Style Magazine - December 2022

What’s your favorite holiday tradition? Growing up, I had a lot of them. My parents’ annual gingerbread house party where friends, family, and neighbors would fill our house with cheer as we decorated the edible abodes with brightly colored candy; hiking through Snowy Peaks to hunt down the perfect pine tree, followed by a fireside cup of the farm’s complimentary cocoa; and waking up Christmas morning to a half-eaten plate of cookies and carrots, seeing my stocking stuffed to the brim (with practical things like socks and scrunchies!), and unwrapping presents in PJs before devouring a big brunch. Yep, Christmas as a kid was pretty magical. As an adult, some of the magic has certainly slipped away. But now, with offspring of my own, my family's forming new traditions and recreating the ones above in hopes that my kiddos' Christmas memories are just as merry and bright. Whatever season of life you’re in—empty nester, new parent, pet parent, etc.—I can assure you that this issue is full of festive ways to celebrate the actual season. If you’re like me and don’t start Christmas shopping till it’s almost too late, fret not. Our “Holiday Gift Guide” (page 68) has ideas for everyone on your list—cool kids, furry friends, fashionistas, foodies, homebodies, and self-care seekers. The best part? All 50+ finds are sold at mom-and-pop places or made by area artisans. Empty your Amazon cart and #ShopLocal this year. Side note: Most of the featured businesses offer online shopping and free delivery, too. Considering sugar and spice is a big part of what makes Christmas nice, I encourage you to check out “Make it Merry” (page 94), featuring home-based bakers’ most-requested recipes to sweeten the season. Bring out the butter, pull out the parchment paper, and dedicate one full (preferably rainy) day to baking things like coffee-glazed molasses cookies and pecan-topped toffee. The finished products make for a perfect present, too! Finally, in “Making Spirits Bright” (page 90), local mixologists share their top winter warmers, including our cover cocktail, “Bad Santa,” whose ingredients include some of my favorite things (coffee, candy canes, and Irish cream). Gather with your booze-loving buddies, turn up the Christmas tunes, and toast to the most wonderful time of the year. Cheers!

What’s your favorite holiday<br />

tradition? Growing up, I<br />

had a lot of them. My parents’<br />

annual gingerbread house<br />

party where friends, family,<br />

and neighbors would fill our<br />

house with cheer as we decorated the edible<br />

abodes with brightly colored candy; hiking<br />

through Snowy Peaks to hunt down the perfect<br />

pine tree, followed by a fireside cup of the<br />

farm’s complimentary cocoa; and waking up<br />

Christmas morning to a half-eaten plate of<br />

cookies and carrots, seeing my stocking stuffed<br />

to the brim (with practical things like socks and<br />

scrunchies!), and unwrapping presents in PJs<br />

before devouring a big brunch. Yep, Christmas<br />

as a kid was pretty magical.<br />

As an adult, some of the magic has certainly<br />

slipped away. But now, with offspring of my<br />

own, my family's forming new traditions and<br />

recreating the ones above in hopes that my kiddos' Christmas memories are just as<br />

merry and bright.<br />

Whatever season of life you’re in—empty nester, new parent, pet parent, etc.—I can<br />

assure you that this issue is full of festive ways to celebrate the actual season.<br />

For people whose month isn’t completely packed with parties and other<br />

Christmassy commitments already, turn to our community calendar (page 30) for<br />

holiday performances and parades aplenty, plus tree lightings, visits with Santa, toy<br />

drives, and more. After pressing pause on in-person events the past few years, the<br />

holiday hoopla is back and better than ever.<br />

If you’re like me and don’t start Christmas shopping till it’s almost too late, fret not.<br />

Our “Holiday Gift Guide” (page 68) has ideas for everyone on your list—cool kids, furry<br />

