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

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

as a kid was pretty magical.

As an adult, some of the magic has certainly

slipped away. But now, with offspring of my

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.

For people whose month isn’t completely packed with parties and other

Christmassy commitments already, turn to our community calendar (page 30) for

holiday performances and parades aplenty, plus tree lightings, visits with Santa, toy

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

holiday hoopla is back and better than ever.

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

the coldest months of the year, we asked our friends at

Bloomscape—a company that brings greenhouse-quality

plants directly to your doorstep—for their 5 favorite

houseplants to buy in winter.

Women

Winemakers

by NELLY KISLYANKA

Did you know only 17.8% of winemakers in the U.S. are

women? Luckily, three local ladies aren’t letting those

odds stop them from pursuing their passion. As

winemakers, they’re involved in every step: fruit

selection, deciding which wines to produce, and

giving the go-ahead to begin harvesting grapes. Let’s

raise a glass to these women working hard to produce

the perfect glass of wine.

Kari Hazen

Rancho Roble Vineyards,

340 Fleming Road, Lincoln,

916-645-2075, ranchoroble.com

Since acquiring Rancho Roble Vineyards

with her husband in 2017, Kari Hazen has

worked tirelessly to grow the vineyard into

the thriving business many enjoy today.

First and foremost, she considers herself

a student of winemaking, investing time

into learning from her peers in Napa. For

Hazen, making good wine is more than

hard work; it’s about having fun.

How did you get into winemaking?

I bought a winery and literally got my

hands dirty in the vineyard. Now, my hands

are stained from winemaking!

What are the three most critical things

you’ve learned in making quality wine?

You must have excellent fruit that meets

your criteria; cleanliness is next to holiness;

and, finally, plan ahead and think about

each step to ensure you produce wine

your customers will love.

Favorite surprising or unexpected food

and wine pairing? Pumpkin pie and

chardonnay—so amazing!

What, for you, makes a good wine? One

that is well-balanced, fruit-forward, and

finishes smoothly.

What makes your wines unique? They

highlight the quality of the fruit and aren't

overly complex—just fruit-forward and

crisp with a smooth finish.

Emily Haines

Terra d’Oro, 20680 Shenandoah

School Road, Plymouth, 209-245-6942,

terradorowinery.com

Emily Haines brought her skills and

knowledge of winemaking to Terra

d’Oro in 2017. Before then, she was with

Wahluke Wine Company in Washington,

serving as director of winemaking for the

company’s Milbrandt Vineyards. Today,

her experience, passion, and degrees

in biotechnology and biochemistry are

helping to refine the next generation of

Terra d’Oro’s terroir-driven vino.

How did you get into winemaking?

I grew up thinking I would become a

scientist or a doctor, but after pursuing

a science degree and working in the

biomedical field for a few years, my path

steered me into wine. What began as

an interest in tasting and the process,

turned into me becoming a lab tech

and working my way up. I came to Terra

d’Oro in 2017 at the prospect of working

with new varieties in a new-to-me

region. It has been an honor to put my

winemaking stamp on the wines here.

What are the three most critical things

you’ve learned in making quality wine?

Patience—waiting for the grapes to ripen,

waiting for the juice to spend the right

amount of time on the skins, blending

until it's just right, and releasing the wine

only when it’s ready; balance—of flavors

in the wine, tannin perception, and oak

impression; and [intuition]—trusting

yourself and your gut to make the right

decisions.

Favorite surprising or unexpected

food and wine pairing? Unagi (eel) with

barbera, but my favorite everyday pairing

is anything barbecued with zinfandel.

What, for you, makes a good wine?

I feel that a great wine contains four

qualities that can be perceived in the

glass: fresh fruit, minerality, spice/herbs,

and structure.

What makes your wines unique? All in

all, our wines at Terra d’Oro come down

to balance. I try to create wines that will

please the newest of wine consumers

and the restaurant sommeliers—always

aiming for approachability and ease of

enjoyment.

Tatiana Vander Velde

Polynesian Girl Wine, 6020 Grizzly

Flat Road, Somerset, 530-344-4788,

polynesiangirlwine.com

Tatiana Vander Velde co-owns

Polynesian Girl Wine and oversees

the vineyard’s extensive operations.

She can be found amongst her

vines daily, talking to her plants

and nurturing them with music.

Her deep respect and connection

to the land are the foundation of

her vineyard management and

winemaking philosophy.

How did you get into winemaking?

My father is a hobbyist wine

and beer maker. After trying his

blackberry wine (which our family

still talks about!), I decided I wanted

to make wine, too. He showed me

that anyone can make great vino.

What are the three most critical

things you’ve learned in making

quality wine? You need quality

grapes; you need to enjoy doing

it; and you should have a good

supply of beer in your fridge while

winemaking.

Favorite surprising or unexpected

food and wine pairing?

Chardonnay and crunchy peanut

butter!

What, for you, makes a good

wine? A good wine is when you can

enjoy it with family and friends. I also

prefer a wine that has a full body,

structured mouthfeel, and a long,

balanced finish. An "aha!" wine for

me was a 2003 Mondavi Reserve

Merlot. I was on a cruise with my

family enjoying an amazing dinner

and when I took a sip of it, I truly fell

in love.

What makes your wines unique?

I make them from bud to bottle and

don’t use any pesticides or herbicide

in the vineyard. I also don’t hire

anyone; I just have my awesome

family and friends who come every

year to help me harvest. We pick

the grapes at 3 a.m., have a coffee

break by 8 a.m., and then process

the grapes before the sun is high up.

Our wines are an expression of labor,

love, family, and friends.

Know Your Trees

Stuck on which tree you want to bring

into your home for the holidays? Read

the brief below for a description of

trees commonly offered. Who knows…

maybe you’ll even branch out this year

into something new.

Douglas Fir

Possibly the most

recognizable Christmas

tree, the Douglas Fir

has been the most

popular species since

the ’20s. They’re typically very full and

have excellent symmetry.

Noble Fir

Another popular

option is the Noble

Fir, which has long,

deep bluish-green

needles and is dense

and very symmetrical.

Nordmann Fir

With its soft needles

and resistance to shed,

the Nordmann Fir is

perfect for hanging

ornaments. This is also

a great option for those sensitive to

smell as this tree lacks fragrance.

Silvertip

The Silvertip is a unique

tree, as the branches

are spread out, offering

the perfect space to

display ornaments.

They are bluish green in color; the silver

refers to its silvery new growth.

White Fir

Also known as

Concolor Fir, the White

Fir makes an attractive

Christmas tree for

its pyramid shape

and needle retention. Plus, when the

needles are crushed, they release a

delicious citrus scent.

Reinventing the Wheel

SPOTLIGHT ON

CERAMICISTS

by NELLY KISLYANKA

A craft that’s more than 20,000 years old, ceramics

is a versatile medium whose form, function, and

purpose vary vastly. A handful of local artists are

pushing boundaries and breathing new life into

the age-old art. Here are four ceramicists whose

handmade wares you’re sure to get fired up about.

Sandy Hilton

sandyhiltonpottery.com

Sandy Hilton is primarily a

functional potter, creating

pots, bowls, and other

useful goods that are

equally beautiful as they

are bright. Now retired,

the former community

and cultural services

manager for the City of

Folsom teaches at the Folsom

Art Center, where she shares

her passion for pottery with a

myriad of students.

