Peter Bowe and his wife, Barbara Stewart, chose their waterfront townhome for its location. An end unit at the tip of a pier in the HarborView complex, the home soars next to Baltimore's harbor, affording spectacular views, a stellar seat for Pier Six concerts and a quick, five-minute commute to Bowe's job as president of Ellicott Dredges in South Baltimore. “I describe it by saying you can fish out of every room in the house except the kitchen,” quips Bowe. “You look out the window every day, and you're connected to the city and the water,” Stewart continues, “but it's remarkably quiet.” Bowe, 58, and Stewart, 51, a retired executive at JP Morgan, share a life goal of spending more time with friends and family, and this house, which they purchased a year ago, is an idyllic spot.

There's more cooking at Westwood Unique Furnishings & Antiques than meets the eye. Wander past the antique chests and art deco lamps to the back of the shop, and customers might be surprised to see a large kitchen fully stocked with pots and pans and plenty of spatulas for serving hearty meals. And that's exactly what the kitchen is used for. For the past three years, Westwood's owner, Ingrid Melber, has turned over her shop's large back kitchen to her friend and personal chef, Alba Johnson, on Friday nights for Mediterranean cooking classes.

Bushmill Tavern is the restaurant/bar that every neighborhood wishes it had. There's nothing fancy about the place, from the bare bones decor to the burger-centric menu, but thanks to friendly service and a ton of talent in the kitchen, locals could eat at Bushmill every night and never get bored. The Abingdon restaurant opened in February. In May, chef Mark Littleton took over in the kitchen. Littleton, who developed a loyal following in the city during his stints at Annabel Lee Tavern and the now-shuttered Adam's Eve, keeps the menu casual but shows off his cooking chops with top-notch execution and creative touches to standard dishes.

"Remove eggs from the refrigerator 30 minutes before use. This helps to keep mayonnaise from curdling, egg whites will whisk to a greater volume, and shells are less likely to crack during boiling."

Joshua Cain felt miserable as his Engine 58 crew gathered in the kitchen of their Annapolis Road firehouse after a brutal blaze that ripped through several rowhouses and took hours to control. Only two months into the job as a Baltimore firefighter, he had found a dog that looked just like his childhood Belgian shepherd-poodle badly burned and not moving inside one of the ravaged homes. Cain and his colleagues sat around the kitchen table, telling stories of their own dogs. The camaraderie made him feel "like part of the team," Cain said.

I'm confused about choosing a color to paint my kitchen. I've heard that green is the color of the year. And then I hear about gray being the new neutral. What are the best colors to paint the kitchen? A kitchen should be an inviting gathering space, so warmer or brighter tones are ideal, such as deep ivories, rich coppers, luscious reds, golden yellows and yellow-greens. Be sure to take countertops, appliances and floors into consideration when selecting your color. You'll want something that complements these accents and flows naturally into the surrounding rooms of your home.

When Salt opened four years ago, I don't think anyone was surprised that a chef with Jason Ambrose's resume would be turning out excellent food. The unexpected thing about Salt was how thoroughly uncompromising its vision was from the start. Here was a neighborhood tavern that refused to act like one. Right away, there were those amazing green lamps, fixtures from another planet that effectively announced a new way of looking at things. And the opening menu was impressively compact, robust, and driven by Ambrose's interests and tastes.

We bought our house almost 30 years ago, but even then the real estate agent was selling us on the big kitchen — relatively speaking. The dining room and the living room were no bigger than sandboxes, but she made the point that families never spend much time in those formal rooms anyway. So the builder had devoted most of the first-floor space to the kitchen, with room for a table and chairs, a highchair and a toddler's playthings. All these years later, the kitchen — the heart of the home, I think — has officially morphed into an entertainment area, where friends and family gather while the cook cooks.

