Hoist the mainsail and open the olive oil

No matter how small your boat, you can do some gourmet cooking on it, says Terry Searfoss, TV chef and author of "The Two Burner Gourmet," a cookbook for sailors. Searfoss will be giving free cooking demonstrations at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis tomorrow through Monday. Look for him at the Kenyon Marine exhibit (land booth No. 9). Call 800-842-5539 for exact times and other information.

Cookie cravings

They have names like Triple Chocolate Chunk, Lacy Oat and Peanut Butter With Chocolate. The word decadent doesn't begin to describe the line of Cookie It Up! cookies that have just appeared in local gourmet stores such as Eddie's, Graul's and Bun Penny.

These premium cookies from Canada are made with real butter, fine chocolate and other good things. Only one variety didn't quite match up to homemade - my chocolate chip cookies are better.

Wrappers rate a rave

I've added a new product to my list of guilty pleasures: Reynolds Wrappers Foil Sandwich Sheets. I'm sure it would be cheaper and more ecologically sound to use waxed paper when I'm making lunches, but these sandwich-size foil sheets are just so convenient. Delis have been using them for years. They're also good for heating leftovers in a toaster oven. A box of 50 sheets retails for $1.99.
