RECEIVING A DIAGNOSIS OF CANCER CAN BE ONE OF LIFE’S most frightening moments. Patients need a healthcare facility that can put the latest science to work battling the malignancy and doing everything possible to promote a speedy, full recovery. And it is equally important to find support in dealing with the fear itself—and the other emotional, social and practical challenges the disease brings for patients and families. At Saint Barnabas Medical Center, we make it our mission to give cancer patients both the finest, safest clinical treatments and loving, compassionate care. That is our focus in the health pages of this issue. Providing the finest treatment depends on obtaining the most precise information. One tool for that task is the new 256-slice Revolution Computed Tomography (CT) scanner, which we introduce on page 44. It offers noninvasive imaging of the body that is quicker, safer and more comfortable than previous technology. We are proud to be the first medical center in New Jersey to offer this advanced, innovative scanner. Cancer of the lung remains one of the deadliest forms of the disease. But on page 42 you will read about the ways lung cancer treatment is rapidly advancing. Screening procedures for high-risk individuals help us spot malignancies early, when prospects for a cure are best. And treatment is enhanced by the latest in minimally invasive surgery techniques and “immunotherapy,” which puts the body’s own immune system to work against the malignancy. You will read about “precision medicine” on page 38. This exciting new field promises to transform cancer care, incorporating the newest therapies to target treatment to an individual’s unique genetic makeup. On page 40, a teenager shares her experience with successful treatment for skin cancer—and her warnings to avoid dangerous sun exposure. And the many psychosocial and other support services we provide for cancer patients and their families are explored on page 36. At Saint Barnabas Medical Center, we are here for you, as our commitment to top-quality cancer care shows. If someone in your family or network of friends is facing cancer—or if you are simply trying to maintain the best possible health and get the most out of life—we hope you will rely on us as a trusted resource.

EDITOR’S NOTE

PUSHING YOUR LIMITS

WITH ALL THE IMAGES THAT crossed my desk when planning The Home Issue of Morris/Essex Health & Life, I had plenty of opportunity to consider what makes design distinctive. While I haven’t boiled it down to a single secret, one key seemed to be the way the best designers and architects treated the physical limits they faced as inspiration rather than constraint. If you think about it, the principle applies in every art: A rhyme scheme liberates a poet’s imagination, and a painter is empowered by the way a twodimensional canvas draws foreground and background into intimate conversation. Creating an appropriate theme for a living room inside a Kinnelon home with a lakefront setting wasn’t easy for interior designer Veronica Pluta, particularly because the owner wanted to retain the existing charm while incorporating items like a large area rug. But she used the room’s other features—specifically the hand-carved wood—as inspiration and gave the space a dramatic-yetcomfortable lodge look. Read all about the project on page 52. If the space in your garden is already spoken for in terms of trees, shrubs and flowers, and you think there’s no room for an edible garden, think again. There are dozens of fruits, vegetables, herbs and other plants that are easy to grow and can thrive in small spaces. You can even grow your own blueberries! Turn to page 50 for the dirt on yard to table. Of course, there’s so much more local coverage in these pages. Learn how to make tiny sandwiches that can entertain a big crowd or how to incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery, into your home. Speaking of green, we also tell you in this issue where you can practice your tee shot before your next round of golf. Enjoy these and all the other articles in this issue. Perhaps some of them will serve as inspiration for your next endeavor.

DAWN GANGI, M.D. owner and medical director of Étoile Cosmetic Medicine Studio believes in the importance of giving back. Dr. Gangi has over 20 years of experience in women’s health and beauty. After beginning her career with a degree in Chemistry developing beauty and wellness products for the U.S. consumer market, she then studied and practiced medicine at several prestigious academic institutions. While doing her training at Yale-New Haven Hospital, she developed a women’s health track. Prior to focusing on cosmetic medicine, she practiced as a board-certified internist at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital, with an emphasis on women’s health. After extensive training in aesthetic medicine, Dr. Gangi established Étoile Cosmetic Medicine Studio in 2010, a patient-centered practice catering to each individual’s aesthetic needs in a caring and warm atmosphere. A largely, though not exclusively, female-based practice, Étoile offers Botox®, dermal fillers, lasers and many other skin treatments. More recently she has taken her knowledge and extensive experience outside of her practice, applying her skill and time to a special group of women. Given the growth and success of her practice along with a personal sense of responsibility to help others, Dr. Gangi is bringing her vision for Etoile “to help every woman look and feel her best” to the women of Mary’s Place By the Sea. Mary’s Place, in Ocean Grove, NJ, provides a place for women with cancer to stay as guests and receive restorative services—all free of charge. Étoile shares Mary’s Place’s vision to support women through physical, emotional and spiritual empowerment. Besides donating a portion of revenues during the month of May, Dr. Gangi and her staff travel to Mary’s Place to provide free skin treatments for guests. Étoile is also a proud sponsor of their 6th Annual Walk-A-Thon on May 20th.

DIY PIZZA If visiting a plain old pizzeria leaves you cold, make it an event with a trip to Uncle Maddio’s Pizza, which recently opened in East Hanover. Uncle Maddio’s customers create their own assemblyline style pies, choosing from three crusts (one glutenfree), six sauce options and 48 cheese, meat or veggie toppings. You talk directly to the pizza maker, so you can ask for “a little more of this,” or “a little less of that.” Or simply go for a signature pizza, such as the meaty Big Max or the Steak & Blue (grilled steak, blue cheese and more). You can also create your own salad or sandwich. During the pizzeria’s grand opening in March, it offered free slices and held a raffle to win a year of free pizza with all money benefiting Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Uncle Maddio’s Pizza, 346 Rt. 10 East, East Hanover, 973.884.1200; unclemaddios.com ’CUE TO-DO Chef Robert Austin Cho is on the move again. After the owner of Kimchi Smoke, the wildly popular Korean barbecue joint in Bergen County, asked his social media followers where they’d want a second location, he’s bringing his signature chonut (a glazed donut stuffed with smoked brisket topped with bacon, cheese and kimchi) and other smoked creations to Montclair. Get ready for plenty of full baby back ribs and pork spareribs! Although a date hadn’t been firmed up by press deadline, Cho says he hoped to open by the end of April, in time for the Montclair Film Festival. We’re eagerly counting down the days.

BILLIONAIRES AMONG US

At $423,400, Morris County has the state’s secondhighest median home value in the state (behind Bergen County), but half of the New Jersey residents who appear on this year’s Forbes billionaires list live in Essex County, where the median home value is a more moderate $362,600. But they don’t live just anywhere in Essex County. Two on the list are from Short Hills, where the median home value is $1,725,800. Another is from Millburn, where the median home value is $824,600. Take a look: John Overdeck, 47, of Millburn, is the co-founder of the hedge fund Two Sigma Investments. His net worth is $4.8 billion, placing him 339th out of the 2,043 billionaires ranked. Peter Kellogg, 74, of Short Hills, is an investor whose net worth is $3.5 billion. He was ranked 544th. Leon Cooperman, 73, of Short Hills, is the founder of the Omega Advisors hedge fund. He has a net worth of $3 billion, earning him the rank of 660.

