Dishes seasoned with Maryland charm

Take a culinary trip through Frederick and the surrounding area in a new cookbook, "In the Kitchen With Kendi" by cooking instructor Kendi O'Neill. The Frederick resident offers 100 seasonal recipes pegged to Maryland, with contributions from local chefs. Highlights also include cooking tips, serving suggestions and information on traditions, farmers' markets and historical sites. The book, which costs $29.95, is available through Diversions Publications at 800-272-2014.

Wedding-day choices

The walk down the aisle may be a piece of cake compared to making decisions about what to serve at the wedding reception. Today's bridal couples are facing more culinary choices, according to Bridal Guide magazine. Instead of sticking with the usual chicken and roast beef, many are saying "I do" to nontraditional foods such as sushi, paella and vegan entrees, and brightly colored cakes in shades of orange, purple and blue.

Mixing in for 40 years

It's a sweet celebration for Sweet'N Low's 40th anniversary. The world's first sugar substitute was developed by a New York couple, who named the product after a favorite Alfred Lord Tennyson poem and marketed it in pink packets to make it stand out from regular sugar.