Women<br />

Winemakers<br />

by NELLY KISLYANKA<br />

Did you know only 17.8% of winemakers in the U.S. are<br />

women? Luckily, three local ladies aren’t letting those<br />

odds stop them from pursuing their passion. As<br />

winemakers, they’re involved in every step: fruit<br />

selection, deciding which wines to produce, and<br />

giving the go-ahead to begin harvesting grapes. Let’s<br />

raise a glass to these women working hard to produce<br />

the perfect glass of wine.<br />

Kari Hazen<br />

Rancho Roble Vineyards,<br />

340 Fleming Road, Lincoln,<br />

916-645-2075, ranchoroble.com<br />

Since acquiring Rancho Roble Vineyards<br />

with her husband in 2017, Kari Hazen has<br />

worked tirelessly to grow the vineyard into<br />

the thriving business many enjoy today.<br />

First and foremost, she considers herself<br />

a student of winemaking, investing time<br />

into learning from her peers in Napa. For<br />

Hazen, making good wine is more than<br />

hard work; it’s about having fun.<br />

How did you get into winemaking?<br />

I bought a winery and literally got my<br />

hands dirty in the vineyard. Now, my hands<br />

are stained from winemaking!<br />

What are the three most critical things<br />

you’ve learned in making quality wine?<br />

You must have excellent fruit that meets<br />

your criteria; cleanliness is next to holiness;<br />

and, finally, plan ahead and think about<br />

each step to ensure you produce wine<br />

your customers will love.<br />

Favorite surprising or unexpected food<br />

and wine pairing? Pumpkin pie and<br />

chardonnay—so amazing!<br />

What, for you, makes a good wine? One<br />

that is well-balanced, fruit-forward, and<br />

finishes smoothly.<br />

What makes your wines unique? They<br />

highlight the quality of the fruit and aren't<br />

overly complex—just fruit-forward and<br />

crisp with a smooth finish.<br />

Emily Haines<br />

Terra d’Oro, 20680 Shenandoah<br />

School Road, Plymouth, 209-245-6942,<br />

terradorowinery.com<br />

Emily Haines brought her skills and<br />

knowledge of winemaking to Terra<br />

d’Oro in 2017. Before then, she was with<br />

Wahluke Wine Company in Washington,<br />

serving as director of winemaking for the<br />

company’s Milbrandt Vineyards. Today,<br />

her experience, passion, and degrees<br />

in biotechnology and biochemistry are<br />

helping to refine the next generation of<br />

Terra d’Oro’s terroir-driven vino.<br />

How did you get into winemaking?<br />

I grew up thinking I would become a<br />

scientist or a doctor, but after pursuing<br />

a science degree and working in the<br />

biomedical field for a few years, my path<br />

steered me into wine. What began as<br />

an interest in tasting and the process,<br />

turned into me becoming a lab tech<br />

and working my way up. I came to Terra<br />

d’Oro in 2017 at the prospect of working<br />

with new varieties in a new-to-me<br />

region. It has been an honor to put my<br />

winemaking stamp on the wines here.<br />

What are the three most critical things<br />

you’ve learned in making quality wine?<br />

Patience—waiting for the grapes to ripen,<br />

waiting for the juice to spend the right<br />

amount of time on the skins, blending<br />

until it's just right, and releasing the wine<br />

only when it’s ready; balance—of flavors<br />

in the wine, tannin perception, and oak<br />

impression; and [intuition]—trusting<br />

yourself and your gut to make the right<br />

decisions.<br />

Favorite surprising or unexpected<br />

food and wine pairing? Unagi (eel) with<br />

barbera, but my favorite everyday pairing<br />

is anything barbecued with zinfandel.<br />

What, for you, makes a good wine?<br />

I feel that a great wine contains four<br />

qualities that can be perceived in the<br />

glass: fresh fruit, minerality, spice/herbs,<br />

and structure.<br />

What makes your wines unique? All in<br />

all, our wines at Terra d’Oro come down<br />

to balance. I try to create wines that will<br />

please the newest of wine consumers<br />

and the restaurant sommeliers—always<br />

aiming for approachability and ease of<br />

enjoyment.<br />

Tatiana Vander Velde<br />

Polynesian Girl Wine, 6020 Grizzly<br />

Flat Road, Somerset, 530-344-4788,<br />

polynesiangirlwine.com<br />

Tatiana Vander Velde co-owns<br />

Polynesian Girl Wine and oversees<br />

the vineyard’s extensive operations.<br />

She can be found amongst her<br />

vines daily, talking to her plants<br />

and nurturing them with music.<br />

Her deep respect and connection<br />

to the land are the foundation of<br />

her vineyard management and<br />

winemaking philosophy.<br />

How did you get into winemaking?<br />

My father is a hobbyist wine<br />

and beer maker. After trying his<br />

blackberry wine (which our family<br />

still talks about!), I decided I wanted<br />

to make wine, too. He showed me<br />

that anyone can make great vino.<br />

What are the three most critical<br />

things you’ve learned in making<br />

quality wine? You need quality<br />

grapes; you need to enjoy doing<br />

it; and you should have a good<br />

supply of beer in your fridge while<br />

winemaking.<br />

Favorite surprising or unexpected<br />

food and wine pairing?<br />

Chardonnay and crunchy peanut<br />

butter!<br />

What, for you, makes a good<br />

wine? A good wine is when you can<br />

enjoy it with family and friends. I also<br />

prefer a wine that has a full body,<br />

structured mouthfeel, and a long,<br />

balanced finish. An "aha!" wine for<br />

me was a 2003 Mondavi Reserve<br />

Merlot. I was on a cruise with my<br />

family enjoying an amazing dinner<br />

and when I took a sip of it, I truly fell<br />

in love.<br />

What makes your wines unique?<br />

I make them from bud to bottle and<br />

don’t use any pesticides or herbicide<br />

in the vineyard. I also don’t hire<br />

anyone; I just have my awesome<br />

family and friends who come every<br />

year to help me harvest. We pick<br />

the grapes at 3 a.m., have a coffee<br />

break by 8 a.m., and then process<br />

the grapes before the sun is high up.<br />

Our wines are an expression of labor,<br />

love, family, and friends.<br />

Know Your Trees<br />

Stuck on which tree you want to bring<br />

into your home for the holidays? Read<br />

the brief below for a description of<br />

trees commonly offered. Who knows…<br />

maybe you’ll even branch out this year<br />

into something new.<br />

Douglas Fir<br />

Possibly the most<br />

recognizable Christmas<br />

tree, the Douglas Fir<br />

has been the most<br />

popular species since<br />

the ’20s. They’re typically very full and<br />

have excellent symmetry.<br />

Noble Fir<br />

Another popular<br />

option is the Noble<br />

Fir, which has long,<br />

deep bluish-green<br />

needles and is dense<br />

and very symmetrical.<br />

Nordmann Fir<br />

With its soft needles<br />

and resistance to shed,<br />

the Nordmann Fir is<br />

perfect for hanging<br />

ornaments. This is also<br />

a great option for those sensitive to<br />

smell as this tree lacks fragrance.<br />

Silvertip<br />

The Silvertip is a unique<br />

tree, as the branches<br />

are spread out, offering<br />

the perfect space to<br />

display ornaments.<br />

They are bluish green in color; the silver<br />

refers to its silvery new growth.<br />

White Fir<br />

Also known as<br />

Concolor Fir, the White<br />

Fir makes an attractive<br />

Christmas tree for<br />

its pyramid shape<br />

and needle retention. Plus, when the<br />

needles are crushed, they release a<br />

delicious citrus scent.<br />

Reinventing the Wheel<br />

SPOTLIGHT ON<br />

CERAMICISTS<br />

by NELLY KISLYANKA<br />

A craft that’s more than 20,000 years old, ceramics<br />

is a versatile medium whose form, function, and<br />

purpose vary vastly. A handful of local artists are<br />

pushing boundaries and breathing new life into<br />

the age-old art. Here are four ceramicists whose<br />

handmade wares you’re sure to get fired up about.<br />

Sandy Hilton<br />

sandyhiltonpottery.com<br />

Sandy Hilton is primarily a<br />

functional potter, creating<br />

pots, bowls, and other<br />

useful goods that are<br />

equally beautiful as they<br />

are bright. Now retired,<br />

the former community<br />

and cultural services<br />

manager for the City of<br />

Folsom teaches at the Folsom<br />

Art Center, where she shares<br />

her passion for pottery with a<br />

myriad of students.<br />

Why do you love ceramics?<br />

I’ve always been intrigued with<br />

the feel of the earth between my<br />

fingers. There are so many parts<br />

to creating a ceramic artwork,<br />

from forming the shape to<br />

firing the clay and finally<br />

glazing the work and firing it<br />

again. Opening a freshly fired<br />

glaze load is always exciting;<br />

[you never know] if the kiln gods<br />

[will be] good to [you]!<br />

How do you avoid artists’<br />

block?<br />

I think all artists get a<br />

degree of block from time<br />

to time, but I always seem<br />

to bounce out of it when I<br />

see the work of other artists<br />

or the enthusiasm of new<br />

students.<br />

What inspires you?<br />

Much of my inspiration<br />

comes from the natural<br />

world—spending time<br />

traveling and seeing<br />

different cultures and<br />

landscapes.<br />

Marianne Waterstradt<br />

mendedbeauty.com<br />

Marianne Waterstradt<br />

specializes in kintsugi, the<br />

Japanese art of repairing<br />

broken pottery by mending<br />

the areas of breakage with<br />

lacquer that’s dusted or mixed<br />

with powdered gold, silver, or<br />

platinum. According to the<br />

artist, “Creating [these] pieces<br />

help remind us that while we<br />

experience events that make<br />

us feel broken; once mended,<br />

we’re more beautiful than we<br />

were before.”<br />

Why do you love ceramics?<br />

It’s not the ceramic itself that<br />

I love; rather, it’s the joy and<br />

healing that comes from<br />

transforming something that<br />

was once broken and useless<br />

into something more beautiful<br />

and stronger than it originally<br />

was.<br />

How do you avoid artists’<br />

block?<br />

When I find myself “stuck”<br />

on how to proceed with a<br />

piece, my first step is to lay<br />

down and begin meditating.<br />

While my mind is clear, I try<br />

to imagine the history of the<br />

piece. From this open space, I<br />

can usually envision ways in<br />

which to mend it so that each<br />

imperfection is highlighted<br />

and made beautiful.<br />

What inspires you?<br />

I’ve received broken pieces<br />

from around the world, and<br />

the stories that accompany<br />

them are always deeply<br />

intriguing. One piece came<br />

from a tribe deep in the<br />

jungles of New Zealand;<br />

another one from Paris; and<br />

another from Africa. Each<br />

piece I work on has a life that<br />

has been temporarily dimmed<br />

