Chocolate and cranberries - a holiday gift of taste! Black and White Holiday Bark with Cranberries Yield: 25 pieces Recipe from America’s Test Kitchen Holiday Cookies 2010 Special Issue Use good quality bittersweet and white chocolate in bar form. Chocolate chips contain less cocoa butter so that they can better hold their shape when baked in cookies, but this makes them harder to melt. Using bar chocolate will give you a much better texture in this bark. Scorched chocolate is a very sad thing, so keep a close eye on your chocolate as you melt it. You can also melt your chocolate in a double boiler instead of the microwave if you want. Ingredients 1 pound bittersweet chocolate, chopped, divided 1 cup Rice Krispies cereal 3/4 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries, chopped, divided 1 pound white chocolate, chopped Instructions Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil, allowing at least a two-inch overhang on all sides. Measure out and set aside 2 tablespoons of bittersweet chocolate for the topping. Microwave the remaining bittersweet chocolate J Nicolas 08 ad:J Nicolas HOD 04 ad 10/9/12 12:08 PM Page 1

in a bowl at 50% power for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides and stir. Continue to microwave the chocolate for 15 second intervals at 50% power, stirring between intervals, until just small lumps remain. Stir until smooth and pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the top and chill in the refrigerator until firm, about 30 minutes. Combine the Rice Krispies and 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and mix them together. Melt the white chocolate using the same method as the bittersweet chocolate, keeping in mind that white chocolate melts at a lower temperature than bittersweet chocolate. Gently fold the cereal mixture into the white chocolate until evenly incorporated. Spread over the bittersweet chocolate and smooth the top. Sprinkle with the remaining dried cranberries and return to the refrigerator to chill for another 30 minutes. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of bittersweet chocolate and pour into a small plastic bag. Cut a

small hole in the corner and drizzle the chocolate over the bark. Allow the bark to warm up slightly, about 10 minutes, and pull it out of the pan using the aluminum foil overhang and transfer to a cutting board. Carefully peel away the foil and cut bark into small squares with a sharp chef’s knife. The bark will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

CELLIST ALISA WEILERSTEIN JOINS PACIFIC SYMPHONY The rich, emotional depth of the wide-hipped cello is exploited for all its worth in the hands of exquisite virtuoso Alisa Weilerstein, when she performs Dvořák’s standard-setting Cello Concerto with Pacific Symphony for “Alisa Weilerstein Plays Dvořák.” Acclaimed worldwide for her “soulful expression and physical abandon” (New York Ti m e s ) , We i l e r s t e i n w o n t h e 2011 MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, granted to individuals who have shown exceptional merit and promise of continued creative work. She is the first cellist in more than 30 years to be signed by Decca Classics, which released her debut album at the end of October. Led by guest conductor Alexander Shelley, Nuremberg Symphony O r c h e s t r a ’s c h i e f c o n d u c t o r, the Symphony opens the program with festive melodies of Handel’s “Music for the Royal Fireworks,” followed by Debussy’s magical depiction of the sea, “La Mer.” “Alisa Weilerstein Plays Dvořák” takes place Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 6-8, at 8 p.m., in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, the concert includes a preview talk with Alan Chapman beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25-$112; for more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit PacificSymphony.org. “The young American cellist Alisa Weilerstein simply steals the show. Her musicianship is absolutely stunning. She captures a perfect balance between introversion and songfulness, sensitivity and whimsy, seeming entirely at one with the music, her cello becoming an extension of her heart. It’s remarkable playing—the sign of a truly great artist in the making.”–Classic FM The concert includes Handel’s “Music for the Royal Fireworks,” which was commissioned by Great Britain’s King George II in 1749 for a celebration of the end of the War of the Austrian Succession. It caused such a clamor in London that more than 12,000 people rushed in, causing a three-hour traffic jam at the London bridge. Majestic and heavy on brass and woodwinds, it is one of the late glories of the Baroque style. Also on the program—in contrast—is French impressionist Debussy, whose sensual evocation of the sea