CEDAR GROVE GETS GREENER The Essex County Park System, the first of its kind established in the country, is still growing strong 122 years later, having recently added 77 acres in Cedar Grove to its cache of 6,000 in the name of Robert J. O’Toole, the township’s retired three-term mayor. The new Essex County Cedar Grove Park, on the former site of the Essex County Hospital Center on Fairview Avenue, is the county’s fourth largest and features about two miles of walking paths, with historic lighting, a gazebo and benches. On Fairview’s eastern side is a 15,000-square-foot community center with a covered portico in front and covered patio in back. Four bocce courts and a playground designed with a farming theme lie adjacent to the center. The land was the last remaining parcel of the hospital center complex and was slated to be sold to a developer when, in 2008, county officials decided to preserve it as open space. The project was principally funded by a $5 million open space grant through the state’s Green Acres program. MORRIS/ESSEX HE ALTH & LIFE

LEGACY OF MUSIC If you haven’t made it to the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, chin up—the Prudential Center in Newark is bringing it to you. City officials recently announced a partnership between the venue and the Grammy Museum to develop “The Grammy Museum Experience” at the Prudential Center. The 8,000-square-foot exhibit will include a section hailing Grammy winners from New Jersey such Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston and Frank Sinatra. Its educational component will include an area that simulates performing live on-stage, a look behind the scenes in the recording process, and a rapping tutorial. The exhibit will also function as an arts and education center for area schools, which Christopher Cerf, state district superintendent for Newark Public Schools, says would provide a “profoundly meaningful experience for so many children.”

Readers rejoice

Good things come to those who wait, and fans of mystery writer Nancy Star are overjoyed over the recent release of the Montclair author’s new novel Sisters One, Two, Three. The book was years in the making—about nine years had passed since her last full-length novel. (She has been a contributing writer for various publications like The Washington Post and Family Circle.) Sisters reveals the deep secrets of the Tangle family, untangling a web of lies that started following an accident in Martha’s Vineyard and the untimely death of the girls’ mother. The story is a mix of heartbreak, humor and hope, and has been described by Publishers Weekly as “delightful, heart-wrenching and honest.” Star was scheduled to appear at Montclair Literary Festival earlier this month. Her next discussion and book signing is set for June 11 at the Paramus Public Library.

CODE CLASH

U.S. Postal Service to Kinnelon: ZIP it. For the fourth time, the USPS Northern District has rejected the community’s bid to separate itself from its neighbor, Butler, with a ZIP code it can call its own. Residents in both towns have long complained about problems caused by having the same ZIP code (07405), including the delivery of mail to the wrong residences and the existence of roadways that run through both municipalities—such as Keil and Boonton avenues—causing a number of duplicate addresses. In rejecting the request, USPS officials state that Kinnelon had not met its criteria, saying, “Code assignments are...linked to factors such as mail volume, delivery area size, geographic location and topography, but not necessarily to municipal or perceived community boundaries.” But Kinnelon Mayor Bob Collins isn’t about to mail it in, promising to appeal the decision.

See these sea turtles If you’ve ever participated in a polar plunge at the Jersey Shore, you know just how cold the ocean can get. So you can imagine how it feels to a Kemp’s ridley sea turtle that has failed to migrate south before the temperatures fall. The reptiles become “cold-stunned,” weakening with their loss of appetite and ultimately washing ashore with little or no help in sight. Until now. The Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange recently opened the Sea Turtle Recovery Unit to nurse the sick and injured sea turtles back to health with the goal of releasing them again in the wild. The unit had 10 sea turtles in its care in midMarch; in February, it released one in Florida. Now, you can see these turtles up close and personal. Zoo visitors can check out the new exhibit, watching the turtles rehabbing from a viewing room and educational center. And the zoo’s director, Brint Spencer, thinks they’ll be a real draw. “Sea turtles are about as cute a reptile as they get, so it will have a lot of public appeal,” he says.

GET INTO THE SWING Morris and Essex counties’ golf courses are open and ready for action, but that doesn’t mean your game is in tip-top shape. If your swing doesn’t feel quite right, it might be wise to get in some practice at a driving range. Luckily, both counties are home to several ranges where players of all skill levels can go through the motions of their drives, chips and even putts. Snag your sticks and head to one of these spots:

NICOLE MALINO

Going the extra mile A RANDOLPH WOMAN’S INITIATIVE AT WORK LEADS TO A SPECIAL PRIZE—AND A RENEWED DESIRE TO GIVE BACK. NICOLE MALINO HASN’T BOUGHT THE PLANE TICKETS YET, but a trip with her husband, Alex, and their two children—leaving her job as senior vice president of client services at Marketsmith in Cedar Knolls far behind—is in the cards. The couple from Randolph had been thinking of going to St. Lucia, but may “change course,” given the circumstances surrounding the trip’s funding. Malino’s trip is being financed by her company as a reward for her achievement in a five-month initiative promoting acts of kindness. She received $5,000 for placing second in “The Amazing Journey,” the brainchild of founder and CEO Monica C. Smith, which called on Marketsmith’s some 75 employees to rack up so-called “miles” by going the extra mile for themselves, co-workers, clients and members of the community at large. The initiative consisted of four categories: “Be a Better You,” “Do Good”, “Drive Revenue” and/or “Be Social.” Activities in each category were assigned a certain mileage—for example, three miles for referring talent, an additional 10 miles if that referral is hired; five miles for raising money for a cause; four miles for taking a course in any subject. After five months, the results were tallied, and Malino secured second place with 477 miles.

18

Most of Malino’s mileage—nearly 45 percent—fell into the social category, while she earned 27.5 percent by driving revenue, 24.6 percent for performing good deeds and 3.1 percent for personal improvement. Among other things, she took charge of the nails-and-face-painting rooms during the company’s Bring Dinner Home event at Camden Street School and came up with a new process to improve internal operations. For Malino, 40, who recently celebrated her second anniversary with Marketsmith, answering the company’s call to action brought many rewards, especially when it came to social media. She says she posted more frequently about the company and its strategies online, which in turn has raised public awareness about it. “It got people talking, posting, sharing,” she recalls. But it is the importance of the initiative’s other goals that has led her to reconsider her vacation destination, she says. Instead of St. Lucia, she and her husband now are leaning more toward a trip to Puerto Rico or Costa Rica, splitting their time between relaxation and providing humanitarian aid or participating in “some sort of mission.” Marketsmith’s mission: accomplished. —Trudy Walz

TALK OF THE TOWN

HOUSING COSTS

The median home value in Montclair is $622,600 and increased 8.9 percent over the past year, according to Zillow.

WELCOME TO

Montclair

A FUNKY, BOHEMIAN VIBE AND A QUICK COMMUTE TO NYC DRAW PEOPLE TO THIS BUSTLING BOROUGH. THOSE SEEKING A SUBURBAN COMMUNITY WITH the diversity and an arts scene of a more urban area will do well to look at Montclair, a bedroom community of 38,000 located just 12 miles west of New York City at the foot of the Watchung Mountains. The area was home to the Lenape Indians before English and Dutch settlers began establishing farms and building homes there in the late 17th century. It remained a rural hamlet until 1856, when the first railroad inaugurated regular service to the area. Soon people in the city began riding the train out to the “country,” and many businessmen decided to build homes there, commuting to their jobs in New York City. Today six railroad stations offer service to the city, and residents are attracted to the quick commute (which can be as fast as 30 minutes on the Midtown Direct). Because the town was laid out before the advent of the automobile, it is largely a walking city, with a picturesque, tree-lined downtown that offers a wide array of shops and restaurants. The main drag is

Bloomfield Avenue, but several other smaller shopping areas offer even more diversity in stores and food. And speaking of diversity, Montclair prides itself on its racial and socioeconomic mix, with roughly 27 percent of residents African American and 62 percent white, with an increasing Asian and Hispanic population. A varied housing stock helps preserve the diversity in wealth, with large Victorians, Tudors and colonials sharing space with apartment buildings and more modest clapboard homes. The arts scene is eclectic and includes the Montclair Art Museum, Studio Montclair Inc., a community theater troop called the Studio Players, the Wellmont Theater and the Montclair Film Festival, now in its sixth year. Montclair boasts a school district with seven elementary schools, three middle schools and one high school. Those looking for a private education can attend Montclair Kimberley Academy, a school for pre-K through 12th grade. The township also has two libraries and a large public university, Montclair State.

