On today's show we'll research the role of food in our sex lives....our "hot and heavy" show, if you will. We'll take a serious, and sometimes not so serious, look at the role of food in our sex lives. Discover the foods that enhance sexual health. Learn about the ancient art of Tantra and the path to sensual energy. We even take an in-depth look at the life of bees and honey as an aphrodisiac. And to seal it with a kiss, we've got an amorous recipe for molten chocolate cakes with cherries! Plus our monthly wine recommendations and more.

It's been said that eating is not only an agricultural act, but also a political one. But it does make sense that how we eat can make a lasting impact on our environment - the problem is figuring out what choices really matter. Paper plates? Organic Vegetables? Bottled Water? This week we examine some choices. From replacing veal with buffalo to entertaining tips that don't fill up the landfill with one-time products, we'll discuss the quandries, questions and curious solutions to "living green." We'll talk to the author of "The Ethical Gourmet," discover a winery that composts four-star meals, and talk to the Soup Peddler. Plus much more......

No matter how you slice 'em it's the time of year to enjoy apples! On today's show we take a bit out of fall and get an in-depth look at the art of eating an apple. And if you want to get the most of out of your grill before the winter hits -- try breakfast. Then we take a look at a museum exhibit and the history of Chinese Restaurants. Susannah Foo stops by to talk about her Eastern/Western fusion, Corrine Trang gives us tips on rice and we cook with ginseng - it's not just for tea. Plus kids allergies, a singing table and a whiskey consultant.
