Tips to spice up meals

Lunch a go-go Fit & Fresh's Smart Portion Chill Containers will fit into small lunch bags or purses, and the measures are easy to read.

A set contains four 2-cup containers with multi-colored lids and 2 ice packs, and costs $9-$10 at Target and by mail (fit-fresh.com or 800-421-1223). Frozen finesse Jeni's sweet corn with blackberry ice cream is as odd sounding as it is fabulous, and just one of the flavors in Ohio pastry chef Jeni Britton's arsenal of ice creams and ...

Scare fare

Halloween and candy go hand in hand. But Frank Percival associates a different food with Oct. 31: "Picky nibblies," his term for "anything you can eat while balancing a cocktail in one hand" during one of his and partner Mark Wall's costume parties."We would borrow shamelessly from the Martha Stewart magazine," Percival said. "Deviled egg trays that look like devil eggs. Finger sandwiches that look like fingers. Cakes that were bleeding."Halloween lacks the standard cuisine of the more protein-centric American holidays, like Thanksgiving or Easter. Instead, it's a chance to get creative, to disguise food much ...

Native plants draw interest from gardeners

Bicycle 101: I'm seeing more and more people riding bikes now that the weather is getting cooler, but "ouch," they are killing their knees and thighs. Sitting on your seat, you should barely be able to touch the ground with your tiptoes. When you are riding, your seat should be high enough to allow you to peddle without strain on your knees and thighs. When your foot is on the down peddle, your leg should be almost fully extended. Some of the riders I am seeing are almost hitting their chins with their knees because their seats are too ...