by its breaking. My inspiration<br />

comes in seeking to reignite<br />

the beauty of the original<br />

pieces so they continue to lend<br />

joy to future generations.<br />

Brian Hayes<br />

& Sarah Murray<br />

hmpottery.com<br />

Brian Hayes and<br />

Sarah Murray<br />

aren’t only a<br />

couple; they create<br />

functional pottery<br />

together, too. From<br />

vases, bowls, and<br />

teapots, to platters,<br />

mugs, and more<br />

(Sarah also makes<br />

handmade stoneware<br />

and raku buttons;<br />

available at the<br />

Placerville Art Gallery),<br />

their hand-glazed,<br />

wonderfully whimsical<br />

clay creations are both<br />

rustic and elegant.<br />

Why do you love<br />

ceramics?<br />

Sarah: For me, it really<br />

comes down to the medium’s<br />

natural substance and the<br />

endless possibilities you<br />

can create with it, the very<br />

natural ways it can be fired,<br />

and how it’s forever changed<br />

after doing so. I also love<br />

how it can become<br />

your favorite bowl or<br />

mug—a cherished,<br />

useful, tactile, and<br />

aesthetic part of one’s<br />

everyday life.<br />

Brian: You get to play<br />

in mud and get dirty,<br />

work with fire, and<br />

create things that are<br />

useful for people<br />

to enjoy.<br />

How do you avoid<br />

artists’ block?<br />

Sarah: I do<br />

something else—<br />

explore in nature<br />

or play with clay<br />

and see what<br />

happens.<br />

Brian: I go trout<br />

fishing or work in<br />

the garden.<br />

What inspires you?<br />

Sarah: The natural world;<br />

I find inspiration in the<br />

patterns, textures, and<br />

designs all around us.<br />

Brian: Time spent in the<br />

mountains.<br />

Dita Lewis-<br />

Panter<br />

cowgirlditapottery.com<br />

Full-time potter Dita<br />

Lewis-Panter creates<br />

“artistically functional”<br />

pieces, like chopstick<br />

bowls, bottles, and<br />

lidded jars. According<br />

to the artist—who was<br />

introduced to, and<br />

fell in love with, the<br />

medium back in high<br />

school—“The spiritual<br />

aspect of creating<br />

something from a lump<br />

of clay is profoundly<br />

calming.” Currently, her<br />

work can be found at the<br />

Sacramento Fine Arts<br />

Center and Art League of<br />

Lincoln.<br />

Why do you love<br />

ceramics?<br />

There’s just something<br />

about getting my hands<br />

in the clay. The feel of it<br />

spinning<br />

through my<br />

fingers can<br />

be quite<br />

meditative.<br />

It keeps me<br />

present and<br />

centered.<br />

How do<br />

you avoid<br />

artists’<br />

block?<br />

Watching<br />

artist demos on social<br />

media usually inspire<br />

me to get back at it. Also,<br />

seeing finished pieces at<br />

an art walk or in a gallery.<br />

Sometimes, just looking<br />

at nature and thinking<br />

about a texture that<br />

would look good on a pot.<br />

What inspires you?<br />

Being out in nature.<br />

Whether it’s textures on<br />

tree bark, grasses, or<br />

leaves, they all inspire<br />

designs. When it comes to<br />

glazing, the ocean, stormy<br />

skies, or rocky bluffs all<br />

influence my work. Lately,<br />

vibrant lights (like those<br />

seen at concerts) have<br />

caused me to experiment<br />

with achieving richer<br />

saturations.<br />

symphony musicians. Funds raised will<br />

ME, MYSELF, & I<br />

7 Challenges<br />

Simple Self-Care<br />

by CAITLIN MCCULLOCH<br />

Self-care has always been an important<br />

component to mental health, yet many of us<br />

take care of everyone but ourselves. We asked<br />

local experts how to implement “me time” into<br />

our modern day lives. Here are a few ideas<br />

to get inspired—challenge yourself to try<br />

one that feels right for you!<br />

1<br />

TAKE ACTION WITH AFFIRMATIONS<br />

“Write a positive statement for something you<br />

would like to change and say it 10-20 times a day for one<br />

week until it's memorized. The next week, write a new<br />

one and repeat the process. What you think is how you<br />

feel. Change your thoughts, and you will change [your<br />

life].” Therese Sorrentino, LMFT, theresesorrentinomft.<br />

com<br />

2<br />

LOVE YOURSELF<br />

“Accept the truth that you will never eliminate<br />

the sabotaging part of yourself (I’m too lazy; I don’t<br />

have time; I’m not good at this stuff; Other people are<br />

more important, etc.). Instead, say to yourself, “Even<br />

though I’m stressed and failing at self-care, I can totally<br />

love myself for where I am in this moment. I can fill my<br />

heart with love right now…presently.” Make more space<br />

in your heart by expanding your chest or imagining the<br />

feeling of opening. Actively being loving toward yourself<br />

automatically becomes easier and more available for you.<br />

Start slow, expect small results, and believe you’re building a<br />

steady core of self-care reliance you’ll benefit from.” Jenifer<br />

Novak Landers, Life Coach, fullyexpressedpotential.com<br />

3<br />

BE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT<br />

“Perfectionism is exhausting, not to mention<br />

impossible to obtain. When nothing less than perfect is<br />

the goal, we end up feeling like a failure every time. If<br />

you struggle with perfectionism, try exposing yourself<br />

to being perfectly imperfect. Challenge yourself to wear<br />

mismatched socks, pick your favorite nail polish color<br />

instead of what’s in fashion, or donate something from<br />

your closet that doesn’t reflect who you truly are.” Holly<br />

Spotts, PsyD, fullcupwellness.com<br />

4<br />

STAY GROUNDED<br />

“When implementing anything,<br />

it’s always best to start out small; we<br />

have the greatest success when it’s<br />

sustainable. What makes you feel like<br />

you? When do you feel recharged?<br />

Reflecting on what is already working<br />

or what might be draining your energy<br />

is a good place to start. Finding ways<br />

to feel grounded are some of the best<br />

ways to care for yourself. Ideas might<br />

include a slower morning by waking 30<br />

minutes earlier, sipping your favorite<br />

tea, journaling, yoga, stretching, or<br />

listening to your favorite playlist or<br />

podcast. Choose one and implement<br />

it each day.” Ashlee Janzen, LMFT,<br />

ashleejanzenlmft.com<br />

5<br />

JUST BREATHE<br />

“Even 5-10 minutes a day can<br />

make a big difference. There are many<br />

great meditation apps out there to help.<br />

I teach every patient I see to breathe,<br />

relax their body, and meditate. It will<br />

immediately calm down your nervous<br />

system.” Therese Sorrentino, LMFT,<br />

theresesorrentinomft.com<br />

6<br />

LIVE IN THE MOMENT<br />

“How many times do you check<br />

Instagram, email, or another app out<br />

of habit? You catch yourself scrolling<br />

and think, ‘Wait. I never consciously<br />

chose to do this, yet here I am.’ If we’re<br />

not careful, we can go through our<br />

lives on autopilot—our body doing<br />

one thing, and our mind somewhere<br />

else, unsupervised, running amok.<br />

Bring yourself back to the present<br />

by connecting with yourself as you<br />

move from one thing to another:<br />

take a moment to check in when<br />

you find yourself at the space in<br />

between. How do you feel? What do<br />

you want to do next? Where are your<br />

thoughts? Being present puts us back<br />

into the driver’s seat. We can move<br />

from one thing to the next because<br />

we choose to, not purely out of habit.<br />

The more we practice (and it is a<br />

practice!) being present and checking<br />

in, the more in touch with ourselves,<br />

others, and the world around us<br />

we become.” Nancy Ryan, LMFT,<br />

relationshiptherapycenter.com<br />

7<br />

USE YOUR HANDS<br />

“If you’re a person who<br />

constantly uses your brain, try giving it<br />

a break during your down time by using<br />

your hands instead. Working with your<br />

hands [texting and typing don’t count!]<br />

will give your mind a chance to relax and<br />

reset, leading to less stress and an overall<br />

better mood. You might try cooking<br />

a new recipe, cleaning out a closet or<br />

drawer, or tending a garden.” Holly Spotts,<br />

PsyD, fullcupwellness.com<br />

Take a Hike<br />

Bootjack Camp to Stinson Beach<br />

by RYAN MARTINEZ<br />

LOCATED IN:<br />

Mill Valley.<br />

DISTANCE:<br />

4.4 miles point to point; 8.8<br />

miles out and back.<br />

DIFFICULTY LEVEL:<br />

Moderate.<br />

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:<br />

The hike from Mill Valley<br />

to Stinson Beach isn’t<br />

terribly difficult, but the<br />

steep descent down to the<br />

coast will become more<br />

challenging and tiresome<br />

on the way back up, so<br />

make sure you have some<br />

gas in the tank. There are<br />

also shuttles that will bring<br />

you back if the trek seems<br />

like too much. Wear shoes<br />

with traction, dress in<br />

layers, bring plenty of water<br />

and snacks, and practice<br />

Leave No Trace ethics.<br />

WHY WE LOVE IT:<br />

When snow is piled high in<br />

the Sierra, great hiking is<br />

only a short drive away, and<br />

the Mill Valley/Muir Woods<br />

area has some of the best<br />

and most beautiful scenery.<br />

FUEL UP:<br />

When you walk 4.4<br />

miles out of the woods<br />

directly to Breakers Café<br />

(stinsonbeachbreakerscafe.<br />

com), a quaint beachside<br />

eatery with a spacious<br />

heated patio, do you have<br />

to think twice? Seafood,<br />

tacos, and American fare all<br />

await—with cocktails and<br />

draft beers to boot. Closed<br />

Tuesdays and Wednesdays.<br />

4 Pros of<br />

Trekking<br />

Poles<br />

I used to think trekking<br />

poles were trite, until<br />

I started guiding<br />

professionally in Torres<br />

del Paine National Park in<br />

Patagonia, Chile. Hiking<br />

the steep terrain daily for<br />

months taught me that<br />

the pros of poles outweigh<br />

the cons. Here are four<br />

reasons to consider using<br />

them.<br />

1<br />

Protect your knees on<br />

steep descents. Your<br />

knees will thank you for<br />

the added support.<br />

2<br />

Increase your speed<br />

and power. Having the<br />

extra push will make<br />

you stronger and<br />

faster, especially on<br />

uphill climbs.<br />

3<br />

Aid balance on uneven<br />

terrain. Having trekking<br />

poles is like an extra set<br />

of limbs; they especially<br />

come in handy crossing<br />

streams.<br />

4<br />

Improve your posture.<br />

Improving your posture<br />

will help your back, your<br />

endurance, and even<br />

assist in breathing,<br />

thus improving overall<br />

performance.<br />

Do<br />

you have a<br />

favorite trail in the<br />

region you’d like to see<br />

featured? Tell us all<br />

rolling foothills of Placer County, a 160-acre nature<br />

