DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE
 Makes 8 servings



In my shop, Gesine Confectionary in Montpelier Vermont, I used to make this mousse in tall cylinder cake molds, metal rings that were only about 2 inches in diameter but 4 inches tall. They were beauties. I’d fill up a serving tray with them and I had to slide them into the pastry case ever so carefully. They were so damn tall that they could easily tip over, so any miscalculation on my part would result in severing the top half of the mousse. We called them chocolate towers, of course. This is the coveted recipe. 1 C(225g) unsalted butter, small pieces 8 eggs, separated

4 C, divided (960ml) heavy cream Light and airy, yet densely rich, the contrasting character of this mousse creates a magical ending to any meal. Consider making this chocolate treat your signature dessert – it will always garner rave results. It takes just seven ingredients and some everyday kitchen techniques to assemble a chorus of ooh’s and aah’s. Serve the mouse with demitasse spoons to encourage savoring of each small bite. A must for any romantic dessert repertoire!

“Whether chocolate, lemon, strawberry, or any flavor of mousse, the process is the same. Three stages of mousse-making turn ordinary ingredients into a beguiling dessert!”

F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 6

1/2 C, divided (100g) sugar

1 Tablespoon (15ml) vanilla extract

1 LB (455g) Bittersweet chocolate pieces 1/4 Teaspoon (1.5g) salt

1. In a saucepan over low heat or in a microwave, melt the butter, making sure not to let it brown. 2. Transfer the melted butter to a large metal bowl and place the bowl over a bain-marie (simmering water in a saucepan). Attach a candy thermometer. Making sure you have a whisk ready to go, add the egg yolks, 2 cups (480 ml) of the cream, 1/4 cup (50 g) of the sugar, and the vanilla extract. Whisk like the dickens, checking to make sure the temperature has passed 160°F (71°C) - it will likely reach about 220°F (105°C) due to the constancy of the heat during whisking, but you want make sure you get to at least 160°F (71°C) to kill any potential bacteria. Sometimes the custard mixture appears to be “breaking,” as if the butter is separating from the cream. Don’t panic; it’ll be fine. Keep whisking until the custard mixture thickens to the point that it coats the back of a spoon. 3. Take the custard off the heat and immediately add the chocolate pieces, making sure all the chocolate is coated with hot custard. Let the chocolate enjoy the warm bath for a few minutes; then, with a clean whisk or a wooden spoon, stir until the chocolate is completely melted and incorporated into the custard. If you weren’t able to chop the chocolate into small W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M

enough pieces, you might be left with some chunks. If so, transfer the custard back to the bain-marie and stir constantly until every last piece is melted. Set the custard aside. Keep the bain-marie going. 4. In the clean bowl of a stand mixer, combine the egg whites, the remaining 1/4 C (50 g) sugar, and the salt. Place the bowl over the bain-marie, with the candy thermometer attached (make sure you’ve cleaned it very well since you used it last—even a tiny amount of fat introduced into the egg whites will keep them from whipping). Whisk (with a clean whisk!) the egg whites constantly until the sugar is completely melted and the temperature reaches 160°F (71°C).

5. Immediately transfer the bowl to the stand mixer and, with the whisk attachment, beat the mixture on a high until it achieves soft peaks. Don’t overbeat the egg whites. You don’t want lumpy and dry—you’re going for soft, shiny peaks. 6. With a rubber spatula, transfer about one quarter of the beaten egg whites into the chocolate custard and stir vigorously to combine the two. Transfer the remaining egg whites into the custard, and this time gently fold the egg whites into the custard, using the flat rubber spatula in sweeping motions like a gentle oar and turning the bowl as you go. This is to maintain as much of that airy texture in the egg whites as possible. At this stage, don’t be panicked if there are still bits of egg white not fully incorporated. Set the mixture aside. 7. C  lean your mixing bowl and whisk attachment and add the remaining 2 C (480 ml) cream. Whip until the cream is very stiff, but be careful not to overbeat—if the cream starts to churn, you get butter instead of fluffy whipped cream. (In the event you go overboard, all is not lost. You can save the day by adding about 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream and whisking gently. The hard knots of clotted cream will relax and you’ll be able to reverse the problem.)

1 – Making the Custard Making custard sounds intimidating, but don’t be deterred! It’s only a mixture of butter, egg yolks, cream and sugar cooked in such a way that it becomes creamy smooth. Cook it slowly over indirect heat. 2 - Introducing Airiness Mousse is light, with an even, airy texture. Beaten egg whites form the first layer of texture. Cook the egg whites and sugar over indirect heat, then whip them to the soft peak stage. Fold the whipped egg whites into the custard. 3 – Introducing more airiness The coup de grace to the developing mousse is another layer of airiness. Froth cold heavy cream to the stiff peak stage. Gradually, fold into the waiting chocolate mixture. Pour into molds, chill, and enjoy with your besties.

Cooking Indirectly

For custards and sauces with eggs, an indirect cooking method allows the ingredients to combine and cook together. A double boiler may be used, or, as the recipe notes, a bain marie may be fashioned with a heat-safe glass or metal bowl over simmering water. Constant stirring at this stage will assist in evenly cooking the mixture.

Reservations suggested for parties larger than eight.

Folding Technique

To “fold in” ingredients, a broad, flexible spatula is useful. Begin at the center of the bowl, reach the bottom, bring the spatula up the side and turn over. Repeat this folding motion turning the bowl an eighth of a turn each time. Resist the urge to stir!

