Who says there are no cooking secrets? The following discoveries have saved me time and money--and a lot of frustration. I am constantly reminding myself of the old adage: "The art of cooking is correction, compensation and adjustment." The best method of preparing a baking pan for a cake that is tricky to release (I have a cake roll that sometimes slides out of the sheet pan easily and other times stubbornly sticks) is to line the baking pan with foil, shiny-side up, grease and lightly flour.

Persuading a billion Chinese tea drinkers to set aside the habit of a few millennia in favor of a thick and bitter-tasting foreign brew called coffee was a challenge Stuart Eunson could not let pass. When the inveterate coffee drinker found himself a student in China, Eunson, now 25, saw an immediate market. To exploit it, he and two like-minded friends established their own company, Arabica Roasters.

Coffee prices continue to get easier to swallow. Kraft Foods Inc., which owns the Maxwell House and Yuban brands of packaged coffees, is lowering its wholesale prices roughly 6%. The cut will shave about 20 cents off each pound of the company's roast and ground coffees, while making instant coffee about 2 cents cheaper per ounce. Retailers such as grocery stores will set the final price seen by consumers. Kraft's price cut, announced Tuesday, follows that of competitor J.M. Smucker, which a week ago slashed the cost of its Dunkin' Donuts and Folgers packaged lines 6% because of a drop in coffee bean prices.

Quitting is easy, maintaining is hard. Dignity, as a coffee drinker, that is. All the time you hear it. You're minding your business when some condescending highway patrolman pulls you over and asks you if you know how fast you were going. "I have no idea officer; I am in a hurry. I've got to pick up my triple grande caramel macchiato before heading off to work, and I'm really going to be late now. . . ." Honestly. They've gotta know the feeling.

King Arthur and his knights searched for years for the Holy Grail. And I have searched for a good cup of decaffeinated coffee. My husband, Chuck, says, "How can you decide what's a good cup of coffee? Everyone likes it a different way. You like your coffee twice as strong as the rest of the world." He's probably right. But since "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder," a good cup of coffee for me is determined in my taste buds. It isn't as though I haven't tried.
