Summertime is salad season. At Fox & Fern Cafe in Forest Hill, chef Michael White mixes fresh greens with crisp bacon and sharp cheddar to make a hearty salad inspired by traditional California ingredients like sprouts and avocado. He tosses the salad with an herbaceous green goddess dressing that gets a  savory boost from blended anchovies. The crunchy vegetables and cool, creamy dressing are a perfect fit for al fresco dinners on warm summer evenings.   California Salad Yield: Four appetizers or two dinner salads, two cups of dressing   For the dressing: 3 anchovy fillets 1 teaspoon minced garlic ¾ cup mayonnaise ¾ cup plain yogurt ½ cup fresh parsley (packed)

"Goddess: Martha Graham's Dancers Remember," by Robert Tracy. Limelight Editions. 323 pages.Calling a book about Martha Graham "Goddess" rather than the more obvious "Priestess" is attention-getting. Graham, the leader of the modern dance movement from the 1930s through the 1960s, never dubbed herself a goddess as Robert Tracy does here. But there is a rationale in his title. His book is a compilation of interviews and reflections about Graham by dancers who worked with her throughout the decades.

Marion Scheuerman of Baltimore was looking for the recipe for the green goddess salad dressing that was served at the White Coffee Pot Family Inn restaurants and the White Coffee Pot Jr. coffee shops many years ago. Sadly, the last of the 33 locally owned establishments closed in 1993 . I didn't have any luck locating the salad dressing recipe from anyone associated with the White Coffee Pot chain, and my research turned up many versions of...

Actress E. Faye Butler does not want her work to be captured on celluloid or to gather dust in a film canister. Instead, she hones her craft onstage, where every day the show can be created anew. "It is one performance a day that whoever is sitting in the seat gets to see once, and it never happens again. I don't care how long the show runs, that performance won't happen again," Butler said. "There is something wonderful about giving a gift to someone that you can't replace." Butler has begun fine-tuning her version of Erzulie, the goddess of love, in Center Stage's current production of Once on This Island.

When celebrities saunter down red carpets draped in flowing, curve-conscious, goddess-style dresses, they're not just making a fashion statement, they're making a historical one. Why does the popular dress keep showing up - from royal courts to marble statues to runways? Fashion theorist, historian and author Valerie Steele can tell you. "It's a fascinating subject," says Steele, who will speak about the impact classical Greek dress has had on modern fashion in a lecture titled "Goddess: The Influence of Classical Dress" at 2 p.m. today at the Walters Art Museum.

There is something about a long, willowy gown that has enchanted designers and artists for time immemorial. In ancient Egypt and Greece, gods and temptresses such as Circe and Cleopatra were etched in history wearing dresses that softly fluttered in the wind. In China, deities such as Kwan Yin, the famed Goddess of Mercy, were depicted in magical, flowing robes. More recently, modern-day idols from Nicole Kidman to Jennifer Lopez have memorably stepped out in beautifully draped gowns. The goddess gown, indeed, has shown remarkable durability in often-fleeting fashion circles.

KATMANDU, Nepal -- The little girl became Nepal's official living goddess the day before she turned 4, a grandly ceremonial event that made her parents enormously proud, for a divine spirit was about to enter their daughter and she would be worshiped by the nation, carried around on a gilded chariot and bowed down to, even by the king.But now, seven years later, her parents, Amrit and Namita Shakya, are sorry they allowed their girl to be plucked from obscurity and turned into the pampered goddess, the royal kumari.

For nearly a decade, neither snow nor sleet -  not to mention having to get out of bed early on a Saturday morning - could keep us from our appointment with modern dance classes at the Howard County Center for the Arts. With an average age teetering on the edge of 55, the core group of 10 to 12 regulars referred to ourselves as the “goddesses,” and we ruled - at least among other similarly seasoned generations of terpsichores. From time to time, one of the younger ballerinas from Kathi Ferguson 's 9 a.m. dance class would check in. Few stayed for the entire session, but those who did were treated to a string of master teachers from area colleges offering a variety of modern techniques.

The Nobel Peace Prize concert is not the first place you'd think of for a show by Robyn, Swedish pop goddess. Especially not last year's. It was a serious event with serious artists to honor a serious man, incarcerated Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo. Elvis Costello was there, Denzel Washington presented, and Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden were in attendance. Most performers would be fazed by that kind of crowd, but not Robyn, who performs Tuesday at Rams Head Live . She tore through three songs of her widely popular "Body Talk" trilogy without breaking a sweat, and three days later she was headlining a string of her own shows in Stockholm.

Why winter? Why this prolonged period of Code Gray? Weren't our eyes made for color, our skin for warmth? Why this cold, dreary season when birds abandon us and gardens stop producing their fruits and flowers? Why this endless time of skyrocketing heating bills and bone-wearying shoveling? Why this sentence of home detention when, racked with cabin fever, we hunker down by the fire or get fuzzy-brained before the TV? What have we done to deserve this? Surely someone has offended the gods.

Just as cooking shows succeed or fail based on the personality of the host, a cooking blog prospers only when the writer's voice entices. That's the case with the Domestic Goddess (www.domestic goddess.ca), whose tone is as warm and comforting as the smell of baking bread. The blog's design is fresh, the food photos are scrumptious, and the dessert-focused recipes are simple to understand. But it's the Goddess' ability to tie any subject from her personal life to food that makes her blog such a treat to read.

Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, was the name given to history's first recorded goddess by the ancient Sumerians, a Babylonian people who lived some 4,000 years ago between what is today Baghdad and the Persian Gulf. Inanna possessed awesome powers as well as great wisdom, so it's no wonder painter Edna Emmet, whose lovely exhibition opens at Resurgam Gallery tonight, was inspired to create dozens of abstract-expressionist paintings inspired by this female deity's legend. Emmet, who teaches art at the Waldorf School and other area institutions, scrupulously avoids recognizable images in her paintings, which are full of saturated colors and sensual, abstract forms and whose passionate intensity approaches that with which the ancients must have worshipped their goddess.
