A Mayfair neighborhood may find itself with a corner outlet for coffee and cake, but before it does, the city intends to check out parking problems in the area. John R. Szewczak, a 28-year resident of the block, asked the Zoning Board of Adjustment last week to approve opening of a basement baked-goods outlet at 3001 McKinley St. Szewczak told the board at the Tuesday hearing that he had made arrangements with a bakery at Kensington Avenue and Ontario Street for twice- a-day deliveries, so the Danish and other baked goods would be fresh.

A frustrated baked-goods distributor accused Samuel Feldman yesterday of damaging 175 bags of bagels, 227 bags of potato dinner rolls, and 3,087 bags of Freihofer's sliced bread during a two-year blitz of destruction down the aisles of a Lower Makefield supermarket. "Squeezed and poked," Thomas Gibney testified grimly, describing how Feldman allegedly manhandled $7,100 worth of baked goods. Feldman, 37, an advertising salesman, is on trial as Bucks County's alleged bread squeezer and cookie crumbler, charged after officials at the Giant Supermarket, located in the Yardley area, installed videotape equipment to try to catch the furtive bread saboteur in action.

My father was a meat-and-potatoes man, unashamed and unrepentant. His taste in baked goods ranged from apple pie to chocolate cake. So my mother, who yearned to try new recipes, became a prize sneak. Her most-often-given order to me in the kitchen was, "Don't tell your father what's in this!" She'd set the new concoction in front of my father, he'd poke at it a few times with his fork and, lured by the aroma, would take a bite. "That's good," he'd declare, and polish off the entire serving, often asking for more.

Cake without guilt? Fat-free cakes? It's true. Just take out the egg yolks, change a couple of other ingredients, and your fat-free dessert is a piece of cake. Indeed, eliminating egg yolks and substituting nonfat milk products helped the bakers at Entenmann's attain their goal of cutting all offending fats from their new line of baked goods. Not only is the cholesterol gone, but so is the fat. The secret methods that they used for creating plausible pastries without shortening are not about to be disclosed by company president Greg Murphy.

Samuel Feldman, accused cookie poker and bread squeezer, turned down a first-offender program yesterday, opting instead to let a Bucks County jury decide whether he roamed through markets, damaging baked goods worth more than $8,000. Feldman, an advertising salesman, declined to pay thousands in restitution, a key condition of entering the program, according to Ted Fritsch, chief of prosecution for the Bucks County District Attorney's Office. The trial is to begin today. Since his arrest in December, when he was accused of puncturing and mutilating shelves of bread and cookies during two years, Feldman has declared his innocence, saying through his lawyer that he was guilty of nothing more than feeling the merchandise to see whether it was fresh.

For three years, grocers in Bucks County have been baffled by a stealthy outlaw who they say sauntered through their aisles quietly ambushing their baked goods. Their shelves were lined with bags of crumbled cookies and bread that was smashed, poked and twisted beyond any hope of being sold. "It was mutilated. You could actually see there was a hand there," said Lou DeFranceseo, general manager of McCaffrey's market in Yardley, where the culprit struck dozens of times. Cookie and bread distributors were so puzzled by the losses that they at first assumed the damage was sabotage - the work of the competition - and called store owners to demand that they do something to stop it. "They were blaming each other," DeFranceseo said.

Christine Ruggio's daughter is gluten-intolerant, so, in the past, sending her off to summer camp used to require packing a cooler filled with gluten-free baked goods. But this summer, packing for field-hockey camp at the University of Delaware was less of a hassle. "Out of 100 kids, seven were celiac, 15 had to eat gluten-free. They had a complete menu for them, so they could have anything they want. It's come a long way," Ruggio said. "Of course," she added, "we supply them, so that made it a lot easier.

BISHOP Thomas Martin, 78, starts his Tuesdays before 5 a.m. on a mission: prepare meals for 200 or more people at a North Philadelphia church - sometimes by himself. "I get tired," admitted Martin, of Elkins Park. "But it's a mission, and in a mission you get strength. " For about 15 years, Martin has helped run Mount Olive Holy Temple's feeding program, a sit-down meal from noon to about 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the church on Broad Street near Jefferson. The goal is to provide a hearty meal to homeless and low-income folks who come from across the city.

DUCK, N.C. - My family and I felt right at home from the minute we arrived at this seaside town near the northern end of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Two of the first people we met were a mother from Warminster and her grown daughter from Levittown, shopping in a Rite-Aid for items we each had neglected to pack. At a seafood restaurant, a young family at the next table turned out to be from Levittown - the father's Phillies cap was a conversation-starter. And when we tried to phone in an order for barbecue, I accidentally dialed the restaurant's sister eatery - in New Britain, Central Bucks County.

With so many holiday-related tasks to manage - shopping, wrapping, baking, (cleaning and) decorating, partying, and making travel plans, all on top of that other little thing known as work - the prospect of actually entertaining guests can feel overwhelming. Like it or not, though, family is on the way and the clock is ticking. What's a well-meaning but frazzled host to do? Open your home to loved ones, yes, but also know your limits. Give yourself a break by planning meals that can be made ahead and frozen until needed.
