Finding the Passion…

I haven’t written for the blog in a long time, or managed to do the challenge. I have finally mustered up the courage to write an entry.

I still haven’t done the challenge, and here is why.

Saj Bread Cheese Rolls

Everyone who has had the chance to try Lebanese mezzeh, has certainly come across cheese rolls. I don’t know what it is that I like about rolls, whether it was spring rolls, cheese rolls, grape leaves… Maybe it is the fact that it is a little like a surprise and that you won’t find out what is there till you actually try them.

It was a really hot summer here in Lebanon, temperature climbed to incredible heights and humidity was not a bad competitor either. You don’t believe me? You can ask my T-B Clint. Yes one of my Taste-Buds visited me actually! How cool is that! We can officially scratch the part that says we all never met. It was such a nice experience to meet a long time friend and a recent co-author. You can of course guess that a lot of food was included in the trip. After all this is Lebanon, where most revolves around food, and we are two food bloggers. We did the regular sightseeing too but this post is mostly gonna be about food!
