Dear Abby | Friend with benefits turns out to be a disappointment

Dear Abby: I have known this guy “Noah” for six years. We’re mostly just friends with benefits, but I’ve always had deeper feelings for him. I always wanted to see where things could go between us, so I mentioned it to him. He told me that if he didn’t already have a girlfriend, he would have dated me. So when they broke up, I waited patiently.

Cooking with kids: Making mac and cheese from scratch

If your household includes children, you likely lost count long ago of the number of bowls of macaroni and cheese you’ve made, ordered at restaurants, microwaved or poured out of a box. As if by some collective agreement, the stuff becomes locked into our food psyches from an absurdly early age, the very definition of comfort food.

Flute glasses are pretty, but they’re ruining your Champagne

I gave up the flute years ago. It was a pretty easy decision to make, since I was seeing so many other people giving it up. They were drinking sparkling wine from — brace yourself — regular wine glasses. And it was awesome.

Wine of the Week

Something salty and sweet, with a little heat and meat

You might have enjoyed a dish like this with similar components, but this one has the edge in the all-important flavor category. The rice cooks in coconut milk — the thin kind you drink, not the one that’s thick and canned and more caloric.

In the Garden | Overlooked hellebore will brighten your spring

Flowers this spring will be doubly appreciated after this long, cold winter; even the often overlooked hellebores. They’re sort of the odd-balls of late winter into spring — in quiet colors of soft green, white or purple — opposite the flashy oranges, reds and yellows of daffodils, tulips and more familiar signs announcing spring.

Food blogger takes vegan food to a new level

FRESNO, Calif. — It took just one documentary about animal agriculture to convince Ashley Hankins-Marchetti to become vegan. The documentary, “Cowspiracy,” raises the argument that livestock are harmful to the environment. Although there is still a lot of debate over the issue, Hankins-Marchetti’s mind was made up. No more meat for her.

Dear Abby | Couple’s wedding can wait until fiance finds a decent job

Dear Abby: My fiance and I have been engaged for two years. Our wedding is set for a year from now. I’m thinking about calling off our wedding, not because I don’t love him, or because I don’t want to spend the rest of my life with him. I know I want that. It’s because I’m the only one with a decent job. He has a job, but doesn’t earn enough to support us.