preserve is home to meandering trails and old oaks. This is<br />

Morgan Oaks Eternal Preserve, a serene area for green<br />

burials, complete with exquisite natural beauty to honor a<br />

loved one’s memory.<br />

Green burial has been a popular alternative to conventional<br />

burial that allows you or your loved one to return to<br />

the earth naturally after passing. “Although an age-old<br />

tradition, it has become better known for reducing the<br />

use of toxic materials and preservatives that may pollute<br />

the earth”, says Mark Heintz, co-founder of Morgan Oaks.<br />

“Our green burial services include full-body interment,<br />

cremation remains burial, remains scattering and memorial<br />

tress so we can meet the needs of all those that are<br />

environmentally conscious.”<br />

Morgan Oaks doesn’t look like a traditional cemetery.<br />

Visitors won’t see rows of tombstones but rather Interment<br />

Gardens surrounded by walking trails, oak trees and riparian<br />

areas throughout the preserve. As you move along through<br />

this deeply personal journey, we at Morgan Oaks want you<br />

COOL STUFF<br />

Take a Spİn<br />

To all the bicyclists reading—sorry!—this isn’t a story<br />

about cycling. It’s about one of life’s greatest pleasures:<br />

listening to vinyl.<br />

by TERRY CARROLL<br />

I recently wrote about<br />

putting a good basic<br />

audio system together,<br />

but what comes after you<br />

have the amplification and<br />

speakers covered? If you<br />

want to start listening<br />

more critically and like<br />

the idea of spinning<br />

records, then it’s time<br />

to talk turntables.<br />

Vinyl is back in a big<br />

way, and for good<br />

reason: It’s one of<br />

the most enjoyable<br />

hobbies. Opening<br />

the album, reading<br />

the liner notes, laying it down on<br />

the turntable, and dropping the<br />

tonearm—BOOM! It’s real, it’s alive,<br />

and it sounds spectacular.<br />

I have several turntables—both<br />

in my home and workplace—all of<br />

which work well and sound great<br />

(albeit different) and come at<br />

different price points. I often hear<br />

the comment: “Don’t they all sound<br />

the same?” No, they don’t. Firstly,<br />

we all hear differently, and secondly,<br />

all audio gear has different sonic<br />

signatures based on their parts and<br />

engineering. It’s like saying all cars<br />

are the same. Yes, they all get you<br />

from point A to point B, but how they<br />

do it is why we buy it. Does anyone<br />

think a Honda Civic can be compared<br />

to a Porsche 911? Some might, but<br />

they clearly see cars as tools, not<br />

engineering marvels.<br />

Speaking of Porsche, the turntable<br />

pictured here, the EAT-C Sharp,<br />

is one I’ve had<br />

the pleasure<br />

of using for the past few weeks. I<br />

refer to Porsche, because of the<br />

product’s engineering and overall<br />

design. From the moment I opened<br />

it, it felt luxurious; every aspect just<br />

felt right, including the speed control<br />

module and connectors. Mounted on<br />

the exceptional tonearm was the EAT<br />

Jo No5 Cartridge, another item I’d<br />

been wanting to demo. The combo<br />

didn’t disappoint! I sat listening to Lyle<br />

Lovett’s 12th of June and<br />

Lyle was in the room—just<br />

voice and music—superb.<br />

Not only did the turntable<br />

perform at a level higher<br />

than expected, but it now<br />

ranks in my top three<br />

and costs far less than<br />

the other two. At $7,200<br />

with the cartridge, it’s not<br />

an entry-level piece of<br />

gear, but then neither is a<br />

Porsche 911.<br />

As for speakers, I recently test<br />

drove a pair of Wharfedale<br />

Lintons. In a word? Sublime.<br />

They disappear, which (in my<br />

opinion) is the goal. I’ve been<br />

listening to a lot of Tom Petty<br />

lately and recently purchased<br />

the remastered Wildflowers. It’s<br />

a recording I know well; however,<br />

in this system, with the EAT-C<br />

Sharp and the Wharfedale<br />

Lintons, I felt like I was hearing<br />

it for the first time. Whether<br />

you’re listening to rock, jazz, or<br />

classical, the Lintons can do it all,<br />

but what stood out for me were<br />

the voices. I played a favorite<br />

album next, Sinatra-Basie, and<br />

that’s when I knew these speakers<br />

were something special. What’s more,<br />

their exquisite look and matching<br />

stands are perfection—akin to the<br />

interior of a custom Jaguar. BTW—I<br />

bought them—I couldn’t let them go!<br />

These products found a forever<br />

place in my home. It’s one of the<br />

perils of writing about gear this<br />

good, but darn it, somebody has to<br />

do it!<br />

ASK THE<br />

EXPERT<br />

by BELLA NOLEN<br />

WHAT MAKES<br />

A GREAT<br />

MATTRESS?<br />

European certified natural<br />

and organic components<br />

Ergonomic German<br />

engineering<br />

Handcrafted in California<br />

Q: WHAT SHOULD<br />

I LOOK FOR WHEN<br />

CHOOSING A<br />

THERAPIST?<br />

A: It depends on the person<br />

seeking treatment and their<br />

concern(s). The most important<br />

thing is to find someone who<br />

has experience dealing with<br />

the specific issue(s) you, or<br />

your family member, may be<br />

experiencing. If it's for kids,<br />

then look for someone who<br />

sees children and adolescents.<br />

If it's an addiction issue, then<br />

find a therapist who specializes<br />

in chemical dependency. It’s<br />

especially important when<br />

seeking marriage counseling<br />

to find a therapist who has a lot<br />

of experience and training in<br />

dealing with couples, as not all<br />

licensed therapists do. Don't<br />

be afraid to ask questions to<br />

help you decide. And once you<br />

find someone, the benefits are<br />

endless. You’ll gain new insights<br />

and perspectives into your<br />

problems while learning some<br />

new tools and coping skills, too.<br />

Deck the Halls<br />

by EMILY PETER-COREY<br />

DIY<br />

Holiday<br />

Décor<br />

When it comes to holiday décor there’s nothing better<br />

than putting your own spin on it. We spoke to several<br />

design (and DIY) experts who suggested easy ways to<br />

celebrate the season in style.<br />

Select your ring of choice (grapevine,<br />

wire, etc.).<br />

Attach your bundles all the way to the<br />

desired ending spot.<br />

Create small bundles of your chosen<br />

ingredients and attach them to your<br />

ring with floral wire. Secure them tightly<br />

because they like to slide.<br />

Strategically place a loose, romantic<br />

silk ribbon bow, so it will hide your<br />

jointing spot and add visual interest.<br />

Cindy Magan, owner and lead<br />

designer at Hillside Blooms Floristry<br />

(hillsidebloomsfloristry.com), shares her<br />

steps for creating a custom wreath that is sure<br />

to have guests asking where you purchased it.<br />

"Wreath making is not as hard as you would<br />

think. With a few easy tools and a bit of elbow<br />

grease, anyone can make their very own<br />

custom wreath,” explains Magan.<br />

The More the Merrier<br />

When it comes to decorating your home<br />

for the holidays, Cathy Tonks, founder and<br />

interior designer at Designs With You In Mind<br />

(designswithyouinmind.net) suggests bringing<br />

outdoor elements inside. Below are some tips for<br />

incorporating natural elements into your home.<br />

• Dress up doorways, tablescapes, and fireplaces<br />

with full, lush garlands—real or fake.<br />

• Decorate with small potted pine tree plants<br />

or pine sprigs to add a natural, organic feel to<br />

your home.<br />

• Add a festive pop of Christmas color to any<br />

wreath, fireplace, or staircase by adding bright<br />

red holly berries.<br />

• Embrace texture and think outside the box by<br />

using succulents. Their clean lines work well<br />

during the holidays, and each variety offers a<br />

unique, fun texture. You can even spray them<br />

with glitter or add gold foil!<br />

• Transform unconventional items, such as<br />

globe vases, by adding a cheerful Christmas<br />

scene or snowman inside. Amp up the<br />

holiday flavor by placing the vase on top of a<br />

round wreath base.<br />

For a traditional style wreath, Chelsea<br />

Edman, owner and designer at The<br />

Wild Olive (thewildoliveflorist.com),<br />

takes us through creating a full<br />

wreath perfect for winter. “I prefer<br />

using an assortment of greenery<br />

for a beautiful combination of<br />

textures while greeting your guests<br />

with lovely scents like pine, cedar,<br />

juniper, fir, redwood, rosemary,<br />

and eucalyptus. All of these winter<br />

greeneries are long-lasting and will<br />

hold up well through the holiday<br />

season.”<br />

Step 1: Start with a wreath form,<br />

greenery, floral wire, and wire<br />

cutters. (The easiest wire to work<br />

with is floral wire on a spool so that<br />

you can use the same continuous<br />

wire.)<br />

Step 2: Start pulling your<br />

greenery and see what<br />

combinations you like together and<br />

start making small bundles. Cut the<br />

stems to the same length.<br />

Step 3: On your first bundle, hold<br />

the base and wrap the floral wire<br />

around the bottom of the bundle<br />

tightly twice, so it's nice and secure.<br />

Then, lay the bundle on the wreath<br />

form and tightly wrap the wire<br />

around the form.<br />

Step 4: Make another bundle,<br />

trim the stems to the same length,<br />

lay it directly on the wreath form,<br />

and wrap the wire around the base<br />

of the bundle and the wreath form<br />

to make a strong bond between<br />

the two. The closer the bundles, the<br />

fuller and more uniform the wreath<br />

will look. Make sure that the wire is<br />

fully covered so that it doesn’t show.<br />

Step 5: Continue to make bundles<br />

and add them to the wreath form<br />

one at a time until the wreath is<br />

filled with greenery. When you get<br />

to your last bundle, cut the wire<br />

so you have several inches to work<br />

with. Then, wrap the wire around<br />

itself several times and tighten so<br />

your greenery stays secure.<br />

Step 6: Add pinecones, ribbon,<br />

dried elements, or anything that gives<br />

it the aesthetic you’re looking for and<br />

attach with hot glue or wire.<br />

BETTER CARE FOR YOU<br />

The Best Exercises<br />

for Your Joints<br />

Keep your joints healthier by incorporating these<br />

activities into your workout routine.<br />

Your joints allow you to run, jump,<br />

twist and turn. In fact, nearly every<br />

movement you make is made possible<br />

by the functioning of one or more joints<br />

in your body. From your knees and hips<br />

to your shoulders and wrists, joints play<br />

a vital role in your life. That’s why it’s<br />

important to take care of them as much<br />

as possible.<br />

