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.

Hot is the answer, according to Carma Atwood, customer service specialist with National Pork Producers Council in Des Moines, Iowa. "Pan-broiling" is the proper term for cooking bacon in a skillet on the stove top, and here's how to do it: Place slices in hot pan and turn them often for uniform crispness.

CHAMBERSBURG, PA. -- A day after Pennsylvania Nonbelievers Inc. (PAN) of Harrisburg, Pa., announced a complaint against the Borough of Chambersburg, borough officials said they have no knowledge of the challenge. "I can't react to anything I have not received," Borough Council President Bill McLaughlin said. The dispute revolves around PAN's request to honor athiest soldiers with a display in Memorial Square. The council decided to ban all displays there, and a nativity scene was removed.

Chicken Scaloppine is one of those wonderful Old World-style dishes that when made right is light and tender, loaded with bright flavors. On the other hand, if it's made without the slightest of care - and the chicken is not treated properly - then you have a tough, rubbery dish that's either spiked with too much seasoning or as bland as eating sliced white sandwich bread. As for the lemon, I prefer fresh lemon juice to the bottled variety. If you wish to change up the recipe, substitute Marsala wine for the lemon juice and sauté 1/2 pound of button or cremini mushrooms in the pan before deglazing with the Marsala wine.

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.

Melissa Moreland's father died not knowing what happened to his 21-year-old daughter who left his home Oct. 23, 1987, and disappeared. Moreland, who today would be 46 years old, was last seen late that night at the former High's gas station in Paw Paw. Her parents believed she would be spending the night with a friend. Over the years, several law enforcement agencies working on the case have investigated a variety of tips. Some of those tips claimed the woman is alive, while others pointed to possible places her remains could be found.

In the continuation of our breakfast quest using a 12-inch, cast-iron skillet, I combined a recipe I found online with a few ingredients from our well-stocked frugal pantry and fridge.  I've incorporated some red skin potatoes and some chopped scallions with some rainbow Swiss chard for a beautiful color and brightness of flavor. If you want to add in some meat, please feel free to experiment. As I see it, the dish is complete and looks great as is, but, again, I too love to change recipes and this one is ripe for the picking.  As is, it's a great lacto-ovo vegetarian dish but with a few diced and sliced ham or spicy pepperoni you have a meat lovers' paradise.

This is a whole breakfast served up in one pan. I'm using scrapple, or as some say pon haus.   Scrapple, or what is known by the Pennsylvania Dutch name pon haus, is traditionally a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and flour, often buckwheat flour and spices. The mush is formed into a semi-solid congealed loaf, and slices of the scrapple are then pan-fried before serving. Scraps of meat left over from butchering, not used or sold elsewhere, were made into scrapple to avoid waste.

A new policy regarding in-classroom movies in the Waynesboro Area School District passed a school board vote this week, but not without debate. "Have we really gotten to the point where we're telling our AP (Advanced Placement) students they can't watch a movie like 'Schindler's List?'" asked Tyler Bowders, student representative for the board. Bowders, a senior, was referring to a section of the policy that states "no films or parts of films with the rating of 'R,' 'NC-17' or 'X' are to be shown.
