Dear Abby | Daughters blame mom’s fiancé for breaking up her marriage

Dear Abby: My fiancée and I plan to be married next year. I met her after she left her husband because he had cheated on her twice. She refuses to tell her daughters that she left their dad because he cheated, so I am doomed to be the "bad guy" for eternity. They think I'm "the man who stole Mama from Daddy." Her youngest (age 25) thinks I'm the devil incarnate and is unbelievably rude to me, no matter who is around. I'm thinking marriage will be hell because she and her ...

For the unborn and the undocumented: Shine Your Light!

The past month has been full of paradoxes as many of us cheer a leadership that supports the unborn, yet decry the same leadership in their treatment of the refugee and the undocumented. In our media-saturated world, we are led to expect that the unborn belong in one public policy universe while the undocumented belong in another.

Beyond ear buds and eyerolls: Nine ways to make travel with your teen fun

The low point of the trip wasn’t when my husband, Andrew, and I hiked into the Grand Canyon without our teens, because Solomon and Celia opted to stay behind in our tiny cabin. As insane as it seemed for them to miss their chance to explore the most spectacular natural phenomenon our country has to offer, that morning, we chose to let it go.

A nutritious makeover: Cascade School District lunches see healthy changes

There are 180 school days every year, and each of those days includes lunch. Growing kids love lunch, because they’re usually famished and also crave time to hang out with their friends. But just as important, these 180 lunch periods are an opportunity to feed children nutritious and delicious food and teach them about making good food choices for themselves.

Dear Abby | Daughter’s identity as asexual is not welcomed by her mom

Dear Abby: I have recently started disclosing to close friends and family that I am asexual (someone who experiences no sexual attraction to any person). For the most part they have been supportive, but my mother and one of my friends are having trouble accepting it. I have told them I do not want children and that I am repulsed by the thought of sexual intercourse, but my mother acts like if I don’t have children, I won’t be as welcome. She even suggested that I could marry a gay ...

My simple sauce tops it all

The best way I've found to improve upon dinner has nothing to do with butter. It doesn't involve a generous glug of cream, or even a few slabs of bacon. The secret recipe that has transformed so many of my meals from dull to exciting is so unassuming that you probably have it stashed in your refrigerator right now.

Craving Chinese takeout? Make this easy, stir-fried noodle dish at home

Today, I want to share a recipe that I crave when I'm sick with a cold. When my sinuses are stuffed and my body aches, I crave Chinese food. I'm not talking about excellent renditions of Cantonese, Szechuan or Taiwanese cuisines that you might find at any number of excellent Chinese restaurants.
