Purging fat from baked goods is always difficult because fat performs several functions in a recipe.Fat makes baked goods tender by coating the proteins in flour and preventing them from joining together to form tough strands of gluten. Fat contributes to moistness and, when creamed with sugar, helps lighten and aerate the batter. And, as any expert baker can tell you, fat carries flavor.Fruit puree can stand in for fat largely because the pectin and other soluble fibers it contains can also coat flour proteins.

Who says a restaurant can't offer both picturesque views and a satisfying dining experience? Actually, everybody says that. But, come on. Surely it's not always the case that a restaurant that provides views as beautiful and uplifting as the Severn Inn's - views of the Naval Academy Bridge, the Maryland State House and the Severn River itself - will turn out to be as much of a letdown as the Severn Inn was.

Lisl Christie from Santa Rosa, Calif., was looking for a recipe for a carrot cake that she has lost that used to be printed on a sugar package. Ruth Bly from Winchester, Va., sent in a recipe that was given to her by a friend that she says she has been using for over 30 years. While the recipe may not be the exact one that Christie was in search of, Bly says everyone seems to enjoy this cake very much. Her recipe is for a simple, old-fashioned one-bowl cake. Now that you can buy packaged grated carrots in most grocery stores, you can whip this homemade goodie up in under 10 minutes.

There was a time in my past when a simple phone message -- "carrot cake today" -- would send me scurrying out of the office, headed for a rendezvous with the dessert at the now defunct Buttercup Tea Room restaurant in Annapolis. Since then, my carrot cake fervor has faded. But the other day, as I drove 60 miles scooping up slices of carrot cake from three different locations, some of the old ardor returned.

When most people think about Creamsicles, they probably picture the fruity frozen dessert. Monica Williams, however, envisioned a cookie. Williams, who owns the baking operation From Momma's Kitchen, has made a second career out of concocting decadent desserts. The 43-year-old former principal of Celebration Christian Academy in Columbia has been experimenting with cookies ever since she started baking at just 8 years old in her mom's kitchen in Philadelphia. “I added M&M's to the first batch of chocolate chip cookies I made,” she remembers.

Mary Fitzsimmons from Crossville, Tenn., was looking for a recipe she had lost for carrot cake in a loaf pan. She said that the recipe she had made two loaves and that it had a somewhat "spicier" taste than most carrot cake. Darlene Ross from Towson sent in a recipe she likes for making carrot-pecan bread. She thought that her recipe sounded similar to what Fitzsimmons was searching for. Her recipe produced a very hearty, dense bread that would be wonderful served with some cream cheese for breakfast or tea. It keeps well and with the recipe yielding two loaves you will likely have one you can freeze for later or give away.

Verla Felts of Whiteford is seeking a carrot cake, sometimes referred to as a carrot fruitcake. "It is not like a regular fruitcake. It is very moist and not as rich. We love it." Elizabeth McClintock of Keizer, Ore., responded. "Seeing the request, I couldn't help but stop and copy the recipe I have had and used for the last 60 or more years! One day a very dear neighbor of ours gave us our first taste of her carrot cake. "That was long before most people had heard of `carrot cake' and Pillsbury hadn't put any in a box!

Because I am on a restricted diet, can you provide me with a low-fat recipe for a pastry crust? You're not alone in your quest for a low-fat crust, but a good one is hard to find. "There is no successful low-fat recipe," said Barbara Farner, extension educator in nutrition and wellness at the University of Illinois Extension. "Crisp roll-out cookies and piecrusts are two dishes without successful low-fat alternatives." Farner offered these suggestions for those on restricted diets: Select an oil-based piecrust recipe that uses the more healthful canola or olive oil. Such recipes would contain the same amount of fat, but they would contain less saturated fat. Switch to a graham-cracker crust, which requires less fat than that found in a traditional pastry crust.

The Montebello Deli & Cafe is a small oasis of urban civility along a busy stretch of Harford Road. Outside, the deli has a few chairs for sidewalk eating nestled among flower boxes filled with impatiens. Inside, bleached-wood floors and a tin ceiling give the space a warm but up-to-date feel. There are plenty of magazines and newspapers, and a computer is available in one corner (although there is a charge for using it). On a recent visit, the television was tuned to CNN and the radio was playing WYPR - news junky heaven.
