    Transformative power of paprika
    Chalk it up to goulash. A bowl full of my grandmother's simple goodness ignited a passion for spice that never wanes. She peppered chicken or beef with the freshest Hungarian paprika possible. The rusty red powder smelled sweet and tasted lush, nearly...

    'The Ballad of Barnabas Pierkiel' a darkly comic folk tale
    Magdalena Zyzak's delightful first novel, "The Ballad of Barnabas Pierkiel," has no noble characters, a good deal of mean-spirited behavior, and it all ends badly — in other words, it's a comedy. For those who think that religious fanaticism, racial...
