Rose Dodds from Bel Air was searching for a recipe for a cake similar to one that she enjoyed at a party. She said the texture was similar to poundcake and the almond flavor reminded her of Italian amaretti cookies. Patricia Waxman from Chapel Hill, N.C., sent in a recipe she had seen in Southern Living magazine for an amaretto-almond poundcake that she thought might be similar to the one Dodds was looking for. She thinks it is the best poundcake she has ever made: "It's moist and delicious, and it's almost impossible to stop at just one slice.

What do you need to make your life look better? Will a dime do? Psychologist Norbert Schwarz, at the University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research, says mere moods often determine our overall satisfaction with our lives. And, he says, "Very minimal things can temporarily put you in a good mood," and thus brighten everything else.In a classic study at a German university, Schwarz in the course of a day occasionally placed a coin equivalent to a dime on a copy machine for the next user to find.

Pound cake is the white sofa of the dessert world: sophisticated, classic and easy to accessorize. And this may be the year for pound cake, just as it is for understated white and neutral home furnishings. If you've avoided pound cakes, preferring a "knock-'em-dead'" chocolate dessert, you've been missing out on the luscious flavor and texture that an excessive and essential amount of butter, sugar and eggs can produce. Well-made pound cake has a texture as fine as $200 bed sheets and a delicate and rich flavor.

It makes no difference whether the bride's father is paying for a country club dinner or a fire hall pit-beef feed -- a deceptively simple pound cake, festooned with sugar swags and roses coaxed from a pastry bag, has become as much a part of local weddings as overdressed cousins and under-rehearsed musicians.It's been said that some Baltimore brides would skip the tossed rice and rented limos rather than omit the concentric circles baked and iced in Graul's Market's busy Bellona Avenue store in the commercial heart of Ruxton.

Walter E. Uebersax, a retired Parkville baker renowned for his peach and pound cakes produced in a rowhouse oven, died of Parkinson's disease complications Saturday at the Maryland Masonic Home in Cockeysville. The Sparks resident was 89. Mr. Uebersax was a Baltimore native, born at home and delivered by his father, a Swiss-immigrant baker. The elder Uebersaxes - Ernest and Alvena - established the Fenwick Bakery in 1926, naming it for an avenue off Harford Road near Clifton Park, a location they selected so that their children would be close to the city's best schools.

When I was asked to write a food story for this new edition I was thrilled, because I am all about food. I traded the TV news anchor desk for a fantastic food journey as host of Food Network's Food Finds. What a dream job ... to travel all over the country and discover the most delectable treats imaginable. Believe me, I've tried them all. I have the five extra pounds to prove it. Wherever I go, I am asked what are my favorite food finds. There are too many to mention. And that's saying a lot because, when it comes to food, I am very picky.

WASHINGTON -- We usually think of Bill Cosby as the jolly, Jell-O-pitching, Cliff Huxtable father figure who never gets agitated about much. But even the jolly Jell-O man feels the need sometimes to liberate his inner grouch. One such moment occurred as he was being honored at a black-tie bash in Washington commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision. According to witnesses, he astonished many at the posh affair by launching into a sermon that mocked the talk, fashion and spending habits of poor black people.

NOW THAT WE are officially off and running in the 2003 holiday season, I'd like to inject a note of caution. As we all gather, I'd think about not overdoing it, going crazy, getting tied up in emotional knots while trying to create an ideal celebration. I'll never forget how blue my grandmother Lily Rose grew one Thanksgiving morning. An early riser, she had made her boiled cranberry sauce and poured it into a cut-glass bowl her mother received as a wedding gift in 1880. As the heated berries touched the cold, untempered glass, the whole thing shattered.

Since my childhood I have been an unabashed fan of all things chocolate. For the past few weeks, I have been working on a recipe for a rich, dark chocolate pound cake. It has taken more than a few testings to produce a cake that is moist, tender and balanced strongly but not overwhelmingly with the taste of chocolate. After myriad tries, I am pleased with the final results. To the usual quartet of pound-cake ingredients of flour, butter, sugar and eggs, I added two types of chocolate -- unsweetened cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
