If you're tired of the gloomy, gray weather, shake off the blues with Zagat Houston's list of soups by Marcy de Luna. The duck soup at Huynh and the oyster and fennel stew at Liberty Kitchen and Oysterette are particularly inspiring choices.

Kim at Adventures In a New-ish City is as sick of the cold as we are, but fortunately made it out to Fat Cat Creamery when it was warmer two weekends ago. She loves the ice creams, including a soft serve so smooth that she thought it was frozen yogurt. By the way, Kim is offering a chance to win two tickets to Menu of Menus on March 31! Check out the link ASAP. The contest ends this Thursday!

It's been far too long since we checked on Chili Bob's blog and were happy to find a new post on a Filipino place called Arny's Bakery located at 9601 South Gessner at Bissonnet. The post is an educational pastry showcase that delves a bit into the origins of the cross-cultural sweets.

CorkScrew BBQ in Spring has made quite a name for itself, but it looks like they have a little competition in the area now. On the other hand, considering the number of people who line up every day, having another place is probably a good thing!

Daniel Vaughn of Texas Monthly's TMBBQ blog writes about his visit to BBQ Godfather at 1810 Rayford this past weekend and really likes the brisket. Pit master Tony Faour uses a three-stage rub to create a crust that's smoky, salty and a little spicy all at the same time.

The Houston Fed blog has a great roundup of several dining experiences they had during February, including their favorite dish of the month, which can be found at Coltivare. Other visits included Pax Americana (which didn't go as well as they hoped), Fat Cat Creamery, Fu Fu Café, CorkScrew BBQ and and Roegels Barbecue Co. These people know how to live.

That's it for this week. If you have or know of a Houston blog that you think should be featured here, leave a note in the comments or send us an email!
