Bagging it at dinnertime

It's a busy person's dream: A tasty home-cooked meal of pot roast, chicken, pork chops or spare ribs that's a snap to prepare and clean up. McCormick & Co. makes it easy with its new Bag 'n Season blends, which combine an oven-roasting bag with a seasoning mix for a wide variety of meats and poultry, shopping list, three-step directions and cooking tips. Bag 'n Season costs about $1.69 in supermarkets everywhere. Yummy chocolate dishes will abound at A Chocolate Affair, the annual bash to benefit Action for the Homeless. This year's event takes place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 1 in the Belvedere Grand Ballroom, 1 E. Chase St. Tickets are $30 per person, or four for $100. Call (410) 659-0300.

Aussie eating

OK, so you might never eat black rice pudding for breakfast, and wouldn't touch a screwpine leaf with a 10-foot pole. But who could resist deep-fried prawns in chickpea batter, or a warm tart of blue cheese and caramelized onions? All are in "A Taste of Australia: The Bathers Pavilion Cookbook," by Victoria Alexander and Genevieve Harris (Ten Speed Press, $27.95).
