Connie Crabtree showcased her culinary reputation as an innovative chef while owning and operating several intimate and casual restaurants on and off for more than 30 years. Today, she has swapped the daily restaurant grind for that of a successful and much in demand caterer. In 1973, with the help of several friends, the former Towson State College and Maryland Institute student opened Cacao Lane, a funky informal French restaurant, in Ellicott City. "The menu changed every day because we didn't have a freezer and entrees were chalked up on a blackboard," said Crabtree, with a laugh, from her Federal Hill catering company.

Connie Nielsen is probably best known as Lucilla, Russell Crowe's love in Gladiator. But the stunning, Danish-born actress' resume includes big-budget films (The Devil's Advocate, Basic), indies (One Hour Photo, Brothers) and TV (she subbed for Law & Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay during her recent maternity leave). That, and she's the live-in girlfriend of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich. The actress' latest film is the Iraq war drama The Situation. The Situation is about the Iraq war. Brothers is about Afghanistan.
