Sliced bread never struck me as news. Frankly, I'd presumed that "greatest thing since" trope to be satiric.

Uncorked: It's good to try out intimidating wines

posted: 01/27/2016 1:49 a.m. Discuss

When you walk the long aisles of a wine store, you've probably had moments of discouragement. This discouragement is not because of an inadequate or perplexing selection of wines but from the mundane feeling you experience reading the same labels one after another -- cabernet, cabernet, merlot, merlot, chardonnay, chardonnay. Of course every once in a while an unfamiliar grape is in front of you and for a split second you consider the exploration but are quickly drawn back to the familiar bottle descriptions of cabernet... cabernet ... cabernet.

In this chili, chipotle in adobo and a slow cooker team up to turn juicy and moist boneless, skinless chicken thighs into a somewhat spicy and couldn't-be-easier chili. I often make chili with ground chicken or turkey, which we all love, but it was nice to change it up with real cubes of chicken. This one is a definite weeknight keeper.

Happy birthday. You are what you believe yourself to be, also what your loved ones, colleagues and others believe you to be. It's not that you're wishy-washy; you're quite the opposite.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: We've been married for five years, and my husband and I still can't agree on what church to go to. We grew up in different denominations and neither of us wants to change, but as our children get older I know we need to decide where we'll take them to church. How can we settle this?
