One of the country’s most esteemed experts on politics, media and the law, he’s written critically acclaimed best-sellers such as The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court and American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst. The Run of His Life was the basis for the acclaimed mini-series about O.J. Simpson, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr.

I

editor’s note ’ve always had a lovehate relationship with Ja n u a r y . Pa r t o f m e finds the hush after the holiday rush to be slightly melancholy. Decorations are put away, vacations come to a halt, bank accounts are bleak, and it seems there’s little to look forward to. To make

matters worse, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February” (ahem, January), the air is still bonechilling cold, and maybe it’s just me, but the glow of winter seems to lose a little of its gleam. The “love” side of me, however, sees it as a month of newness—a chance to wipe the slate clean, reflect on the previous 365 days (what worked, what didn’t) and take a moment to set some goals and put energy toward what I hope the coming year will bring. Whether you loathe or love January, we’re here to help. In this month’s feature, “Chill Out: 50+ Ways to Beat the Winter Blues” (page 49), Sharon Penny presents fun ways to turn that postChristmas frown upside down. From “pretending it’s summer” by eating ice cream and swimming in a (heated) pool; to going somewhere sunny (our picks might just have you packing your bags before you finish reading); warming up with hot soup, a stiff

6

cocktail or mug of cocoa; embracing the outdoors courtesy of a hike, bike ride or trip to the slopes; and chasing the (natural) light at one of our region’s sun-soaked museums or restaurants, you might find yourself loving winter just a little more. To ensure you don’t fall sick, we even have tips from medical pros on how to boost your immunity (Hint: Get seven to eight hours of sleep every night). Consider it your guide to help you survive, and thrive, this month—and the rest of 2018. Speaking of staying healthy, in Swag (page 40), Sabrina Gonzalez helps you gear up with “16 Workout Essentials,” because we all know that looking fit helps inspire us to get fit; in The 10 Spot (page 20), Tara Mendanha gives us a rundown of her favorite figure-friendly (but still flavor-packed) foods from area eateries, so you can dine out and still stick to that diet; and, finally, flip to The Hot List (page 72) for the top salad bars in town, because who doesn’t love being in charge of what gets put on their plate? In writing this month’s note, I learned a fun fact about January—the name is thought to have originated from Janus, the Roman god of new beginnings and endings, who was usually depicted with two faces, one looking into the past and the other looking toward the future. As you welcome 2018, I hope you hold the memories from 2017 dear to your heart, and face the new year with compassion, hope, and happiness. Cheers!

What are the advantages of assisted living? Assisted living is an option for older adults who aren’t only seeking safety and security, but also a life-enriching experience. It’s an opportunity for individuals to enhance the quality of their lives through social, educational, and experiential opportunities. It’s been proven that loneliness can reduce an older adult’s life expectancy; in fact, people who are active and socializing with others tend to be healthier and happier. Health issues, such as high blood pressure and other conditions, can be minimized in an environment where staff is providing assistance and support and residents are engaging in activities. There are numerous opportunities to remain active at an assisted living facility, and residents can choose how little or how much they want to participate.

What are the health benefits of getting involved in a sport versus taking a class? Congratulations on making the decision to become more active and healthy! Movement is key to this, and health clubs offer a variety of classes, which generally combine cardiovascular and strength training, help build up your heart and lungs, and strengthen your muscles from head to toe. You’ll also get instruction and accountability. Participating in sports primarily builds your cardiovascular system (heart and lungs); strength also comes from this, but is more specific to the muscles you use in doing the sport, rather than a full body focus. Try both, and see which you prefer. Just get moving!

olsom resident Candy Miller first became interested in history after a trip she and her late husband, Robert, took to New England in the ’70s. “[Going to]

places I read about in history books was incredible,” she recalls. After moving to Folsom in 1985, she became increasingly involved with the Folsom Historical Society (FHS) and soon discovered a passion for preserving the region’s past. With the help of her team at the FHS, Miller was part of a committee appointed by the city council to recommend a new ordinance to protect historic homes from being razed to the ground by developers, and

establish design guidelines for Folsom’s Historic District. She also oversaw dramatic improvements to the Folsom History Museum, a way for people to see regional history come to life through interactive exhibits. In addition, Miller sits on the board of the Murer House Foundation, a nonprofit that offers Italian culture, history, and cooking classes at the Murer House and Learning Center. For all her efforts over the years, Miller was recently awarded the first-ever Folsom History Hero Award. Yet for her, the greatest reward is being able to see the fruits of her labor, every time she walks through the Historic District. “The history of Folsom is extremely unique, and we have a lot here to be proud of,” she enthuses. —Amber Foster

olsom Parks and Recreation offers a variety of dance, fitness, and sports programs for all ages, from preschoolers to seniors.

that takes participants on tours of Folsom’s recreational trails. Seniors may also enroll in adult fitness programs and sports leagues.