in all its variety is on display in “La Mer.” “Debussy’s ‘La Mer ’ was composed between 1903 and 1 9 0 5 , ” s a y s t h e S y m p h o n y ’s Music Director Carl St.Clair. “He began composing it in France and finished it on the banks of the English Channel. It is a three-movement work depicting the ocean. But the subtlety, the detail—the colors, the feeling of moving waves, the splashing and the ocean mist and how he depicts this musical sound—is really Debussy’s genius. I know many artists who feel this is one of the greatest orchestral tapestries in the repertoire. It is truly a magnificent work depicting the great ocean. Some people say it is a miracle—just as the ocean is a miracle.” The concert concludes with the passion and grandeur of Dvo řá k ’s b r e a k t h r o u g h Ce l l o Concerto, as the spotlight focuses on virtuoso Weilerstein. At first, Dvořák refused to write a concerto for cello, claiming that “the cello is a beautiful instrument, but its place is in the orchestra and in chamber music. As a solo instrument it isn’t much good.” However, he was inspired by cellist Victor Herbert while serving as director for the National Conservatory in New York, and the resulting compostion set the standard by which all subsequent cello concertos have been measured. “Interestingly enough,” notes St.Clair, “it was Victor Herbert who was actually performing as principal cellist in the orchestra that premiered Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, ‘From the New World.’” C e l l i s t We i l e r s t e i n h a s a ttracted widespread attention for playing that combines a natural virtuosic command and technical precision with impassioned musicianship. The intensity of her playing has regularly been lauded, as has the spontaneity and sensitivity of her interpretations. Following her Zankel Hall (in New York’s Carnegie Hall) recital debut in 2008, Justin Davidson of New York Magazine said: “Whatever she plays sounds custom-composed for her, as if she has a natural affinity with everything.” Weilerstein has already appeared with most of the major conductors and the major orchestras throughout the United States and Europe. English conductor Shelley

was unanimously awarded first prize in the 2005 Leeds Conductors Competition, where he was described in the press as “the most exciting and gifted young conductor to have taken this highly prestigious award. His conducting technique is immaculate, everything crystal clear and a tool to his inborn musicality.” Along with his role as conductor of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra, Shelley also enjoys a close relationship with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, with which he performs regularly both in Bremen and around Germany. He is artistic director of their Zukunftslabor project, an

award-winning series which aims to build a lasting relationship between the orchestra and a new generation of concertgoers through grass-roots engagement. The son of professional musicians, Shelley studied cello and conducting at the Robert-Schumann-Hochschule, Dusseldorf, and in 2001 he founded the Schumann Camerata in Dusseldorf. Pacific Symphony’s classical series performances are made possible by the Hal and Jeanette Segerstrom Family Foundation, with additional support from American Airlines, The Westin South Coast Plaza, KUSC and PBS SoCal.

