My family did not patronize Baltimore's suburban shopping centers in the days after Thanksgiving. We were downtown people and adhered to the customs of the day. I watched the old Hochschild-Kohn Toytown Parade from the curb at Maryland Avenue and 29th Street; a night or two later, we drove downtown while the stores were closed and took in the window displays. Finally, days later, we might begin Christmas shopping, possibly with a breakfast at the Read's drugstore, one of the anchors of the busy Howard and Lexington corner.

It sounds like the start of a bad joke: "One time in Vietnam, I had the best margarita. " Wait, what? No, but seriously, at Saigon Today in Canton, I found an unexpectedly delicious South of the Border gem hidden among the specialty cocktails: the Cinnamon Margarita. When Saigon opened this summer (in the spot formerly occupied by Yellow Dog Tavern), I was pretty pumped. Not only is it hard to find really good pho (a Vietnamese noodle soup) in Baltimore, it's just difficult to find an Asian restaurant that serves anything beyond imported beers and wine.

Coming up on its fourth anniversary, Bluegrass Tavern has quietly been earning top marks as a carefully crafted American cuisine establishment in an area that has seen a wave of revitalization, much to the restaurant's benefit. And with a relatively wide selection of whiskeys and bourbons at the bar's disposal, it should be no surprise that the cocktail program is equally carefully crafted and heavy on the brown stuff. Bartender Jenna Kumm has put together a complex set of libations to fill the list, one in particular serving as a next-level whiskey sour: the Wake and Bake.

I closed my eyes, inhaled gently and imagined hard, but the Timonium traffic din quickly short-circuited the conceit that placed me at the Inner Harbor. How silly; maybe more than most, I knew the lovely nutmeg scent wafting downwind from the McCormick plant two miles north hadn't perfumed the downtown air for over two decades. On Dec. 8, 1988, the McCormick Spice Company announced it would abandon its landmark Inner Harbor building and the Rouse Company would tear it down. The lawsuit I filed and the "Demolition Makes No Scents" campaign I spearheaded for Baltimore Heritage quickly turned legions of citizens into historic preservationists.

Q. Is it true that cinnamon can lower blood sugar? I am a diabetic (type 2) and fairly active, swimming every day. My doctor doesn't want to put me on insulin. I take glipizide, but it isn't completely effective. How much powdered cinnamon would it take to have an impact? A. Animal research has shown that cinnamon does indeed make cells more responsive to insulin. Theoretically, this could lead to better glucose control. Although clinical trials are still in the planning phase, one nutrition researcher has suggested that people like you might benefit.

Question: : I have type 2 diabetes, and I have recently started taking cinnamon capsules to help control my blood sugar. I have been extremely pleased with the results so far. The metformin I was taking was never as consistent at controlling my blood sugar as the cinnamon has been. Are there any negatives to taking cinnamon? Answer: : Although cinnamon may work more consistently for you, there is much more research supporting the beneficial effect of metformin on blood sugar. You should make sure your doctor is aware of your regimen, so you can work together to control your type 2 diabetes.

Carol Husband of Hunker, Pa., wrote, "I make nut-and-poppy-seed rolls, and I use commercial poppy-seed filling, which is OK but not like homemade. My mother was an excellent baker and used to make poppy-seed filling from scratch. I never got the recipe. Would any of your readers possibly have a poppy-seed filling recipe?" A response came from Pam Sutton of Odenton, who said she got the recipe from "The Czech Book: Recipes and Traditions" (Penfield Press, 1981) by Pat Martin. "Poppy-seed fillings are very common in Europe," Sutton wrote.

Mother Teresa in a cinnamon bun in a coffeehouse in Nashville? No, no, no! That's not Mother Teresa. Bill and Pat Kelly, TJI readers in Northeast Baltimore, see it differently, and I think they're right. They slipped Disney's "Pocahontas" in the VCR Friday night, and suddenly it hit them: Grandmother Willow. It's not Mother Teresa in the bun, it's Pocahontas' spiritual adviser. Having a 4-year-old daughter and having seen "Pocahontas" about 20 times by now, I have to agree. There's a lot more Grandmother Willow than Mother Teresa in the bun. And this figures: Disney is Everywhere, overtly and subliminally seducing America with its marketing imagery.

