Joanna McQuillan Weeks: Cheese balls deserve more respect
Somehow, the cheese ball fell out of favor, joining others on the hors d'oeuvre equivalent of the Island of Misfit Toys. Remember Vienna sausages wrapped in pastry dough to make pigs in blankets? How about sliced kielbasa swimming in a sauce made of ketchup and grape jelly? And then there was the block of cream cheese doused with hot pepper jelly.

Nutrition News: Weight loss that works
Researchers from The Miriam Hospital have published one of the first studies of its kind to follow weight loss maintenance for individuals over a 10-year period. The results show that maintenance of long-term weight loss is possible if individuals adhere to key health behaviors. The study, published in the January 2014 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, followed nearly 3,000 participants in a 10-year observational study of self-reported weight loss and behavior changes. Lead author J. Graham Thomas followed participants who had lost at least 30 pounds and had kept if off for at least one year when they were enrolled in the National Weight Control Registry.

Kitchen Call: A vacation from the holidays
I'm cooking plain and easy this week. Chicken rice soup, steamed vegetables, maybe soft scrambled eggs. I need a digestive rest after an onslaught of foods that don't visit my kitchen on an everyday basis. The problem is not the food, all totally delicious, but the scheduling, day after day, sometimes all in one day. Sushi. Curry. Siracha sauce. The pizza delivery guy at midnight. Gluten-free vs. whole grain. Vegetarian vs. vegan. (Those last requiring some refereeing.) As soon as the kids fly in from their far-flung corners of the world, their tastes rule.
