Houston Wok: David checks out the grand opening of the new Kim Son Cafe at Eldridge and Briar Forest, and finds Thai / Vietnamese / pan-Asian food so good it makes his "taste buds climax." We need to get over there, immediately.
29-95: John Hook takes a look at sushi from a decidedly different point of view than most reviewers -- an ethical one -- and finds that it's possible to get exotic sushi that's both scrumptious and sustainable.
Dirty Kitchen Adventures: Been looking for something a little different to bake for dessert? Try this dense and beautiful blood orange pound cake. Jen did, and she's got pointers on further improving the recipe.
Hummingbird Tongues: While we're sad that Rachael hasn't updated her blog in a while, these absolutely gorgeous photos of her Christmas meal are keeping us satiated. For now.
Blue State Carpetbagger: We always enjoy Tom's wine recommendations, especially when they're as delicious-sounding as this $21 Zinfandel. "A terrific mouthful"? We're sold.
Blue Jean Gourmet: Finally, in preparation for the upcoming Superbowl, Nishta has put together a list of simple, no-fail party favorites if you're feeling stumped in the cooking or creativity department.