Why do you love ceramics?

I’ve always been intrigued with

the feel of the earth between my

fingers. There are so many parts

to creating a ceramic artwork,

from forming the shape to

firing the clay and finally

glazing the work and firing it

again. Opening a freshly fired

glaze load is always exciting;

[you never know] if the kiln gods

[will be] good to [you]!

How do you avoid artists’

block?

I think all artists get a

degree of block from time

to time, but I always seem

to bounce out of it when I

see the work of other artists

or the enthusiasm of new

students.

What inspires you?

Much of my inspiration

comes from the natural

world—spending time

traveling and seeing

different cultures and

landscapes.

Marianne Waterstradt

mendedbeauty.com

Marianne Waterstradt

specializes in kintsugi, the

Japanese art of repairing

broken pottery by mending

the areas of breakage with

lacquer that’s dusted or mixed

with powdered gold, silver, or

platinum. According to the

artist, “Creating [these] pieces

help remind us that while we

experience events that make

us feel broken; once mended,

we’re more beautiful than we

were before.”

Why do you love ceramics?

It’s not the ceramic itself that

I love; rather, it’s the joy and

healing that comes from

transforming something that

was once broken and useless

into something more beautiful

and stronger than it originally

was.

How do you avoid artists’

block?

When I find myself “stuck”

on how to proceed with a

piece, my first step is to lay

down and begin meditating.

While my mind is clear, I try

to imagine the history of the

piece. From this open space, I

can usually envision ways in

which to mend it so that each

imperfection is highlighted

and made beautiful.

What inspires you?

I’ve received broken pieces

from around the world, and

the stories that accompany

them are always deeply

intriguing. One piece came

from a tribe deep in the

jungles of New Zealand;

another one from Paris; and

another from Africa. Each

piece I work on has a life that

has been temporarily dimmed

by its breaking. My inspiration

comes in seeking to reignite

the beauty of the original

pieces so they continue to lend

joy to future generations.

Brian Hayes

& Sarah Murray

hmpottery.com

Brian Hayes and

Sarah Murray

aren’t only a

couple; they create

functional pottery

together, too. From

vases, bowls, and

teapots, to platters,

mugs, and more

(Sarah also makes

handmade stoneware

and raku buttons;

available at the

Placerville Art Gallery),

their hand-glazed,

wonderfully whimsical

clay creations are both

rustic and elegant.

Why do you love

ceramics?

Sarah: For me, it really

comes down to the medium’s

natural substance and the

endless possibilities you

can create with it, the very

natural ways it can be fired,

and how it’s forever changed

after doing so. I also love

how it can become

your favorite bowl or

mug—a cherished,

useful, tactile, and

aesthetic part of one’s

everyday life.

Brian: You get to play

in mud and get dirty,

work with fire, and

create things that are

useful for people

to enjoy.

How do you avoid

artists’ block?

Sarah: I do

something else—

explore in nature

or play with clay

and see what

happens.

Brian: I go trout

fishing or work in

the garden.

What inspires you?

Sarah: The natural world;

I find inspiration in the

patterns, textures, and

designs all around us.

Brian: Time spent in the

mountains.

Dita Lewis-

Panter

cowgirlditapottery.com

Full-time potter Dita

Lewis-Panter creates

“artistically functional”

pieces, like chopstick

bowls, bottles, and

lidded jars. According

to the artist—who was

introduced to, and

fell in love with, the

medium back in high

school—“The spiritual

aspect of creating

something from a lump

of clay is profoundly

calming.” Currently, her

work can be found at the

Sacramento Fine Arts

Center and Art League of

Lincoln.

Why do you love

ceramics?

There’s just something

about getting my hands

in the clay. The feel of it

spinning

through my

fingers can

be quite

meditative.

It keeps me

present and

centered.

How do

you avoid

artists’

block?

Watching

artist demos on social

media usually inspire

me to get back at it. Also,

seeing finished pieces at

an art walk or in a gallery.

Sometimes, just looking

at nature and thinking

about a texture that

would look good on a pot.

What inspires you?

Being out in nature.

Whether it’s textures on

tree bark, grasses, or

leaves, they all inspire

designs. When it comes to

glazing, the ocean, stormy

skies, or rocky bluffs all

influence my work. Lately,

vibrant lights (like those

seen at concerts) have

caused me to experiment

with achieving richer

saturations.

ME, MYSELF, & I

7 Challenges

Simple Self-Care

by CAITLIN MCCULLOCH

Self-care has always been an important

component to mental health, yet many of us

take care of everyone but ourselves. We asked

local experts how to implement “me time” into

our modern day lives. Here are a few ideas

to get inspired—challenge yourself to try

one that feels right for you!

1

TAKE ACTION WITH AFFIRMATIONS

“Write a positive statement for something you

would like to change and say it 10-20 times a day for one

week until it's memorized. The next week, write a new

one and repeat the process. What you think is how you

feel. Change your thoughts, and you will change [your

life].” Therese Sorrentino, LMFT, theresesorrentinomft.

com

2

LOVE YOURSELF

“Accept the truth that you will never eliminate

the sabotaging part of yourself (I’m too lazy; I don’t

have time; I’m not good at this stuff; Other people are

more important, etc.). Instead, say to yourself, “Even

though I’m stressed and failing at self-care, I can totally

love myself for where I am in this moment. I can fill my

heart with love right now…presently.” Make more space

in your heart by expanding your chest or imagining the

feeling of opening. Actively being loving toward yourself

automatically becomes easier and more available for you.

Start slow, expect small results, and believe you’re building a

steady core of self-care reliance you’ll benefit from.” Jenifer

Novak Landers, Life Coach, fullyexpressedpotential.com

3

BE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT

“Perfectionism is exhausting, not to mention

impossible to obtain. When nothing less than perfect is

the goal, we end up feeling like a failure every time. If

you struggle with perfectionism, try exposing yourself

to being perfectly imperfect. Challenge yourself to wear

mismatched socks, pick your favorite nail polish color

instead of what’s in fashion, or donate something from

your closet that doesn’t reflect who you truly are.” Holly

Spotts, PsyD, fullcupwellness.com

4

STAY GROUNDED

“When implementing anything,

it’s always best to start out small; we

have the greatest success when it’s

sustainable. What makes you feel like

you? When do you feel recharged?

Reflecting on what is already working

or what might be draining your energy

is a good place to start. Finding ways

to feel grounded are some of the best

ways to care for yourself. Ideas might

include a slower morning by waking 30

minutes earlier, sipping your favorite

tea, journaling, yoga, stretching, or

listening to your favorite playlist or

podcast. Choose one and implement

it each day.” Ashlee Janzen, LMFT,

ashleejanzenlmft.com

5

JUST BREATHE

“Even 5-10 minutes a day can

make a big difference. There are many

great meditation apps out there to help.

I teach every patient I see to breathe,

relax their body, and meditate. It will

immediately calm down your nervous

system.” Therese Sorrentino, LMFT,

theresesorrentinomft.com

6

LIVE IN THE MOMENT

“How many times do you check

Instagram, email, or another app out

of habit? You catch yourself scrolling

and think, ‘Wait. I never consciously

chose to do this, yet here I am.’ If we’re

not careful, we can go through our

lives on autopilot—our body doing

one thing, and our mind somewhere

else, unsupervised, running amok.

