Style Magazine - September 2023

This month’s magazine is full of wonderful ways to encourage curiosity and step out of your comfort zone—whether it’s through food, fashion, or fitness. September 23 marks the start of a new season, after all, so why not experience something new to you, too? Our feature, “A Taste of Italy” is a perfect place to begin. Starting on page 66, STYLE’s carb-loving contributor Sharon Penny takes your taste buds on a journey to 25 must-try Italian eateries (and suggests a to-die-for dish at each). Next time the craving for a hearty plate of pasta swimming in house-made sauce comes, give your go-to restaurant a rest, and check out one of these establishments—and entrées—instead. Whether your palate prefers simple and straightforward fare like spaghetti and meatballs, creative twists on the classics (chicken piccata pizza, anyone?), or traditional recipes cooked correctly like real-deal Roman fettuccine Alfredo, there are ample options for all. As autumn arrives and the leaves begin to change, why not change up your wardrobe, too? Writer Caitlin McCulloch consulted with local boutique owners about the season’s latest looks in “Falling for Fashion” (page 54). Teaser: Don’t be surprised if you see boxy blazers (shoulder pads optional); bold, geometric patterns; wide-leg, loose denim; and lots of layers coming to a mannequin near you. Finally, when it comes to workouts, challenge yourself with outdoor enthusiast Ryan Martinez’s “Take a Hike” suggestion (page 40) to Glacier Lakes Trail—a moderately difficult, 7.4-mile adventure that promises stunning scenery, a serene lake, and super sore muscles. Even though doing something different may seem daunting, like I told my daughter during dinner last night (as she stared begrudgingly at her broccoli): “Just try it—you might like it!” —Megan megan@stylemg.com @meggoeggowaffle

Have you ever had, or heard of, ube?<br />

If not, you’re missing out on one of<br />

the most delicious food fads. Like<br />

most culinary trends, ube has been<br />

around for a LONG time (more than<br />

four centuries in the Philippines!) but<br />

is finally becoming more mainstream stateside.<br />

The first time I tasted the vibrantly violet purple<br />

yam—with a mild, sweet flavor and coconutty<br />

aroma—was when my mother-in-law (who’s<br />

culturally Filipino) invited me over for her famous<br />

“halo-halo.” Made by mixing ube ice cream with<br />

sweetened condensed milk, crushed ice, red beans,<br />

flan, mango jelly, fresh fruit, and more—it was love at<br />

first bite. Since then, I never pass up the opportunity<br />

to order ube anything when I see it on a menu. Ube<br />

cookies? Ube coffee? Ube colada? Yes, please! If you’re looking for some local spots<br />

to savor the flavor, turn to Pauline Arroyo’s article “Unstoppable Ube!” on page 88.<br />

Speaking of trying new things, this month’s magazine is full of wonderful ways to<br />

encourage curiosity and step out of your comfort zone—whether it’s through food,<br />

fashion, or fitness. <strong>September</strong> 23 marks the start of a new season, after all, so why<br />

not experience something new to you, too?<br />

66, STYLE ’s carb-loving contributor Sharon Penny takes your taste buds on a<br />

journey to 25 must-try Italian eateries (and suggests a to-die-for dish at each).<br />

Next time the craving for a hearty plate<br />

of pasta swimming in house-made sauce<br />

“We keep moving<br />

comes, give your go-to restaurant a rest,<br />

forward, opening and check out one of these establishments—<br />

and entrées—instead. Whether your palate<br />

too? Writer Caitlin McCulloch consulted<br />

—Walt Disney<br />

with local boutique owners about the<br />

season’s latest looks in “Falling for Fashion”<br />

(page 54). Teaser: Don’t be surprised if you see boxy blazers (shoulder pads optional);<br />

