Justin Warner would like to clear up one thing: He doesn't wear lipstick. For some reason, judges on “The Next Food Network Star” were nearly as obsessed with Warner's red mouth as they were about his food. Lately, the only thing that's been painted on Warner's lips has been a smile. On Sunday night, Warner was named “The Next Food Network Star,” catapulting his career from self-taught chef to standing alongside other “cheflebrities.” Warner, a Hagerstown native, is now based in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he runs his restaurant, Do or Dine.

Dear Lynne: Solve a mystery for me, please. Verjuice -- what is it? I am a pretty sophisticated foodie, but this is a new one. What am I missing and is there a substitute? --Jerry in Lincoln Dear Jerry: Verjuice is the juice of unripe grapes. It can be gently sweet or lean toward tart. Substitute a sweet-tart blend of grape juice and cider vinegar, or fruity white wine with a little vinegar. Use it instead of vinegar in salads (a good way to make salad wine-friendly), use it wherever wine is used for marinades and sauces, and pour it over fruit, or over ice with bubbly water for a summer tonic.

In J.D. Salinger's 1951 novel, "Catcher in the Rye," the main character is Holden Caulfield. He's a confused 16-year-old boy who has been kicked out of several schools over the course of many years, has a lack of respect for people and can't seem to find his calling. Frankly, the only reason I read this book is because it is required reading for school. Holden Caulfield is a pessimistic person who can't seem to grasp life for what it is and doesn't see the value in much of anything except for children.

Poinsettias were introduced into the United States almost 200 years ago by Joel Poinsett, the first U.S. Ambassador to Mexico. They were given the common name poinsettia in his honor.   Over time, poinsettias have become the best-selling flowering potted plants in the U.S.  They are tidy attractive plants with clusters of several colored leaves, or bracts. Bracts are typically red, pink or cream and are often mistaken as part of the flower. However, actual poinsettia flowers are small and yellowish green; they are located within the bract clusters.
