Beyond stews, soups

Spring may be here, but that's no reason to put away the slow cooker. A new book from Lora Brody, "Slow Cooker Cooking," shows how you can use this appliance to make more than stews and soups. Recipes include Duxelles-Stuffed Mushrooms and Asian Short Ribs.

To help seahorses

You can have your cake and help a cause, too. Leroy Cox, executive chef at Pisces Specialty Seafood Restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore, has created a cake in honor of the opening of a seahorse exhibit at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Every time a diner orders this dessert, the Hyatt will donate a dollar to the aquarium for its Seahorse Breeding Institute.

Food-label campaign

Whole Foods Market, which operates Fresh Fields, has launched a write-in campaign against proposed Food and Drug Administration rules that suggest voluntary labeling of genetically engineered foods. The company believes such labeling should be mandatory and is making available postcards in its stores for customers to send to the FDA urging that the proposed rules be changed.
