If your power is still out you'll need to take care with the food in your refrigerator. Here are some tips from the U.S. Department of Agriculture on how to prevent foodborne illnesses. If the Power Goes Out: Keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible. A refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if you keep the door closed. A full freezer will keep its temperature for about 48 hours (24 hours if half-full) If the power is out for an extended period of time, buy dry or block ice to keep the refrigerator as cold as possible.

Innocently opening my icebox to get a glass of juice one day, I started to analyze the contents of my refrigerator. I decided that if a complete stranger looked in there, he would be able to tell a lot about me.He would know, for instance, that I liked hot food (seven bottles of Matouk's Hot Pepper Sauce from Trinidad). He would know that I'm somewhat of a pack rat (a dozen tiny containers filled with leftovers). He would surely know I had children (an empty milk carton, an ice cube tray with one cube in it)

COLLEGE PARK -- In addition to the refrigerator in Gloria Friedgen's homey kitchen, there are also two in the adjacent garage. With more than 20 people expected for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow - including about a dozen hungry Maryland football players - there has to be a little extra storage room at the modest Friedgen home in Silver Spring. The dining room opens into the living room, where there will be enough seating to accommodate 25 to 30 people.

How to tell the difference between Penn and Teller: Penn is taller and Teller is paler. In public, Penn is talky and Teller is . . ."Excuse me, Teller is very pale, he is a bit paler than I. Neither one of us has ever been in the sun. Right now we are in a room with no windows, rehearsing the 'Penn & Teller Refrigerator Tour.' It is a schoolroom, like Michigan architects design to drive little children crazy . . .

Q: I have a problem with bread going stale. I live alone and am rarely able to use an entire loaf of bread before it turns stale. I have tried storing bread in the refrigerator but find that once I do that it never tastes the same. What is it about refrigeration that ruins bread?A: Bread turns stale as its starch undergoes a change in structure. Although stale bread has a dried-out appearance, a loss of moisture is not the complete explanation -- a loaf will even turn stale in a well-sealed, never-opened package.

If you lost power after recent storms, you may have been debating what to do about the food in your refrigerator and freezer.It's a question of assessing the damage using standard food safety guidelines and common sense.Food starts to spoil when the temperature rises above 40 degrees. After food warms to that temperature, you have just two hours in which you can either return it to cold conditions or cook it.In the fridge, produce will survive most power failures, but dairy products should be discarded if they smell or taste sour.

A malfunctioning refrigerator has caused the loss of about $25,000 in vaccines for the Carroll County Health Department, officials said yesterday. Because the vaccines had to be destroyed, officials cannot schedule any more flu clinics this season and have postponed other inoculation clinics until supplies are replenished. The nursing staff, who check the refrigerator's recorded temperature and corresponding time twice daily, discovered the thermometer had dropped to extremely low temperatures Monday.

My laptop was my most devoted companion during two months in a wheelchair with a broken ankle, so of course I took the opportunity to buy a new refrigerator. Online. It was actually easier than buying a bathing suit online. I know, because I did that, too. Anyway, I researched the most popular refrigerator styles, the best manufacturers and the best prices. I clicked on all the pictures and all the consumer reviews. I watched for the February appliance sales, and I read about the Presidents' Weekend tax holiday, and I printed out the form for the energy-efficiency rebate.

Many Americans make meals out of leftovers from their meals. And while everyone knows to refrigerate perishables, not everyone is taking all the proper steps to ensure the next-day food is safe, according to the Institute of Food Technologists , a nonprofit society of food science professionals from academia, government and industry. The group definitely supports leftovers, and even says some foods actually taste better the next day, such as those with spices, because the flavors have time to meld.

It is rare that one can find a truly heartwarming story about icemakers. When we were first married, my husband and I lived in a renovated old high-rise in Virginia. All of the new appliances were specified as "builder-grade," which indicates that builders on the whole must be extremely content with minimal features in their home appliances. The dishwasher had two cycles: on and off. The refrigerator had only two or three gradations on its dials, and the freezer had no icemaker.

The woman sounded panicky and apologetic. "I forgot!" she hollered from the second floor of her North Baltimore rowhouse. What she forgot was to lug her ancient console television out the front door so it could be hauled away by the city's bulk trash pickup service. And now here was the big green city truck, idling outside on Oakland Avenue. Larry Eley, the easygoing 38-year-old crew chief, gazed up at her from the walkway. He wanted her to know there probably wouldn't be a next time.

Q. I enjoy eating pepper shooters, and I buy them by the pound at my local grocery store. This year, I am growing cherry peppers so I tried to make my own pepper shooters. I filled the peppers with provolone cheese and prosciutto, put them in a quart jar, and covered them with olive oil. After storing them in the refrigerator for a couple of days, the oil became thick and looked like cheese. When I left them at room temperature for a while, the oil went back to its original state. The grocery store shooters are in the refrigerated section, but the oil doesn't appear thick.

Marylanders who wait until March to switch to certain energy-efficient electric water heaters, refrigerators and clothes washers will be eligible for a federal "cash for appliances" rebate, according to the Maryland Energy Administration. The U.S. Department of Energy approved Maryland's proposal for the energy-efficient appliances rebate program Thursday. The state's share is $5.4 million, paid for by stimulus plan dollars. Under the approved terms, consumers can apply for a $300 rebate after purchasing an electric heat pump water heater, which is more energy-efficient than standard electric water heaters.