Fal l Bucket List<br />


Ahh, fall. The leaves start to change, the weather begins to cool<br />

down, and the holidays are right around the corner. Celebrate this<br />

special season with a few (or all!) of the activities below.<br />

Apple Hill<br />

Rainbow Orchards<br />

Boa Vista<br />


There’s no shortage of spots (or snacks) to choose from in<br />

this must-see region that draws ample visitors every year.<br />

Wondering where to go? Savor a variety of apple donuts (think<br />

walnut-covered, chocolate, and maple glazed) at High Hill<br />

Ranch (highhillranch.com); enjoy a hard cider flight at Boa Vista<br />

(boavista.com); indulge in a seasonal coffee flight and glutenfree<br />

treats at Grandpa’s Cellar (grandpacellar.com); or dig into<br />

a hot apple cider donut alongside fresh apple cider at Rainbow<br />

Orchards (rainboworchards.net). We recommend arriving early<br />

High Hill Ranch<br />

and visiting on a weekday to avoid the traffic<br />

and long lines. Find a full list of options and<br />

things to do (beyond just bake shops!) at<br />

applehill.com.<br />


If you didn’t get enough fall foliage in<br />

Apple Hill, we have a few other ideas. Lake<br />

Natoma provides a relaxing water setting<br />

to take in autumn hues and other pretty<br />

views. East Sacramento—though a bit out of<br />

our suburban bubble—boasts breathtaking<br />

leaves and a plethora of leaf piles lining<br />

jaw-dropping homes. Or, keep it really close<br />

to home by taking a stroll through your<br />

neighborhood sans phone. Stay up to date on<br />

leaf spottings and happenings—or share your<br />

own outdoor fall adventure with others—at<br />

californiafallcolor.com.<br />


You don’t have to leave the house for a<br />

warm autumn drink! Grab the apple cider you<br />

purchased from Apple Hill or the grocery store<br />

(Barsotti Juice Co. sells theirs at lots of local<br />

markets like Whole Foods and Raley’s) along<br />

with a saucepan or crockpot; add in spices like<br />

star anise, cinnamon sticks, ginger, nutmeg,<br />

and cloves, then let things heat up. To really<br />

get warmed up, add some splashes of brandy<br />

or rum. If you find yourself at Camino's Drew<br />

Bean Farms (drewbeanfarms.com), their<br />

Toastee Mosa (mulled hot cider with cinnamon<br />

and spices; topped with champagne and hard<br />

— Day in the Life —<br />

Lisa Hausmann<br />

President of<br />

Mercy Hospital<br />

of Folsom<br />


Unlike many other<br />

industries, hospitals<br />

are a 24-hour-a-day<br />

operation, so trying to<br />

understand what goes<br />

on in a typical day<br />

could be a challenge.<br />

But like any great<br />

medic, Lisa Hausmann,<br />

president of Mercy<br />

Hospital of Folsom,<br />

uses her warm bedside<br />

manner to explain<br />

every procedure.<br />

Please tell us about your story so far.<br />

I began my journey as a skilled nurse, a<br />

path that paved the way for my two-decade<br />

tenure within the health care industry. My<br />

passion for patient care fueled my desire<br />

to take on leadership positions. In January<br />

2020, I assumed the role of chief nurse<br />

executive/chief operating officer, then in<br />

April 2022 I was appointed to my current<br />

role as CEO/president. I’m married to Dan<br />

and am a mom of three: Ireland, 15, Declan,<br />

8, and Easton, 5. We live in Folsom and are<br />

involved in numerous sports clubs; my<br />

husband is often coaching baseball and<br />

basketball, and I love cheering on the kids.<br />

Wow, impressive! So, you’ve<br />

literally risen through the ranks.<br />

Does that help or hinder you in your<br />

current role?<br />

Help, I would say. My nursing background<br />

and experience provide a great “team”<br />

perspective. I have empathy and<br />

understand the unique challenges of<br />

various roles and how the departments<br />

fit together, [which allows me to] dive right<br />

into issues and offer support.<br />

Tell us about a typical working day.<br />

I’m at my desk anywhere between 6-8<br />

a.m. My job has a clinical component and<br />

a business component, and I spend a lot<br />

of time working through areas of focus<br />

like finance, HR, quality of care, patient<br />

safety, and patient experience. We have<br />

goals at both the system and local hospital<br />

level [and are always] striving to make<br />

continuous improvement. Community<br />

is important at Dignity Health, too,<br />

Favorites<br />


Sociology. Their coffee<br />

is amazing, and I<br />

love the energy and<br />

atmosphere.<br />


Mexican cuisine is<br />

my favorite, and I<br />

love the enchiladas,<br />

street corn pizza, and<br />

Cadillac margarita at<br />

which includes working on community<br />

initiatives, attending functions, and serving<br />

underrepresented communities. I’m<br />

also a mentor, helping others with their<br />

professional growth and development. I’m<br />

home anywhere between 5-8 p.m. but am<br />

sometimes on call. If I’m not working, I’m<br />

spending time with my family.<br />

What’s the most enjoyable<br />

part of your day?<br />

The protected time in my calendar—every<br />

day between 9-10 a.m.—where I visit<br />

patients and staff at the hospital. I love<br />

that connection with patients and team<br />

members; the conversations aren’t always<br />

light or positive, but are still valuable.<br />

Tell us more about your<br />

community work.<br />

I'm proud to serve on the Folsom Chamber<br />

of Commerce Board of Directors. Our<br />

hospital takes pride in engaging in various<br />

community volunteer activities. We<br />

sponsor major events like the Folsom<br />

Women’s Conference, Folsom Pro Rodeo,<br />

and Folsom Community Service Day.<br />

Every month our staff visits Powerhouse<br />

Ministries—which helps families struggling<br />

with abuse, addiction, or poverty—to cook<br />

a meal. It’s interesting; we feel as though<br />

we’re going to provide something but come<br />

away feeling as though they’ve provided<br />

us with something. We met a pregnant<br />

woman one month who had questions<br />

about her baby’s upcoming delivery and were<br />

able to connect her with the resources and<br />

people she needed ahead of her due date.<br />

We can’t talk about a hospital<br />

setting without touching on the<br />

pandemic. Please tell us about your<br />

experience in the hospital.<br />

Alongside 9/11, the pandemic is one<br />

of those moments in history I’ll never<br />

forget. Mercy Hospital was one of the first<br />

hospitals in California to accept patients.<br />

I remember the all-night shifts and how<br />

we had to be flexible. The volume of<br />

communication was insane; it was an<br />

evolving situation, as the CDC learned<br />

more and more about the virus. We had<br />

to think outside of our normal way of<br />

doing things and delivering care; we had<br />

to be flexible and resilient. The team<br />

consistently rose to the occasion, and I<br />

couldn’t be prouder of the frontline.<br />

There are an increasing number<br />

of women in senior positions in<br />

medicine, which is great. How do<br />

you help the next generation?<br />

As we see more women and younger<br />

people in executive positions, it’s<br />

important to recognize they bring a<br />

unique perspective and have a unique<br />

voice. I try to empower them to embrace<br />

that voice; I tell them it’s OK to be<br />

different and good to be authentic. Break<br />

the mold!<br />

Brissa & Co. The owner,<br />

Brissa, has poured her<br />

heart and soul into<br />

the restaurant, and<br />

it has an incredibly<br />

authentic feel—from<br />

the aesthetic to the<br />

bakery. I love that<br />

it’s family-friendly<br />

but also makes for a<br />

perfect date night.<br />

HIKE:<br />

There’s a trail at the<br />

end of our cul-de-sac<br />

in Empire Ranch that<br />

is a perfect place for<br />

early morning or sunset<br />

walks with our kiddos.<br />


Nature. There’s<br />

something about<br />

being outdoors that<br />

instantly quiets my<br />

mind and helps me<br />

to be present. I love<br />

beaches and national<br />

parks and tend to<br />

gravitate toward<br />

water destinations<br />

(lakes, ocean, rivers);<br />

however, sitting in the<br />

grass on a sunny day<br />

watching my kids play<br />

sports also makes for a<br />

perfect day.<br />

Spotlight on<br />

Steve<br />

Holler<br />


For El Dorado Hills resident<br />

Steve Holler, life has<br />

come full circle—from<br />

drawing and painting as a child to<br />

a decades-long career in graphic<br />

design and, in recent years, back to<br />

drawing and painting as a fine artist.<br />

As a teenager, Holler’s hero<br />

was painter and illustrator Norman<br />

Rockwell, best known for his covers on<br />

The Saturday Evening Post. “My dad saw that I<br />

was inclined to the arts and was very supportive—but also wanted me<br />

to make a living—so he guided me toward commercial design. Brand<br />

identity really intrigued me, and that’s what I built my career around.”<br />

Holler enjoyed a successful career in the Bay Area, serving on the<br />

graphic design faculty at several colleges, including the Academy of<br />

Art University in San Francisco and the now-closed Art Institute of<br />

California in Sacramento. But since retiring from the industry, he says<br />

it’s been very satisfying to spend his days drawing and painting again.<br />

“As a teacher, I always encouraged students to remember what got<br />

them into art in the first place. If you began by drawing and painting,<br />

then stick with it.” So he’s following his own advice.<br />

Holler, who works primarily in<br />

acrylic on canvas and is a member<br />

of the Folsom Arts Association, often<br />

exhibits at Gallery 10 in Sutter Creek.<br />

This past summer, his paintings were<br />

included in the The Artist’s Mind<br />

exhibit at Harris Center’s Bank of<br />

America Gallery. His work has also<br />

been recognized both nationally<br />

and internationally, and his painting<br />

Mokelumne Span was included in the<br />

2019 edition of the book AcrylicWorks:<br />

The Best of Acrylic Painting.<br />

What appeals to you<br />

about acrylics?<br />

I’ve explored many mediums<br />

throughout the years. As I began<br />

focusing on commercial design,<br />

I limited my involvement with<br />

traditional oil painting and embraced<br />

the tools of graphic design—T-squares,<br />

triangles, pencils, ink and, ultimately,<br />

computers. Later, as I returned to<br />

fine art, I became concerned with<br />

the health ramifications of using<br />

oil paints—linseed oil, turpentine,<br />

and other solvents—worries that<br />

aren’t present in acrylic paints. In<br />

addition to providing a healthier<br />

studio environment, acrylic paints dry<br />

quickly and offer durability and great<br />

versatility in application.<br />

very challenging artistically, so that’s<br />

what I’m experimenting with now.<br />

Do you typically paint on-site<br />

or from photographs?<br />

I’m primarily a studio painter. I go on<br />

explorations that lead to a collection<br />

of photographs used for reference<br />

and compositional studies, but I never<br />

attempt to duplicate them.<br />

Do you have a favorite piece<br />

you’ve created?<br />

Usually, my favorite painting is the one<br />

I’m currently working on. I do have a<br />

number of pieces I’m fond of and have<br />

not sold for various reasons.<br />

You also work in pencil.<br />

What appeals to you about<br />

this medium?<br />

Being able to draw is critical to<br />

success in any representational image<br />

development. An artist must be able to<br />

understand and document the various<br />

subjects they are interpreting. I produce<br />

many sketches prior to developing<br />

