Q: When my toddler takes a nap, she sleeps on her stomach. When she wakes up, her face and eyes are red and swollen. Why? Is she allergic to something in the bed?A: A "puffy" face on waking is common. Although we've never seen a formal explanation, we think mild swelling of the facial tissues can be explained by what is known about blood circulation.The smallest blood vessels, the capillaries that wind their way through body tissues, are somewhat leaky. A small amount of liquid from the blood seeps out. It tends to collect where tissues are loose.

Deep-frying is the bacon of cooking techniques: It makes everything taste better. Do it with beignets, though, and you get the irresistible results in a more lyrical package. The word is almost as satisfying to say as the real thing is to eat. Beignets sound so much lighter and airier than fritters, but they are no easier to pass up. The most famous beignets in this country are a New Orleans specialty: squares of yeasty dough fried until puffy, then smothered in powdered sugar, to be eaten with the local chicory coffee.

Q. When I lived in Georgia, I used to go to a restaurant that specialized in omelets. What made them so good was that they were very fluffy. I've tried to re-create them at home, but I can never get my omelet as puffy as they were at the "omelet house." What is the secret? A. The secret is a little thing that everybody has at home. Are you ready? It's called an oven. When restaurant chefs want to serve a fluffy omelet, they first whip the eggs to incorporate air bubbles. Then, they heat an ovenproof omelet pan on top of the stove over medium heat until hot. They add 1 tablespoon of butter and then the whipped eggs, and cook until the omelet bottom is light brown.

Howard County police are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who robbed a Chevy Chase Bank on U.S. 40 in Ellicott City -- the county's second bank robbery of the year. Police do not believe he is the same man responsible for six bank robberies and three attempts in the county last year. In the most recent incident, a man entered the bank Monday, placed a book bag on the counter and demanded money. He fled on foot. The man is described as black, in his 20s or 30s, approximately 6 feet tall and weighing between 220 and 300 pounds.

NEW YORK - When is a fashion show not just a fashion show? Apparently, when the owner of the fashion label is a wildly successful, controversial yet charismatic hip-hop impresario on trial for charges in connection with a Manhattan club shooting that left three people wounded. Sean "Puffy" Combs, the hip-hop artist better known as Puff Daddy, unveiled the Fall 2001 collection of his Sean John men's line Saturday night in a flashy show that seemed to be about more than just the clothes he was trying to sell.

The Baltimore County police have nabbed a locksmith for a burglary in Pikesville and consider him a suspect in at least 100 other break-ins in some of our more well-off neighborhoods, from Woodlawn to Cockeysville. The cops say this guy was so good he pulled off the robberies without leaving a trace.Which distinguishes him dramatically from the legendary Puffy Hoffman -- who always insisted on leaving a trace.Puffy liked breaking into houses, taking jewelry and silverware and packing it into suitcases.

You have to wonder just what in heaven's name is wrong with this world when a couple of crazy kids like Sean "Puffy" Combs and Jennifer "J.Lo" Lopez can't make it work. Sure, there were the career demands, the infamous dress, the gunplay, not to mention the looming threat that the Puffster might actually wear some of the clothing from his new fashion line in public. Still, even given these love bumps -- oh, and I guess you do have to figure in the potential for hard time -- happily-ever-after should at least have had a chance.

Which came first: Puffy AmiYumi the J-Pop duo? Or Puffy AmiYumi the manic cartoon characters who quibble and reconcile and surf and rock around the world? It's a super-cute chicken-and-egg question that can be answered differently depending on whether you live in Japan or the United States. With its catchy blend of bubble gum/surfer/punk-lite rock, the singing duo of Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura has held the attention of Japan's trend-driven pop fans from their first recording, True Asia, in 1996.

Japanese pop stars Ami and Yumi seem like the cartoons that depict them - incredibly bubbly, wacky and hyperactive. The two singers from Japan have star power that has amplified beyond the music scene. While they may be known best for performing the energetic theme song for Cartoon Network's Teen Titans, they've also reached into fashion and now have their own cartoon, called Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. Over the phone, they play-fight, finish each other's sentences and create (at least in some)

There's a wonderfully funny and relentlessly cute 45-minute cartoon within The Powerpuff Girls Movie; unfortunately, it's padded out with almost as much filler. It may sound silly to speak of an 87-minute cartoon as tedious, but when even my 11-year-old daughter has trouble keeping her eyes on the screen, something is amiss. The Powerpuff Girls, big-eyed, super-powered bundles of joy that have become a major hit on TV's Cartoon Network, are one of the best things going in animation today.

In tha Beginning ... There Was Rap(Priority 50639)These days, when rappers talk about paying tribute to the old school, what they generally mean is sampling a slice of a rap oldie, the way Puff Daddy's "Ain't Nobody Hold Me Down" uses a loop from "The Message" by Grand Master Flash & the Furious Five for its musical bed. But "In tha Beginning ... There Was Rap" takes a far more literal approach, using an all-star array of contemporary rap stars to remake...

Rap mogul Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs is sitting in an office at WERQ-FM, explaining why he's in the midst of a breakneck 35-city publicity tour."The marketplace is so competitive now," he says, as he slouches wearily behind a desk. "I think it's important to get out into the marketplace and let people touch you. A lot of times, when you have so much success, people feel like you're unapproachable or inaccessible."I never want people to feel like that."If so, then maybe he should have spent a little more time out on downtown's Cathy Hughes Plaza yesterday, where a smattering of fans waited patiently in the drizzle for his arrival yesterday.
