* Item: Betty Crocker Stir 'n Bake Cake Mix* What you get: 6 servings* Cost: About $2* Preparation time: 21 to 26 minutes in conventional oven* Review: Our 9-year-old neighbor, Matt, pronounced this cake mix -- which requires only water and a bowl to mix the batter -- "very easy" to make. The cake is baked in a 6-inch by 8-inch pan that's included. The Devil's-Food version was "really chocolaty and sweet," Matt said. The Coffee Cake hides a layer of crumbly cinnamon streusel. Brownies and Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting are among other offerings.

PRODUCE GALORE 5430 Lynx Lane (Wilde Lake Village Center), Columbia. Hours: 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. (301) 596-5745.Don't be fooled by the name. You will indeed find bushels of broccoli here, but Produce Galore also has one of the best takeout selections around -- and it's all homemade.Most of the carryout is found at two "salad bars," though "salad bar" hardly does justice to such a wide range of choices, which change every day.One recent night I decided to graze and quickly assembled a dinner of fresh salad fixings, West African peanut soup with chopped scallions, deliciously rich beef stew, crusty au gratin potatoes, grilled chicken pasta salad, asparagus vinaigrette and creamy pasta primavera.

If you're out and about in the Glen Burnie area and in the mood for some good Greek, Italian or American food, stop by Romano's Restaurant on 6905 Ritchie Highway. The atmosphere is friendly, the staff is attentive and it's a good place to take the whole family. Owner Saki Stamidis, formerly of Greece, opened the restaurant in 1983. Remodeled in 1992, it maximizes its space by offering diners a continuous upholstered bench on three walls with chairs on the other sides of the tables, allowing two people to cuddle up or sit across from each other.

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.

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.

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.

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.

When it comes to crab cakes, I'm a modernist: Less is more. OK, you can put in a little seasoning and enough bread crumbs to hold the thing together. But forget all the extras - the little bits of green pepper, the parsley, the mayonnaise. I'm pleased to report that G&M Restaurant shares that view. G&M is a sprawling Linthicum institution with a sit-down restaurant, a lounge and a carryout operation that sells everything from hot pizza and hot dogs to seafood platters and strip steaks.
