This highly flavorful steak is versatile enough to work for family-style dining, as well as a party-worthy appetizer. It all comes down to the polenta. The dish starts by marinating thinly sliced sirloin in a potent blend of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic. Because the steak is so thinly sliced, it thoroughly absorbs the marinade and cooks almost instantly on the grill. The steak then gets served over polenta. This recipe calls for slicing a tube of prepared polenta into rounds, then brushing them with oil and briefly grilling them.

I am third-generation Serbian, and I was born into the Orthodox faith. This traditional Serbian recipe, cicvara (pronounced "SEETS-vuh-ruh," rolling the R), can be found as a side dish at any special meal to celebrate a festive day at church or at home. This recipe was given to me by a Serbian family at our original home parish of St. Luke Serbian Orthodox Church in McLean, Va. Every year I would delight to see my favorite dish on the buffet line at church. I finally remembered to get the recipe.

andrear@herald-mail.com The low-carb diets so in vogue these days portray spuds as duds, but the United States Potato Board argues for the healthfulness of potatoes. One medium potato is an excellent source of potassium, rich in vitamin C and a good source of fiber for only 100 calories, with no fat and cholesterol, according to information from the Potato Board. And the body needs carbohydrates such as those found in potatoes for energy, said Lynn F. Little, family and consumer sciences educator for the Maryland Cooperative Extension in Washington County.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of Girl Scouts by Juliette Low in Savannah, Ga. In honor of the centennial, The Herald-Mail asked several local restaurants to develop recipes for adults using Girl Scout cookies, one of the most visible aspects of Girl Scouts. One of these recipes uses alcohol, which we recommend should not be shared with a Girl Scout. Here we present four recipes from four chefs in the Hagerstown area. We asked for creativity, and these recipes explore unusual uses of cookies.

What do 10 pounds of fat look like? For a rough estimate, imagine 40 sticks of butter or margarine or 10 1-pound cans of vegetable shortening. How many of us add this much weight in a year without realizing it, until our pants fit a little tighter or our belt runs out of notches? It takes an excess of about 3,500 calories to gain a pound. Break that into smaller bites and consuming 100 extra calories a day can put on about 10 pounds a year. The good news is losing 10 pounds can be as easy as eating 100 calories less each day for a year.

Tammie Nestor entered her lemon cupcake recipe in The Herald-Mail's inaugural cupcake contest. What really made it stand out was the crystallized pansy on each cupcake. Nestor said crystallized flowers can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in keep them in a cool place — not a refrigerator — for as long as a month. Making crystallized flowers is simple. Brush egg white over the petals, then sprinkle granulated sugar over the wet egg. Let dry. Don't use flowers from the flower shop, Nestor emphasized, because you don't know if pesticides or other poisons have been used.
