To remove the skins from peaches easily, pour boiling water over them, then quickly dip fruit into ice water. Use your fingers or a small knife to slip off the skins. To minimize cleanup when baking fruit pies, set pie plate on a baking sheet to catch liquid overflows. -- Cole's Cooking A to Z

BY NOW, TURKEY across the county has been served in every leftover style possible,and most folks are bustling back to work not only with hopes for the holiday season, but also shopping lists and scheduling needs.Though thoughts of snow, Christmas carols, Christmas trees and giving are enticing, I always hesitate to let go of the holiday that celebrates one of the best feelings around -- gratitude.Even if for a brief moment, the most private person experiences the pleasure of someone else's help or love.

"World of Pies," by Karen Stolz. Hyperion. 160 pages. $18.95.

'Pie-ing the principal' teaches wrong lesson What am I missing here? I refer to the June 21 article in the Howard section of The Baltimore Sun titled "Pie-ing the principal a reward for behavior." I fail to understand how throwing pies in the faces of the principal and other school administrators is "an opportunity." Food throwing has always baffled me as a very messy way to waste food.
