Inside the savory-scented digs of Honey Baked Ham & Cafe, spools of hardwood-smoked, spiral-sliced ham entice carnivorous palates. Here, chefs uphold the same traditions that Harry J. Hoenselaar created more than 40 years ago. Back then, he chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop.

The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.

In the kitchen of Cozy Cafe, cooks marinate chicken breasts in natural spices, craft spicy penne pasta to order, and pan sear southern-style turkey chops. After fully formed dishes pass through the kitchen doors, they travel to wooden tables or lounge-style seating in the restaurant’s dining area, which is brightened by a red accent wall and a flat-screen TV. Patrons can browse the Internet with their laptops or Atari 2600s, using complimentary WiFi while dining on Negril stew chicken and Caribbean-style tofu seasoned with island spices. On the first and third Sunday evening of every month, an open-mic night provides a showcase for musicians, comedians, and poets.

There are no shortcuts when it comes to losing weight and learning to live a healthier lifestyle. Effective regimens hinge upon a combination of medical insight, professional guidance and encouragement, and continuing education. Above all else, real-life change stems from a steadfast commitment to making changes and adjustments. All of these factors are taken into account by the professionals at Medifast Weight Control Centers, who use the most current understanding of weight-loss techniques to design personalized programs that complement individual needs and goals.

Going beyond traditional BMI measurements, the centers' technicians use Biospace InBody technology to obtain a detailed assessment of body composition, including muscle mass, body-fat percentage, water balance, and muscular development throughout the torso and limbs. Based on these data, the staff members are able to design a program that emphasizes the importance of a proper diet. These programs typically involve recommendations from the 70 available physician-developed meals, which are easy-to-prepare dishes that feature balanced servings of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll.

The meal regimens also aim to alter eating habits by encouraging clients to eat smaller portions at regular times throughout the day, controlling the cravings that can lead to overeating. Throughout each program, professional counselors will routinely meet with clients to ensure that they remain motivated and on-course.

Each day, Captain Vince Meyer and his crew set sail aboard the Brittany Lynn to trawl the bay for crabs. The best of their catch makes its way back to Vince's Crab House, where the kitchen staff transforms the fresh seafood into a menu representative of the Maryland coast. Jumbo lump crab cakes and clam strips set the stage for entr?es of flounder, orange roughy, and fried rockfish, but the sandwiches need no introduction. And they shouldn't?not when they're topped with fried oysters or soft-shell crab and served with a tall, refreshing glass of seawater.
