You have 2 options below. I suggest option #1 as you want to minimize core code changes.

1. change on the php.ini side in your server:

2. Add line of code in the beginning of core/init.php file with something like this:
date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');

I found the file in the XAMPP - Apache Config - php.ini and that's where I made the change.

Thank you pointing me in the right direction!
