Mariah Bey was the first to arrive in the kitchen for our third cooking lesson. "Hellooooo," she crooned, throwing her arms wide open to announce herself. "What are we cooking today?" "Omelets," I said. "And you get to decide what to put in. I have lots of choices: mushrooms, peppers, greens, cheese, tomatoes. And we're also going to dye eggs for Easter. " "We're going to dye eggs!" she cried, her eyes filling with excitement. "This is the best cooking class ever!" I've been cooking once a week with fifth- and sixth-grade girls from St. Martin de Porres school in North Philadelphia, with the goal of improving not only their culinary skills but also their nutrition with easy meals they can make themselves.

Kingsway Church in Cherry Hill used to host a modest Easter egg hunt, by Pastor Bryon White's standards: about 3,000 eggs and 400 kids and parents. White, however, had been harboring greater ambitions. "I kind of had this grand vision of 25,000 eggs," he said. When he shared his idea with staff at the Assembly of God church before last Easter, "people looked at me like I was insane," White said. He now presides over what he believes to be Cherry Hill's largest egg hunt. On Saturday, volunteers from Kingsway will scatter 30,008 plastic eggs across the Cherry Hill High School West football field.

Just eight years ago, human egg freezing was an unproven, hit-or-miss, costly technology being hyped as a way to defy biological clocks. It's still expensive, but now, it works. On Wednesday, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the professional organization of fertility specialists, declared that egg freezing should no longer be considered experimental because the rates of pregnancies - and healthy offspring - were comparable to using fresh eggs. That's a dramatic shift from 2004, when the society said egg freezing should be provided only as part of a research study, with strict oversight and at no charge, to patients with no other hope of having their own genetic children.

Pennsylvania Health Secretary Eli Avila, who became known in Harrisburg for his dispute with a diner owner over the freshness of his egg sandwich, has resigned his position to pursue "other interests. " Gov. Corbett made the announcement through a news release today which gave only one other reason for Avila's departure: that he wanted to spend more time with his family who live in New York. Avila became the butt of water cooler jokes and a subject of newspaper headlines after he arrived in Harrisburg and almost immediately got into a kerfuffle with a Richard Hanna, owner of Roxy's Cafe, about the quality of his breakfast sandwich.

The debate over same-sex marriage shouldn't be reduced to a question of whether or not to buy a chicken sandwich — but it has. Multitudes of evangelical Christians and others flocked to Chick-fil-A restaurants Wednesday to eat in support of the chain's president, who has been vilified for voicing his opposition to gay marriage. Meanwhile, multitudes of same-sex marriage supporters are organizing a national kiss-in Friday at the restaurants. Each demonstration should be viewed as Americans exercising their free-speech rights to express an opinion on this particular subject.
