A stop at a Middle Eastern bakery and a stack of freshly baked pitas rekindled my appetite for lahmajoun, a dish I learned to make from Armenian-American friends in Detroit. It's a terrific solution for the dinner rush. I'm told that lahmajoun (la-ma-ZHOON) translates from Arabic to "meat dough," but if you think of it as individual pizzas, you would be closer to the mark. Robin Mather Jenkins writes for the Chicago Tribune, which provided the recipe and analysis. Menu suggestion Lahmajoun Chopped salad of cucumbers, onions and tomatoes Orange sherbet Lahmajoun Serves 8 -- Total time: 30 minutes 1 pound lean ground lamb 1 onion, finely chopped or grated 1 clove garlic, minced 1 teaspoon oregano 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes 8 whole-wheat or regular pitas 1/4 cup pine nuts 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cara Kohler of Baltimore wanted the recipe for the delicious cheesy baked grits casserole served at a cookout over the summer. She said she had never enjoyed grits as much as she did these, and they seemed to be a hit with everyone at the party. Tracy Swindel , also of Baltimore, shared her go-to recipe for baked grits from "The Lady & Sons: Savannah Country Cookbook" by Paula Deen . Swindel said she frequently makes this dish for large gatherings because it can be made ahead of time and the recipe doubles well if you are feeding a crowd.

An incorrect baking time was given in the recipe for Spaghetti Pie in yesterday's A La Carte section. The pie should be baked, uncovered, for 25 minutes, then baked for 5 more minutes after the shredded mozzarella is added.The Sun regrets the error.While watching Mr. Food, Art Ginsberg, recently demonstrate recipes from his three new on-the-mark cookbooks ("Mr. Food Cooks Pasta" or "Chicken" or "Dessert") I was struck by the excitement he created in his audience over his simple, homey spaghetti pie, crunchy on the outside with a smooth rich interior.

I'm an entrepreneur with experience in both public and private sector, and I work in tech, a traditionally male-dominated field. It's important that workplaces affirmatively work to recruit and retain top women talent. Once you get the job, certain minor changes can help ensure you assert yourself professionally. Cheryl Sandberg advises to take a seat at the table - literally and figuratively. Here are a few more tips: •Don't bake brownies. You're not a Girl Scout troop leader at work, don't act like one. •Don't use exclamation points in email correspondence.

Jerad Bates stood ready between two canvas booths - one for flour, one for water. He held a bowl in which to mix the two. In the traditional matzo bakery re-created Sunday at the Lubavitch Center for Jewish Education's open house, the flour and water for Passover matzo were kept secure in their separate booths before they were mixed, and baked, in 18 minutes. Eighteen is the mystical number for life, but matzo, called the "bread of affliction," has other meanings. The Jewish people baked matzo because there was no time to let bread rise before their exodus from Egypt, said Rabbi Hillel Baron of the Lubavitch Center.

Q: I have a problem freezing my freshly-baked fruit pies. How can I prevent them from getting watery when they thaw?A: Judith Choate, author of "The Great American Pie Book," recommends freezing fruit pies only if unbaked. If preparing a pie that calls for a pre-baked filling, such as a berry filling, let that cool before placing the unbaked pie in a plastic bag and sealing. Otherwise, for such pies as apple or pear pie, prepare entire pie up to baking point. Some frozen unbaked pies can actually be baked while still frozen.

It tastes like bread seasoned with garlic, olive oil and cheese.

It didn't look or feel like spring outside, but a sure sign of the season was forming in Columbia's Dobbin Center parking lot, across from Upton's.As a chilly rain fell yesterday, farmers and gardeners dressed in slickers were displaying their produce and baked goods on the first day of Columbia's expanded farmers' market. Huddled under tents, five vendors braved the weather to truck in fresh asparagus, ripe tomatoes, potted plants and just-baked fruit pies."It's the first day, and we wanted to see where our spot was," said Mike Shaw of Simpsonville's Shaw Farms, flanked by a table of flavored vinegars, green peppers and bagged salads mixed with organically grown flowers.