Cooking with SUGAR

Applying heat to sugar unleashes multiple personalities at different cooking temperatures. As water evaporates and the sugar concentrates, its changing temperature affords the cook many different opportunities for devising wonderful sweets. Here’s how sugar changes with temperature and how you can gauge its changing physical characteristics:

350˚

Burnt-Sugar Stage Sugar concentration = 100% The sugar begins to burn and turns bitter in the process.

320-338˚

Caramel Stage Sugar concentration = 100% Test your Thermometer To test your thermometer for accuracy, boil water and take its temperature. It should register 212˚ F. If it reads high or low, adjust your temperature readings, accordingly.

Sugar Safety Cooking sugar requires basic kitchen safety techniques. As sugar heats, take care not to touch the heated sugar, nor be tempted to taste it.

Candy vs. Meat Thermometer Most kitchens need two thermometers: (1) A meat thermometer, and (2) a candy/deep frying thermometer. While there may be some overlap in use, each type is designed specifically for its purpose. A meat thermometer measures in a temperature range of 40-200˚ F and its probe is designed to be inserted into meat. A candy thermometer measures a wider range, from 40400˚ F, and is designed to clip onto the edge of a cooking pan for continuous readings. Choose a candy thermometer that displays individual degrees well and is easy to read.

Sugar this stage is caramelizing. There is no water left in the sugar; it is a light amber at the low end of the range, and a dark amber as it becomes hotter. Caramel-coated molds, pralines, glazes

300-310˚

Hard Crack Stage Sugar concentration = 99%

Sugar at this stage is very hot. A drop placed in cold water forms hard, brittle threads that crack when bent. Toffee, brittles, lollipops, glazes

270-290˚

Soft Crack Stage Sugar concentration = 95% Smaller, tightly packed bubbles appear on the surface of the cooking sugar. When dripped into cold water, the sugar forms flexible, bendable threads. Taffy, butterscotch

250-265˚

Hard-Ball Stage Sugar concentration = 92% The sugar dripping from a spoon forms threads. A drop in cold water forms a hard ball that will not flatten between your fingers. Marshmallows, nougats, rock candy

245-250˚

Firm-Ball Stage Sugar concentration = 87% A drop of sugar in a cup of cold water will form a firm ball. When removed from the water, it will keep its shape but can still be squished between your fingers. Caramels

235-240˚

Soft-Ball Stage Sugar concentration = 85% The sugar dropped in a cup of cold water will form a soft, pliable ball. When removed from the water and placed in a spoon, it will spread and flatten. Fudge, fondant, pralines, buttercreams

230-235˚

Thread Stage Sugar concentration = 80%

Sugar cooked to this stage will be syrupy and clear in character. Candies, simple syrups

Also commonly known as “flan”, the next dessert is another sweet ending to be savored bite by bite. We included this portioned dessert just in case your valentine doesn’t enjoy chocolate. It’s a do-ahead dessert that has a dramatic presentation with its secret caramel sauce. Serve in a shallow bowl or on a rimmed plate that puddles the liquid caramel around the molded custard. Luxuriate in each spoonful.

Crème

CARAMEL

Makes 4 servings

Crème caramel is a kissing cousin to crème anglaise, a sexy little custard cooked in a caramel bath and upended so that the amber syrup flows around it to form a pool of luscious sweetness. This dessert mix also goes by the alias “flan.” For the Caramel: 1 drop lemon juice 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar 3 tablespoons (45 ml) water 1 large bowl ice water For the Custard: 2 cups (480 ml) whole milk 1/4 teaspoon (1.5 g) salt 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla bean paste 1/2 cup (100 g) sugar 4 eggs Berries, to garnish, to taste Whipped cream, for garnish, to taste Procedure for the Caramel: 1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and lemon juice, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. The sugar will melt and caramelize quickly, so keep stirring and adjusting the heat; you want the sugar to melt evenly and to have a golden brown color. Make sure your lighting is very good, because it can be hard to see the exact hue of your caramel. W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M

2. When the color reaches a dark amber, immediately remove the saucepan from the heat and gently place it over the ice water to stop the caramelization process. Take care not to splash any water into your caramel. 3. Immediately spoon a small amount of caramel into each of four 8-ounce ramekins and swirl to create an even layer. Set aside. Procedure for the Custard: 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). 2. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, bring the milk, salt, and vanilla paste just to a simmer. 3. In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the sugar and eggs. 4. Slowly pour the hot milk mixture along the side of the bowl and into the eggs. Whisk until well combined. 5. Return the sauce to the saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the mixture thickens to the point that it just coats the back of a spoon. 6. Strain the custard mixture. I prefer to strain the custard into a large measuring cup with a spout to make pouring easier. 7. Place the ramekins in a deep baking dish (I use a casserole dish or a deep brownie pan) and place the baking dish on a sheet pan. At this point you can proceed on a kitchen countertop if you have steady hands; or you can choose to pull an oven rack out far enough to use that as a work surface. In the latter case, you have to work quickly to keep the temperature of the oven from dipping to low. If this is how you choose to proceed, increase the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C), and once you’re done filling the ramekins and the water bath, turn the temperature down to 350°F (175°C). 8. Pour the custard mixture evenly into the ramekins, to just below the tops. F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 6

