Anyone who's been to Baltimore Pride -- or any Pride, really -- knows there is a lot to see. It takes a lot to make me raise my eyebrows, but I did on several occassions during the parade and block party in Mount Vernon on Saturday -- mostly with a smile. How boring would it be if that wasn't the case at the state's largest gay party? But beyond the shocking, and beyond the funny, a few broader themes also stood out. Here's Baltimore Pride in a blender: a quick mix of insights from a rowdy day of celebration, political posturing and hometown charm.

Vagabond Opera will wander into Baltimore on Friday night, bringing with it a reputation for delivering genre-bending, sometimes madcap entertainment. Based in Portland, Ore., the sextet takes its name seriously. "We sing real opera in our shows," says saxophonist Robin Jackson, "and fuse it with other things." In addition to arias, the group puts into the blender such elements as cabaret songs, klezmer tunes, Arabian and Balkan folk music, swing, belly-dancing and a cupful or two of camp.

  Smoothies are an easy and healthy breakfast option. Just throw a few ingredients into your blender and in five minutes you're ready to eat. Just about every fast food restaurant has caught on to the smoothie fad and added them to  menus. If you take that route make sure you check the nutrition content. Not all smoothies are made the same. Some includes sugar-laden yogurts and sometimes even ice cream. The better option may be just to make your own smoothies at home.

Here are some tips to keep you safe in the kitchen.* Cut away from your fingers, not toward them, and direct knives downward, toward the cutting board or other surface. Hold knives firmly and don't cut too fast.* Keep knives sharp; dull blades can slip off objects you're cutting, such as onions or tomatoes, and cut your hand.* Store knives in a designated drawer and make sure the entire family knows that's where they go. A knife in another drawer or at the bottom of the sink or dishwasher can cut someone who doesn't expect it to be there.

NEW YORK - Most editorial decisions at Blender, the irreverent music magazine that has thrown a scare into Rolling Stone and won a "launch of the year" award from Advertising Age, are conjured in a tiny conference room dominated by an armless punching bag dummy just like Mariah Carey's. The dummy was acquired under the auspices of journalistic research, an accessory to an article the magazine ran on the diva's reinvention, and it has been customized by the staff to the point where it has a new identity: dummy as editorial muse.

The best thing about Good Housekeeping's newest cookbook is just about every cook already has the most important ingredient you need: a blender. Blend It! (Hearst Books, 2003, $14.95) is a collection of 150 recipes from the folks who do simple better than anyone else, Good Housekeeping magazine's triple-testing editorial kitchens, under the direction of author Susan Westmoreland. And the appeal of this cookbook is that the blender isn't the only ingredient that cooks often have on hand.

Pina Colada. Frozen Daiquiri. Blue Hawaiian. They all sound tempting right about now, don't they? In the heat of summer, nothing refreshes quite like a frozen blended cocktail. Alas, too many calories accompany these delights. A Pina Colada can pack about 500 or so, including nearly 5 grams of saturated fat - that's more than the average fast food hamburger. Unfortunately, some of those calories are unavoidable (another reason not to drink alcohol to excess), but some are not. Generally, frozen drinks that rely on whole fruits or certain unsweetened fruit juices (lemon or lime, for instance)

Cold and creamy, a lassi is a perfect treat for a summer day, especially when it's flavored with fresh, ripe fruit. Lassis, as fans of Indian food will know, are similar to milkshakes, except they're made with yogurt rather than ice cream. And like a good milkshake, a lassi is versatile enough to carry a wide variety of flavors. If you're like me, you tasted your first lassi in an adventurous moment at an Indian restaurant. Chances are the flavor was mango, which is always a good choice but especially now when fresh mangoes are abundant.

With the exception of an appliance for stone-grinding and kneading whole grains, no fancy gadgets grace the shelves of Sukumaran Muralidharan's North Baltimore kitchen. Two cast-iron woks stacked on the stove, a blender, coffee grinder (for spices) and a motley selection of pots and pans give no hint that within 10 minutes, Muralidharan will produce a vegetarian Indian meal that rivals anything found in local restaurants. He tosses a handful of green chiles, peeled ginger and cilantro into the blender with a soupy mix of fermented cream of wheat and cumin seeds.

My wife has lost 15 pounds and feels great. She loves cooking, but recently put away her muffin pans, tubes for icing cakes and blender (she loves milkshakes and margaritas, but wants to cut them out of her diet). Any suggestions on healthy cooking contraptions I could buy her to encourage her to keep up her favorite hobby? There's no reason why your wife can't enjoy cooking good-for-you foods just as much as she used to love cooking with Crisco. First, retrieve the blender and wrap it up along with a copy of Judith Millidge's Handbook of Smoothies and Juicing.

Waking up and placing her feet on the marathon rug's "I can do 26.2!" slogan will surely get her out of the door and on the jogging trail. On the front: a diverse field of stick-figure runners journey toward the finish line. On the back: a label with space for the runner's name, race date and finish time. The 3 1/2 -foot-by-5 1/2 rug, made of hand-tufted acrylic, is available in blue, red or gold.
