For a man serving up "Chicken Soup" to the masses in a series of comforting runaway best sellers, solving the earth's atmospheric woes is just one item on his list of things to do. Mark Victor Hansen, 48, co-author with Jack Canfield of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books, plans to use proceeds of an upcoming book to finance the planting of 18 billion trees to save the earth's atmosphere. In an interview, Hansen also told of plans to "save" the American Red Cross (a portion of the profits from another book will go to that cause)

Chicken soup is just what the doctor orders to fend off or soothe those winter sniffles. But chicken soup needn't be bland and boring - a cliche of carrots, celery and noodles that tastes like nursing-home fare. How about Chicken Mulligatawny, Cock-a-Leekie or Sopa de Tortilla? There's a whole wide world out there, where chicken soup doesn't plop out of cans. Virtually every cuisine in the world has its own version of chicken soup and you've got them all to choose from, including steamy, spicy meal-size mixtures that can provide your whole dinner in a bowl!

Chicken soup is good for what ails you, especially if what ails you is too much fat. Did you know that chicken broth can be "first aid" as a cooking ingredient: a cure for bland and boring low-fat foods? Plain chicken soup, also known as broth or stock - homemade or canned - can be used in place of oil, margarine or butter in oh-so-many dishes. As the base for gravy or cream sauce, it takes the place of grease-soaked pan drippings. Rice, pasta or vegetables cooked in chicken broth need no buttering.

Cold and flu season is upon us. Now is the time when we start to reach into the medicine cabinet and wonder, what can my children take when they get a cold? The problem is, there is no easy answer. But there are a few basic rules to treat by. First, the Food and Drug Administration does not recommend over-the-counter cold and cough medicines for children younger than 2. The reason is these medications can have serious side effects on children. Second, viruses cause common colds.

After 15 months on Broadway, Golda's Balcony is on national tour, stopping at the Merriam Theater for eight performances. Valerie Harper, in gray wig and lots of padding, portrays Golda Meir and her commitment to the survival of Israel. William Gibson's play is part biography and part history lesson, sacrificing dramatic interest to the desire to cram a lot of information into 90 minutes. Politically, this play is comfort food, chicken soup for the anxious. Where the play ought to be muscular, it seems sentimental; given the current situation in the Middle East, lines such as "There will be peace when Arabs learn to love their children more than they hate the Jews" should explode off the stage, but Gibson is more interested in the lovable bubbie than the iron-willed leader.

With plummeting winter temperatures comes the irresistible craving for hot soup. The first choice to satisfy - and to comfort and cure cold weather ills - is a steaming bowl of chicken soup. And that is not just in America, but in most of the world. Chicken soup is a folk remedy that has been prescribed by mothers and grandmothers around the globe for at least a thousand years, and recent medical studies have even lent credence to the curative claims. Some call it Jewish penicillin, especially the variation that includes matzoh balls.

If it hasn't already happened to you, get ready. Even five minutes of casual news watching will alert you: This is the worst cold and flu season in recent memory. The sneezing that punctuates an unusually thick fatigue was my first clue that I was among the ill. Actually, my already-infected husband, sick a full week before I was, foretold the cold. Before I succumbed to the worst of it, something had to be done. I needed to make a lot of chicken soup for some serious symptom relief.

Anyone who recalls the old 4 Chefs - which in its heyday was Northeast Philadelphia's largest catering business - certainly remembers its delicious cream of chicken soup. By the cup or by the bowl, the soup was the talk of the town. 4 Chefs had an illustrious catering career. It opened for business in 1955 at Frankford Avenue and Levick Street, and was the kind of family place where you went for your Little League banquet - and, years later, for your wedding. Over the years, the fame of its chicken soup became so widespread that when one of the owners died, the creamy broth was mentioned in his obituary.

In an extraordinary turn of events in an extraordinary week, the following series of e-mail messages was discovered by Brian Dribbitz, a 14-year-old computer whiz who apparently hacked his way into the White House computer system. This is the unedited correspondence downloaded by Brian: Begala@whitehouse: James, had an idea this morning! I think I see a way out of this mess, maybe turn the whole disaster around. how about gettin' the Prez onto Oprah! That lady's flyin' at the moment, probably well on her way to a Nobel Peace Prize or something.

