trails by<br />

practicing Leave No Trace.<br />

WHY WE LOVE IT: This is one of<br />

the most picturesque areas<br />

of Desolation Wilderness.<br />

Surrounded by glaciated<br />

granite, alpine lakes, and<br />

within easy access of<br />

Highway 50, it’s tough to<br />

get more for your buck<br />

than this.<br />

FUEL UP: Grab a madeto-order<br />

mocha, “Lost<br />

Traveler” (hazelnut latte<br />

with chocolate drizzle), or<br />

perhaps a pour-over; and<br />

fill your belly with a beloved<br />

breakfast BLT, burrito, or lox<br />

bagel at Foxwood Coffee &<br />

Tea (foxwoodcoffee.com),<br />

directly off the freeway<br />

in Shingle Springs. With a<br />

cool cafe vibe and spacious<br />

patio, it’s the perfect place<br />

for a pre-hike pick-me-up.<br />

TAKE THE<br />

(COLD)<br />

PLUNGE<br />

Have you heard of Wim<br />

Hof, aka, the ice man?<br />

If you haven’t, he’s the<br />

pioneer of cold-water<br />

therapy and has been<br />

sharing his knowledge<br />

of the cold plunge for<br />

years. Here are just<br />

some of the health<br />

benefits.<br />

➊<br />

IMMUNE STRENGTH.<br />

Because of the<br />

dramatic shift in<br />

temperature, your<br />

body begins forming<br />

more white blood<br />

cells, which helps<br />

strengthen your<br />

overall immunity over<br />

time.<br />

➋<br />

IMPROVED<br />

CARDIOVASCULAR<br />

HEALTH.<br />

Cold water causes<br />

your capillaries, veins,<br />

and arteries to get<br />

flushed out.<br />

➌<br />

INCREASED LIBIDO.<br />

Cold water<br />

increases estrogen<br />

and testosterone<br />

production, effectively<br />

increasing your libido.<br />

Did we hear a bow<br />

chicka wow wow?<br />

➍<br />

LOWER STRESS LEVELS.<br />

Cold water causes a<br />

decrease in heart rate<br />

and an endorphin kick,<br />

which lasts even after<br />

you’ve warmed back<br />

up. Some studies show<br />

this can have longterm<br />

reductions on<br />

stress levels.<br />

region you’d like to see<br />

YEARS WON!<br />

The Perri Family is honored to be voted your Best Italian<br />

Restaurant for 16 years in a row! No year has ever been like<br />

this year and the Perri Family thanks you for your support<br />

and your votes.<br />

“During these unprecedented times the family dynamic<br />

switched up a bit,” says Frank Perri, Sr. “My wife and I give<br />

lots of credit to our kids, they performed like champs<br />

during this pandemic and kept up the same consistency<br />

on all the food, with all the takeouts, indoor-outdoor<br />

seating and protocols. We our very proud of our kids.”<br />

Papa Gianni’s Ristorante has been serving up authentic<br />

Italian cuisine using family recipes passed down through<br />

generations. The family owned restaurant offers<br />

an extensive menu based on traditional dishes from<br />

Southern Italy.<br />

From homemade pasta such as ravioli and gnocchi alla<br />

vodka, to hearty meat dishes including pollo parmigiana<br />

and vitello piccata, each entrée is freshly prepared and<br />

made to order. A carefully chosen wine list, including local<br />

and traditional Italian favorites, complement your meal,<br />

and a homemade tiramisu, cannolis, or cheesecake turn<br />

an average night into a special occasion!<br />

