Hitchcock Fridays Film Festival Classic Hitchcock of the 1940s and 1950s

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock was an English Film director and producer. He pioneered many techniques in the suspense and psychological thriller genres. Hitchcock directed more than fifty feature films in a career spanning six decades and is often regarded as the greatest British filmmaker. The magazine MovieMaker has described him as the most influential filmmaker of all time, and he is widely regarded as one of cinema’s most significant artists. Through his cameo appearances in his own films, interviews, film trailers, and the television program Alfred Hitchcock Presents, he became a cultural icon. RESERVED SEATING FESTIVAL PREMIERE SCREENING Friday, July 19 1959 – Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint and James Mason. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards. A tense story of mistaken identity, an innocent man pursued across the United States by mysterious foreign agents who want to stop him interfering with their plans to smuggle out government secrets. The screenplay was written by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write “the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures.” This is one of several Hitchcock films with a music score by Bernard Herrmann and features a memorable opening title sequence by graphic designer Saul Bass. This film is generally cited as the first to feature extended use of kinetic typography in its opening credits.

“I wanted to sell some gold that I had found in my drawer. I didn’t want to get ripped off so I started asking around. The max offer I got from other places was $420 but I decided to check this place out since it is really close to my house. The man that helped us was very friendly, and didn’t make us feel awkward at all! He offered $534 for the gold, which was $115 more than the other offer! It is a very nice shop, very clean. The customer service is great, and you can’t beat their payouts” Celia P.

Fine time to dine

Raul Anguiano Old Spaghetti Factory

For Restaurant Week, chefs will dish up some special creations

Written by Luanne J. Hunt


here’s lots to love about downtown Riverside — especially its array of restaurants — and in late June, many of these fine establishments will be showcasing some of their most sumptuous cuisine during Restaurant Week. Sponsored by the Riverside Downtown Partnership, the event actually plays out over 11 days, from June 20-30, and encompasses two weekends. An event with the same name launched in 2008, but that edition was limited to the city’s fine-dining restaurants. This time, there are many more participants — 15 at last count. “We’re opening it up to casual places, too, so there’s something for everyone,” said Janice Penner, executive director of the Riverside Downtown Partnership. “There are a lot of great food choices here in our city.”

During Restaurant Week, a special item or a group of items will be served during lunch or dinner. Prices for these special selections will range from $5 to $20, Penner says. David Powell, who opened 9th Street Italian in November, says he is thrilled to be participating and plans to offer a lunch special — a grilled cheese and bacon sandwich with a side of eggplant fries — that is not currently on his restaurant’s menu.

“I’ve been wanting to serve this special for a while now and thought Restaurant Week would be the perfect time to do it,” he said. At Phood on Main, Chef Marla Cohen will be making a Brown Butter Shrimp Sandwich, with cooked shrimp, roasted shallots and fresh herbs on a hoagie roll. Mario’s Place, across the street from the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, is planning a couple of dishes: Saute’d Loch Etive Steelhead, with an “insalata” of roasted red and yellow bell peppers, lemon zest, Italian parsley, capers and sugar snap peas; and Calamari Fritti Salad, with wild arugula, little pear tomatoes, Peppadew chilis and lemon sauce. “These dishes radiate with the bright colors and flavors of the summer,” said Chef Leone Palagi. “They manage to have intense, pure flavors and to be light and fresh at the same time.” Besides the dining specials, there will be a pair of drawings for restaurant gift certificates. Entry forms will be available at the businesses participating in Restaurant Week.

Penner believes the event will be a winning proposition. “It increases awareness of a number of these restaurants — some of which are new — and it increases awareness of downtown Riverside as an entertainment district with a range of dining options.”

Forces for


Valuable contributions come from many quarters in the community, including the spouses of high-profile figures. Meet Riverside’s ‘better halves.’


| | june-july 2013

Written by Amy Bentley and Carla Sanders


y better half” — the phrase recalls TV’s “Mad Men,” a 1960s-era outlook of married couples’ relationships during a time when many women were opting to stay at home to raise the kids, while others who were in the workforce were filling lower-profile roles — still making important contributions, but not always getting the recognition they may have deserved. Fast forward to 2013, and times have changed. So has the meaning of the term. These days, it may refer to either spouse. We’ll take it to mean spouses who are reaching out and helping in their professions and/or their neighbors — all while inspiring their partners. So, while a doctor at Riverside Medical Clinic, the founding dean of UC Riverside’s School of Medicine, an attorney at Best Best & Krieger, the bishop at Cross Word Christian Church and the VP of the Riverside Unified School District board of education are all important figures in their realms, we believe their spouses deserve

just as much if not more attention for the work they do and the energy they put back into the community. Here are the stories behind five of Riverside’s “better halves.”