Bring yourself back to the present

by connecting with yourself as you

move from one thing to another:

take a moment to check in when

you find yourself at the space in

between. How do you feel? What do

you want to do next? Where are your

thoughts? Being present puts us back

into the driver’s seat. We can move

from one thing to the next because

we choose to, not purely out of habit.

The more we practice (and it is a

practice!) being present and checking

in, the more in touch with ourselves,

others, and the world around us

we become.” Nancy Ryan, LMFT,

relationshiptherapycenter.com

7

USE YOUR HANDS

“If you’re a person who

constantly uses your brain, try giving it

a break during your down time by using

your hands instead. Working with your

hands [texting and typing don’t count!]

will give your mind a chance to relax and

reset, leading to less stress and an overall

better mood. You might try cooking

a new recipe, cleaning out a closet or

drawer, or tending a garden.” Holly Spotts,

PsyD, fullcupwellness.com

Take a Hike

Bootjack Camp to Stinson Beach

by RYAN MARTINEZ

LOCATED IN:

Mill Valley.

DISTANCE:

4.4 miles point to point; 8.8

miles out and back.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL:

Moderate.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:

The hike from Mill Valley

to Stinson Beach isn’t

terribly difficult, but the

steep descent down to the

coast will become more

challenging and tiresome

on the way back up, so

make sure you have some

gas in the tank. There are

also shuttles that will bring

you back if the trek seems

like too much. Wear shoes

with traction, dress in

layers, bring plenty of water

and snacks, and practice

Leave No Trace ethics.

WHY WE LOVE IT:

When snow is piled high in

the Sierra, great hiking is

only a short drive away, and

the Mill Valley/Muir Woods

area has some of the best

and most beautiful scenery.

FUEL UP:

When you walk 4.4

miles out of the woods

directly to Breakers Café

(stinsonbeachbreakerscafe.

com), a quaint beachside

eatery with a spacious

heated patio, do you have

to think twice? Seafood,

tacos, and American fare all

await—with cocktails and

draft beers to boot. Closed

Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

4 Pros of

Trekking

Poles

I used to think trekking

poles were trite, until

I started guiding

professionally in Torres

del Paine National Park in

Patagonia, Chile. Hiking

the steep terrain daily for

months taught me that

the pros of poles outweigh

the cons. Here are four

reasons to consider using

them.

1

Protect your knees on

steep descents. Your

knees will thank you for

the added support.

2

Increase your speed

and power. Having the

extra push will make

you stronger and

faster, especially on

uphill climbs.

3

Aid balance on uneven

terrain. Having trekking

poles is like an extra set

of limbs; they especially

come in handy crossing

streams.

4

Improve your posture.

Improving your posture

will help your back, your

endurance, and even

assist in breathing,

thus improving overall

performance.

Do

you have a

favorite trail in the

region you’d like to see

featured? Tell us all

about it at

reen burial is a meaningful, affordable and

G sustainable way of interment. Set amongst the

rolling foothills of Placer County, a 160-acre nature

preserve is home to meandering trails and old oaks. This is

Morgan Oaks Eternal Preserve, a serene area for green

burials, complete with exquisite natural beauty to honor a

loved one’s memory.

Green burial has been a popular alternative to conventional

burial that allows you or your loved one to return to

the earth naturally after passing. “Although an age-old

tradition, it has become better known for reducing the

use of toxic materials and preservatives that may pollute

the earth”, says Mark Heintz, co-founder of Morgan Oaks.

“Our green burial services include full-body interment,

cremation remains burial, remains scattering and memorial

tress so we can meet the needs of all those that are

environmentally conscious.”

Morgan Oaks doesn’t look like a traditional cemetery.

Visitors won’t see rows of tombstones but rather Interment

Gardens surrounded by walking trails, oak trees and riparian

areas throughout the preserve. As you move along through

this deeply personal journey, we at Morgan Oaks want you

to know that we’re here every step of the way. For more

COOL STUFF

Take a Spİn

To all the bicyclists reading—sorry!—this isn’t a story

about cycling. It’s about one of life’s greatest pleasures:

listening to vinyl.

by TERRY CARROLL

I recently wrote about

putting a good basic

audio system together,

but what comes after you

have the amplification and

speakers covered? If you

want to start listening

more critically and like

the idea of spinning

records, then it’s time

to talk turntables.

Vinyl is back in a big

way, and for good

reason: It’s one of

the most enjoyable

hobbies. Opening

the album, reading

the liner notes, laying it down on

the turntable, and dropping the

tonearm—BOOM! It’s real, it’s alive,

and it sounds spectacular.

I have several turntables—both

in my home and workplace—all of

which work well and sound great

(albeit different) and come at

different price points. I often hear

the comment: “Don’t they all sound

the same?” No, they don’t. Firstly,

we all hear differently, and secondly,

all audio gear has different sonic

signatures based on their parts and

engineering. It’s like saying all cars

are the same. Yes, they all get you

from point A to point B, but how they

do it is why we buy it. Does anyone

think a Honda Civic can be compared

to a Porsche 911? Some might, but

they clearly see cars as tools, not

engineering marvels.

Speaking of Porsche, the turntable

pictured here, the EAT-C Sharp,

is one I’ve had

the pleasure

of using for the past few weeks. I

refer to Porsche, because of the

product’s engineering and overall

design. From the moment I opened

it, it felt luxurious; every aspect just

felt right, including the speed control

module and connectors. Mounted on

the exceptional tonearm was the EAT

Jo No5 Cartridge, another item I’d

been wanting to demo. The combo

didn’t disappoint! I sat listening to Lyle

Lovett’s 12th of June and

Lyle was in the room—just

voice and music—superb.

Not only did the turntable

perform at a level higher

than expected, but it now

ranks in my top three

and costs far less than

the other two. At $7,200

with the cartridge, it’s not

an entry-level piece of

gear, but then neither is a

Porsche 911.

As for speakers, I recently test

drove a pair of Wharfedale

Lintons. In a word? Sublime.

They disappear, which (in my

opinion) is the goal. I’ve been

listening to a lot of Tom Petty

lately and recently purchased

the remastered Wildflowers. It’s

a recording I know well; however,

in this system, with the EAT-C

Sharp and the Wharfedale

Lintons, I felt like I was hearing

it for the first time. Whether

you’re listening to rock, jazz, or

classical, the Lintons can do it all,

but what stood out for me were

the voices. I played a favorite

album next, Sinatra-Basie, and

that’s when I knew these speakers

were something special. What’s more,

their exquisite look and matching

stands are perfection—akin to the

interior of a custom Jaguar. BTW—I

bought them—I couldn’t let them go!

These products found a forever

place in my home. It’s one of the

perils of writing about gear this

good, but darn it, somebody has to

do it!

ASK THE

EXPERT

by BELLA NOLEN

WHAT MAKES

A GREAT

MATTRESS?

European certified natural

and organic components

Ergonomic German

engineering

Handcrafted in California

Q: WHAT SHOULD

I LOOK FOR WHEN

CHOOSING A

THERAPIST?

