If your family is anything like mine, then you’re slowly becoming less and less scared of a third World War. Full-on nuclear warfare visits your house every night at that terrifying question: “What are we having for dinner?” I feel like the older my kids get, the more and more impossible it is to find a dish everyone loves (or can even agree to eat). So I was shocked to discover that everyone, I mean everyone, loves Creamy Peanut Thai Noodles. If dinner time is a war, this recipe for Creamy Peanut Thai Noodles is the peace treaty. And...
