National publications have taken note of Bentonville's growing dining scene. And so too has Faith in Action, a local charity that supports itself via an annual food fundraiser called Savor the Flavor. Bill Bradley, Washington Regional Health System chief executive officer, suggested the group explore taking the concept created more than a decade ago in Fayetteville and expanding it to include Bentonville.

A few weeks ago I wrote about my strategy for continuing to enjoy beefy tacos while eating less meat. If you missed it, I replaced half a pound of ground beef with 1 cup of cooked quinoa in my favorite taco recipe, with delicious results.

Cooking for two: Honey glaze spices up Cornish game hens

posted: 09/02/2015 2:12 a.m. Discuss

The glaze for this entree is little bit sweet, a little bit tart and a little bit smoky. The recipe calls for Cornish game hens, but you could easily substitute a small chicken.

Corn, polenta, tomato salad a bit of the Mediterranean

posted: 09/02/2015 2:06 a.m. Discuss

Corn often is served one of four ways -- hot on or off the cob, stirred into chowder or folded in seasonal casseroles. In this easy recipe adapted from Sameh Wadi's The New Mediterranean Table, its sweet kernels are paired with more corn in the form of creamy, cheesy polenta and a tomato salad. (The original recipe called for using farina.)

Tips from the pros

Skip the knife: You can use a mandoline or plastic V slicer or a food processor (shredding blade for solid vegetables; slicer for irregular vegetables like cabbage) instead, said Rick Rodgers. But stay away from graters: “The typical box grater will make the shreds too fine, and you end up with vegetable puree.”

DEAR HELOISE: Years ago, I recall a column you had about microwaving. The reader was drying herbs, I think. If I recall correctly, you stated that you should not use any paper towels with designs when microwaving, just plain white ones. Am I remembering correctly, and why only white paper towels?

November brings romance and excitement. March will be the beginning of an improvement process that will take all spring.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I was hoping that if I got pregnant my boyfriend would decide to marry me, but instead, he moved out last week and I don't even know where he is. What should I do now? Please help me, because I'm so confused. Should I get an abortion?
