Stars share their recipes

In many ways, actors -- like the rich -- are different from you and me. But when it comes to food, they are very much like us, savoring favorite recipes and meals. In "Autograph Celebrity Cookbook" (DuPont), 25 stars contributed recipes, ranging from Sauteed Scallops and Spring Vegetables (Andy Garcia) to Lamb Wrapped in Phyllo (Richard Belzer). The book, which benefits charitable meal programs, is available at a promotional price of $19.99 by calling 877-353-5877.

The joy of soy

You probably know that soy is linked to myriad health claims, including preventing cancer, lowering cholesterol and reducing heart disease. To add more of this potent legume to your diet, try the latest popular soy foods: crunchy soy nuts and edemame (fresh soybeans in the pod).