Jennifer Corr Jennifer Corr seems to have found the balance in her life that so many working mothers of young children seek. The mother of a 3-year-old daughter, Corr teaches part-time at Riverside City College and is active in several volunteer efforts benefiting Riverside residents, particularly children. Corr’s husband, Dr. Andrew Corr, and his father and late grandfather are all well-known in the local medical community. Andrew Corr is an internal medicine physician and chairman of the Adult Medicine Department at Riverside Medical Clinic. The clinic was co-founded by his grandfather, Dr. Philip Corr, in 1935. Andrew Corr’s father, the late William Corr, was an internal medicine physician as well. “She is very supportive of me, which is great. I know that when I have longer hours at work, she has to do more work at home. I love that she does all that volunteer work too. I admire what she does,” said Andrew Corr. Jennifer Corr, 41, is an accountant who worked for several years in finance, including as the chief financial officer for the Fresno Bee newspaper. When daughter Caroline was born, she switched to part-time work. The couple is expecting another baby girl in August. Corr likes to stay busy. She teaches basic and managerial accounting classes part-time at Riverside City College and volunteers to serve on the Altura Credit Union’s supervisory committee, which oversees the internal audit operations of the credit union in a watchdog role. In addition, Corr chairs the Junior Jackie Olds at the Main Street pedestrian mall Photo by GABRIEL LUIS ACOSTA

League of Riverside’s membership committee, and she is involved with a number of Junior League programs. One is Fit Riverside, for which the Junior League offers free Zumba classes at the Bobby Bonds Community Center, among other outreach efforts to promote fitness and healthy eating. Another passion is the Riverside public library system. Corr is on the board of directors and is treasurer of the nonprofit Riverside Public Library Foundation, which raises money for the city’s libraries. “It’s really nice to be back in the community that I spent my first years in, and for the first time in my life be able to invest myself in the community,” said Corr, who lived in Riverside as a small child before moving to Charleston. She moved back to Riverside four years ago. “I want my daughter to see me giving back to my community,” she said. “I want her to follow suit and to know that you need to volunteer. I feel so lucky to be able to do this.” — Amy Bentley

Jackie Olds Last fall’s inaugural Long Night of Arts & Innovation in downtown Riverside was, by all accounts, a tremendous

success. The event showcased the community’s talent in the arts, performing arts, science and technology, and culinary arts and sciences with more than 130 exciting exhibits and performances. A great deal of the acclaim for that spectacular evening can be laid at the feet of Jackie Olds, lead organizer for the event and active in numerous Riverside organizations. What’s remarkable about Olds is the fact that she only moved to the city three years ago, when her husband, G. Richard Olds, MD, joined UC Riverside as founding dean of the university’s new medical school, which will open in August. He also is vice chancellor for Health Affairs. “Riverside has been just so welcoming,” she said. “It really has a special feel about it. It is richly diverse and makes it easy for someone who comes in to get involved right away.” And that she has done, serving on the Founders Advisory Group for the UCR School of Medicine, the Fox Theater Foundation Board of Directors, and as a panelist for the Riverside Arts Council, among other endeavors. It’s a long way from her roots in Ohio as the oldest daughter and middle child

in a close-knit blue-collar family. She was the only female in her family to go to college — Kent State — which she put herself through by working two jobs at once — the first shift at a factory and then busing tables. She earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and psychology, followed by a master’s in family therapy from Northeastern University in Boston. Before marrying, she worked in Boston with juveniles and their families as a court advocate. In more than 30 years together, she and her husband have traveled extensively overseas and lived in Rhode Island, Ohio and Wisconsin. They have three grown sons. “Family defines me,” she said. “It was important for me to be with and raise my kids.” After 10 years in Wisconsin, where Richard Olds was chair of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Riverside beckoned. “It was the perfect time in our life

to take on something like that,” she said of the new medical school at UCR. Despite being new to Riverside, Olds has many fans throughout the city, with her husband being perhaps the biggest. “In only three years since we moved to Riverside, Jackie has become deeply involved in community initiatives, especially in downtown Riverside,” he said. “In fact, she is so involved there, that I often joke that in the downtown area I am known as ‘Mr. Jackie Olds.’ “Because UCR’s medical school is a community-based effort, she is also an invaluable partner with me in fundraising and building partnerships that ultimately will benefit the entire community. I simply could not be doing this without her.” — Carla Sanders