OUTDOOR WORKOUTS The city’s 45-mile network of scenic, paved recreational trails provides convenient access for walking, running, or bicycling. Trails can be accessed within most neighborhoods and near businesses and retail centers. A map of the trails can be found on the city’s website.

Selections include dance, soccer, tennis, football, wrestling, archery, swimming and more.

ADULTS (18+) Adult fitness programs are a great way to try out a new activity or build on existing skills, relieve stress, and meet new people. Selections include yoga, tai chi, tennis, lap swim, aquacise, and team sports; some are ongoing and allow drop-in participation.

Cash donations will be accepted and used to help the EDH Promise Foundation’s Community Assisting with Recreation Experiences (C.A.R.E.) program. To prepare: Remove everything from the tree including all ornaments, lights, ornament holders, nails, and stand; trees that are “flocked” are not eligible for chipping. Discarded wreaths,

Residents have a choice of: • Bringing their own trees to the park either day • Utilizing the Boy Scouts curbside tree collection fundraiser on January 6 • Cutting the tree into small pieces to place in the green waste cart (making sure it’s not so packed in that it will get stuck in the cart when being emptied) for green waste collection week • Taking trees to the Recycling Center at 4421 Latrobe Road • Taking trees to the Material Recovery Facility in Diamond Springs

Celebrate National Blood Donor Month

Photo courtesy of BloodSource.

A

s the season of giving comes to a close, we often get back into the swing of things without thinking that help is still needed in a big way. When it comes to giving blood, donations typically drop at the start of a new year, hence why January is National Blood Donor Month. “Every two seconds, someone needs blood, and there is no artificial substitute—only another person can give this gift,” explains BloodSource Communications Manager Vicki Wolfe. “Blood is a perishable product with a shelf life of only 42 days, so the blood supply must constantly be replenished to help meet the needs of patients,” adds Christine Welch, communications manager for American Red Cross California Blood Services Region. If you’re hesitant to give blood, keep in mind that even the possibility of saving lives is worth a slight pinch. Bring along a book or music, and relax—donor center volunteers are there to help you feel comfortable. You can also consider donating to StemExpress in Folsom, which utilizes blood donations for biomedical research and offers compensation. “Researchers around the world always need blood samples for their projects. The faster they get samples, the faster they can complete their research, and the faster new treatment technologies can reach patient care—[ultimately] saving lives!” says Director of Procurement Operations at StemExpress, Megan Barr. —Emily Peter

Her male counterpart, Pinyon, was found starving on Latrobe Road by a construction crew. He suffered from an arthritic left wing from an old injury and has been at the zoo since 2011.

CORE Contemporary Dance Movement Matters

// by HEATHER L. BECKER // photos by DANTE FONTANA

C

ORE, a non-profit contemporary dance company that serves threeyear-olds to adults, began 11 years ago with the mission to inspire, educate and entertain, as well as promote the expression of the human experience through movement. Artistic Director Kelli Leighton, whose greatest passions are being an educator, teaching and creating, opened her studio, Leighton Dance Project, which now houses CORE, in 2013. Alongside their innovative full-length numbers, it’s the stellar outreach programs—from “student nights” at their concerts, to free adaptive classes every Friday for children with special needs along with their siblings, and after-school dance clubs—that CORE counts as their biggest accomplishment.

HLB: TELL US MORE ABOUT CORE’S BEGINNING. KL: CORE started as a group of dancers looking to continue dancing and moving. At the time, Sacramento Ballet was the [only other professional company] in the area. [Since its inception], CORE has produced full-length works in various theaters and venues around the Greater Sacramento area, including the Harris Center, as well as in Brooklyn, Salt Lake City, and Pittsburgh. We’ve also developed strong outreach programs, including high school master classes with Emmy award-winning So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Mia Michaels. Opposite Page: Kelli Leighton (front) with CORE dancers: Samantha Matsumoto, Liselle Yap, Jared Baker, Becca Newton, Amanda Kolodney, Erika Ripley, Taylor Payne, Vuong Nguyen, and Isabella Harris Right: Isabella Harris Below: Taylor Payne