The Perri’s believe that family is the key ingredient when<br />

it comes to success, and of course a sincere gratitude to<br />

their loyal patrons.<br />

Buon Appetito,<br />

The Perri Family<br />

Mortgage Broker three years running!<br />

I have been in lending since 1984 but I learn something<br />

new each day. It's important to stay up to date and<br />

educated when working in the ever changing mortgage<br />

industry. Having been in the lending industry for over<br />

30 years, I bring perspectives gathered from a career<br />

in many aspects of both wholesale and retail lending<br />

including loan processing, real estate sales, loan<br />

documents, loan funding, underwriting, quality control<br />

and of course loan originating. With this background,<br />

I offer my clients years of experience and knowledge<br />

gained from assisting hundreds of people in all stages<br />

Barbering consists of catering to Men's haircuts as well as facial<br />

hair trimming and shaving. Throughout the U.S. traditional<br />

barbering is making an enormous comeback. Popular haircut<br />

salons leave out a very important aspect of what a barbershop<br />

is all about: the personal interaction and relationships that<br />

develop with the clients. Lucky's Barbershop & Men's Club<br />

closely mimics those of days gone by, with attention to detail<br />

*The initial Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is currently 5.00% for a new Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC),<br />

and is fixed for the first 5 years of the loan which is called the draw period. After the initial 5 year period,<br />

the APR can change once based on the value of an Index and Margin. The Index is the weekly average<br />

yield on U.S. Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years and the margin is 3.50%. The<br />

current APR for the repayment period is 6.25%. The maximum APR that can apply any time during your<br />

HELOC is 12%. A qualifying transaction consists of the following conditions: (1) the initial APR assumes a<br />

maximum HELOC of $200,000, and a total maximum Loan-to-Value (LTV) of 70% including the new HELOC<br />

and any existing 1st Deed of Trust loan on your residence; (2) your residence securing the HELOC must<br />

be a single-family home that you occupy as your primary residence; (3) if the 1st Deed of Trust loan is<br />

with a lender other than <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> Savings Bank, that loan may not exceed $300,000, have a total<br />

maximum loan-to-value (LTV) of 65% and may not be a revolving line of credit. Additional property<br />

restrictions and requirements apply. All loans are subject to a current appraisal. Property insurance is required<br />

and flood insurance may be required. Rates, APR, terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.<br />

Other conditions apply. A $525 early closure fee will be assessed if the line of credit is closed within three<br />

years from the date of opening. An annual fee of $85 will be assessed on the first anniversary of the HELOC<br />

and annually thereafter during the draw period. Ask for a copy of our “Fixed Rate Home Equity Line of Credit<br />

Disclosure Notice” for additional important information. Other HELOC loans are available under different terms.<br />

