Believe it or not, there’s still a few winter constellations, most notably Gemini the twins and Auriga the charioteer hanging out in the western evening Shamokin sky. Sharing that part of the heavens right now are the bright planets Venus and Mercury. They’re still putting on a great show in…
You’ve chosen your wine for the evening; now it’s time to open it. If your bottle has a screw cap, twist and pour. Bonus! You get your first sip a few seconds earlier. If you have a traditional cork closure, take your wine key — that souvenir you bought at a winery — and use its small blade …

Of all the ingredients that have been on and off grocery store shelves and in and out of online inventory, yeast seems to be one of the more elusive. Those of us who are not invested in sourdough rely on commercial yeast any time we want to make a risen dough. Such a small ingredient, but su…

Dear Abby: My parents have strong opinions. I don’t agree with them in areas such as how to raise or discipline my children. If I try to explain why, they mock me with their tone of voice. Then they get mad if I try to discuss it with them and won’t speak to me for a couple of weeks.
Dear Abby: I love your column. Some years ago, you printed a recipe for baked beans. I believe they were called St. James’ Baked Beans. I have lost my copy. I would get lots of compliments about how great they were at family gatherings and potlucks. Would you please reprint the recipe? — Shi…
