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.

Bob Mayes was gardening in his Northeast Baltimore front yard this week when Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler launched himself down Berkshire Road, crisscrossing the block at a full-out run.

  Video of a disagreement between the owner of a shopping mall party space and a Brooklyn Park woman -- who claims that her daughter's sixth birthday was ruined when the young guests were booted out without receiving pizza, cupcakes and goody bags -- has gone viral. Mother Jaime Norfolk is suing store owner Nsenga Rivens in Anne Arundel County District Court. But Rivens claims that she is the victim.  The owner of the party space, Shugaland, said that she asked the group to leave her business Sunday after they were rude and profane to her. Rivens says she has agreed to relocate her business from Marley Station Mall after mall officials were bombarded by calls from Norfolk supporters.

Mary Kilby from Timonium was in search of the recipe for the delicious banana cream pie that used to be served at Toddle House restaurants in the 1950s. Toddle House was a national quick-service restaurant chain with locations throughout the United States. It specialized in breakfast but was open 24/7. Even though the chain has been closed for years it still has quite a devoted fan base, including its own Facebook page. While there are copycat recipes for some of the chain's other famous dishes, unfortunately, I had no luck finding any recipes for their banana cream pie. However, Patsy Schlemmer from Bremen, Ind., saw Kilby's request and shared a recipe for a banana cream pie that she said came from one of her mother's cookbooks from the 1950s.

I have glaucoma, diagnosed about 35 years ago. I loved black licorice, but it raised my eye pressure nearly off the charts. A pharmacist friend was curious to see what caused it to rise so rapidly when it had been under control. He discovered that it was due to the licorice. All people with glaucoma should be warned. Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) has been used medicinally for coughs, digestive problems and inflammation. It is also used to flavor candy and chewing tobacco. But licorice has some potentially serious side effects, including fluid retention, potassium depletion and high blood pressure.

Mary Geis from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for a dessert that her mother made many years ago that was a kind of buttery shortcake topped with plum halves. She said it was not too sweet and instead was rather tart. Patricia Battaglia from Kalama, Wash., saw the request and was reminded of a recipe for Pflaumenkuchen that her neighbor, Eva Estermann , made some years ago from the plums harvested from a huge Italian plum tree that was in Battaglia's back yard when she lived in Novato, Calif.
