DEAR HELOISE: I have a question about when a recipe calls for WINE as an ingredient. I need to know what to substitute. I don’t think you can just leave it out, as I think it is supposed to be there as an acid. I can’t find a substitute list for it in any of my cookbooks.

DEAR HELOISE: I came upon a FIGHT between three girls, and I was shocked that other witnesses were just standing around filming the fight instead of calling for help.
