Apple's new iPad has a higher resolution screen, better graphics processor, an iPhone-4-quality rear camera and (in some models) 4G LTE capability. It's also slightly thicker and slightly heavier. But the difference in heft between the iPad 2 and the new iPad (no, it's not called iPad 3 or iPad HD) will likely be negligible to most. The Wi-Fi-only version of the new iPad is 0.37 inches (9.4 millimeters) thick and weighs 1.44 pounds (652 grams). The Wi-Fi-only version of the iPad 2 is 0.34 inches (8.8 millimeters)

Dear SOS: I have been to Lawry's Carvery many times. I wish I knew how to make their baked macaroni and cheese. I hope you can acquire this recipe. They have many of their recipes on the website, but the mac 'n' cheese is not on it. Arlene Rebuyon Rancho Santa Margarita Dear Arlene: Lawry's was happy to share its take on this classic comfort food, which we've adapted below. This makes a lot of mac 'n' cheese, so it's perfect for a summertime get-together.

This week's SOS comes from Wenise Wong in Los Angeles: "Just back from some choice New York City restaurants and hoping to replicate in L.A.: Any chance you could get the recipe for the compost cookie from Momofuku ? Thanks for taking requests!" These cookies are like taking every single one of my favorite snacks and packaging them in a simple, compact, magical treat. Chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coffee, graham cracker crust, pretzels and even potato chips are tossed in with a rich cookie dough to turn out something truly inspired.