CARAMEL

9. Pour hot water in the baking dish to create a bath for the ramekins. The water should reach about 3/4 up the outside of the ramekins. Pour the water slowly so that it doesn’t splash into the custard. Carefully place the baking dish inside the oven. 10. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until set. 11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely at room temperature. You can keep the ramekins in the water bath—they will cool more slowly, but it’s safer than pulling hot ramekins from scalding water with clunky oven mitts. Transfer the ramekins to the refrigerator to chill for several hours. 12. To unmold the crème caramel, slowly and evenly run a very thin pairing knife along the inside edge of each ramekin, keeping the knife flat against the edge to keep from cutting into the custard. Place a plate on top of each ramekin and invert the two together so that the ramekin is sitting upside down on the plate. Gently shake the ramekin, until it slides out. 13. Serve with berries and whipped cream

Crème Caramel is two stages: It’s a versatile choice relevant to any occasion, all-year long. The best part, it’s another do-ahead opportunity. Well-wrapped molds will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but they do not freeze well. 1: Making the Caramel The thin caramel sauce that coats the mold and puddles at its base is sugar and water at its caramelized stage. 2: Making the Custard Cook the custard slowly. Temper the eggs with warmed milk, then gradually increase the heat while gently stirring.

What is Vanilla Bean paste? Occasionally, vanilla paste is called for a recipe instead of vanilla extract. Vanilla extract is vanilla bean infused into an alcohol base. Vanilla bean paste is vanilla bean scraped into a thick sweet syrup and includes the tiny, black seeds of the bean. It’s particularly nice in applications where the black specks are visible and add to the dish.

Clear your mind of standard frosting expectations. This topping is a layer of fudge that dissolves deliciously in your mouth. It’s not the kind of frosting that coats the roof of your mouth with shortening or quickly becoming sickly sweet – it’s so much better!

Cookbook Review SUGARBABY, Confections, Candies, Cakes & Other Delicious Recipes for Cooking with Sugar By Gesine Bullock-Prado. Published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang, an imprint of ABRAMS, New York, N.Y. Copyright 2011. We fell in love with this book when it was first published, and have been waiting for Valentine’s Day to roll around so it could be featured. The book is about cooking with sugar and is uniquely organized by what happens to sugar at its various temperatures. This arrangement is a superb lesson on this common ingredient and the unique chemistry that can happen in the kitchen when heat is applied. Ms. Bullock-Prado has a knack for entertaining writing with explanations and analogies that are apt for turning the average cook into an impressive pastry chef. She takes special care to highlight risky steps while guiding us toward first time success with each recipe. 26

Add wine and increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring, until the wine is almost absorbed, 1-3 mins.

4. Add enough of the hot broth to just cover the rice mixture. Adjust the heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until almost all the broth is absorbed. Continue to add the hot broth, about 1/2 C at a time, stirring after each addition until all the liquid has been absorbed and adjusting the heat as necessary to maintain a simmer, until the rice begins to get creamy, 10-15 mins. Stir in the remaining 1 C pears. 5. Continue to add broth, about 1/2 C at a time, stirring after each addition until all the liquid has been absorbed and adjusting the heat as necessary to maintain a simmer, until the rice is just tender, 10-15 mins more. Remove from the heat and let stand for 1 min. Stir in cheese and butter. Season with pepper.

 

• 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth • 1 cup quinoa (see Tips), rinsed if necessary • 2 tablespoons walnut oil or canola oil

Plaster Paint CONTRIBUTED BY REAL DEALS

What is so special about our Plaster Paint? Plaster Paint eliminates the need to sand, strip or prime and the plaster effect also hides small imperfections like water stains and small cracks. You can create a "shabby" look or age your project to perfection with a light sanding or a damp sponge and after applying our famous Plaster Paint Paste Wax you will have a durable fine furniture finish!

Plaster Paint can be used on most any surface including cabinetry and countertops!

When to Seal before Painting: Occasionally you may need to seal your project before painting. This is sometimes necessary when painting on raw wood to seal any sap seepage. Also if the piece is extremely old as it may have been sealed with oil based stains and never actually sealed. Also things such as nicotine or grease can create voids or bleed through. A simple way to test is to clean the piece first and then take a damp paper towel and rub the surface. If it comes back with a yellow or brown color then you will need to seal before painting. Use Plaster Paint Liquid Wax or paste wax to seal and then allow to dry fully before painting.

W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M

Simple Instructions for Use:

1. W  ipe any dust/dirt off your project seal if necessary as stated above. 2. Open paint and stir well. Pour the amount of paint you plan to use into a glass or plastic jar. This will keep your paint container clean and the remaining paint from drying out. Always wipe the rim of your paint container so the paint does not dry there making it difficult to put the lid on or off. 3. Keep a cup of water next to your project and dampen your brush prior to painting. As you paint, if the paint feels thick or feels like it is pulling back then re-dampen your brush as needed. Paint a first coat using a thin coat of paint and allow to dry completely. Don't apply your paint too thick! As the air hits the outer layer it will start to dry trapping any paint in the middle which can keep it from curing

properly. Drying time can vary depending on factors like humidity. It is helpful to use a small fan to keep the air circulating while painting. Do not place the fan directly on the wet project as this can cause a crackling effect. 4. If a solid color is what you want, then paint a second coat and allow to dry as above. Remember not to put to much paint on at one time. 5. If you like a finish without brush strokes you can opt to lightly sand your dry piece going in the opposite direction of your brush strokes. The other way is to dip your brush into water and paint over the entire piece and allow to dry. This is not required but something you can do to achieve an extremely fine finish. 6. To achieve a "shabby" or "distressed" look, use a damp sponge and apply light pressure by rubbing the areas you choose to remove paint. Continue this until you have the desired look. If you take to much off- no worries, simply reapply more paint and allow to dry. If a crisp edge is what you desire use a sanding sponge and remove the paint along the edges.