FAST FACTS

n There are 48 sites in Montclair listed on the National Register

of Historic Places, the second most of any municipality in New Jersey (behind only Newark). n The township lies on the east side of the First Mountain of the Watchung Mountains, and some higher points in town provide great views of the surrounding area and the New York City skyline. n Montclair has the 13th highest property taxes in the state of New Jersey. n Celebrities Patrick Wilson, Kim Zimmer, Stephen Colbert (pictured) and Bobbi Brown live in Montclair, as well as many members of the media, including Jonathan Alter, Jim Axelrod, Ian Frazier, and Andrew Rosenthal.

DINING

The New York Times once called Montclair “the state’s most food-obsessed town,” and with more than 100 restaurants, it’s easy to see why. From amazing bakeries like the Montclair Bread Company and Gina’s Bakery to upscale dinner options like Fascino (pictured), Corso 98 and Laurel & Sage, there’s something for everyone in this foodie mecca. If you’re in the mood for brunch, try Raymond’s or Toast. If grabbing a pint while enjoying some fish and chips is more your speed, try Egan & Sons. More exotic eats include Samba for Brazilian, Cuban Pete’s for Cuban, Costanera for Peruvian and Mesob for Ethiopian.

MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME

$99,105 according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s latest statistics.

ARTS SCENE

SCREEN TIME

THE MONTCLAIR FILM FESTIVAL ISN’T JUST A FILM FESTIVAL ANYMORE. Having grown from a small community festival six years ago into a thriving non-profit organization that offers year-round events and classes, they’ve recently rebranded as Montclair Film. And this month, the organization will move into its own building on Bloomfield Avenue, a space donated by Investors Bank in 2015, which will house administrative offices, an education center, a production lab, a recording booth and space for screenings, public programs and parties. The education center is especially welcome news for aspiring filmmakers of all ages who can take classes in things like screenwriting, video editing, special effects, improv—even filmmaking 101. “It’s going to be really exciting to have a new home to showcase our programs and all the incredible talent in this community,” says education director Sue Hollenberg. “The new center will have all the tools that we need for filmmaking, like editing stations, cameras and sound equipment. We’re also really excited about our storytelling studio, which is a sound booth where we can do podcasts. And then we’ll also have access to the screening area, where students can showcase their work and perform.” This summer, Montclair Film + Education (as the education arm of the organization is now known) will offer its inaugural Summer Academy for students in middle school and high school that will feature eight weeks of workshops covering everything from screenwriting to documentary filmmaking. Montclair Film + Education also does a lot of work with students in local schools in addition to the classes offered to the public. For this year’s Spotlight Series, an effort to use film to educate students and the public about important social issues, the group focused on climate change and brought speakers and art workshops to students at the Montclair Cooperative School and Montclair High School. “The students are creating a huge public art installation out of plastic bottles that’s going to be two or three stories high,” says Hollenberg. “All of this culminates at the festival where we will have the art installation, a reception for the students and then they will watch a film on climate change. It’s a really cool program that we hope to take into more schools. It’s something we are passionate about.” Emerging filmmakers in grades 4 through 12 are competing now to have their work showcased during the main event, the sixth annual Montclair Film Festival, which will take place April 28 to May 7. The festival kicks off with a screening of STEP, a documentary about a step dancing team in Baltimore, and is followed by an opening night party at the Wellmont Theater. Boldfaced names are sure to be in attendance—bigwigs like Richard Curtis, Jonathan Alter, Stephen Colbert, Jonathan Demme, Richard Gere, Norman Reedus and Rob Reiner have attended the festival in the past.

THERE IS LIFE after divorce and our pledge is to get you there.”

A Family Lawyer Who Aspires to Putting Family First Counted among New Jersey’s Top 100 lawyers, William M. Laufer, Esq. heads a boutique family law practice upholding the best interests of the entire family unit. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A BOUTIQUE FAMILY LAW PRACTICE? We consider what’s best for the entire family as opposed to simply the divorce process. Divorce is gender conscious involving relationships between men, women and their children. What distinguishes our practice is the assignment of both genders to every case giving clients the benefit of well-rounded perspectives and solid teamwork. I am an advocate of mediation, but when necessary I am a fierce, but compassionate litigator. WHAT GIVES YOU THE GREATEST SENSE OF PRIDE? Building a stellar law practice is undoubtedly a proud achievement, but I am at heart a dedicated family man. Married 35 years, together my wife and I have raised four accomplished daughters passionate about advancing our communities. My success as a family lawyer is a reflection of my family devotion.

WHAT IS ONE LESSON YOU HOPE TO PASS ALONG TO YOUR PARTNERS AND ASSOCIATES? Each of the 15 members of the firm are encouraged to get involved in the community, especially organizations serving the best interests of children. I believe wholeheartedly in ensuring the health and education of our youth. I work tirelessly in these efforts in organizations including D.A.R.E. New Jersey, New Jersey Special Olympics and recently, Goryeb Children’s Hospital. TO WHAT DO YOU OWE YOUR YEARS OF SUCCESS? A 40year practice is a significant milestone. In today’s market with constant turnover, the fact that each of my partners has been with me since the day they started practicing law, resonates a strong message. We remain a dedicated family of professionals even in light of the complex, emotional work we do.

Creating Beauty through Science A double board-certified plastic surgeon and medical pioneer, Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi practices with a caring heart and gets the results. TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AND PRACTICE? I’m in practice over 35 years performing reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and body.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT ASAADI PLASTIC SURGERY? One of the most challenging and highly specialized areas of plastic surgery today involves the lower blepharoplasty (eyelids) and correction of the festoons or malar bags. The lower eyelids can become puffy due to age, medical conditions, diet or even allergies contributing to a worn, tired look. We have

WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX? I love Soul Cycle. Spinning relieves a lot of stress – it’s a great workout. I have an office in New York City as well as West Orange so I take advantage of Soul Cycle’s Short Hills or New York locations. I also enjoy yoga and Pilates as ways to decompress. When I can, I take to the slopes to ski.

WHAT IS ONE OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS FOR WHICH YOU ARE MOST PROUD? As head of the Department of Plastic Surgery at St. Barnabas, I organize Educational Symposiums several times a year. Some of the meetings show live surgeries performed by prominent guest plastic surgeons around the world. Through the exchange of ideas about these complex, sometimes multifaceted procedures, we advance the profession.

