Artist Helen Beckstrom's Reservoir Street house is unmistakable in this historic Mount Royal Terrace portion of Reservoir Hill, where turn-of-the-century brick and brownstone homes dominate the neighborhood. Her window frames are painted in soft purple, while the door and its frame are a bright red, coordinating with the earth-toned hues of the rich brownstone exterior. The Jones Falls Expressway lies just yards away, but the traffic is heard but not seen in this Baltimore neighborhood just south of Druid Hill Park.

If you're stir-frying on a gas stove, the best type of wok to use is round-bottomed with a ring stand. Position it wide edge up, replacing the metal burner support. If you use an electric stove, a flat-bottomed wok, set directly on the heating element without a ring stand, works better.-- Cole's Cooking A to Z

At this time last year, Inez Goodwin was heating her Baltimore home with the gas stove in her kitchen. Dangerous, yes, but her old furnace had broken down and, at a price of more than $4,000, a new one was too expensive for the 48-year-old Baltimore cook who makes $9 an hour. Then she found out about the state's weatherization program, and this month, instead of reaching for the stove when the skies turned cold, she reached for her new thermostat and the free new furnace that came with it. Every year, the state of Maryland and Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. help more than 800 families like Goodwin's insulate their homes against the cold.

Dear Ms. Household Environmentalist: I am about to install a gas range in my home. I have a memory that in one of your articles you stressed the importance of installing a hood to expel the fumes. I asked my gas utility, and they say it's not necessary, but I wanted to double-check. I would appreciate any information you have on this subject.Dear Reader: Technically, your utility may be right. If you are remodeling an existing kitchen, or just switching from an electric stove to a gas stove, the Uniform Building Code adopted by your state doesn't require you to install a mechanical fan if you have a nearby window that opens.

Turkey, duck, chicken or turducken — whatever you're cooking on Thanksgiving, make sure you're not whipping up a dangerous side of carbon monoxide. With a busy holiday and a house full of guests, it can be easy to leave the oven on and forget to ventilate properly, officials warn. The Baltimore Fire Department saw an "alarming strike," with 45 calls last Thanksgiving for carbon monoxide alarms, nearly five times as many as the average day, spokesman Ian Brennan said. "It's a completely preventable situation on Thanksgiving Day," he said.

In all, the blaze at the Sutton Walk complex caused an estimated $750,000 in damages, the fire department said.