Stuff<br />

I decided to wander away from<br />

my audio gear and found myself<br />

in the kitchen, of course! Here<br />

are three best-in-class products<br />

you’ll find in our area and use<br />

almost, if not, every day!<br />

Philips 4300 Fully<br />

Automatic Espresso<br />

Machine<br />

I’m now a barista, and<br />

a pretty darn good one,<br />

according to my wife—all<br />

because I bought this<br />

machine. From coffee<br />

to cappuccinos to espresso and more, the Philips<br />

4300 Fully Automatic Espresso Machine delivers.<br />

It also stores your drinks in its memory, grinds<br />

beans, and creates coffee shop-quality drinks at<br />

the push of a button; it even foams milk! (Use 2%<br />

for the best foam, IMO). Best of all, it will pay for<br />

itself and keep you out of those long coffee shop<br />

lines. $899, available at Crate & Barrel<br />

Vertical Rabbit<br />

Corkscrew<br />

While I love a screw<br />

cap, most wines are<br />

still corked. Honestly,<br />

though, I just want<br />

my wine with as little<br />

work occurring as<br />

possible. The first time I used the Rabbit, I was<br />

astonished—and I created a bit of a problem. My<br />

wife came home to find me in the kitchen with 11<br />

bottles of wine open. When she asked me why, I<br />

just stood there, babbled “…so easy to open…” If<br />

you drink wine and don’t own one, the question<br />

is, “wine not?” $59.99, available at Total Wine<br />

& More<br />

Zyliss Easy Pull<br />

Chopper<br />

OK, I love to cook, but<br />

I don’t like to prepare<br />

everything. I’m always<br />

looking for shortcuts<br />

when it comes to<br />

chopping but cleaning a<br />

food processor takes longer than cooking a meal!<br />

A friend mentioned this little device, and now<br />

I give them out as gifts: It’s the BEST KITCHEN<br />

GADGET EVER! Pull the string and chop anything.<br />

Buy one—you’ll thank me! $39.95, available at<br />

Q: WHAT SHOULD I BE<br />

DOING IN THE FALL FOR<br />

A SUCCESSFUL SUMMER<br />

GARDEN?<br />

A: Simply put, anything and everything<br />

that will maximize the total energy<br />

stored in each plant and tree. A few<br />

focuses include:<br />

▼<br />

Supply nutrients that promote root,<br />

trunk, and branch development while<br />

minimizing new leaf growth.<br />

▼<br />

Prepare to provide protection for<br />

sensitive plants from cold weather<br />

damage.<br />

▼<br />

Adjust irrigation controls to account<br />

for weather changes.<br />

▼<br />

Leave perennial die back on most<br />

plants as winter insulation until mid-<br />

February.<br />

11 Years Won<br />

Since 2011


| home & garden |<br />

Cathy Tonks, founder<br />

and interior designer at<br />

Designs With You in Mind<br />

(designswithyouinmind.<br />

net), says many of us have<br />

spaces in our homes<br />

that we don’t use to<br />

their fullest potential.<br />

“The room pictured<br />

to the right—now a<br />

luxurious and inviting<br />

contemporary home<br />

office—was once a dining<br />

room that hadn't been<br />

used in 11 years!” she<br />

says. “Don’t let spaces go<br />

unused—it’s time to start<br />

getting the most out of<br />

them, and this might<br />

mean transforming<br />

an existing space into<br />

something else. Once<br />

you let go of how a room<br />

‘should be’ used, the<br />

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

Lauren Jacobsen, principal designer and owner of Lauren Jacobsen<br />

Interiors (laurenjacobseninteriors.com), says the past couple of years has<br />

given many of us a pause for thought about the importance of a home office<br />

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

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

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

showcasing your personality and interests.”<br />

TAKE IT OUTSIDE<br />

“One of the greatest things about working<br />

from home is being able to move your<br />

office outside when the weather is nice,”<br />

says Whitney Critchley, creative director<br />

at Terra Outdoor Living (terraoutdoor.<br />

com). Here, she shares everything needed<br />

for a functional alfresco office.<br />

1. Comfortable seating. “When you need to<br />

settle in and focus on work, it’s important<br />

to have the right chair—[one with a] strong,<br />

well-proportioned frame and supportive seat<br />

that [works] for office hours, and even outdoor<br />

dining,” says Critchley.<br />

2. Easy-to-clean surfaces. “If you’re anything<br />

like me, you need space to spread out and snacks<br />

to keep you going while you work. Ceramic-style<br />

glass tabletops are smooth, expansive, and<br />

remarkably easy to clean, so you always have a<br />

fresh surface. Infused with opaque color, they<br />

offer the attractive look of ceramic with the<br />

exceptional durability of tempered glass.”<br />

3. Zoom-friendly backdrop. “Background<br />

envy is for real. Make your setup the talk of<br />

the Slack channel by positioning yourself in<br />

front of bright blooms, a sparkling pool, or a<br />

lush wall of greenery. Natural light is the most<br />

flattering when you’re on camera. A movable<br />

umbrella will let you keep the sun in front of<br />

you, so the illumination is soft and even. If the<br />

weather is uncooperative or your kids have<br />

commandeered the pool, download a backdrop<br />

to set the perfect scene.<br />

HOME OFFICE DESIGN TIPS<br />

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

success.<br />

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

hybrid. Zuri has some fantastic contemporary options.<br />

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

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

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

thumb.<br />

• Incorporate any necessary power outlets into your design. Hint: Desks located<br />

in the center of the room will need outlets in the floor. We suggest purchasing a<br />