Where Art and Aesthetics Meet Medicine As the first Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist in New Jersey, Marie Barbuto is one of the leading practitioners in the field of non-surgical aesthetics, medical and cosmetic micropigmentation (tattooing). WHAT ARE YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENTS? I specialize in skin rejuvenation therapies in promoting good skin health and use best practices in anti-aging treatments. The real reward for me comes from my unique work in cosmetic and medical tattooing which includes creating realistic hair-stroke eyebrows for those with alopecia or hair loss from chemotherapy, scar camouflage and offering 3-D nipple/areola tattooing for breast cancer survivors. HOW DID YOU COME TO THIS LINE OF WORK? I’m a registered nurse with an art background and keen aesthetic eye; it was simply a marriage of the two. There’s a great sense of accomplishment helping to restore confidence due to a serious health issue, a life changing event or adjusting to the aging process. Through my gift of artistry and medical training, patients have a renewed sense of self. Bestowing joy never grows old.

“PART OF CARING FOR A PATIENT—BEYOND CHEMOTHERAPY, RADIATION AND SURGERY—IS ENHANCING HIS OR HER OVERALL WELLNESS AND THAT OF THE FAMILY.” —ALISON GRANN, M.D. ARE ANY THREE WORDS SCARIER THAN “You have cancer”? Angela McCabe doesn’t think so. For 30+ years she’s been helping cancer patients and their families handle the social, emotional, financial and spiritual problems the disease can bring. As director of psychosocial support services and community outreach for the Cancer Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, McCabe knows that cancer isn’t just malignant cells attacking normal ones. It’s a multi-front war that can rock your life and that of your family in several ways. Fortunately, there’s help— and that’s her expertise. A cancer diagnosis can be “physically and emotionally exhausting,” says Alison Grann, M.D., chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Saint Barnabas. “Part of caring for a patient—beyond chemotherapy, radiation and surgery—is enhancing his or her overall wellness and that of the family. To patients I say, ‘There are many resources available for you.’ Then I give them Angela’s card.” Dealing with the disease’s potential emotional and social impact is key, says McCabe, who came to Barnabas Health in 1996 from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “Oncology social workers are knowledgeable about cancer and about the psychosocial and other effects of disease, treatment and survivorship,” she explains. “We can help patients

sort through feelings of helplessness or hopelessness.” And while free services may be obtained before, during or after treatment, she adds, “early intervention really helps. We evaluate people as early as possible and help cancer survivors maintain or improve their quality of life.” Free of charge, McCabe’s program offers: Individual and family counseling. Oncology social workers help patients and families cope with emotional, social and practical concerns related to having a cancer diagnosis, and this includes financial concerns. “The unspoken stress of cancer is the financial burden,” McCabe says. “We ask about finances and employment-related issues, and we can offer concrete ways to help avert crises.” Nutrition counseling. Eating right is critical because a healthy diet can help rebuild the body’s cells, especially during chemotherapy or radiation treatment. We have a dedicated dietitian available to meet with patients and families. Individualized cancer wellness program. This combines exercise, yoga, massage therapy and nutrition to improve the health and well-being of individuals facing cancer. “The focus is on working to stay as fit as you can through treatment,” McCabe says. “Even just walking may help with treatment side effects.” Genetic counseling. People with a personal or family history of cancer are helped to understand their familial risks. Inherited factors are assessed, with detailed education about cancer prevention and detection and the opportunity for genetic testing when appropriate. Art therapy. A board-certified art therapist offers sessions for patients of all ages and artistic abilities. Creative selfexpression has been shown to reduce pain and anxiety in cancer patients, increase coping skills and promote self-

esteem, feelings of empowerment and personal growth. Holistic nurse services. For many, these complementary services can ease the pain of the illness or treatment side effects. A certified holistic nurse teaches Reiki, reflexology, guided imagery and breathing meditation. Spiritual counseling. Regardless of a person’s faith, tradition or culture, illness can raise a lot of spiritual questions. Our chaplains are trained as supportive listeners and can help patients explore their spiritual needs. Support groups. Group sessions bring together those who are dealing with cancer so they can share experiences and coping techniques and decrease the sense of isolation. Boutique services. This program is offered in collaboration with the Just for You Center (wig, mastectomy and accessory salon), which offers specialized products to improve the quality of life for patients and their families. McCabe and her social work team provide individual and family counseling either in their private offices or in the treatment areas. The art therapist and holistic nurse have studios in the Cancer Center. “Patients are free to access some, all, or none of these services. Some people prefer art, some do Reiki and guided imagery; different modalities help different people,” she says. Dr. Grann says perhaps as many as two-thirds of her patients use at least one of the psychosocial support services. “They really help in the journey and in healing, and some continue even after treatment,” she says. “Doctors tend to focus on the disease itself, but there are many components to being a patient, and every patient has his or her own way of healing and processing. I think these services are one of the strongest parts of our cancer program.”

Now it’s PERSONAL IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS, A DOCTOR SAYS, THERAPIES TARGETED TO ONE’S INDIVIDUAL GENETIC MAKEUP WILL CHANGE THE FACE OF CANCER CARE. TOMORROW’S CANCER CARE, EXPERTS SAY, WILL INCREASINGLY rely on targeted prevention and treatment plans that use mapping of the genome to apply what works best for a person’s genetic makeup. And tomorrow’s almost here. You’ve probably read about precision medicine. “It’s the future of cancer care,” says Michael Scoppetuolo, M.D., Saint Barnabas Cancer Center’s chief medical officer. Genome sequencing breakthroughs at the turn of the 21st century, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration explains, helped turn precision medicine from a concept into a reality. “Rapid developments in genomics, together with advances in a number of other areas, such as computational biology, medical imaging and regenerative medicine, are creating the possibility for scientists to develop tools to truly personalize diagnosis and treatment,” according to the FDA’s website. Dr. Scoppetuolo is the first to admit that this “game changer” is “just in its infancy right now.” About two dozen FDA-approved drugs are designed to work in this way, he says, and lung cancer treatments have led the way. (See “Lung Cancer: 4 Rays of Hope,” page 42.) “Much of the early research came from the lung cancer experience,” he says. But treatment of other cancers is benefiting too. For instance, a gene that plays a part in about 20 percent of breast cancer cases can now be targeted with a medication that inhibits its action. “It blocks the receptor on the surface of the cancer cell that is expressed by this gene, and that kills the cancer,” says the doctor. Other new drugs treat leukemia, colon cancer and melanoma. A recent report from a group called the Personalized Medicine Coalition shows that for the past three years, precision medicines accounted for more than 20 percent of the new molecular entities approved by the FDA. And a lot more drugs are in the pipeline. “There are hundreds more currently in trial,” says Dr. Scoppetuolo. Some of those trials are being conducted at Saint Barnabas, including a joint trial with the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Currently, precision medicine is approved as a treatment option only after other avenues have been shown to be ineffective. The main reason is the medications’ high cost. “The average cost is about $10,000 a month,” Dr.

Scoppetuolo says. Often insurers won’t pay for these drugs, and when they do there may be a copay that puts them out of reach for many patients. At Saint Barnabas, counselors work with the insurance companies to find ways to lower these costs. Another option is to enter a trial, which is paid for by the drug’s manufacturer. Over time, as new medications continue to come to market and are proven effective, insurers will become more amenable to coverage, the doctor predicts. Prices will come down, and a 2013 article in The Hugo Journal, an official publication of the Human Genome Organization, argued that precision medicine will “lower overall healthcare costs.” How? By steering away from blind alleys, helping “to identify the right drug for the right patient at the right time, avoiding the prescription of costly and ineffective drugs and preventing potentially harmful side effects.” Before long, precision medicines are expected to move from lastditch options to so-called first-line treatments. Already, patients who have few good chemotherapy choices Michael can be tested for gene mutations Scoppetuolo, M.D. for which current drugs may block a gene’s expression. Someday soon, says Dr. Scoppetuolo, a drug may be used before the cancer ever surfaces. The approved precision medicine drugs have come on the scene in the last five years. The next five may just bring a small revolution. Says the doctor: “I really feel that precision medicine will supplant chemotherapy as we now know it.”