As you age, your joints are subjected to<br />

wear and tear. Joints can also be affected<br />

by injury, overuse or conditions such<br />

as arthritis. While you can’t control all<br />

factors that influence how well your<br />

joints work, there are steps you can take<br />

to keep your joints as healthy as possible.<br />

SPECIAL AD SECTION<br />

One of the best ways to keep joints<br />

healthier is to exercise regularly and<br />

engage in daily activities like walking<br />

and stretching. Exercise increases the<br />

flexibility of joints and keeps muscles<br />

that support joints stronger.<br />

Here are the best exercises to do to keep<br />

your joints in tip-top shape:<br />

• Aerobic exercises — To ease strain<br />

on your joints, stick to lower-intensity<br />

activities like walking, biking, using<br />

an elliptical trainer or swimming.<br />

Avoid high impact exercise such<br />

as jumping or running, especially<br />

on hard surfaces like sidewalks or<br />

streets, if you have joint pain or have<br />

experienced any deterioration in joint<br />

function.<br />

• Strength training exercises —<br />

Whether you use free weights, gym<br />

equipment, resistance bands or your<br />

own body weight, strength training<br />

helps keep your muscles strong so<br />

they can better support your joints.<br />

Just don’t overdo it or you risk<br />

injuring both muscles and joints.<br />

Proper form is important when doing<br />

any strength training exercise.<br />

• Flexibility exercises — Activities<br />

such as yoga, tai chi and pilates help<br />

joints maintain flexibility so they can<br />

go through their full range of motion<br />

without pain. These activities are<br />

low impact and can be performed<br />

by almost anyone, regardless of age<br />

or fitness level. Tai chi is especially<br />

helpful for older adults because<br />

it helps maintain better balance,<br />

reducing the risk of falls.<br />

• Stretching exercises — To loosen<br />

joints and muscles, stretch before<br />

and after aerobic and strength<br />

training activities. Stretching before<br />

activities helps get the blood flowing<br />

and loosens stiffness in muscles and<br />

joints. Stretching after activities is<br />

ideal because muscles and joints are<br />

more flexible, muscles are warm and<br />

circulation is increased.<br />

“Variety is key when your goal is to<br />

keep joints healthy. Include aerobic,<br />

muscle strengthening and flexibility<br />

exercises in your workout routine.<br />

Stretch multiple times a week.<br />

Don’t overstress joints by doing the<br />

same activities day after day—cross<br />

training adds variety and is good<br />

for your joints and muscles. Stick to<br />

lower-impact activities, especially<br />

if you have been experiencing any<br />

pain. Maintaining a healthy weight<br />

and avoiding injury as much as<br />

possible are other ways to support<br />

optimal joint health,” says Marshall<br />

Orthopedist Taylor Vance, MD.<br />

From Pandemic<br />

to Endemic<br />

Adapting to Life with COVID-19<br />

While the virus hasn’t gone away, here are tips<br />

to navigate our new normal.<br />

In early 2020, our worlds were turned upside<br />

down when the COVID-19 virus was labeled a<br />

pandemic, causing disruption and upheaval<br />

to life as we once knew it. Thankfully, life has<br />

returned to some sense of normalcy, even<br />

though the virus is far from being gone.<br />

The best way to describe the current state of the<br />

COVID-19 virus is that it’s on its way to reaching<br />

endemic status. This means the disease is still<br />

around (and is expected to remain indefinitely),<br />

but is not causing significant disruption to our<br />

daily lives. Hospitals are no longer reaching<br />

critical capacity. Schools and businesses are<br />

not closed. But there’s still the possibility of<br />

contracting the virus and getting sick.<br />

Endemics are nothing new. There are many<br />

viruses that are endemic in our community,<br />

including influenza (the flu), rhinovirus (the<br />

common cold) and respiratory syncytial virus<br />

(RSV). These viruses circulate and get people<br />

sick but they don’t stop us from living our lives.<br />

That’s what we’re facing with COVID-19, too.<br />

What do we do if COVID-19 is endemic?<br />

We live with endemics by protecting ourselves<br />

as much as possible. “In the case of COVID-19,<br />

that includes getting vaccinated and boosted<br />

as recommended. Immunity from vaccinations,<br />

as well as from natural infection, wanes over<br />

time and does not guarantee you won’t catch<br />

the virus. But data shows vaccines do a good<br />

job of protecting against serious illness,<br />

hospitalization and death so they’re still worth<br />

it,” says Brian Goldsmith, MD, Marshall’s Chief<br />

Medical Officer.<br />

Having treatment options available also helps<br />

us deal with endemics. People at high risk who<br />

contract COVID-19 may be advised to take a<br />

drug like Paxlovid to reduce symptoms and<br />

lower the chance of serious illness. As different<br />

variants of the virus emerge and our knowledge<br />

about the disease increases, other treatments<br />

options will likely be available in the future.<br />

While we would like to imagine a world where<br />

COVID-19 doesn’t exist anymore, that is not<br />

our reality. That means we have to find ways to<br />

go about our daily lives in as close to a normal<br />

fashion as possible while taking steps to avoid<br />

illness. These tips can help protect you from<br />

being severely impacted by COVID-19:<br />

• Continue to get boosted. Updated vaccine<br />

boosters will soon be available to better<br />

protect against newer omicron variants.<br />

Although it’s not known yet how often<br />

boosters will be recommended, it’s likely<br />

we’ll have to continue to get them regularly.<br />

This is something we already do with other<br />

viruses. For example, every year flu shots<br />

are recommended. Other vaccines require<br />

periodic boosters as well.<br />

• Take precautions in high risk situations.<br />

The same steps that protected you during<br />

the pandemic will help you now. Steer clear<br />

of anyone you know who has COVID-19<br />

or those who appear to have symptoms.<br />

Consider wearing masks when you are in<br />

large crowds, especially indoors. Wash your<br />

hands often.<br />

• Boost your immunity. Take steps to keep<br />

your immune system strong. Filling your<br />

plate with healthy foods, exercising regularly,<br />

getting enough sleep, not smoking and<br />

reducing stress are all ways to boost your<br />

immunity, so you can better fight COVID-19<br />

or any other illness you may get. As an added<br />

bonus, you’ll improve your overall health in<br />

the process.<br />

COVER STORY<br />

Live Healthily<br />

with Diabetes<br />

“If you can change<br />

your mindset and<br />

you have a good<br />

support system, you<br />

can also change<br />

your lifestyle.”<br />

Laura Morris didn’t know she had Type 2<br />

Diabetes when she lost consciousness at<br />

her home last <strong>December</strong>. Six days later<br />

on Christmas morning, she awoke at<br />

Marshall Medical Center and learned she<br />

was in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)—a<br />

serious complication of diabetes that<br />

develops when the body can’t produce<br />

enough insulin to process high levels of<br />

blood sugar.<br />

“I could have died,” says the 61-year-old<br />

Pollock Pines resident. “My husband<br />

said that having me wake up was the best<br />

Christmas present ever.”<br />

Laura hadn’t recognized the warning<br />

signs of Type 2 Diabetes, including a skin<br />

infection that wasn’t healing. Extreme<br />

thirst indicated that her blood glucose<br />

levels were dangerously high.<br />

She spent five weeks rehabilitating in<br />

a convalescent center, dependent on<br />

insulin to regulate her blood sugar.<br />

These days, Laura no longer requires<br />

insulin shots. She’s working with<br />

Marshall’s Diabetes and Nutrition<br />

Education team to manage her blood<br />

sugar through a healthy diet and<br />

frequent glucose monitoring. She’s<br />

successfully lost weight by tracking her<br />

food choices, controlling portions and<br />

reading food labels.<br />

“There’s no cure for diabetes—but I want<br />

to help myself get better,” Laura says. “I’m<br />

keeping a positive attitude. I believe if you<br />

can change your mindset and you have<br />

a good support system, you can also<br />

change your lifestyle.”<br />

Diabetes facts<br />

With diabetes, the body either doesn’t<br />

make enough insulin or can’t use it as well<br />

as it should to let blood sugar into your<br />

body’s cells for use as energy. Over time,<br />

too much sugar in your bloodstream can<br />

cause serious health problems, including<br />

heart and kidney disease, loss of vision<br />

and nerve damage in hands and feet.<br />

One way to consider how diabetes affects<br />

the body is by visualizing blood with high<br />

sugar levels as thick and syrupy, which<br />

makes it difficult for the blood to pass<br />

through the tiny veins and arteries in our<br />

eyes, kidneys and finger tips.<br />

Diabetes affects more than 1 in 10<br />

Americans, and 1.5 million people will<br />

be diagnosed with it this year, according<br />

to the American Diabetes Association.<br />

Yet, many people don’t even know they<br />

have this chronic disease. That’s why<br />

it’s important to recognize symptoms<br />

including changes in vision, tingling in<br />

hands and feet, and lingering fatigue.<br />

Get your A1C level tested regularly if<br />

you’re at risk.<br />

Type 1 diabetes comes on suddenly<br />

and usually affects younger people. It<br />

is not preventable and requires daily<br />

insulin shots. Type 2 diabetes—the most<br />

common type—develops over many<br />

years and can be prevented or delayed<br />

with healthy lifestyle changes.<br />

Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include<br />

being overweight, not being physically<br />

active, and being age 45 or older. Having<br />

gestational diabetes, prediabetes, a<br />

family history of the disease, or being<br />

African American, Hispanic, Latino,<br />

American Indian or Alaska Native also<br />

contribute to the risk.<br />

The good news: While there isn’t a cure<br />

for diabetes, healthy lifestyle habits can<br />

help manage blood sugar levels over the<br />

long term. Annual health screenings can<br />

catch diabetes early.<br />

“Weight loss, exercise and dietary<br />

changes are three ways to improve blood<br />

glucose levels,” says Lacey Neufeld,<br />

DNP, FNP-BC, a member of Laura’s<br />

4 | FOR YOUR HEALTH | www.marshallmedical.org


Blood Glucose Monitors<br />

Manage Highs and Lows<br />

For those with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, a home<br />

