GRAY LADY

Dark hues ruled the runways and can power your winter wardrobe G

onna wash that gray right outta your wardrobe this winter? Not so fast – not when fashion designers are showing off their dark sides this season. Get ready to go gray with your shopping list and you’ll find that there’s a silver lining out there too: These shadowy colors go with everything. Blacks and grays are prominent and that is directly attributable to the economy and the practical mindset that has swept over the country. Experts predicts that we’ll all be wrapping up in dark hues for winter, but we will be “stronger” for it. Just take a look at the name that Pantone, the international color continued on page11

forecasting service, has come up with to identify their new gray this fashion season – iron. It is strong yet understated, and can even be considered the ‘new black’– a somewhat warmer gray with an undertone of brown – a grounded color that works so well as background to so many other shades. As the Dow dips, fashion designers are sending out their iron maidens ready to do battle in the dark days ahead. But these are anything but depressing clothes.We may be in some tough times, but the runways were full of glimmering signs that we’re always in survival mode and we want to look good no matter what our stock portfolios say. Even the classics are getting a dimmer twist this fall. Burberry’s newest fall lineup steers away from the British company’s age-old traditional camel plaid patterns and comes up with an edgier collection stamped with ink colors that easily blend with its other black and granite combos. Burberry’s metallic shearling leather coat in dark gray

Page 11

(that’s grey for the Brits) is a fashion standout. Take a cue from designers who played a shining role for winter – embellishing their clothes and accessories with metallic studs, silver link chains and crystal embroideries. Go a little exotic even when wearing basic black and gray. It’s the sparkling touches that will make all the difference in a gloomy mood. Charlotte Ronson adds lots and lots of art deco beading to brighten up her dresses and blouses.And the liquid gray column gowns and dresses from the Carolina Herrera and the Calvin Klein collections are the ultimate in lightening up a dreary party wardrobe. But if you’re a little tougher, then black leather is something you’ll want to add to your wardrobe.This ‘80s classic is making a big comeback in short jackets, retro blazers, skinny skirts and pants. In high gloss, it’s a bright spot on the dark horizon. And, if you're really brave, check out the black leather shorts from Miss Sixty’s collection.

If you’re a true-blue trend follower, you might think hard-core rock band, but if you’re not ready to go all out on your gray days, then only a little dab may be all you need. Stick to an embroidered velvet pump, a studded crystal cuff bracelet or a sparkling leather belt. Embracing the dark days of fashion also gives us a reason to rethink what clothes we already own. It also makes it even easier to shop in your own closet as almost everyone owns something either gray or black that can be pulled out and revitalized with a shot of some of the other brighter choices. Michael Kors is one designer who walks both on the dark and the bright side for fall with a collection filled with black satin trench coats, glossy black leather dresses, black feathered fox vests, charcoal overcoats and cigarette trousers as well as lots of black and white tweed. He pops the murky palette with vivid hits of neon pink, bright orange and acid yellow.And in these gray days, a burst of sunshine is always appreciated.

BEAUTY BUYS

T

he holiday season requires multi-tasking – buy presents, throw or go to parties and arrange travel plans while still working and maintaining a personal life.Whether you’re looking for a present for yourself or for someone else, a spa package is a gift that offers more than just a great deal; a few precious hours of pampering and peace of mind can make all the difference in getting through the hectic season. Consider offering the woman in your life – or yourself – a beauty deal that will save time, money or both yet also make her feel cared for.Taking time out for an afternoon at a spa can be a great way to rejuvenate while preparing for a big night out or just shoring up some tranquility against the days ahead. Also, consider the

many beauty kits offered as gifts during the season as a kind of portable spa. Another way in which to indulge holiday deals with practicality is to buy the woman in your life a prepackaged set of beauty products. Sephora, found throughout the United States, offers several boxed kits listed as “packed” with their best-sellers and biggest obsessions, all of which were hand-picked “by Sephora’s resident beauty buffs. All less than $40, the kits are perfect for travel, as each item included is less than 3 ounces. According to a consultant in Sephora’s store in New York’s Times Square, the “Splashstash Waterproof Deluxe Sampler” is always a good choice; no matter when or where a woman is traveling, having water-

proof essentials available is always handy. Another recommended kit from Sephora is the “Bare Escentuals Get Started Kit.” For a fraction ($60) of the full retail price for each product, customers receive two foundation powders, blush, a primer, a setting powder and several makeup brushes. Customers can choose kits to match their skin tones and learn application techniques through the DVD included. Benefit, a spunky cosmetics company based in San Francisco, also offers several multi-tasking beauty kits for the woman who’s on the go. Benefit’s “Smokin’ Eyes” kit is easy to drop into a purse or stash in a travel bag and offers several eye shadows, eyeliner, primer and a few beauty tools. “Brows A-Go-Go” lets busy women tame their brows into submission anywhere, with several brushes, a small pair of tweezers and complimentary shades. Or try “Rush Hour” – a good-for-all-skin-tones cream, lipstick, blush and even eye shadow that can do double duty – or more – just like most women during the holiday season.

