BROWN REVIVAL I love to snack around the house. When I was younger, my snacks consisted of chips, chips, chips. Then I leveled up to chocolates and cakes. This time around, being not young and all anymore, I need to monitor my health and one way of doing so is watching what I'm eating. Earlier today, I tore into these moist-crisp strips of banana which I soaked on brown sugar -- a typical Filipino merienda (afternoon snack).