Seal your project with a Paste or Liquid Wax: PASTE WAX: Use a natural bristle brush and apply a very thin coat of paste wax. Once you have applied the wax, wait just a few minutes until dry to the touch and then buff using an electric buffer or a soft cloth applying light pressure to create heat and friction. You will feel the project change from dull to silky smooth! Allow your project to cure for several days for added durability. THE FINISH WILL BE STUNNING! For an extremely hard, finish and for surfaces such as kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and dining table tops, repeat the waxing and buffing process and then allow to cure for up to 3 to 7 days prior to heavy use. The most important thing about Paste Wax is do not apply to much or it will not cure and buff out properly. Also don't let it dry to long before you buff and this will create a matte look instead of a fine furniture finish.

LIQUID WAX: Allow painted piece to fully dry before applying Liquid Wax. When dipping your brush into the Liquid Wax pull brush straight up and out of canister and straight onto the piece. Do do not wipe excess wax on the sides of can, this can cause bubbles which can be transferred onto your piece. Apply in even long strokes and avoid going back and forth over the same area as this can "distress" and remove your paint. Remember the paint is water based and made to distress so going back and forth with your brush and the liquid wax can remove the paint in those areas. You can also use a damp sponge to go over the liquid wax after it is applied to make it very smooth and to remove any brush strokes. Let dry for about 25 to 45 minutes before applying a second coat and then to fully cure let sit over night.

How to Layer and Distress between Colors Paint first coat and allow to dry. Seal your first color by applying a coat of Plaster Paint Liquid Wax Matte or Super Gloss and allow to fully dry. Paint second color coat and allow to dry. Wet a natural sponge, which is a sponge without dyes or colors which could transfer onto your piece, and squeeze out all the water leaving the sponge damp. Lightly rub areas you wish to distress removing the top color and allowing the first color to show through. You can also achieve a "chippy" look by using a damp sanding sponge and removing more of the top layer. Your final step is to seal using either the Plaster Paint Paste Wax or a final coat of Liquid Wax.

New Fashion Statement

s e i r o s s e c Ac This is not a story about the competitive side of sports. This is a story about fashion and personalities within the game and the players just happen to be the vehicles.

more popular. This trend spread quickly with players like Manny Ramirez and Prince Fielder seemingly wearing as baggy jersey and pants as they could find.

Obviously this isn’t the first fashion trend that has been seen within the sport. In the 1910’s through the 1930’s, players like Babe Ruth wore baggy high pants with stirrups and a baggy uniform with an undershirt. This trend continued into the 1940’s and 1950’s with stars like Jackie Robinson.

Not only have the jerseys changed throughout the time baseball has been around. Initially baseball players used to wear the bill of their hats rounded off around their eyes. Now with the influence of pop culture, players such as Fernando Rodney and Felix Hernandez, of the Seattle Mariners, wear the bill of their hats more flat. Rodney often tends to lean his cap off to either side of his head too.

The 1960’s, 1970’s, and the 1980’s brought players like Reggie Jackson and Rickie Henderson who were known for wearing slimmer, tighter looking jerseys and pants. A lot of the players during this time still wore stirrups as well. In the 1990’s Barry Bonds was one of the primary players to make wearing longer, baggier pants

Among many companies producing accessories for baseball players, EvoShield was founded in 2006 and has been very successful having their gear on almost every team throughout the MLB. The company is known for creating very popular arm sleeves, wrist braces, elbow guards, and ankle/foot guards. EvoShield is just one of many companies creating more gear specifically for baseball players. As the volume of add-ons specifically being made for baseball players grew, it was only a matter of time before these accessories were present at the collegiate level. At the University of Nevada, Reno, this trend can be seen on many players from both the D1 team and on their club baseball team. A lot of players on both teams express themselves by wearing many accessories or none at all.

The Showman Junior, Marquis Onorato is the starting shortstop on the UNR Club baseball team. Onorato prides

himself on wearing several entities that stray away from the simple jersey and pants look. “I wear high baggy pants with stirrups because that’s what my dad liked to see the players wear,” explains Onorato on why he wears the things he does.

Onorato explains the reason for initially wearing his ¾ sleeve undershirt and arm sleeve were to replicate what players like Derek Jeter and Mike Trout wear while they play the game. But now Onorato is so used to playing with them on that it seems unnatural to play without them. “When I step on the field I want look better than the shortstop from the other team,” Onorato

attire the most, it’s similar to the way I like to present myself when I play,” expresses senior first baseman of the UNR Club team, Nick Scolini.

Onorato wears his accessories primarily for the visual side of things. The only additional item he wears with the strict purpose of a safety precaution is his wrist tape on his left wrist.

Buster Posey is the starting catcher for the San Francisco Giants. Posey is seen wearing the same in-game attire for every game. It’s simple, and the few accessories he does wear are there to benefit his game.

“70 percent of what I wear is to look good while I play, the other 30 percent is for safety precautions,” States Onorato.

Scolini wears an EvoShield wrist guard on his left wrist and a throwing sleeve on his right arm in almost every game he plays. His wrist guard is there to prevent injuries. Initially, Scolini wore the arm sleeve because of the players he saw wearing them in the MLB, but now wearing it is just part of his game. Scolini also strives for comfort wearing long baggy pants. Much like Posey, Scolini doesn’t let the options of accessories distract his game; he stays consistent every game so he just has to worry about playing well.

The Ball Player

Marked by simplicity, Junior Mark Nowaczawski doesn’t see the need to wear accessories while he plays. Nowaczawski is a pitcher on the UNR D1 baseball team and was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 27th round of the 2013 MLB Draft.

