A new cookbook is taking soup recipes where others haven't gone: scaling them back to create mini servings for feeding smaller households.

An empty nest served as the inspiration for Joanna Pruess' latest cookbook, "Soup for Two - Small-Batch Recipes for One, Two or a Few."

"I love soup but got tired of recipes that ended up making a vat full of it," the New York author said. "My children have grown up and moved on. I live in a small apartment with a small kitchen, limited refrigerator and freezer space. And I have zero interest in eating the same soup - no matter how tasty - several days running."

So she took several of her favorite recipes and reformulated them to make two 12-ounce bowls or three 8-ounce cups. Most of

Recently I came across two new-to-me products packed with healthy nutrients.

Let's start with aronia berries, or chokeberries. There's a reason they're called chokeberries: These purple berries offer an astringent taste. The fruit is native to North America and was a staple in the diets of Native Americans and early settlers.

The batch of frozen Superberries brand berries I sampled from was incredibly bitter. However, the fruit mellowed when cooked in something, such as pancakes, and was downright delicious with the addition of warm maple syrup. The berries also can be added to smoothies with endless flavor combinations that soften their taste.

ACME Bar & Grill has opened at the site of the former Estela's Mexican Restaurant, 925 S. Eighth St.

It's from owner Ashley Deroche and business partner Phil Duhon, who says, "I'm the cook here."

The pair own Oscar's Tejon Street Bar.

The interior of ACME is rustic, warm and welcoming, and the menu is focused on comfort food like biscuits and gravy, sloppy joes, bacon-wrapped hot dogs topped with queso and jalapenos, and a giant salad in near sink-sized bowls served with a bottle of dressing.

"We want to appeal to families and moms," Duhon said. "The salad concept is a checklist of what you want on the salad. You customize it."

Duhon plans to offer specials with everything made from scratch. "Great

Elayne Prechtel was up to the challenge.

By chance, the avid home cook read our story about the Rodelle Challenge. Contestants were asked to send their best, worst or funniest baking moment. Prechtel knew she had a good story and was eager to share it.

"This is a special story that changed everything about how I interact and involve my kids in the kitchen," she wrote in her entry. "If it hadn't of happened, I would probably be shooing them out of the kitchen to this day. Way back in 2003, I was busy, operating in solo mode in the kitchen ('cause all of us moms know how much easier it is to concentrate with one cook in the kitchen), when my then 2-year-old daughter walked into the kitchen and decided to unexpectedly jump in