BUILDING THE BOND

Share Pets need to be meaningful considered in moments improvements and décor with your grandchildren

H

olding the baby might be the first joy you experience as a new grandparent, but the real fun comes later as children grow and the bond between you deepens.The question is how to turn the time you spend together into a meaningful relationship, and the experts say it's easier than you might think. It’s about spending time and following the child's lead. Ask him what he wants to do and then follow along. His parents are probably too busy to do this with him. Fay said his toddler grandson’s favorite pastime when he comes to visit is to push a lightweight vacuum cleaner around the rugs, which earns his grandparents praise and gives him a sense of making a contribution. The key is shared experiences, but they can be simple. It’s important to consider age, personality, interests, attention span, abilities and skills. For young children, a visit to a boat dock or a fish market or a walk around the block can fill the bill. Don’t plan an arts and crafts activity that might be beyond their developmental skills. They’ll just get frustrated and you won’t make a good memory. It’s also important to choose an activity you’ll both enjoy. Think about it from the child’s point of view: You might love the natural history museum, but the child might be bored. But make sure it’s fun for you, too.Try to find a middle point – a musical group you’ll both enjoy or a video game you both like to play.

Add music – listening, singing, dancing or making up songs – to whatever else you’re doing.And she said very often the best entertainment is right beneath your nose. Look around at the things you take for granted in your environment that will be a treasure-trove for your grandchildren Think seasonal. Holidays are great excuses for craft activities, parties or educational outings to find out more about the occasion. Do chores together as a great way to spark conversation with older children. Work on your car and ask them to help out.They can learn about tools, and you’ll be able to talk about all kinds of things that might be uncomfortable in a face-to-face situation. Cards, chess and other board games are also good conversation-starters. Fix a meal together. Even little kids can help make macaroni and cheese, and they feel great about it. As children get older, teach them about your interests – bowling, tennis, gardening or other hobbies.And ask them what they can teach you about computers, iPods and cell phones. Teaching each other is magic. Both experts mentioned volunteering together. Take a volunteer vacation or work with Habitat for Humanity. This instills character and values as it creates a bonding experience. But how do you stay connected with grandchildren who live far away?

Electronics such as text messaging are going to help. A connection doesn’t have to be long to be meaningful.An e-mail can be as simple as ‘I love you. I’m thinking about you. I hope you’re having a great day. A Web camera and Skype account are another way to keep in touch. Send cards or letters in which you tell the kids about yourself. Adults often just ask them questions, and they feel interrogated. Goyer said to capitalize on the time you do have together. Involve the children in planning a visit, and make a scrapbook of your adventures.When the child goes home, make color copies to send so that you can rehash what you did over the phone or in e-mails and keep the memories alive. Still wondering about what to do when the grandkids come to visit? Here are some more possibilities: Create an African safari with stuffed animals. Put together a train set and build a village. Paint on the windows with washable markers made specifically for glass. • Stage a scavenger or treasure hunt. • On a rainy day, have an indoor picnic. • Make up stories with the child as the main character.You start, and then let him or her finish. • Decorate a pillowcase with fabric markers. • Interview each other with a video camera. • Have a tea party with hot cider, finger sandwiches and cookies. Use the good china. • Camp out overnight in the family room.

MAKE ROOM FOR PUPPY

Pets need to be considered in improvements and décor

A

ny home-design decisions, whether while building a new home or improving an existing one, need to be thought out carefully.That means taking into consideration the needs of every member of the family – including your pets. It is possible for humans to share a home with one or more four-legged friends without it turning into a zoo.The goal is to make an environment that is safe and comfortable for your cat or dog while protecting any property from getting smashed or shredded.Any homeowner with animals who doesn’t prepare their home properly is asking for trouble. A good approach is to pet-proof your home as if you were childproofing it. Consider the world from their vantage point. Take an inventory of all the indoor plants and make sure that none of them are toxic to animals. Consult a veterinarian if you have any doubts. Anything that is within reach of a dog and its tail should be moved to higher ground. Dogs see the world as their chew toy, so any exposed electrical wires need to be secured. Drapes that have loose, dangling fabric won’t last long with a cat around, and, no matter how tall it is, all pieces of furniture can be scaled by your beloved feline. So don't think that family-heirloom vase on the top shelf of a bookcase is safe. It's not. The furniture isn’t safe either, even if

