A while back I had a request from Steve Frazer of Reisterstown who was seeking the recipe for the chocolate chip coffee cake that used to be sold at Miller's Delicatessen in Northwest Baltimore in the 1970s. At the time I ran his query I received an email from Leslie Miller-Scherr , whose family was the original owner of the deli. She told me that back in the day they purchased the cake from a local caterer, Cyril and Ruth's, but she thought they were no longer operating.

Steve Frazer from Reisterstown was looking for the recipe for the chocolate chip cake that used to be sold at Miller's Delicatessen in Northwest Baltimore in the 1970s. He remembers that it was a very dense cake and most likely made with sour cream with an abundance of tiny chocolate chips and a sugary crunchy topping. I received an email from Leslie Miller-Scherr of Baltimore in response to Frazer's query. She said that her family was the original owner of Miller's deli and that she remembers the cake well.

The author and filmmaker Nora Ephron, who died Tuesday night, had a famous love affair with food. Ephron was the maven who knew where to get the best coffee cake, cappuccino and smoked salmon in New York City. She didn't just back into the idea of making the (kind of) Julia Child biopic, "Julia & Julia," her last movie. The movies Ephron made are full of food-love. There's Meg Ryan's "high-maintenance, dressing-on-the-side instructions to waiters in"When Harry Met Sally" -- I just want it the way I want it. " That same movie, of course, is responsible for one of the most famous restaurant scenes in movie history, set in Katz's Delicatessen.  A cookbook writer is the heroine of "Heartburn," the movie version of Ephron's novel into which she threaded some of her own favorite recipes.

All time can be divided roughly into two parts: Now and the Time Before Now. And, generally speaking, people usually prefer one or the other.A lot of people I know are enthusiastic about Now. I, however, am leaning in the direction of the Time Before Now. For one thing, it seemed a simpler time. Not complex and confusing in the way that Now is.And for another, it was a time that didn't require so much caution and second-guessing about ordinary events in one's daily life.The problem I have with Now is its rapidly escalating list of things one can no longer do.Here, for example, are some notes from my journal about things I didn't do last week.

Gail Herbig of Pasadena lucked out when she requested a sour cream apricot-almond coffee cake that was a first-place winner at the Maryland State Fair in 1996. "I had a recipe and tried the cake three times, but it crashed each time. Even so it is such a delicious cake; there were never any leftovers. I would appreciate a correct recipe."Her answer came from the winner herself, Judy Underwood of Annapolis, who wrote: "Here is the recipe I entered in the Maryland State Fair in 1996, and it won first place in the Land O'Lakes sour cream quick-bread contest."

KUWAIT CITY, Kuwait - It's after midnight, but the dozen men of the Sabah al-Salem neighborhood gathered in a second-floor banquet room have no plans to go home yet. They order more cups of tea and coffee. They light cigarettes. They prop themselves up on plush crimson pillows. They want to talk more about a possible U.S.-led war against their neighbor, Iraq. A young schoolteacher opposed to war asks how an Iraqi family would feel if U.S. soldiers accidentally killed an innocent son or daughter during an attack.

BERLIN, 2:30 p.m.Potsdamer Platz is a sea of mud and machinery as the largest construction site in Europe emerges from a wasteland that once stood between two segments of the Berlin Wall. By the turn of the century, this will be a complex of corporate headquarters and government offices, but it has to be built first, and there seems to be a dearth of construction workers at the present moment. Where are they? Drinking beer? That's a good guess, but it's wrong. They're thronging the Stehcafes ("standing-cafes")
