Fledgling foodies

Fledgling foodies

Several new online programs, modeled after Food Network-type shows, aim to get children interested in cooking.

The aspiring Bobby Flays will demonstrate recipes from start to finish and learn cooking techniques. But no matter what they cook, they'll refuse to eat anything that's not chicken fingers, pizza or butterscotch pudding.

El perro se lo comió: A Meadowdale High School Spanish teacher, on an unpaid leave of absence while she tours Spain, has been sending regular reports to her students -- including homework assignments.

Right now, her students are busy writing 750-word essays comparing and contrasting the weather in sunny and bright Salamanca, Spain, with drizzly and gray Lynnwood.

Kee-runch: After an unfortunate end to a weekend bicycle excursion, a Minneapolis man designed a smartphone app that performs a simple but urgent function: remind users that there's a bike on the roof rack before they attempt to drive into their garage.

The app may save your bike, garage door and vehicle, but it also cruelly deprives your neighbors of the funniest thing they'll see all year.