“I wear these guards for protection. I wanna get hit to get on base,” explains junior outfielder and pitcher, Trenton Brooks of the UNR D1 baseball team. Brooks led the 2015 Wolf Pack to win their first Mountain West title in school history.

As a pitcher, he stereotypically isn’t supposed to be known for wearing many accessories since pitcher limitations on what they can and cannot wear are much more strict. But even when Nowaczawski was a position player in high school he didn’t wear anything extra. “I don’t believe wearing anything extra will improve my ability,” says Nowaczawski. When it comes to accessories, Nowaczawski doesn’t care about them, expressing a figurative wall where they’re irrelevant to him. This can be beneficial to him though, while some pitchers get intimidated based on what the batter is wearing, this doesn’t get to Nowaczawski. To Nowaczawski, it doesn’t matter how confident the batter is when he steps in the batters box because Nowaczawski understands that regardless of what the player is wearing, the player must perform.

Brooks’ intentions behind his additional gear are strictly to enhance his ability. The more he doesn’t have to worry about getting injured the more he can focus on benefiting his team on the field. Brooks wears an EvoShield elbow guard on his left elbow and an EvoShield foot/ankle guard on his left foot while hitting. Brooks explained that with the addition of the guards he can stay close to the plate without having to worry about getting injured by an inside pitch. According to Brooks, he believes that Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners looks the best when it comes to wearing accessories. “He has that Dominican swagger,” states Brooks, describing the confidence Cano emulates while playing. Cano also wears an elbow guard as well as a foot/ ankle guard among many other accessories. But Cano doesn’t budge at a fastball coming at him because the gear is there to protect him. Brooks hopes to display his confidence through the way he plays much like Cano does.

Whether it’s wearing multiple accessories or none, these players define themselves based on what they decide to wear each game. Everyone knows that adding more gear won’t factually improve your ability on the field, but it does give the audience a better understanding of who each player is.

BULLETPROOF COFFEE BEANS:

If you are a coffee lover like I am... you will appreciate Bulletproof Coffee. What caught my attention was the fact that it’s organic (no mold.) The Bulletproof coffee beans are grown at high altitude in Guatemala, hand harvested, carefully processed, handled and roasted to maintain integrity and flavor. The final roast is then tested to verify the coffee meets the bulletproof quality and purity standards. Price $22.99

PET ADVICE COLUMN

Every Month Is

Dental Month WRIT TEN BY SHANNA SUT TON, LV T

“Your name is Yuck Mouth, you don't brush you’ve got to cover your mouth like this, they call you Yuck Mouth, and you refuse to brush. Sorry but, NO sweetheart you can keep that KISS!”

Pet Personals

Dental disease in pets is preventable so don't turn your nose to your pet's bad breath! The odor might signify a serious health risk, with the potential to damage not only your pet's teeth and gums but its internal organs as well. It is estimated that 75% of pets in the United States have some degree of dental disease. Periodontal disease is defined as infection and inflammation of the gums and bone that surround and support the teeth. Periodontal disease is the most frequent disorders found in pets. It develops, as a result of buildup of bacterial plaque and the presence of calculus when no hygiene program is implemented. When periodontal disease is present, BRUSHING your pet’s teeth is too late and dental cleaning is required to get back on track. According to the American Association of Veterinary Dentistry, 80% of dogs and 70% cats (YES cats need dental care too) over the age three years old are affected by tartar build up.

Consequences of Periodontal Disease Include: • Bad breath known as halitosis • Bleeding and inflammation of the gums • Gingival retraction or recession • Loose or lost teeth • Yellowing or staining of the teeth • Soreness of gums (evident in inability to eat) • Pain and discomfort, abscessed teeth • Excessive drooling • Jaw fractures due to bone loss If you are unsure if your pet is in need of dental care or has any issues, lift the lip and take a look or you could bring your pet in for Oral exam. As if you need another reason to visit the Vet, add on “checking the teeth to the list”. Let us create a treatment plan (estimate) that will go over exactly what we do and how we can help you take care of your pets dental needs. We can provide home care plan after dental cleaning. Caring for your pet’s teeth and gums is as important as caring for your own. Dogs and cats accumulate plaque five times faster than humans. One mg of plaque contains over 1 trillion bacteria. Imagine going five days without brushing your teeth! Elko Veterinary Clinic would be happy to work with you to develop an oral home hygiene plan for your pet. This would include going over how to begin brushing your pet's teeth and many other options that are available. If you are considering brushing your pets teeth remember that pets require special toothpaste. NEVER use human toothpaste or baking soda as these products are harmful if swallowed. Special pet toothpastes rely on enzymatic rather than brushing action to work. Thus merely applying them to your pet's teeth will reduce tartar. Not all bad breath is a result of dental disease. Some disease conditions can adversely affect the health of the mouth for example, renal disease and diabetes. Pets often hide their medical problems, systemic diseases may go undetected without diagnostic testing. That is why we include pre-operative blood screenings for all of our dental patients. The health of your pet is our TOP priority and also the major determinant of what we can do, how long we have to do it, how involved the anesthesia will be, and what kind of support we need to provide during anesthesia.

Loving Hearts caring for Furry Faces

Keeping your pet's teeth clean will help to improve your pet's quality of life and keep them free of oral pain. It will also help prevent recurring bad breath and prolong the life of your pet's teeth by slowing gum and bone erosion. Ultimately good oral hygiene will also prolong your pet's life by guarding against serious infection of the gums, liver, kidneys and/or heart thus optimizing our pet's health so they live longer lives. Schedule an appointment with Elko Veterinary Clinic and receive a dental discount and dental care package to take home. Let us help you to receive as many clean kisses as possible.