THE POWER OF PRECISION MEDICINE A report from the Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC) says precision medicine can make patients healthier while lowering health care costs. It documents a 62 percent increase since 2012 in the number of precision medicines on the market and reports benefits that include: n S hifting the emphasis in medicine from reaction to prevention. n D irecting targeted therapy and reducing trial-anderror prescribing. n Reducing adverse drug reactions. n R evealing additional targeted uses for medicines and drug candidates.

n Increasing patient adherence to treatment. n Reducing high-risk invasive testing procedures. n Helping control the overall cost of health care. The report also states that unclear regulatory guidelines and ongoing challenges related to reimbursement and clinical adoption continue to make it difficult for health care systems around the world to reap the benefits of precision medicine. Still, “precision medicine offers an unprecedented opportunity to deliver medical care that is more efficient and effective,” says PMC President Edward Abrahams, Ph.D.

‘A tan’s not worth it’ THIS TEEN THOUGHT SHE WAS INDESTRUCTIBLE, BUT SOMEONE FORGOT TO TELL THE SUN.

LIKE MANY TEENAGERS, Emily Christiansen wanted a summer tan. She never thought she’d get skin cancer. But she did—and today she wants to warn other teens about the dangers of overexposure to the sun’s harmful rays. Christiansen, of Newton, now a 22-yearFranz Smith, M.D. old Monmouth University graduate, had more overexposure than most—she’s been a summer lifeguard at various pools and camps since she was 15. “I treated my skin so badly,” she says. “Girls my age want to get tan, and I wouldn’t put on enough sunblock. I would get burned every year, and I didn’t protect my skin.

“TREATMENTS ARE RAPIDLY EVOLVING.” —FRANZ SMITH, M.D. As a teen you think you’re invincible.” A skin check in 2015 revealed that she wasn’t: a dermatologist found a lesion on her upper back that was progressing toward melanoma, the most dangerous skin cancer. There was no family history of the disease, and even though Christiansen has red hair—a prime risk factor for skin cancer—she also has brown eyes and darker skin than most redheads. “I am not the average ginger; my skin tans well,” she says. “I was incredibly surprised and scared.” That lesion was removed, and the next summer she was much more careful in the sun, wearing protective hats, shirts and lots of sunscreen. Yet in 2016 her dermatologist found another lesion on the back of her left leg. This was a melanoma; it required a two-and-a-half-inch incision to remove. “I was traumatized,” she says. “It will leave a scar forever. That really opened my eyes. Imagine if it was on my face—it would look horrible!” More important, it could have spread over her body. “Melanoma is the top malignancy in young women,” says Franz Smith, M.D., a board-certified surgical oncologist and skin cancer expert at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Of the approximately 3 million new cases of skin cancer every year, less than 1 percent are melanoma, he says. “But it’s the most aggressive type, and it’s responsible for the majority of skin-cancer deaths.” Sun exposure is the primary risk factor for melanoma, and the fact that skin cancer is on the rise in young people suggests that “they’re not heeding the advice that prevention is important, and that there is no such thing as a good tan,” Dr. Smith says. There is also increasing use of tanning beds, which many believe are safe but are not. “We have to dispel that myth,” Dr. Smith says. Especially here in New Jersey, which has more tanning beds per capita than any other state, says Moira Davis, the nurse navigator for Saint Barnabas’s Melanoma Screening Program. This May, the program is teaming up

with area dermatologists to offer free skin-cancer screenings as part of an American Academy of Dermatology program called Melanoma Mondays. “We will offer screenings on other days as well,” Davis says, “primarily at the AtkinsKent Building at 101 Old Short Hills Rd.” (Registration is required; see below for details.) “Dermatologists are volunteering their time,” she says. Patients will get a copy of the results, and if a suspicious lesion is discovered, Davis will provide patients with a list of dermatologists and follow up to make sure they have made an appointment. If someone requires surgery, she helps coordinate appointments with surgeons, social workers, oncologists/ immunotherapists and the patient’s primary care physician. “Treatments are rapidly evolving,” says Dr. Smith. “There have been significant advancements in the past five to 10 years. There were limited options for melanoma a few years ago, but now we have specific antibodies to enhance the immune system to fight the disease. There are also targeted therapies for specific mutations, which slow the development of melanoma based on the mutation. It is all very promising.” But the emphasis, he says. should remain on prevention, screening and early detection. “Fortunately, Emily’s dermatologist saw suspicious moles, which were treated surgically, and she is cured,” he says. But she is still at risk for other melanomas in the future, because of her habits in the past. Meanwhile, Christiansen has changed her ways. Her lifeguard position this summer will be as an aquatics coordinator, keeping her out of the sun more. And she will be more vigilant about using sunscreen, wearing sunglasses and a hat, and being more mindful of the other things she can do to reduce her risk. “A tan looks nice, but it’s not worth putting your skin at risk,” she tells other teens and young adults. “I am not a pale girl, I had no history, and I still ended up with cancer.”

Save your skin! In 2016, 315 people were screened for skin cancer at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, with these results: n7  5 biopsies were recommended. n 109 people were referred to dermatologists.

IN GOOD HEALTH CANCER OF THE LUNG IS ONE OF THE DISEASE’S MOST virulent forms, but four new options available to patients today— screening, minimally invasive surgery, precision medicine and immunotherapy—are good news for patients: SCREENING They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; nowhere is that truer than with lung cancer. Recently enacted guidelines offer screening options for smokers to catch lung cancer at its earliest stages, when it is best treated. Screening for adults age 55 and older with a history of smoking, using a low-dose computed tomography (CT) scan, has been shown to help identify cancers much earlier than before. Bridget Saggese, the nurse navigator at the Saint Barnabas Lung Cancer Institute, oversees the screening process at the hospital. Last year, the program identified nine patients with stage 1 cancer. “When an abnormal finding is identified, my role is to expedite the care of the patient from diagnosis to treatment,” she says. Those nine patients have all received treatment and are doing well, she reports.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY Patients with early-stage cancers have new surgical options, says Subroto Paul, M.D., director of thoracic surgery for RWJBarnabas Health. “We used to do open surgery, in which the ribs are separated so that instruments can be introduced into the chest to take out cancer,” he says. “Now we can do video-assisted surgery, which is analogous to laparoscopic surgery. We use smaller incisions to put a camera in, find the tumor and remove it. Studies for which I have been the primary author show that this approach can mean less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker return to normal living.” These techniques also allow those who cannot tolerate a big, open operation to consider surgical treatment.

