Danger, dieters! Krispy Kreme's koming

Life is good now that Krispy Kreme doughnuts have become a trendy food. These luscious fat- and sugar-laden icons from the South have a cult following, are served in fine New York restaurants and have even been the subject of a Smithsonian exhibit. Now Baltimoreans will get a chance to find out why. Our first Krispy Kreme franchise will open next month at 8010 Belair Road, just off the Beltway. Look for two additional area stores in early '99. Yum.

Quick pasta sauce

Here's a quick but elegant little pasta sauce adapted from a recipe in the new "Good Housekeeping Best One-Dish Meals" (William Morrow, 1998):

Gorgonzola and Walnut Sauce

Makes 6 servings

1/2 cup light cream

3/4 cup chicken broth

4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Bring cream and broth to a boil, reduce heat and cook 5 minutes. Add cheese and seasonings, whisk until smooth, stir in walnuts.

Oops, too late

Because of incorrect information provided by the Culinary NTC Institute of America, I urged readers to enter the school's apple pie recipe contest - after the deadline. My apologies to all who were inconvenienced.