HLB: HOW DOES CORE ACHIEVE ITS MISSION? KL: The work CORE produces is inspired by the human condition, the struggles and triumphs that we all experience in our dayto-day life and as a society. Our audiences are left feeling something; no matter if they love it or hate it, we want them to leave a performance having an experience and be deep in thought. We also like to entertain our audiences and keep them wanting more. CORE loves the element of surprise. HLB: IN WHAT WAYS IS CORE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DANCE COMPANIES? KL: We’re the only dance company in the area with extensive outreach programs [who also creates] new full-length shows each season. Together, we explore our differences in the creative process and celebrate what makes us similar, [which] inspires the work. As a choreographer, I’m extremely inspired by my dancers. I use journaling in the process, allowing the dancers to express their views and feelings on certain subjects, [which] we discuss and let guide the creative process. It’s most definitely a collaborative effort. HLB: HOW DO YOU COMMUNICATE TO AUDIENCES THROUGH DANCE? KL: We’re all more similar than we sometimes like or want to believe. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing: to be loved and accepted. Dance can be a vessel to bring an audience together for a couple hours and unite us in a thoughtprovoking way. I’ve always felt a good choreographer can get their point across in a non-literal way, leaving the door open for all ages and backgrounds to interpret what they need out of a performance and draw their own conclusions. It should always be a great conversation starter, and that’s what brings us together; communication is how we educate each other on concepts and develop understanding for each other, but it also opens the door to new ideas and appreciation for our common human experiences. corecontemporarydance.org

Material World 5 Kitchen Countertops

E

very kitchen has countertops, yet oftentimes, not much thought goes into the vast array of materials available. As the workhorses

by KERRIE L. KELLY, FASID

Quartz

of the kitchen, they should be able to stand up to wear and tear beyond their aesthetics. When making a selection, it’s important to consider the different characteristics of each material, how you’ll be using them in your own kitchen, how durable they need to be, and if you’re OK with a natural patina. To determine which countertop best suits you and your needs, weigh the pros and cons of these options.

1

QUARTZ
 Quartz countertops are created from a compound to your exact specifications, using a resin and particles of very finely ground quartz, and can be polished to a high shine and mimic the look of marble. Since it’s manufactured, you can get any color, pattern, texture, and finish imaginable. It’s also very durable; is resistant to scratches, chips, and breaks; won’t need to be sealed; and is non-porous, so it’s stainand bacteria-resistant. Keep in mind, however, that quartz tends to be more expensive, and is not as heat-resistant as Granite

granite, tile, or concrete.

 Price: $$$



2

GRANITE

 Granite is a natural stone that’s quarried from all over the world. It goes through an extensive polishing process to get shiny but can also be honed for a matte finish, and is considered one of the most beautiful countertop materials. Available in limited colors and natural patterns, you’ll likely search for the perfect slab to fit your home. Granite is eco-friendly—since it’s naturally harvested— has excellent durability, and is heat- and stain-resistant (if you take proper care of it). The major con is the sealing needed to maintain it. If it’s improperly sealed or you don’t reseal it when needed, it can become porous, which can lead to staining, bacteria, and possibly breaking. The maintenance is similar to that of marble, which also tends to be just as expensive as granite.

 Price: $$$$

WOOD Butcher block is the most common and popular form of wood countertops, and is sometimes mixed with quartz or granite throughout the kitchen, like on the prep island or near the oven. Wood countertops can be made from reclaimed wood or bamboo for an eco-friendly option, add a warm and beautiful touch to any kitchen, and work well for those who enjoy baking and will be doing a lot of food preparation. You can also count on it being one of the least expensive countertop options. Wood tops do have to be sealed quite often to keep water out, as it can warp and pull apart the wood as well as hold bacteria in and stain. Price: $$

4

CONCRETE
 Usually one thinks of concrete as being heavy and cumbersome, but new materials make it a light yet durable and trendy choice. Durability is, in fact, one of the biggest pros of concrete, as well as shape and size customization. You can also etch, stain, or press tiles into it. Concrete countertops require about as much sealing and maintenance as granite or marble, and can be expensive to install. Price: $$$

5

SOLID SURFACE
 Solid surface countertops are becoming extremely popular. Made from a synthetic material, like acrylic, you can get them in nearly any color, so they remain the most versatile and durable product out there. They can be patterned to mimic granite or quartz and yet don’t need the maintenance of those materials. They’re not porous and therefore won’t stain or hold bacteria; plus, they’re more affordable than their stone counterparts. You may find they’re not as heat-resistant as quartz and may scratch occasionally, but that can be fixed easily. While they don’t provide the same high shine and luxe look as stone, they do fit in well with a modern or

traditional look.

