Two 13-year-old boys are facing aggravated-assault charges after slipping a homemade bomb into a postal worker's mail cart Thursday, police said. About 3 p.m. a postal worker was delivering mail on Farson Street near Arch in West Philadelphia, when the teens crept up to her cart and stuffed a bottle bomb inside. When the postal worker began walking back to the cart, police said a witness told her the canvas cart was going to blow. "An explosion occurs, the flap of the mail cart flies open and bits of paper flew around-landing on the sidewalk," said Lt. John Walker, of the Southwest Detective Division said.

LAGOS, NIGERIA - The roasted chickens had an unusual stuffing - $150,000 worth of cocaine, according to Nigerian police. A Nigerian mechanic who struggled in Brazil for more than six years had hoped that the drugs would buy him a life of luxury in his native land, Nigerian authorities said Monday. "This was like a retirement plan for him," said Mitchell Ofoyeju, spokesman for the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency. The accused was arrested over the weekend at the airport in Lagos after he came in from Sao Paulo with 5.7 pounds of cocaine, Ofoyeju said.

IN THE shadows of a Southwest Philadelphia shed, 6-year-old Patricia Holte laid the foundation for a deliciously successful enterprise. Much too shy to interact with the other neighborhood children on 84th Street, the quiet first-grader sought refuge behind her family home with just cats, dogs and butterflies for company. Armed only with ketchup, salt, and a handful of jalapeno peppers, little Patsy would lose herself in those moments, fantasizing that she was cooking for her adoring fans.

Here is an excerpt from the cooking blog "My Daughter's Kitchen. " It is not easy keeping up with fish. Which are overfished? Which are plentiful? Which are full of mercury? Which are line caught? Which are farmed? When I passed along this recipe to my daughter, I suggested she replace the tilapia, as most of it now comes from China and Taiwan, where pollution and other problems make it a fish to avoid, according to the experts at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I suggested halibut as an alternative, but then I saw the price, $26.99 a pound.

The tangy-tart taste of pineapple can really "juice up" mild-tasting main courses like fish, chicken and veal. All are low in saturated fat - good news for both calorie-counters and cholesterol-watchers. Today most pineapple products are available with no sugar added. The calorie savings can be significant. For example, one cup of crushed pineapple can be as little as 130 calories. But packed in syrup, the calorie count zooms to nearly 200 - or more, if it's extra-heavy syrup. The following recipes have a tropical flavor, just right for this time of year: POLYNESIAN FISH KEBAB 1 pound firm-fleshed fish steaks (salmon, swordfish, etc.)

Dorie Greenspan came to cook in my kitchen when her new cookbook, Around My French Table , was published last fall. (See that story at www.philly.com/philly/restaurants/105368503.html .) A prolific author who has rubbed elbows with the world's best chefs, Greenspan is also among the most gracious and humble people I've ever met. Most important, I love her recipes. Her latest book, an ode to French home cooking, is chock-full of 300 of her favorites, and she details each step in clear, straightforward prose.

A blind, 80-year-old disabled woman whose meals were usually prepared by a home health aide died last night in her West Philadelphia kitchen after she put aluminum foil in a microwave, setting off an explosion and fire that consumed her apartment, officials said. Nicole Swaayze was pronounced dead in her fourth-floor unit in the Katie B. Jackson Apartments, a Philadelphia Housing Authority senior facility at 400 N. 50th St. The four-story, 59-unit brick building was evacuated, and two other residents were treated for minor injuries.
