Val DeSantis from Utica, N.Y., was looking for a recipe for a Scandinavian-style almond cake like the one she purchased some years ago at a fundraiser. She thought it was made with almond paste as well as almond extract, and she said that it's "an almond lover's dream cake". Rosalinda Fuller from Santa Rosa, Calif., shared a recipe for an delicious almond cake that she hoped DeSantis would enjoy. She said that she found it on food writer David Lebovitz's website, davidlebovitz.com.

Elizabeth Skenderovic from Dundalk was looking for a recipe she misplaced for making an almond cake using almond paste. Kay Berney from Baltimore shared a recipe for what she calls marzipan cake that is made with almond paste. She said she has been making this cake for many years, and it was a favorite of her late husband and her father, who both loved the taste of marzipan. Both marzipan and almond paste are made with ground almonds and sugar, but in different proportions and with different uses.

My dog loves running in the yard, but I worry in the summer. What signs should I look for that he may be getting overheated, and what should I do if he exhibits them? Early signs of heat stroke include panting, bright pink gums, strong pulses, vomiting, diarrhea or depression. Playing outside in the summer, even in the shade and with access to water, puts dogs at risk for developing heat stroke. Owners must regulate their pups' exposure to heat in the spring (before they have acclimated to the higher temperatures)

MINNEAPOLIS -- The winter chill already has arrived in the capitals of baseball's great white north, but the Minnesota Twins and Toronto Blue Jays don't have to come out to play.The weather will be perfect at the Metrodome for Game 1 of the American League Championship Series tonight. Set the thermostat at a comfortable 69 degrees and play ball. Toronto's SkyDome offers the option of retracting the roof if the conditions are satisfactory, but this will be baseball's first completely climate-controlled postseason series.

My husband and I are spending several weeks this summer living and working in Paris once again. A few days ago, we were invited to a small cocktail buffet given by American friends. The morning of the party, I telephoned the hostess, volunteering to bring a dish to her fete. She welcomed my offer to contribute dessert, but when I asked about the night's menu to coordinate my dish with hers, she said she hadn't yet decided what to serve. I marveled at her calm since I would have worried about the foods for such a soiree at least a week in advance, When we arrived at our hosts' apartment, we found them completely relaxed.

Consumers worried about contaminated spinach from California's Salinas Valley may have a threat closer to home: bacteria breeding in their kitchen sink. We live in a germ-filled world. Millions of microbes live in kitchens, setting up house on kitchen counters, cutting boards, stove tops and tabletops. More than 250 different food-borne diseases have been identified, and E. coli, salmonella and campylobacter are only three of the most common bacteria that cause infections. E. coli bacteria have been found in spinach and associated with at least one death (and, in Maryland, another death is suspected to be linked)

Here's the thing about hype: you get in this business, you've heard it all. And you believe about one-eighth of it. Every flack who gets through to you is pushing the greatest product ever made since they floated the ark. So in the healthy spirit of skepticism, The Sun convened a four-member panel for a blind )) taste test of Pepsi One and four other diet colas.Was the taste of new Pepsi One truly fresh and distinctive, as the suits at Pepsi corporate headquarters insist?The results of our test were astonishing.

Q: Jalapeno peppers seem to vary so much in their heat that I never know what result I will get with a recipe. Any suggestions?A: Fresh jalapeno peppers do have different heat levels, so I have come to rely on jarred pickled jalapenos for recipes, for both heat and convenience. No need to don gloves to cut and remove seeds. Just use the amount called for in the recipe (adding a little extra if you want it quite spicy). One medium jalapeno pepper equals one generous tablespoon of pickled, sliced jalapenos.

Why do onions need to be refrigerated after cutting? Wouldn't it be just as well to put the onion in a container or baggy and put it back in the pantry? And does an opened container of ketchup need to be refrigerated? You refrigerate a cut onion for several reasons. One is that cutting into anything introduces bacteria, which will grow more quickly and cause spoilage faster at room temperature. When you cut the onion, you also rupture the cells, which leak moisture and cause spoilage.

Putting warm food in a freezer lowers the freezer's temperature, which can affect the stability of the other frozen foods in the compartment. Always cool food at least to room temperature before freezing. Chilled food freezes faster, and therefore tastes fresher when reheated.-- The Food Lover's Tiptionary
