As 2016 begins, we look back and reflect over the past year. A historian may recount the political events of the year. A designer may look back at style trends. But an epicurean will relive the memorable flavors, dishes and "bites" of the year.
Sit back and re-experience those aromas, tastes and textures of your favorite dishes of 2015. What new foods did you discover? What foods did you try that you would never have eaten five years ago?

As the saying goes, "Don't sweat the small stuff." Well, you don't have to sweat the holidays, either. You aren't alone if you get stressed out by just thinking about all you have to do for holiday entertaining. Remember, it's not just planning for Thanksgiving, Chanukah or Christmas dinner. It's planning for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you have out-of-town guests for the weekend.

Grilling can be an easy and fun way to cook food, but that doesn't mean your approach has to be simple. With just a little extra effort, you can add great flavor to everything you grill. Here are some delicious ways to maximize flavor as you grill.
RUBS: Spice blends that are applied directly on the surface of meats, fish and poultry. Be careful to check the salt content of the rub, so you can estimate how much to apply. The more you add, the more flavor goes on your product. Try local favorites Rick’s Ragin’ Island Jerk Rub or Todd’s Bayou Dirt.

When you see the floral baskets and bags of charcoal in the front of the store, you know that warmer weather is on the horizon. You can almost capture the fragrant aroma of spring in the air.

Just as we see a glimmer of sunshine on the horizon, we're hit with another wintry mix. When will this mess end? Haven't we done enough scraping, shoveling and salting? Can we break out the grill yet?

2015 is off to a healthy start. We all want to begin the new year with a fresh outlook, a clean slate. But when did "cleansing" become something besides using Dove and Dial? And how did kale turn into the most overused four-letter word? How much energy do we really need to start the day, beyond a good cup of coffee? How about all of the diet trends ... Paleo, South Beach, low-carb and raw? We've all seen the diet fads come and go, along with our fluctuating waistlines.
