And I horribly missed them when I went low-carb.

(I still do low carb, but not as religious as I did the past year. Sometimes, I need food that makes me really smile.  And OCCASIONALLY, I treat myself to my cravings.)

Yesterday, I was badly craving for Korean Savory Pancakes.

(Other days I crave for ramen or porkbelly or Soju or tteokbokki.) or kimchi).
