Dear Lynne: What is a flat-iron steak? Ads talk about it being cheaper than rib eye or the loin steaks. But how do I find it, and what is it exactly? -- Ben in Minneapolis Dear Ben: Flat-iron steak's flavor can trump much more expensive steaks'. This comes from the shoulder of the steer (also known as the chuck). In contrast, the most tender and expensive steaks come from the upper back of the animal (where there is the least movement, hence more tender meat) and have names like rib eye, top lion, sirloin and tenderloin.

Vickie Nichols of Largo, Fla., was seeking a restaurant's recipe for Texas Tornado Cake, noting that the dessert had crushed pineapple in it and a coconut topping. Anne Bryant of Sun City Center, Fla., sent a recipe -- but not the restaurant recipe. This is a very easy recipe to make, suited to any skill level. When I first read this recipe, I realized there's no fat in it, meaning no butter or oil, and there's no vanilla. Well, the lack of butter or oil didn't affect the taste, but I did miss the vanilla.

4 shots Irish whiskey 4 teaspoons Splenda or Sucanat (see Cook's note) 24 ounces brewed coffee (decaf if you're worried about sleeping!) 1/2 cup heavy cream Cook's note: Sucanat is unrefined sugar cane juice, dried and powdered. It tastes much like brown sugar but has the vitamins and minerals that brown sugar lacks. It's still a refined carb, so I'm wary of it, but if carbs aren't your problem, it's more nutritious than sugar. If you have nice stemmed Irish-coffee mugs, use them.

Kim West of Hagerstown entered the Herald-Mail's 2012 Cookie Exchange Contest. Her entry, Mom's Cracker Jack Cookies, was not selected as a winner, but the concept was distinctive. "This is my mom's recipe," she said. "She's just one of those older women who takes things and throws them together. My nephews love this one, so I thought I would enter it. " Cooking is something of a family tradition for West. She and her sisters all cook, and West has cooked for 40 years, since she was an adolescent.

I started this recipe with a bunch of peanut butter cups and a cup of espresso in my hand. I reworked two older recipes I've used to build this new recipe, featuring Nespresso espresso coffee. I love the added kick in flavor you get when you add excellent coffee to chocolate, cookies, creams, and rubs, so I thought why not try to add coffee to peanut butter cup cookies. What you see before you is the final product, tested and approved by my family and my two sous chefs during the experiment, Jenna Rose and Jaelyn Grace.

This recipe is the most often requested and sought after family favorite and a standard at all family holiday gatherings either at home or with the in-laws.  It's delightfully easy to prepare and can be calorie adjusted by replacing sugar with Truvia, as desired. My immediate family prefers the recipe without the nuts in the topping, while my mother incorporates nuts in hers. As for my sister, Katie, who is terrific in the kitchen, she always says that you need to double the topping recipe for every batch of the filling made.  To this day, I follow that advice and thus the phrase, "Candy Bar in Bowl" was created.

My latest creation came about when playing with some espresso-ground pumpkin spice coffee.  I love the flavor and was interested in trying to coax out more flavors at breakfast, hence the Pumpkin Coffee Cake. I also wanted it to have a bite to it so that it can perk up anyone sampling the moist coffee cake.  If you desire you can easily leave out the cayenne, and add in another teaspoon of cinnamon, or nutmeg. However, be careful, nutmeg can overpower the batter if used liberally.

This is a wonderfully easy coffee cake recipe with actual coffee in the recipe.  The beauty of adding coffee into the recipe is the richness and depth of flavor it imparts to the batter. I will be trying this recipe again with a pumpkin-pie flavored coffee, but for this version I used chilled dark roasted coffee (8 ounces). In essence of time to help the breakfast cook of the house, I used packaged ingredients to help offset the time and cost needed to gather flour, baking soda, baking powder and so forth.  I also like to add applesauce to help with the moisture in the cake as well as eliminating the need for oil.

Bev Coyle is a member of the board for One Mountain Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to improve the community surrounding Fort Ritchie in Cascade. Coyle submitted several recipes for inclusion in “Mountain Heritage Cooking Collection,” a fundraising cookbook to benefit One Mountain Foundation. Several of the recipes Coyle submitted are from her mother, Miriam Poole. “My mother was always the best cook ever,” Coyle said. “She has Alzheimer's disease now. I thought it would be a nice to have some of her recipes in 'Mountain Heritage Cooking Collection'.” Coyle said Poole was improvisational - she could put things together without a recipe.

I know this is deviating from the salads and cast iron cooking I've been writing about, but I wanted to make some cookies with my son. We went to work creating these wonderful, morsels of goodness.  Make sure you have fresh peanut butter and that you completely blend ingredients together before moving onto the next step. Also be sure to get the best chocolate chips possible, or incorporate chocolate chunks.  Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services.
