Who doesn't love a warm, fresh croissant right out of the oven? Some may say it's the best thing to come out of France.

Maybe you've seen the BuzzFeed Food piece called "21 Truly Upsetting Vintage Recipes" that has been making the Internet rounds the past few days. But I couldn't take the chance you'd miss it.

After the deep freeze the Golden Triangle has weathered since Sunday night, today's forecast near 40 degrees sounds downright balmy, doesn't it? Thank goodness that's over. When Jack Frost blows in on a polar vortex, we tend to hunker down with warm soups, chili and stews.
It's the same thing every year. We overindulge during the holidays, then make solemn (and quickly abandoned) promises to eat healthier and shed pounds in the new year.

Not up to putting on a formal dinner party for New Year's Eve? Can't blame you. And who cares? Most people would prefer the more casual atmosphere of lots of appetizer-sized nibbles, anyway.

Washoku, the traditional cuisine of Japan, is being considered for designation as part of the world's priceless cultural heritage by the U.N. this week.
