The Potato Valley Cafe in Annapolis began life several years ago as part of a Swedish chain offering baked potatoes garnished with all sorts of yummy things, like mango slices. It's no longer part of the chain, but Potato Valley remains a first-class carryout specializing in artistically prepared - and tasty - baked potatoes. While the General Assembly is in session, legislators, lobbyists and staffers cram into the cafe's airy dining area, or tote bags full of potatoes and home-made soups back to their offices.

The Mushroom Council says button or medium-sized mushrooms are best for sauteing and for slicing in salads. Large mushrooms work well for stuffing, broiling, grilling, or as an ingredient in stews and soups.When shopping, look for firm mushrooms. If you want young mushrooms, look for those with the veil -- the membrane between the stem and cap -- still attached. Open-veiled mushrooms are still delicious -- just more mature, the Mushroom Council says.Garden Baked Potatoes2 tablespoons olive oil8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch squares1 large clove garlic, minced2 tablespoons water1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juiceSalt and pepper, to taste2 baked potatoes (about 6 ounces each)

Item: Ore Ida Twice Baked PotatoesWhat you get: 2 servings (10 ounces)Cost: $2.19Time to prepare: 40-45 minutes in conventional oven or 6-8 minutes in the microwave.Review: I sought these out, because the coupon I had clipped touted a cooking method on the grill. Then I realized that would take 30-40 minutes, so I zapped these spuds in the microwave. Glad I did. These babies cooked up fast, and they tasted tangy and fresh -- not frozen. Not as fat-laden as you might think (slightly fewer than 1/3 of the calories are supplied by fat)

If you ask Serge England Arbona's wife, she'll tell you he's a little bit nuts. He has to be to do what he did over the weekend: run 152.27 miles on a treadmill in 24 hours - staking claim to four world records and tormenting every major muscle group in his body. "These runners, especially ultra runners, have a crazy obsession with running," Jeanne England-Arbona, said yesterday. Her French-born, 38-year-old, handyman husband - who has a penchant for 100-mile races through the mountains - started his run at noon Saturday in a Towson YMCA, dead set on breaking the 24-hour treadmill distance record, which he did yesterday by more than three miles.

In recent years, dozens of newfangled diets, including the Atkins plan, have warned Americans about carbohydrates. The hype has caused many diet-conscious folks to limit their daily intake of starchy foods. But carbs are an important - and necessary - part of a healthy diet. The compounds "provide much-needed vitamins and minerals and folate, in particular," said American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Noralyn Wilson. They also supply energy, she added. In fact, many marathon runners and other hard-training athletes eat large amounts of carbohydrates - a practice called "loading" - just prior to a big event.

WASHINGTON - The metal pots and pans on the pegboards of Julia Child's kitchen did not look like props for a photo shoot, like another pretty set of utensils. Instead, like the lady who wielded them, they emitted a strong sense of purpose. They were there to make good meals, to lure people to the pleasures of the table. "The kitchen was my favorite room in the house," said Julia, who at 90 looked somewhat frail compared to the mental image most of us have of her as the tall, rambunctious woman beaming culinary wisdom and enthusiasm as she cleaves a chicken.
