[ - ] Cooking question: I'm trying to be healthy so I purchased some organic chicken strips/tenders. Last time I cooked them they were dry and flavorless. I cooked them on the stove top with some olive oil. What's the secret to moist, flavorful chicken? Thanks. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Season with salt and pepper and saute with a few cloves of minced garlic in a bit of olive oil. Turn over. Adjust heat to low and cover. Cook for exactly 10 minutes without lifting lid. When 10 mins is up, turn off heat and let sit for 10 mins (again, do not lift lid). Perfect, moist chicken. [ Reply | More ]

Chicken tenders are made from the breast meat, which is drier than the thighs and legs. Chop the meat and try 1. A healthy chicken enchilada bake casserole. 2. Chicken corn chowder 3.

Yes, it's possible. The women on here don't want to believe it, but it happens. Look around and you will see many, many people in happy second marriages and nicely blended families. That being said, the lines he's feeding you sound more typical of a bs artist. They seem very cliche to me. Why would someone marry someone he thought as cold and crazy unless he himself has major problems? When I hear guys saying a girlfriend or wife is crazy, mean or cold, I always think it's some weird defense mechanism covering up bad behavior. I'd have more respect for this situation if he simply admitted he cannot be a good husband to her and they need to amicably move on. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] StepMIL can't wait for Thanksgiving. She thinks "her" grandkids and my kids are friends. Just found out that our 12YO DS doesn't want to the stepMILs house because his 13YO cousin is "weird". The kid is socially awkward. I don't think he does much or has many friends. This is going to suck. We've told our DS that it's just one day and bring his iPhone. I really want to stomach bug or something. 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This is an opportunity to teach your son to be kind to others, regardless of how "cool" another child appears. [ Reply | More ]

ita. Telling the kid to bring his phone to get through the "torture" of having to interact with the 13 yo is really awful. No wonder there are so many nasty kids out there. [ Reply | More ]

+1. You resent your step MIL, OK - but you can at least be kind to the children. [ Reply | More ]

Your kid is being mean. Tell him he has to be nice for one day a year and you expect him to be gracious and kind. [ Reply | More ]

Why do you let your child be a jerk? He needs to get along with people, not bring his iphone and be an ass. [ Reply | More ]

My mother made me hang out with kids that were mean on the holidays. All the while telling me how nice they were and not believing me when I said they weren't. Acknowledge your DS's feelings, but tell him he has to go and be decent to the other kid. They don't need to be friends. [ Reply | More ]

Where does it say the kid is mean? Sounds like op's kid thinks he's a nerd/dork/whatever ("socially awkward"). The mean one would seem to be the 12 yo. [ Reply | More ]

Not saying he is mean, saying it's a similar example. [ Reply | More ]

Fake tree for the past ten years. Got so tired of having to vacuum up needles and drag a real tree in and out every year. It smells like pine and gets covered with ornaments and lights anyway. [ Reply | More ]

Real. Always. We once lived in a condo that only allowed fake trees, and it just wasn't the same. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My Aunt is disabled and has collected disability for several years. She is selling her condo to live with her brother (my uncle) and his wife bc she can't afford to make the payments any more. She asked my father (her brother) for assistance and he gave her $200. My father just inherited about a million dollars from his partner and is pretty comfortable. Should add that this Aunt has no children and she was very good to me and my siblings when we were growing up. She even helped my parents by watching me when I was a baby so my mother could work. I plan on helping her out but disappointed in my father. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I know how you feel. My grandmother moved in with my aunt (divorced aunt), who supported GM for years. When GM died, she had a small estate (which she left equally to all of her 3 kids, notwithstanding that my dad didnt help much. MY mom is demanding an accounting of GMs estate (her MIL). WTF. Her "estate" was what was leftover from social security, after not paying rent for years, while aunt aid medical copays, housed her, fed her, etc. [ Reply | More ]
