Across most Christian cultures, as Easter draws near, there's a shared notion that the springtime celebration demands some mixture of flour, yeast, and, most definitely, eggs. The symbolism of these breads is rich, as are their flavors, which run the gamut from sweet to savory. Any of these baked goods can enliven the Easter table. Hot cross buns are widely associated with Easter in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond, and they start appearing around Ash Wednesday.

If you've never tried scrambling eggs in the microwave, now is the time to try. Microwave-scrambled eggs can be the fluffiest imaginable. And here's another advantage: If you're dieting, you can eliminate some fat, because scrambled eggs don't stick to microwave "pans" the way they do to a stove-top skillet. The cooking times given here are for refrigerator-cold, large eggs. Obviously, warmer, smaller or larger eggs will microwave more quickly or slowly. For best results, follow our recipe explicitly and abide by these guidelines: Always use the container size recommended.

A year and a half ago, Evan Prochniak was sweet-talked into buying the company that had been crafting Zitner's Easter eggs for nearly a century. The chocolatier was on the market, and a deal to sell the building - without the business - had broken down. There was a chance Zitner's might be sold to another candy company, and its North Philadelphia factory vacated. The broker representing the owners, Thomas S. Bond, convinced Prochniak that Zitner's was fabulous, a beloved mom-and-pop with room to grow.

While lawmakers' efforts to pass a state budget captured all the attention recently, another measure was passed to deal with something perhaps more important than spending and taxes - keeping eggs cool. Yesterday, Gov. Casey signed the measure into law. It is called the Egg Refrigeration Law. It requires that egg producers and sellers refrigerate eggs. Its purpose is to cut down on the problem of salmonella poisoning associated with eating eggs. Chilling them helps.

Quick! Can you think of a culinary basic that can serve as breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert? When all else fails, make an omelet. What you add to an omelet determines whether it's more suited to morning, midday or midnight. How you make it decides if it'll be fattening or not. And good news for cholesterol-watchers as well as calorie counters: Yolk- free frozen egg substitute made from the cholesterol-free egg white works every bit as well as whole eggs in omelet recipes.

This is how it happens in Ethics Class. The teacher begins the morning with a carefully constructed and rather farfetched hypothetical case. Today, it's a doozie. Imagine, just imagine, says the teacher, that a couple comes to divorce court to split up their property. They are not wrangling over a house or a boat or car. What they each demand is custody of their seven pre-embryos, the creations of his sperm and her eggs that lie frozen at the in-vitro fertilization clinic. The class lets out a collective groan.

Green eggs and pan We haven't had great luck with nonstick pans. But our initial experience with Cuisinart's new "Green Gourmet" skillet was promising. Not only does it fry an egg without butter, but the cleanup is a cinch. Cuisinart says the nonstick surface is a petroleum-free, ceramic-based material, not the Teflon-style stuff said to harm the environment. Its other eco-friendly claims? The packaging is 100 percent recycled, and the pan needs less energy to stay hot. A subtle snap The cooler weather calls for these thin and crispy Swedish cookies, crackling with ginger, cinnamon and cloves.