PRETEND IT’S SUMMER

Make like it’s 100 degrees in the shade and indulge in a Red Velvet Ponchik. Nope, not a yoga pose—a red velvet donut filled with ice cream from The Niche Ice Cream. While some suggest bringing a friend to share it with, we’ll take that under advisement. When you’ve awoken from your happy nap, it might be a good time to hit the pool. You know, because it’s “summer” and you still need to cool down. Take some laps or just bliss out and float for a while in the El Dorado Hills Sports Club’s heated pool. And then complete your day by heading over to the Folsom Sun Club for a tanning bed session. Now go out into the world and stride amongst the poor sad winter-dwellers like a radiant Amazonian sun goddess who knows the meaning of the word “ponchik.” The Niche Ice Cream, 25004 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 109, Folsom, 916-398-9800, thenicheicecream.com; El Dorado Hills Sports

If you’re looking for heritage, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has it— after all, they hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. Squaw has a reputation for being an extreme-skier mecca, and it’s a huge place (6,000 acres of skiing and riding), but don’t let that shy you away—there’s plenty of room for beginners and moderate skiers here as well. And if you don’t ski, that’s OK: Ride the aerial tram and take in the spectacular view! 1960 Squaw Valley Road, Olympic Valley, 800-403-0206, squawalpine.com Northstar California has a well-earned reputation for being a glitzy

The temperature doesn’t get much below 65, so while it’s not tropical, it’s warm enough to walk around in a T-shirt. Gorgeous wide sandy beaches, a picturesque harbor that’s perfect for sea kayaking, an emerging arts and culture scene, and great craft beer (try Bagby Beer Company and Breakwater Brewing) and food (the burger at 608—featuring dry-aged beef, melty cheddar, pickles, crispy onions, and a chili aioli that’s scratch-made using house-fermented chiles—is seriously to die for) make it an ideal destination for couples and families alike. Book an “ocean-side” room at the surf-inspired SpringHill Suites by Marriott Oceanside for easy access to the above-mentioned activities and a killer continental breakfast.

Chill Out

SEDONA

STAY HEALTHY

Shideh Chinichian, MD, a family medicine physician with Mercy Medical Group in El Dorado Hills, recommends the following tips to boost your immune system during winter months:

Las Vegas

Roll the dice on Vegas this winter. Since the daytime average high is in the 60s, you can go out of doors during the day and not burst into flames, which means if you’re not a gambler, there’s even more to do and see! Take advantage of that mild January desert weather and book a tour at the Neon Museum. Tip: The museum offers combo ticket packages with the latest Vegas newcomer, The Mob Museum, so you can check out two great Vegas attractions. There’s great sightseeing to be had in the area, too—take a drive and see the Hoover Dam, a breathtaking monument to engineering that’s just 40 minutes away from Vegas by car, or take in a show like Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil at Mandalay Bay.

Lake Havasu City

With its proximity to Southern California, Las Vegas and Phoenix, Lake Havasu City is an undiscovered destination that promises good (warm) times for the whole family. Featuring more than 300 days of sunshine a year, 400 miles of stunning coastline, and 60 miles of navigable waterways, Western Arizona’s desert playground is not to be missed. Book a stay at Heat Hotel (we recommend the Inferno Suite, featuring an oversized shower and color-changing LED lights), a super cool boutique property on the shores of Lake Havasu with unparalleled views of the water and London Bridge (an aqueduct built in the 1830s that formerly spanned the River Thames in London) plus a lakefront lounge and complimentary continental breakfast. Golfing, hot air balloon adventures, scenic hiking trails, and water sports are all a stone’s throw away.

Sedona

If you’re more serious about the desert experience this winter, get your bohemian lifestyle on and go full desert in Sedona where high temperatures range in the 60s during January. Rent a yurt (airbnb. com/rooms/15807158) or a geodesic dome (airbnb.com/rooms/578314) or take advantage of the low-priced hotel accommodations in the area. And since Sedona is located roughly 100 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, it’s a great time of year to see one of our great natural wonders sans crowd.

