What is it?
Kellogg's Keebler has something completely new: Cinnamon Roll cookies. The soft cinnamon cookies with a swirl of darker cinnamon cookie in the center do look vaguely like cinnamon rolls. They come in two flavors: original and caramel pecan. The latter lists natural and artificial flavors - and no pecans - among the ingredients. But the label adds they "may contain peanuts and tree nuts."
Teddy Grahams, Nabisco's graham crackers shaped like little bears, are joined by Teddy Grahams Soft Paws, which are unlike them except in name. Individually wrapped Soft Paws (eight to the box) weigh an ounce apiece, are thick and soft and are shaped like paws (or catcher's mitts). They come in apple-cinnamon or oatmeal raisin.
Frenched is a kitchen term that means scrapping something free from the bone. The bones on rack of lamb or a crown roast often are frenched to make serving easier. With chicken, it's more commonly known as airline chicken, a boneless breast with the first joint of the wing still attached. Most sources say airlines developed the cut in the 1960s. Back when meals were free, they wanted something that looked more substantial.
Wine of the Week
2011 Domaine Dupuy de L�me Bandol rose
Price: About $20
Style: Dry and complex
What it goes with: Bouillabaisse, grilled fish, Thai food
Domaine Dupuy de Lome (don't let the difficult-to-remember name put you off) is a real find. The vineyard is sustainably farmed, which is expensive, yet Gerald Damidot is producing a beautiful Bandol rose for about $20. A blend of 70 percent Mourvedre with 20 percent Grenache and the balance Cinsault, the 2011 is dry and zesty with notes of apricot and rose petals and a complexity that makes it ideal for summer foods.
