Sue Sober of Baltimore was in search of the recipe for the potato chip cookies that were sold at Hutzler's department store. The last of the legendary department stores that provided goods and services to Baltimoreans for 132 years, closed over three decades ago. Many people still have fond memories of not only of the merchandise side of the store but its restaurants, tea rooms and bakeries. As luck would have it, Joyce Smith of Arbutus, who worked at Hutzler's in Westview until it closed in the late 1980s, sent in a recipe for the potato chip cookies.

The problem could result in the loss of data without warning.

NEW YORK -- Blue-chip stocks fell sharply yesterday in heavy trading, almost erasing Wednesday's gains, while the broader market was mixed. Investors grew cautious, analysts said, as many earnings reports failed to justify the market's current lofty levels, and a weak bond market failed to offer support.The Dow Jones industrial average fell 29.07 points, to 3,226.74, as New York Stock Exchange volume reached 234.6 million shares traded, up from 228.1 million Wednesday. Losing issues slightly outpaced gainers as the Big Board composite index slipped 1.30, to 228.89.

The potato-chip maker that bet its customers they couldn't "eat just one" now is trying to appeal to customer fears of being fat. In response to growing concerns about obesity, Frito-Lay Inc. is trumpeting a new, healthier chip that lacks trans fat, dubbed the "bad fat" by nutritionists. The Plano, Texas-based company is cooking its Lay's potato chips, Doritos, Fritos, Ruffles, Tostitos and Cheetos in oils that contain no trans fats. It began marketing the change this week in full-page advertisements in dozens of major newspapers and Hispanic publications.

Last week's trade between the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics, which sent pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for a prospect package that includes top 10 prospect Addison Russell, kicked off the MLB trade season in spectacular fashion. This week, we'll go through the Orioles system level by level and highlight players of value who could have new homes by the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline if the Orioles want to make a move.   High-A Frederick is where the Orioles can begin plucking the fruit of a strong 2013 draft for trade purposes, with some of the best-performing and more developmentally advanced players from that class getting their feet wet in the second half of the Carolina League.

When the Colonial Athletic Association unveiled its preseason poll in January, Penn State and Towson were atop the poll, while Delaware was bringing up the rear. That snub has resonated with the Blue Hens. “I think any team that is picked to be less successful than what they think they can be is going to play with a little chip on their shoulder,” coach Bob Shillinglaw said Wednesday. “Coming back, everybody's trying to work through the season. You're seeing some games where there are some surprises here and there, but I think this team is playing well together.

The Northern Virginia couple throwing down $100 tokens at Maryland Live casino last month may have looked like aspiring high-rollers, but police say they were gambling with fake chips. Maryland State Police have charged a husband and wife from Annandale, Va., with conspiracy and theft after determining that they were using counterfeit chips at the Hanover casino. Authorities are looking for two other suspects in a similar, but unrelated, case. According to police, Rosa A. Nguyen, 36, purchased $150,000 worth of counterfeit casino chips — which had been altered to appear to be Maryland Live chips — over the Internet for $12,000.

Ah, the Mule. The Buck. A magical combination of liquor and ginger - be it in ale or beer form - and a dose of citrus, creating one of Earth's finest and simplest delights. Every bar has it on their cocktail menu (and if they don't they certainly should) and most of them are pretty good, but we're always on the lookout for those common cocktails that are elevated above the rest. That cocktail is the Whiskey Ginger at Beatnik Bar. What elevates this particular common cocktail above the others?

At Quince Orchard in Montgomery County, Alex Twine played on teams that rarely lost. At Maryland, the junior linebacker has played on teams that have won just six of 24 games. The chip on the shoulders of players such as Twine is growing. “It's a chip that won't go away until we get the respect we deserve,” Twine said during Monday's Media Day in College Park. “We just feel that we're a lot better than people are making us out to be.” While Terps football coach Randy Edsall talked Monday about his team being good enough to win the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division and the ACC championship game in order to play in a Bowl Championship Series game, most websites and publications have the Terps picked between fourth and sixth in the seven-team division, though they have been picked to finish as high as third behind Clemson and Florida State.