Cindy Mosier from Dowagiac, Mich., was searching for a recipe for making a cinnamon loaf similar to the one she enjoyed growing up that she said was made by a bakery in her hometown in the 1950s and '60s. She said it was baked in a loaf pan and was moist yet firm. When it was turned upside down after baking, it had a wonderful gooey caramel topping and swirls of cinnamon throughout the loaf. She said she has searched for a similar recipe but has not had any luck finding a really good one. Suzanne Boyle who lives and works in Belleville, Ill., and is the food editor at the Belleville News-Democrat saw Mosier's request and said, "I have never been to that bakery [but]

While the weather forecast for Saturdays' Ravens game is in the high 40s - not exactly Green Bay territory - it can get chilly after being outside for a while. One of the best ways to keep the cold at bay is with a cup of spicy hot chocolate. Traditionally, hot chocolate is just a thicker version of chocolate milk. This version is rich and full of character, thanks to cinnamon, orange peel and chiles. Don't be afraid - it's not as spicy as you might think. There is a little bite at the end, but nothing that will make you breathe fire.

Lots of pets will be getting presents for the holidays this year. And Bo Obama is no exception. In fact, the world knows what the First Dog is going to get. On Wednesday, President Obama went Christmas shopping, stopping at Best Buy (to pick up some video games and iTunes gift cards, probably for his girls) and at PetSmart to get a little something for the pup. It looks like Bo is going to spend the holidays chomping on one seriously large bone. And I'm not sure, but it looks like that might be a bag of treats in the President's hand.

Halloween drinks are, for the most part, novelty items. Fake eyeballs, candy corn and even dry ice are all unfortunately used to dramatic effect this time of year. I have never been a fan of silly or gimmicky drink accessories. It makes me think that the bartender has something to hide. What's behind the cuteness winds up being an overly sweet or sour weak drink that I just wasted good money on. Luckily, the good people at Jack's Bistro are here to save us from such garish garnishes.

The homespun goodness of freshly baked cinnamon rolls does not have to be lost when you eliminate the fat. We started out with an original recipe in which the sweet yeast dough was enriched with butter (or margarine) and eggs. We replaced a portion of the butter with pressed non-fat cottage cheese and added a small amount of vegetable oil to ensure tenderness. We also eliminated one egg yolk and used skim milk instead of whole to make a leaner dough.But it is the rich, sticky sweetness oozing from the cinnamon rolls that makes them truly memorable.

Q. I heard that cinnamon helps with blood sugar control in diabetes. Is this true, and if so, how much does it take? A. We have heard from a number of people that one teaspoon of cinnamon on oatmeal or in other food can help lower blood sugar. Preliminary test-tube research suggests that this spice enhances cellular response to insulin and facilitates the passage of glucose into cells. Diabetics must inform their doctors if they add cinnamon to the diet and also monitor blood sugar levels carefully.

Fall - finally! I, for one, am in desperate need of a crisp, warm, comforting cocktail to ring in the cooler weather. Think spicy, rich flavors, lush, dark cognacs, seasonal apple and pumpkin accents, a touch of mystery. If you're craving a good autumn drink as much as I am, step into the strange and whimsically macabre world of Annabel Lee Tavern in Highlandtown. Proprietor Kurt Bragunier has been serving up delicious, dark drinks at his Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant for four years and admits his favorite drink, back on menu this season after a two-year hiatus, is a bit of an enigma to patrons.

Mary Harris from Nottingham was looking for recipe she has lost for a blueberry breakfast cake made in a loaf pan. Gladys Wilt from Lothian sent in a recipe she had for Alabama Blueberry Bread that she thinks is really great and that Harris might want to try. The bread is very easy to make and little bit out of the ordinary. It is an interesting cross between a classic blueberry teacake and spice cake. I also liked that the recipe had you crush some of the berries before adding them to the batter because it gave the cake a lovely color.
