I'm a sucker for a good can of tuna, and this recipe gives it a slightly sophisticated profile, with greens, eggs, and a bit of Parmesan cheese. It's quick to put together, and so pantry-friendly you might not even have to shop. You do need a jumbo-muffin pan. Tuna Spinach Tortas 4 to 6 servings   10 ounces frozen spinach, preferably in a bag rather than in a block Two 5-ounce cans tuna packed in olive oil 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese 1/2 cup plain panko (bread crumbs)

Bonifacio Guenechea is a very generous man, and has some very special cooking ware. I first met "Boni" only a few months back when I borrowed three of his pans to cook a benefit beach party for Cystic Fibrosis at my brother's home in the Florida Keys. Boni's pans (he calls them "Magic-Pans") are giant paella pans that come with their own butane burner and tripod, and are perfect for cooking for a crowd. With three of them, I cooked beef, chicken and Florida lobster for 250 people in just over an hour.

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.

Athletes apparently are growing weary of the food in the Olympic Village. For breakfast, the menu is usually scrambled powdered eggs and overcooked bacon. For lunch and dinner, the choice is varied but straight, solid food without frills. Roast pork and chicken do not meet the needs of some athletes. Nor does the eternal noodle, American-style coffee or Korean-style ginseng tea. "That's the complaints we've been getting most of," said Anne Beddow of the International Olympic Committee.

JEANNETTE, PA. - A western Pennsylvania man found not guilty of beating his very intoxicated fiancée with a frying pan will still spend 20 to 60 months in prison for fighting with an officer who arrested him. Westmoreland County prosecutors charged Timothy Lenhart, 56, with attacking Jennifer Hix on July 10, 2010. About a year before that, Lenhart was acquitted of poking out Hix's eye with an umbrella, and he avoided conviction in the frying-pan attack because Hix testified that she couldn't remember the beating.

Off the diamond, they are a charmingly fresh-faced troupe that might pass for those on a high school senior class trip. Young - as in naive, unspoiled and slightly innocent - is the definitive word for the baseball players representing the United States in the 10th Pan- American Games. How young? Well, the 20-man U.S. team that won the right to face Cuba in today's gold medal game with a 7-6 victory over Canada last night includes a half-dozen 19- year-olds and seven other players who are 20. Of the seven whose longevity has qualified them for such envied privileges as drinking beer legally in any state, two said goodbye to 21 some months ago. At a seasoned 23, outfielder Don Guillot of Port Isabel, Texas, is the most venerable member of coach Ron Fraser's flock.

Dear Anne and Nan: I have several old cast-iron frying pans that have a layer or two (or three or four) of stuff on the outside. I've been trying to get it off but gave up. A neighbor lady said it was old water buildup from years of sitting in water. (We found these at an old barn sale.) I love cast iron and would like to get them back into usable order. - Louise Fairbanks, Tecumseh, Mich. Dear Louise: The "old-timey" way of cleaning the crusty residue from cast-iron cooking utensils (and the one we've always used)

A "kissing bandit" ended up in the frying pan after he broke into a 27- year-old woman's apartment in Oxford Circle on Nov. 19. "The victim struck him on the head with her frying pan," said Assistant District Attorney Gail Fairman yesterday. "That was after she kicked him in the groin, and he asked her to help him to get out of the apartment. " "'I didn't want to kill him," testified the woman during a preliminary hearing for Adam Ambrose, 27, of Hegerman Street near Tyson Avenue, Oxford Circle.

THE reimagined "Pan" takes place in a nutty new Neverland - so nutty it actually includes music from Nevermind. Yes, it's Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," chanted by captives as they mine pixie dust for Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), the tyrannical pirate who has dominion over all things (except, apparently, his freakish wardrobe, hair and make-up). What sort of director would create a fantastical imaginary world, then risk deflating the illusion by bringing us back to earth with 1990s grunge?

Each fifth grader from William H. Hunter Elementary School in Kensington had a different motivation for taking cooking lessons. "I wanted to learn how to cook more - and different things," said Janalys Torres, 11. "I wanted to help my mom in the kitchen," said Talitha Rivera, 10. "My mom gets scared when I cook," said Elias Figueroa, 10. "She's afraid I will burn down the house," he said. "I want to convince her I'm OK. " This class could accommodate them all, except for one minor detail: When one of their volunteer teachers, Kristin Stitz, practiced this week's chicken parm recipe at home, she started a fire in her oven.

Gov. Christie on Tuesday tapped a new state treasurer, filling one of several vacancies that opened in his cabinet after several officials left the administration in recent months. Ford M. Scudder, chief operating officer of Nashville-based Laffer Associates, will begin as treasurer next month, the governor's office said. He replaces Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff, who left in July. Scudder is also a senior research analyst at Laffer Investments, an investment management firm. The company's founder, Arthur Laffer, who also founded the economic research and consulting firm Laffer Associates, was a key economic adviser to President Ronald Reagan, and is often called the father of supply-side economics - a theory that elevates the role of lowering taxes over government spending in stimulating economic growth.

"PAN," the unnecessary retelling of Peter Pan, which cost an estimated $150 million to produce, earned $15.5 million in its opening weekend, according to Rentrak estimates yesterday. That is not a good number. Early tracking did not look promising for the Joe Wright -directed film but still predicted that "Pan" would open at least in the $20 million range. Tracking, however, was done by the same group that said that 1.5 million would come here to see the pope. The high-wire spectacle "The Walk" also stumbled in its first weekend in wide release, after debuting on IMAX screens last week.

The initial plan to move Gennaro's Tomato Pie from Jackson Street to a larger space beside East Passyunk's Singing Fountain was thwarted by a lack of juice. Owner Mike Giammarino simply couldn't bring enough electricity to his new address to fuel the high-tech ovens that give Gennaro's round pies their signature crispness. So Giammarino, who still spends half the week in Manhattan running the family's historic Lombardi's, decided to use old-school gas-deck ovens for a genuine ode to his nonna Grazia Carbone (the "Grace" in Grace & Pat's)

Brittany Jordan was so excited that she was ready to burst when I arrived for cooking class at Roberto Clemente Middle School last week. "I made the chicken for my family!" she exclaimed. "It was so good! My mom was so proud," she beamed, as she pulled up a beautiful photo of nicely browned chicken drumsticks on her cellphone. "Oh, Brittany, I am so excited for you!" I said. The aspiring cook had used the marinade recipe for the honey mustard chicken wings we made in class, but adapted it, using it on drumsticks instead of wings.

'Peter Pan' flies through flak So, how did Peter Pan Live! do? As you'll recall, NBC's hallowed stage show, made famous in live-on-TV performances by Mary Martin as Peter and Cyril Ritchard as Captain Hook, was resurrected Thursday, with Allison Williams ( Girls ) beltin' it out as Peter, Christopher Walken as a tottering, apparently Xanax'ed Captain, and Minnie Driver as the adult Wendy. There was a lot of pressure. NBC presented this show thrice live, in 1955, 1956, and 1960.
