When a career as a fitness instructor instilled in him the importance of a balanced yet palatable diet, Stephen Charles Lincoln founded The Protein Bakery in 1999 to sate clients' sweet teeth while maintaining fitness-focused bodies. Lauded by Oprah Winfrey as "genuinely delicious," the bakery's cookies, brownies, and blondies—all baked in small batches daily—blend decadent flavors with nourishing whey protein and wheat-free, high-fiber ingredients. Perfectly cut brownie squares in flavors such as mint and espresso¬ mingle with peanut-butter and chocolate-chip blondies to create protein-packed snacks. Cookies in flavors such as oatmeal cranberry and chocolate chocolate chip pack up to 6 grams of protein each to forge healthy treats and help to jump-start the bodybuilding careers of dessert-addicted Muppets.
Both Pattie Johnson and her husband, Mark, have been creating glass art since the 1970s. At their full-service studio in Tucson, the couple works in all varieties of glass, from blown and fused to cast and stained. Their wide-reaching knowledge spills over into a variety of themed classes that help students of all ages learn basic techniques and forge masterpieces of their own.
Expressions Art Glass is currently celebrating its 20th year of bringing colorful glassware into the homes of discerning art-lovers. Led by an experienced instructor, a fused-glass-plate class allows amateur artisans to create their own fragile masterpiece, ideal for displaying on the fireplace mantle or the dashboard of a spare helicopter. Using glass, a mold, and kiln firings, students learn to shape glass with mosaic cutters and prepare their plate for the sintering flames of the kiln. All classes are taught to small groups and Expressions Art Glass will provide all materials and tools, preventing the need for students to harvest their own sand and tote along their own fire. Plates will be ready for pick-up after one week's time.
