Now leading the Republican presidential contenders in at least one national poll, Herman Cain said his strategy in the coming weeks is to raise his name identification and position himself as an alternative to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. In a speech to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, part of a daylong trip to the state, the former chief executive of Godfather's Pizza urged lawmakers who were not supporting Romney to choose him (and asked those who were supporting Romney "to reconsider")

The interior of 12th century Sanjusangendo Temple in Kyoto, Japan, captivates many tourists with its 1,001 gilded statues of the Kannon Buddha. But it was the simple contrast of its austere exterior that moved Katherine L. Waitman of Los Angeles when she visited Kyoto last spring. "We stepped outside, and the monk just happened to be passing by," she said. She caught the scene with an Olympus Stylus 740 digital.

Lemon curd is a paradox in a saucepan: It's rich and creamy. It's tart and fresh. Those are the characteristics that make it delicious; they're also what make it seem impossible to make. Think about it: What happens when you pour lemon juice into milk? How would you make that taste good? The answer lies in a particularly basic and very useful bit of food chemistry. Fruit curds are creamy despite having little or no cream in them. Instead, the luscious texture is supplied by cooked beaten eggs.

QUESTION: I like the efficiency and comfort (for my allergies) of radiant heat, but I do not want to tear up the floors to add it. Are there any simple-to-install "non-floor" electric radiant heating methods available? ANSWER: There are many simple-to-install radiant heating methods other than warm floor systems. These, often sold as kits, are ideal for heating just one chilly room in an existing home or for an entire new home.

Innocence is in short supply on the pop scene, and that may partly explain the popularity of the Bulgarian State Radio and Television Female Vocal Choir. Making its local debut Saturday at the Wiltern Theatre, the 24-voice choir drew a star-studded audience that seemed seduced as much by the unpretentious simplicity of these women as by the heavenly beauty of their music. Dressed in traditional costume, the singers performed with a disarming guilelessness.

RE Amy Scattergood's "Simplicity: Let it Rule" [March 15]: Back in the day, say the 14th through 19th centuries, written recipes generally were "one-liners." It was assumed anyone reading a cookbook knew how to cook and could flesh out the few broad brushstrokes of a recipe. If one cook's version varied from another's, that was the culinary equivalent of a personal thumbprint. As with today's cookbooks, that the recipe was written in the first place implied its author's thumbprint was better than yours or mine.

Theresa Rebeck's "Loose Knit" tells the tangled story of five New York women who form an empowerment knitting circle. Like a novice knitter's first scarf project, the play is unevenly wrought and simplistic. Yet the production at the Jewel Box Theatre Center features some convincing performances. Rebeck takes on sibling resentment and rivalry, the woes of single women, female romantic competitiveness and the perils of a workplace dominated by men.

This much can be said for the rematch. These teams don't play the same old conservative NFL game that most other teams play. Their offensive schemes are two of the most unusual in football, and that largely explains why they are in Sunday's Super Bowl. The Buffalo Bills' no-huddle, fast-break approach with Jim Kelly is the more distinctive, but the Dallas Cowboys might have the league's most imaginative offense. Most imaginative--and simplest.

Despite his reputation as one of the jazz world's most determined improvisers, saxophonist Steve Lacy is a simple man at heart. The opening set of his trio's two-night run at the Jazz Bakery on Monday included nothing so complex or detailed that it couldn't be followed. In fact, Lacy's approach was so accessible and inviting that it was impossible not to fall under his spell.
