Paula Pumphrey from Glen Burnie was hoping someone would have the recipe for the fudge that was made and sold for a fundraiser for Public School 84 and the Salem Lutheran Church around the corner when she was growing up in South Baltimore. She said her mother, who is 90, also attended P.S. 84 and remembers the fudge fondly. She said the fudge was about a half-inch thick and snapped when you bit into it. It immediately melted in your mouth. Marilyn Vogel from Baltimore had the recipe Pumphrey was searching for. She said she was the secretary at P.S. 84, also known as the Thomas Johnson School, for 30 years and was a member of the school's "Mother's Club," which made the fudge.

Saundra Byrd from Brooklyn, Md., was looking for a recipe for peanut-butter fudge. She said the fudge was served in Baltimore County school cafeterias in the 1960s and '70s. Barbara Whitman of Glyndon sent in a recipe for peanut-butter fudge that she obtained when she was a teacher at Franklin Junior High School in the early 1970s. I'm fairly confident that fudge as luscious and rich as this, even with peanut butter as a main ingredient, would not be found in a school cafeteria these days.

Whoa! There is a ton of heavy stuff to discuss from Sunday night's midseason finale of "The Walking Dead" on AMC, but first, a serious question: Is the Governor really dead? I know that we saw him get stabbed through the center of the back and chest with Michonne's Shinobi sword, and then we saw Lilly stand over him and fire her gun in the direction of his head. But we never actually saw him die. I've learned that in shows like these - "The Walking Dead", " Magnum, P.I. ", " Legends of the Hidden Temple " - that a character isn't actually dead and gone until we see their rotten, decomposing carcass.

Van Gogh Vodka is introducing what it's calling one of their most innovative and unexpected flavors to date: PB&J. The press release from Van Gogh was spread thick with all kinds of tasty trivia about the beloved sandwich. It says that peanut butter was invented by a doctor in St. Louis for his toothless patients. Van Gogh's PB&J has a primarily peanut fragrance complemented by the aroma of fresh raspberries. But, the profiles reverse on the tongue. Raspberry dominates the flavor, not peanut butter.

Ice cream and granola bars are the latest products to be linked to widespread manufacturer recalls of some peanut butters and other nut products that started last month. In the past week, at least five manufacturers have recalled peanut butter flavored ice cream products. In each case, the peanut butter used in the product was supplied either directly or indirectly by Sunland Inc., which has issued a national recall of some of its products because of possible Salmonella contamination.

Two additional nut butter products have been added to a list of Trader Joe's products consumers should not eat because they have been linked to a Salmonella outbreak.

Monday Sunland also  voluntarily recalled Trader Joe's Valencia Peanut Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds, Crunchy and Salted and Trader Joe's Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds, Crunchy & Salted.  The outbreak has sickened 29 people in 18 states, including a child in Maryland who was not hospitalized and has recovered.

A foreign student I knew in college said he loved America for three reasons: our freedoms, the quality of our peanut butter and the excellence of our postal service. He thought it was cool that we could gather and protest anything we wanted to, whenever we wanted to. He thought the famous brands of peanut butter on the supermarket shelves were all good. And he was absolutely amazed that he could mail a letter from Connecticut on a Monday and have it reach almost anywhere in the country by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

Excerpt of a Saturday New York Times editorialREPORTS of some schools adopting peanut-free zones in lunchrooms and even total peanut butter bans may sound like a freakish health fad, but there have been rare cases where children who were severely allergic to peanuts have died after coming into contact with peanuts in school. With increased reports of food allergies among children, the impetus to protect the susceptible is understandable.About 7 percent of children have some kind of food allergy, with effects that can range from mild itching to traumatic shock or the closing of breathing passages.

Jean Reed from Santa Rosa, Calif., was looking for a recipe for peanut-butter cookies that included orange juice in the ingredients. Norma Purlington of Rapid City, S.D., sent in a recipe for peanut-butter cookies that she has been making for many years that uses orange juice. She says it is one of her family's favorite cookies. These cookies look and taste much like a traditional peanut-butter cookie, but they do have just a hint of orange that makes them extra-special. Recipe requests Gail Rosenthal from Absecon, N.J., is looking for a recipe for German streusel cake.

The new school year is underway, and many parents know what's ahead: the lunchbox grind. Peanut butter and jelly again? Yawn. "It seems like you either get stuck in a rut, or your kids get bored," says Paula LacKamp of Towson. "Then they don't eat their lunch, and they come home starving. " But with a little planning and some inspiration, creating healthy and fun lunches for kids doesn't have to be a major chore. LacKamp tries to make lunchtime more interesting for her daughter Hannah, 11, and son Nathaniel, 8, by doing things like switching out sandwich bread for alternatives such as tortillas, pita or crackers.

The 1700 block of North Charles Street, home to such institutions as the Club Charles and Charles Theater, is a logical home for a place like Lost City Diner. Its quirky atmosphere, friendly service and likable (if sometimes average) food are likely to make it a hit. The restaurant opened in August 2011 but closed only a few months later, in January 2012, for "kitchen renovations. " It finally reopened, with a new owner, on April first of this year. On a recent Wednesday evening, the diner was nearly empty at 6:30, but packed by 7:30.

To start out, we get a very long recap of last week's freakin' awesome Tribal Council where Malcolm turned the whole game on its head, and Phillip went home. It was so awesome, in fact, that no one can even be mad at them when they get back to camp, congratulating the guys on their bold move. Plus I think they're all relieved that Phillip went home, and they don't have to listen to him and all of his annoying 'Stealth 'R Us' talk. They're at Day 29, and everybody is starting to get a little weary, and everybody is hungry.

Nutritionists from the University of Maryland Medical Center regularly contribute a guest post. The latest post from Sierra George, dietetic intern, is printed here. Despite its name, the coconut is a fruit from the coconut palm. Tropical cultures have been using this delicious fruit for everything from food to body lotion and even currency. Until recently, Americans have seen coconut mostly as the dried, shredded ingredient of cookies, candies and cakes. Now, as more products derived from the coconut hit grocery store shelves, we are given the delicious opportunity to get creative with the coconut.

  Giving my cat a pill is a difficult, sometimes bloody, endeavor. How do I make this easier on both of us? Giving cats pills is not an easy task, especially if you need to do it on a daily, long-term basis. Here are some of the techniques that can be useful: Use a pill gun or an applicator to drop the pill in the back of the throat, then gently rub on the throat. And you can follow with some water to help in moving the pill along by using a teaspoon or a syringe.