16

you're successful in keeping your critters from claiming them as their own. Fur will find a way onto couches and chairs regardless if a pet climbs up on them. One way to camouflage it is to buy furniture that matches the color of your furry friend’s fur. If buying new furniture isn't an option, an alternative is to get tailored slip covers made from a cleanable fabric, particularly if your dog or cat is allowed to lounge on the couch.White is an ideal color, surprisingly, since you can always bleach it if the pet has an accident or jumps on it with muddy paws. One type of fabric that should be avoided in upholstered furniture is microfiber ultrasuede. It is very smooth, comfortable and looks great, but is also a nightmare if there are animals around. It acts like a magnet for pet hair. You might as well use it for a pet brush, because it sticks right to it. A fabric similar to suede that is much easier to clean is leather because it’s a natural material -- unless you put a bunch of finishes on it. It’s easy to clean and it’s OK if it gets kind of weathered, because you want that look in a lot of leathers. When your cat or dog isn’t on the

furniture or outside, they’ll likely be found lounging on the floor.And wherever they go, fur is sure to follow. Hard-surface floors are easier to clean than carpets, especially if your pet is still going through potty training and prone to accidents. Spray cleaning a hard floor is a much easier job than scrubbing a thick carpet.And when fur builds up on a hard floor, a dry Swiffer will pick it up very easily, as will a vacuum. Most homes have at least one room with wall-to-wall carpet. Pet owners should consider a material that has a pattern that will hide dirt or stains rather than a solid color.White is completely off-limits. Since both dogs and cats spend a lot of time sleeping on the carpet, inhaling any fumes it may be emitting, the material is an important factor. Carpets made from natural fibers will give off far less toxins than those made from nylon. "Wool is much more stain resistant and water resistant than people think. It's a natural fiber, so you don't have toxins that come into the air," Pollak said. "It's a much more expensive alternative than fiber, but if you can afford it, I love wool."

WATER SAVER

How do you save water in your home

A

re your water bills rising out of control? Are you interested in conserving water to help the environment but just aren't sure what to do? The amount of water most people go through in their homes on a daily basis is substantial.According to the American Water Works Association, an international nonprofit dedicated to safe and sustainable water, a typical single-family home uses 350 gallons of water per day indoors and outdoors. At least 69.3 gallons are used indoors alone.

18

?

Most people use more water than they need and few simple changes in your lifestyle can result in some dramatic savings in terms of water use and in how much you pay for your water bills. There are easy and inexpensive ways to save water that won’t dry up your bank account or take up lots of time. It helps to start out small and to do lots of research on any products before buying them. Cherry-pick the savings. Do the easiest and cheapest things first.You can save 30 to

35 percent of water in the home with little investment. Starting with the bathroom, the biggest water guzzler of them all, here are some ideas to try first: Check toilets, faucets and pipes for leaks. Even small drips can waste 20 or more gallons a day, while larger leaks may waste hundreds. Put a little food coloring in the toilet tank. If, without flushing, the color begins to appear in the bowl, there’s a leak continued on page 19

continued from page 18

that should be repaired immediately.To get an idea of how much water you could be losing from leaks, check out the leak with adrip calculator. Stop using the toilet as a wastebasket. Every time small bits of trash are flushed, five to seven gallons of water are wasted. Put plastic bottles in the toilet tank. Put an inch or two of sand or pebbles into two plastic soda bottles to weigh them down. Fill them with water, and put them in the toilet tank away from the operating mechanisms. The bottles displace water and may save 10 or more gallons of water a day in an average home. Take shorter showers. Long showers can waste five to 10 gallons every unneeded minute. Install water-saving shower heads or flow restrictors.They are very easy to install, but read all of the fine print on the packaging. Some low-flow faucets aren’t really low-flow. They should use 1.5 gallons per minute or less, and some use more. There