glucose monitor is a critical tool for tracking blood<br />

sugar levels and providing valuable insights for<br />

managing the disease.<br />

Glucose levels can be tested at home with a<br />

fingerstick device that uses a small drop of your<br />

blood on a test strip, or you can use a continuous<br />

glucose monitor (CGM), which takes the pain and the<br />

hassle out of the process.<br />

healthcare team. “There’s no such<br />

thing as diabetes reversal, but you<br />

can change your lifestyle enough<br />

to lower your blood sugar, often<br />

without medication.”<br />

Diabetes and Nutrition<br />

Education<br />

Diabetes management is a high<br />

priority at Marshall Medical Center.<br />

“I refer patients to Marshall’s<br />

Diabetes and Nutrition Education<br />

program when they are newly<br />

diagnosed or when they need help<br />

to better manage their diabetes,”<br />

says Dr. Neufeld. “The Marshall<br />

team is a fantastic resource for<br />

creating a plan to control diabetes<br />

in a way that is truly individualized.<br />

“A diabetes diagnosis can be<br />

profound and scary, so it’s<br />

important to have a support team,”<br />

she adds. “There are emotional<br />

and social adjustments as you<br />

make lifestyle changes. It can be<br />

challenging to change your diet,<br />

learn to check your blood sugar<br />

and take new medications.“<br />

Marshall’s program offers a<br />

team of physicians, registered<br />

nurses, and registered dietitians<br />

certified in diabetes and nutrition<br />

education. They partner with<br />

patients to develop a personalized<br />

plan including diet, exercise and<br />

medication recommendations.<br />

“These people link arms with a<br />

patient on their journey,” says<br />

Rachel Peigh, RN, who works<br />

with the Diabetes and Nutrition<br />

Education program.<br />

The team works with patients to<br />

help lower blood sugar levels and<br />

prevent diabetes complications<br />

while living comfortable, full<br />

lives. Patients are referred by<br />

their healthcare providers to the<br />

program, which is often covered<br />

by insurance.<br />

“We use practical approaches,”<br />

says Rachel. “We’ll make tweaks<br />

to your diet, without changing<br />

everything. We’ll help you make<br />

practical changes with things that<br />

work for you, considering lifestyle,<br />

medications, diet and exercise.”<br />

Marshall also provides free Healthy<br />

Living classes. Anyone seeking<br />

help with diabetes management is<br />

welcome to attend, and no referral<br />

is necessary.<br />

“I understand how some people<br />

may be hesitant to try a new<br />

program,” says Dr. Neufeld.<br />

“Perhaps they’ve suffered from<br />

diabetes for some time and they<br />

may not understand the benefit of<br />

having a diabetic nutritionist who<br />

can make a difference. Our team<br />

looks at a complete plan of care.<br />

I urge patients to try the program.<br />

It’s worth the time to attend even<br />

that first meeting.”<br />

Nutrition Education program,<br />

With a CGM, a flexible filament sensor is placed just<br />

under the skin to measure glucose levels 24 hours<br />

a day and a transmitter sends results to a wearable<br />

device or a smart phone. A GCM provides round-theclock<br />

insights on hourly or daily changes in glucose<br />

levels caused by factors including food, exercise,<br />

medication, sleep and stress.<br />

“A CGM helps us gather real-time information about<br />

habits that affect blood sugar levels,” says Rachel<br />

Peigh, RN, describing the experience patients have<br />

in Marshall’s Diabetes and Nutrition Education<br />

program.<br />

“It gives us the details we need to make small,<br />

sustainable changes. We look for things that can<br />

affect overall glucose management. Sometimes<br />

it’s as simple as changing the time you take your<br />

medication,” she says.<br />

Patients are often surprised by seeing the impact of<br />

stress and sleep on glucose levels. (Stress increases<br />

levels, and a good night’s sleep can lower them.)<br />

Monitors also illustrate how even a 10-minute walk<br />

can make a difference in lowering blood sugar.<br />

“Glucose monitoring helps patients avoid having<br />

high and lows. We can see which habits are affecting<br />

fluctuations in blood sugar levels with the goal<br />

of getting patients to steady levels—which helps<br />

preserve eye health, heart and kidney function, and<br />

nerves in fingers and toes,” Peigh says.<br />

Several types of fingerstick glucose monitors are<br />

sold over the counter at pharmacies and online, while<br />

a CGM requires a doctor’s prescription. Both types of<br />

monitors are available at Marshall Medical Center.<br />

The cost of home glucose meters and test strips<br />

varies. You’ll want to consider a device’s features,<br />

ease of use, information storage and support that’s<br />

available with your options. Choose a monitor that’s<br />

best for you by speaking with your health care<br />

provider or certified diabetes care and education<br />

specialist, and check with your insurance carrier<br />

regarding what’s covered under your plan.<br />

“Do you believe in angels?” asked Marilyn<br />

Schmidt, her blue eyes sparkling at the<br />

thought. “I’ve come to know a lot of angels,”<br />

she continued.<br />

Self-sufficient at 92 years of age, she lives<br />

independently in a tidy home overlooking<br />

a serene lake. Marilyn still drives, “I have<br />

driven for 72 years and never had a ticket<br />

or accident,” she proclaimed.<br />

Marilyn is spritely, active, and enjoys<br />

spending time with her tightknit<br />

community of neighbors. Her tribe<br />

has gotten just a little bit bigger lately,<br />

including caregivers from Marshall’s<br />

Community Care Network (CCN). About<br />

five years ago, Marilyn fractured 10<br />

vertebrae trying to move a heavy appliance<br />

by herself. Though she gets around ok, the<br />

injury has had lasting effects.<br />

Dr. Pete Barba has been Marilyn’s doctor<br />

for the past 16 years. “He’s not just a doctor,<br />

but a friend. Dr. Barba realized I did not<br />

have as much support as he desired for me,<br />

so he put me in touch with the Marshall<br />

Hospital-funded Community Care Network.<br />

Immediately more angels entered my<br />

life,” explained Marilyn. The CCN team<br />

arranged home visits, facilitated treatments,<br />

a pharmacist reviews her medication, and<br />

a specialist works with Marilyn regarding<br />

health goals and her care plan.<br />

“Everybody I have met at CCN is so special.<br />

They are interested in my wellbeing. They<br />

call weekly to ask if I’m ok and if there is<br />

anything I need,” she continued, “These are<br />

the kind of people I want in my life.”<br />

“I’ve been blessed with the most caring<br />

assistance in all aspects of my health<br />

care. I want to give back all that I have<br />

been given. Community Care Network<br />

Peace of mind is one of the greatest<br />

benefits of getting your estate in order,<br />

for the benefit of your loved ones and the<br />

charitable organizations you support.<br />

Consider managing your assets through<br />

wills and living trusts. Both provide the<br />

ability to distribute property and protect<br />

your loved ones after your passing.<br />

A living trust has the added benefit of<br />

avoiding probate.<br />

Everyone should have an up-to-date will<br />

or living trust, carefully thought through,<br />

and drafted by an attorney. With a will or<br />

living trust you can:<br />

•Maintain control and flexibility<br />

•Provide for family and loved ones<br />

•Distribute assets as you wish<br />

•Choose an executor or trustee<br />

•Nominate a guardian for dependents<br />

You can also use a will or living trust to<br />

support your favorite charity, including<br />

specific programs or services you believe<br />

in. Consider providing for the future<br />

of healthcare in your community by<br />

designating a healthcare organization<br />

who has touched your life.<br />

If You’re Depressed<br />

to make your depression worse. If<br />

you don’t have anyone you can talk<br />

to, try building new relationships or<br />

join a support group.<br />

3. Take care of yourself. When you’re<br />

feeling down, you may not want to<br />

do much of anything, but the better<br />

you can take care of yourself, the<br />

better you’ll likely feel. Do your best<br />

to eat healthy, exercise and sleep.<br />

Get outside for a few minutes a day<br />

to take a walk—the fresh air and<br />

movement will do you good. Avoid<br />

turning to alcohol or drugs to ease<br />

your pain.<br />

If you’ve been feeling sad or blue lately,<br />

here are some tips that may help.<br />

It’s natural to feel down on occasion.<br />

Sadness is a normal reaction to life<br />

events, such as the loss of a loved<br />

one, a change in family status or a<br />

tough situation. But if you find yourself<br />

feeling down more often than not, or<br />

you just can’t seem to shake your bad<br />

mood, it may be a sign that you are<br />

experiencing depression.<br />

Depression isn’t something you can<br />

easily snap out of. It may make you<br />

feel sad, hopeless and miserable. You<br />

may also have little energy or drive to<br />

do anything about it. But although it<br />

may be a difficult step to take, the best<br />

thing you can do if you’re depressed<br />

is to seek help.<br />

Many people find it difficult to ask<br />

for help. They may not even be sure<br />

that what they’re experiencing is<br />

depression and may not realize that<br />

anything can be done to change the<br />

way they feel. Even if you’re not ready<br />

to begin any type of formal treatment,<br />

there are still ways to cope with your<br />

depression so you start feeling better.<br />

Here are 5 steps you can take to<br />

manage depression:<br />

1. Get screened. If you’re not sure if<br />

what you’re feeling is depression,<br />

take an online quiz or talk to<br />

your doctor. There may also be<br />

counselors available through work<br />

or school. You can be screened<br />

for depression without having to<br />

step foot in a therapist’s office.<br />

Telehealth options are available.<br />

2. Stay connected. Talk to people who<br />

you feel comfortable with and can<br />

trust. Open up to them as much as<br />

possible about how you’re feeling<br />

and ask for any support you need.<br />

You may not feel like taking part in<br />

social activities, but isolation is likely<br />

4. Do things that make you feel<br />

good. Push yourself to do things<br />

