My son and I traveled to Anchorage, Alaska, to do some sightseeing and halibut fishing last May. We drove south along the Seward Highway, from Anchorage to Seward, a distance of about 125 miles, stopping frequently at pullovers to take in the views. It is almost impossible to drive this highway more than 5 miles at a time without stopping at a pullover to take in the views. Each stop was more beautiful than the last. This photo was taken at Bear Lake, which is just north of Seward. The mountain's reflection in the lake was a photo waiting to happen.

ONCE the local strawberries start showing up, life starts getting better. The first strawberries have started to appear at markets on the Eastern Shore, the part of Maryland that gets warmer sooner. From May to mid-June the strawberry harvest will march west, proceeding from the sandy soils of Anne Arundel to the mountain ridges of Garrett County, producing successive weeks of sweet fruit. The quality of the strawberry crop depends, of course, on how much rain and how much hot sun we get during the tumultuous Maryland spring.

NAME A STRETCH of North American coastline and a dish served there and chances are good that John Shields has been there, eaten that.

Fix, Freeze, Feast By Kati Neville and Lindsay Tkacsik You've Got It Made By Diane Phillips Harvard Common Press / 2008 / $14.95 The latest book from Diane Phillips, who calls herself "the Diva of Do-Ahead," has a range of recipes that can go into the refrigerator for a day or two, or the freezer for longer. That's a helpful option if you'd rather not wait for your made-ahead dish to thaw, or if you're running out of room in the freezer. Among the 150 recipes is a good selection of appetizers and "small bites," such as Smoked Salmon-Dill Puffs and Prosciutto Palmiers, that can be prepared ahead for a dinner party.

My husband and I recently had a fabulous New York City dinner. We started with appetizers from the chef at Tribeca Grill, moved up to an entree by the director of Windows on the World and enjoyed dessert from the owner of the Comfort Diner - all without leaving our Baltimore home. Chef on a Shoestring by Andrew Friedman (Simon & Schuster Paperbacks, 2004, $12), a great cookbook now out in paperback, made it possible. Filled with more than 120 recipes from noteworthy chefs, it lets home cooks attempt dishes they might find in fancy restaurants, at a fraction of the cost.

The United States has for decades operated a fleet of specially equipped submarines whose secret work is to comb deep waters for military intelligence virtually unobtainable by any other means, experts in naval warfare say.These spy submarines are the Navy's counterpart to reconnaissance satellites, but better in some respects. They can not only examine distant objects on the ocean floor but also sometimes retrieve or manipulate them.The naval experts said objects of interest include lost ships, submarines, planes, weapons, rockets, spacecraft and nuclear warheads, as well as functioning equipment, such as other countries' undersea cables and listening devices.

In the beautiful economy of the forest - or the urban backyard garden - leaves are nature's brilliant cookware. Banana leaves can be cut down to make plates or unfurled into wrappers perfect for steaming fish on a grill. Fig trees and grapevines yield leaves the exact size for enclosing, then grilling, a cube of feta, a sardine or a mint-studded lamb meatball. Before the invention of tinfoil or grilling baskets, pragmatic cooks picked their kitchen supplies from branches and found what they needed in the trees.

Just when we've fallen in love with Chilean sea bass, a group of chefs has risen to warn us we could love it to death. Only a few years ago, this was a fish living in obscurity in deep, cold ocean waters off South America and with the unappetizing name of Patagonian (or Antarctic) toothfish. But like an aspiring Hollywood starlet, its name was changed and it became a hit. No one cared that Chilean sea bass wasn't really a bass and didn't always come from Chile. With its white, moist flesh, it took leading roles in top American restaurants.