and executing a final painting. I<br />

appreciate the spontaneity and line<br />

quality experienced in producing a<br />

well-refined drawing. I find the drawing<br />

process to be as satisfying as rendering<br />

a completed painting.<br />

Above (top to bottom): The Tunnel, The Winter Wood<br />

Stack, Dignity, Filtered Light, El Dorado Color, and<br />

Coast Hwy One<br />

Describe your artistic style.<br />

My work falls on a line between<br />

“realism” and “impressionism,” but<br />

I’ve always been more concerned<br />

about following my point of view in<br />

paintings than assigning a title to their<br />

style; that is, creating art viewers can<br />

recognize and relate to. I really want to<br />

communicate with people, so they can<br />

identify with and bring something of<br />

their own to my paintings.<br />

How do you choose<br />

your subjects?<br />

I look for objects, locations, and<br />

environments that have a universal<br />

appeal. My subjects of interest are<br />

natural forms and environments<br />

that speak to a casual, rural attitude.<br />

I want viewers to experience the<br />

familiar from a new perspective or<br />

understanding. A number of my<br />

recent paintings include water. Painting<br />

water, almost as an animated form, is<br />

I understand you also create<br />

digital drawings? Please share<br />

more.<br />

I’ve just begun to explore the<br />

possibilities in applying traditional<br />

drawing principles to a digitally<br />

rendered image. The iPad Pro and<br />

Apple Pencil have resolved so many<br />

of the problems that used to be there,<br />

such as a delay. I initially shied away<br />

from digital drawing, but now that it’s<br />

so seamless, I find it really intriguing.<br />

What is the best compliment<br />

you can get about your art?<br />

When people look at my work and<br />

say something as simple as, “That<br />

reminds me of an experience.” For<br />

example, a man said one of my<br />

paintings really brought back some<br />

fond childhood memories.<br />

Quiet in<br />

the Nest<br />

Coping When Kids<br />

Fly the Coop<br />


Millions of parents and caregivers across<br />

the country will become empty nesters<br />

this month, as children venture off to<br />

college or pastures new for jobs. Just<br />

like first steps, first words, puberty, and<br />

learning to drive, this is one of life’s<br />

milestones, and it’s highly likely that your<br />

emotions will live up to the occasion.<br />

“Parents [should] allow themselves to feel<br />

the myriad of emotions and know that<br />

they are all normal,” advises Holly Spotts,<br />

clinical psychologist at Full Cup Wellness.<br />

So that ache in your chest, those sleepless<br />

nights worrying about how they’ll cope, and<br />

the spontaneous sobbing while rejoicing at<br />

the reduced grocery bill, are all okay.<br />

Spotts acknowledges that men and<br />

women, mothers and fathers all feel<br />

the impact of empty nest syndrome<br />

but admits that it usually hits mothers<br />

the hardest: “Since women are more<br />

commonly in the role of primary<br />

caretaker, they tend to be more impacted.<br />

The role of ‘mother’ provides a woman<br />

identity and purpose. If a mother depends<br />

heavily on that identity for self-worth,<br />

she will likely suffer a greater loss when<br />

her children no longer need her in the<br />

Just like first steps, first<br />

words, puberty, and learning<br />

to drive, this is one<br />

of life’s milestones, and<br />

it’s highly likely that your<br />

emotions will live up to the<br />

occasion.<br />

The time has come. In those early sleepbroken<br />

nights, it seemed a long way off.<br />

Through grade school, it felt closer and<br />

closer and then in high school it was<br />

looming. It was the goal. They’ve worked<br />

hard. You’ve worked hard, and perhaps<br />

throughout it all, you kept pushing the<br />

thought of them leaving home from your<br />

mind. Everyone told you that time would fly<br />

and now, it’s here.<br />

same ways they once did. Highly involved<br />

and stay-at-home parents will also have<br />

a major transition in identity, as well as<br />

parents who have avoided their problems<br />

to focus on their children.”<br />

Lorna Hyatt, a mom from Folsom, always<br />

wanted to be a mother and has experienced<br />

the empty nest. Tearing up, she recollects<br />

the time when her youngest left home two<br />

years ago. “I grieved. My identity was gone,<br />

and I had to work out who I was again. The<br />

house was so quiet, it was deafening.”<br />

So far, being an empty nester doesn’t<br />

sound great, does it? But as Spotts says,<br />

perhaps we need to reframe this season<br />

of our lives and call it something more<br />

positive like “refeathering” or “renewing.”<br />

Both Spotts and Therese Sorrentino,<br />

LMFT, agree that this can be a positive<br />

experience for parents. As Sorrentino<br />

says, “What hobbies did you have before<br />

years of being a parent, maybe now’s<br />

the time to look after your own health,<br />

both physical and mental. Use the<br />

extra hours to indulge in weekends<br />

away with friends, massages, or simply<br />

taking a moment to paint or sit down<br />

and read a book.<br />

For those who feel as though this<br />

doesn’t relate to you, the empty nest<br />

feeling can start earlier than 18. Children<br />

tend to leave the family “circle” during<br />

the teens years, when they assert their<br />

individuality and prioritize friends over<br />

family. They may spend more time in<br />

their bedroom, and you might see them<br />

less and less. There are also shared<br />

custody situations where parents are<br />

without their kids at certain points of<br />

the week/month/year. Amid all these<br />

experiences, parents describe feeling a<br />

similar sense of loss to when children fly<br />

off for good.<br />

So, what can we do to make their<br />

departure easier and what should<br />

we not do? Hyatt emphasises that all<br />

parents really should try to cherish<br />

every moment. She wishes she hadn’t<br />

willed the difficult stages to finish or her<br />

children to grow up. Parents are told this<br />

all the time but hearing it from someone<br />

who was so bereft when her kids left, was<br />

powerful. On the flip side, she described<br />

how she reframed her situation to think<br />

about the positives: She raised three<br />

children into adults capable of living<br />

alone. “I trained them,” she asserts<br />

proudly. She also says that it’s nice to<br />

return to a clean house after work—<br />

just as she left it—and leftovers in the<br />

fridge are for her!<br />

Sorrentino says when children<br />

leave home is often when a parents’<br />

relationship can fall apart. Without<br />

the focus of children, they realize<br />

they’ve lost their connection. She<br />

encourages parents to see themselves<br />

as the core of the family that cannot<br />

be neglected—regular date nights are<br />

a must, no matter how difficult they<br />

might be to arrange. Perhaps you can<br />

have an agreement with another couple<br />

to babysit each other’s kids, and switch<br />

off the following week or month. This<br />

simple investment will go a long way in<br />

preventing estrangement and further<br />

distress when the youngest child leaves<br />

the home.<br />

And, if you feel like calling your<br />

child regularly to check-in and see what<br />

they’re up to once they’ve left home,<br />

think again, says Spotts. “Our kids need<br />

space to individuate, experience trial<br />

and error, and become the people<br />

they’re meant to be. If we smother them,<br />

they simply won’t be able to grow. Also,<br />

it shouldn’t be up to our kids to soothe<br />

our weary hearts. They can’t soar if<br />

we’re holding them back. As parents,<br />

we need to find others to support our<br />

feelings during this time, such as a<br />

friend, family member, or therapist.”<br />

When you’re standing on the<br />

threshold of the family home waving<br />

goodbye to your offspring, celebrate<br />

your child and all they’ve achieved. Be<br />

proud of your parenting. Feel all the<br />

feels but consider that you, too, are on<br />

the threshold of a new chapter. This is<br />

your time.<br />

How to<br />

Get Your<br />

Vehicle<br />

Unstuck<br />

Last year, on a trip to the<br />

Valley of Fire State Park, I<br />

(embarrassingly and very<br />

mysteriously) managed<br />

to get my car completely<br />

stuck, high centered, and<br />

buried in soft sand. Here<br />

are a few things to know<br />

should this ever happen<br />

to you.<br />

➊<br />

Stop when you first get stuck<br />

(don’t spin your wheels).<br />

Don’t get high centered; this<br />

is when you dig yourself so<br />

deep your car is supported<br />

(from the chassis) by the dirt<br />

you’ve dug yourself into. Stop<br />

spinning your wheels before<br />

you get here.<br />

➋<br />

Build traction. Get out<br />

and identify which wheels<br />

are spinning. Find rocks,<br />

branches, anything you can<br />

use to build traction. If you<br />

have traction pads, now’s the<br />

time to use them. You may<br />

need to dig a path for the<br />

tires.<br />

➌<br />

If you’re with someone,<br />

have them push the car<br />

forward while you wiggle<br />

the wheel side to side to<br />

gain traction. Press the gas<br />

gently. Again, stop if your<br />

wheels start to spin.<br />

➍<br />

If you have a way of filling the<br />

holes your wheels are in, jack<br />

up your car and fill the holes,<br />

build traction, and drive off.<br />

➎<br />

You can release about 15<br />

PSI (max) from your tires to<br />

increase the surface area of<br />

the tire and help gain traction.<br />


THAN THIS.<br />

➏<br />

Use a winch if you have one.<br />

➐<br />

Call the park/forest/highway<br />

patrol services if nothing else<br />

works.<br />

Just in case, the number for<br />

the USDA Forest Service Tahoe<br />

National Forest Supervisors Office<br />

is 530-265-4531.<br />

Dr. Bogard has a long history in the health<br />

field. From an RN to a nurse anesthetist<br />

to an anesthesiologist, she spent almost<br />

40 years in the operating room. She was<br />

exposed to critical care, trauma, obstetrics, lots of on<br />

call hours and sleepless nights. As she entered her 50's<br />

she found her own health starting to decline and sought<br />

out a healthy aging physician. After experiencing the<br />

benefits she sought out the fellowship of regenerative<br />

and healthy aging through the American Academy of<br />

Anti-Aging Medicine.<br />

She opened an office in 2014 and continues to grow<br />

and expand her knowledge into this evolving field of<br />

medicine. Rather than prescribing medications and<br />

bandaging diseases she looks for the "root causes" and<br />

integrates each system in the body together. She also<br />

looks at environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors<br />

which result in "dis-ease". Her continued and expanding<br />

practice utilizes bioidentical hormone replacement,<br />

thyroid and adrenal optimization, GI healing, testing for<br />

heavy metals and IV nutrition and chelation, advanced<br />

lipid testing, and advanced blood sugar testing.<br />

What to Wear This Season<br />


A new season brings new style! We asked local boutiques what they’re “falling”<br />

for this autumn. Whether you’re ready to pack those sundresses away<br />

completely or add small touches to your existing closet, here are a few trend<br />

favorites.<br />

Vintage Vogue<br />

Submitted by Darcy Quinn & Danielle Harper, Thrifted. on Main, 460 Main<br />

Street, Placerville, 530-497-5945, thriftedonmain.com<br />

“Ladies can choose a cozy flannel overshirt to exude rustic charm and layer it over a<br />