Perhaps I'm "sweating" the "small stuff" too much; possibly I'm being overly "Mars"; or maybe this unrelenting deluge of "chicken soup" has triggered the gag reflex of my soul. Nevertheless, at the risk of being perceived as positively negative, I must speak out. The time has come to cool it with all the inspirational self-improvement books, their sequels, their sequels' sequels, their spin-offs, and their spin-offs' sequels - quite simply, all the repackaged, syrupy, mind-numbingly repetitive tomes by all the Mr. and Mrs. and Dr. and Rev. Feelgoods assuring us either that we're "special" or at least "OK," or, failing that, by reading their books, can begin to be. Enough with the uplift, already.

Much has changed around Fitler Square over the last quarter century, from the blossoming of Schuylkill River Park to a high-end housing boom and the arrival of trendy new dining options and $4 pour-over coffee. But one thing that has remained a constant: Café Lutécia, the cozy 25-seat cafe at 23d and Lombard that serves French home cooking for breakfast and lunch - warm quiche, fresh salads, soulful soups, and baguettes stuffed with pâté - not to mention the neighborhood's best gossip.

JANUARY is National Soup Month, and so it is fitting that this month's Daily News Top Cook is celebrated in her family for her homemade chicken soup and matzo balls. Janet Richman of Clementon, N.J., is her family's go-to for the holiday bowl of this traditional Passover fare, but she's learned the value of banking some soup in the freezer for flu season. "A big bowl of soup and salad makes a great meal on a cold winter night, and it's easy to do," she said. The original recipe for Richman's matzo balls came from her mother's cookbook, Five Thousand Years in the Kitchen , produced by the Temple Emanu-El Sisterhood at that Dallas, Texas, synagogue.

A brisket the size of Kansas and laced with fat was always lying in a thick gravy. At my grandmother's house, that hefty brisket was synonymous with Rosh Hashanah, just like the weighty matzo balls that never quite floated in Gertrude Goldberg's chicken soup. My sister and I found ingenious ways to dispose of both the brisket and the matzo balls that involved sleight of hand - and napkins. Never mind the details. The gefilte fish was made from live carp kept in Grandmom's bathtub until the moment came for cooking.

WINTER'S a great time for soup, if only because it's a great time for catching a cold. And what's better for restoring health than venerable chicken noodle soup? That ancient folk remedy is so well-known that science eventually weighed in on its mysterious power. Two get-better benefits were established: The steam from the hot broth helps to decongest; and the antioxidants in veggie-rich soups boost the immune system. Sorry, no chicken-specific gain was found. Soups are a great opportunity to work in more plant-based meals, especially at this time of year.

The son of television and movie actress Cybill Shepherd this morning was ordered to attend 24 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings as a condition of his sentence, which stems from his January arrest on theft charges at Philadelphia International Airport. During a hearing that took only several minutes, Cyrus "Zack" Shepherd-Oppenheim, 22, was admitted into the state's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program (ARD) by Philadelphia Municipal Judge Georganne V. Daher. The program is designed to speed up the legal process for first-time offenders, often those facing drunk driving charges.

He has two places of his own now - Izakaya, a sexy Japanese pub in the Borgata that does 710 covers on an unremarkable Saturday night, and, at 13th and Sansom, a sleek, new-Asian cafe called Sampan. So Michael Schulson, a self-described "white guy" with well-received runs at New York's Buddakan and West Philly's Pod, can lay credible claim to being one of the savvier interpreters of updated Asian fare. (Think slick Korean rice cakes with spicy Italian sausage "Bolognese"; steak and poached egg bahn mi sandwiches bright with pickled shallot; ramen noodle soup with a succulent shred of smoked pork neck.

For a recipe that doesn't have a lot of ingredients, there are many variations when it comes to making matzo balls. Here are several to choose from, including one right from the Manischewitz Matzo Meal box. All are served in chicken soup, preferably homemade, so there's a recipe for that, too. Figure on two matzo balls per person served with soup as a first course. Let's begin with a traditional recipe from 1941's "Jewish Home Beautiful," by Betty D. Greenberg and Althea O. Silverman, published by the Women's League of the United Synagogue of America.

Summer at the Shore is a distant memory, but the beaches and ocean are still there even in the dead of winter. Sure, there's something to be said for Cape May's Victorian holiday hoopla, but if you are a real contrarian you'll find the solitude of the quieter off-season places welcoming and a certain satisfaction in braving the elements. Which is how I came to find myself in Wildwood Crest one blustery weekend, looking for good eats. Part of the fun is finding the year-round dining spots that enjoy feeding the locals who are taking a well-deserved breather from summer season.
