Dear SOS: Had a lovely lunch last Friday at the Lucca Cafe in Irvine. The meal was wonderful. The payoff was their brownie. It was so good that several of us ordered an extra one to take home. It almost seemed as if the outside were a chocolate meringue and the inside a very moist, soft chocolate. If you could secure the recipe, we would be forever grateful! Thank you, Carole Mayo San Diego Dear Carole: With a delicate, crisp crust enveloping a wonderfully ooey-gooey filling, this amazingly rich brownie takes perfection and coats it in chocolate - and then drizzles over even more chocolate just for good measure.

A 19-year-old Northern California girl who was convicted of selling pot brownies to buy a prom dress now faces deportation. Saira Munoz of Yuba City was an 18-year-old senior at River Valley High School when prosecutors say she hired a friend to sell her marijuana-laced brownies. She was caught after a student got sick off one of the brownies. She was convicted of a felony and sentenced to four years of formal probation and nine days in jail with credit for time served, the Sacramento Bee reported . That felony conviction, in turn, put her residency status in jeopardy after the Sutter County Probation Department informed the federal government about her conviction.

Although it's now legal to smoke weed in Colorado, you still can't secretly feed it to your classmates. Two University of Colorado Boulder students face multiple felony charges after the marijuana-laced brownies they brought to class put their professor in the hospital and sickened seven classmates, campus police said Sunday. November's voter-approved Amendment 64 made Colorado's marijuana laws some of the most relaxed in the nation, but Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19, may not get much help from it. The pair have been arrested on suspicion of planning and intentionally committing second-degree assault and inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means.

As legalized marijuana appears in an increasing number of American homes, so too does evidence of a dark side: accidental ingestion of pot and pot-infused food by young children. The results can be frightening to such children, who often suffer anxiety attacks when they start to feel unexpected symptoms of being high: hallucinations, dizziness, altered perception and impaired thinking. And the trend should prompt equal concern among adult caregivers and public health authorities, since ingestion of highly potent marijuana by young children can suppress respiration and even induce coma, according to a study published online this week in JAMA Pediatrics.

Haroset , a blend of fruit, nuts and wine, is probably the most popular food of the eight-day holiday of Passover, which begins on Monday night. For the Seder, the feast commemorating the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt, haroset is spooned onto the Seder plate alongside other symbolic Passover preparations and is served as part of the ritual. Although haroset's brown color is meant to be a sad reminder of the mortar made by the Hebrew slaves, people's faces light up when it's time to sample it. Some Jews prepare extra haroset to use as a spread throughout Passover.