Matthew Schiller Riverside residents may have heard of Matthew Schiller’s wife, Charity B. Schiller, an environmental attorney and

partner with the mega-law firm Best Best & Krieger, but her husband is equally successful in his teaching career. Matthew Schiller, 35, a chemistry teacher at Poly High School, was named Secondary Teacher of the Year in 20102011 for the Riverside Unified School District. He also was one of 50 teachers from 12 different countries to earn a 2012 Yale Educator Award, which recognizes educators worldwide who support and inspire students to achieve excellence. A former student of Schiller’s who now goes to Yale, 2012 Poly graduate Jeffrey Guo, made the nomination. Schiller has taught at Poly for nine years and has a record of success that most teachers would envy. The Advanced Placement test pass rate for his AP chemistry students is 90 percent, much higher than the national average of 56 percent. He also has coached Poly’s awardwinning Mock Trial team for all nine

years, spending countless hours — up to 25 a week — for a tiny stipend to help the students learn about the legal system and prepare for the annual competition. During the summers, he stays busy teaching chemistry for UC Riverside’s Fast Start program, helping low-income students interested in a medical career get a leg up on their early years of college. An avid cyclist, Schiller has served on the city’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, and he is the founder and faculty liaison for Poly’s photography club. The club holds an annual exhibit in an art gallery downtown. (This year it’s on June 6 at the Riverside Art Museum.) “I enjoy doing all the stuff I do outside of teaching. I love doing photography, which is why I started the photo club,” he said. Fellow Poly alumni — Schiller graduated from Poly in 1995 — help him coach Mock Trial, which makes it more fun for Schiller.

“Matthew really is my better half,” said Charity, his wife of nearly 10 years. “He is an excellent role model for his students, and he really inspires young people to be involved in the community and to reach out and do good things for the city of Riverside. He does so many different things.” — Amy Bentley

Karen Sykes Karen Sykes loves God. But unlike some people who put that sentiment on a bumper sticker, she shares her joy from the pulpit at Cross Word Christian Church in Riverside, where she is an associate pastor. Her husband, Lacy K. Sykes Jr., founded the church in 2000, and he is the bishop, senior pastor, and a teacher. “My hope is that I would be a light that would draw others to Christ,” Karen Sykes said of her decision 10 years ago to transform from being a traditional pastor’s wife and

mother to help lead a congregation of more than 2,500. “I knew I needed to do more.” Since then, she takes the pulpit a half-dozen times each year to deliver sermons, is a sought-after public speaker and has become involved with mission trips, including one to Ghana, where she and others worked in a hospital and she was able to go into the high school and teach young girls. “We spoke and talked about the fact that they matter. Some of the girls had been raped, but I wanted them to know that regardless of that, you have value. I wanted them say, ‘I matter. I count.’ ” She also has been to Sierra Leone, and another trip is planned to Nigeria. Sykes grew up in Santa Ana after four years in North Carolina, and is the daughter of career military man. “My parents weren’t super religious, but they did have faith. We enjoyed going to church,” she said, noting that she accepted Christ into her life june-july 2013 | | 17

at age 12. Her full conversion came at age 29. She and Bishop Sykes were married in 1986 and moved to the Inland Empire in 1987. They have five adult children and one grandson. During the week, Sykes also serves as church administrator, running the office staff, and heads up a women’s Bible study group. Her husband calls her a “tremendous support to me in the ministry. She is an extremely compas-sionate person and is very gifted and talented.” Sykes said her role as associate pastor has strengthened the bond between the couple, and she has “gained an even greater respect for what he does and all he has to take on.” Both said there is a balance in keeping their personal life separate from the professional ministry. “I approach that balance with humility,” Sykes said. “God gave him the vision for Cross Word Christian Church.” — Carla Sanders 18