silky cami for a feminine touch. The contrast between the softness of the cami and the<br />

ruggedness of the overshirt creates a stylish juxtaposition.”<br />

“Vintage denim maxi skirts are a must-have this season. Layer a lace slip underneath<br />

to add a delicate detail. Complete the outfit with a tailored jacket for a touch of<br />

sophistication.”<br />

“For men, vintage track jackets layered over a graphic tee paired with straight-leg Dickiesstyle<br />

pants, corduroy, or vintage denim offers a casual, everyday look. To elevate the<br />

style, interchange a knit sweater vest and/or a trench-style jacket to stay with the layering<br />

vibe. Top it off with a baseball cap, a loose tie, or your favorite<br />

accessories— carefully curated classic elements and vintage pieces<br />

create a one-of-a-kind, retro-inspired outfit.”<br />

Blue Jean Baby<br />

Submitted by Tegan<br />

Lee, Lees' Boutique, 4110<br />

Datsun Court, Shingle<br />

Springs, 530-677-4891,<br />

leesboutique.net<br />

“I love all things denim;<br />

luckily, there some fun<br />

denim trends this season—<br />

from colored denim and<br />

wide leg denim to cargo<br />

jeans, jumpsuits, overalls,<br />

and so much more! And<br />

with the Barbie movie [that<br />

came out] this summer,<br />

we'll still be seeing lots of<br />

pink!”<br />

Red Hot<br />

Submitted by Mia Khera, On Point Boutique,<br />

260 Palladio Parkway, Suite 1007, Folsom, 916-<br />

805-9941, onpointboutique.store<br />

“You’ll be seeing hues of red everywhere, as it takes<br />

over as ‘the’ color of fall and winter this year. I love this<br />

trend since red is such a great color that amplifies any<br />

look. Pick one item to wear (red shoes, a red handbag,<br />

or a red blazer) or make a statement by wearing a<br />

monochromatic look.”<br />

“Modern ’80s fashion is resurfacing this fall with<br />

oversized boxy looks (think shoulder pads) and bold,<br />

geometric patterns. For a fun and edgy look that’ll<br />

make you feel polished and powerful, add a boxy<br />

blazer to your outfit; if it has shoulder pads, more<br />

power to you.”<br />


For bold, bright red lips that’ll<br />

make you feel (almost!) famous<br />

this fall, the long-lasting,<br />

iconic offerings from Bésame<br />

Cosmetics can’t be beat. Their<br />

“Bésame Red 1920” shade with<br />

cool undertones looks fab on<br />

all skin tones and makes a serious<br />

statement while also staying put. $28,<br />

ASK THE<br />

EXPERT<br />

by BELLA NOLEN<br />




A: Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)<br />

is the healthiest, highest-grade<br />

olive oil available. During harvest<br />

season, the olives are picked<br />

and, within hours, delivered to<br />

the mill for pressing. The oil is<br />

extracted from the olives using<br />

natural methods with no heat or<br />

solvents. This freshly pressed<br />

oil smells and tastes amazing:<br />

creamy yet bold. In November<br />

and December, you can find it<br />

as “olio nuovo.” During the rest<br />

of the year, look for California<br />

extra virgin olive oil with the<br />

most recent year’s harvest date.<br />

Regardless of your diet, it’s easy<br />

to incorporate this healthy fat<br />

into meals; use it in your morning<br />

eggs, a frittata, or drizzled on<br />

toast; toss potatoes or vegetables<br />

with it, along with herbs, and<br />

then roast or sauté them; create<br />

delicious vinaigrettes by blending<br />

EVOO with rich balsamic;<br />

enhance marinades with it [or]<br />

use a delicate, buttery olive oil<br />

for healthier and incredibly moist<br />

baked goods.<br />

Styling a home is<br />

a labor-intensive<br />

undertaking, requiring<br />

lots of patience and<br />

decision-making. If you<br />

wish you could revamp<br />

your residence with<br />

the ease of a magic<br />

wand, you’re not alone.<br />

We don’t have a fairy<br />

godmother to make all<br />

your home makeover<br />

dreams come true, but<br />

we do have the next<br />

best thing: three local<br />

designers sharing their<br />

style know-how and<br />

interior décor wisdom<br />

with us.<br />

Eye for Design<br />




How would you describe<br />

your design style?<br />

I have developed four distinct styles that<br />

align with my personal aesthetic and<br />

the preferences of the clients I work<br />

with: earthy organic, modern traditional,<br />

European, and English countryside. Across<br />

these four styles, my love for neutral tones<br />

provides a versatile backdrop, patterns<br />

inject personality and visual interest, and<br />

natural materials add warmth, texture, and<br />

a connection to nature.<br />

What are your top three design tips?<br />

1. With remodeling or new home<br />

construction projects, initiate the design<br />

process as early as possible. Completing<br />

a well-thought-out design plan ahead of<br />

time is preferable (as opposed to rushing<br />

and potentially causing delays later). By<br />

involving an interior designer at this<br />

stage, they can envision and strategize<br />

the placement of specific furniture, offer<br />

architectural design suggestions, and<br />

provide valuable feedback that optimizes<br />

both aesthetics and functionality.<br />

2. Make sure to use a cohesive color<br />

palette and design elements. Create<br />

mood boards, flat lays, and sample paint<br />

colors to truly visualize all the elements<br />

@thecuratedspaces<br />

@skylinebuilddesign<br />

@skylinebuildanddesign<br />

you plan to incorporate. Place the<br />

mood board and flat lay in the room<br />

and live with it for a while.<br />

3. Forgo the furniture set! As tempting<br />

as it is to head to [a big-box store]<br />

and order a dining set, stick to<br />

selecting individual pieces that<br />

complement each other. The result<br />

is a thoughtfully curated aesthetic<br />

that enables the blending of high-end<br />

investments with budget-friendly<br />

discoveries, resulting in a wellbalanced,<br />

inviting design.<br />

Biggest mistake people<br />

make when decorating?<br />

If your rug isn’t substantial enough<br />

for your space, it will appear as if it’s<br />

floating in the room; therefore, it’s<br />

crucial to find one that’s the right size<br />

for your space. Rugs not only ground the<br />

furniture but can transform a room and<br />

create a point of interest. A golden rule<br />

is to make sure the front two legs of the<br />

main furniture pieces are on the rug.<br />

Most underrated tip, trick, or detail<br />

when decorating a home?<br />

The power of lighting! Proper lighting<br />

can transform a room, making it appear<br />

larger, cozier, or more inviting. It can<br />

highlight architectural features, artwork,<br />

and focal points, creating a sense of<br />

depth and visual interest.<br />

How would you describe<br />

your design style?<br />

Flexible. I can make any style<br />

work, as long as it's right for the<br />

style of architecture. My goal is<br />

to find what my client's style is<br />

and then work from there. I like<br />

change, so my personal style<br />

varies. I think that is why I am<br />

a designer, so I can make every<br />

project unique and not be pinned<br />

to any one particular "style."<br />

What are your top three<br />

design tips?<br />

1. Start with your inspiration. It<br />

could be a color, a flower, a<br />

light fixture, or a rug. I found<br />

my latest inspiration in a<br />

rosemary bush!<br />

2. Pull pictures together and<br />

put them all in one place<br />

like a mood board, then<br />

hone it down by eliminating<br />

the things that don't<br />

work together. If you love<br />

something but it doesn't work<br />

with everything else, use it<br />

in another room or not at all.<br />

It's like picking out clothes to<br />

wear; there are some things<br />

in your closet that you would<br />

never wear together, right?<br />

3. Trust yourself! I think a lot of people have<br />

great taste and could do their own designs.<br />

Designers just trust that what they’re<br />

choosing for you is going to look great. But if<br />

you just can't do it, hire a designer!<br />

Biggest mistake people<br />

make when decorating?<br />

They don’t look at the whole picture and try to<br />

incorporate everything they like in one space;<br />

then, when it’s done, they wonder why it doesn't<br />

flow. Too many colors and too many wow factors<br />

in one space can look messy and not thought out.<br />

Most underrated tip, trick, or detail when<br />

decorating a home?<br />

Do what you like—not what is trendy. Your<br />

friends or your designer aren’t going to live<br />

in your home. It’s for you and your family, not<br />

anyone else, so YOU need to love it!<br />

How<br />

would you<br />

describe<br />

your<br />

design<br />

style?<br />

I don't have<br />

a specific<br />

style,<br />

because<br />

it's tailored<br />

