It's a beet, minus the root. Chard is a relative of the beet, but puts its energy into producing tender leaves and crunchy stalks instead of its root. Generally, any flavor that works well with spinach will partner with chard: butter, lemon, cream, garlic, shallots and vinaigrette. Try it in this easy quiche. Rainbow Chard, Bacon and Brie Quiche Makes 6 servings 1 prepared uncooked pie crust 8 ounces bacon, cut into small chunks 1 small yellow onion, diced 6 cups chopped rainbow chard (about ?

Olga's Diner, the landmark at Routes 70 and 73 in Marlton, reopened for business yesterday morning, with owner John Stavros vowing to keep serving the fare that customers have come to expect over the last 62 years. Last week, state revenue agents seized the property after the diner's owners failed to pay $37,000 in back taxes, but on Tuesday Stavros struck an agreement with the Division of Taxation to repay the debt. Olga's morning manager, Libby Karaiskou, and the 25 people she said were employed there were eager to get back to work after an unscheduled seven-day vacation.

SOUP OFTEN qualifies as health food, but sometimes greasy or creamy ingredients can ladle plenty of extra calories and fat grams into your bowl. Take Subway's cream of potato soup with bacon, for example. A cup of that soup contains 210 calories and 12 fat grams. You could have a small order of McDonald's french fries instead for just 40 more calories and one more fat gram. So when Rachel Reynolds of Wichita, Kan., asked me to slim down a recipe for bacon-jalapeno corn chowder that had 235 calories and 9.1 fat grams per cup, I aimed to show that you don't need cream or even half-and-half to create a thick and creamy soup.

Give peanut butter a pass and bank on bacon if you want to avoid getting skunked. That was one of several lessons learned this week by 74-year-old Harry Sanford, whose dogged efforts to rid his Berwyn residence of an uninvited houseguest finally succeeded yesterday. The culprit: a baby black-and-white fur ball who burrowed through a garden and under the home's vinyl siding during Sanford's two-week Shore vacation. Sanford made the discovery on Tuesday when he got home, opened his basement door, and quickly backpedaled.

There are always eggs in my fridge. If you have bacon left over from the weekend, and some nice greens, you can throw together this light, elegant dinner in no time. "As with many classic French salads, there are a few hotly disputed versions in circulation," writes cookbook author Trish Deseine, describing her recipe for Frisee au Lardons (Bacon and Poached Egg Salad). But in her mind, "eggs and croutons don't seem to cohabit well, and I always prefer mopping up the egg yolk with a fluffy baguette to chasing it around with fried cubes.

The word picnic conjures up checkered tablecloths and wicker baskets packed perfectly for a warm day. However, at Picnic, 3131 Walnut St., it doesn't matter what the temperature is for hungry folks to partake in the offerings. Chef/owner Anne-Marie Lasher orders much of her food straight from the farm. This makes items like Picnic's Breakfast Sandwich extra special. It's made from organic Lancaster County eggs and cheese (both sold retail at Picnic) and bacon (an option left out for non-meat eaters)

What is it about the holidays that makes us long for the past? For the times when cards came through traditional mail. Presents were bought at a store. Turkey was never tofu. And spam . . . well, it was just a Monty Python routine: Man in cafe: "Well, what've you got?" Waitress: "Well, there's egg and bacon; egg, sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg, bacon and spam; egg, bacon, sausage and spam; spam, bacon, sausage and spam. . . . " Back then the joke was on a canned meat product.

Chad Beene likes peanut butter on everything, says his wife, Kellyann. When the couple opened the Urban Saloon in Fairmount recently, there was no question they'd serve a burger topped with peanut butter and bacon. Stop making that face! People put mayo on their burgers, right? Peanut butter-and-bacon has that fat-fat, salt-salt thing, with the added smokiness of the bacon and earthy nuttiness of the peanut butter. It's served on Texas toast, with a lettuce leaf. (Given the fat content, it should come with a nitro tab.)

LAST WEEK, the United Nations issued a report chronicling North Korea's massive human-rights violations under the rule of Kim Jong-un. It is estimated that there are up to 200,000 political prisoners. The report alleged that many have been executed, tortured and starved. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has visited North Korea and its idiot leader many times, which has inspired a 20th Century Fox film to be titled "Diplomats. " And get this: It's going to be a comedy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be directed by Tim Story, whose past projects include "Ride Along," "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" and "Barbershop.