Friends of Dorothy Guild Closes – Raise $42k to Fight HIV/AIDS in OC The Friends of Dorothy Guild ended its seven-year fundraising program on behalf of AIDS Services Foundation Orange County with a spectacular Haunted Halloween Costume Party that raised $42,000 and brought their 2012 fundraising efforts to more than $100,000. Guests enjoyed dinner, auctions, dancing and Shoe Awards at the newly redecorated Center Club in Costa Mesa. Barbara Venezia, founder of The Friends of Dorothy Guild and chair of the Halloween event said, “This has been a wonderful partnership with ASF, and the Dorothys are so proud to have been able to make such a significant contribution in both funds and awareness-building to the wonderful programs ASF offers for those living with HIV/AIDS.” One of the many highlights was Mark Eskander presenting a check for $20,000 on behalf of the Louise Mandel Charitable Trust. Eskander has donated more than a quarter of a million dollars to the Dorothys’ efforts. Shelly Virkstis, chairman of the ASF Board commented, “On behalf of the board of directors and, even more so, on behalf of our clients living with HIV and AIDS here in Orange County, I want to again thank Barbara Venezia and the Dorothys for all they have done during the past five and half years. The more than $700,000 they have raised has allowed so many clients living with this disease to continue to receive the services they need. I also thank all the donors who have supported The Friends of Dorothy and invite them to continue their support of the services we offer by attending events, continuing their monthly donations and making an important difference in our community. I encourage everyone to visit ASF and see all the wonderful services your donations have supported and continue to support.” This year’s Haunted Halloween fundraiser was a fantasy world inhabited by sheiks, witches, Santa Claus, Scarlett O’Hara, wizards, ghouls, Rambo-wannabes, adventure heroes and heroines and more. Beset Costume went to Glenn Moyers as a hospital patient with a bourbon & water intravenous unit; Scariest was Kevin Young, a bloodied walking dead; Ericka and Damon Brannon of MAC Cosmetics were Best Couple as a Dead of the Dead couple; tied for Best Group were three oil sheiks Jeff Willkie, David Przeracki and Fred Kunz and the flight crew of a dubiously Virgin Airlines – J.M. Marconi, Adam Neeley, William May, Connie Chung and Justin Myers. Venezia presented the Dorothys’ special Red, Pink and Platinum Shoe Awards to those who have helped make the Guilds’ events such overwhelming successes. Contributing to the Haunted Halloween party were the Center Club, Billy’s Naked Chicken, Diva Cakes, Carolyn Stoaks Personal Catering, Elle Shoes and Barefoot Wine and Bubbly. Other honorees were past fashion show sponsors Freedom Reigns, designer Clay G. Adler, Jorge Rodriguez, Linda and Tom Salinger, Tommy Burgers, Sun-Dried Tomato, MAC Cosmetics, Premiere Healthcare, Dennis Silva of Quattro Caffe, Doug Gifford Photography, Susie and Kevin Coleman, The Crean Family Foundation, Tom Neas of Thomas Printers, D.J.s Steve Oaks and Golden Mike, John Fabris of the Orange County Register, Richard Moriarty and Loren Blackwood of Newport Vineyards and Winery. “It’s been a wonderful run, and it’s all due to the incredible steering committee,” Venezia said in closing. She named James Rust - Vice Chair, Tim Dunn – PR Chair, Pat Kennedy – Decorating Chair, Justin Myers – Beverage Chair, Mark Eskander – Underwriting Chair, Patti Gordon – Food chair, Karen and Doug Gifford, Ron Lenox – Social Media plus committee members Adam Neeley, Andrea Waite, Annemarie Miller-Jones, Bunny Clark, Chris Bragg, Christine Petersen, Dee Page 10

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 848-9272 or visit this Internet Web site www.elitepostandpub.com, using the file number assigned to this case 12-19105. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

Young adults: Avoid these privacy red flags

By Jason Alderman Young adults applying for college or preparing to enter the workforce are sometimes shocked to find out that that certain behaviors that were either tolerated or ignored when they were younger now fall under closer scrutiny and could actually hurt their advancement possibilities. Among the biggest culprits are oversharing sensitive personal information in public forums and getting extreme tattoos or body art that may not yet be fully acceptable in certain work environments. Red flags. It should be common Page 16

knowledge that many employers perform online profile searches of job or internship candidates. They’ll scour public postings on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube looking for inappropriate content like racy photos or videos, racist remarks or evidence of illegal activities that would rule inappropriate candidates. But many people don’t realize that colleges, insurance companies, law enforcement and government agencies sometimes do the same. Thus, an underage student hoping to boost his cool factor by posting photos that show him engaging in drinking games could be disqualified for college admission or even have his scholarship revoked. Privacy settings. According to projections by Consumer Reports, roughly 13 million Facebook users have never set, or didn’t know about, the site’s privacy tools, and 28 percent share all, or almost all, of their wall posts with more than just their friends. It pays to thoroughly read the privacy policies of all sites where you’ve registered, including social networks, your

