Emily Senatore from Kodak, Tenn., was looking for a recipe for making a cheesecake similar to the one made by Sara Lee and sold in supermarkets. She says that the light and creamy dessert is no longer to be found in the freezer section of her market and she would like to be able to make it at home. Darla Cole from Brooklyn, in South Baltimore, sent in a recipe for cheesecake that she calls a Sara Lee clone. I remember fondly the cheesecake made by Sara Lee, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that Cole's simple and quick recipe produced something very close in taste and appearance to the original.

Can I expect my shares of Sara Lee Corp. to show improvement in the near future? - R.F., via the Internet The global food, beverage and household products company, which spun off its Hanesbrands division to shareholders nearly a year ago, is still adapting to its makeover. Because it also shed a number of businesses in its international apparel, snack brands, domestic coffee and meat snack operations, it must convince investors that this smaller, more-centralized look suits it. At issue is whether everything is coming together quickly and effectively enough to merit the current stock price.

When I visited the Chicago Board of Trade with my high school economics class, my fellow students and I giggled about serious adults trading in something called pork bellies. Today, we might giggle about Wall Street analysts making intense predictions about prospects for something equally silly-sounding called iPods. The mad dash to this colorful and tiny digital music player sent Apple Computer Inc. stock soaring, and the energized company now sells more of them than it does computers.

Sara Lee, widely known for its baked goods, said yesterday that the employees are cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which is investigating whether U.S. Foodservice executives improperly accounted for rebates it received from food manufacturers.

JP Foodservice Inc. of Columbia said yesterday that it has cut off talks with Sara Lee Corp. about taking control of Sara Lee's restaurant supply business in a dispute over the financial terms of the deal, walking away from a chance to become a Fortune 500 company.Three months of talks ended abruptly Monday night when JP Foodservice's board voted at a meeting near the Chicago headquarters of Sara Lee to reject the proposal. Three independent directors and two JP Foodservice executives who sit on the board vetoed the plan, over the objections of three JP Foodservice directors appointed by Sara Lee.The board decided the deal would cut the earnings per share of existing JP Foodservice stock and effectively give control of the company to Sara Lee without making it pay any bonus above JP Foodservice stock's everyday trading value.

Investors unloaded shares of Sara Lee Corp. and ConAgra Foods Inc. yesterday after a news report suggested the two food manufacturers may get caught up in a federal probe of Columbia-based U.S. Foodservice's accounting practices. The Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source close to the investigation, said representatives of the two giant food manufacturers may have colluded with U.S. Foodservice executives to inflate the size of rebates vendors pay in exchange for meeting certain sales goals.
