Commentator Peter Morici thinks Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is out of touch with inflation and what ought to be done about it (" Yellen: It's later than you think May 27). He himself, however, seems a bit out of touch with reality when he tosses off a comment like "milk [is] expensive and steak [is] a special occasion luxury rather than a weekly staple on the family menu. " I don't know about his weekly staples, but I indulge in steak only about twice a year. Maybe Mr. Morici should investigate what families - middle-class or otherwise - actually do call "staples" before he makes such sweeping statements.

There's little that's more romantic than a wonderful dinner enjoyed a deux in a cozy setting. With Valentine's Day in the offing, restaurant phones (and websites) are undoubtedly busy taking reservations for just such tete-a-tetes . If you're into the "cooking is showing love" lifestyle, however, an even more romantic way to spend an evening with your honey is to fix a lovely meal you don't have to go out for. Dinner, and even a movie, seems just the thing for telling someone you have feelings for him (or her)

Across America this spring and summer, millions of steaks will hiss and sizzle over the glowing coals of outdoor grills. Some will become memorable entrees. Others will meet unfortunate ends.Nearly all of us think we can cook a steak, no matter how limited our other culinary skills. But the steak requires finesse.It's a matter of perfect timing -- the real key to success. It's matching the cut to the right cooking technique. It's mastering the broiler and the braising pan and the heavy-duty ridged skillet.

Teriyaki, a sweet sauce, glazes a juicy steak for this quick meal. Frozen diced onion, minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, all ready-prepared in the supermarket, are added to bottled teriyaki sauce to give it a homemade touch. Toasted sesame oil lends a nutty flavor to the side dish of Chinese noodles. It can be found in the oil section of most supermarkets. Steamed or fresh Chinese noodles can be found in the produce section of the market. They do not keep well. Use them within a day or use dried Chinese noodles.

The Capital Grille has come to feel like a hometown restaurant. Of course, it's not. When the Capital Grille opened on Pratt Street in 2005, is was part of a moderate-size regional chain. But since 2010, the steakhouse been wholly owned by the gigantic Orlando, Fla.-based Darden Restaurants, which also owns Red Lobster and Olive Garden. Still, Baltimore's business community has made the Capital Grille into its executive dining room. And on a Saturday night, you'll see a few tourists scattered about the handsome dining rooms, but mostly you'll see your friends and neighbors.

Q. How does a chef know when a piece of meat is properly "Pittsburgh"? Can I do this at home? A. You do not have to be a chef to burn a piece of meat and set off the smoke alarm, which is what you will be doing if you are "Pittsburghing" a steak. It's interesting how terms for the same type of food are different in various parts of the country. If you were to travel down South, say to New Orleans, you would see "blackened steak" on the menu. On your return trip, you'd be offered "Pittsburgh" steak.

The Oregon Grille, after 16 years, has achieved institutional status. For residents of northern Baltimore County, especially those reluctant to drive into the city, the Oregon Grille is a retreat from the crowds and their flashy manners. Gentlemen are still asked to wear jackets in the dining room — not just on weekends, but weeknights, too. We had a pleasantly paced and relaxing dinner in the main dining room, which is decorated extensively with equestrian kitsch and framed scenes of the hunt.

"Downtown restaurant" and "kid-friendly" are not two concepts that naturally go together. In most cases, they shouldn't go together. But at Sweet Caroline's, they do. The Locust Point restaurant, which opened in August in the former home of Pazza Luna, caters to both families and kid-free adults looking for a good place for dinner and drinks by keeping the menu and decor simple and the service friendly. For the most part, that approach works. Occasionally, though, Sweet Caroline's food seems a little too basic for its downtown location.

We've found local chefs who are preparing these classics with authenticity - and willing to share their recipes, so you can have what makes you happy on your Baltimore food staycation.

You don't need to be a scratch golfer to enjoy Mountain Branch Grille & Pub. Though the restaurant is located on the grounds of Mountain Branch Golf Club in Joppa, it is open to golfers and non-golfers alike (the course is open to the public, too, and golf memberships are also available). It's no surprise that Mountain Branch is a popular spot for weddings: The space - with exposed rafters, stone accents and enormous windows overlooking the course - is jaw-dropping. Fortunately, the food and service are just as impressive.

President Barack Obama had a dinner date last week with a dozen of his worst enemies, thus proving that the governmental stalemate in Washington, D.C., is driving him to unusual acts of political creativity -- or desperation. The president personally picked up the tab for the private dinner at the Jefferson Hotel, and the guests were all Republican senators, including John McCain (Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Bob Corker (Tenn.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Dan Coats (Ind.)

* Item: Reduced Fat Steak-umm* What you get: 11 servings* Cost: About $6* Preparation time: About 3 minutes in microwave or 2 minutes on stove top* Review: A Philly cheese steak sandwich without the fat? Not quite, but this frozen, thinly sliced steak shaves a third of the fat from the original Steak-umm, and it's done without sacrificing taste. My resident cholesterol counter ate his on a hoagie roll without adding cheese and found the flavor satisfying. Overcook this thin steak, though, and you'll think you're eating leather.

They're like eating a hunkful of steak and melted cheese, without any annoying bread. Personally, I missed the onions, peppers and roll that make up a true Philly cheese steak.

With country music blaring, honky-tonk decor, and a menu stacked with smokehouse favorites, Cowboys & Rednecks (also known as CNR) is hardly shy about its theme. We half expected the hostess to greet us with a "Yeehaw!" CNR's owner, Federal Hill resident and big-time country music fan Guy Naylor, opened the bar in late 2011, imagining that it would be a fun addition to his neighborhood. Local bar-hoppers agreed; CNR is often packed to overflowing on weekend nights. CNR's success as a bar is uncontested, but its status as a go-to restaurant is less confirmed.

Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver still hasn't performed his version of Ray Lewis' signature dance but he did make good on the other part of his losing bet with Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake . By the Thursday following Baltimore's dramatic victory over Denver in a divisional playoff game, a box of dry aged rib-eye from Denver's Lombardi Brothers Meats arrived at the Baltimore mayor's office. What, people wondered, does a mayor do with a box of rib-eye steaks? On Saturday afternoon, Rawlings-Blake stopped by the Engine Company 52 fire station on Woodbrook Avenue.