Page 19

isn’t a difference in pressure in the low-flow shower heads, so the shower experience can be the same or better than otherwise. Take baths.A bath in a partially filled tub uses less water than all but the shortest showers. Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. Keep a glass of water for mouth rinsing. Otherwise, theres no reason to keep the water going. Rinse shaving razors in the sink. Fill the sink with a few inches of warm water instead of rinsing with running water. There are easy things to do to save water in other water-waster areas in the house, too, such as in the kitchen and laundry: Use the automatic dishwasher and washing machines only for full loads. This reduces the number of uses. Wash dishes by hand. Don’t leave the water running for rinsing. Fill the sink with soapy water for cleaning. Fill the other basin with water for rinsing. If there's only one basin, fill a pan full of hot water for rinsing. Don’t let the faucet run while cleaning

vegetables. Rinse them in a pan of clean water instead. Check the faucet and pipes for leaks: As with the bathroom, leaks waste water all day, every day. If you have a yard, make sure to do some research for the best ways to save water outside for the appropriate climate of the area.According to the AWWA, on average, 50 to 70 percent of home water is used for watering lawns and gardens. Pay attention to the weather to avoid unnecessary watering or water loss caused by the wind. Don’t water the pavement when a broom suffices. It's also best to water in the morning to prevent fungus and losing water from evaporation. Different types of grass and vegetation and using mulch are also things to consider for conservation landscaping. Taking small steps in water conservation isn't hard. Eventually, we don’t notice we’re using less. Make a conscious effort to do it, and over a period of time, it becomes a habit.

Get back on wheels for environmental benefits

D

o you want to get fit, save the environment and feel like a kid again? It may be as simple as going from four wheels to two. Biking is a great way to get exercise while saving the environment.Whether you’re going to work, the grocery or just out of the house, a bicycle can be a wonderful alternative. And there is a pair of wheels for everyone, no matter how old. Bicycles aren’t going away, and we’re going to see their usage increase as time goes on. De Leon says he has seen a lot of encouragement for bike riding. Cities are investing in new infrastructures to encourage people to ride bikes, and universities are trying to reduce the numbers of cars on their campuses. Some even are offering free bicycles to those who don’t bring their cars to campus. It is a trend that has been popular for a long time in Europe, and now it's coming stateside once more. Culture finally is grasping onto this more than a century-old technology of bicycles. Whether you never have rode a bike or want to get back on, there are many choices available to make your shift back to biking a fun one and selecting the right bike an easy process. First, decide what you are going to do with your bike and what you need it to do. Are you going to take back roads or stick to city streets? Will you be going up and down hills? How far will you be riding it? Factoring

in usage will help you determine what type of bike you're looking for. You can research online or visit your local bike shop to see what types of bikes are available. If you are visiting a bike shop, talk to one of the employees.The employees will be well-versed in all the different types of bicycles and will make recommendations based on what you need your bicycle to do, from what type of material you should have your bike made out of to whether a women’s bike is right for your body type. If you want to get your bike on sale at a shop, usually the fall is a safe bet, according to Bicycling magazine. As the riding season ends, new models of bicycles will be introduced, and the older models will be discounted. Last year’s bikes most likely will be as good as the new bikes they are introducing – as long as there are no dramatic redesigns for a particular model. Wearing a helmet may be the law in many states for people younger than 18, but for adults riding a bike, it's a good idea to wear one, too. It protects your head while biking, especially if you take a nasty fall. Also, if you plan to ride at night, you may want to consider

reflective strips for your clothing and a light for your bicycle. Depending on what type of biking you plan to do, there is other protective gear, such as gloves for blistering and special clothes to wear during biking trips. There are plenty of accessories available for your bike beyond the bell and frilly basket from when you were a kid. Packs that fit over the back wheel are perfect for when you want to carry groceries home, and there are trailers that you can attach to pull younger kids along with you for a bike ride. For the kids who are old enough to ride themselves, there are plenty of bikes for them, and you will be able to join them on weekend bike rides and other family outings. It will help establish the habit while they’re young, and your children can do it for as long as they want. It’s truly an activity that can be done for your entire life.

COOKING UP A DISTRACTION

Keep your guests occupied while you’re in the kitchen T

he smell of freshly roasted turkey still wafts through the kitchen as you carefully pipe a line of mashed potatoes around the edge of the green bean and mushroom casserole.The glazed carrots shimmer in a buttery sauce, anticipating a dusting of fresh parsley, and a bowl of whole cranberries – cooked and chilled to perfection – awaits a wreath of wafer-thin orange slices. It’s fun to add those last-minute personal touches to what you’ve prepared for Christmas dinner. But if you don’t want help or to be interrupted as you go about completing your culinary masterpieces, experts say you should plan some activities in advance to keep your guests occupied and out of the kitchen until dinner is served. Playing guessing games is one way. “Guess What I’m Thinking” is a simple talking/connecting game, one that adults and children can play together. Someone in the group starts by saying, “I’m thinking of my favorite food (or color or animal or sport). Who can guess what I’m thinking?” Then each person takes a turn guessing. Whoever gets it right becomes the ‘Guess What I’m Thinking’ leader in the next round. This game engages everyone and

