    When I thumb through the pages of my past, I’m a girl again, and all the lost freshness and playfulness of adolescence is mine once more for a moment.

      I dropped Abby off at day care this morning. It’s something I do pretty much every day. It’s our time together. I love that little girl so much. There’s nothing better than being her daddy.

      Roasted loin of pork is my family’s most requested Easter main course, served either for lunch or dinner. While I love my glazed spiral honey baked ham, this dish is not only a unique take on pork, but also more economical in this crazy time of inflation we are all living through. This entrée may become your family’s favorite too.

      This easy chicken and kale soup will keep you warm on a cold and rainy day or any day that calls for a simple, hearty soup. For convenience, you can make this soup with frozen kale without the need to thaw it beforehand.

      When I was a line cook at a small restaurant in Richmond, Virginia, although my station was savory, I was often called upon to come up with desserts. At the time, my fellow chefs grumbled about having to dip into the pastry side of the kitchen, but I didn’t mind. Despite my culinary school background, I didn’t have much of a repertoire when it came to sweets, but I loved thumbing through cookbooks for inspiration, and one of the first desserts I memorized was Michel Richard’s “Le KitKat” from his 2006 cookbook “Happy in the Kitchen.”

      The three walls surrounding a bathtub take a lot of abuse, especially if the bathroom serves a house of family members who bathe daily. Those conditions call for a hard-working, durable wall surface with the ability to withstand the moisture and continued use. Solid Surface is a manufactured material, made of acrylic resin, polyester resin or a combination of the...

      Wyoming has pushed to the front of efforts to prohibit the most common type of abortion with the nation's first explicit ban on abortion pills. In many states women can now get abortion pills prescribed online and delivered to be taken at home. Increased availability has helped pill abortions now account for more than half of abortions in the U.S. Yet while many states effectively ban abortion pills by prohibiting abortion, none had taken direct aim at abortion laws before Wyoming. The bill passed alongside a new, sweeping abortion ban and observers say both measures are likely to be challenged in court.

      Tennessee’s GOP-dominant House has advanced legislation to add a narrow exemption to the state’s strict abortion ban. Monday's passage came despite concerns raised by Democrats and medical experts that the bill does not go far enough to protect doctors and pregnant patients. The legislation was drastically reworked from the original version introduced just last month after Tennessee’s influential anti-abortion lobbying group came out in opposition. The law now includes an “affirmative defense” for doctors, putting the burden on the physician to prove an abortion was medically necessary — instead of requiring the state to prove the opposite. The new bill says doctors may provide abortion services for ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages. The bill requires Senate approval.

      There’s a moment in the new PBS documentary about Dr. Anthony Fauci when someone holds up a handmade sign at a protest reading, “Dr. Fauci, You Are Killing Us.” It says something about Fauci that it’s not initially clear when that sign was waved in anger — in the 1980s as AIDS made its deadly rise or in the 2020s with COVID-19 vaccine opponents. “American Masters: Dr. Tony Fauci” offers a portrait of an infectious disease scientist who often became a lightning rod as an adviser to seven presidents. Fauci hopes it can inspire more public servants like him.

      For the first time in three decades, the U.S. has a new favorite dog breed, according to the American Kennel Club. Adorable in some eyes, deplorable in others, the sturdy, push-faced, perky-eared, world-weary-looking and distinctively droll French bulldog became the nation's most prevalent p…
