Chocolate Croissants [Brunch edition]

Hello my fellow travellers,

Hosting a brunch sounds easy but menu planning is a bit more difficult. You want to serve foods that are perfect for either lunch or breakfast. Generally brunch items consist of muffins, quiches, croissants, and other light foods. Instead of heading to the store to pick up a box of croissants, why not make your own homemade version for half the price?

Hummus with Olive Turkish Bread [Brunch Edition]

Hello my fellow travellers,

As a part of the brunch series, I’m looking at different foods you can serve that are a bit different than the regular quiche or muffins. Hummus is perfect for such an occasion along with a nice, soft loaf of Olive Turkish bread (bought from Cobs Bakery). The hummus is a great dip for the bread. If you can’t find Turkish bread in your locale, you can either make it at home or find bread from a bakery that is soft, aerated, and slightly chewy in texture. Bakers are your friends, ask them to help you find something similar to Turkish bread.

Yummiest Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER! [Grain free/Gluten free]

Hello my fellow travellers,

Rarely do I make such grandiose claims about a certain food being the ‘yummiest’ but I have to admit, these grain free chocolate cookies that I tried are possibly the best I’ve had (and I’m saying this from the perspective of trying most flour based recipes out there in the cookieverse). These are soft but chewy, chocolatey, and actually pretty healthy (Well if you eat them in moderation. I ate 5 in one day. Woops.)
