Paul Martin's Fall Menu is Here

Paul Martin's Fall Menu is Here

Fall means a change in the weather, in the gardens, and therefore, on your plate. When the weather changes not only does our produce in the stores change, but so do our appetites. Fall means squashes, Brussels sprouts, and the beginning of braised meats. And in our new world of farm-to-table dining, the menus at your favorite restaurants change as well.

I haven't been to Paul Martin's American Grill in years. The main reason is that  I live about 30 miles away from the nearest one in Roseville. Recently I was invited to go and check out their fall menu and I figured it would be a good time to revisit them and to catch up with someone who lives out that way, my ex-husband... Read More

Get to Know: Quinoa

Get to Know: Quinoa

Natalie Barbarese

Let’s explore the world of special ingredients together! We’ll do the research and make some mistakes in the kitchen so you don’t have to. Today, experiment with quinoa, an ancient seed that’s been making waves as a modern superfood.

What looks and tastes like a whole grain but is actually a seed that’s a complete source of protein as it has all the essential amino acids plus an exotic name to boot? It’s quinoa!

I Had A Dream I Had Breast Cancer – I DID!

Hi!  I am Lisa O’Hara, Contributor to News10 My Neighborhood for the past three years.   So many events, taking photos and writing articles, informing our community of the great nonprofit organizations which serve our community, brought me to “Race for the Cure” last year which touched my heart deeply as I was photographing women whose survivor-strength shown on their faces, the family members who attended their mother, wife, daughter, aunt, niece and perhaps neighbor who was there to run “The Race For The Cure. “ There were many who as they ran, walked or were in wheelchairs and still undergoing various treatments, showed courage and resiliency for either their “noted year of survival” or the remembrance of a loved one whose life was taken by breast cancer.

One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

 One Weekend, 500 animals, $20 Adoption Special!

The Bradshaw Animal Shelter again teams up for the Empty Our Shelters Project, October 17-19. For this one weekend, pet adoptions are just $20. A goal of adopting 500 animals to loving homes has been challenged for this intensive effort by Sacramento County, Yolo County, Sacramento SPCA, City of Sacramento and Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary.

Last year, our area shelters found 526 animals permanent homes in three days and were nationally recognized by the ASPCA. The County’s Bradshaw Animal Shelter stood out with the most adoptions – 179! With unending desire to help animals and a good dose of competitive spirit, the Bradshaw Shelter hopes the community will once again come together to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for shelter animals.
