Movie review What is ratatouille? It's a dish made by sauting eggplant, zucchini, red peppers, onions and tomatoes. But it's also a movie opening in theaters Friday, June 29. The story line for "Ratatouille" is very unusual in that the creators at Pixar use a rat as the main character. A rat isn't exactly man's best friend. Most people think of rats as dirty, disease-carrying, thieving rodents. Nonetheless, this has a recipe for a hilarious family film: Add Remy the rat, mix in his living in a Parisian bistro and his dream of becoming a gourmet chef, and ta-da.

daniels@herald-mail.com It is either courage or folly to launch a new line of pastries at a time when the Atkins and South Beach diets are sweeping the nation. That's just what Smithsburg-based wholesale bakery Hadley Farms did two years ago when it test-marketed its 7-ounce cinnamon roll at a supermarket chain in Virginia.

Neumann likes to eat, and he likes to cook. He shares a Ringgold farmhouse with his wife of 29 years, Becki, an elementary school teacher who has studied to become an Episcopal priest.
