Ask your friends what "artisan bread" means and you'll get dozens of answers. To me, it just means bread made at home that tastes fantastic. It has a big, coarse crumb (in plain English, that means it has holes inside), a chewy texture, a crackling blistered crust and a deep, yeasty flavor with a hint of tang. You can bake bakery-quality bread!

This chocolate chip cookie recipe from Shirley O. Corriher is not your average rearrangement of ingredients - this is a new recipe. Toasted, buttered and salted pecans fill in for some of the flour. A touch of molasses replaces the brown sugar. The dough can be aged for up to 36 hours to improve flavor and texture. And with two cups of chocolate chips, you can't go wrong.

We'll wrap up the little desserts of Spain with pastelitos de dulce de membrillo - turnovers with quince paste and Manchego cheese.
Manchego is one of Spain's iconic cheeses. Made from sheep's milk in the La Mancha region, it has a salty tang similar to Parmesan cheese, which you could substitute in an emergency. Manchego cheese is available at cheese shops and groceries such as Whole Foods. I've also seen it at Trader Joe's.
Membrillo is a solid gel made of cooked, pureed quince. Membrillo can be found at Spain, a restaurant and deli on Glendale Boulevard in Los Angeles, and at other Latino/Hispanic/Mediterranean groceries around LA. I've also bought it Altadena Food Fair, an Armenian grocery near my house.
