--Hey y'all, Paula Deen is looking for some real Philly women -- not ladies who hail from the land of cheese steak and the Liberty Bell, but ladies who love to cook with Philadelphia Cream Cheese. You have until Sunday to submit your recipes for a shot to win $25,000. In the meantime, watch Nana P and Nana D make some cookie-and-cream-cheese concoction ... and scrub their teeth(!) with Philly Cream Cheese.

--I don't need a doggy bag, thank you. I've got my own.

--Moby -- DJ, songwriter and noted vegan -- joins Evan Kleiman on Saturday on "Good Food" to talk about the ethics of eating.

--The Obama administration has come back with its final program for restoring endangered salmon on the Columbia River -- a plan substantially like the last one.

--Looking for a new nightlife spot? How about 1642 near Echo Park. The former Lupita's space on Temple Street reopens with craft beer, wine and a dancing ghost.

--Watch your feet for broken plates and cries of "Opa!" at the O.C. Greek Festival in Anaheim. St. John Greek Orthodox Church, 405 N. Dale St., Anaheim. 3 p.m. Fri., noon Sat.-Sun. $3. www.ocgreekfest.com.