Sally Beaty Sally Beaty likes to get her hands dirty. Not one to sit back and watch, Beaty enjoys diving in up to her elbows in any number of civic and philanthropic endeavors, from working with the Master Gardener program to explaining to others the magic and mysteries of the city’s treasured Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. It’s all part of the immense enthusiasm and affection she feels for the city that has been her home since 1976. That’s when she and her husband, Chuck, arrived as he became principal at John W. North High School. Since then, he has served as a city councilman, school board member and board president and has been on the boards of numerous city organizations. In her own way, Beaty has been similarly involved, expanding her involvement from serving as a docent at the Mission Inn to becoming president of the inn’s docent council and earning her stripes with the Master

Gardener program offered through University of California Cooperative Extension. “I am my dad’s daughter,” she explains. “He always had to have land. I could be in the garden full time.” She is able to cultivate her own love of “digging and growing” on the acre of land where her home sits near Mt. Rubidoux, tending to more than 100 rose bushes, plus citrus, avocado, apricot, peach, plum and nectarine trees in a lush landscape. Her philanthropic involvement, which totals about 30 to 40 hours per month, is, as she puts it, her third life. The first was raising her six children (she now has 15 grandchildren) and supporting her husband, and the second was a career in educational TV, producing programs and documentaries for public television. It was a career that took her around the world, with stays in Nigeria, China and Sweden, among other locales, and which she continues part time. She holds a bachelor’s degree

in education and a master’s in radio, TV and film. Because of her extensive media background, she has been invaluable in helping her husband in his campaigns for seats on both the Riverside City Council and the Riverside Unified School District Board of Education. Her involvement included designing signs and composing campaign literature. “I couldn’t have done it without her. She’s a very skilled, very bright lady,” said Chuck Beaty. “Without her, I couldn’t have had the career I have had. I am so fortunate to have such a dear wife; she’s just a treasure.” She, in turn, treasures the Riverside community for its tremendous support in October 1998, when a gunman shot up City Hall, injuring six people including her husband, who was a council member at the time. Chuck Beaty was hit three times and suffered the most serious injuries. “The outpouring of love and support from the community was something special,” she said. — Carla Sanders

Advancements are improving patient care, safety Written by Amy Bentley


oday’s technology is transforming healthcare procedures and improving patient safety in myriad ways, both nationally and in Riverside. Here’s a look at some of the advancements that are helping ensure healthier outcomes for patients at Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center, Riverside Community Hospital, Riverside Medical Clinic and Parkview Community Hospital. Electronic medical records Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center has adopted several measures using technology to ensure that patients get the correct medications and proper doses. For one, every patient at the 222-bed hospital has an electronic medical record that includes everything from the patient’s history of visits and medications to immunizations and allergies. Patients also may access the information online and via a smartphone app. “It brings all of those pieces — the pharmacy, nurses and doctors — together so they do the right thing for each 22

individual patient,” said Karen Beach, an RN and clinical information specialist. Every Kaiser hospital patient is assigned a unique barcode, similar to the ones on products at grocery stores, and they wear them on wristbands. Before a nurse gives a patient any medication, the nurse scans the wristband and then scans the medication; if it’s not on the patient’s profile, a warning shows up. Nurses can still use their judgment in case of an emergency, Beach says. Medications being filled by Kaiser’s automated dispensing machines have bar codes as well. In addition, the hospital last fall replaced all of its IV infusion pumps with new pumps that have more built-in safety features. Also, there’s a “high alert” policy for certain medications, requiring a second nurse to doublecheck everything before it is administered. “We’ve noticed a decrease in medication errors since we started barcoding (in 2009),” said Bill Templeman, the hospital’s inpatient pharmacy quality supervisor. 10800 Magnolia Ave., Riverside 951-353-2000

CyberKnife, Stereotaxis Riverside Community Hospital Riverside Community Hospital is boasting a pair of high-tech medical technologies: the CyberKnife Robotic Stereotactic Radiosurgery System to treat tumors, and the Stereotaxis Robotic Navigation System to treat irregular heartbeats.

The CyberKnife system offers non-invasive treatment of tumors.

