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.

Leaking shower pans can cause quite a bit of damage, and many times you might not become aware of it for a long while. If the pan has to be replaced, you might be talking lots of money and a lot of work. But before you get into all that, you might want to try a little trick that many people have used successfully. No matter what kind of pan you have, you might be able to seal the tile surface without actually repairing the pan. If the grout joints are properly sealed, no water goes through and, therefore, there's no need for the pan. Plan on coating the entire tile shower floor and at least one row of tiles up on all the walls.

What may have been the gutsiest long-jump competition of his career gave Carl Lewis a Pan-American Games gold medal yesterday, and it proved once again that, even without the world record, he is the all-time performer in the history of this event. Lewis came into the 10th Pan-Am Games hoping to surpass Bob Beamon's world record of 29 feet, 2 1/2 inches - an enduring standard set in the 7,500-foot altitude of Mexico City during the 1968 Olympics. But even before the competition started at Indiana University's track stadium, where a record crowd of 13,281 turned out for the Games' final session of track and field, Lewis' sea-level attempt at beating Beamon was gone with the wind.