bank, retailers, blogs and news sites where you’ve made comments, etc. Email is forever. Deleting an email from your computer doesn’t mean it no longer exists. Chances are your email provider – or employer, if sent from work – will retain a record for years to come. Plus, recipients won’t necessarily delete the email and may in fact forward it to others. Haunting photos. Just like emails, photos posted online can live forever. That includes pictures of you that someone else posted and tagged with your name. My rule of thumb: If you wouldn’t want your grandmother to see it, don’t do it, say it or film it. Also, don’t post photos of your kids that might embarrass them or hurt their professional reputation down the road. Resume lies. It can be tempting to embellish the truth on your resume or during a job interview, but as recent headlines about disgraced executives being fired have shown, these lies can come back to haunt you. Employers can easily determine if the degree or

past job titles you’re claiming are legitimate. Another no-brainer: If your resume is posted online on Monster.com or LinkedIn, make sure there aren’t major inconsistencies with the one you submit to prospective employers. Tattoos. One-fifth of adults have at least one tattoo – the percentages are higher among younger adults. A few years ago, job candidates wouldn’t get past the first interview sporting tattoos; today, depending on the industry and type of customer contact involved, many employers will look the other way. However, some employers do enforce strict no-tattoo policies which, if based on sound business reasons, are legal. Fortunately, my own kids aren’t old enough for body art to be a consideration, but when they are, I’ll give them the same advice I’d give any young adult: Think about the long-term consequences of your actions.

Tips to Top off Every Holiday Moment There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season than by inviting friends and family into your home for good food and good fun. This year, surprise your special guests with festive treats and fun activities to keep them happy all season long. Try these ideas at your next holiday gathering: Host a holiday game night. From board games to puzzles, family and friends can reconnect over the holidays during a casual game or a game tournament. Take a break between rounds to whip up some delicious, simple-to-prepare treats like homemade ice cream sandwiches. Lay out a selection of cookies, ice cream and ice cream toppings and encourage participants to get creative. Vanilla ice cream with Smucker’s® Microwavable Hot Caramel Topping sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies makes everyone a winner. Create indoor adventures. When the weather gets cold think inside the box to create fun adventures. With a little imagination an old blanket quickly transforms into a magic carpet, couch cushions and bed sheets make forts, and a simple flash light becomes a projector for shadow puppets in a dark

playroom. When it’s time for a break, reward your adventurers with s’mores or other sweet treats. Enjoy morning coffee club. Avoid the coffee house rush and serve up something special at your own house. Spend the early hours relaxing and catching up with friends and family over a delicious Caramel Cream Coffee. Show off your barista skills by mixing fresh strong brewed coffee, Smucker’s Sundae Syrup™ Caramel Flavored Syrup and whipped cream.

Cook over medium heat, shaking pan until nuts are lightly browned. To avoid over browning remove from pan immediately.

New Ways to Enjoy Chocolate Humans have adored the taste of chocolate for thousands of years. Though generally viewed as a sweet treat today, it likely started as bitter beverage drunk by the Mayan people. Chocolate has seen many iterations since then, including the beloved chocolate candy we know today; however, there are other ways to enjoy chocolate in addition to the bar or bonbon. Chocolate expert and historian Beth Kimmerle offers some new uses for chocolate that you might not know about. Ditch the preconceived notions. Think chocolate is just for ice cream and late night snacks? Think again. Cocoa powder, a trendy spice for savories, is great on meats, while cocoa nibs can be used as a substitute for nuts in everything from baked goods to salads. Cook with cocoa. Try cocoa butter in place of cooking oil. Not only does it add great flavor, but it also imparts extra smoothness to desserts such as cookies and brownies. Drink it (not just in hot chocolate). Chocolate and red wine naturally complement each other and now, instead of tasting them side-by-side, you can enjoy them together in one glass. ChocolatRouge Wines blend Page 18
