Fudge. Readers offer recipes. This week's Daley Question in +Chicago Tribune 
Daley Question readers responded generously to my plea for help in finding a fudge recipe made with Nesquik, formerly known as Nestle Quik. ("Fudge recipes, Nestle-style," Daley Question, Feb. 18, 2015). Bob Smith wrote in from Wheat Ridge, Colo., asking for a recipe he believed his dad had taken from a Nestle Quik can in 1971 or 1972.

Whole Foods opens in Lincoln Park. +Chicago Tribune 's +Judy Hevrdejs is there. Photo gallery of store features, too.
The Whole Foods Market at Fullerton and Sheffield opened Wednesday with the usual hoopla (very, very long braided bread was used for their traditional bread breaking ceremony in lieu of old-style ribbon-cutting). And when customers finally headed through the doors, they found a supermarket with neighborhood feel in its salute to DePaul University (royal blue and scarlet color accents), the five quinoa salads on the food bar, the street-side wal...

Hungry for a Lenten meal this Friday? JeanMarie Brownson has ideas in +Chicago Tribune 
I have friends and family who eat out almost every meal. I just can't do it — I enjoy cooking, but mostly I covet control of my food dollars and my nourishment. For most weeknight dinners and lunches, I rely on a well-stocked pantry. Fortunately, today's supermarkets offer such wide varieties of staples that it's simple to keep inspiring options on hand.

Heating up flavor. +Judy Hevrdejs tells you how in +Chicago Tribune 
Playing with fire in the kitchen is definitely dangerous. But it can also be delicious — if you learn to play with a few culinary heat makers.

Charro beans. Food Editor Joe Gray shares a recipe in +Chicago Tribune 
When I was growing up, my dad often would make a big pot of beans, usually navy, flavored with ham, and offer us kids bowlfuls. He'd eat them all himself, though. We weren't eating beans. Are you kidding?

Oatmeal whole wheat bread recipe. Daley Question. Chicago Tribune.
Q: Sometime between 1970 and 1975; the Trib published a wonderful bread recipe for an oatmeal whole wheat bread that included honey and dry milk. My memory tells me it was the tastiest bread I 've ever made. I took the recipe with me when we moved overseas in 1975 and remember teaching a class of 4th graders at the International School of Brussels how to bake whole wheat bread. Another outstanding feature of this recipe was it made three loave...

'Samsara' review by +Chris Jones in +Chicago Tribune 
The theater is a funny place. It's not hard to believe a mother is having quite a profound conversation with the fetus inside her womb — writ large and standing before her. But an over-acting fetus? An over-the-top embryo leaping all over the stage, like no self-respecting embryo surely would do even in someone's fever dream? Well, that just stops you cold.

Fudge! Recipes may be found in this week's Daley Question in +Chicago Tribune 
Q: I have searched for several months and have been unsuccessful trying to track down a recipe that my dad pulled from a Nestle Quik can from about 1971, or 1972. The recipe was for a fudge that either exclusively, or primarily, used Nestle Quik and a double boiler. The fudge was very high in sugar content, so it was sweeter than many fudge recipes, but the chocolate flavor was more mellow. I have tried searching nostalgia sites as well as eBa...
