Calling All Veggies, Front and Center!

Calling All Veggies, Front and Center!

Jennifer Cheng

Seeing the vibrant summer eggplants, peppers, tomatoes and fresh ears of corn come into our stores sparks some instant kitchen inspiration. When I see something that’s both in season and on sale, I pounce and start brainstorming meals right away.

Some of my favorite vegetable-centric meals are influenced by Yotam Ottolenghi, whose approach toward vegetables has changed the way that I cook. Though I’m no longer a vegetarian, I’ve come to view meat as a treat, not as a necessity to fill out my meal. Ottolenghi’s recipes honor the bright flavors of vegetables, celebrating them and turning them into dishes that are so satisfying that I don’t miss having meat as an entrée.

Here are some ingredients I like to have on hand when I’m throwing together my summer veggie meals:... Read More

Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast of Champions

I do love breakfast. I have friends who skip breakfast, some whose breakfast consists of a triple Venti nonfat latte, and others who wouldn’t mind a carton of eggs and a side of beef for breakfast.

I like to start my day with a solid meal, plus lots of hot, strong coffee. My penchant for sweets sometimes leads me down the road of French toast or pancakes – ah, I do love pancakes. But, I’ve learned that if my breakfast isn’t packed with protein, then my day just goes downhill.

So when my friend and trainer, Mindy McFall, owner of Folsom Lake Fitness, shared her recipe for protein pancakes with me, I just couldn’t keep all of this goodness to myself! If you’re a breakfast person, but you want something that stays with you and is healthy, you just may have found your new favorite breakfast.

High-priced escort from Folsom arrested for murder


An admitted high-priced escort is facing murder charges after being arrested by undercover officers.

Alix Tichleman, 26, of Folsom was arrested in Santa Cruz July 4 in connection with the death of 51-year-old Forest Hayes.

Santa Cruz police said Tichleman met Hayes at a Santa Cruz docked yacht the night of Nov. 23, 2013. Tichleman is suspected of injecting Hayes with heroin and leaving after he passed out and died. She was identified as a suspect when police learned she had an ongoing prostitution relationship with the victim.

Detectives said Tichleman met many of her clients on the website SeekingArrangement, where "sugar babies" can find their "sugar daddies" and vice versa.

During interviews with investigators, Tichleman boasted about having more than 200 client relationships.
