The Baltimore Sun is launching a new food-truck finder. Here it is , in its beautiful beta version designed by Baltimore Sun Production Technology Manager Adam Marton. The trucks' locations were provided to the Sun by an association of Baltimore food trucks in the form of a monthly schedule. Obviously, the locations of an individual truck on a specific day may have changed since this schedule was created.  The Twitter box on the Sun's food-truck finder should is a good place to look for hour-by-hour changes.

Janet Brown from Scott Depot, W.Va., was in search of a recipe for making pizza rolls. She said that many years ago, Highland Elementary School in St. Albans, W.Va., which is now closed, used to sell the rolls as a fundraiser. She said she used to buy them by the dozen and freeze them so she would always have a good supply on hand. She thought they were the best she had ever tasted and was hoping someone from the area might have the old recipe. While I unfortunately didn't get a response from anyone who had the exact recipe Brown was looking for, I did find an excellent recipe for pizza rolls on a website called Tidy Mom , written by Cheryl Sousan , a freelance food and lifestyle blogger and photographer from St. Louis.

Fran Klees from Dowagiac, Mich., was looking for a recipe for Polish sauerkraut and sausage that contains vinegar and sugar as well as other traditional seasonings and is made in a slow cooker. I was a little surprised that I didn't receive any responses from readers to Klees' request, but with a little research I had no trouble finding several recipes that fit the bill. I decided to test a recipe from a food blog called Foodie Smash, written by Ashlee Warzin from El Paso, Texas.

"Watch your rods," I called. Almost instantly the two side lines went off."Fish on!" cried someone, and by the time fishermen got to the rods and started bringing the fish in, two rods in the stern rod-holders arched as chubby 2-pound bluefish tried to separate me from my lures.I eased my Catherine M into the deeper water off Love Point as the fishermen fought the fish to the fish box. We reset the lines and I headed the boat back toward the fish.One of the party came into the cabin and asked how I knew the fish were going to bite.

Despite an expected decline in revenue from a sagging real estate market, Baltimore County can afford pay increases for its workers, according to a fact-finder who recommended 3 percent pay raises for employees of two unions in negotiations with the county. "The county's financial situation is not so dire as to require a wage freeze," the fact-finder, Robert T. Simmelkjaer, wrote in his decision, issued Thursday.

Baltimore County's labor commissioner rejected yesterday most of a fact-finder's recommendations in negotiations between the county and two unions, including one that the county give the workers a 3 percent pay raise. The unions said they will seek nonbinding arbitration to resolve the dispute. In a one-page letter to the attorney representing the unions -- the Baltimore County Federation of Public Employees and the Baltimore County Federation of Public Health Nurses -- Labor Commissioner George E. Gay wrote that the county "will not be following the recommendations" in six of the eight areas that the fact-finder addressed.

Gilda Weinfeld from Pikesville said that last year during Passover, an acquaintance sent her some homemade chocolate-covered matzo. She said it was absolutely delicious. But when she called her friend to thank her for the gift, she asked for the recipe - and her friend politely declined to give it to her. Not to worry - there are plenty of good recipes for homemade chocolate matzo both online and in print. My go-to recipe for this holiday treat comes from "A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking" by Marcy Goldman.

Barbra Katz Rosenberg from Baltimore, a frequent contributor to this column, was seeking the recipe for the sticky buns that were served in the cafeterias at many Baltimore City schools back in the '60s. She said before her family moved to Baltimore County, her lunch would consist of one of the sticky buns, a hard pretzel and orange juice five days a week. "I didn't know about carbs way back then," she said. She would really like to be able to taste the sticky buns again. I received several responses from readers who offered recipes that they thought made reasonable copies of the popular school-system sticky bun from years back.

Kathleen McMalin from Potter Valley, Calif., sent in a recipe for torta del re - king's cake in Italian.

Paula Pumphrey from Glen Burnie was hoping someone would have the recipe for the fudge that was made and sold for a fundraiser for Public School 84 and the Salem Lutheran Church around the corner when she was growing up in South Baltimore. She said her mother, who is 90, also attended P.S. 84 and remembers the fudge fondly. She said the fudge was about a half-inch thick and snapped when you bit into it. It immediately melted in your mouth. Marilyn Vogel from Baltimore had the recipe Pumphrey was searching for. She said she was the secretary at P.S. 84, also known as the Thomas Johnson School, for 30 years and was a member of the school's "Mother's Club," which made the fudge.

Ed Levy from Baltimore was hoping I would be able to get the recipe for the salted chocolate caramel pie that he and his wife so enjoyed at Bottega, the new restaurant located in the Station North neighborhood in Baltimore. It was one of two desserts on the menu the night he and his wife dined there with friends, and they all thought it was one of the single best desserts they had ever had. They ordered one slice to share and liked it so much they asked for a second. I contacted Adrien Aeschliman, the chef-owner of Bottega, and he graciously provided me with his recipe for the pie. He said he adapted it from a recipe from Marlow & Sons restaurant in Brookyln, N.Y. This deliciously decadent creation may not be for the inexperienced cook.