Customers of Towson's artisan bakery La Cakerie could easily mistake their surroundings for an enlarged dollhouse kitchen; high-pitched strains of pop music bounce off pink walls and the aroma of baking cake batter wafts through the air. Owner and executive chef Jason Hisley opened the West Allegheny Avenue location seven months ago, relocating from nearby West Chesapeake Avenue and joining La Cakerie's sales location in Mount Vernon. Listening to suggestions from a new crop of busy working professionals, Hisley expanded La Cakerie from its pastry roots.

Republican Larry Hogan entered the 38th annual J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake to the sound of his name being chanted. Because his opponent in the governor's race had a funeral to attend, Hogan was largely uncontested as he worked the crowd of about 4,200 of the most politically active people in Maryland. As a dozen or so supporters cheered him on, Hogan addressed reporters and accused Democrat Anthony G. Brown of not wanting to schedule enough debates. "I think the people of Maryland deserve to a have a real clear choice for a change," Hogan said.

Alice McKeehan of Elkhart, Ind., wanted help locating a recipe for making a Twinkie cake. Her friend who used to make it has died, and McKeehan cannot find her copy of the recipe. All she can really remember is that it was an easy, no-bake cake that had Hostess' Twinkies as the base layer. According to the Hostess website, the Continental Baking Co. first made Twinkies in 1930. Although Hostess briefly went out of business in 2012 amid bankruptcy and an employee strike, Twinkies are back on the shelves and have been a part of the American snack food culture for the better part of a century.

Sheila Hunter of Severna Park was hoping someone would have the recipe for a one-dish baked pasta entree that does not require cooking the pasta first. She said the recipe was printed on the label of a pasta sauce (she doesn't recall which one) back in the 1990s. Hunter hasn't been able to find the pasta sauce in stores for a long time and did not write down the recipe because she always just followed the directions on the jar. She said the dish was easy and made a tasty hot main dish that could feed a family of five.

"Ace of Cakes" star Duff Goldman whipped up an array of rainbow-colored cakes for Katy Perry's new "Birthday" video. The founder of Charm City Cakes made confections shaped as a cat, a suit (a "birthday suit"), a Rubik's cube, a hamburger and a gift, among others, for the pop singer's video, according to People .  Perry plays a baker in the video, placing cakes on pedestals, spelling out words with candies. The lyrics to the song are written out on icing or with other sweets throughout the video.  That took a lot of close collaboration between the producers and the staff of Cakemix , Goldman's Los Angeles bakery.

Coming up on its fourth anniversary, Bluegrass Tavern has quietly been earning top marks as a carefully crafted American cuisine establishment in an area that has seen a wave of revitalization, much to the restaurant's benefit. And with a relatively wide selection of whiskeys and bourbons at the bar's disposal, it should be no surprise that the cocktail program is equally carefully crafted and heavy on the brown stuff. Bartender Jenna Kumm has put together a complex set of libations to fill the list, one in particular serving as a next-level whiskey sour: the Wake and Bake.

Eyes bleary from baking until midnight, boys and girls lined up at 9 a.m. yesterday for judging before a formidable panel of white-haired women who can size up a cake in less time than it takes to cream butter and sugar together. The pronouncements of these women will translate into dollars in the annual baked goods auction of the Carroll County 4-H Fair. The grand champion baked item, usually a cake, traditionally fetches the highest price - well over $1,000. The money goes not to the baker, but to the 4-H treasury that keeps the 103-year-old county fair true to its agricultural roots.

The bidding starts at $1,000. Hands fly into the air and the crowd grows louder, urged on by a group of kids clapping and hollering from the side of the pavilion. The stakes are raised: $1,100, $1,200, $1,300, and it isn't long before the auctioneer is calling for a figure approaching $3,000. "Don't be afraid to get right in there," auctioneer Nevin Tasto shouts. "It's for a real good cause." He's talking about the Carroll County 4-H and Future Farmers of America Fair. But the money isn't being thrown down for champion steers or blue-ribbon hogs.

More than 22 years ago, Leona Smith came to her church family at Mt. Nebo United Methodist Church in Delta, Pa., to ask the congregation to join with her in providing cookies for the York County Prison at Christmastime. Those choosing to participate in the Cookie Project would bake cookies and bring them into church by a certain day. About seven years ago, Sandy Thacker designated a day in December for anyone who wanted to join her at church to bake cookies for the Jail Ministry. Over the years, Thacker has developed the process into having anyone make the cookie recipe at home and then bring the mixture into church with the instructions for her crew to bake the cookies.
