"If any of your readers have it, I'd be so happy to receive it." Ann Mattoon of Baltimore responded. "I believe this is the recipe Lela Klingler is looking for.

From many little yellow peeps, one artistic family saw a giant yellow bird. At the sixth annual "Peep Show" in downtown Westminster, the massive 3,810-marshmallow-strong Big Bird drew the biggest oohs and ahhs among the young kids and older fans who filled the Carroll County Arts Council building on Main Street Saturday, all there to take in a host of candy-inspired creations. The "Long Live Sesame Peep" display, complete with a trash-canned Oscar the Grouch, was created by Robert Mondor and his family - wife Ann, son Sean, 10, and daughter Lauren, 8, all of Westminster - and was just one of many pop-culture-inspired displays at the Easter event, which has become a major fundraiser for the council each year.

Now that your taxes are done, it's time to hook up those cheese-flavored marshmallows and head for the water.Since 1980, the state Department of Natural Resources has stocked trout in Columbia's Wilde Lake and Lake Elkhorn, making them easy prey for anyone with some line, a hook and bait that smells like state-procured fish chow.This year, however, the state stocked Centennial Lake instead of Wilde Lake because of residents' complaints that crowds of fisher-folk were not respecting private property, were hogging parking and littering up a storm, says Chick Rhodehamel, the Columbia Association's ecologist.

This week the Carroll Arts Center in Westminster is pretty in pink … and yellow ... and green ... for the fifth annual Peep Show, a combination of candy and art taking over the Main Street gallery through next Sunday, April 15. The show, which opened April 5, challenges local residents to create original works of art made with Peeps, the marshmallow confection created by the Just Born company of Bethlehem, Pa. This year's show includes 196...

Kim McDaniel of Winchester, Va., was looking for a brownie recipe that her mother used to make on special occasions. Unfortunately, her mother did not pass on the recipe, but she remembers that the brownies had a graham-cracker crust, then a layer of brownie, she thinks, and then a layer of marshmallow and probably chocolate chips. June Palmer of Santa Rosa, Calif., sent in a recipe for what she calls S'More Squares. If they're not exactly what McDaniel was looking for, they have to be very close.

Whipped into existence from air and sugar, the marshmallow is a fairy-tale food that home cooks rarely attempt. And yet, Rachel Rappaport says, the confection "is the most magical thing you can make in the kitchen. From molten sugar to suddenly, it's just marshmallow!" As the Lauraville resident with a widely read cooking blog called Coconut & Lime has discovered, marshmallows are also much simpler to make than their playfully spongy texture and commercially extruded pellet shape suggest.

In geometry class last week, freshmen at the Key School in Annapolis learned about surface area and volume by using oranges and mini-marshmallows. And then they ate them. They ate chocolate bars, too, but they weren't part of the lesson. As teacher Gail Kaplan explained, "I tell them they can bring in any candy they want. Otherwise, we won't have enough marshmallows." The students used toothpicks to connect the marshmallows and form complex geometric shapes with up to 10 sides. Then they peeled the oranges to measure the fruit's surface to independently figure out the relationship between surface area and radius.

As you know, Sweet-Potato-Casserole-With-Marshmallows Day will be here tomorrow. It's also known as Thanksgiving. Many holiday tables - OK, most holiday tables - across the nation will be resplendent with a juicy turkey, cranberry relish, mashed potatoes and the side dish that could double as dessert any of the other 364 days of the year. To which many of you respond: So what's your point? The point is, there is a case to be made for sweet potatoes without marshmallows. Some of us think they're already sweet enough.

Jim Arnett typically spends his days working on designs for military radar systems, aircraft navigation equipment, precision weapons and other Defense Department electronics. But the electrical engineer with Northrop Grumman came to Friendship Valley Elementary School on a far different mission: Helping fourth-graders design and build towers from marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti. In 50-minute intervals, children at the Westminster-area elementary school were transformed Friday from quiet pupils, sitting attentively at their desks, into a giggling mass of sticky-fingered inventors running around the classroom with fists full of pasta.

Armed with spaghetti, marshmallows and their imaginations, the fifth-graders of Friendship Valley Elementary School turned their attention to bridging a 12-inch gap between two desks. They puzzled over pieces of pasta, trying to figure out the right balance to ensure stability. They created triangles of noodles held together by large marshmallow cornerstones. And, time and again, they fretted over the sections that sagged when they removed their supporting - and increasingly sticky - hands.

A new dessert cafe named the Mallow Bar is now open in Rosedale. The specialty of the house is the Mallow Crunchie. Billed as the "country's first crispy treat cafe," the Mallow Bar is from Nikki Lewis, a familiar face at Baltimore-area farmers markets, who makes her version of the nostalgic Rice Krispies Treat, the Mallow Crunchie, from scratch and tops them with things like dark Belgian chocolate and her own homemade caramel. Flavors include Original Crunch, Dipped Crunch, Caramallow Crunch, Toffee Nut Crunch and Trail Crunch.

Dee Krasnansky guided a hot glue gun around the base of a miniature pine tree, then applied a piece of fluffy white material. On a papier-mache hill behind the tree, a purple marshmallow Peep on Popsicle-stick skis stood poised to coast down the incline. Below, another purple chick on wire skates glided across an aluminum-foil pond, while a yellow sibling carrying a red bag of tiny gifts prepared to march through snow. Krasnansky and Barbara Becker paused to examine their work. Titled Lit Chicks, the scene depicted the four seasons and featured chicks toting small cardboard books throughout the year.

THEIR MISSION was to build the tallest structure possible without toppling it. But it turned out to be a sticky proposition because the fourth-graders at Friendship Valley Elementary in Westminster were working with uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows. Working in teams of four or five, the pupils carefully plotted their strategies. Twisting their bodies to get just the right angle, they gingerly connected strands of pasta with gooey white marshmallows. Amid an increasing buzz of excitement, their towers grew taller and more wobbly.