to each<br />

individual<br />

client rather<br />

than reflecting my own preferences.<br />

However, when it came to renovating<br />

my own home, I leaned toward<br />

California casual and incorporated<br />

elements of traditional design to create<br />

a warm, cozy atmosphere.<br />

What are your top three<br />

design tips?<br />

●1. Don’t succumb to trends; think<br />

about what you like as a person. If<br />

you love it today, you'll love it in 20<br />

years.<br />

2. Don’t choose paint colors first.<br />

Instead, put together something<br />

you love, such as an area rug or a<br />

sofa, and then choose your colors.<br />

3. In styling your home, less is more.<br />

Allow it to feel cozy and comfy as<br />

opposed to cluttered. Too much<br />

stuff feels crowded. If you bring<br />

something in, two things need to go.<br />

Biggest mistake people make<br />

when decorating?<br />

Over-decorating! Make sure you have a<br />

focal point, not focal points, so the eye<br />

has time to rest. Be intentional.<br />

Most underrated tip, trick, or<br />

detail when decorating a home?<br />

When trying to come up with a<br />

color palette, think about what looks<br />

beautiful on you, what you wear, and<br />

what makes you look and feel vibrant—<br />

start there!<br />

25<br />

Must-Try<br />

Italian Eats<br />


Papa Gianni's Ristorante<br />

Mangia means “eat,” but in<br />

everyday Italian life, it’s not<br />

used as a command—it’s an<br />

invitation. It’s not describing<br />

the act of eating, but rather<br />

the emotion, the feeling of<br />

eating. Eat, enjoy, share,<br />

love: Mangia!<br />

Italian food at its best is communal.<br />

It’s community. It’s family. And it’s<br />

the cuisine of simplicity—born of<br />

necessity and practicality, and through<br />

centuries of tradition elevated into<br />

something beautiful. Here in our area,<br />

we’re blessed with an impressive<br />

number of authentic, deeply Italian<br />

restaurants, serving up classics<br />

like manicotti, ravioli, and arancini;<br />

specialties like traditional Roman<br />

alfredo and Milanese risotto; and<br />

creative plates like wild boar ragu and<br />

chicken piccata pizza. Your taste buds<br />

are the only passport you’ll need for<br />

this vacation. Allow us to take you<br />

on a tour to some of our favorites; if<br />

you’re not already a fan of these local<br />

legends, you soon will be.<br />

Amore Mio<br />

Italian Bistro<br />

Placerville’s Amore Mio Italian Bistro<br />

sources their ingredients direct from Italy,<br />

and their specialty is authentic Roman<br />

fare. For uniquely traditional appetizers,<br />

try the hugely popular Carcio Fritti<br />

Al Formaggio: delicious, deep-fried<br />

artichokes filled with mascarpone and<br />

goat cheese; or the Fiori Di Zucchina<br />

Fritti: crispy zucchini blossoms filled<br />

with mozzarella cheese. Simple, elegant,<br />

and—dare we say—beautiful, these<br />

appetizers get an A+ in my book. 451 Main<br />

amoremioitalianbistro.com<br />

Bene Ristorante Italiano (also known<br />

as Pizza Bene) brings the taste of Naples<br />

to Placerville. If you’re in the mood for<br />

something creatively unique with one foot<br />

still firmly in the world of tradition, try<br />

the Chicken Piccata Pizza: chicken<br />

breast, capers, garlic, mozzarella, fresh<br />

squeezed lemon, and extra virgin olive<br />

oil. The secret to their classic Neapolitan<br />

pizza is Antico Molino Caputo flour,<br />

which yields that soft and flavorful crust.<br />

Spettacolare! 423 Main Street, Placerville, 530-<br />

Papa Gianni's Ristorante has been<br />

serving authentic Southern Italian cuisine<br />

to the Cameron Park community (and<br />

beyond) for over 30 years. Their Spaghetti<br />

Marinara & Meatballs is a true<br />

crowd-pleaser: flavor-packed, house-made<br />

meatballs swimming in slow-simmered<br />

marinara over a generous portion of<br />

noodles is molto bene! If you manage to save<br />

room for dessert, the cannoli—featuring<br />

crunchy Italian pastry (made in-house) filled<br />

with creamy ricotta, rum, and chocolate—<br />

delivers on taste, authenticity and, best<br />

of all, size; these babies are BIG. 3450<br />

The Place (locations in Placerville and<br />

Roseville) is an ode to Italian family and<br />

fresh, original cuisine. Try something<br />

different for your appetizer: Piedmontese<br />

Bagna Cauda “Hot Bath.” (Please<br />

remain clothed—the bath is for the bread,<br />

folks.) This warming concoction of confit<br />

garlic, extra virgin olive oil, white wine,<br />

and lemon (anchovies are available on<br />

request but highly recommended) is served<br />

with warmed rosemary Italian flatbread<br />

for dipping and sublime enjoyment.<br />

New York-style Italian-American<br />

pizza; and, in the opinion of<br />

this writer, there’s nothing more<br />

New York (and nothing more<br />

Italian-American) than a pizza<br />

Annual Report Highlights Commitment to Care


Marshall Expands to<br />

Better Care for You<br />


Marshall Medical Center is under<br />

contract to purchase a building in El<br />

Dorado Hills, at 4201 Town Center<br />

Boulevard, the former Blue Shield<br />

building, located across Latrobe<br />

Boulevard from the El Dorado Hills<br />

Town Center.<br />

“We are thrilled to announce<br />

Marshall’s expansion in El Dorado<br />

Hills, as we seek to meet the current<br />

and future needs of this vibrant<br />

and growing community,” says Siri<br />

Nelson, Marshall’s President. “This<br />

project will be something truly special,<br />

strategically growing our longstanding<br />

presence in the area and underscoring<br />

our commitment to the health and<br />

well-being of its residents.”<br />

Since 2005, Marshall has leased clinic<br />

space in a nearby El Dorado Hills<br />

business park, but the new Town<br />

Center location is an opportunity<br />

to have an even greater presence in<br />

the community. The 49,000 squarefoot,<br />

two-story building is one of<br />

four on the campus and the one<br />

closest to the freeway, giving Marshall<br />

excellent visibility on the Highway 50<br />

corridor and our county border. Its<br />

size and proximity to the heart of the<br />

community will allow for a robust,<br />

state-of-the art clinic and increased<br />

convenience for patients.<br />

Planning and design work are<br />

currently under way, with the<br />

intention of starting the construction<br />

process immediately after the close of<br />

escrow. The targeted opening of the<br />

building is Winter 2024-2025. Services<br />

currently housed in the existing El<br />

Dorado Hills clinic (including family<br />

medicine, orthopedics & sports<br />

medicine, physical therapy, and<br />

laboratory services) will move to the<br />

new location upon completion. The<br />

El Dorado Hills Healthcare Advisory<br />

Committee, comprised of leaders<br />

from the area, is assisting hospital<br />

administration by providing input<br />

on the services to be offered and the<br />

delivery of care at the new location.<br />

In May of this year, the Marshall<br />

Foundation for Community Health’s<br />

Board of Directors approved a $1<br />

million grant to support the expansion<br />

project with plans for a fundraising<br />

campaign to follow at a later date.<br />

“Our foundation’s mission is to be<br />

a catalyst for a healthy community,<br />

“ says Christa Campbell, Chair of<br />

Marshall Foundation for Community<br />

Health’s Board of Directors. “A project<br />

of this scale will advance that mission<br />

and facilitate the well-being of<br />

residents of El Dorado Hills and the<br />

surrounding communities. As a board,<br />

and as individuals, it was our privilege<br />

to step forward to help make this<br />

expansion a reality.”<br />

Don’t forget to schedule<br />

these appointments<br />

Now is as good a time as any to get these<br />

appointments on your calendar.<br />

As summer transitions into fall, many people find<br />

that they return to more regular routines. Kids are<br />

back in school, vacations are completed and life<br />

starts to settle down. That is until the busyness<br />

of the winter holidays kicks into high gear. This<br />

in-between time is the perfect time to catch up<br />

on important things you need to do, especially<br />

when it comes to your health.<br />

If you haven’t had time to make your health a<br />

priority lately, now is the time to do so. Not only is<br />

it a good opportunity to get back into a routine of<br />

eating healthy, exercising regularly and sleeping<br />

enough, but it’s also the ideal time to catch up on<br />

any medical appointments you may have put off.<br />

Here are some appointments to get on your<br />

calendar if you’re overdo for a visit:<br />

Annual physical. Even if you’re feeling good, this<br />

