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.

Last year our family shared Thanksgiving with good friends in Rhode Island. Our hosts said they would prepare the bird, stuffing and vegetables, and another couple, also invited to the fete, offered to bring appetizers. I volunteered to make dessert - always my favorite part of a holiday menu.After several days of contemplating sweet finales, I called the hostess to suggest a pumpkin cake. Much to my surprise, my friend told me she was not fond of pumpkin and never included it on the Thanksgiving menu.

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.

Mercedes Shideler from Sebastopol, Calif. shared her recipe for lemon cheesecake that she hopes is the one that Brunner is looking for. This likely is the cheesecake many of us grew up with. Unlike the real deal, even a novice cook can make this and expect good results. With this recipe, you get all the delicious lemon cheesecake flavor without all the extra effort. It's light and tangy — and best of all, it is no-bake.

Bob Turk is a nice guy. A very nice guy. Everybody says so. "I can't even remember what he reports -- he's just part of the fiber of the city," says Maggie Miceli, 30, a native Baltimorean who currently lives in Washington. "He's been on television as long as I've been alive." Chris Godwin, a 23-year-old security guard from Baltimore, describes Turk this way: "He's just a typical person like you or I." You don't have to take their word for it. Executives at several local stations say surveys consistently show the cheerful Turk -- WJZ's weather forecaster for the past 30 years -- among the most popular people on the city's airwaves.

When The Baltimore Sun inaugurated its Peeps Recipe Contest this year, it was a way to acknowledge the unstoppable force that has become the Peep. [See photos of all Peeps recipe contest entries here .] Once, the marshmallow treat was mere Easter candy. Those days are over. Peeps are cultural touchstones with fan clubs, a clothing line and even a store devoted to them at National Harbor. They've inspired people to make sculptures and videos, and even to write books and songs.

Ever even conceive of a 300-pound crab cake? The folks at Handy International did -- breaking their own record for World's Largest Crab Cake and serving it up to attendees of the Maryland State Fair Saturday. What goes into a 300-pound crab cake? 200 pounds of crab meat, as well as eggs, breading and seasoning. Handy Seafood's Jim Cupp designed a rotisserie-style cooker to complete the challenge. It took 8 hours for the massive crab cake to cook, and it was weighed at noon. Sandwiches from the record-setting cake were sold, benefitting the Maryland 4-H Foundation.

An all-dessert buffet menu sends your favorite Valentines a sweet message. Make the setting gracious with fresh flowers, but keep the table decorations minimal; let the desserts be the centerpiece. Three or four selections for six to eight people should provide something delicious for everyone: A cheesecake and a pound cake from the market are quick and easy. You can offer fireworks in the form of flambeed cherries to enjoy over cake or ice cream. While you're at the market, pick up fresh fruit to serve simply, in a bowl.

Sun-dried tomatoes, a darling of trend-crazed foodies in the 1980s, have entered the supermarket in the 1990s.They aren't quite a staple yet, but these days it's becoming easier to find low-fat, sun-dried tomato products that can be reconstituted in only 2 minutes -- a convenience that opens up endless fast-cooking possibilities from omelets to pasta sauces.For this Fastlane Feast, I have used Sonoma Tomatoes -- an organically grown product that typically sells for $1.75 on the West Coast to $2.25 on the East Coast for a 3-ounce package.