PRECISION MEDICINE The biggest advances, however, have been in treatments for advanced cases. “We have entered an era of precision medicine, especially in lung cancer,” says Andrew Brown, M.D., an oncologist who is medical director of the Lung Cancer Screening Program at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. “It’s a paradigm shift.” Precision medicine describes today’s ability to look at the cells from a tumor biopsy to identify an individual’s specific genetic mutations that could be linked to the cancer itself. “That has made possible medications that target these specific mutations and, in many cases, can shut them down like a lock and key. It has been fairly groundbreaking.” There are currently two FDA-approved medications for these types of cancers, but many more are being used in research trials, including at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. IMMUNOTHERAPY In another major advance, the body’s own immune system can now be primed, with medication, to combat the cancer itself, in the same way it fights off viruses and bacteria. “This is changing the way we think about lung cancer and how it behaves,” Dr. Brown says. Scientists have been studying immunotherapy for decades, he says, “but just recently have we developed therapies that actually use it.” Two medications are currently approved for this, Opdiva and Keytruda. But “plenty more are coming down the road,” he says. For now, precision medicine and immunotherapy are only approved for advance-stage cancer patients, and while they extend life and greatly reduce the side effects of other treatments, they are not curative. But trials are also under way to determine whether these drugs improve rates of actual cure for earlierstage patients. Dr. Brown is optimistic. “I feel confident that this is the future for all lung cancer patients, and it’s pretty close to happening,” he says. “Nothing is FDAapproved now, but it’s coming fast, within the next 10 years. This is still a very difficult disease, but we’re getting better at treating it. It’s a very exciting time.”

Should you be screened for lung cancer? The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends annual screening for lung cancer with low-dose computed tomography in adults ages 55 to 80 who have a 30 pack-year smoking history (that is, 30 years of 1-pack-a-day smoking, or 15 years of 2 packs a day, etc.) and currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years. Screening should be discontinued once a person has not smoked for 15 years or develops a health problem that substantially limits life expectancy or the ability or willingness to have curative lung surgery. Free screenings are available through the Saint Barnabas Medical Center Lung Cancer Institure. To schedule a screening call 973.322.6644 SOURCE: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force

Screening can be a lifesaver In 2016, the Saint Barnabas Medical Center Lung Screening Program screened 296 individuals. Of them, n 225 were scheduled for oneyear follow-up. n 326 were scheduled for twoyear follow-up. n 9 were diagnosed with Stage 1 lung cancer. n 1 was diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer. n 155 received tobacco cessation treatment.  SOURCE: RWJBarnabas Health

‘REVOLUTION’ in CT scanning

SAINT BARNABAS MEDICAL CENTER IS THE FIRST HOSPITAL IN NEW JERSEY TO OFFER THIS ‘BEST IN CLASS’ TECHNOLOGY. “IT’S LIKE GETTING A TESLA!” That’s how Christopher F. Freer, D.O., Chairman of the Emergency Department at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, describes the hospital’s acquisition of its newest piece of technology. It’s called the 256-slice GE Revolution computed tomography (CT) scanner. More than 70 million CT scans are done each year in the U.S., helping physicians to provide a fast and definitive diagnosis. This noninvasive and expedient look inside the body at organs, soft tissues, vascular structures and bones uses X-rays to generate very high resolution images of the body. The 256-slice Revolution CT scanner, made by GE Healthcare, takes such scans to new levels of speed, accuracy, comfort and safety for patients. “It’s the latest and the greatest,” Dr. Freer says. The machine is technically known as a 256-slice CT scanner. The more “slices,” or images, the scanner takes, the more quickly and effectively it reveals the area of the body being examined. “This scanner is able to take images of the entire body within seconds, greatly reducing the time of the scan,” says Alan Garten, M.D., chairman of the Department of Radiology. In fact, it can take an image of the entire heart in one heartbeat, says Gary Rogal, M.D., chief of Cardiology “And it does so with the lowest possible exposure to radiation, reducing the dosage significantly with the same image quality,” he says. “We are now able to diagnose more patients with, for example, erratic or high heartbeats because of its speed and precision.” Speed is especially important when a patient is thought to be having a stroke. Stroke specialists like

to say, “time is brain”—the longer a stroke remains untreated, the more brain tissue is potentially lost. For many strokes, administering the clot-busting drug tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) can restore blood flow and preserve brain tissue, but the drug must be given within about three hours of the stroke’s onset to work. “A fast diagnosis means that we can make decisions more quickly about recommended treatments,” says Danielle Haskins M.D., medical director of the Saint Barnabas Comprehensive Stroke Center. “Even a couple minutes can mean the difference between life and death, or between living independently and living in a nursing home.” To further enhance speed, the new scanner is located in the Emergency Department.“That alone can shave several minutes off our time to administer tPA,” Dr. Haskins says. “That can have a significant impact on recovery potential.” Along with speed, the quality of the images is substantially better for a quick look at how blood is flowing to various parts of the brain, she adds. “Blood flow imaging is typically our biggest difficulty. It determines if the patient needs to go to the catheterization lab for surgical clot removal or if it can be treated with medication alone,” she says. The ED sees numerous patients each week for evaluation of an acute stroke that occurred within the previous few hours. “We are very excited to get this scanner,” says Dr. Haskins. “It increases our efficiency and improves the potential for helping people. We’re always working to improve speed and access to care, and this will be a tremendous asset.”

It will also make a difference for patients with other medical issues. The scanner allows healthcare providers to scan, along with the heart and brain, other organs such as the liver and pancreas, in 0.28 seconds. It gives pediatric patients the option of low-dose scanning without the sedatives often required to relax them for longer scan times. The CT Scanner can produce detailed bone imaging, even for patients with metal implants. Patients will be more comfortable during scans as well. “Because of this scanner’s speed, patients may not be required to take special medication to slow their heart rate for a diagnostic cardiac exam,” Dr. Rogal says. Those with claustrophobia or anxiety issues will be in and out much faster. In addition, the scanner is significantly quieter than previous scanners. The Revolution CT provides soft ambient lighting

and personalized displays within the machine. It is big enough to comfortably accommodate individuals up to 675 pounds. “As a bariatric center, when we had patients over our previous weight limit, we had to send them elsewhere, so this is a great benefit,” Dr. Freer says. “We are proud to be the first medical center in New Jersey to offer this advanced and revolutionary CT scanner,” says Stephen P. Zieniewicz, FACHE, president and CEO of Saint Barnabas. “The addition of this superior technology emphasizes our commitment to ensuring that our physicians and patients have access to the most innovative technologies that facilitate the safest quality care for our patients and their families. It’s important for our whole RWJBarnabas Health system. I’d like to thank Ms. Helene Kosloski, a generous donor, for her support of this important technology.”

THE CREATIVE USE OF TILE MAKES A NEW HOME IN SHORT HILLS STAND OUT TO URBAN BUYERS. By Trudy Walz Photography by Andrew Pitzer IF MANHATTAN REALLY IS WHERE YOU WOULD rather be, you would likely feel right at home in the $4.5 million custom-built, seven-bedroom colonial in Short Hills that not long ago Maria Cappello gave a signature look. Cappello, the co-owner of Mediterranean Tile in Fairfield and Bernardsville, says the home was, in fact, designed with Manhattanites in mind, with a sleek, contemporary transitional feel. And, she says, the materials used in its construction had to meet the builder’s demand for “quality product to get the most value.” All the way down to the tiniest 1-inch-by-1-inch glass mosaic tile. In designing the tile work for the kitchen, Cappello took her cues from its open floor plan which makes it appear “very spacious” and brings in a lot of light. In counterpoint, Cappello went dark with 9-inch-by-18-inch special-cut, The kitchen in the seven-bedroom colonial is permeated by a transitional contemporary “Manhattan” feel, says Maria Cappello of Mediterranean Tile. In the kitchen, she installed a black honed slate on the floor and complemented it with a black-and-white poured glass tile on the backsplash.

black, honed slate on the floors. To offset the brick lay on the floor, she applied hand-made, poured-glass tiles, measuring 2 inches by 8 inches, in black and white on the backsplash. Cappello explains that the design and its placement “make it look like it’s flowing.” It also makes the kitchen workspace appear larger than it really is. Just off the kitchen was another room requiring attention to detail—a formal powder room. For this 6-footby-5-foot space, Cappello chose marble flooring with a circle waterjet pattern in pale blues, taupes and grays to give it a “simple, classic” look. In the guest bathroom on the floor above, white and soft grays meld on the 12-inch-by-24-inch “rice” marble tiles, which were stacked to make the floor space appear larger. In the 5-foot-by-3-foot shower, the 2-inch-by-2inch mosaic tile on the floor and overhead complement the larger tiles in the main space. The shower area is then surrounded by the1-inch-by-1-inch glass mosaic tiles on the walls in tones of muted aubergine, grays and taupes. The design combination, Cappello says, shows “how a large tile on the bathroom floor and small tiles on the shower wall can play together very well.”

