I had my total rest this afternoon to rejuvenate from one stressful week. I was so laid back. I just downloaded and watched some series, which has been in hiatus for two weeks now. Then, hunger strikes me and searched our kitchen for possible afternoon snack. To no avail, I found none.

Cong you bing or Chinese scallion pancake is a savory, non-leaven bread made by folding chopped scallions in dough, flattening it and pan grilled until golden brown. I haven’t taste an authentic cong you bing and my first encounter with this was when watching Exploring China in Youtube. It seems simple to do with little ingredients and with no special procedure needed. Simply mix water with flour and knead. Fold in the scallion and pan grilled and that’s it.

Kare-kare is a Filipino dish originated from the culinary capital of the Philippines, Pampanga. It is made with fork tender meat and vegetables swimming in a vibrant orange colored peanut sauce. It lacks the saltiness of a usual dish and always accompanied by sauteed bagoong or fermented shrimp paste. Combine the rice, a piece of the kare-kare dish and a pinch of bagoong will keep you ask for more. You'll have a taste of the natural flavor of the meat, the creamy peanut sauce and that pinch of bagoong binds all that flavor together in to one savory dish.

Okay! I know I did a cinnamon roll recipe last week and you must be asking "Cinnamon Bread again?". But hey, I can't get enough with this luscious piece of bread. The lingering taste of brown sugar and cinnamon that explodes like an orchestra of flavor in my mouth is so addicting. So, I decided to bake another round of cinnamon bread, but this time I added some chopped dates. I wish I added more dates to this bread.

Who couldn't resist the sweet cinnamon aroma of cinnamon rolls? By just mere smelling those freshly baked goods it’s as if I’m already eating one on my hand. It smells therapeutic and taste divine.

I've been doing cookies before and I'm used to the small crunchy type of cookies inspired by the oatmeal cookies of Sagada. Baking something chewy is new to me and I know my father is longing for a chewy type of cookies because of his weak teeth.

Artisan Bread. I have always read about artisan bread, artisan chocolate and so many artisan food thing in the web. According to what I have read, there is no solid definition of the word "artisan" but it means time, dedication and attention given on how the food was prepared and done.
