In this issue

Kitchen Meets Fashion


Don’t get caught wearing a grubby old apron this year. These adorable aprons from Kay Dee Designs make baking chic — and they make great gifts for friends who like to spend time in the kitchen.

Insulate your Baking

Cookie Sheet

For cookies that turn out golden-brown every time, we recommend Norpro’s non-stick, insulated baking sheet. Air travels through this sheet’s two layers of non-stick finished steel to create an efficient baking surface free from hot-spots.

Cutie Cookie Cutters

Cookie Cutters

Snowflakes, candy canes and gingerbread men — what shape will your holiday cookies be? Annie Clark’s cookie cutters come in a wide variety of shapes for the season, and they are sold individually so you can choose the ones you like best.

Happy Cupcakes

Rrf Cupcakes

Perhaps the trendiest (and most adorable) of all desserts are cupcakes, and with Anna Mae’s Gourmet Cupcakes one-box mix, creating single-serving treats has never been easier. For the holidays, we like the festive Spice and Red Velvet varieties.

If You Care

If You Care

Show that you love our planet by trying out the If You Care line of products for baking: unbleached paper baking cups, parchment paper and 100 percent recycled aluminum foil. These environmentally friendly products won’t affect the taste of your baked goods, but using them will help protect our world.

Digest-All by MRM

Digest All

Are you planning to go for seconds (or thirds) this Thanksgiving? Then it might not be a bad idea to have a bottle of Digest-All on hand. Our bodies’ abilities to digest large meals slow down with age, and this product uses powerful enzymes to help break down that turkey dinner (as well as relieve none-too-pleasant post-meal feelings of indigestion and bloating).

Community Events

December 5th (5pm to 8pm)

Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony - Roseville CA

Holiday Baking

Featured Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies

Ginger Bread Cookie

There’s nothing more fun to get you in the holiday spirit than decorating gingerbread cookies with the kids. Karisa’s recipe is simple and delicious. Cut out your favorite shapes with Anne Clark’s cookie cutters - featured below. You can add food coloring to the royal icing to create bright colors, and don’t forget about the wide range of sprinkles and edible decorations on our baking aisle.

Try some Organic Options

Org Baking Products

For holiday baking this year, try going organic on some of your staple ingredients. We highly recommend:

  • Spectrum’s organic all-vegetable shortening
  • Rapunzel’s organic corn starch
  • Santini’s organic sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk
  • Our Pantry Organics’ raisins and Newman’s Own organic cranberries
  • TRUwhip’s all-natural, organic whipped topping
  • Wholly Wholesome organic traditional pie shells

Save Room for Dessert


Thanksgiving dinner just wouldn’t be complete without a slice of pie to finish it all off. If you’re not up for baking this year, but would still like that delicious pie on your plate, let Nugget’s bakery do the work. Our bakery offers pumpkin, apple, peach, cherry, berry, strawberry rhubarb, and blueberry pies - all with no trans fats! Selection varies between stores.

Bogle Petite Sirah Port

Bogle Port

Year in and out, this is our best-selling dessert wine — and it’s local, too! Ruby-style, with aromas of ripe plums with blackberries, its finish brings everything together with hints of old-fashioned cigar boxes, spicy cocoa and warm berry pie. It goes great with anything that has chocolate or just about anything sweet. Looking for more great holiday wine ideas? Pick up a free holiday gifts and entertaining guide next time you are in one of our stores.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

Healthy Holiday Baking

The warm smell of baking cookies, cakes and pies is undoubtedly a sweet and cherished part of the holidays. But often this also means an abundance of not-so-good-for-you treats loaded with calories, along with extra fat and sugar. This holiday season, try using these healthier ingredient options in your favorite baking recipes.

  • Trans-fat-free margarine: Hard stick margarines and vegetable shortenings contain trans fats, which studies show are linked to poor heart health. Use a trans-fat-free version for the same results but fewer calories.
  • Whole wheat/grain flour: Switch out 1/3 to 1/2 of the recipe’s flour allotment with a whole-grain version. This adds fiber and additional nutrients and creates a hearty baked texture in breads, muffins and cookies.
  • Applesauce or plum puree: You can substitute these for a portion of the oil, butter or margarine in recipes. This reduces calories and fat by 40 to 50 percent without compromising flavor.
  • Nuts and seeds: Adding almonds, walnuts, pecans or sunflower seeds boosts nutrition in your baked goods. Nuts and seeds supply a wealth of vitamin E along with the minerals zinc and selenium.
  • Dried fruit: Use cranberries, raisins and other dried fruits in cookie and cake recipes for a festive look. Dried fruits add extra nutrition, including fiber and potassium.
  • Chocolate: Small amounts of dark chocolate supply a group of antioxidants called anthocyanidins that have heart-protective benefits. But keep in mind moderation is key with all baked goodies!
