Wayne Simmons and Rob Woods have the kind of life styles you would expect from guys who run a mattress company--fairly laid-back. Simmons, 48, and Woods, 38, golf, fish, travel and cook together when they're not running W. Simmons Mattress, the Cerritos-based company Simmons and his father founded more than 30 years ago. Business takes the partners to some far-flung places, and they take advantage of their travels to indulge their pleasures....

Whenever possible, I try to avoid making hors d'oeuvres. Perhaps my impatience gets the best of me and although I enjoy spending time on a complicated terrine or pastry, hors d'oeuvres never quite seem worth the work. These miniature frittatas are an exception. The creation of Nancy Harris, a friend who makes her living as a caterer, this recipe yields about three dozen delicious little cocktail snacks in record time.

Here's a joke they tell in Poland: What are the three biggest Polish cities? Warsaw, Krakow and Chicago. There certainly are a lot of Polish-Americans in Chicago, so everybody there knows what Polish food is. Many Angelenos, though, don't know Polish food--or rather, they know it as Jewish food: borscht, roast brisket, meat-filled dumplings (pierogi, much the same as kreplach) and many of the other comfort foods my grandmother made. Polish and Jewish food differ primarily because of Jewish dietary laws.

Prosecutors questioned first baseman Randall Simon of the Pittsburgh Pirates before letting him off the hook for hitting one of the Milwaukee Brewers' sausage mascots with his bat during Wednesday night's game. The sheriff's department cited Simon for disorderly conduct and fined him $432. Simon said he didn't mean to knock down the woman, who tumbled to the ground and got a few scrapes but wasn't seriously hurt during the popular costume race at Brewer home games.

Who's ready for a steaming-hot bowl of meat, eggs and cheese from Burger King for breakfast? Or a pizza with not just bacon but "double bacon" and six types of cheese? Rolling into 2011, fast-food joints across the country are set to deploy a potent new arsenal of greasy goodness for Americans who have grown numb to mere burgers. Think spicier, cheesier, gooier. The new items flout principles of healthful eating and instead celebrate a spirit of wanton gluttony. "There's been quite a bit of what we call carnival revival," said Darren Tristano, a restaurant expert at market researcher Technomic.

Feasting on sausage, sauerkraut and ale, revelers celebrated medieval cuisine--and some modern themes too--at the Ventura County Oktoberfest on Sunday. While a brass band in lederhosen played oom-pah-pah music, representatives from GTE pitched the telecommunications giant's online Yellow Pages service in a van filled with computers. And along with an assortment of dark and light ales, thirsty revelers could opt for a cup of mocha latte or bottled mineral water.

Texas A&M shotputter Randy Barnes, in town to help promote the Pepsi Invitational at UCLA, went to the coffee shop at the Sheraton Plaza La Reina and asked, "What's for breakfast?" "Well," said the waitress, "you can have eggs with bacon or sausage and toast, or sausage with pancake sandwiches, or steak and eggs . . . " "I'll have one of each," Barnes said. "And three milks." An hour later, at Julie's, he was breaking bread with the media at the Southland track writers luncheon.

Not long into "Because I Said So," which stars Diane Keaton and Mandy Moore as a mother and daughter bound by a mutual dependence so neurotically obsessive it makes the affair in "Last Tango in Paris" look breezy and wholesome, I was reminded of the pancake-wrapped sausage that Jon Stewart has been waving around lately on "The Daily Show."

It was just another tragedy in family court. A young crack mother, desperate to conceal her pregnancy, had locked herself in a tenement bathroom and given birth to a three-pound boy. As she pushed, he fell to the floor and broke his skull. The mother abandoned him, like she had two previous babies. All were born addicted to crack. "Can we do anything about this woman?" asks Judge Judith Sheindlin, her voice taut with anger.