A: It depends on the person

seeking treatment and their

concern(s). The most important

thing is to find someone who

has experience dealing with

the specific issue(s) you, or

your family member, may be

experiencing. If it's for kids,

then look for someone who

sees children and adolescents.

If it's an addiction issue, then

find a therapist who specializes

in chemical dependency. It’s

especially important when

seeking marriage counseling

to find a therapist who has a lot

of experience and training in

dealing with couples, as not all

licensed therapists do. Don't

be afraid to ask questions to

help you decide. And once you

find someone, the benefits are

endless. You’ll gain new insights

and perspectives into your

problems while learning some

new tools and coping skills, too.

Deck the Halls

by EMILY PETER-COREY

DIY

Holiday

Décor

When it comes to holiday décor there’s nothing better

than putting your own spin on it. We spoke to several

design (and DIY) experts who suggested easy ways to

celebrate the season in style.

Select your ring of choice (grapevine,

wire, etc.).

Attach your bundles all the way to the

desired ending spot.

Create small bundles of your chosen

ingredients and attach them to your

ring with floral wire. Secure them tightly

because they like to slide.

Strategically place a loose, romantic

silk ribbon bow, so it will hide your

jointing spot and add visual interest.

Cindy Magan, owner and lead

designer at Hillside Blooms Floristry

(hillsidebloomsfloristry.com), shares her

steps for creating a custom wreath that is sure

to have guests asking where you purchased it.

"Wreath making is not as hard as you would

think. With a few easy tools and a bit of elbow

grease, anyone can make their very own

custom wreath,” explains Magan.

The More the Merrier

When it comes to decorating your home

for the holidays, Cathy Tonks, founder and

interior designer at Designs With You In Mind

(designswithyouinmind.net) suggests bringing

outdoor elements inside. Below are some tips for

incorporating natural elements into your home.

• Dress up doorways, tablescapes, and fireplaces

with full, lush garlands—real or fake.

• Decorate with small potted pine tree plants

or pine sprigs to add a natural, organic feel to

your home.

• Add a festive pop of Christmas color to any

wreath, fireplace, or staircase by adding bright

red holly berries.

• Embrace texture and think outside the box by

using succulents. Their clean lines work well

during the holidays, and each variety offers a

unique, fun texture. You can even spray them

with glitter or add gold foil!

• Transform unconventional items, such as

globe vases, by adding a cheerful Christmas

scene or snowman inside. Amp up the

holiday flavor by placing the vase on top of a

round wreath base.

For a traditional style wreath, Chelsea

Edman, owner and designer at The

Wild Olive (thewildoliveflorist.com),

takes us through creating a full

wreath perfect for winter. “I prefer

using an assortment of greenery

for a beautiful combination of

textures while greeting your guests

with lovely scents like pine, cedar,

juniper, fir, redwood, rosemary,

and eucalyptus. All of these winter

greeneries are long-lasting and will

hold up well through the holiday

season.”

Step 1: Start with a wreath form,

greenery, floral wire, and wire

cutters. (The easiest wire to work

with is floral wire on a spool so that

you can use the same continuous

wire.)

Step 2: Start pulling your

greenery and see what

combinations you like together and

start making small bundles. Cut the

stems to the same length.

Step 3: On your first bundle, hold

the base and wrap the floral wire

around the bottom of the bundle

tightly twice, so it's nice and secure.

Then, lay the bundle on the wreath

form and tightly wrap the wire

around the form.

Step 4: Make another bundle,

trim the stems to the same length,

lay it directly on the wreath form,

and wrap the wire around the base

of the bundle and the wreath form

to make a strong bond between

the two. The closer the bundles, the

fuller and more uniform the wreath

will look. Make sure that the wire is

fully covered so that it doesn’t show.

Step 5: Continue to make bundles

and add them to the wreath form

one at a time until the wreath is

filled with greenery. When you get

to your last bundle, cut the wire

so you have several inches to work

with. Then, wrap the wire around

itself several times and tighten so

your greenery stays secure.

Step 6: Add pinecones, ribbon,

dried elements, or anything that gives

it the aesthetic you’re looking for and

attach with hot glue or wire.

BETTER CARE FOR YOU

The Best Exercises

for Your Joints

Keep your joints healthier by incorporating these

activities into your workout routine.

Your joints allow you to run, jump,

twist and turn. In fact, nearly every

movement you make is made possible

by the functioning of one or more joints

in your body. From your knees and hips

to your shoulders and wrists, joints play

a vital role in your life. That’s why it’s

important to take care of them as much

as possible.

As you age, your joints are subjected to

wear and tear. Joints can also be affected

by injury, overuse or conditions such

as arthritis. While you can’t control all

factors that influence how well your

joints work, there are steps you can take

to keep your joints as healthy as possible.

SPECIAL AD SECTION

One of the best ways to keep joints

healthier is to exercise regularly and

engage in daily activities like walking

and stretching. Exercise increases the

flexibility of joints and keeps muscles

that support joints stronger.

Here are the best exercises to do to keep

your joints in tip-top shape:

• Aerobic exercises — To ease strain

on your joints, stick to lower-intensity

activities like walking, biking, using

an elliptical trainer or swimming.

Avoid high impact exercise such

as jumping or running, especially

on hard surfaces like sidewalks or

streets, if you have joint pain or have

experienced any deterioration in joint

function.

• Strength training exercises —

Whether you use free weights, gym

equipment, resistance bands or your

own body weight, strength training

helps keep your muscles strong so

they can better support your joints.

Just don’t overdo it or you risk

injuring both muscles and joints.

Proper form is important when doing

any strength training exercise.

• Flexibility exercises — Activities

such as yoga, tai chi and pilates help

joints maintain flexibility so they can

go through their full range of motion

without pain. These activities are

low impact and can be performed

by almost anyone, regardless of age

or fitness level. Tai chi is especially

helpful for older adults because

it helps maintain better balance,

reducing the risk of falls.

• Stretching exercises — To loosen

joints and muscles, stretch before

and after aerobic and strength

training activities. Stretching before

activities helps get the blood flowing

and loosens stiffness in muscles and

joints. Stretching after activities is

ideal because muscles and joints are

more flexible, muscles are warm and

circulation is increased.

“Variety is key when your goal is to

keep joints healthy. Include aerobic,

muscle strengthening and flexibility

exercises in your workout routine.

Stretch multiple times a week.

Don’t overstress joints by doing the

same activities day after day—cross

training adds variety and is good

for your joints and muscles. Stick to

lower-impact activities, especially

if you have been experiencing any

pain. Maintaining a healthy weight

and avoiding injury as much as

possible are other ways to support

optimal joint health,” says Marshall

Orthopedist Taylor Vance, MD.

From Pandemic

to Endemic

Adapting to Life with COVID-19

While the virus hasn’t gone away, here are tips

to navigate our new normal.

In early 2020, our worlds were turned upside

down when the COVID-19 virus was labeled a

pandemic, causing disruption and upheaval

to life as we once knew it. Thankfully, life has

returned to some sense of normalcy, even

though the virus is far from being gone.

The best way to describe the current state of the

COVID-19 virus is that it’s on its way to reaching

endemic status. This means the disease is still

around (and is expected to remain indefinitely),

but is not causing significant disruption to our

daily lives. Hospitals are no longer reaching

critical capacity. Schools and businesses are

not closed. But there’s still the possibility of

contracting the virus and getting sick.

