The 'Secrets' is out about low-fat cooking

A hundred techniques and 200 easy recipes, along with guides to foods such as beans and salad greens, are featured in "Secrets of Low-Fat Cooking," from the editors of Eating Well magazine (Eating Well Books, 1997, $16.95). Recipes include old favorites such as meat loaf and Boston baked beans, and trendy dishes such as grilled mesclun-stuffed swordfish and roasted vegetable and linguine salad. Start your backyard garden off right this year with a cup of coffee -- or at least the grounds. Starbucks Coffee is offering spent coffee grounds, an ideal component of compost, free to homeowners who call ahead and ask for them. (Typical requests are for half a pound to 5 pounds.) Starbucks has 9 locations in the Baltimore-Annapolis area.