Kihei

Located on the Southwest shore of Maui, not far from Wailea, Kihei is a great pick for “under the radar” affordable accommodations; and weather-wise, the temperature averages a balmy 80 degrees. Since it’s located on the leeward (sheltered) side of the island, you’ll also find there’s less rain. Kihei is located close to the stunningly picturesque Road to Hana and Haleakalā volcano, so you can plan some great bike rides or hikes. What’s more, January is prime whale time, so make sure you schedule a whale-watching trip!

Amandeep Bajwa, MD, a family medicine physician with Mercy Medical Group in Rocklin, says the secrets to boost one’s immunity during the winter months are surprisingly simple. Dr. Bajwa suggests you: • Get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night. • Eliminate processed foods as often as possible, and opt for a balanced diet full of colorful fruits and vegetables, and protein. • Exercise, even when it’s cold outside, as frequent physical activity will help boost your immunity. • Receive the influenza vaccine (flu shot). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that everyone over the age of six months should get the vaccine once a year ahead of flu season, which lasts from October to May.

• Keep a healthy lifestyle by managing your stress! Sleep, diet, and exercise can all influence your stress levels, so keep a close eye on those factors. Maintaining a healthy weight can also help your immune system stay healthy and high functioning. • Take supplements with immune-boosting nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, omega 3, and probiotics. • Incorporate foods that can boost your immune function, like garlic, ginger, onion, black pepper, turmeric, and green tea. • Drink plenty of water and keep well hydrated.

DINING SPOTLIGHT

Thai Paradise Bliss in Every Bite by LORN RANDALL photos by DANTE FONTANA

MY FAVORITE ENTRÉE OF THE DAY WAS THE SPICY CURRY NOODLES (ORDERED WITH SHRIMP). THOUGH ALL THE CURRIES AND SAUCES ARE MADE IN HOUSE — WHICH IS NOT THE CASE IN MANY ESTABLISHMENTS — THIS BRILLIANT YELLOW CURRY HAS APPARENTLY BEEN A FAMILY TREASURE FOR GENERATIONS…

Spicy Curry Noodles


I Eggplant Delight

remember dining at Thai Paradise several years ago, but things have changed. The previously small, quiet restaurant has morphed into a bigger, bustling success story. The food was excellent back then, but had not reached the level of popularity it now enjoys. One of my all-time favorite appetizers is Angel Wings. Thai Paradise has them, and they’re fantastic. I'm not sure what they charge for the labor-intensive (I’ve made them at home and can attest!) flavor bombs, but whatever it is, they’re worth every penny. A whole wing is deboned, then stuffed with ground chicken, noodles, garlic, and ginger, before being battered, deep-fried, and accompanied by a special honey plum sauce. If you like wings, these are a must. Next was the Eggplant Delight. I know eggplant is one of those polarizing foods people either love or hate, but count Angel Wings me in the love-it camp. This version featured delicate pieces of aubergine with red bell peppers, onions, garlic, basil, and jalapeños in a dark, slightly sweet sauce, and a pronounced piquant flavor from the latter ingredient. I ordered it with beef, which was thinly sliced and perfect alongside the Thai aromatics. My favorite entrée of the day was the Spicy Curry Noodles (ordered with shrimp). Though all the curries and sauces are made in-house—which is not the case in many establishments—this brilliant yellow curry has apparently been a family treasure for generations…at least that’s my romanticized presumption. Served with flat rice noodles, red bell peppers, onions, snow peas, bamboo shoots, green beans, bean sprouts, basil, and roasted onions in a soul-soothing sauce, it’s quintessential Thai adapted for American tastes.

Which Wich Superior Sandwiches

// As I entered one of Folsom’s newest quick-serve eateries, Which Wich, I couldn't

help but notice the inviting atmosphere. Modern, with bright colors and a minimalistic style, it's the perfect setting for a midday meal. Instead of ordering directly on the sandwich line and adding toppings as you go down, Which Wich has customers begin by filling out a sandwich bag that corresponds with their chosen sub—allowing patrons to specify the style, size, toppings, temperature (hotwich or coldwich), sauces, spices, and any special requests they may have. Though slightly overwhelmed by all the options, the employees sensed my indecisiveness and convinced me to order their signature sandwich: the Wicked. The name really speaks for itself and feeds the need no matter what you’re craving. Piled high with turkey, ham, roast beef, pepperoni, bacon, plus your choice of three cheeses (I opted for pepper jack, American, and cheddar) and any additional toppings you want. I'm a total veg head so had mine stuffed with all the fresh fixings (lettuce, tomatoes, black olives, red onions, cucumbers, pickles, etc.). The sammie did not disappoint; every ingredient was perfectly stacked, making for a mouthwatering, fulfilling (and filling!) lunch. I will definitely be back to try more creations from their enormous menu. Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, 1300 East Bidwell Street, Folsom, 916-294-7439, whichwich.com.

