Tucked away on a side street in Fells Point is one of the area's sometimes unnoticed but well appointed establishments, Red Star Bar and Grill, a spacious eatery with walls that could tell a million stories if given voice. Manager Matt Straub gives a bit of a history lesson on the spot: Red Star was once a brothel in the early days of Baltimore. "Sailors used to dock at Fells Point and follow the red stars painted on the sidewalks to Red Star for food, ale ... and a little more," he says.

Rosie Ahern of Willits, Calif., was looking for a recipe for pineapple squares that she remembers from her childhood. Her mother, who baked bread on a weekly basis, came across the recipe on a package of Fleischmann's yeast. Barbara Davis of Salisbury sent in the recipe she believes is likely the one Ahern was searching for. The photocopy she sent in appears to be from a magazine advertisement for Fleischmann's yeast. She says she has had it since it was published back in the 1950s and it is still a favorite with her family today.

Q: I made a gelatin salad using fresh pineapple and it didn't set. What happened?A: Pineapple contains an enzyme that prevents gelatin from setting. It can also turn many proteins mushy, such as chicken that's mixed in a salad with fresh pineapple. Canned pineapple is a good substitute because the enzyme is destroyed in the canning process.Q: What is a pot-au-feu?A: This is a French term for a dish which usually consists of a beef broth, boiled meat (typically beef) and vegetables, almost a meal in itself.

I would be most thankful if you would locate it for me." Glenna Clinger of McHenry, Ill., responded. "I read your column every week. I think I may have the recipe that Donna Getty is looking for except that my family calls it Graham Cracker Cake."

Q. My neighbor has a large pineapple sage plant. It is a marvelous plant with brilliant red flowers and leaves that really smell like pineapple. She's willing to share it with me. How should I propagate it? A. You could take stem cuttings and root them inside your home in a lightweight media. But you would need to grow them in a sunny window or provide artificial light to keep them going through the winter. You would probably be better off simply taking an outside division of the plant crown early next spring before new growth begins.

Power Plant Live newcomer Kettle Hill, a "Theodore Roosevelt-themed" establishment replete with lively, wood-and-iron-and-brass layouts, is a solid rustic-yet-fun place to hang out after work. It's a spot for working professionals with a bit of grown-up taste. Like the atmosphere, the cocktail menu, as bartender Daniel Clemmer puts it aptly, "is sophisticated, but approachable without being pretentious. " One of the freshest examples is the Church and State, a Herradura Tequila-based cocktail with fresh-squeezed lemon juice, fresh pineapple juice, cinnamon simple syrup and honkin' 2-by-2 inch ice cubes.

Mary W. Klauck of Rapid City, S.D., writes that she lost her recipe for Pineapple Upside-Down Cake that was made with a cake mix and was so easy and delicious. "I would appreciate help in finding one." Faith Debes of Fallston responded with tester Laura Reiley's choice. Debes wrote, "I have made this delicious and easy cake on many occasions and almost always have been asked for the recipe. It is a family favorite. "The 20-ounce can of pineapple contains 10 slices. It works out well to use four slices of pineapple lengthwise down the middle of the pan, leaving an equal amount of space between each ring, and then three slices above and three slices below, placing each of these slices so that they are between the spaces in the row of four slices.

Pat Colandro from Dundalk was looking for a recipe for a chicken dish with sweet potatoes and pineapple that she said was published some years ago in The Baltimore Sun. She said couldn't remember the exact ingredients, but the dish was a great way to get more fruits and vegetables into her family's diet. Maria Murphy from Santa Rosa, Calif., sent in a recipe from a cookbook called "Slow Cooker and More" that she thought sounded similar to what Colandro was looking for. What's particularly nice about this recipe is that the whole dish can be assembled in 15 minutes or less, and then the slow cooker does the rest of the work.