“People no longer have to drive to San Diego or to Los Angeles for these high-tech specialty treatments,” said Cherie Russell, hospital spokeswoman. In December, the hospital became the Inland Empire’s first hospital to offer the CyberKnife system for tumors and lesions in the brain, spine, head, neck, lungs, liver, pancreas and prostate. It remains the region’s only hospital with the technology. The CyberKnife procedure is one of the most advanced forms of radiosurgery and offers a painless, noninvasive treatment that delivers high doses of precisely targeted radiation to treat cancer by destroying tumors and lesions within the body. It also reduces outpatient treatment from the typical 25-40 visits to one to five visits, says Dr. Afshin Rashtian, medical director of radiation oncology at the hospital’s

cancer center and medical director of The CyberKnife Center. CyberKnife uses a robotic arm to deliver highly focused beams of radiation. The robotic arm’s flexibility makes it possible to treat areas of the body that can’t be reached by other radiosurgery systems, according to Rashtian, allowing physicians to treat complex-shaped tumors with greater accuracy. The state-of-the-art image guidance system enables tracking and compensation for patient movement during treatment, ensuring accurate targeting during treatment, he says. CyberKnife is the only radiation delivery system that constantly tracks the tumor’s location and can spare surrounding healthy tissue from damage. If the patient moves during treatment, the CyberKnife automatically detects june-july 2013 | | 23

and compensates for the change, ensuring that only the target tumor location is reached. “You’re allowed to come in from multiple different angles and focus on a small area. It’s precision and pinpoint accuracy at its best,” Rashtian said. The patient may go home right after treatment; there is no incision, no pain and no recovery time. Also new is the Stereotaxis Robotic Navigation System, which offers state-ofthe-art technology to treat cardiac arrhythmias (also known as irregular heartbeats). Riverside Community is the only hospital in the Inland Empire offering the Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System technology, Russell says. Treatment of cardiac arrhythmias involves a minimally invasive procedure called catheter ablation, which is performed by a cardiac electrophysiologist (specialized cardiologist). The procedure involves identifying key areas of the heart causing the irregular


| | june-july 2013

electrical impulse and delivering radio-frequency energy to destroy the abnormal tissue and restore a regular rhythm. Stereotaxis uses magnets and advanced computer imaging to allow physicians to precisely direct a catheter to key parts of the heart that require treatment. The magnetic navigation system helps doctors pinpoint the area of interest with more precision, while minimizing radiation exposure for both patient and staff members, according to Dr. Truong Duong, medical director of electrophysiology at the hospital. “We normally manipulate catheters manually, but you can use the magnetic robotic navigation system to safely guide the catheter to hard-to-reach areas of the heart with high precision while improving catheter stability and reducing radiation exposure,” Duong said. 4445 Magnolia Ave., Riverside 951-788-3000

Wait-time updates Riverside Medical Clinic After arriving at an urgent care facility, the wait times to see a doctor can be brief or extremely lengthy depending on the season and the time of day or night. Riverside Medical Clinic is taking that uncertainty out of the equation by posting urgent care wait times on the homepage of its website, Information is updated every 15 minutes, and the link also is accessible via smartphones and tablets. It went live in November and is part of an effort to help patients with their healthcare decisions, according to Diego GalvezRamirez, director of patient support services. “If patients know where the wait Urgent care wait times are time is the accessible via shortest, maybe smartphones. they can make a better choice,” he said. Riverside Medical Clinic has made strides in improving customer service after implementing a new computer system in 2011, Galvez-Ramirez says. He was part of an RMC team that brainstormed ways to use the new computer system to improve service. “Wait time” is the time from when a patient checks in at the front desk to when he or she is moved to an exam room to see a doctor. All urgent care patients first see a triage nurse quickly after arriving regardless of how busy the facility is, Galvez-Ramirez says. Riverside Medical Clinic has urgent care facilities in Riverside (on Brockton Avenue), Corona and Moreno Valley,

MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing is for patients with early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis that hasn’t yet progressed to all three compartments of the knee. Using a robotic arm and computer imaging, surgeons precisely target only

the diseased portion of the knee and place an implant, without compromising healthy bone and tissue. Surgeons may replace one or two compartments of the knee, according to Portwood. The MAKOplastry total hip replacement is for patients suffering from a degenerative joint disease, such as arthritis. Before surgery, the surgeon crafts a 3-D model of the patient’s hip joint and pelvis to plan a course of action. During the procedure, real-time computer data and the robotic arm help the surgeon prepare the hip joint and properly place the implant. Accurate alignment and positioning of hip implants are important factors affecting surgical outcomes and the lifespan of the implant. The hospital began offering MAKOplasty with the robotic arm in November 2011. 3865 Jackson St., Riverside 951-688-2211