you used to enjoy, even if you don’t<br />

feel much like doing them right now.<br />

Engage in a hobby, read, express<br />

yourself through art, take a walk<br />

through nature, play a sport, enjoy<br />

live music or volunteer. Once you get<br />

going, you may find that engaging in<br />

pleasurable activities makes you feel<br />

better.<br />

5. Accept help. There’s long been<br />

a stigma about mental health in<br />

our society, but it’s important to<br />

understand that depression is<br />

common—and having it doesn’t<br />

make you less of a person. The best<br />

thing you can do is to understand<br />

when you need help and to accept<br />

the help that’s available to you.<br />

Depression often requires treatment,<br />

including medication and/or other<br />

therapies. Finding the right treatment<br />

may take some time, but be open<br />

to trying different options until you<br />

figure out what works best for you.<br />

Asian Sticky Ribs<br />

Hawaiian Spiced Ahi Tuna<br />

South<br />

Fork<br />

Grille<br />

by RYAN MARTINEZ | photos by TAYLOR GILLESPIE<br />

If you were new to the area, it wouldn’t take long to<br />

uncover the El Dorado Hills Town Center. With a<br />

bustling restaurant scene, beautiful surroundings,<br />

and year-round community events, it’s the perfect<br />

place for a foodie night out. South Fork Grille<br />

perfectly upholds the prestige.<br />

From the same owners as Land Ocean and Sienna, South<br />

Fork Grille holds an air of sophistication that is on par with<br />

the ambience of their sister establishments. You can see the<br />

level of professionalism immediately from the staff, and you<br />

can feel it in the environs of the subdued lighting; both set<br />

the mood for after-work drinks with friends or a romantic<br />

date night out.<br />

My wife and I made early reservations, after being told<br />

there was nothing else available, and walked into a near<br />

empty restaurant. Not to fret—they assured us one of the<br />

reasons we couldn’t get a later time was due to the number<br />

of tables they reserve specifically for walk-ins.<br />

Like clockwork, our server brought us menus, drinks, and an<br />

appetizer suggestion—coconut curry steamed mussels—without<br />

pause. The heaping serving was delivered within minutes,<br />

alongside grilled crostini and a slightly sweet and spicy curry<br />

that tempted us to grab the bowl and slurp it up. As discipline<br />

compelled us, we politely (and enthusiastically) forked out the<br />

last of the mussels as we placed our entrée orders.<br />

Without delay, our Hawaiian spiced ahi tuna and Asian<br />

sticky ribs arrived for a surf n’ turf combo to share. For the<br />

“fitness special”<br />

tuna lovers, the server’s claim of the<br />

“freshest tuna anywhere in the area”<br />

held true. The line-caught tuna was<br />

indeed fresh, lain upon a bed of red<br />

curry macadamia nut rice and baby<br />

bok choy—a nice, light coupling<br />

after our appetizer.<br />

The large plate of tender pork<br />

ribs came lathered in house-made<br />

hoisin barbecue sauce and a (maybe<br />

not so) healthy serving of waffle<br />

fries and peanut coleslaw. The<br />

combination of big, bold flavors was<br />

a great evolution from the mussels,<br />

and kept us coming back for more.<br />

A dessert menu arrived quickly,<br />

and a recommendation was made—<br />

one that may sit in my personal<br />

record book of top sweet treats: ice<br />

cream pie. Now, imagine this: an<br />

Oreo cookie crust topped with a<br />

coffee ice cream center that stood<br />

nearly 10-inches tall with a thin,<br />

dense layer of chocolate and drizzle<br />

of caramel sauce—perfectly sliced<br />

into a picture-perfect piece of pie.<br />

That’s the dessert that arrived.<br />

If you love the ambience of the El<br />

Dorado Hills Town Center, the newly<br />

added South Fork Grille should<br />

immediately be added to your list of<br />

must-visit dining destinations.<br />

Pasta Zone is everything you want in a<br />

restaurant…neatly tied up with a bow(tie).<br />

(Sorry, bad pasta joke.) It’s family-run, everything is<br />

made fresh daily, and you can build-your-own pasta dish or choose<br />

one they’ve concocted themselves. It’s easy and fun! Step one: Pick<br />

your pasta. Rigatoni, fusilli, spaghetti, fettuccine, or shells. Step<br />

two: Select a sauce. Marinara, spicy red, pesto, or alfredo. Step three:<br />

Cheese! Mozzarella, vegan, cheddar, or parmesan. Step four: Pick your<br />

protein. Bacon, chicken, meatballs, or shrimp. Step five: Throw some<br />

veggies on top. Broccoli, roasted peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, or<br />

tomatoes. From there, they put your delicious dish into the oven till<br />

it's golden brown and bubbly. Pasta Zone is ideal for families because<br />

everyone gets exactly what they want. One of my daughters had basic<br />

buttered noodles; if she’s happy, we’re all happy. My other daughter<br />

built her own dish with rigatoni, alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese,<br />

shrimp, and mushrooms. If you’re a mac & cheese fan, you won’t<br />

know what to do. They have bacon mac & cheese, pepperoni mac<br />

& cheese, buffalo chicken mac & cheese, and one called “Fire Plate,”<br />

which has hot sauce and jalapeños. Just don’t forget the bread (they<br />

have homemade garlic knots and garlic bread) and a beverage (like<br />

the refreshingly cool “slushy of the day”)! — by JULIE RYAN<br />

Festive Sweet Treats by<br />

MEGAN WISKUS<br />

From cookies and toffee to brownies and bread, these festive recipes are sure to<br />

brighten, and sweeten, your holiday season.<br />

Holiday Toffee<br />

Submitted by Sugar Sweetery, Rancho Cordova,<br />

sugarsweetery.com @sugar_sweetery<br />

@sugarsweetery<br />

Toffee is a classic holiday treat—and making it is a great<br />

tradition! Place some in a festive tin or in parchment paper<br />

with a decorative ribbon or tag, and gift it to family,<br />

friends, teachers, or coworkers.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 2 cups salted butter (room<br />

temperature)<br />

• 2 cups sugar<br />

• 2 tsp. vanilla bean<br />

paste (or extract)<br />

• 2 cups<br />

chocolate<br />

chips<br />

(white, milk,<br />

or dark)<br />

VARIATIONS<br />

• Top with white<br />

chocolate and<br />

sprinkle with<br />

cinnamon and sugar;<br />

add chopped pecans<br />

into the toffee and top<br />

with dark chocolate and<br />

a sprinkle of sea salt; add<br />

sliced almonds into the<br />

toffee and top with milk<br />

chocolate and more sliced<br />

almonds; top with sprinkles<br />

and pretzels.<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

Place softened butter in a large<br />

pot and melt over medium heat.<br />

Once melted, add in the sugar, and<br />

stir until the mixture is combined.<br />

Bring the mixture to a boil, but do<br />

not stir it (stirring too much can cause it<br />

to crystalize). You’re looking to see it change<br />

to an amber color and will notice it thickening and<br />

smelling fantastic—like caramel popcorn!<br />

Reduce the heat to low and let it continue deepening in<br />

color; you’ll want it to become a dark amber, which can take<br />

5-10 minutes depending on your stovetop. If you have a<br />

thermometer, stick it into the mixture and wait until it reaches<br />

290 degrees. Once it reaches temp, turn off the stove and move<br />

the pot off the burner.<br />

Add in the vanilla and nuts, if using, give it a good<br />

stir, and spread the mixture evenly across a<br />

parchment-lined 9x13-inch cookie sheet. Let it<br />

rest for 5-7 minutes.<br />

After the toffee has cooled just a bit,<br />

add your choice of chocolate<br />

chips, let them melt for 3<br />

minutes, and then take<br />

an offset spatula and<br />

spread the melted<br />

chocolate evenly over<br />

the toffee.<br />

Sprinkle with your<br />

toppings of<br />

choice and<br />

let the toffee<br />

completely<br />

cool for<br />

5-6 hours or<br />

overnight.<br />

Once cooled,<br />

cut it with a knife<br />

or break it apart<br />

with gloved hands.<br />

TOP BAKING TIP:<br />

Use salted butter<br />

in dessert recipes;<br />

it helps cut the<br />

sweetness of the treat<br />

and adds more flavor!<br />

Cranberry Orange Dessert Loaf<br />

Submitted by Sugar Mill Bakery, Auburn, sugarmillbakeryca.com<br />

@thesugarmillbakery @sugarmillbakeryca<br />

Photos courtesy of their respective companies or organizations.<br />

My mom loves cranberry orange<br />

scones, so I created this loaf with her<br />

in mind! I wanted an after-dinner<br />

option that mimicked the breakfast<br />

treat she adores. This recipe is also<br />

great for sharing or can be made<br />

into mini loaves for holiday gifts.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 2 cups all-purpose flour<br />

• ½ tsp. salt<br />

• 1 tsp. baking soda<br />

• ⅓ cup oil<br />

• ½ cup brown sugar<br />

• ½ cup sugar<br />

• 1 tsp. vanilla extract<br />

• ½ tsp. orange extract<br />

• 1 tbsp. orange zest<br />

• 1 egg<br />

• 1 cup buttermilk<br />

• 1 cup dried cranberries<br />

GLAZE<br />

• ½ cup powdered sugar<br />

• 2 tsp. orange juice<br />

• Water<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.<br />

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda<br />

together in a small bowl.<br />

With a handheld or stand mixer,<br />

combine the oil, brown sugar, sugar,<br />

vanilla extract, orange extract, and<br />

orange zest. Add in the egg.<br />

Alternate adding in flour mixture and<br />

buttermilk in 3 parts, ending with<br />

the flour. Mix until combined. Fold in<br />

cranberries.<br />

Pour into a greased or parchmentlined<br />

9-inch loaf pan. Bake for 45<br />

minutes or until a toothpick comes<br />

out clean from the middle.<br />

Make the glaze by combining<br />

powdered sugar, orange juice, and<br />

enough water until it reaches your<br />

desired thickness. Pour over the loaf<br />

when it’s completely cool.<br />

TOP BAKING TIP: Use room temperature<br />

ingredients. The extra time you<br />

spend to let your ingredients come<br />

to the same temperature will help<br />

to create a beautiful (and delicious!)<br />

product.<br />

Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies<br />

Submitted by Ruby Made, Orangevale @rubymadeco<br />

As a kid, my best friend’s<br />

dad would often make us<br />

Abuelita hot chocolate. It was<br />

always a special memory,<br />

so I still love incorporating<br />

flavors of cinnamon into<br />

desserts whenever I can.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 1 ½ cups (180g) flour<br />

