THEME:   food homonyms substituted in phrases
Title:  Playing with your food   
Group that thrived during the borscht era?   BEET GENERATION [the Beat Generation actually coincided with the Borscht Belt hayday]   
Cake recipe overhaul?   TORTE REFORM   
They might be game   FOWL   [they're certainly not up for the game]
Intro to physics?   ASTRO-   
Gently or quietly?   ADVERB   
Lover's end?   -PHILE  [scared for a moment, then I thought end as in purpose --- wrong again!]   
Impressionist's forte   APING [I was sure COLOR was right]   
Advance in the race?   EVOLVE [if you believe all evolution is advancement e.g., most dinosaurs left the sea]   
Gut reactions?   OOFS   
Bed intruders   WEEDS [thought it was a person's bed for sleeping]   
Pod opener?   TRI-   
Sumac from Peru   YMA [if you've ever heard her you'd know she was poison Sumac]   
Explosion sources   HOTHEADS   
Farce set in a sandwich shop?   RYE COMEDY [except farces are the opposite of rye --- "skits" would be better than "farce"]   
Juan's first lady   EVA [not only Peron, but the generic Spaniard's first lady would be EVA, our Eve]   
His, to Henri   SES [in sociology and in education "socio-economic status" is routinely referred to as SES]   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