WANT TO RAMP UP YOUR ANTIOXIDANT intake, boost your health and feel more energized? Integrate a few select superfoods into your diet. We’ve chosen five nutrient-dense dynamos that are easily grown in a home garden and fare well in our region. Most of these superfoods don’t take up a lot of square footage in the garden, and they’ll also thrive in outdoor containers or inside on a windowsill. Taking vitamin-rich produce from garden to table gives you the freshest food available, with the greatest possible health benefits. “There is something peaceful and rewarding in growing your own food in the backyard,” says North Jersey-based farmer Ron Binaghi. “We have so many processed foods in our diet and an equal number of health issues. Growing true, clean food on your own has huge health benefits.”

ever, most people lump tomatoes in with vegetables—and for good reason. They are packed with vitamin C and other antioxidants, which can fight free radicals that lead to cancer. Lycopene (which gives tomatoes their vibrant red color) is a particularly powerful antioxidant that can reduce the risk of cancer, keep your eyes and heart healthy, and even boost brain power. Late spring and early summer are the best times to plant tomatoes since they thrive in warmth and sunlight. Make sure to plant them in a spot where they can get plenty of sun (six to eight hours is ideal) and water them regularly. Keep in mind that tomatoes need plenty of room to grow, and that they also need to be supported as they grow away from the ground by a trellis or cage of some sort.

A BERRY WITH BIG BENEFITS

Parsley, best known as a garnish, is delicious when blended into pesto and chimichurri sauce, or chopped into an array of soups and salads. Loaded with iron and vitamins C, A, K and B-12, parsley may help relieve joint pain, and some studies show it can inhibit tumor formation. Parsley seeds are slow to sprout. To give them a boost before planting, cover in warm water and let stand overnight. It likes moist, nutrient-rich soil and does best in partial shade or full sun. Parsley is easy to grow in indoor pots or out in the garden and can be harvested about four times during the year until late November. Mint is a nutritional superstar that will amp up your smoothies. Other uses? Stir fresh mint into hot or iced tea, or snip into Mediterranean salads, dips and entrees. Mint is loaded with antioxidants and is a natural antimicrobial agent and breath

Blueberries grow well locally and are chock-full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. A hardy blueberry patch will yield bounty for years to come, and kids love to pick the berries every summer. Spring is the ideal time to plant blueberry bushes. For best results, choose a sunny spot with acidic soil that has been amended with organic material, like peat moss. Add two to four inches of mulch to protect the shallow roots, and water regularly. Fertilize about one month after planting. Finally, blueberries are catnip for birds, so be sure to cover your bushes with netting.

THIS FRUIT IS THE IDEAL VEGGIE It may surprise you to learn that tomatoes fall into the category of fruit, because they contain seeds. Nutritionally, how-

freshener. High in chlorophyll, fresh peppermint helps reduce inflammation in the gut and soothes an upset stomach. So much so that it’s sometimes used to bring relief to patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Mint spreads rapidly in the garden. To control the creep, plant in a confined outdoor space or a container.

SUPER SEEDS AND SPROUTS More than ever, nutritionists are touting the benefits of seeds and sprouts. Chia can be eaten in both forms. Chia seeds, which have a mild, nutty flavor, can be eaten whole—sprinkled on cereal or yogurt, mixed into vegetable or rice dishes, added to sauces, or baked into muffins. Sprouted chia has even more vitamins and minerals and is a tasty addition to salads, soups and sandwiches. Chia sprouts are tiny workhorses, high in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, antioxidants, calcium and magnesium. Chia sprouts grow happily in a sunny indoor spot. (Remember the Chia Pet?) Use the sprinkle-sprouting method: Add equal amounts of chia seeds and bottled spring or filtered water to a shallow glass baking dish. After an hour, tilt the dish to pour out the water, leaving behind the moistened chia seeds. Cover the tray with foil or a plastic lid to trap in the moisture, but leave one corner open. Keep the seeds in a warm place. After about four days, they’ll sprout into seedlings, and when they’re about onehalf inch long, it’s time to taste! Leftovers? No problem—you can store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator for two weeks. One caveat: If you’re taking bloodpressure medications or blood thinners, ask your doctor before eating chia, which can interact negatively with some of those medicines. MORRIS/ESSEX HE ALTH & LIFE

THE LODGE LOOK

A KINNELON HOME IS INFUSED WITH ELEMENTS THAT BEFIT ITS BUCOLIC LAKEFRONT SETTING. BY TRUDY WALZ PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRIS MARKSBURY

WHEN VERONICA PLUTA CONCEIVED THE DESIGN of the living room in the French chateau nestled in the hills of Smoke Rise in Kinnelon, she was faced with an embarrassment of riches. There was the lakefront home’s lush and verdant setting. There was a large area rug the owners wanted to keep. There was the shell of the room itself, a 20-footby-24-foot space wrapped in hand-carved wood by a

The living room in the French chateau in Kinnelon came gift-wrapped in wood by a local craftsman. Interior designer Veronica Pluta drew inspiration from the home’s setting but also played to the shape of the fireplace opening and the colors of the rug.

The shape of the sofa, left, repeats the silhouette of the fireplace opening, while also connecting with the colors of the fireplace’s marble insert and the carpet. The leather swivel chairs and leather look of the oversized coffee table reinforce the lodge aesthetic the designer was seeking.

local craftsman. And there was history—the family of six referred to it as “the Christmas room.” So Pluta, an interior designer with White House Living in Wayne and White House Lux in Fairfield, decided to put the “lodge” into their lodgings. “It was really inspired by bringing the outdoors in,” she says. Yet, “I really wanted the color tones of Christmas—greens, golds, plaids, herringbone.” And yes, even a few whimsical nods to life beyond its doors—with the small pheasant embroidery on the fabric of the sofa, deer antlers-turnedcandleholders on the coffee table and antique chairs dramatically upholstered in a brown-and-beige check with a pheasant-feather overlay that brings it into the realm of 3-D. The fireplace was “the anchor for the entire design,” says Pluta, who had worked as a freelance interior designer for 15 years before joining the White House enterprise three years ago. And the carpet played a supplementary role, its blues picking up those in the fireplace’s marble insert, the hand-painted mural above the mantel and the fabric of the sofa. The silhouette of

the fireplace opening is repeated in the wooden beams in the skylight and vaulted ceiling as well as in the shape of the back of the sofa. The lodge-like aesthetic is brought to life with matching deep leather swivel chairs by Taylor King, the oversized appliquéd coffee table by Theodore Alexander that separates them, and the round, marble-topped, wood-paneled tables by Century at their sides. Red gingham-checked balloon valances on the windows and the upholstered cornice toppers and curtains on the two sets of French doors in the same material frame the room’s spectacular woodland views. Not lost in the mix, however, was the room’s multiple purposes. For company, extra seating can be had on a pair of ottomans that were purchased from Fine Furniture but then reupholstered with a fabric incorporating an animal print. A Theodore Alexander table awaits traditional gamers (chess, anyone?). The family’s baby grand piano begs a chord or two. And at the touch of a remote, the mural above the fireplace disappears into side pockets to make way for the emergence of a widescreen TV. MORRIS/ESSEX HE ALTH & LIFE