• 2 tsp. cinnamon<br />

• ¼ tsp. nutmeg<br />

• ⅛ tsp. cayenne powder<br />

(add more if you want<br />

more spice)<br />

• 4 large eggs (room<br />

temperature)<br />

• 1 ¼ cups Dutch-process<br />

cocoa<br />

• 1 tsp. salt<br />

• 1 tsp. baking powder<br />

• 1 tbsp. vanilla extract<br />

• 1 tsp. espresso powder<br />

or 1 tbsp. brewed coffee,<br />

optional for enhanced<br />

flavor<br />

• 2 sticks (227g) unsalted<br />

butter<br />

• 2 ¼ cups (447g) sugar<br />

• 2 cups (340g) chocolate<br />

chips<br />

• Cinnamon, for dusting<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

Preheat oven to 350<br />

degrees. Lightly grease a<br />

9x13-inch pan.<br />

Whisk together flour,<br />

cinnamon, nutmeg, and<br />

cayenne in a medium bowl.<br />

Beat eggs together in a<br />

large bowl with the cocoa,<br />

salt, baking powder, vanilla,<br />

and espresso powder/coffee<br />

(if using) until smooth.<br />

In a saucepan, melt the butter<br />

over medium low heat. Once<br />

melted, add the sugar, and<br />

stir to combine. Continue<br />

to heat, while stirring<br />

occasionally, until the mixture<br />

is hot but not bubbling. The<br />

appearance will become<br />

shiny as the sugar starts to<br />

dissolve. This step will help<br />

produce a shiny crinkle top.<br />

Add the hot butter-sugar<br />

mixture into the cocoa<br />

mixture. Stir until smooth. Add<br />

the flour mixture; stir until<br />

combined and smooth. Add<br />

the chocolate chips until just<br />

incorporated.<br />

Place the batter into the<br />

lightly greased pan. Bake<br />

for 26-30 minutes, until<br />

the edges feel set and the<br />

center looks moist but not<br />

uncooked. Test the center<br />

with a toothpick; you should<br />

see moist crumbs inside but<br />

no uncooked batter.<br />

Remove from the oven and<br />

let cool. Dust the top with<br />

cinnamon before serving.<br />

TOP BAKING TIP: Always weigh<br />

out your ingredients. Not every<br />

measuring cup/scoop is the<br />

same. This helps your baked<br />

goods stay consistent and<br />

gives the most accurate result<br />

when following a recipe.<br />

Stamped Coffee-Glazed<br />

Gingerbread Cookies<br />

Submitted by Teal Rabbit Bakery, Roseville, 916-345-4845,<br />

tealrabbitbakery.com @tealrabbitbakery<br />

Gingerbread has long been a tradition of the holiday season.<br />

I love these cookies for their festive exteriors, soft centers,<br />

holiday spices, and cozy coffee glaze. Enjoy a batch curled<br />

up on the couch or by the fire.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour<br />

• 2 tsp. ground ginger<br />

• 2 tsp. ground cinnamon<br />

• ¾ tsp. ground cloves<br />

• ½ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg)<br />

• ½ tsp. baking soda<br />

• ¾ tsp. salt<br />

• ½ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)<br />

• ½ cup dark-brown sugar (packed)<br />

• 1 egg<br />

• ¾ cup molasses<br />

Crunchy on the outside, chewy<br />

in the middle, and just enough<br />

Amaretto to make them a little<br />

boozy, these festive cookies are<br />

naturally gluten-free and remind<br />

me of my first trip to Italy during<br />

the holidays last year.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 2 ¼ cups ground superfine<br />

almond flour<br />

• 1 cup sugar<br />

• ½ tsp. salt<br />

• 2 large egg whites<br />

• 1 tbsp. Amaretto (almond<br />

liqueur)<br />

• 1 tsp. almond extract<br />

• ½ cup granulated sugar (for<br />

rolling)<br />

• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar (for<br />

rolling)<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a<br />

baking sheet with parchment paper.<br />

In a large bowl, whisk together<br />

the almond flour, sugar, and salt.<br />

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted<br />

with the whisk attachment, whisk<br />

the egg whites on high speed<br />

until they hold stiff peaks. Add in<br />

the Amaretto and almond extract,<br />

and whisk to combine.<br />

Using a spatula, gently fold<br />

half the egg white mixture into<br />

the almond flour mixture and<br />

combine. Add the remaining egg<br />

whites and mix until the batter is<br />

soft and very sticky.<br />

Using a small ice cream scoop<br />

or a tablespoon, scoop out the<br />

batter and roll into small balls<br />

using your hands. Roll the dough<br />

balls first into the granulated<br />

sugar and then into the<br />

confectioners’ sugar. Place on the<br />

baking sheet about 2 inches apart.<br />

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the<br />

cookies look “cracked” and form<br />

a crunchy exterior. The middle<br />

should still be soft. Transfer to a<br />

cooling rack and let cool for 10<br />

minutes before enjoying!<br />

TOP BAKING TIP: Always line your<br />

baking sheet with parchment<br />

paper or a silicone baking mat<br />

(even if the pan is nonstick). This<br />

will ensure even baking every time!<br />

Photos courtesy of their respective companies or organizations.<br />

GLAZE<br />

• ⅔ cup powdered sugar<br />

• 4 tsp. coffee<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, mix flour,<br />

spices, baking soda, and salt.<br />

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on<br />

medium high until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and<br />

molasses.<br />

Reduce speed to low and add in flour mixture in half cup<br />

increments until just combined.<br />

Divide dough in half. Wrap and refrigerate for at least one<br />

hour.<br />

Make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar and<br />

coffee.<br />

After the dough is chilled, flour your work surface, and roll<br />

it out to about ¼-inch thick. Press with a festive stamp and<br />

then cut out with a circle cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Place<br />

on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for about<br />

15 minutes.<br />

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool briefly, but glaze while still warm.<br />

TOP BAKING TIP: Always gather all your ingredients and premeasure<br />

them before getting started. This will help you stay<br />

organized and ensure all your ingredients are at the proper<br />

temperature.<br />

Holly Jolly Ginger Molasses Cookies<br />

Submitted by The Cookie Boss, El Dorado Hills,<br />

510-690-7995, thecookiebossedh.com<br />

@cookie_boss_edh @cookiebossedh<br />

My favorite holiday story growing up was The<br />

Gingerbread Man, so I love baking these ginger<br />

cookies, decorating them with my son, and<br />

recreating the fairy tale.<br />

INGREDIENTS<br />

• 2 sticks (226g) unsalted butter (room temperature)<br />

• 1 cup (220g) sugar<br />

• 1 egg (room temperature)<br />

• 1 cup dark or light molasses (do not use cooking or<br />

blackstrap molasses)<br />

• 2 tbsp. white vinegar<br />

• 5 cups all-purpose flour<br />

• 1 ½ tsp. baking soda<br />

• 2 tsp. ground ginger<br />

• 1 tsp. ground cinnamon<br />

• 1 tsp. ground cloves<br />

• ½ tsp. salt<br />

DIRECTIONS<br />

With a mixer on high speed, cream the butter for<br />

about 30 seconds or until the sticks have lost their<br />

shape. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is<br />

light and fluffy, usually 2-3 minutes (I use the paddle<br />

attachment on my stand mixer). Scrape down<br />

the sides as needed. Add the egg, molasses, and<br />

vinegar to the butter and sugar. Beat to combine<br />

well. The mixture will look a bit curdled; this is<br />

normal due to the vinegar reacting with the egg.<br />

In a separate bowl, gently mix the flour, baking soda,<br />

ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt with a whisk.<br />

Slowing add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients<br />

in portions, and ensure all ingredients combine well,<br />

just until the mixture stops sticking to the sides of the<br />

mixing bowl. DO NOT OVER MIX. The dough should<br />

be a little sticky and should come together when you<br />

press it in your hands without crumbling.<br />

Divide the dough into two even portions, roll out<br />

each portion on parchment paper, place them both<br />

(stacked), in a half-sheet baking tray, and cover the<br />

tray with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30-90 minutes.<br />

Photos courtesy of The Cookie Boss.<br />

When the dough is done chilling, preheat the<br />

oven to 350 degrees. Working in sections, roll the<br />

dough to ½-inch thick on a floured surface; cut into<br />

desired shapes or use cookie cutters. Place shapes<br />

on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a<br />

baking mat. Gather and reroll "scraps" of dough as<br />

needed, using all the dough.<br />

Bake for 10 minutes, let the cookies remain on the<br />

tray for 5 minutes, and then move to a cooling rack.<br />

Once cooled, decorate with Royal Icing.*<br />