Endemics are nothing new. There are many

viruses that are endemic in our community,

including influenza (the flu), rhinovirus (the

common cold) and respiratory syncytial virus

(RSV). These viruses circulate and get people

sick but they don’t stop us from living our lives.

That’s what we’re facing with COVID-19, too.

What do we do if COVID-19 is endemic?

We live with endemics by protecting ourselves

as much as possible. “In the case of COVID-19,

that includes getting vaccinated and boosted

as recommended. Immunity from vaccinations,

as well as from natural infection, wanes over

time and does not guarantee you won’t catch

the virus. But data shows vaccines do a good

job of protecting against serious illness,

hospitalization and death so they’re still worth

it,” says Brian Goldsmith, MD, Marshall’s Chief

Medical Officer.

Having treatment options available also helps

us deal with endemics. People at high risk who

contract COVID-19 may be advised to take a

drug like Paxlovid to reduce symptoms and

lower the chance of serious illness. As different

variants of the virus emerge and our knowledge

about the disease increases, other treatments

options will likely be available in the future.

While we would like to imagine a world where

COVID-19 doesn’t exist anymore, that is not

our reality. That means we have to find ways to

go about our daily lives in as close to a normal

fashion as possible while taking steps to avoid

illness. These tips can help protect you from

being severely impacted by COVID-19:

• Continue to get boosted. Updated vaccine

boosters will soon be available to better

protect against newer omicron variants.

Although it’s not known yet how often

boosters will be recommended, it’s likely

we’ll have to continue to get them regularly.

This is something we already do with other

viruses. For example, every year flu shots

are recommended. Other vaccines require

periodic boosters as well.

• Take precautions in high risk situations.

The same steps that protected you during

the pandemic will help you now. Steer clear

of anyone you know who has COVID-19

or those who appear to have symptoms.

Consider wearing masks when you are in

large crowds, especially indoors. Wash your

hands often.

• Boost your immunity. Take steps to keep

your immune system strong. Filling your

plate with healthy foods, exercising regularly,

getting enough sleep, not smoking and

reducing stress are all ways to boost your

immunity, so you can better fight COVID-19

or any other illness you may get. As an added

bonus, you’ll improve your overall health in

the process.

COVER STORY

Live Healthily

with Diabetes

“If you can change

your mindset and

you have a good

support system, you

can also change

your lifestyle.”

Laura Morris didn’t know she had Type 2

Diabetes when she lost consciousness at

her home last December. Six days later

on Christmas morning, she awoke at

Marshall Medical Center and learned she

was in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)—a

serious complication of diabetes that

develops when the body can’t produce

enough insulin to process high levels of

blood sugar.

“I could have died,” says the 61-year-old

Pollock Pines resident. “My husband

said that having me wake up was the best

Christmas present ever.”

Laura hadn’t recognized the warning

signs of Type 2 Diabetes, including a skin

infection that wasn’t healing. Extreme

thirst indicated that her blood glucose

levels were dangerously high.

She spent five weeks rehabilitating in

a convalescent center, dependent on

insulin to regulate her blood sugar.

These days, Laura no longer requires

insulin shots. She’s working with

Marshall’s Diabetes and Nutrition

Education team to manage her blood

sugar through a healthy diet and

frequent glucose monitoring. She’s

successfully lost weight by tracking her

food choices, controlling portions and

reading food labels.

“There’s no cure for diabetes—but I want

to help myself get better,” Laura says. “I’m

keeping a positive attitude. I believe if you

can change your mindset and you have

a good support system, you can also

change your lifestyle.”

Diabetes facts

With diabetes, the body either doesn’t

make enough insulin or can’t use it as well

as it should to let blood sugar into your

body’s cells for use as energy. Over time,

too much sugar in your bloodstream can

cause serious health problems, including

heart and kidney disease, loss of vision

and nerve damage in hands and feet.

One way to consider how diabetes affects

the body is by visualizing blood with high

sugar levels as thick and syrupy, which

makes it difficult for the blood to pass

through the tiny veins and arteries in our

eyes, kidneys and finger tips.

Diabetes affects more than 1 in 10

Americans, and 1.5 million people will

be diagnosed with it this year, according

to the American Diabetes Association.

Yet, many people don’t even know they

have this chronic disease. That’s why

it’s important to recognize symptoms

including changes in vision, tingling in

hands and feet, and lingering fatigue.

Get your A1C level tested regularly if

you’re at risk.

Type 1 diabetes comes on suddenly

and usually affects younger people. It

is not preventable and requires daily

insulin shots. Type 2 diabetes—the most

common type—develops over many

years and can be prevented or delayed

with healthy lifestyle changes.

Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include

being overweight, not being physically

active, and being age 45 or older. Having

gestational diabetes, prediabetes, a

family history of the disease, or being

African American, Hispanic, Latino,

American Indian or Alaska Native also

contribute to the risk.

The good news: While there isn’t a cure

for diabetes, healthy lifestyle habits can

help manage blood sugar levels over the

long term. Annual health screenings can

catch diabetes early.

“Weight loss, exercise and dietary

changes are three ways to improve blood

glucose levels,” says Lacey Neufeld,

DNP, FNP-BC, a member of Laura’s

Blood Glucose Monitors

Manage Highs and Lows

For those with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, a home

glucose monitor is a critical tool for tracking blood

sugar levels and providing valuable insights for

managing the disease.

Glucose levels can be tested at home with a

fingerstick device that uses a small drop of your

blood on a test strip, or you can use a continuous

glucose monitor (CGM), which takes the pain and the

hassle out of the process.

healthcare team. “There’s no such

thing as diabetes reversal, but you

can change your lifestyle enough

to lower your blood sugar, often

without medication.”

Diabetes and Nutrition

Education

Diabetes management is a high

priority at Marshall Medical Center.

“I refer patients to Marshall’s

Diabetes and Nutrition Education

program when they are newly

diagnosed or when they need help

to better manage their diabetes,”

says Dr. Neufeld. “The Marshall

team is a fantastic resource for

creating a plan to control diabetes

in a way that is truly individualized.

“A diabetes diagnosis can be

profound and scary, so it’s

important to have a support team,”

she adds. “There are emotional

and social adjustments as you

make lifestyle changes. It can be

challenging to change your diet,

learn to check your blood sugar

and take new medications.“

Marshall’s program offers a

team of physicians, registered

nurses, and registered dietitians

certified in diabetes and nutrition

education. They partner with

patients to develop a personalized

plan including diet, exercise and

medication recommendations.

“These people link arms with a

patient on their journey,” says

Rachel Peigh, RN, who works

with the Diabetes and Nutrition

Education program.

The team works with patients to

help lower blood sugar levels and

prevent diabetes complications

while living comfortable, full

lives. Patients are referred by

their healthcare providers to the

program, which is often covered

by insurance.

“We use practical approaches,”

says Rachel. “We’ll make tweaks

to your diet, without changing

everything. We’ll help you make

practical changes with things that

work for you, considering lifestyle,

medications, diet and exercise.”

Marshall also provides free Healthy

Living classes. Anyone seeking

help with diabetes management is

welcome to attend, and no referral

is necessary.