W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M


Aries: March 21- April 19 (COMMITMENT)

Fiery Aries, it’s time to put a ring on it! Whether a proposal, contract, agreement or application, sign on the dotted line. While choosing not to choose is still a choice, the refusal to check the empty box this month equates to “you snooze, you lose”.

Taurus: April 20 - May 20 (10 MENTAL)

Earthly Taurus, “Peace on Earth, Goodwill Towards Men” isn’t just a feel-good Christmas sentiment. In fact, if we all kept this holiday phrase in the forefront of our minds, life would be a lot more pleasant. In this month celebrating love, bury the hatchet (in the ground-not someone’s head).

Gemini: May 21- June 21 (7 MATERIAL)

Airy Gemini, when’s the last time you counted the cost? Evaluated your ROI? Better to stop an unfruitful investment (despite what’s gone into it) than continue with the financial, energetic and time bleed. Salvage and re-purpose what you can, but stop the loss.

Libra: September 23 October 22 (7 MENTAL) Airy Libra, what are you trying to get away with this month? Sneaking around, covering up, trying to avoid detection… Wouldn’t it be better to live openly, freely and truthfully? Hiding is a burden, but shouting from the rooftops is liberation.

Scorpio: October 23 November 21 (4 EMOTING) Watery Scorpio, the best way to conquer boredom or apathy is to MOVE. Go out for a walk, take a swim at the Y, catch a movie, visit a museum, try a new restaurantchanging scenery and engaging with the outside world will do you loads of good this month.

Sagittarius: November 22 December 21 (10 ENERGY) Fiery Sagittarius, it’s time to get some help for those burdens you’ve been carrying. There’s no shame in asking for assistance or delegating tasks. You can’t “do it all”, nor can you be all things to all people. Stop. Unload. Rest.

(QUESTER EMOTING)

Capricorn: December 22 January 19 (5 MATERIAL)

Watery Cancer, pining for what you can’t have is a form of self-abuse. Likewise, chasing after rude, unavailable (i.e. married) or narcissistic riff-raff. Value yourself, and others will, too. Lowering your standards reduces your self-worth in direct proportion: this is an equation you can count on.

Earthy Capricorn, when you see a needfill it. You already know how to be an indispensable workhorse (mostly for personal advancement), but this month, look outside yourself (and the box) for ways to contribute to the community. Become both benefactor and asset.

Leo: July 23 - August 22 (JUSTICE)

Aquarius: January 20 February 18 (3 MENTAL)

Cancer: June 22 - July 22

Fiery Leo, the Egyptian goddess, Ma’at, weighed the hearts of the deceased against a feather: if the heart was lighter, the soul passed on to the afterlife. This month requires you to weigh the “spirit” of the law against the “letter” of the law. Would you rather be “right”…or happy?

Virgo: August 23 September 22 (MOON) Earthy Virgo, not all is as it seems this month. Don’t assume that understanding the tip is the same as knowledge of the whole iceberg. What lies beneath? Shadows play tricks on the eye, leading us to assume hat racks are intruders…or friends are foes.

W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M

Airy Aquarius, you’re no stranger to being on the fringe. Fiercely independent, yet humanitarian, the push-pull you experience with people often aggravates and separates. You’re feeling on the outside yet again, but take heart: you do your best work as a lone wolf.

Pisces: February 19 - March 20 (IMPERMANENCE)

Watery Pisces, nothing lasts forever. Let go of toxic relationships, habits, expectations and addictions. A happier, healthier you awaits on the other side of change. Yes, it may be uncomfortable-but better to embrace the winds of transformation than fight against it.

Fashion Trends 2016

n o i h s a F in is m o o l B Full Although we are still buried in snow….. the spring season is approaching…. and fashion is in full bloom, or should I say has bloomed. With all of the Spring Runway events completed….they have been summarizing this Spring 2016 as the new 90’s. To sum it up you can’t go wrong this spring if you focus on highlighting romantic florals, bedroom eyes, lots of sparkle, stripes, exposed shoulders, denim, some ruffles, a bit of tie-dye and silver! Some of you may be really excited about this…..perhaps not everyone….but I have pulled a few of the major trends that I think we can all easily include and enjoy!

The 10 must have spring additions to your wardrobe: 1. THE SLIP DRESS/BLOUSE - really this was used by every designer, some looking more like pajamas then a dress, but all trimmed with lace or scalloped edges. It may be a little out of our comfort zones, but if you consider going out in your nightie??? I guess that wouldn’t be a bad thing! If you’re anything like me, a dress may seem like a little to much so luckily it’s pretty easy to find the “blouse” version! 2. GINGHAM!!! Love the large gingham pattern! It’s like wearing a picnic..really a spring version of the buffalo check that was so popular this past winter season. 3.THE BACKPACK - well let’s just say everyone had one on and now it seems like everyone needs one!

65


4. MULE SLIPPERS - this one is awesome!!!!! We are going to be so comfortable this spring! Find a pair of these great mules pronto! You can always spend a lot or a little on shoes, but getting out and grabbing yourself a pair of these will ensure that you will be wearing the hottest flats of the season with an added bonus of being super comfortable! Yay! 5. EXTRA LONG EARRINGS - shoulder-grazing lengths were on everyone and interestingly enough they were mismatched - perfectly. This is an easy integration, simply buy two new pairs of earrings to clash or grab 2 of your old favorites and make sure they are long! 6. STRIPES - gotta love them…don’t panic about running out and buying new blouses or sweaters…I’m certain you have some stripes in your closet…just pull those out and layer them into your everyday wear! 7. RUFFLES - some designers are really layering up the ruffles, but most are using them sparsely. Either way they add such a flowy, feminine feel to any outfit- gorgeous!

