Over the summer, Harbor East favorite Pazo shifted its focus from Spanish food to Italian, featuring dishes like this spicy lobster pasta. Pairing freshly cooked lobster with Fresno chili-spiked tomato sauce, Chef Julian Marucci creates a fabulous special occasion dish that's easy to re-create at home. Marucci makes good use of the whole lobster, incorporating the cooked shells to create stock that infuses tomato sauce with the crustacean's unique flavor. The addition of hot Fresno pepper gives the sauce extra -- and welcome -- verve.

I'm a sucker for cocktail names. The more obscure, random or puzzling, the better. Like "Bramble. " I've noticed it on several drink menus across Baltimore this summer and finally found one worth ordering — the Bramble On at the Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington. It turns out the Bramble has a pretty storied history. One might even call it a modern classic. "The Bramble was — and still is — a cocktail that was popular in England in the 1980s. Basically, it's a gin sour with blackberry liqueur.

I was visiting my sister in New England on our weekly CSA pickup day, so my husband dutifully went out to the farm to get our haul. Once home, he prepped all the veggies, carefully placing them in the crispers of the fridge. He even took a photo of this week's Community Supported Agriculture bounty, and sent me a caption identifying everything in clockwise order: Garlic, lettuce, mustard greens, broccoli, raspberries, beets, carrots, basil. So helpful. When I got home, three days later, everything was still there waiting for me to come up with exciting recipes.

All my new basil plants have dead patches on the leaves. Can I treat this? If the patches are tan, it may be damage from the cold weather. Basil likes it hot. It should recover and put out healthy new growth when temperatures rise. If the patches are dark brown or blackish, it's probably a fungus. There are no fungal sprays that would be appropriate for fungal disease on basil because it is a food plant. Consider replanting. My neighbor has a new lawn, and it is a lot greener than mine.

Not gonna lie, not even going to try and fib: I'm somewhat obsessed with layered drinks. There's just something magical about seeing layers of colors representing flavors in a glass, begging for the option of preservation throughout the cocktail experience - or total layer devastation with the flick of a straw. If layers are your thing, then I've discovered another option worthy of your attention at one Rivserside eatery known as Home Slyce. Bartender Ricardo Vargas is always noodling around with little cocktail creations, but finally decided to go whole hog with creating a cocktail of his own to fit his personality.

The creator of popular Marvel Comics characters such as the X-Men and the Hulk teamed with the Lutherville-based JADS International to create his namesake scent, Stan Lee Signature Cologne. The company describes the cologne as a "fresh and sophisticated fragrance for the adventurous. " Andrew Levine, 48, chief executive officer of JADS International, said the collaboration is the result of meeting Lee at a Comic-Con event in Philadelphia last year.

There are those times in life in which a name doesn't necessarily meet reality, when a book defies its cover, if you will. And in the world of cocktails, this is no exception. A Boxcar tastes nothing like an actual boxcar. A Cape Cod? Tastes nothing like a beach. And in our case, the Inner Harbor's Sullivan's Steakhouse has a cocktail whose name and ingredients might throw you for a loop: the Thai Basil Fizz. The Thai Basil Fizz, though it sounds rather robust from its ingredients list including black pepper, Thai basil and prosecco, is almost like a fizzy whiskey sour - sans whiskey of course, with Tito's Vodka in its place.

Jenny Garcia from Santa Rosa, Calif., shared a recipe that she and her husband came up with that she said was inspired by a similar recipe in the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook.

Karen Hertwig of Baltimore was trying to locate a recipe for a creamy basil salad dressing like the one that was served at the original Perry Inn in Perry Hall. She said the restaurant changed hands, and the new owners no longer serve it. She said the dressing was served warm over a tossed salad topped with grilled chicken or steak. This one sounded like something worth pursuing, particularly given how robust my basil crop is this summer. I found what sounded like a great low-fat recipe for a creamy basil garlic salad dressing on the recipe blog writes4food.com by Bryn Mooth of Cincinnati.
