Two cheeses, actually: a soft brie and a Casu Marzu — also known as Sardinian maggot cheese for the larvae whose nonstop noshing brings this formaggio to an advanced state of fermentation.   A sausage patty tops the notorious Scottish dish haggis, served here with radishes and fried potatoes. Photo by Peggy Peattie.    Lye — yes, the caustic stuff used to make soap - is one of the ingredients necessary to prepare lutefisk. Photo by Eduardo Contreras.  Is ... [full story]

With the possible exception of Pinocchio, Charlie McCarthy was and remains the most famous wooden character in pop culture history. The elegantly attired, top-hatted and tuxedoed, wisecracking ventriloquist's dummy manipulated by Edgar Bergen had a unique career spanning 56 years, moving from vaudeville to radio — where he was one of the biggest stars of all time — to movies to television to night clubs. Interested in magic as a child, Bergen purchased a book ... [full story]

Q: I have enclosed a photo of an old phonograph that my mother gave me several years ago. This is a view of the cabinet's exterior with the lid open. I'm glad my mother rescued the phonograph from a woman who was going to throw it away.   A "Diamond Disc" phonograph, made from around 1912 to 1927, would probably be worth $200 to $500.  The wood is oak and in perfect condition. The original red felt ... [full story]

Q: We moved into this home a couple of years ago and it had several flowering vines growing on a variety of trellises. Some are falling apart and need to be replaced. I would like to cut some of the vines down, rebuild the trellises and let them grow back. I am afraid the vines will die or, if they survive, will not climb up the trellis. Is it OK to do this now, while ... [full story]

Q: We are buying a foreclosed home that was built in the 1970s — the bargain price leaves us enough to afford a modern makeover of the really blah, old-fashioned kitchen. Both my husband and I love to cook, mostly together. Eventually, we hope to modernize the entire house, but meanwhile, do you have any suggestions?   A professional chef spices up his own kitchen with a bold blend of color, steel and extroverted zebra-wood flooring. ...

If you're aiming to win over a confirmed vegetable hater, here's a sure-fire strategy: Roast those veggies.   Roasted Baby Spring Vegetables features fingerling potatoes, baby carrots, radishes and asparagus. Photo by Anita L. Arambula.  When vegetables are roasted — cooked in a hot oven with little or no liquid — their exteriors become crisp and caramelized and their sweetness concentrated, giving them a comfort-food appeal that you just don't get from a raw carrot stick or ...

Has any food product in history ever been as maligned, mocked and slandered as the humble can of SPAM, to the point where its name was chosen to be used for the most lethal enemy of every e-mail subscriber? And yet it has survived for over seven decades, even accruing its own cadre of collectors. The product was introduced in 1937 by the Hormel Company of Austin, Minn. —founded in the late 1890s as a ... [full story]

Q: My uncle found this covered green vase in a local thrift shop. It is 9 inches tall, glazed on the inside and in excellent condition. Marked on the bottom in a circle are the words: "Cornel & Son Pottery — Hand Made — Byde — Ky." It is difficult to read, but that is what it looks like.   A green pitcher, made by Cornelison Pottery, would probably be worth $125 to $150.  It would be fun ... [full story]

Q: A local store is selling strawberry pots already filled with strawberry plants and I was wondering how to take care of them and if this is a good way to grow plants. How long will I get strawberries?   A: Strawberry pots can be a great way to grow strawberries, herbs and small annual flowering plants. A strawberry pot is a flower pot usually less than two feet tall that has a series of holes ... [full story]

Q: I am considering competing lawn care programs. My lawn looks OK, but I don't know if I have enough topsoil. One program seems to be more interested in the soil, and the other one has a series of products to buy. What advice do you have?   A: There are several ways a healthy plant can be grown. They can be grown in good soil without much effort; they can be grown in bad soil ... [full story]

Q: What happens if I put a darkish plaid wallpaper on the ceiling of my husband's study? It's his idea — he says he wants a "cozy" environment — but I've always heard that ceilings should only be white, unless you live in the Sistine Chapel. What do you advise?   Down with convention, and up with a dark, reflective ceiling that makes the room feel cozy but not claustrophobic. Photo courtesy of Malke Naz Freidouni.  A: ... [full story]
