Despite what owner Rachel Yaseen has discovered for herself, she knows that cooking organic, healthful meals might seem intimidating to some. At The Organic Kitchen, she works to banish those impressions and inspire students with her own enthusiasm for natural foods, whether through cooking classes or intensive workshops. “Students learn to eat outside of the industrial food chain,” noted reporter Emily Gindlesparger of Zócalo Tucson magazine, “developing instead the creativity to source from their own yards and work with ingredients available in the Southwest throughout the seasons.”

Pupils learn to improve their eating habits and concoct quick and simple at-home feasts that draw on local veggies, grains, beans, herbs, and spices. Each class features only gluten-free recipes, and the sessions focus on culinary traditions from India, the Mediterranean, and other regions. Pantry makeovers go even further, helping facilitate lifestyle shifts with cooking classes and one-on-one coaching to rid kitchens of powdered hot dogs. When not educating, the chefs handcraft gluten- and soy-free Hiker-Biker bars from local honey and dates.

Augusta Ranch Golf Club’s first hole starts players off with a bit of misdirection. Measuring 379 yards from the back tees, the longest hole on the course calls for a zealous swing, while the rest of the course is designed to give irons a workout. The links feature a mix of par-3 and par-4 holes that invite newcomers to play around and test experienced players' short game play with shallow greens and treacherous bunkers. Instructors give lessons for all skill levels, and the staff organizes a variety of events throughout the year, from clinics and tournaments to Night Golf played with glowing golf balls. Players can convene beneath The Sunset Grille’s outdoor pavilion to snack on classic breakfast and lunch cuisine and keep an eye out for flocks of geese trained to abduct pitching wedges.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 61 course * Total length of 3,846 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 59 from the back tees * Course slope of 91 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Boasting a 100% cage-free environment and over 8,000 total sq. feet, Gilbert Dogs 24/7 & Chandler Dogs 24/7 keep pups active as they romp around in open playrooms supervised by well-trained staff on grounds open 24 hours a day. The boarding facility screens every dog during a behavioral evaluation conducted prior to admission. All pooches that pass are free to run around the daycare gnawing on toys, crafting canine art, and acquiring best friends who don’t ever demand that they fetch newspapers or platters bearing three-course meals. Supervising staff members are certified dog lovers and have completed an Interpreting Dog Body Language seminar to help diffuse potential conflicts in the playroom, and film videos of pups having fun to show to returning owners. For clients leaving their pups for an extended period, the facility’s overnight boarding service allows owners to rest easy knowing that an overnight staff member is always on hand to comfort canines after nightmares of losing at poker. The shop rounds out its canine-comforting service menu with shuttle rides to appointments or puppy field trips, courses in obedience training, and spa grooming sessions in which pups are washed, dried, and brushed until coats gleam with a healthy shine.

It begins with a facial massage with MMIV shave oil, creating a protective barrier and conditioning the skin with Vitamin E. Next, warm towels open pores, soften scruff, and relax muscles without the adverse and downright weird affects of a horse tranquilizer. Finally, hand-whipped MMIV shave cream coats jawlines, another product packed with Vitamin E as well as green tea. This process comprises just the preliminary steps for an Ultimate Shave at M.U.G. Men's Ultimate Grooming. Once faces are prepped, specially trained barbers shave with, and then against, the grain. Then, they wrap smooth faces in a cool towel before spreading on moisturizer like butter on a dry Thanksgiving turkey—but without Grams and Aunt Carol watching closely.

All of the MMIV products are exclusive to M.U.G. Its masterminds spent almost a decade formulating them specifically for the Ultimate Shave, making sure each held an ample amount of conditioning Vitamin E. The staff, which also cuts and colors hair, trusts in the products so fully that they'll give you a refund if the MMIV line doesn't deliver the closest shave since Napoleon bear-crawled away from Waterloo, sobbing into his epaulets.

There's nothing humble about Humble Pie's pizza crust: Pulled from wood-fired ovens with a light, bubbly texture that crisps at lightly charred edges, it cracks to release a subtle aroma of smoke and yeast. For owner Tom Kaufman, the recipe demanded two months of tinkering and one month of building an underground vault to keep it from prying eyes. Customers tend to think the time was worth it as they bite into delicate slices topped with careful combinations of veggies, meats and cheeses, often locally sourced.

The potato-and-roasted-garlic pizza, for example, happily marries the fragrances of gorgonzola and rosemary. Retaining a botanical touch even on a meat-lover's pie, the Schreiners Sicilian Sausage sprinkles homemade mozzarella with "sprigs of roasted fennel [that] add another aromatic dimension," according to Phoenix New Times.

While the pizza may push some of the other menu items out of the limelight, fresh salads, grilled sandwiches, and traditional and twisted pastas earnestly pine for appetites' affections. The Our Way" Mac & Cheese adds aged white cheddar, italian bacon, and bread crumbs, distinguishing itself from its boxed brethren while forming an equally fun medium for kids' art projects, while wine, beer, and seasonal cocktails pair well with plates and pies alike.
