A free supply of nicotine replacement medication and a handful of automated phone calls made smokers who wanted to quit much more likely to succeed, according to results of a clinical trial published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Vacation. It’s supposed to be time off and away from work. However, more than 3/4 of U.S. respondents to a TripAdvisor survey say they have worked while on vacation during the past year.
If you need a dessert to feed a crowd, here’s one to try. These Chocolate Cheesecake Bars require mainly pantry ingredients and are simple to put together. When making them, be sure to plan on the chilling time. They need to chill at least four hours in the refrigerator, but overnight is best.
Burgers. Dogs. Steaks. Maybe some sausages. We know you’ve got the grilling part of your Labor Day cookout covered. So rather than mess with that, we’ll offer up some delicious sides that will complement whatever else you have on the menu.
Korean tacos originated in California under the auspices of Kogi, an L.A.-based taco/Korean barbecue truck that has attracted a legion of loyal Twitter followers and Facebook fans.
In late summer, I make this grilled fruit crisp every week. It is good with whatever fruit you find at the market, ripe and ready to be mixed with a little bit of sugar, citrus and cinnamon.
Labor Day, summer’s last hurrah, is a feast day. And mostly — Tell the truth! — we tend to overdo it. Ribs, steaks, burgers and hot dogs? Check, check, check and check!

Working with wood comes naturally to New York interior designer Dan Faires. He grew up in an old farmhouse and has been developing his carpentry skills for much of his life.
I’m not sure whether the target audience for James Cameron’s “Deepsea Challenge 3D” is aficionados of undersea adventure or aficionados of James Cameron. The movie, which documents the filmmaker’s 2012 expedition — in his own personal submarine — to the deepest point in all of Earth’s oceans, features less 3-D footage of sea cucumbers and exotic octopi than of Cameron’s nose. It’s a movie about exploring the vast, “dark continent” of the ocean’s deepest places (to quote Cameron, who produced and narrates the film) that ends up feeling claustrophobic. Much of it was shot inside a metal sphere the size of a fitness ball.
Grilled turkey sausages with a mango relish make a sweet and spicy summer dinner.
Grilling shrimp is a delicious way to cook them. But don’t just toss shrimp on the grill (unless they’re huge) because they could fall through the grates. A better way is to skewer them so they cook evenly and they’re easier to tend to. When preparing the shrimp, remove all but the tail of the shell which makes a nice presentation.
Often, the best dishes are the simplest. This is illustrated perfectly by this recipe for grilled tomatoes on the vine with burrata. Tomatoes with mozzarella is one of my favorite combinations, and I love it even when the tomatoes are less than perfect and the mozzarella is a little bland. But take a bunch of cherry tomatoes on the vine, grill them and serve them with burrata and some grilled bread and you’ve got an amazing dish!