POWER FOOD

Chard your course MEET YOUR MATCH, KALE. THIS LEAFY UNDERDOG IS READY TO GO THE DISTANCE. IN THE ARENA OF SUPERFOODS, LEAFY greens are the crowd favorites, offering a low-calorie, low-fat source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. But with spinach and kale stealing the spotlight, one nutritional all-star is often overlooked. Part of the goosefoot family of vegetables, along with spinach and beets, chard goes by many names, including Swiss chard, spinach beet and silverbeet, to name a few. But no matter what you call it, there’s no doubt it touts plenty of health benefits.

POWER UP Worried about weight? Simply washing your dishes after dinner will be enough to burn off the calories you take in from a serving of raw chard—one cup has only 7 calories (about the same as raw spinach), and a cup of cooked chard has approximately 35 calories (that’s about 5 minutes of light jogging, if you’re counting). It’s also lacking in fat (less than 1 gram in 1 cup cooked) and

56

sugar (2 grams), leaving room for more of the good stuff, including about 700 percent of the recommended intake of vitamin K, which supports bone and blood health. It delivers a substantial amount of vitamin A, which promotes eye health and boosts immune function, and it’s a significant source of vitamin C, fiber, iron, magnesium and potassium. Chard is also believed to be beneficial to those with diabetes because it contains an antioxidant called syringic acid that studies have shown may help to regulate glucose levels.

BUY/STORE/SERVE Available in green, red and rainbow varieties, chard can be purchased at most supermarkets, usually alongside kale and other leafy greens. Look for crisp stems and healthy leaves that aren’t wilted or brown. Store chard by wrapping it in a dry paper towel, placing it in a plastic bag that is left unsealed, and keeping the bag in the

refrigerator. Depending on freshness, it will last from several days to as long as a week. Chard has the same culinary flexibility as its cousin spinach: as a salad base, in a frittata, sautéed with garlic, or simply braised or steamed. To prepare chard, wash it well in cold water, taking care to remove any grit, and cut the leaves away from the stems (the stems can be cooked separately in soups or a stir-fry).

DID YOU KNOW? What exactly is in a name? In the case of this vegetable, a lot of confusion. Often called Swiss chard, it’s actually believed to have originated in Italy and is a staple in Mediterranean diets. In fact, no one is quite sure where the “Swiss” part comes from. Some believe “chard” originated from the French word carde or the Latin word carduus, both referring to an artichoke thistle plant. In South Africa, it is simply called “spinach.” —Liz Donovan

DIRECTIONS To prepare the cherry barbecue sauce, combine olive oil, garlic and shallots in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until shallots begin to soften, about 2–3 minutes. Stir in ketchup, cherry preserves and remaining ingredients (through cumin). Reduce heat to low, and continue to stir. Cook until sauce begins to thicken (about 20 minutes). Place turkey in a slow cooker. Pour sauce over turkey. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Remove turkey and shred with two forks. Place shredded turkey back into slow cooker, turning to coat each piece with the cherry sauce. Keep warm. To prepare the onion rings, combine flour, salt and pepper in a large ziplock bag. Add onions and toss to coat each piece. Heat oil in a large, deep pan until oil reaches 365°F. Add onions and fry just until they are golden (3–4 minutes). Be sure to only add a few onion rings at a time, taking care not to crowd your pan. Remove onions and place on a baking sheet lined with a paper towel. Repeat with remaining onions. For the ranch sauce, combine yogurt, buttermilk and ranch seasoning in a bowl. Divide turkey and onions among each sandwich roll. Drizzle ranch sauce over onions. Serve.

RESTAURANT REVIEW

Town Bar + Kitchen THOUGH PARTS WERE DESTROYED BY FIRE IN EARLY 2015, Elm Street in downtown Morristown is teeming with life again thanks in part to the immediate success of Town Bar + Kitchen. That’s probably not shocking, considering the contemporary American restaurant is owned by the same group running the widely popular Cambridge Wines. (The guys at the nearby store deliver wine to your home or if you’re at a local BYOB restaurant.) Town is just a few weeks old and it’s already a hot spot, with diners raving about its cool layout, modern decor and swanky vibe (not to mention ample parking). What also helps is the vino selection. The impressive wine list boasts about 200 varieties, including, of course, the entire Cambridge collection. Not sure which to try? Knowledgeable staff will gladly let you sample some before you commit, which our server Lauren suggested that my dining companion do before ordering. (She eventually selected a Bordeaux blend that pairs well with chicken and seafood.) And beer lovers, myself included, need not worry— there are plenty of craft brews on tap. My fancy for the evening: Bolero Snort’s Frozen Pasture, an ale brewed right here in Jersey. So what do wine guys know about food? A lot, as my friend and I quickly discovered. For starters, we shared a plate of tuna tartare, which easily rivaled some of the freshest and best sushi I’ve ever tasted. Beneath the fish was a creamy bed of avocado and a sweet citrus sauce. The only drawback was the accompanying tray of taro chips. Each thin-cut chip snapped when

68

we loaded it with tuna and avocado. Comfort food was on the mind of my friend, who also selected lobster mac and cheese from the appetizer menu. Unlike many mac and cheese dishes, this plate wasn’t swimming with cheese and didn’t skimp on the seafood—in fact, the lobster meat outlasted the other ingredients on the plate. “This really got me,” she said, praising the dish. It wasn’t easy choosing an entrée from a menu featuring farmfresh ingredients, locally-sourced meats and house-made pastas; everything sounded so good. Alas, I went with the herb and truffle Amish chicken, a half-bird with a generous side of fingerling potatoes, carrots and onions. Each bite of the tender chicken, served on the bone, was a delight to the taste buds, as were the veggies and the plate of Brussels sprouts with pancetta that I added to my order. My companion selected the smoked seared scallops, which came atop a bed of mashed cauliflower, sweet potato and truffle. Though each of the three large scallops was cooked to the right temperature, the smoky flavor flexed too much muscle and overpowered the other components of the dish—and my friend’s senses. Though our stomachs were nearly full, my companion and I were drawn to the dessert menu. Town’s classic crème brulee, my order, is a sure-fire hit for those hoping to satisfy a sweet craving, but my friend was grateful for Lauren’s recommendation of the banoffie pie. The layers of banana, dulce de leche and crust make for the perfect after-meal treat. Our dinner complete, my friend and I lingered to savor Town’s upscale casual vibe. We ordered another drink and, despite loud music from an overhead speaker, we enjoyed the evening conversation. Also surprisingly pleasant was a trip to the restroom, which featured a complimentary hand-care center with an antibacterial sugar scrub. (Your hands will feel so soft!) By the end of the night, we fully appreciated why the restaurant has quickly become the talk of the town. —Darius Amos Town Bar + Kitchen, 80 Elm St., Morristown, 973.889.8696; townbarandkitchen.com