“I understand how some people

may be hesitant to try a new

program,” says Dr. Neufeld.

“Perhaps they’ve suffered from

diabetes for some time and they

may not understand the benefit of

having a diabetic nutritionist who

can make a difference. Our team

looks at a complete plan of care.

I urge patients to try the program.

It’s worth the time to attend even

that first meeting.”

For more information about

Marshall’s Diabetes and

Nutrition Education program,

call 530-672-7021.

With a CGM, a flexible filament sensor is placed just

under the skin to measure glucose levels 24 hours

a day and a transmitter sends results to a wearable

device or a smart phone. A GCM provides round-theclock

insights on hourly or daily changes in glucose

levels caused by factors including food, exercise,

medication, sleep and stress.

“A CGM helps us gather real-time information about

habits that affect blood sugar levels,” says Rachel

Peigh, RN, describing the experience patients have

in Marshall’s Diabetes and Nutrition Education

program.

“It gives us the details we need to make small,

sustainable changes. We look for things that can

affect overall glucose management. Sometimes

it’s as simple as changing the time you take your

medication,” she says.

Patients are often surprised by seeing the impact of

stress and sleep on glucose levels. (Stress increases

levels, and a good night’s sleep can lower them.)

Monitors also illustrate how even a 10-minute walk

can make a difference in lowering blood sugar.

“Glucose monitoring helps patients avoid having

high and lows. We can see which habits are affecting

fluctuations in blood sugar levels with the goal

of getting patients to steady levels—which helps

preserve eye health, heart and kidney function, and

nerves in fingers and toes,” Peigh says.

Several types of fingerstick glucose monitors are

sold over the counter at pharmacies and online, while

a CGM requires a doctor’s prescription. Both types of

monitors are available at Marshall Medical Center.

The cost of home glucose meters and test strips

varies. You’ll want to consider a device’s features,

ease of use, information storage and support that’s

available with your options. Choose a monitor that’s

best for you by speaking with your health care

provider or certified diabetes care and education

specialist, and check with your insurance carrier

regarding what’s covered under your plan.

“Do you believe in angels?” asked Marilyn

Schmidt, her blue eyes sparkling at the

thought. “I’ve come to know a lot of angels,”

she continued.

Self-sufficient at 92 years of age, she lives

independently in a tidy home overlooking

a serene lake. Marilyn still drives, “I have

driven for 72 years and never had a ticket

or accident,” she proclaimed.

Marilyn is spritely, active, and enjoys

spending time with her tightknit

community of neighbors. Her tribe

has gotten just a little bit bigger lately,

including caregivers from Marshall’s

Community Care Network (CCN). About

five years ago, Marilyn fractured 10

vertebrae trying to move a heavy appliance

by herself. Though she gets around ok, the

injury has had lasting effects.

Dr. Pete Barba has been Marilyn’s doctor

for the past 16 years. “He’s not just a doctor,

but a friend. Dr. Barba realized I did not

have as much support as he desired for me,

so he put me in touch with the Marshall

Hospital-funded Community Care Network.

Immediately more angels entered my

life,” explained Marilyn. The CCN team

arranged home visits, facilitated treatments,

a pharmacist reviews her medication, and

a specialist works with Marilyn regarding

health goals and her care plan.

“Everybody I have met at CCN is so special.

They are interested in my wellbeing. They

call weekly to ask if I’m ok and if there is

anything I need,” she continued, “These are

the kind of people I want in my life.”

“I’ve been blessed with the most caring

assistance in all aspects of my health

care. I want to give back all that I have

been given. Community Care Network

will be remembered in my trust for

compassionate, never-ending care,”

Marilyn shared.

She reached for a piece of paper to read aloud

Peace of mind is one of the greatest

benefits of getting your estate in order,

for the benefit of your loved ones and the

charitable organizations you support.

Consider managing your assets through

wills and living trusts. Both provide the

ability to distribute property and protect

your loved ones after your passing.

A living trust has the added benefit of

avoiding probate.

Everyone should have an up-to-date will

or living trust, carefully thought through,

and drafted by an attorney. With a will or

living trust you can:

•Maintain control and flexibility

•Provide for family and loved ones

•Distribute assets as you wish

•Choose an executor or trustee

•Nominate a guardian for dependents

You can also use a will or living trust to

support your favorite charity, including

specific programs or services you believe

in. Consider providing for the future

of healthcare in your community by

designating a healthcare organization

who has touched your life.

Try This

If You’re Depressed

to make your depression worse. If

you don’t have anyone you can talk

to, try building new relationships or

join a support group.

3. Take care of yourself. When you’re

feeling down, you may not want to

do much of anything, but the better

you can take care of yourself, the

better you’ll likely feel. Do your best

to eat healthy, exercise and sleep.

Get outside for a few minutes a day

to take a walk—the fresh air and

movement will do you good. Avoid

turning to alcohol or drugs to ease

your pain.

If you’ve been feeling sad or blue lately,

here are some tips that may help.

It’s natural to feel down on occasion.

Sadness is a normal reaction to life

events, such as the loss of a loved

one, a change in family status or a

tough situation. But if you find yourself

feeling down more often than not, or

you just can’t seem to shake your bad

mood, it may be a sign that you are

experiencing depression.

Depression isn’t something you can

easily snap out of. It may make you

feel sad, hopeless and miserable. You

may also have little energy or drive to

do anything about it. But although it

may be a difficult step to take, the best

thing you can do if you’re depressed

is to seek help.

Many people find it difficult to ask

for help. They may not even be sure

that what they’re experiencing is

depression and may not realize that

anything can be done to change the

way they feel. Even if you’re not ready

to begin any type of formal treatment,

there are still ways to cope with your

depression so you start feeling better.

Here are 5 steps you can take to

manage depression:

1. Get screened. If you’re not sure if

what you’re feeling is depression,

take an online quiz or talk to

your doctor. There may also be

counselors available through work

or school. You can be screened

for depression without having to

step foot in a therapist’s office.

Telehealth options are available.

2. Stay connected. Talk to people who

you feel comfortable with and can

trust. Open up to them as much as

possible about how you’re feeling

and ask for any support you need.

You may not feel like taking part in

social activities, but isolation is likely

4. Do things that make you feel

good. Push yourself to do things

you used to enjoy, even if you don’t

feel much like doing them right now.

Engage in a hobby, read, express

yourself through art, take a walk

through nature, play a sport, enjoy

live music or volunteer. Once you get

going, you may find that engaging in

pleasurable activities makes you feel

better.

5. Accept help. There’s long been

a stigma about mental health in

our society, but it’s important to

understand that depression is

common—and having it doesn’t

make you less of a person. The best

thing you can do is to understand

when you need help and to accept

the help that’s available to you.

Depression often requires treatment,

including medication and/or other

therapies. Finding the right treatment

may take some time, but be open

to trying different options until you

figure out what works best for you.

Contact your primary care provider

for a consultation or referral to a

licensed mental health professional.

For the tuna

Hawaiian Spiced Ahi Tuna

South

Grille

If you were new to the area, it wouldn’t take long to

uncover the El Dorado Hills Town Center. With a

bustling restaurant scene, beautiful surroundings,

and year-round community events, it’s the perfect

place for a foodie night out. South Fork Grille

perfectly upholds the prestige.