yearly appointment is a good opportunity to keep<br />

track of vital information, such as weight, blood<br />

pressure and other important numbers. It’s also<br />

a chance for you to talk with your doctor about<br />

anything that concerns you, ask any questions<br />

you may have and discuss when you should have<br />

recommended screenings and routine bloodwork.<br />

Your primary care physician can also keep you up<br />

to date on recommended vaccinations.<br />

Cancer screenings. Depending on your age,<br />

gender, family history and health status, it<br />

may be time for you to have important cancer<br />

screenings done.<br />

• It is recommended that colorectal cancer<br />

screenings begin at age 45 if you are at<br />

average risk.<br />

• Women should talk to their doctor<br />

starting at age 40 to decide when to<br />

begin mammogram screenings and how<br />

often to get them.<br />

• Women should also ask how often they<br />

need PAP/HPV screenings to protect<br />

against cervical cancer, depending on<br />

their age.<br />

• Men should discuss the benefits and risks<br />

of screening for prostate cancer.<br />

• Getting a full-body check by a<br />

dermatologist to check for skin cancer is<br />

recommended annually, especially if you<br />

are fair-skinned or have a family history of<br />

skin cancer.<br />

• If you are a long-time current or former<br />

smoker, you should ask whether screening<br />

for lung cancer with a low-dose CT scan is<br />

recommended.<br />

Other exams. Have you had your eyes<br />

checked recently? How about your hearing?<br />

Are you going for routine cleanings to keep<br />

your teeth and gums healthy? Should you<br />

check your bone density?<br />

• Eye exams are recommended every 1<br />

to 5 years, depending on your age and<br />

whether you have any vision problems<br />

or medical issues.<br />

• It’s recommended that you have your<br />

hearing checked every 3 to 5 years until<br />

age 40 and then more often after that<br />

or if you have any signs of hearing loss<br />

(this is often done during your annual<br />

physical so you may not need to make a<br />

separate appointment).<br />

• It is suggested that you visit a dentist<br />

every six months to get a professional<br />

cleaning. This helps prevent cavities and<br />

can keep your gums healthier.<br />

• If you are a woman aged 65 or older or<br />

are at an increased risk for osteoporosis,<br />

talk to your doctor about whether you<br />

should have a bone density scan.<br />

Cancer Care,<br />

Close to Home<br />

“The doctor didn’t<br />

have to say a<br />

thing. I knew as<br />

soon as she walked<br />

in the room after<br />

my ultrasound.”<br />

In a moment, Joanne knew she was<br />

facing cancer for a second time.<br />

A great grandmother, Joanne was first<br />

diagnosed with early-stage breast<br />

cancer in 2013 while living in Santa<br />

Cruz, California. She opted for a<br />

double mastectomy and reconstructive<br />

surgery and endured a regular twohour<br />

drive for treatment at Palo Alto’s<br />

Stanford Medical Center. In time,<br />

Joanne recovered and moved back to<br />

the foothills to be closer to family.<br />

Then, in February of <strong>2023</strong>, just two<br />

months after celebrating her 45th<br />

anniversary with Larry, her high school<br />

sweetheart, Joanne learned she had<br />

metastatic cancer in her liver. Larry,<br />

who owns three medical clinics and<br />

was by Joanne’s side every step of the<br />

way during her original cancer journey,<br />

quickly began his research. Having lived<br />

in the area again for the past eight years,<br />

the couple had been fortunate not to<br />

need significant care, but Larry quickly<br />

focused on the nearby Marshall Cancer<br />

Center, a UC Davis Health Affiliate.<br />

Under the affiliation, Marshall’s<br />

oncologists work directly with the<br />

renowned UC Davis Comprehensive<br />

Cancer Center team to design<br />

leading-edge diagnostic and<br />

treatment plans. With this relationship,<br />

the latest cancer clinical trials – often<br />

only available through large academic<br />

research centers – are available to<br />

Marshall’s patients.<br />

The couple met with Marshall’s Rashmi<br />

Ramasubbaiah, MD and on their<br />

second visit, learned of an important<br />

clinical trial. Because of her history,<br />

Joanne was eligible to participate in trial<br />

S1703 - Randomized Non-Inferiority Trial<br />

Comparing Overall Survival of Patients<br />

Monitored with Serum Tumor Marker<br />

Directed Disease Monitoring versus<br />

Usual Care in Patients with Metastatic<br />

Hormone Receptor Positive HER-2<br />

Negative Breast Cancer.<br />

S1703, the first of five clinical trials<br />

now available at Marshall, tests a new<br />

approach for monitoring breast cancer<br />

during treatment using blood tests<br />

called serum tumor marker (STM) tests.<br />

STM measures the amount of tumor<br />

markers released into the blood by<br />

cancer and other cells. This information<br />

can show doctors if the cancer is<br />

responding to treatment. Researchers<br />

are comparing this monitoring approach<br />

to traditional monitoring using imaging<br />

scans which can be expensive and<br />

make many patients anxious. Using<br />

blood tests instead of scans might<br />

improve the quality of life for some<br />

patients and lower costs.<br />

Joanne began treatment immediately.<br />

Following her third round of<br />

chemotherapy, when Dr. Ramasubbaiah<br />

was hoping to see a 10-12% reduction in<br />

Joanne’s cancer markers, she received<br />

the extraordinary news that they had<br />

dropped by more than 53%. Today,<br />

Joanne is receiving regular hormonal<br />

therapy and is on a positive path,<br />

grateful to receive world-class care so<br />

close to home.<br />

“When I had my first journey with<br />

cancer, it would take two hours to drive<br />

to my appointments and two hours<br />

back,” Joanne says. “Now, we’re just ten<br />

minutes from Marshall’s Cancer Center.<br />

It is much less stressful not to spend the<br />

time on the freeway and it eliminates the<br />

hours in the car anticipating treatment,<br />

bloodwork and the mental stress of<br />

wondering ‘what’s next?’”<br />

“The care has been excellent,” adds<br />

Larry. “The people, the facility, the work<br />

that they do … they make you feel like a<br />

person, not a ‘cancer patient’. The more<br />

we learn through the trials, hopefully<br />

there will be fewer people that have to<br />

go through these journeys.”<br />

Marshall Trains the Next<br />

Generation of Providers<br />

This summer, Marshall Medical Center<br />

began serving as a clinical rotation<br />

site for physician assistant students<br />

from Stockton’s University of the<br />

Pacific. The skills and experience the<br />

students obtain through working with<br />

Marshall’s medical staff will provide<br />

the foundation for a career of highquality,<br />

compassionate service. Our<br />

clinical preceptors facilitate a handson<br />

experience in patient assessment<br />

and care with gradual assumption<br />

of increasing responsibility by the<br />

students. Supervised students take<br />

an active role in obtaining medical<br />

histories, performing physical<br />

examinations, interpreting diagnostic<br />

tests, making diagnoses, developing<br />

treatment plans, and providing<br />

patient education.<br />

As professionals engaged in lifelong<br />

learning, Marshall’s medical staff<br />

enjoy teaching, and our preceptors<br />

are rewarded with both the<br />

assistance of their students as well<br />

as the satisfaction of participating<br />

in an unbroken chain of education<br />

traditions that stem back millennia<br />

to the origins of medicine in ancient<br />

Egypt, China, India, and Greece.<br />

Because precepting is based on upto-date,<br />

evidence-based medicine,<br />

Marshall’s participation as a<br />

university clinical site helps sustain<br />

the high standards of care that are<br />

central to our mission and culture.<br />


Tournament<br />

Supports<br />

Ambulance Portico<br />

Project<br />

The 40th Annual Bob West Drive for Marshall Golf<br />

Tournament took place on June 23rd with golfers<br />

enjoying a day of play under sunny, but cool, skies<br />

at the Cold Springs Golf and Country Club. Chaired<br />

by West’s son-in-law, Bob Gillett, the tournament<br />

raised approximately $183,000 to benefit the Marshall<br />

Foundation for Community Health.<br />

Proceeds from this year’s sold-out tournament will<br />

support health programs at Marshall Medical Center,<br />

health related community needs, and a portion of the<br />

proceeds will help underwrite the construction cost<br />

for an ambulance portico outside Marshall Medical<br />

Center’s emergency department. The new portico will<br />