also helps people learn more about one another. Children love simple guessing games, but it’s also fun for adults. If it’s only adults playing, you can broaden the topics to a favorite movie, band or book and give the genre as a hint. Lots of other games also can make for suitable pre-dinner diversions, including holiday trivia contests, doing Christmas jigsaw puzzles and playing Christmas card games. Holiday DVDs and Blu-ray discs and seasonal television programs are also good choices. If the weather cooperates, your guests may want to arrive a bit early and go caroling around the neighborhood before sitting down to eat. If your guests will include children or adults with disabilities, do some research before the gathering. Don’t be afraid to ask about food allergies or preparation, seating and activities that might be too noisy or overstimulating. Questions will be appreciated by the family, but you will need to be “sensitive and tactful.” Before asking questions, let your guests know that you want them to be a part of the holiday gathering and that you want to know what is most comfortable for them and their family, Barkin says. Planning ahead of time is key.

You can keep guests from being underfoot in the kitchen by appealing to their stomachs. A chocolate fountain set up on the living room console could be a pre-dinner crowd pleaser, as will some light and fresh appetizers, such as grilled shrimp that’s accompanied by a ponzu marinade.“This can be grilled and then served cold or at room temperature. Also a cheese platter, one “with little signs that turn people on to various new cheeses” that also includes fresh fruits – such as apples, Concord grapes and Asian pears. Make the appetizer table beautiful by sticking to a limited color palette.This will really make a statement.You can also add interest by displaying your food at different heights.But whatever you do, don’t overdo. Serving too many appetizers beforehand could spoil Christmas dinner, traditionally a large meal.You actually want people to be a bit hungry. What if your guests insist on helping with those final touches? Get them to help set the table, fold napkins, put on music, pour the wine, get the water glasses full with ice, and get out serving utensils. If all else fails, put a drink in t heir hands, and tell them to RELAX because you have it under control. Anaheim Hills Look

BRUNCH TIME

hristmas morning solutions

et’s face it. On Christmas morning, most of us are thinking of one thing; we can’t wait to see what Santa put in our stockings and under the tree. But we’re also usually famished and can’t wait to see what Mama Claus has cooked up in the kitchen, either. However, Mrs. Santa usually has her mind on other things come Christmas morning. So here are some easy ways to satisfy those early risers and still have time to enjoy those special holiday moments with your friends and family. First of all, setting up a buffet for brunch is one of the best things you can do on Christmas Day when you don’t know

whether Aunt Sally may sleep in or your 3-year-old niece will be running up and down the halls at the crack of dawn. In other words, it’s best just to set up a breakfast “bar” in the kitchen and let everyone help themselves whenever they feel like it. There’s always the microwave to warm up a late-morning snack. Brunch is a tradition at many homes because often parents and grandparents live nearby and arrive before noon, giving families plenty of time to open their own presents and spend some time getting ready for the rest of the day. Brunch menus have changed through the years, but there are some definite long time favorites. Start with a “percolator” punch brewing in a 40-cup Farberware coffeepot. All the ingredients can go in the night before –

1 part pineapple juice, 2 parts cranberry juice and apple juice, with plenty of brown sugar and spices in the coffee basket – and that cinnamon-clove “Christmas” smell is “percolating” through the house even when the mice are not stirring yet.The fixings for Bloody Marys and mimosas are always nice to have for “do-it-yourselfers.” Then, always have a special casserole that can be prepared the night before or frozen.The sausage-egg casserole is a traditional brunch favorite, but here is a great recipe for a blueberry French toast casserole that is even better. Specialty stores also have many different kinds of bite-sized quiches that are available. Another favorite: a big bowl brimming with fresh fruit that is easy to assemble.

and empty it into a festive cut-crystal bowl. Add a smaller bowl of vanilla yogurt sprinkled with cinnamon and you’ve got instant Christmas. Also, don’t hesitate to serve storebought baked goodies for a Christmas Day brunch – or at any other time during the hectic holidays.We all may have special favorites that only Grandma can make, but this is not a time to be cooped up in the kitchen when everyone else is hitting the eggnog. a great go-to place is WilliamsSonoma for all kinds of pre-prepared treats, especially for holiday brunches. Oprah Winfrey made their handmade croissants famous when she featured them on one of her “Favorite Things” shows, and because they are shipped overnight, you can be guaranteed of their freshness.You also can check out your local bakeries and specialty shops for more pre-made treats to either freeze or buy fresh the day before. There are lots of muffins, coffeecakes, strudels and scones that you can pick up to have on hand for a holiday breakfast.