8. SHOULDERS! OK, so according to the fashion police if you have the opportunity to show your shoulders this spring - DO! From off-theshoulder tops, asymmetrical necklines to cutouts, you can’t go wrong! Whew…that one should be easy to pull off! 9. PETITE PLEATS - well it wouldn’t be spring without a pleat or two… the micro versions are gorgeous and a little bit vintage feeling. 10. THE ROMANTIC LOOK…lots of florals are hitting the spring lines…this look can easily be brought into your wardrobe with a cute blouse, spring dress or with an accessory! OKAY…HAD TO ADD IN A NUMBER 11….. 11. THE RIPPED JEANS…they are still in. Don’t have a pair?? Don’t worry, jump online where there are millions of tutorials on how to rip a pair of your jeans, right now, the right way!

… The Health Column …

Contributed by Dr. Todd Wendell of Ruby Mountain Chiropractic

» SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS While the pharmaceutical industry spends millions promoting prescription medications, natural chiropractic care has survived for over a century. How? By delighted patients telling others. Good oldfashioned word of mouth has helped those who had previously lived with persistent, pesky pain to seek gentle, natural chiropractic care. If you’ve experienced the benefits of chiropractic care in your life, then there’s no time better than now to share how chiropractic has helped you. Encourage someone to visit us and allow us to locate and reduce the cause of his or her pain naturally, without drugs. How can you explain chiropractic care? Simple. The focus is on reducing nerve interference, usually along the spine because the moving bones of the spinal column are common culprits producing the nerve interference. Share your story with others so their body can do what it was designed to, and they can get back to enjoying those activities they love.

» WILL ADJUSTMENTS MAKE MY SPINE TOO LOOSE You may have heard this concern voiced by those who don’t fully understand how chiropractic works. Most spinal problems come in pairs. Usually there’s an area of the spine that is not moving adequately, accompanied by another area that compensates by moving too much.

» MAKING A FRESH START Did you eat too much during the holiday season? Are you planning to start a crash diet in the New Year and spend hundreds of dollars on gym memberships and workout attire just to ease your guilt? Consider taking a different approach to a healthy 2016! It serves a better purpose to consider a lifestyle change, rather than just making changes that will only last for a few weeks or maybe months. Recognize that you’ve enjoyed eating whatever you want and make the decision to ease yourself gently back to a healthier way of life. So, where do you begin? One of the simplest steps is to schedule regular visits to our practice. Have any interference to your nervous system reduced and allow your body to function as it was designed to.

This area can even be at opposite ends of the spine! They’re called compensation reactions. Your body is constantly dealing with the force of gravity. When one area of your spine malfunctions, an equal and opposite reaction can appear elsewhere. This is why practice members are often surprised that we examine their upper back when their complaint is in their lower back. Our goal is to avoid the compensations and focus on the primary subluxations. The spinal joints that move too much are avoided so muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal. When we add motion to stuck spinal joints, areas that are too loose can properly heal.

While you’re here, let’s discuss your health goals and the best way for you to reach them. 70

Heating Safety There is something about the winter months and curling up with a good book

by the fireplace. But did you know that heating equipment is one of the leading causes of home fire deaths? With a few simple safety tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from happening.

Be warm & safe this winter! »Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. »Have a three foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. »Never use your oven to heat your home. »Have a qualified professional install stationary space heating equipment, water heaters or central heating equipment according to the local codes and manufacturer’s instructions. »Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional. »Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed. »Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel burning space heaters. »Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home. »Test smoke alarms monthly.

Heating Equipment Smarts

»»»»»»»»»»

FACT Half of home heating fires are reported during the months of December, January, and February.

»  I nstall wood burning stoves following manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the installation.

» A  ll fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

» Install and maintain CO alarms to avoid the risk of CO poisoning. If you

smell gas in your gas heater, do not light the appliance. Leave the home immediately and call your local fire department or gas company.

Children’s Dental Health:

A Decade of Wisdom DALLIN C. YOUNG DDS Board Certified Pediatric Dentist Children’s Dentistry of Elko

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, a perfect time to review and recommit to healthy dental habits for our children.

I recently turned the corner of ten years in private practice as a pediatric dentist. The wisdom I obtained in private practice in addition to my two year pediatric dental residency program after dental school opened my eyes to how different the needs of children are when compared to adults. While it is true that all 20 baby teeth will eventually fall out, baby teeth play a very important role in children’s overall health particularly with growth and development. Baby teeth are critical in the role of speech development, eating a healthy diet, holding space for future permanent teeth, and social development (smiling!). For most children, the last baby tooth falls out between 11-13 years old! A toothache from a baby tooth can be every bit as painful and dangerous as a permanent tooth. Painful cavities in baby teeth can affect children’s quality of sleep, ability to eat a healthy diet, concentration in school, temperament, and overall become an obstacle to reach their full potential. In this article, I will summarize some of the most important dental health issues at each stage of a child’s life up through adulthood. Believe it or not, an infant’s dental health starts before pregnancy! For prospective parents, particularly mothers, who are most often the primary care giver, attending to your own dental health will give your future children the best chance for a healthy set of teeth. None of us were born with cavity causing bacteria in our mouths. We were infected with them at some point, usually by our primary caregiver. That’s right! Cavities are an infectious disease! So, the best thing to do to reduce the concentration of cavity causing bacteria in our mouths is to get a thorough dental exam and get all those cavities taken care of before your children even become a twinkle in your eyes. Infant dental care starts before their first tooth erupts. Regularly cleansing of your infant’s gums with a soft, moist washcloth or infant toothbrush will not only clean the bacterial film off of their gums, but will prepare them for real tooth brushing in the near future. Once the first tooth appears (average 6 months old), it is time to transition to the infant toothbrush and a smear (about the size of a grain of rice) of children’s fluoridated toothpaste. Push the