I want to start a compost pile, but I'm worried that kitchen scraps will attract animals from the woods nearby. Any thoughts? Usually kitchen scraps are a small portion of a pile's ingredients. Most kitchen scraps are small pieces, damaged or bruised. They begin decomposing while still in the pail. Kitchen compost pails made with lids that have a filter are very effective is eliminating odor. By the time you dump the pail, scraps are usually beyond being palatable to animals. Throw other organic matter on top. You can also bury the scraps in garden soil.

Throwing a party is no reason to panic ­ - or spend a fortune. One of Chef Nikki McGowan's go-to party dishes is a huge pot of mussels, which she loves because they are simple to prepare and inexpensive - but also delicious and fun to eat.  McGowan, who teaches cooking classes for kids and adults at CKCS Foods (ckcsweb.com), serves the mussels in big bowls with lots of bread for dipping. Kids love getting a little messy, and even the less-adventurous eaters can be coaxed into dipping a piece of crusty bread into the sauce.  For adults, the dish's exotic flavors are a hit. And for the host, mussels mean only a few minutes in the kitchen - and a small price tag, even when feeding a crowd.

When Evelyn Gorman bought her then-10-year-old contemporary brick townhouse in Ruxton 25 years ago, change was the first order of business. To this seasoned interior designer from New York City, there was no reason not to create everything in her style - one she calls "country French in an eclectic, sophisticated approach. " The obvious starting point was getting rid of the 1980s kitchen that was prominently avocado green. "I have always tried to be true to my own design concepts," said the award-winning designer and former interior design columnist for the Baltimore Jewish Times.

On Thursday,  Vivo Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar in Hanover will debut a biweekly series of Italian movie nights. Each movie night will feature a four-course prix-fixe menu inspired by that night's film.  For the series opener, "The Godfather," Vivo's Sicilian-inspired menu includes the Five Family Salad; meatballs and grilled sausages in a five-hour red sauce, like the one Clemenza taught Michael Corleone how to make; and for dessert, cannoli,...

Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

Fazzini's Taverna had been open only about six weeks when we visited on a Saturday night. The restaurant, which occupies the old Piv's location on York Road in Cockeysville, was very crowded, with a 45-minute wait for a table if you were silly enough not to make a reservation on a Saturday night. There is a good explanation for the out-the-door crowds. Fazzini's Taverna is just about the most all-around satisfying restaurant I've reviewed in months and months. We had a great meal here, excellent service and a wonderful time.

Fall is a time for fresh starts, and there is no better place to begin than the kitchen. The kids are back in school, no longer hanging on the refrigerator door, waiting for the contents to change like some kind of Web page that's updating. But the kitchen will be the hub for meals, homework and holidays in the months ahead, and there's no reason why it shouldn't have some eye-catching new looks to please its regular occupants. In the interest of expediency, we did some shopping in a newish wing of Towson Town Center, where Sur La Table has just joined Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn in a trifecta of kitchen chic.

When friends ask Jakki Wienecke to suggest a body lotion to relieve dry skin, the owner of Divine Creations Aromatherapy tells them to raid their kitchen pantry instead of going to the drugstore. Peel the rind of a lemon and soak the pieces in olive oil and slather it on your body, says Wienecke, the former owner of Body Logic Wellness Spa in Bel Air. The lemon contains antioxidants while the olive oil boosts your immune system, says the Bel Air resident. “All lotions begin with oil and they add water to it,” Wienecke says.

The Woman's Industrial Kitchen, the most recent incarnation of the beloved restaurant on North Charles Street, has closed its doors. A Baltimore comfort-food staple for more than 130 years before its closing in 2002, the restaurant -- formerly known as the Woman's Industrial Exchange -- served as a counterpart to the exchange's arts space. The restaurant was given new life in late 2011 when Irene Smith, owner of the Souper Freak soup truck, restored and reopened the establishment . Paula Hensley, the operations coordinator for the Woman's Industrial Exchange, said the restaurant closed about two months ago when its lease ended.