Try to order a special Southern-baked ham from a local barbecue place that is famous for its sugary, bourbon-soaked meats that are spiral-cut and ready to serve.You can either heat this up Christmas morning or enjoy it straight from the refrigerator for days in sandwiches. Place a grainy country mustard in a side dish, and serve the ham slices with bakery rolls. For smaller crowds, substitute store-bought sausage-cheese bites heated up in the oven with the casserole. Or simply wrap cocktail “smokies” with crescent rolls and bake for a quick treat. You easily can make holiday sweetbreads ahead of time, too.There are lots of packaged mixes available that make whipping these up for the freezer fast and easy. One of my favorite ways to dress up a store-bought pumpkin bread mix is to add a cup of mini chocolate chips to the recipe before it goes into the oven.These loaves make great holiday presents, too. Just wrap them up in festive holiday cellophane, and tie them up with curly ribbon.

SPICE IT UP

Classic Christmas dinners get modern makeovers T

red of humdrum ham and traditional turkey? Spice it up this season with international flavors that add a kick to Christmas dinner. People have been leaning toward bigger and bolder flavors – more spice, more aromatics, more nuances. Both turkey and ham are very adaptable to almost any style, from American or Asian to Latin or Indian, so being creative with them is very easy. For approachable entrees that pack punches, look to Indian and Latin flavors, and don’t be afraid to add a little heat. Latin and Indian cooking have seen a great surge in popularity in all levels of dining, from street foods to white-tablecloth restaurants. While it is sometimes comforting to have the same meal once a year, every year, even the most sentimental will appreciate a perked-up and exciting new

holiday table. Take a walk on the wild side. Use Indian curry as a flavor rub, or treat your taste buds to a cumin and ancho chili blend. It’s an easy way to give a traditional dish a modern makeover. Buck convention and think Caribbean. Look to coconut and saffron to spice up a seafood feast of shrimp, crab, scallops and fish in lieu of conventional Christmas fare. Want to use what's on hand? For those with a penchant for a little heat,Tabasco pepper sauce and Dijon mustard add a quick kick to ham. For a truly exotic experience, try a dynamic Oaxacan-inspired cocoa and chili turkey rub. It showcases the dark, deep, savory side of chocolate we rarely get to taste.When blended with spices such as cumin and dried chilies, the chocolate adds a profound dimension of depth and richness.

COCOA CHILI RUB FOR ROAST TURKEY 1/2 cup olive oil 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/4 cup ancho chili powder 2 tablespoons fresh toasted cumin seed, ground 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon ground black pepper 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper Preheat oven to 325 F. Remove gizzards and neck from a 14- to 16-pound turkey. Rinse turkey with cold water. Pat dry. Combine rub ingredients in a small bowl. Spread evenly over and inside the entire turkey. Truss turkey. Place in roasting pan. Cover with foil. Roast turkey for about 3 1/2 hours, to an internal temperature of 175 F, basting every 20 minutes. continued on page 29

Remove foil. Roast at 400 F, basting every 15 minutes, until skin is deep golden brown. Remove from oven. Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes before carving.

oil until al dente, and then drain. Cook scallops, snow crab claws and fish in a saucepan for approximately 5 minutes. Place a portion of pasta in the middle of a soup bowl.Arrange the seafood around pasta.Add broccoli and cherry tomatoes. Pour sauce over the pasta and seafood. ROAST HAM WITH SPICY CRUMB TOPPING Servings: 14 1 pork leg half, shank portion (about 7 pounds with bone) 10 cloves garlic 1/2 cup freshly chopped parsley 1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon original Tabasco pepper sauce (for the topping) 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons pan drippings 2 tablespoons flour 1/4 teaspoon original Tabasco pepper

sauce (for the gravy) 2 cups water Prepare crumb topping by combining parsley, breadcrumbs, mustard,Tabasco sauce, thyme and salt in medium bowl until well-blended. Set aside. Preheat oven to 325 F. Place pork in large roasting pan. Insert garlic cloves into meat with small sharp knife, about 2 inches apart and 2 inches deep. Press crumb mixture onto outside of roast. Cook meat about 3 1/2 hours. Roast 32 to 35 minutes per pound, or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest part (not touching the bone) registers 160 F. Cover meat loosely with foil when crumbs are golden brown. Remove to cutting board. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing. To prepare pan gravy, drain off all but 2 tablespoons fat from the pan drippings. Sprinkle with flour and Tabasco sauce. Whisk over medium-high heat until smooth, scraping browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Gradually whisk in water until blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5 minutes until thickened, stirring frequently.