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

• Ensure each piece of furniture has a distinct purpose.<br />

• Consider storage solutions and stay organized with bookcases, file cabinets, and<br />

more.<br />

• Incorporate an interesting background for Zoom calls.<br />

• Customize your office and make it feel special with curated artwork. Bonus points<br />

if it’s local!<br />

“<br />

Even when space is<br />

limited, choosing a desk<br />

that’s a beautiful piece<br />

in its own right makes<br />

for an inspiring space to<br />

spend your days.<br />

”<br />

When designing a home office, Jacobsen<br />

always starts with the piece of furniture that<br />

will likely dominate the room: the desk. “Even<br />

when space is limited, choosing a desk that’s<br />

a beautiful piece in its own right makes for a<br />

[motivating place] to spend your days,” she says.<br />

“Positioning the desk to face a view or a piece<br />

of artwork is a simple way to incorporate visual<br />

texture and stimulation.”<br />

Jacobsen also suggests selecting a spot<br />

with natural light to improve focus and<br />

saving space for a comfortable accent chair<br />

or bench so others can visit throughout the<br />

workday. “If your work area is incorporated<br />

into part of another room, being able to<br />

clear everything away at the end of the<br />

day can be essential, which often calls for<br />

hidden desk ideas,” she says.<br />

And while an office may be a place for<br />

work, this doesn’t mean that it should lack<br />

personality. “Adding a point of interest that<br />

highlights a favorite hobby often gives the<br />

space a more personal touch and makes for a<br />

more enjoyable place to work,” she says.<br />

Kitchen<br />

“<br />

From this, a modest but diverse<br />

menu that pairs perfectly with<br />

a tavern-style ambience was<br />

born—think pub grub elevated<br />

to foodie standards.<br />

”<br />

64 stylemg.com | OCTOBER <strong>2022</strong> | /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemediagroup /stylemags<br />

The expression of human creativity takes many forms.<br />

But food, by any standard, is arguably one of the best.<br />

Although the cuisine at Trax in Roseville isn’t trying to<br />

be the culinary centerpiece of artistic expression, the<br />

space itself is clearly a local artist hub.<br />

As my wife and I walked up Vernon Street, live<br />

music bellowed from outside the historic Tower Theatre. A crowd<br />

ebbed and flowed as people stopped to listen to the talented young<br />

musicians before entering their chosen establishment—and Trax was<br />

clearly the spot.<br />

We walked into the former diner, wandered through the crowd opposite<br />

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


Ahi Poke Nachos<br />

last two remaining seats at the bar.<br />

A local winery was doing a tasting,<br />

much to the excitement of my wife<br />

who quickly found one she liked. For<br />

me, however, a difficult choice ensued.<br />

With an impressive list of 30 (mostly<br />

local) craft brews, Trax is a beer-lover’s<br />

paradise. After a great recommendation<br />

from our friendly beertender, Cas, we<br />

were set for appetizers.<br />

The menu has a surprisingly large<br />

variety for being so small. When we spoke<br />

to head chef, Julia, about the offerings,<br />

she accredited the large diversity to her<br />

years in Australia where cultural fusion<br />

is at its core. From this, a modest but<br />

diverse menu that pairs perfectly with a<br />

tavern-style ambience was born—think<br />

pub grub elevated to foodie standards.<br />

We started with the ahi poke nachos.<br />

The crispy wonton chips and spicy mayo,<br />

Asian Chicken Salad<br />

cilantro, green onions, and fresh tuna<br />

were everything we hoped for. While we<br />

wanted far more tuna, it was a beautiful<br />

start that paired nicely with our white<br />

wine and IPA.<br />

For a bigger bite, we chose the sliders<br />

and Asian chicken salad. The former<br />

came as a pair, perfect for one person,<br />

post-appetizer, or to share with another<br />

entrée. The salad was a nice addition<br />

to the sliders—refreshing, sweet, and<br />

surprisingly filling.<br />

As we enjoyed our meal, we started<br />

chatting to two visiting artists showing<br />

their work at Blue Line Arts. Like us,<br />

they chose Trax for the wide beer<br />

selection and the simple menu, which<br />

we discussed at length together and all<br />

came to the same conclusion.<br />

While it’s great to have a huge menu,<br />

Michelin-level cuisine, and complicated<br />

recipes, at the end of the day, sometimes<br />

the best thing is a simple, well-made<br />

meal, a good brew, and a wonderful chat<br />

about the great things our region has<br />

to offer. By that standard, Trax is a true<br />

work of art.<br />

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

husband-and-wife owners, Ken and Rebecca, have accomplished something<br />

not every smokehouse has: the perfect combination of superb Southern<br />

BBQ with a side of incredible customer service. Start with their Queso<br />

& Chips—fresh, crispy, white corn tortilla chips served with house-made<br />

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

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

perfect plate. Crispy tater tots smothered in that same amazing queso with a<br />

