It was love at first bite for Hagerstown resident John Cangemi. The scene was Italy, where Cangemi and his wife, Joan, were visiting family years ago. The thief of 54-year-old John Cangemi's heart was the oven-baked Neapolitan pizza he tasted there. No American version could compare, he said. Cangemi was so obsessed with the pizza that he built his own wood-fired pizza oven in his backyard, off Howell Road. The oven was completed about three and a half years ago and took him around four months to build.

Do you really have to preheat the oven? How do you know if it's at the right temperature if your oven doesn't have any kind of indicator? Julie Wood, a spokeswoman for General Electric in Louisville, Ky., says whether an oven has to be preheated depends on the item being cooked or baked. cont. from lifestyle Cakes, cookies and pastries are more sensitive to temperature and come out better if the oven is preheated to the correct temperature, Wood says. With meats and casseroles, preheating is not as necessary, she says, but time will have to be added to the cooking time suggested in the recipe if you don't place the food in a preheated oven.

Betsy Payette of Mont Alto, Pa., is a member of the Waynesboro (Pa.) Historical Society. She contributed this recipe for Finnish pancake to the society's 2001 cookbook, “Culinary Traditions: A Taste of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.” Payette said her family ate this pancake every Christmas morning with sliced peaches and honey drizzled over the top. “It was the three of us - my husband, my daughter and myself,” Payette said. “My husband, George, made it. We lived in Europe, and probably it was served to us.” Betsy and George lived in Germany when he worked with the U.S. military newspaper, Stars and Stripes.

This isn't lowly camp grub. Sure, the cooking vessel is a covered cast iron kettle and it's buried in coals. It might even resemble something that swung off the back of a pioneer wagon. But the food being prepared in today's Dutch oven has come a long way from salty stews and baked beans. Now, there are recipes that feature olive oil and herbs, fruits and vegetables, breads and cakes. And, in Mike Carroll's case, it's pizza. A member of Sharpsburg Boy Scout Troop 51, cooking in a Dutch oven is nothing new to the 15-year-old.

Twenty years ago, determining whether a firefighter might need food and drink while battling a blaze generating temperatures up to 1,000 degrees was usually an afterthought, fire officials said. Firefighters would sometimes get relief in the form of a coffee or food wagon, but the care for fire crews was not close to what it is today, fire officials said. When a so-called "working structure fire" is dispatched these days, so is Rehab 255, a unit that fills a variety of needs for firefighters, from periodic medical checkups at a fire scene to providing cooling chairs in stifling heat.

Braising and Dutch ovens go hand in hand. A Dutch oven, said by some researchers to have been named for the Dutch settlers in Pennsylvania who used similar pots, is a large kettle-type vessel that has a tight-fitting lid. The heavy lid prevents steam from escaping, keeping the moisture in. It's used for slow, moist cooking methods - such as braising - so the end result is a super-tender piece of meat. To braise means to brown on all sides in a small amount of fat. The meat is then cooked, tightly covered, in a small amount of liquid for up to several hours.
