Nubian goats newest Cabrini residents by Kristin Cleary July 09, 1998 'What are they, some cows or something?' asked one man said, peering down at the two creatures. 'Keep those things away from my shorty!' a mother cried, pulling her small child's groping hands back from the animals.   'Don't talk like that around your baby!' joked Dan Underwood, program director and pioneer of Chicago's newest urban agriculture project. 'You don't want him to grow up being scared of animals.'   Underwood has been teaching children about the wonders of gardening and farming for nearly seven years. He has created three gardens, known as Cabrini Green as part of the Inner City Horticultural Foundation. Underwood and his young charges harvest a variety of crops, including spinach, lettuce, herbs and many other delectable goodies, and sell them almost weekly to fine Chicago restaurants, including Charlie Trotter's and the Frontera Grill. The lettuce even appears in a special Cabrini Greens salad at Michael Jordan's Restaur ...

Wanna be like all the cool kids? Spice it up! As people who live in scorching climates, such as those of Mexico and India, know well, eating hot stuff can cool you down. "Chili peppers contain capsaicin, a chemical compound that helps us to perspire more readily," says Rick Bayless, the James Beard Award-winning chef of Frontera Grill, in Chicago. When this sweat evaporates, you experience brief relief.