MAKOplasty Parkview Community Hospital MAKOplasty is an advanced robotic technology used in total hip and partial knee replacement surgery, and it’s proving to be a popular option with patients at Parkview Community Hospital. This innovative procedure incorporates the use of a robotic arm to help surgeons achieve a higher level of precision, which in turn helps patients attain success with less pain and more mobility. “It’s been helpful for our hip and knee joint program, giving us another tool to use for patients for better outcomes,” said Dr. John Portwood, an orthopedic surgeon practicing at Parkview Community Hospital. “It’s been wellreceived by patients and has a high patient satisfaction level.” Parkview is the only Inland Empire hospital offering MAKOplasty knee and hip procedures with the robotic arm, Portwood says. 26

Any way you slice it Many ingredients combine to make Jammin’ Bread a delicious dining experience Written by Betts Griffone


t 2 a.m., when most people are sound asleep, perhaps dreaming about a hearty breakfast, the folks at Jammin’ Bread Bakery and Cafe are busy baking tasty delights for those dreamers to enjoy at a more civilized hour. Cheryl Duffy and her husband, Patrick, have owned the restaurant in the Canyon Crest Towne Centre for more than 17 years, expanding at one point to accommodate their growing band of followers. The Duffys met while they were students at UC Santa Barbara, when both of them also were working as servers at a local restaurant. It must have been kismet because they’ve been working in the industry ever since. After they married, Cheryl cooked and made rag dolls for side money. She loved baking and would spend hours baking breads, cookies, cakes and pies — and she still remains thin. When they returned to Riverside, she continued her epicurean education while working at various restaurants including the Red Baron and Simple Simon’s Bakery & Bistro. She actually worked at both places at the same time for a while, but it was the bakery/cafe that won her heart. 28

introduced with a selection of appetizers, pizzas and a couple of entrees that were real crowdpleasers. Patrick has even hauled out the barbecue on occasion to grill steaks. Last summer, they started jazz nights with small plates and live music provided by a local group. The intent appears to be to avoid falling into a rut, so the changes keep things interesting both for loyal customers and themselves. Turkey sandwich Jammin’ Bread does catering with specialty on honey wheat menus that have included Mediterranean and Indian seed bread with selections. Cheryl also does special-order cakes for fruit salad any occasion. Cheryl says it’s her intent “to bake well, present nicely and kindly and make sure people are happy.” To back up that statement, she makes sure everything that comes out of her kitchen is freshly prepared. All of the soups, sauces, salad dressings and baked goods are made daily. Her original salad dressing was inspired by a recipe from the CIA — the Culinary Institute of America, in this case. Since she found the recipe, new ingredients have been added and it has been changed many times to make it even more interesting. If you’re thirsty, Jammin’ Bread has an espresso bar serving a variety of coffee drinks. If you want something a little stronger, beer and wine are served. Cheryl and her staff of 12, mostly students from local colleges, provide a wealth of fresh choices for hungry customers, and they do it with the most pleasant attitude.

Carrot Ginger Soup About this recipe: My husband, Patrick, created this, using the water that we blanched the apples in for our apple pie as the liquid for the soup. He came up with this in the wee hours of his bread baking days, many moons ago. It’s a vegan soup we serve every Wednesday. Ingredients 8 large carrots, peeled and cut into about 2-inch pieces 3 large onions, chopped 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 teaspoon ground ginger kosher salt, to taste black pepper, to taste crushed red chili, to taste 1 cup apple juice 2 cups orange juice Reserved cooking liquid Directions Coat bottom of soup pot with olive oil. Over medium heat, sauté onions and garlic until translucent. In another pot, add the carrots to boiling salted water until tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Put the cooked carrots, onions, seasonings, apple and orange juices in a food processor and process until smooth. Return to pot, adjust seasonings, adding reserved liquid to desired consistency. Makes 1 gallon

Lemon Bars About this recipe: These are super simple to bake, and if you are generous with the zest, they pack a citrus punch. Our customers love them. Judy Christensen, owner of the lovely children’s bookstore Imagine That!, gave me her recipe and said we needed to have these. Ingredients 1 cup butter, softened ½ cup powdered sugar 2 cups pastry flour, divided 4 large eggs 2 cups granulated sugar 1 teaspoon or more of lemon zest 6 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon baking powder
