On New Year's Day, there's one comfort food that could be your magical hangover remedy, according to chef Anthony Lamas.
"If you're cold, you're hung over, you've had a long night, posole is that Latino cure for you in a bowl," he says.
That's right â€” don't head to the medicine cabinet, head directly to the stove and a simmering pot of posole, a traditional hominy stew from Mexico, says Lamas, the owner of the restaurant Seviche in Louisville, Ky.

More than 360 African health workers died of Ebola this year. Some of them made headlines around the world, such as Dr. Umar Sheik Khan, the Sierra Leonean physician who treated more than 100 Ebola patients before contracting the disease himself.

As a boy, Daniel Majook Gai fled the civil war in Sudan, running miles by himself to safety and leaving his family behind. He was one of the so-called Lost Boys â€” a name given to children separated from their families during that conflict.
After years in refugee camps in Kenya and Ethiopia, Gai landed in the United States, reunited with his family and got an education. In 2011, he returned home to the newly independent country of South Sudan.
But war came back in 2013 and split the new nation.
