The navel orange is one step from the tangerine -- in the peel department, anyway.What other type of orange can be accessed so easily? And seedless to boot! And though its taste isn't as intense as the fragile tangerine, it's a worthy splash of flavor that carries us through these lingering days of the cold and flu season.The vitamin-packed orange also offers some protection for those prone to cataracts, according to one U.S. Department of Agriculture study. Researcher Paul Jacques found that people with little vitamin C in their blood were 11 times more likely to have a certain type of cataract, writes Jean Carper in "Food -- Your Miracle Medicine" (HarperCollins, $25)

Although they're meant to evoke the glories of the past, reunion tours more often end up reminding us of just how much time has passed since the breakup, and how much further popular music has moved along. At best, they offer a certain nostalgic kick, but has any reunion ever rekindled the original flame?Sure. In fact, that's precisely what Jimmy Page and Robert Plant did during the two-night stand at the USAir Arena that ended last night.Even though the tour isn't billed as the re-launch of Led Zeppelin -- and, in fact, does not include original Zep bassist John Paul Jones -- that's what most fans came expecting.

Despite our down-to-earth appearance, gardeners are as keen on the latest styles as fashion-crazed socialites are. But we don't wear them. We plant them. And this year, fellow garden fashionistas, the word is color. Come spring our garden centers will be filled with high-wattage offerings like 'Fruit Punch' oriental poppy (Papaver orientale), 'Zowie!' Zinnia (Zinnia elegans), Mango Tango Impatiens, and 'Pin Up Flame' Begonia. "This year's trend is bright, tropical color that stands out when you're driving by," says Tracy Lee, seed purchasing manager at W. Atlee Burpee in Warminster, Pa. The reason is impact.

Sugar and spice may or may not be what little girls are made of, but they definitely take center stage when it comes to holiday cookies. More than 100 bakers answered our call to send their best sweet or spicy recipes for our annual holiday cookie exchange. We floured, buttered, sliced and tasted our way to nine favorites -- four sugar, four spice and one "everything nice" that had the best of both. The winning sugar entries were rolled in sparkling, coarse sugar; flavored with subtle citrus or a surprising herb; studded with colorful fruit; or topped with a light coating of superfine sugar.

As summer goes by there's a pageant of plums in the markets. Green plums, black ones, red ones - sweet, succulent fruit giving forth nectar for warm-weather refreshment. Bringing up the rear are Italian prune plums, the last of the lot, a harbinger of autumn. They're peewees compared to crimson-colored Rosas or dark-skinned Friars. And with their soft, matte finish, these small bluish-purplish types are a bit dull. Prune plums are only so-so for eating out of hand, too, not quite sweet and no gush of juice.

Whatever you think when you think pink, you'll find it on the clothing racks this spring.Ranging from whispery pastels at one end to screaming hot fuchsias at the other -- not to mention innumerable shades in between -- this band of color is among the season's favorites. It's as if a pink paintbrush has left its mark on everything from Bill Blass dresses to Chanel suits, from sportswear to evening wear.Pink appears to be riding the same fashion wave that is bringing the 1960s back for another go-round.