as beautiful as you can possibly be. After finding your dream bridal gown, you want to choose the correct undergarments to make sure your dress looks pictureperfect. Shopping for the pieces you’ll need is very different from the typical trip to a continued on page 33

lingerie store, as you are building a foundation for your gown. Highly embellished, voluminous or heavier gowns require a more supportive base to carry the dress. Since wedding gowns can be quite heavy, bridal lingerie is built to support your form beneath the weight of the gown. It’s constructed to shape and slim your body and features strategic boning, seaming and enhancement that everyday lingerie lacks. The bra is the most essential piece. For a heavy gown, a long-line structured bra is your best bet.A bandeau style that will work well with halter top or strapless dresses is also budget-friendly, as it will work well under special-occasion dresses or business attire when the wedding is just a happy memory. Brides have specific and challenging needs.There’s not as much lace embellish ment as there used to be, and dresses are more form-fitting, streamlined and made of body-hugging stretch fabrics.The bride needs smooth underpinnings to make sure

everything fits neatly beneath the wedding gown. She needs invisibility.Strapless and halter top gowns that are popular now require special attention. Without the dimensional stability of straps, cups can splay east and west.You want to uplift and center her bustline within her body frame. If the rest of your figure isn’t perfect – and whose is? – a torsolette, merry widow or bustier can provide supportive boning to smooth a larger midsection all the way down to the hips and accentuate the bust. Spandex shapewear helps mold curves, minimize problem areas and create a graceful silhouette – ideal if you’ve chosen a trumpet- or mermaid-style gown that requires a seamless look underneath. Invest in a good pair of pantyhose that will help slim and shape your bottom and be sturdy enough to last through a night of dancing. The right garments are uplifting and promote good posture and make you feel taller and thinner. If your dress has a full skirt, a slip will be another consideration. Styles are available

to complement and contribute volume for every design from slightly flared to ball-gown bouffant. Look for petticoats fitted with a band to minimize the midsection. Those that can be adjusted for slits in the front, back or sides of your gown. Experts advise scheduling a fitting for lingerie as soon as you have selected the dress. Bring it with you. Comfort and confidence are of utmost importance. If anything bunches, scratches or pinches, this will give you time to have it repaired or make another choice. You don’t want to be uncomfortable and fidgety on your wedding day. While you’re there, pick up the traditional garter. Buy two -- one to toss at the reception and one to keep. And don’t forget your attendants. Have an event where you can bring in your entire bridal party to be fitted while they sip on champagne and munch on cake. There are all shapes and sizes in a wedding party and this is a way to make everyone feel special, beautiful and proportionate.

FLOORED ON FLOORS

Fall in love with new colors, patterns and materials W

hen the time comes to remodel a room, few projects will have the impact that replacing the floor can achieve. By changing the color, pattern or material, the room transforms into something completely new and fresh.You’ll fall in love with your house all over again -- if you do it right. Some rooms need thoughtful consideration before you replace any surfaces.We commonly subject our kitchen floors to quite a beating. Not only is it a high-traffic

area, but it also has to endure the occasional glass, plate, knife or even frying pan being dropped on it, not to mention various food and drink raining down. A busy kitchen will take its toll on a floor over the years. In many homes it’s a main focal point, so having a tired-looking surface can detract from a home's beauty, not to mention its value. When the time comes for your replacement, you’ll have a lot of innovative new

materials to choose from. Stone will have an upscale flair, but it’s not the ideal choice for the kitchen.Any dropped plate or glass will shatter to every corner of the room. It’s also hard on the feet and unforgiving when a child takes a spill. Eye-pleasing alternatives with a little spring to their step include bamboo, cork and a new material called corboo, a mixture of cork and bamboo unveiled by US Floors continued on page 37

continued from page 36 at a trade show in Las Vegas in February. Also vinyl has come a long way. It has a light bounce to it, yet it has the look of tile, and if you get down on the floor it has the feel of the real thing. And it’s a floatable-type floor, meaning it doesn’t require a glue down. It can be clicked in place. It even has the appearance of grout lines without really having grout. Hard surfaces aren’t only found in the kitchen – they can be just about anywhere. An eco-friendly material suitable for a family room, exercise room or finished basement is leather, recycled from things like old car