80

F E B R U A RY 2 0 1 6

toothpaste into the toothbrush bristles to ensure it will cover their teeth evenly. An adult should brush their infant child’s teeth morning and night. I am supportive of allowing the child “practice” brushing their teeth, but they won’t have the dexterity to actually do a good job until they are somewhere between 7 and 10 years old (at which time they will continue to require adult supervision and assistance). 6 months after the first tooth erupts or by your infant’s first birthday, it is time to establish a dental home. A pediatric dentist is specially trained and comfortable evaluating one year old infants. We focus this first visit on evaluating the infant’s diet, oral habits, recommended fluoride intake, oral hygiene, and growth and development. Most importantly, we teach parents how to avoid early childhood cavities, a growing, but preventable disease in infants and children. One of the most common forms of early childhood cavities is due to “bottle rot”. If an infant falls asleep drinking milk (including breast milk), juice or any sweetened beverage, the bacteria in their mouths feast on the sugars in the liquid and produce acid. The acid eats away at the tooth enamel and quickly dissolves the minerals keeping the tooth strong and healthy. The result is a very early form of severe dental decay that can cause pain, infection and tooth loss as early as one year old. Nighttime nursing on demand, or sending the infant to bed with a bottle or sippy-cup of milk or juice are the primary causes of severe early childhood cavities. This is a completely preventable disease yet is one of the most severe forms of cavities that I treat. As infants become toddlers (2-3 years old), they will finish growing in all 20 baby teeth. Most children develop tight contacts between their molars, and often their front teeth as well. Starting at age 3, the most common cavities I have seen form in between two tight teeth. These are the “flossing cavities”, or the “need to floss more” cavities. Flossing is a challenge for most of us, and requesting that a parent/guardian floss a three year old’s teeth daily is easier said than done. And to add to the challenge is using proper technique. When you floss your teeth, it is not effective to simply move the floss in and out of the contact. You have to scrub the side of each of the teeth in W W W. E V E R Y T H I N G E L K O . C O M


a motion not that different from shining your shoes. Our assistants train parents all day long how to floss correctly and help their children avoid these pesky in between cavities. Children will improve their spitting technique (for

better or for worse), and can use a pea size amount of children’s fluoridated toothpaste twice per day once they are spitting much better than swallowing. Parents and guardians will need to continue to brush for the child, but having them practice is highly recommended. Dietary issues change for children in the 3-7 year old range. Bottles and sippy cups are hopefully no longer the problem, but sweetened beverages, such as flavored milk (chocolate and strawberry) and juice become the cause of most cavities in this age range. Focus on regular “white” milk and water, particularly between meals. The occasional sweetened beverage will not cause as much damage to teeth if it is consumed with a meal. After brushing and flossing their teeth at night, nothing but water until morning.

Older children (8 years old thru teenage years) struggle with soda pop and sports drinks. These beverages are highly destructive and can even destroy a permanent tooth to the point that it may need a crown. Again, the occasional sweetened beverage is best consumed at a meal rather than as a snack, or sipped on throughout

the day. Mouth guards are very important for children who play contact sports. Parents and guardians need to continually monitor older children and teenagers to ensure regular and proper brushing and flossing. Using an over the counter fluoride mouth rinse is highly recommended, particularly if your child has had a cavity previously. Regular 6 month dental check-ups and cleanings from age 1 should become a lifelong habit.

Your dentist will customize home care and fluoride and treatment recommendations specifically geared towards your child’s needs. Cavities and dental problems rarely get out of control if your child is being seen by the dentist every 6 months. Cavities never disappear if you ignore them, and small cavities usually grow into large cavities and become more difficult, and expensive to treat. These are some of the most important aspects of maintaining dental health from infancy through the teenage years. There are of course many other topics that were not addressed but are also of great importance. I encourage you to contact your local dentist with additional questions who will be happy assist you, or visit our office adjacent to Albertson's in Elko. We are accepting new patients and do not require a referral. To schedule an appointment, call (775) 299-4790.

For the eleventh year in a row Great Basin College brings several independent films to town for moviegoers who enjoy something out of the ordinary. All films begin at 7 p.m. with tickets ($7 for the

general public and $6.50 for students and senior citizens) available

for purchase 45 minutes before the film starts. The only exception

is the Feb. 11 showing of short films where tickets go on sale Jan. 11 at Duncan Little Creek and will also be sold at the door prior to

the movie. As in past years, local culinary sponsors offer appetizers prior to the movie. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. at GBC and tables for appetizers will be set up in the solarium adjacent to the theater.

The GBC Film Committee welcomes all independent film lovers interested in selecting next year’s films to contact committee chair Russ Minter at 775-777-6093. The Film Festival is just one of several cultural events sponsored by the GBC Arts and Cultural Enrichment Committee. Information about upcoming events can be found at www.gbcnv.edu/ace.

“Our goal is to bring great films to Elko that have not appeared in local theaters for all film fans to enjoy,” notes Minter.