From the same owners as Land Ocean and Sienna, South

Fork Grille holds an air of sophistication that is on par with

the ambience of their sister establishments. You can see the

level of professionalism immediately from the staff, and you

can feel it in the environs of the subdued lighting; both set

the mood for after-work drinks with friends or a romantic

date night out.

My wife and I made early reservations, after being told

there was nothing else available, and walked into a near

empty restaurant. Not to fret—they assured us one of the

reasons we couldn’t get a later time was due to the number

of tables they reserve specifically for walk-ins.

Like clockwork, our server brought us menus, drinks, and an

appetizer suggestion—coconut curry steamed mussels—without

pause. The heaping serving was delivered within minutes,

alongside grilled crostini and a slightly sweet and spicy curry

that tempted us to grab the bowl and slurp it up. As discipline

compelled us, we politely (and enthusiastically) forked out the

last of the mussels as we placed our entrée orders.

Without delay, our Hawaiian spiced ahi tuna and Asian

sticky ribs arrived for a surf n’ turf combo to share. For the

“freshest tuna anywhere in the area”

held true. The line-caught tuna was

indeed fresh, lain upon a bed of red

curry macadamia nut rice and baby

bok choy—a nice, light coupling

after our appetizer.

The large plate of tender pork

ribs came lathered in house-made

hoisin barbecue sauce and a (maybe

not so) healthy serving of waffle

fries and peanut coleslaw. The

combination of big, bold flavors was

a great evolution from the mussels,

and kept us coming back for more.

A dessert menu arrived quickly,

and a recommendation was made—

one that may sit in my personal

record book of top sweet treats: ice

cream pie. Now, imagine this: an

Oreo cookie crust topped with a

coffee ice cream center that stood

nearly 10-inches tall with a thin,

dense layer of chocolate and drizzle

of caramel sauce—perfectly sliced

into a picture-perfect piece of pie.

That’s the dessert that arrived.

added South Fork Grille should

immediately be added to your list of

must-visit dining destinations.

Pasta Zone is everything you want in a

restaurant…neatly tied up with a bow(tie).

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

made fresh daily, and you can build-your-own pasta dish or choose

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

your pasta. Rigatoni, fusilli, spaghetti, fettuccine, or shells. Step

two: Select a sauce. Marinara, spicy red, pesto, or alfredo. Step three:

Cheese! Mozzarella, vegan, cheddar, or parmesan. Step four: Pick your

protein. Bacon, chicken, meatballs, or shrimp. Step five: Throw some

veggies on top. Broccoli, roasted peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, or

tomatoes. From there, they put your delicious dish into the oven till

it's golden brown and bubbly. Pasta Zone is ideal for families because

everyone gets exactly what they want. One of my daughters had basic

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

built her own dish with rigatoni, alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese,

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

know what to do. They have bacon mac & cheese, pepperoni mac

& cheese, buffalo chicken mac & cheese, and one called “Fire Plate,”

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

have homemade garlic knots and garlic bread) and a beverage (like

the refreshingly cool “slushy of the day”)! — by JULIE RYAN

Make it Merry

Festive Sweet Treats by

MEGAN WISKUS

From cookies and toffee to brownies and bread, these festive recipes are sure to

brighten, and sweeten, your holiday season.

Holiday Toffee

Submitted by Sugar Sweetery, Rancho Cordova,

sugarsweetery.com @sugar_sweetery

@sugarsweetery

Toffee is a classic holiday treat—and making it is a great

tradition! Place some in a festive tin or in parchment paper

with a decorative ribbon or tag, and gift it to family,

friends, teachers, or coworkers.

INGREDIENTS

• 2 cups salted butter (room

temperature)

• 2 cups sugar

• 2 tsp. vanilla bean

paste (or extract)

• 2 cups

chocolate

chips

(white, milk,

or dark)

VARIATIONS

• Top with white

chocolate and

sprinkle with

cinnamon and sugar;

add chopped pecans

into the toffee and top

with dark chocolate and

a sprinkle of sea salt; add

sliced almonds into the

toffee and top with milk

chocolate and more sliced

almonds; top with sprinkles

and pretzels.

DIRECTIONS

Place softened butter in a large

pot and melt over medium heat.

Once melted, add in the sugar, and

stir until the mixture is combined.

Bring the mixture to a boil, but do

not stir it (stirring too much can cause it

to crystalize). You’re looking to see it change

to an amber color and will notice it thickening and

smelling fantastic—like caramel popcorn!

Reduce the heat to low and let it continue deepening in

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

5-10 minutes depending on your stovetop. If you have a

thermometer, stick it into the mixture and wait until it reaches

290 degrees. Once it reaches temp, turn off the stove and move

the pot off the burner.

Add in the vanilla and nuts, if using, give it a good

stir, and spread the mixture evenly across a

parchment-lined 9x13-inch cookie sheet. Let it

rest for 5-7 minutes.

After the toffee has cooled just a bit,

add your choice of chocolate

chips, let them melt for 3

minutes, and then take

an offset spatula and

spread the melted

chocolate evenly over

the toffee.

Sprinkle with your

toppings of

choice and

let the toffee

completely

cool for

5-6 hours or

overnight.

Once cooled,

cut it with a knife

or break it apart

with gloved hands.

TOP BAKING TIP:

Use salted butter

in dessert recipes;

it helps cut the

sweetness of the treat

and adds more flavor!

Cranberry Orange Dessert Loaf

Submitted by Sugar Mill Bakery, Auburn, sugarmillbakeryca.com

@thesugarmillbakery @sugarmillbakeryca

Photos courtesy of their respective companies or organizations.

My mom loves cranberry orange

scones, so I created this loaf with her

in mind! I wanted an after-dinner

option that mimicked the breakfast

treat she adores. This recipe is also

great for sharing or can be made

into mini loaves for holiday gifts.

INGREDIENTS

• 2 cups all-purpose flour

• ½ tsp. salt

• 1 tsp. baking soda

• ⅓ cup oil

• ½ cup brown sugar

• ½ cup sugar

• 1 tsp. vanilla extract

• ½ tsp. orange extract

• 1 tbsp. orange zest

• 1 egg

• 1 cup buttermilk

• 1 cup dried cranberries

GLAZE

• ½ cup powdered sugar

• 2 tsp. orange juice

• Water

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda

together in a small bowl.

With a handheld or stand mixer,

combine the oil, brown sugar, sugar,

vanilla extract, orange extract, and

orange zest. Add in the egg.

Alternate adding in flour mixture and

buttermilk in 3 parts, ending with

the flour. Mix until combined. Fold in

cranberries.

Pour into a greased or parchmentlined

9-inch loaf pan. Bake for 45

minutes or until a toothpick comes

out clean from the middle.

Make the glaze by combining

powdered sugar, orange juice, and

enough water until it reaches your

desired thickness. Pour over the loaf

when it’s completely cool.

TOP BAKING TIP: Use room temperature

ingredients. The extra time you

spend to let your ingredients come

to the same temperature will help

to create a beautiful (and delicious!)

product.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Brownies

Submitted by Ruby Made, Orangevale @rubymadeco

As a kid, my best friend’s

dad would often make us

Abuelita hot chocolate. It was

always a special memory,

so I still love incorporating

flavors of cinnamon into

desserts whenever I can.