THE HOT LIST

Favorite Salad Bars compiled by STYLE STAFFERS // photos by DANTE FONTANA

All hail the salad bar! A little of this, a little of that—they give diners total creative freedom to make a meal that meets their taste buds’ standards. Luckily, we have some pretty satisfying options in our backyard. Lettuce introduce you to a few of our faves. In no particular order…

“Food fast doesn’t have to be fast food.

Nugget Markets’ salad bar always gives me a healthy alternative to anything from a drive-through. It’s fresh, reasonably priced (around $8.99 per pound), and loaded with veggies, proteins, toppings, homemade dressings, and several pasta and grain salads. You can’t beat it—plus it’s prepared by the person I trust most: me!” nuggetmarket.com

“The build-your-own salads at Jack’s Urban Eats are like a (healthy) choose your own adventure. Pick your lettuce, dressing, and six toppings, then wait for the staff to perfectly mix everything, as the flavors meld together in perfect salad harmony. My go-to is mixed greens with roasted beets, blue cheese, mapleglazed walnuts, quinoa, Fuji apples, and sundried cranberries with house-made balsamic vinaigrette. But no salad from Jack’s is complete without a side of Urban Fries—crisp French fries topped with spicy chili oil, blue cheese, and chili flakes.” jacksurbaneats.com

stylefedh.com // JANUARY 2018 //

“Whether you’re craving pork carnitas, kung pao chicken, pizza and pasta, or pastries aplenty, Waterfall Buffet at Red Hawk Casino delivers. But it’s their salad bar that always turns my hangry frown upside down. Full of a seasonal fruit display, assorted cheeses, prepared salads like cranberry-apple with candied walnuts, plus an impressive assortment of condiments and dressings, it’s an easy way to pack in your daily dose of produce. Just don’t forget to come hungry and wear stretch pants!” redhawkcasino.com/ dining/waterfall-buffet

“Buttercup Pantry Restaurant in Placerville has offered their classic, no-fuss salad bar for years. Whether you want to make-your-own side salad in addition to ordering a regular entrée ($7.99 for one trip) or choose it as your meal ($9.75 for all-you-can-eat), the variety of fresh fruits and veggies, selection of side salads, freshbaked breads (the cornbread muffins are to die for) and piping hot soups (all made inhouse) always satisfy. The best part? The set price means you can pile it as high as you want—weight be damned!” 530-621-1320

“Every time I step foot in Whole Foods Market I’m like a kid in a candy store. For a vegan, their salad bar is a dream come true. With offerings like sesame tofu that my meat-loving husband also loves, plus a rainbow of organic, fresh-picked produce—all precisely sliced and diced—nuts aplenty, and a mouthwatering lemony avocado dressing, it’s the ultimate in next-level lunching.” wholefoodsmarket.com

“Though I go to Raku Sushi for the made-to-order, all-you-can eat rolls, nigiri, maki, and seriously addicting (still warm) donuts, their salad bar is not to be missed. While waiting for the main event (i.e., the sushi), I always load up on edamame, seasoned cucumbers, seaweed salad, salsa-topped mussels, cabbage slaw, and perfectly al dente green beans. Talk about a tasty way to begin a gluttonous feast.” rakurestaurant.com

beat until combined. Mix in baking powder, salt, and flour. Stir in sprinkles.

Press into prepared pan (dough is sticky; spray your hands with cooking spray to avoid it sticking to your hands). Bake for about 22-24 minutes. They’ll be slightly golden, but still have the slightest jiggle in the center, and will set as they cool. Cool completely before frosting.

To make the frosting, beat the butter until smooth. Slowly mix in powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Frost bars. Sprinkle with additional sprinkles and cut. Yields 24 bars. *You can find butter extract at most grocery stores in the baking aisle.

