These corn- and red pepper-stuffed flank steak pinwheels are so colorful they look more suited to July than February. And the flavor screams backyard barbecue even though you'll never have to step outside to make them.

Flank steak is a wonderfully flavorful cut with little waste on it a 1 1/2-pound steak will easily feed four to six people. Plus, because it is a thin cut it is an excellent candidate for quick marinades that will fully penetrate.

Serve these pinwheels with a mixed green salad and some warm tortillas.

Is it really possible that sprouts are hip again?

Maybe that's a bit much to ask of a sprout. But they are hot. And they look – and taste – nothing like what you remember.

In the 30 or so years since they seemed to rule the sandwich and salad bar scenes, sprouts have, er. grown. They aren't just frilly green tendrils anymore. They are "sprouted" whole-wheat bread, rye crackers, baking flour, even brown rice.

Q. What are the options for treating prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among American men. Treatment for prostate cancer works best when the disease is found early.

There are many options for treating prostate cancer:

Ÿ Observation. If the cancer is growing slowly, you may decide to wait and watch.

Ÿ Hormone therapy. This stops cancer cells from growing.
