On the label of Daisy Smith's signature applesauce, several essential ingredients aren't listed. But you can almost taste them. "Determination, perseverance, hard work, and love," says Smith, whose sauce is featured at Momma's Home Made, her new Voorhees takeout. Set between a grocery store and a gold exchange in the modest Southgate Plaza on Haddonfield-Berlin Road, Momma's Home Made celebrated its grand opening Monday. The menu is soul food with a fresh twist and a light touch.

I SPLIT A Starbucks espresso fudge brownie with a friend recently, and here's how we described it: "Oh, my heavenly yum!" My taste buds felt treated, but I spent too much money and way too many fat grams on that chocolate concoction. I craved a healthier version of this dessert that I could bake at home to save calories and cash. So I started tinkering with a recipe I created several years ago to amp up the chocolate and tone down the fat. If you're a calorie-conscious chocolate addict like I am, you know that portion control is key. That's why I decided to make cookies instead of brownies.

Angelo Calafati munches a fistful of Cheerios. Directly across from him, his mother, Dana, coos and smiles. She holds up a stack of 10 large cards with pictures of exotic flowers, and like a gunner who has found her target, she rattles off complex names for several seconds. South African daisy. Feverfew. Greater stitchwort. Angelo grins. He shows off his two front teeth. He gazes intently at the purple prickly pear. He furrows his brow. At times, he looks away. Over the morning's breakfast at the carriage house in Oaks, Calafati, 32, will present more large flash cards, many handmade, that cover a variety of subjects: European flags, mammals, forest animals, composers, even historical farm tractors and military helicopters with model numbers.

A cafeteria worker at a Camden school and an alleged accomplice were arrested yesterday on charges of hauling off boxes of cheese biscuits, pears, applesauce and other food originally destined to feed students, police said. The school, H.B. Wilson Elementary, was stunned earlier this week by accusations that its principal was part of a scheme to submit phony pay vouchers. The school is also under investigation by the state for posting unusually high test scores. "We're talking about stealing food for children," School Board President Philip E. Freeman said yesterday.

Oxford has not won a Southern Chester County League wrestling title since 1994. The Hornets took a major step toward a championship last night with a 33-20 domination of a good Avon Grove team. And to think the Hornets owe it all to applesauce and grapes. With the victory, Oxford, which is ranked No. 6 in the suburbs by The Inquirer, improved to 13-2 this season. No. 7-ranked Avon Grove dropped to 11-1. Danny Wray, the Hornets' senior 171-pounder, came up with a big pin to secure the match for Oxford.

Muffins are just about the easiest and fastest of any bread to prepare. Like all quick breads, they assemble in minutes and bake quickly. And muffins require about half the baking time of quick-bread loaves because of their size. Standard muffins are about 2 1/2 inches in diameter, and dainty mini-muffins have a diameter of about 1 3/4 inches. Quick breads, by their very nature, come together in a snap, however the preparation time can be streamlined even more by completing the early stages in advance.

Annie "Nancy" Dougherty, an Irish immigrant who opened her heart and home to emigres from Ireland, died Sunday of respiratory failure at Lankenau Hospital. She was 94. Born in 1904, she was the seventh of 10 children of John and Mary O'Donnell and grew up on a farm in Glendowan, County Donegal, Ireland. Nancy outlived her siblings. When she was 21 years old seeking work, she immigrated alone to the U.S. through Ellis Island. She spoke quickly with a soft Irish brogue. In describing her early life in America, Nancy glossed over her adventure via boat through Ellis Island like it wasn't a big deal.

I thought I could hear my roommate's heart break when I read that Microsoft would be investing in Apple Computer. At least he learned more about it on his Netscape browser. A Macintosh loyalist in spirit who has a substantial investment not only in the machinery of the system but also in applications, my roommate has depended on Apple platforms for nearly a decade. But he and the 7 percent non-Microsoft remnant he represents don't matter much anymore on the operating system front.

So it has happened. Luke Skywalker has gone over to the Dark Side. He has turned his back on the Force, pushed Obi Wan Kenobi off his board of directors, and accepted $150 million of Darth Vader's blood money. We are talking, of course, of Steve Jobs and Apple Computer, the once valiant (if not exactly market-savvy) rebel kingdom and its deal with the Evil (well, smug and annoying, anyway) Empire of Bill Gates and his Microsoft Corp. OK, OK, maybe it's just another couple of rich-guy nerds figuring out a way to beat some other rich-guy nerds out of more market-share and you and me out of a few more dollars next time we try to buy the latest OS-this or PC-that.

First the stuffing goes into the turkey, then it goes into the boy. First grader Ryan Stubbe, dressed as a Pilgrim, made quick work of his portion during a holiday celebration at Media Elementary School. In an exercise of their math and reading skills, students followed recipes to make four kinds of bread, cranberry relish, applesauce, Mayflower potato boats, and apple and pumpkin pies.