INGREDIENTS

• 1 ½ cups (180g) flour

• 2 tsp. cinnamon

• ¼ tsp. nutmeg

• ⅛ tsp. cayenne powder

(add more if you want

more spice)

• 4 large eggs (room

temperature)

• 1 ¼ cups Dutch-process

cocoa

• 1 tsp. salt

• 1 tsp. baking powder

• 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

• 1 tsp. espresso powder

or 1 tbsp. brewed coffee,

optional for enhanced

flavor

• 2 sticks (227g) unsalted

butter

• 2 ¼ cups (447g) sugar

• 2 cups (340g) chocolate

chips

• Cinnamon, for dusting

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350

degrees. Lightly grease a

9x13-inch pan.

Whisk together flour,

cinnamon, nutmeg, and

cayenne in a medium bowl.

Beat eggs together in a

large bowl with the cocoa,

salt, baking powder, vanilla,

and espresso powder/coffee

(if using) until smooth.

In a saucepan, melt the butter

over medium low heat. Once

melted, add the sugar, and

stir to combine. Continue

to heat, while stirring

occasionally, until the mixture

is hot but not bubbling. The

appearance will become

shiny as the sugar starts to

dissolve. This step will help

produce a shiny crinkle top.

Add the hot butter-sugar

mixture into the cocoa

mixture. Stir until smooth. Add

the flour mixture; stir until

combined and smooth. Add

the chocolate chips until just

incorporated.

Place the batter into the

lightly greased pan. Bake

for 26-30 minutes, until

the edges feel set and the

center looks moist but not

uncooked. Test the center

with a toothpick; you should

see moist crumbs inside but

no uncooked batter.

Remove from the oven and

let cool. Dust the top with

cinnamon before serving.

TOP BAKING TIP: Always weigh

out your ingredients. Not every

measuring cup/scoop is the

same. This helps your baked

goods stay consistent and

gives the most accurate result

when following a recipe.

Soft Amaretti Cookies (Italian Snowballs)

Submitted by Taylor Made Desserts, Fair Oaks, 916-228-0520,

Stamped Coffee-Glazed

Gingerbread Cookies

Submitted by Teal Rabbit Bakery, Roseville, 916-345-4845,

tealrabbitbakery.com @tealrabbitbakery

Gingerbread has long been a tradition of the holiday season.

I love these cookies for their festive exteriors, soft centers,

holiday spices, and cozy coffee glaze. Enjoy a batch curled

up on the couch or by the fire.

INGREDIENTS

• 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

• 2 tsp. ground ginger

• 2 tsp. ground cinnamon

• ¾ tsp. ground cloves

• ½ tsp. freshly grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg)

• ½ tsp. baking soda

• ¾ tsp. salt

• ½ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)

• ½ cup dark-brown sugar (packed)

• 1 egg

• ¾ cup molasses

Crunchy on the outside, chewy

in the middle, and just enough

Amaretto to make them a little

boozy, these festive cookies are

naturally gluten-free and remind

me of my first trip to Italy during

the holidays last year.

INGREDIENTS

• 2 ¼ cups ground superfine

almond flour

• 1 cup sugar

• ½ tsp. salt

• 2 large egg whites

• 1 tbsp. Amaretto (almond

liqueur)

• 1 tsp. almond extract

• ½ cup granulated sugar (for

rolling)

• 1 cup confectioners’ sugar (for

rolling)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a

baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together

the almond flour, sugar, and salt.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted

with the whisk attachment, whisk

the egg whites on high speed

until they hold stiff peaks. Add in

the Amaretto and almond extract,

and whisk to combine.

Using a spatula, gently fold

half the egg white mixture into

the almond flour mixture and

combine. Add the remaining egg

whites and mix until the batter is

soft and very sticky.

Using a small ice cream scoop

or a tablespoon, scoop out the

batter and roll into small balls

using your hands. Roll the dough

balls first into the granulated

sugar and then into the

confectioners’ sugar. Place on the

baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until the

cookies look “cracked” and form

a crunchy exterior. The middle

should still be soft. Transfer to a

cooling rack and let cool for 10

minutes before enjoying!

TOP BAKING TIP: Always line your

baking sheet with parchment

paper or a silicone baking mat

(even if the pan is nonstick). This

will ensure even baking every time!

GLAZE

• ⅔ cup powdered sugar

• 4 tsp. coffee

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, mix flour,

spices, baking soda, and salt.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on

medium high until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and

molasses.

Reduce speed to low and add in flour mixture in half cup

increments until just combined.

Divide dough in half. Wrap and refrigerate for at least one

hour.

Make the glaze by combining the powdered sugar and

coffee.

After the dough is chilled, flour your work surface, and roll

it out to about ¼-inch thick. Press with a festive stamp and

then cut out with a circle cookie cutter or biscuit cutter. Place

on a parchment-lined baking sheet and refrigerate for about

15 minutes.

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

TOP BAKING TIP: Always gather all your ingredients and premeasure

them before getting started. This will help you stay

organized and ensure all your ingredients are at the proper

temperature.

Holly Jolly Ginger Molasses Cookies

Submitted by The Cookie Boss, El Dorado Hills,

510-690-7995, thecookiebossedh.com

@cookie_boss_edh @cookiebossedh

My favorite holiday story growing up was The

Gingerbread Man, so I love baking these ginger

cookies, decorating them with my son, and

recreating the fairy tale.

INGREDIENTS

• 2 sticks (226g) unsalted butter (room temperature)

• 1 cup (220g) sugar

• 1 egg (room temperature)

• 1 cup dark or light molasses (do not use cooking or

blackstrap molasses)

• 2 tbsp. white vinegar

• 5 cups all-purpose flour

• 1 ½ tsp. baking soda

• 2 tsp. ground ginger

• 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

• 1 tsp. ground cloves

• ½ tsp. salt

DIRECTIONS

With a mixer on high speed, cream the butter for

about 30 seconds or until the sticks have lost their

shape. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is

light and fluffy, usually 2-3 minutes (I use the paddle

attachment on my stand mixer). Scrape down

the sides as needed. Add the egg, molasses, and

vinegar to the butter and sugar. Beat to combine

well. The mixture will look a bit curdled; this is

normal due to the vinegar reacting with the egg.

In a separate bowl, gently mix the flour, baking soda,

ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt with a whisk.

Slowing add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients

in portions, and ensure all ingredients combine well,

just until the mixture stops sticking to the sides of the

mixing bowl. DO NOT OVER MIX. The dough should

be a little sticky and should come together when you

press it in your hands without crumbling.

Divide the dough into two even portions, roll out

each portion on parchment paper, place them both

(stacked), in a half-sheet baking tray, and cover the

tray with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30-90 minutes.

Photos courtesy of The Cookie Boss.

When the dough is done chilling, preheat the

oven to 350 degrees. Working in sections, roll the

dough to ½-inch thick on a floured surface; cut into

desired shapes or use cookie cutters. Place shapes

on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a

baking mat. Gather and reroll "scraps" of dough as

needed, using all the dough.

Bake for 10 minutes, let the cookies remain on the

tray for 5 minutes, and then move to a cooling rack.

Once cooled, decorate with Royal Icing.*