protect patients, first responders, and clinicians from<br />

the elements. “Patients arrive by ambulance in all<br />

kinds of weather, from rain and snow to extreme heat.<br />

The new portico will offer shelter from the elements,<br />

providing a better experience for patients and those<br />

who care for them,” says Mindy Danovaro, Executive<br />

Director, Marshall Foundation for Community Health.<br />

Construction on the new portico is estimated to cost<br />

nearly $1 million.<br />

How to Spot a Stroke<br />

If you notice these signs, here’s what<br />

you need to do and why you need to<br />

act quickly.<br />

When someone has a stroke, recovery<br />

can be greatly impacted by how<br />

quickly medical treatment is received.<br />

That’s why it’s important to know<br />

what the symptoms of stroke look like<br />

so you can better determine when<br />

someone needs help.<br />

If a person’s stroke is due to an<br />

obstruction in a vessel supplying<br />

blood to the brain (an ischemic<br />

stroke), a clot-busting drug (tPA) may<br />

improve the chances of recovery if<br />

administered quickly enough. Studies<br />

show when tPA is given within 1½<br />

hours, up to 20% of patients show<br />

significant improvement 90 days later;<br />

if within 3 hours, about 10% show<br />

improvement.<br />

Recent studies have also shown that<br />

after being evaluated at the hospital,<br />

some patients may benefit from being<br />

transferred to specialized stroke<br />

centers for clot retrieval procedures<br />

that can increase the chances of<br />

symptom improvement. Time is<br />

also critical in performing these<br />

procedures as soon as possible.<br />

Time is of the essence when it comes<br />

to treating a stroke. That’s why it’s<br />

best to remember the words BE FAST<br />

when trying to determine if someone<br />

is having a stroke. This acronym helps<br />

you identify stroke warning signs:<br />

• B = Balance: Is the person suddenly<br />

having trouble with balance or<br />

coordination?<br />

• E = Eyes: Is the person experiencing<br />

suddenly blurred or double vision<br />

or a sudden loss of vision in one or<br />

both eyes without pain?<br />

• F = Facial drooping: Ask the person<br />

to smile. Is one side of the face<br />

drooping or hard to move?<br />

• A = Arm weakness: Ask the person<br />

to raise both arms. Does one arm<br />

drift down?<br />

• S = Speech difficulties: Ask the<br />

person to repeat a simple phrase. Do<br />

you notice slurred speech or trouble<br />

forming words?<br />

• T = Time: Time lost is brain lost.<br />

If you notice any of the above<br />

symptoms, call 911 right away.<br />

Other symptoms of stroke include<br />

a sudden severe headache with no<br />

known cause, sudden numbness on<br />

one side of the body, trouble walking,<br />

dizziness, and arm or leg weakness.<br />

If something seems “off” with<br />

someone and you suspect it’s due to<br />

a stroke, call 911 immediately. The<br />

sooner a person having a stroke gets<br />

to a hospital, the better the odds of<br />

recovery. The single most important<br />

factor in the successful treatment of<br />

stroke is getting treatment as quickly<br />

as possible.<br />

If you suspect a stroke, always call 911.<br />

Remember, it’s important to BE FAST.<br />

Daniello’s<br />

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

U<br />

nidentifiable, dimly lit, and worthy of every effort it takes to find<br />

it, there is a charismatic charm to what Daniello’s has done for<br />

the Roseville community. Modeled after a true speakeasy, the era-style<br />

establishment truly transports you to a different time.<br />

From the storefront façade echoing memories of tasty times from the<br />

past, to the first sip of your favorite libation, you’ll feel as though you’re living<br />

vicariously through the ages and stepping into a clandestine prohibition<br />

establishment.<br />

For those willing to do the work, prepare to imbibe in style and engage<br />

your taste buds in an experience that will easily hit the top of your list.<br />

I would do you a disservice by describing step-by-step how to enter<br />

Daniello’s. What I will say is this: Get the password on their website—and<br />

HEADS-UP: Every Wednesday they host a bourbon<br />

tasting (reservations required); their VIP program<br />

grants access to all whiskey tastings and the private<br />

bar; reservations required for the fixed menu (served<br />

in the dining room), but the lounge is open to walk-ins<br />

with its own menu; proper dress is recommended (no<br />

ripped jeans, hoodies, etc.); no cell phones and flash<br />

photography; dining room can be booked for private<br />

events; menu items change seasonally.<br />

Raindrop Salad<br />

Crème Brûlée<br />

go. Walk on the opposite side of the street to<br />

find the sign and enjoy the quaintly confusing<br />

experience of walking through the door and<br />

giving the store clerk the password.<br />

Though the lounge is open to walk-ins, for<br />

those wanting to experience the full menu,<br />

make a reservation in advance. Also worth<br />

noting: The dining room is closed Wednesdays<br />

for whiskey tastings (the day we went); luckily,<br />

we snuck a spot at the bar.<br />

The ambiance of the lounge can best be<br />

described as a vintage, underground ’20s<br />

jazz bar with an open, modern kitchen. The<br />

wallpaper, lion head emblems, wood, brass,<br />

and brick—combined with the jazzy, trip-hop<br />

music—create a definite vibe few places can<br />

achieve. Essentially, I loved everything about it.<br />

The drink menu was full of modern and<br />

classic cocktails that all sounded (and looked)<br />

delicious, but we kept it simple with a round<br />

of Old Fashioneds. While sipping the wellmade,<br />

boozy beverages, we perused<br />

the simple yet highly sophisticated<br />

lounge menu—and ordered a halfdozen<br />

Shikoku Oysters to start.<br />

Served with a wasabi mignonette<br />

and lemon, we immediately<br />

regretted only ordering six. Trust<br />

me: Your inner troglodyte will<br />

beckon you to drink the mignonette.<br />

Next, the Tomahawk Ribeye—<br />

something that stands as<br />

the best steak I’ve ever<br />

had—was wheeled out by<br />

the sous-chef, torch in<br />

hand, where a hefty serving<br />

of butter was incinerated<br />

onto the surface of the<br />

perfectly cooked slice of<br />

heaven. No need to tell them<br />

how you want this delicacy<br />

prepared; it’s only served<br />

one way: medium rare.<br />

When asked about this, Nick<br />

(my highly knowledgeable<br />

bartender), replied: “A great<br />

chef once said, ‘because<br />

there is no need to kill it<br />

twice.’” Beware, all steaks<br />

you eat henceforth may fall<br />

short of what this does to<br />

your palate.<br />

We split the steak with<br />

a side of Pimento Cheese<br />

Grits—which added just<br />

a tad more decadence to<br />

the meal—and finished off<br />

with Crème Brûlée and a sampling<br />

of spirits being served at the private<br />

whiskey tasting.<br />

Daniello’s piqued my interest<br />

more than most restaurants; and,<br />

after having been, I think few will<br />

match up. The style, atmosphere,<br />

and taste are worth the price tag. If<br />

you can afford even a once-a-year<br />

splurge on an incredible dinner,<br />

do yourself a favor and take a<br />

special someone. If not,<br />

just go for a drink<br />

and slip into the<br />

microcosm where<br />

underground<br />

vintage and modern<br />

collide. Come well<br />

dressed and ready to<br />

be impressed.<br />

perfect for enjoying any of their impeccably brewed craft beers (everything from a Tangerine<br />

Kölsch and Blood Orange Gose to a Vanilla Porter), plus craft cocktails (I recommend the<br />

French Squeezed) and wine! As for food, there are ample options, from small bites to entrées.<br />

My friend and I split three plates, so we could savor all sorts of flavors. First up, the BBQ Pork<br />

Sliders—slow roasted pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and coleslaw on top of fresh-baked rolls. In this<br />

foodie's opinion, nothing beats homemade bread, so these were clearly a favorite, so these were<br />

clearly a favorite! Also homemade were the potato chips that came alongside the sliders. Yum!<br />

and cilantro crema provided each bite with layers of fabulous flavor and textures.<br />

Truth be told, I wanted them all for myself, so sharing is not recommended. We also<br />

tried the Shrimp Lettuce Wraps served with a peanut dipping sauce that paired<br />

perfectly with the shrimp, crunchy vegetables (cucumbers, bell peppers, jicama),<br />

and creamy avocado. Pro tips: Ask for extra napkins, and maybe don’t order<br />

them if you’re on a first date. Good food? Good drinks? Good vibes? And weekly<br />

entertainment? High-Hand Brewing checks all the boxes, and more. I’ll be back!<br />

