You could, in a pinch, pick up a tub of generic onion dip from the refrigerated section at your local store before your next football gathering. Or, terrifyingly enough, even off the shelf in the chip aisle. But then you'd be missing out on this melty, rich, carmelized onion wonderfulness. Plus: bacon. Yes, this takes more time - especially carmelizing those onions, which always seems to take way longer than even the most truthful-sounding recipes claim. Wait it out until you get that telltale golden brown.

Nell Evans of Aberdeen was looking for the recipe for the onion soup served at Outback Steakhouse. He said the last time he ate there he was told the restaurant was not going to have the soup anymore. He was hoping someone would have the recipe so that he could make it for himself at home. Susan Fees of Port Carbon, Pa., sent in a recipe for Outback Steakhouse walkabout soup that she thinks may be the one Evans is looking for. She said it comes from a book she has that features popular copycat recipes from many chain restaurants.

" The Onion " took a jab at Baltimore's long struggle with drugs in a story this week. The satiric site reported that Oriole Park at Camden Yards would no longer sell crack after the seventh inning. “From now on, fans who have been hitting the pipe all afternoon can take a bit of a breather to come down and stop tweaking out long enough to stagger home safely," the site quotes a stadium official as saying. "That's what Orioles baseball is all about.” The story concludes by saying that stadium workers "would continue to check IDs for everyone seeking to purchase crack, noting that - per Baltimore city regulations - sales of the drug are prohibited to anyone 14 years of age or younger.

Betty Mathias of New Windsor was looking for a recipe for an onion casserole that was originally published in the 2006 Old Farmer's Almanac. She said she discarded the old almanac and "out with the old year went a darn good recipe." Fortunately, Linda Lupro of Baltimore held on to her copy of the 2006 almanac and kindly faxed in a copy of the recipe that Mathias was looking for. This recipe involves a lot of chopping. However, if you are careful and don't over-process, you could do most of the prep in the food processor, which would certainly be less laborious.

It's the Year of the Onion, according to the National Garden Bureau, an organization that honors certain plants. This is good news indeed. Last year was an onion disaster, at least in my garden, where onions had thrived for 20 years.My O's went on strike last summer, refusing to honor their contract to grow big and fat in rich, loose soil. I gave those plants all the riches of the earth, and how did they repay me? With a dismal crop, barely bigger than the small, dormant bulbs (called "sets")

Contrary to published reports, the entire state of Maryland will not be closed on Aug. 31, a spokesman for Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. confirmed yesterday. The governor himself could not be reached for comment. Even as rumors swirled through the capital that every last state employee would be laid off because the budget was just too far in the red - and that even the state flag and motto would be auctioned off - Ehrlich was playing golf and attending a movie premiere, staffers said. The "article" is the lead story in this week's edition of The Onion, a satirical newspaper that does dead-on parodies of the news.

What is the correct size for an onion in recipes? Some recipes call for small, medium and large onions. Compared to what? In general, a large onion is about the size of a 1-cup measuring cup, a medium onion would be about the size of a half-cup measure, and a small onion would be about the size of 1/4 cup. Or a small onion could be a different beast all together, such as a shallot (the small, pointed onions with gold/purple skins) or a spring onion. But notice the important words in that description: "In general" and "about."

Really, I wanted to have scallops for dinner, served outdoors on our back porch. But the Celebrating Heroes triathlon in Columbia was early the next morning and I felt like I should be carbo-loading with a pasta. And then there were all the greens that needed to be eaten in the fridge I decided to try to simplify the last Swiss chard and pasta recipe I made, and this time make the Swiss chard a side dish. That way, if it failed compleletly, I could still have the pasta -- and scallops.

"Liver and onions - the poor man's gourmet delight. " - Stevens Bunker, retired Baltimore sea dog The taste sensation of beef liver is like licking a piece of smooth, shiny metal. To the bite, the texture is akin to corduroy - wide wale and brown - and leaves a subtle film across your tongue and the roof of your mouth. Liver and onions - a staple of working-class communities with strong German heritage, and therefore an old favorite in old Baltimore - endures here as a savory snapshot of the way our grandparents ate. "It reminds me of shopping with my Nonnie, my Italian grandmother," said Kathleen Birrane of Dulaney Valley of adventures some 40 years ago at the Pantry Pride in Mount Washington.

It seems most appropriate that on Valentine's Day 2013, Mango Grove and Mirchi Wok will celebrate a year of peace and love between a pair of culinary “isms” -- vegetarianism and carnivorism. On this date in 2012, chef/owner Rohit Chawla and staff opened their doors to Indian food aficionados who previously had to choose one or the other “ism” if they wanted to dine on Chawla's creative recipes. Although Mango Grove and Mirchi Wok were in the same building, they had separate dining rooms and separate kitchens.

WELFARE IS LIKE an onion. That's not because liberals cry when it gets cut, but because it has many layers. Each layer corresponds to a different function.There's the ameliorative function that most recognize: a safety net for poor children. Then there's the economic-stimulus function: a cash transfer to the poor which is then quickly transferred to landlords and local merchants. Then there's the labor-market function: a means of deliberately keeping the unemployed on the sidelines of the marketplace to limit the oversupply of workers in an economy that cannot guarantee jobs for everyone.

Spring onions rarely get a chance to shine. They are always relegated to playing fourth or fifth fiddle. But the spring onion has much more to offer than being a bit player in a soup. From now until the end of the summer, farmers' markets all over Maryland will offer these pungent alliums in sizes ranging from pencil thin to baseball thick. They're a cheap and easy way to impress your friends and family at a cookout (using our recipe, natch). This recipe brings out our inner terrible cook because it encourages us to burn our food.

Timothy Dean Burger is open. I couldn't find a website for the new burger joint, which is at the Boulevard at the Capital Center in Largo. But the opening is featured on the shopping center's website . There's a link to a menu , too. What's on the menu? Burgers, pizzas, a handful of sandwiches and sides. There's a TD Classic Burger with American cheese, bibb lettuce, tomatoes and red onion; a Timothy Blue Burger with organic blue cheese, maple bacon, lettuce and tomato.