FLATLAND BREWING COMPANY’S FLANNEL JACKET IMPERIAL STOUT ABV: 10.1%

St. Helena-based Ménage á Trois promises a “luscious love affair” with their collection of fun, flirtatious wines. Originating as a blend of three red varietals (hence the provocative name ménage á trois) in 1996, the winery has since expanded to include a large repertoire of varietals—full of ripe, luscious flavors, alluring aromas, and sensual textures. For more info, visit menageatroiswines.com.

Ménage á Trois Gold Chardonnay ABV: 14.8% OVERALL RATING: 4 TASTING NOTES: Refreshing citrusy nose; smooth from the first sip to the last; sweet but not cloying; would be good with crème brûlée, chicken stew, or a turkey casserole; smells and tastes likes pineapple and peaches with a mild, oaky finish PRICE: $9.99 PURCHASE: Cost Plus World Market

Ménage á Trois Decadence Cabernet Sauvignon ABV: 13.8% OVERALL RATING: 3 TASTING NOTES: Dark in color and very fragrant; silky but tastes earthy with notes of cherries, plum, and oak; light on the pepper, but heavy on the jam; highly drinkable; a wine that would definitely warm you up in the wintertime and pair nicely with dark chocolate PRICE: $11.24 PURCHASE: Cost Plus World Market

OVERALL RATING is the average score (out of 5) compiled by Style staff tasters. Ratings should be taken with a grain of salt, as we are by no means “experts”—just hard-working employees who enjoy imbibing.

Pairs with

Elk Grove’s award-winning Flatland Brewing Company opened two years ago and has been making waves with their unique and tasty brews ever since. With a motto of “small batch, huge impact,” co-owners Andrew and Michelle Mohsenzadegan are dedicated to brewing with local ingredients and specialize in sours, hoppy and roasted brews, in addition to wineinfused offerings. Their Flannel Jacket Imperial Stout is made with espresso and creamy vanilla, resulting in a rich, decadent liquid dessert that’s full-bodied with a pleasant coffee finish. Try it with vanilla-based sweets, like this month’s Cake Batter Blondie Bars, for a (literal) treat. —Eden Tuscano, 36 Handles

Everyone loves sprinkles—me included. A jar of sprinkles can make my day! These bars are filled with sprinkles and cake batter flavor, without using a mix. The secret to getting the cake batter flavor? Butter extract! You’ll be shocked at how much these bars taste like a slice of cake...but with the texture of a blondie.

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?

Real estate has always been my passion; in 2009, I was fortunate to be able to start my business, after nearly 20 years working in high tech.

My lifelong love of cooking brought me to start The Hidden Table, a catering and personal chef service. I’ve always enjoyed preparing gourmet meals and been passionate about great food. Although I have perfected many recipes (some of which are on my website) and have 25 years of restaurant and catering experience, I really like preparing dishes that match my clients' tastes. I trained in St. Helena, Europe, and South America focusing on elegant peasant foods; although I graduated from the California Culinary Academy and had a nine-month stint at the Culinary Institute of America, I’m most proud to be a graduate of the "CAML (Cooking All My Life) Culinary School." After catering for years as an occasional side job, I decided it was time to dive into the food industry full-time and start The Hidden Table. It seemed to be the perfect match for my desire to have a small, intimate business that focuses on organic farmto-fork food, health, and nutrition. I believe the most delicious and attractive foods are made using a variety of fresh produce, herbs, meats, fish, and whole (not processed) foods.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of? Raising two wonderful, engaging children who have grown to be strong and confident adults.

What’s your hidden talent? I can clean anything. I may ruin it in the process, but it will be clean!

What’s your biggest job perk? Flexibility to run errands during the day, meet clients for lunch, or conduct business at a local winery. I love being out and about during the weekday.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally? Wally’s Pizza Bar. They have great hummus, and the pizzas are wonderful and unique; best of all, the folks who work there are all so nice.

What’s your favorite local business other than your own? Massage Envy.

If you could be in any other profession, what would it be?

Why is your staff the best in the business? All of our staff is highly skilled in food, beverage, and event planning. They love the work we do and being part of joyous events every weekend.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of? My kids and grandkids.

I love real estate. Like many realtors, I got into it later, but I love the flexibility and customer satisfaction. We work with happy people during an exciting time in their lives.

What’s your hidden talent?

And finally, customer service is…?

And finally, customer service is…?

Happy customers! I go above and beyond to ensure each real estate transaction is a smooth and pleasant experience.

We are driven by guests’ experiences, and our success comes from that number one priority.

Juggling.