LIST<br />

THE<br />

Unstoppable<br />

Ube!<br />


There’s a new produce taking the culinary world by storm:<br />

ube (“oo-bay”)! This yam-like vegetable has won the<br />

hearts of chefs and customers all over the world, including<br />

NorCal. Keep reading for nine delicious, positively purple,<br />

ube-filled delights you can taste test at local eateries.<br />

1. Donut Forget the Ube<br />

With its naturally sweet and nutty taste,<br />

it’s no surprise that ube makes a divine<br />

donut flavor. To take a bite out of this<br />

sweet treat, head to Mochinut in Roseville<br />

for their Oreo Ube Mochi Donut. We’re<br />

sure the donut aficionados already know<br />

about these Japanese and Hawaiianinspired<br />

desserts, but if not, imagine a<br />

donut shaped like a ring of bubbles with<br />

a light, crispy exterior and soft, bouncy<br />

inside. Delicious, right? And thanks<br />

to the signature plum hue of ube, it’s<br />

Instagrammable too. 4191 Thrive Drive, Suite<br />

120, Roseville, 916-771-2276, mochinut.com<br />

2. Say Hello to Halo-Halo<br />

A Filipino staple, Halo-Halo (which means<br />

“mix-mix” in Tagalog) is one of the best<br />

ways to enjoy ube. For those unfamiliar<br />

with this frozen treat, it’s a refreshing<br />

mash-up of crushed ice, milk (typically<br />

evaporated or coconut), and unique<br />

toppings that range from jellies and fresh<br />

fruit to sweet beans and more. Our favorite<br />

local spot for the texturally exciting, “uber”<br />

tasty dessert is Teriyaki Station ATBP.<br />

Their version comes with sweet white<br />

beans, jackfruit, coconut jelly, shaved ice,<br />

and evaporated milk with ube ice cream,<br />

flan, and Rice Krispies on top. Try it—we<br />

promise you’ll like it! 141 Iron Point Road,<br />

Folsom, 916-608-4567, teriyakiatbp.com<br />

3. So Matcha to Love<br />

If you like your ube with a kick of caffeine,<br />

then Big Wave Coffeehouse has you<br />

covered. This family-owned Folsom café<br />

knows how to combine classic coffee<br />

shop staples with a taste of Hawaii. A<br />

prime example of this is their Iced Matcha<br />

Latte with an Ube Soft Top. It has that<br />

trademark earthy, matcha flavor but with a<br />

sweetness everyone can enjoy. The lightly<br />

whipped ube cream and sprinkles on top<br />

add a lavender hue and vanilla-like twist.<br />

189 Blue Ravine Road, Folsom, 916-351-5889,<br />

bigwavecoffeehouse.com<br />

4. Bread Winner<br />

Craving a traditional ube treat? Look no<br />

further than the locally owned and operated<br />

Starbread Bakery in Roseville. Though you<br />

can’t go wrong with any of their classic<br />

Filipino foodie finds—from señorita bread to<br />

malasada to lumpia—we can’t resist shining<br />

a light on their simple but scrumptious Ube<br />

Bread. These little loaves of comfort are<br />

lightly sweetened rolls filled with yummy<br />

ube paste. Take home a dozen to share with<br />

your friends or treat yourself while they’re<br />

hot and fresh. 1251 Baseline Road, Suite 130,<br />

Roseville, 916-771-0372<br />

5. Oh, Hot Yam!<br />

While ube’s popular in sweet dishes and<br />

desserts, it’s just as delicious with savory<br />

flavors. Taste this firsthand at the newly<br />

opened Adoboink in Roseville. For the<br />

perfect blend of sweet and salty, order their<br />

Chuwari-Waff: an ube waffle topped with<br />

arugula, lechon belly (pork belly), sliced<br />

apples, and a drizzle of apple butter sauce.<br />

Talk about mouthwatering! 1450 Lead Hill<br />

Boulevard, Suite 140, Roseville, 916-150-6581,<br />

adoboink.com<br />

6. Sweet & Soft (Serve)<br />

What's better than a cone piled high<br />

with swirling soft serve? One with ube<br />

soft serve, of course! For that, take a trip<br />

to Devil & Angel in Folsom—a dessert<br />

shop known for creating innovative<br />

combinations, like their signature boba<br />

ice cream and “croffles” (a croissantwaffle<br />

hybrid). Our advice? Order an<br />

original, powdered sugar dusted Croffle<br />

with Ube Soft Serve. You can get it<br />

straight up or swirled with pistachio,<br />

chocolate, vanilla bean, or cookies &<br />

cream. 280 Palladio Parkway, Suite 929,<br />

Folsom, 916-817-1811, devilnangel.com<br />

7. When Life Gives You Lemons…<br />

Looking for a little relief from the<br />

<strong>September</strong> sunshine? Quench your thirst<br />

with a tall glass of Ube Lemonade from<br />

Teaspoon. If you’ve been to one of their<br />

locations before, you might know them<br />

best for their boba-filled teas and creamy<br />

coffees, but for those days when you<br />

want something citrusy and sweet, their<br />

custom-made lemonade is here to save<br />

the day. Create your own with guava,<br />

pineapple, passionfruit, cucumber,<br />

matcha, mango, strawberry, or—of<br />

course—ube! 1171 Riley Street, Folsom,<br />

279-666-4279; 4420 Town Center Boulevard,<br />

Suite 110, El Dorado Hills, 916-932-4071;<br />

2030 Douglas Boulevard, Suite 16, Roseville,<br />

916-899-5698, teaspoonlife.com<br />

8. Crazy for Coconut<br />

Just when you thought ube couldn’t be<br />

better, boba joined the party. For this<br />

cooling delight, visit Rove Boba Tea<br />

in Placerville and order a Marble Ube<br />

Coconut. Ready to start drooling? This<br />

drink swirls together an airy and light<br />

ube puff cream with a tropical coconut<br />

slushie for the ultimate refreshment. You<br />

can always customize your drink with<br />

jellies or popping boba, too; if you want<br />

our recommendation, you can't beat their<br />

original black boba. 4370 Golden Center<br />

Drive, Suite C, Placerville, 530-306-8609<br />

9. A Tokyo Dream<br />

Don’t worry, coffee lovers—we didn’t<br />

forget about you! Thanks to ube’s soft yet<br />

earthy flavor, it’s a perfect match for a cup<br />

of joe. But don’t just add ube on top of any<br />

old pour-over. Instead, treat yourself to<br />

a cup of specialty Japanese coffee from<br />

Tokyo Cream, specifically their Japanese<br />

Ube Coffee—iced espresso topped with a<br />

generous helping of eye-popping purple<br />

ube cream. It’s the perfect midday pickme-up,<br />

especially on a toasty afternoon.<br />

Congrats to this month’s<br />

nonprofit beneficiary:<br />

STYLE <strong>Magazine</strong><br />

Leilani Fratis, CEO of Placer SPCA; Theresa Arnold-Hale, advertising director<br />

of STYLE <strong>Magazine</strong>; and Jennifer Kirk, founder and CEO of Posh Puppy Boutique and<br />

Posh Paws Grooming Salon.<br />

Since 1973, Placer SPCA has been<br />

dedicated to enhancing the lives of<br />

companion animals and supporting<br />

the human-animal bond.<br />

Today, they’re the<br />

largest and most<br />

comprehensive nonprofit<br />

animal welfare provider<br />

in Placer County, helping<br />

homeless, injured, and<br />

abandoned animals<br />

throughout the region—<br />

and when possible,<br />

beyond. In addition, they<br />

offer many innovative<br />

programs and services to ensure that people<br />

and their beloved companions stay together.<br />

Their work within the community includes<br />

adoption counseling, pet-retention services,<br />

spay/neuter assistance and education, lost<br />

and found pets, volunteer opportunities, and<br />

collaborative rescue efforts (most recently<br />

taking in some of Maui Humane Society’s<br />

“<br />

“It's the support of our<br />

loyal advertising partners,<br />

like Posh Puppy Boutique<br />

and Posh Paws Grooming<br />

Salon, that allow us the<br />

opportunity to give back to<br />

the communities we serve.”<br />

—Terry Carroll & Wendy Sipple<br />

homeless animals in their time<br />

of crisis).<br />

In honor of Placer SPCA’s<br />

50th anniversary, they’re hosting<br />

numerous<br />

celebrations, including<br />

Barktoberfest (<strong>September</strong><br />

30) and a 50th Anniversary<br />

Open House (December 11).<br />

“Placer SPCA is funded<br />

solely by donations, grants,<br />

bequests, and fees for<br />

service, and we operate<br />

independently from ASPCA<br />

or HSUS. This donation will<br />

directly help the vulnerable companion<br />

animals in our community,” shares Leilani<br />

Fratis, CEO of Placer SPCA.<br />

For more information, including ways<br />

you can donate or volunteer, visit<br />

In honor of our<br />

20th year in business,<br />

we're donating $1,000<br />

each month (through January<br />

2024) to local charitable<br />

organizations and need YOU, our<br />

readers, to help us designate<br />

the recipients. To nominate<br />
