Inspirations From Bakery 164

Whenever we go out for a day trip walk or hiking in the countryside, these are the secret energy we use half-way through the walk when we sit down to enjoy the scenery and get ready for the half-way back.

I still have to go back, have...

Brazilian Authentic Feijoada

Feijoada is black beans stew with smoked sausages, ribs, bacon and beef which takes a full day to prepare, normally eating over the weekend and when friends gather together and spend the time talking, cooking, drinking and eating.