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

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

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

I recommend the Southern <strong>Style</strong> Potato Salad and Kicked Up Coleslaw.<br />

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

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

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

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

reckon you’ll need ’em. — by JULIE RYAN<br />

Season<br />

4 Autumn-Inspired Recipes<br />

Summer has come and gone, so<br />

now’s the time to fill your belly<br />

and pantry with comforting<br />

autumnal eats. Read on for<br />

some seasonal recipes you can<br />

recreate at home.<br />

1 egg<br />

2 tbsp. heavy cream<br />

8 oz. wheel of brie<br />

*3 tbsp. apple pumpkin butter, divided<br />

2 tbsp. candied pecans, chopped<br />

1 sheet puffed pastry, defrosted according<br />

to package instructions<br />

Apple Pumpkin Butter Baked Brie<br />

Recipe submitted by Myka Estates, 3405 Carson Court,<br />

Placerville, 530-644-3474, mykaestates.com<br />

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking<br />

sheet with parchment paper. Mix the egg<br />

and cream together to make an egg wash;<br />

set aside. With a sharp pointed paring knife,<br />

cut a circle around the edge of the top of<br />

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

around, about halfway down into the middle<br />

of the wheel. Slide the knife under the circle<br />

you’ve cut and cut across the center to<br />

scoop out the cheese, removing it like the<br />

top of a carved pumpkin. Fill the cavity with<br />

two tablespoons of apple pumpkin butter<br />

and chopped candied pecans. Place the<br />

brie that you scooped out back on top.<br />

Fall Gnocchi<br />

Recipe submitted by Reds’ Bistro, 3645 Taylor Road, Loomis,<br />

916-259-4362, redsinloomis.com<br />

1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled<br />

and diced<br />

4 egg yolks<br />

2 tbsp. tarragon, finely chopped<br />

Salt & pepper, to taste<br />

2/3 cup flour<br />

Boil and simmer potatoes until<br />

tender. Strain and let drain for a few<br />

minutes. Mill potatoes. Mix in egg<br />

yolks, tarragon, and salt and pepper<br />

to taste. The mixture should be wet.<br />

Gently knead in the flour in small<br />

increments. Pour flour into potato<br />

Place the brie, cut side down, on the thawed pastry<br />

sheet; the pastry should be a square large enough<br />

to wrap the brie tight, without too much excess<br />

dough or not enough to seal tight. Make four<br />

cuts in the pastry starting from the brie to<br />

the edge of the corner. Fold each side<br />

of the cut pastry over the top of<br />

the brie, arrange nicely, and wrap<br />

rather tightly. Pinch the edges to<br />

seal the pastry around the brie.<br />

Brush generously with the<br />

egg wash. Cook for about<br />

15-20 minutes until pastry<br />

is golden in color. Remove<br />

from oven and let sit for<br />

20 minutes before serving.<br />

Top with a dollop of apple<br />

pumpkin butter and a<br />

candied pecan.<br />

*Available at Boa Vista Orchards,<br />

mixture with fingertips and then<br />

fold dough into itself. Final dough<br />

should be tacky, not sticky.<br />

Roll dough out as thick as your<br />

middle finger on a floured surface.<br />

Cut gnocchi as wide as your<br />

smallest finger. Generously flour to<br />

avoid sticking.<br />

Cook gnocchi in salted boiling<br />

water, until al dente. When done,<br />

shock in ice water. Drain and toss<br />

in olive oil with seasonal veggies<br />

(kale, squash, pumpkin, etc.) and<br />

any sauce of your choosing.<br />

Goddess Roasted Chicken<br />

Recipe submitted by Almighty Food Co., 4355 Town<br />

Center Boulevard, Suite 114, <strong>El</strong> <strong>Dorado</strong> Hills, 916-510-1204,<br />

