Everyone has cravings. But what the Zitelman sisters have - well, that might be better described as an addiction. Their substance of choice? Tahini, the roasted sesame butter that, they insist, is so much more than an ingredient in hummus or a drizzle for shawarma. They spread it on toast, whisk it into salad dressing, and substitute it for oil in baked goods. And, over the last eight months, they've made tahini their business, as co-owners of the sesame-powered start-up Soom Foods.

POOR ROY EDWARD BELL. The 58-year-old Fayetteville, W.Va., man died suddenly Oct. 19, so he did not live to see Pennsylvania Senate Bill 46 leap one more hurdle three days later toward becoming law. If passed, SB46 - dubbed the SESAME bill (as in "Stop Educator Sexual Abuse, Misconduct and Exploitation") - could prevent school employees accused of sexual perversions from hurting kids the way a sicko teacher hurt Roy Bell's son, Jeremy. That sicko, Edgar Friedrichs Jr., had been accused in 1972 of sexual improprieties with students while he taught in the Prospect Park, Delaware County, school district.

Backyard cookouts are part of the July Fourth tradition. But by July 5 or 6, burger and dog lovers might be ready to grill something new. Dave and Amy Rihl, owners of the Hula Grill on the Ocean City boardwalk, suggest trying fresh yellowfin (or Ahi) tuna steaks, which are inspired by the abundant seafood and Asian-influenced cuisine of Hawaii's North Shore. The recipe calls for ingredients easily found in Asian markets and specialty grocery stores and makes four sandwiches.

I never make resolutions, which means I never break them . . . and don't have to feel guilty when I do. But I do decide to do stuff from time to time. Last summer the doctor said I'd stop feeling like a grungy sponge if I lost weight and started to exercise regularly. Not only did I lose the weight, but I'm still working out (much to my surprise.) Then I decide that since we now have so many gardeners from tropical and sub-tropical places, I'd try growing some of their stuff.

While looking at a dense patch of mint growing in front of our house, my husband announced, "You've got to do something with that mint. " Do something? Like what? The mint was thriving in lush evidence of my skill (or, more likely, my lack of tampering), and he wanted me to do something. Did he think it looked too messy? Too overgrown? Couldn't he wait for the delicate, pink-lavender blossoms that would soon come? To my relief, he was simply battling my hoarding instincts and suggesting that I use some mint in my cooking.

Chinese restaurants are changing owners and chefs quicker than the eye can catch these days, but the recent changes at the old Cathay Inn in Delran have resulted in impressive improvement. The Szechuan King rose like a phoenix from the Cathay's ashes four months ago, replacing a restaurant with one of the most beautiful decors but some of the most undistinguished cuisine on South Jersey's restaurant scene. The new restaurant happily retained the Cathay's bright, sunny decor and brought in a chef who creates culinary masterpieces characterized by fresh ingredients, sweetened, beautifully balanced sauces and finished with exotic garnishes such as an intricate chrysanthemum carved from a single chunk of raw turnip.

In the early 1980s, China Flower was one of my favorite Chinatown haunts. When it disappeared without warning four years ago, I'd have been even more distressed had the replacement - Tang Yean, a Chinese health-food restaurant - not been equally appealing. Two months ago, another excellent Chinatown eatery, the Sun and Moon Inn, vanished just as mysteriously, but this time when a new sign went up over its door, the name was - are you ready? - China Flower. China Flower's owners say that they lost their lease in '84. Confusing?

When it comes to Hong Kong Jacks, there is both good news and bad news. The good news is that this Yardley restaurant even exists. The suburbs have precious few Chinese restaurants, and considering the potential rewards of this sophisticated cuisine, the more the better. But the bad news is that the cuisine is dull, without distinctive spark and, judging by a recent sampling, little more exciting than any old takeout restaurant. More's the pity, for the tiny restaurant in the Lower Makefield Shopping Center is attractively decorated in country-Chinese style that appeals to the visual if not the culinary senses.
