Dear Abby | Wife’s job at the gym has husband in a sweat

Dear Abby: My wife and I have been married for almost 11 years and have three children. About four years ago my wife cheated on me and left. After a six-week split, we decided we wanted to work things out. Everything was great — until recently, when she got a job working at a busy gym.

Decades later, birth moms begin to heal

MINNEAPOLIS — Louise Gardner is thankful to her father for his compassion. Molly Hursh is thankful that her son, at 50, “is so open and loving.” Karen Gillespie is thankful that she can “put a light on for other people.”

Gifting 101: Score big with these do’s and don’ts

Dear Abby | Man drains family savings to fund failing enterprise

Dear Abby: My husband of 23 years, "Gerald," quit his job to start his own law firm. He told me about it only after he had quit. I have tried to be supportive, but seven months down the line, he has spent all our "rainy day" cash and earned only one paycheck. We have two teenagers, one who will be going to college in a year.

How to make the best waffles

We all know that superlatives have lost whatever meaning they ever had (thanks, internet!). But we can also all agree that waffles are one of the reasons it’s good to be alive. And I’m prepared to stand behind the assertion that the recipe here produces the world’s best waffles.

Butterscotch pie, always second fiddle, is a secret crowd pleaser

Recently, over wedges of homemade pie, my sisters shared that they love butterscotch. Turns out the nieces do too. Then, my father, a self-confessed chocoholic, capitulated. We spoke of butterscotch sundaes, candies, warm sauce, boxed pudding and restaurant desserts layered in fancy glasses. Mom mentioned Thanksgiving pie, and the deal was sealed. Butterscotch. Pie. Done.