almightyeats.com<br />

4 chicken leg quarters<br />

1 1/2 cups cup Green Goddess<br />

Dressing<br />

1 head garlic<br />

Sweet potato, largely diced<br />

2 yellow onions, largely diced<br />

3 large carrots, largely diced<br />

Fresh herbs, chopped, to<br />

garnish<br />

Lemon, to garnish<br />

*Green Goddess Dressing<br />

4 garlic cloves<br />

10 sprigs parsley (just the leaves)<br />

3 green onions (whole)<br />

1/4 cup lemon juice<br />

1/4 cup lime juice<br />

1 tbsp. Dijon mustard<br />

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar<br />

2 tbsp. local honey<br />

2 cups avocado oil<br />

1 cup olive oil<br />

Salt & pepper, to taste<br />

Make dressing. Combine all<br />

ingredients through honey and<br />

blend on medium speed into a<br />

smooth paste; slowly add oils until<br />

incorporated. Season to taste with<br />

salt and pepper.<br />

Marinate leg quarters in 1 cup<br />

of green goddess dressing in<br />

a Ziploc bag; remove air and<br />

refrigerate overnight.<br />

The following day, preheat the<br />

oven to 350 degrees. Toss whole<br />

garlic cloves, sweet potatos,<br />

onions, and carrots with 1/2 cup<br />

of the green goddess dressing.<br />

Place the vegetable mixture on<br />

a baking sheet and cover with<br />

chicken, skin side up. Roast for<br />

about 25 minutes, until the skins<br />

of the leg bones just begin to<br />

contract and pull away from the<br />

joint. The temperature of the<br />

chicken should be 160 when<br />

inserting a meat thermometer.<br />

Garnish with fresh herbs, such as<br />

rosemary, chives, and flat-leaf<br />

parsley, and a squeeze of lemon.<br />

Serve family-style.<br />

*The vinaigrette may separate<br />

due to the lack of egg yolk or<br />

mayonnaise. To make it creamy;<br />

simply shake before use to reemulsify.<br />

Use as a poultry or fish<br />

marinade, or as a salad dressing.<br />

Risotto Alla Zucca<br />

(Butternut Squash Risotto)<br />

Recipe submitted by Wise Villa Winery, 4200 Wise<br />

Road, Lincoln, 916-543-0323, wisevillawinery.com<br />

2 tbsp. butter<br />

1 medium onion, finely diced<br />

3 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed<br />

1 tsp. fresh sage, chopped (dried sage also works)<br />

Salt & pepper, to taste<br />

2 1/2 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed into 1/2-inch<br />

pieces<br />

1/4 cup white wine<br />

1 cup Arborio rice (also called risotto rice)<br />

5 cups hot chicken or vegetable stock<br />

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese<br />

Fresh sage or parsley, chopped, to garnish<br />

Parmesan cheese, grated, to garnish<br />

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter. Once<br />

melted, add onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is soft<br />

and translucent. Add the sage, salt, and pepper and stir to<br />

combine. Add cubed squash. Stir everything together well and<br />

let the squash cook a little bit in the pan, softening slightly and<br />

just barely caramelizing. Add the wine and stir as wine reduces<br />

(about 5 minutes).<br />

Turn the heat to medium-low and add rice. Toss rice into the<br />

squash mixture until it's coated and move it around the pan for<br />

about 1 minute.<br />

Add hot chicken stock (or vegetable stock) about 1/2 cup at<br />

a time, stirring constantly and waiting until stock is absorbed<br />

by the rice until you add another 1/2 cup. Repeat the process<br />

above until all the stock has been added and absorbed by<br />

the rice and a creamy sauce has formed, stirring constantly<br />

throughout. The squash will also soften considerably as you<br />

add stock and stir, and will begin to fall apart and create an<br />

orange-colored creamy sauce.<br />

Mix in grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately and<br />

garnish with herbs and more grated cheese.<br />