seats, wallets and purses.They're ground up and applied to a backing material, usually cork. It has a pattern to it that looks like real leather. It’s relatively durable and cleans with a damp cloth. Overharvesting of exotic hardwood from tropical rainforests has made certain types of wood unavailable.The race is on among companies developing methods to make sustainable wood from North America look like it came from trees like Brazilian cherry. Anderson Hardwood Floors has developed a line called Exotic Impressions that uses a natural process that mimics endangered hardwood with impressive results. The carpet industry has also gotten into the green game, rolling out new lines that are made from recycled plastic water bottles and even corn. SmartStrand by Mohawk Flooring is made from liquefied corn that is hardened into carpet fibers, instead of the traditional nylon fiber. Whether or not you’re into going green, Davis recommended that homeowners take

the time to consider their lifestyle before they make any flooring decisions. A family with young children and pets living in a house with a gravel driveway tucked into the woods will track in dirt and other things no matter how hard they try not to.They should look into flooring, whether it’s carpet or a hard surface, that is more durable and comes with a strong, 20-year warranty. Choosing a pattern instead of a solid color will help make tracked-in dirt less noticeable.After all, who wants to clean the floor 10 times a day? On the flip side, an empty-nester couple that sees much lighter traffic in their home can look for something more ornamental rather than a bullet-proof material with a warranty that will outlive them. Those are the kind of issues that are really important to talk about when you’re buying flooring so somebody can steer you in the right direction.

INVESTING WITH CONFIDENCE

What can you risk? T

he recent roller-coaster ride of the stock market has left many investors stunned and aching, with many wondering whether it's safe to “get back in the water� of investing. After all, a lot of money has been lost in the plummet of many sectors, as you probably have heard on the news. Every day. But while the negativity cloud still sits upon us, an interesting thing is happening: The global stock markets are experiencing

Anaheim Hills Look

upswings, and many market forecasters report that not only is the economy getting better but also the recession is very close to being over. Led by gains in Asia and other markets, gross domestic products have stabilized, and equity markets are gaining; investor confidence is returning. Depending on your confidence level, it very well could be time to get back in the water. Or dive in for the first time.

Some top-name funds boast higherthan-average gains right now, and investors are looking again at where to entrust their money, which begs the question: Do you wish to get on at a high-risk level or at a low-risk one? The biggest lesson learned in this stomach-churning financial era is that you need to have a trustworthy adviser. continued on page 39

markets in modern history, but as history has shown, bull markets always follow bear markets.The advice that continues to expound, no matter where the economy is headed or what the stock market has done recently, is that investors need to focus on their financial goals before they make any investment decision. All too often, investors make the wrong decisions because they trusted their advisers.The fact is that most advisers are paid on commission, which continues to be the biggest risk investors unknowingly face. Don’t trust your adviser; question him. Ask the following questions: Give me three reasons why this investment makes sense. How does this investment fit into my overall strategy? At what point will we sell this investment? What are your fees, your compensation and your expenses associated with this? What should I consider besides this investment?

Page 14

Meet with fee-only or hourly financial planners who can do the heavy lifting and serve in a fiduciary role with no conflicts of interest. These advisers can look at your full financial picture – your age, cost of living, retirement goals and true risk tolerance in an unpredictable market – and advise from a place of authority. If you're saving for a goal that is more than five years out -- such as retirement or college – it makes sense to invest more of your savings in stocks because they offer potentially greater returns over time. However, looking at the volatility of the 2007 and 2008 markets, where losses were great, it makes sense to diversify in highand low-risk categories. It makes sense to offset risks by adding in some bonds and some cash so that if the market goes down again, you won’t lose that much. If you’ve got a time horizon of less than five years and are nervous about the market and risk-averse, put a high percentage of your savings in bonds and cash.You won’t gain as much, but you’ll have more peace of mind.

Certificates of deposit count in this category, even though CD interest rates are pretty low.“Still, there is nothing safer than certificates of deposit, savings accounts or money market accounts at a government-insured bank, savings and loan or credit union. Just realize that you have to save money to make up the difference of not having higher returns from stocks. If you can take more risks, devote a higher percentage of your investment money to equities, and consider emerging and international markets.To be a smart investor, you must provide your own education on the world economy and the future of investments.What’s hot in the news right now is old news, and investors who will make money in those markets invested a long time ago. So think ahead; subscribe to financial magazines, such as Worth and SmartMoney, and invest the time to find a top-quality, experienced financial consultant who sees you as a person with goals, not just a number on a quota sheet.
