Q. I've heard that taking enteric-coated peppermint oil can help irritable bowel syndrome. My worst symptoms are stomach cramps and flatulence, but I'm reluctant to eat out or travel. Some of my friendships have suffered. What does "enteric" mean, and why would peppermint oil help? A. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can produce symptoms such as abdominal pain, gas, cycles of constipation and diarrhea, urgency of stools and bloating. The only drug approved for this condition, Lotronex, was recently withdrawn from the market because of serious adverse effects.

There's something welcoming about Joey B's, the new Federal Hill restaurant and bar from Joseph Bivona, who also owns The Grille at Peerce's in Phoenix. At this low-key new city outpost, Bivona has put his management skills to good use. Joey B's is casual and fun with a menu that has a few misses, but adds some new twists to typical Federal Hill bar cuisine. Scene & Decor Maybe it's the fresh red and black paint job, or it's the cute sports art on the walls, or maybe it's just because we visited Joey B's during a downpour: Whatever the reason, we found the place inviting, cozy and warm.

It is from a cookbook entitled Our Favorite Desserts: Favorites From Home Economics Teachers, published 1967. I grew up in North Dakota where graham-cracker refrigerator desserts are very common.

For some species the nose is the critical sensory organ. We can watch a bloodhound sniff the wind, but a mere human can't begin to imagine the amount of information the animal gleans from it. Because we humans see and hear so much, it's understandable that we sometimes forget the ways that other senses influence us.In a presentation at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, fragrance scientists offered evidence that periodic whiffs of...

While the weather forecast for Saturdays' Ravens game is in the high 40s - not exactly Green Bay territory - it can get chilly after being outside for a while. One of the best ways to keep the cold at bay is with a cup of spicy hot chocolate. Traditionally, hot chocolate is just a thicker version of chocolate milk. This version is rich and full of character, thanks to cinnamon, orange peel and chiles. Don't be afraid - it's not as spicy as you might think. There is a little bite at the end, but nothing that will make you breathe fire.

I never thought it would be me. Or, more to the point, I never thought it would be my dog. But it is. Teddy Bean has fleas. Fleas!!! My little pup! Why does it seem so embarrassing? So shameful? No one feels like they have to leave the groomer with a bag over their head if their dog is stinky, or muddy, or has a few mats. But fleas? I'm taking it personally. So here's what happened. I had been wondering for a couple weeks now about these little poppy seed thingies I'd been finding in Bean's fur. I had even mentioned it to a few people.

Question: : I have been washing my hands so many times a day to avoid colds and flu that they are incredibly red and rough. My fingertips are cracked and split, and it hurts to type on the computer. Normal moisturizers aren't cutting it. Answer: : Many readers sing the praises of instant glue to seal cracked or split fingers. If you prefer pharmacy-grade glue, try Band-Aid Liquid Bandage or New-Skin Liquid Bandage. It sounds as if you need an industrial-strength moisturizer. Dermatologists often recommend Lac-Hydrin 12 percent, which is effective but pricey.

Ask any gardener: Mint wants to take over the world. It grows profusely, pushing aside its neighbors. Sadly, all that enthusiasm gets ignored in the kitchen. Basil and oregano are the herbs of choice for so many Italian dishes, but mint is a worthy ingredient, with just as much right to reign in a tomato sauce. So here we give it its due. Tip The fresh mint sold in supermarket produce sections is usually spearmint; any mint - peppermint or, for that matter, basil - will work just as well.
