Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

Nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow is responsible for such hits as "All I Want to Do," "Soak Up the Sun" and "If It Makes You Happy, "

But along with being a total rockstar, Crow is also a cancer survivor - she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, which she accredits as her wake-up call to eat more seasonally, organically and locally.

With the help of co-author and personal chef Chuck White, she documents this new, cleaner approach to food in her just-released cookbook, If It Makes You Healthy.

Mag admits to screw-up after beef with vegan blogger

The nation’s leading vegetarian news and lifestyle magazine has admitted it “screwed up” by attempting to pass off meaty recipe photos as meatless in the pages of its magazine and online.

VegNews issued a mea culpa last week after a blogger outed the publication for using images of chicken and hamburgers from a royalty-free image service to illustrate recipes such as “veganized” Brunswick stew and “Magical Meatball Burgers.” The VegNews team defended its actions, attributing them to a lack of images of vegetarian dishes and the high costs associated with image-gathering, especially for an independent publication like VegNews.

This week, the magazine went a step further, vowing to never again let images of cooked animals carcasses grace its pages and promising to host a photo bank of vegan stock images.

As Jewish families around the world sit down at the Seder dinner table to commemorate the Passover holiday, conversations will no doubt turn to an age-old debate. No, not the question of tax cuts versus tax increase. It's a discussion that has as many diverse opinions as any political dispute: "Who makes the best matzah balls?"

In the quest to answer this question the South Florida Golden Matzah Bowl was held. Among the judges was a Catholic priest responsible for choosing the winner in the "Father Knows Best Award."

Local chefs took up the challenge and brought their version of matzah balls to the Forest Trace community center in Lauderhill, Florida. Among the other titles to be awarded were "Most Like Mama," "Chef's Choice," and the ultimate prize, a chance to be crowned "Best All-Around Matzah Ball."

Per our pals at This Just In:

50,000 jobs: McDonald's is looking to hire as many as 50,000 people today as part of its National Hiring Day promotion.

Jobs are available at both the corporate and restaurant levels. Job-seekers can go to the company's website or check at local franchises to find positions.

Some might turn up their nose at the notion of getting down with the clown, but manning the fish station at his local franchise was what inspired newly-crowned Top Chef Richard Blais to pursue a cooking career.

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Salute! April 19 is National Amaretto Day.

The almond-flavored liqueur wears many a hat in the culinary world. Shake it up in long drinks; enjoy neat or on the rocks. Pucker up with an Amaretto Sour or perk up with a splash in a cup of hot black coffee.

Incorporate it into truffles, cheesecake or tiramisu - that's amore amaretto.
