A few weeks ago I received a package. The package itself was as plain as packages go but the contents brought a huge smile to my face! Silicon baking moulds from the good people at Silikomart

Now that I have my Sweet Spice Mix ready, it's time I baked something!

Baklava is, off course, available all year round in Greece but for me it is definitely a Christmas treat. All its ingredients scream Christmas from afar... walnuts, honey, cinnamon...I just love it! It doesn't feel like Christmas if there isn't even one small tray of baklava in the house. It's like Christmas Eve without listening to Christmas songs.

The holiday season is upon us. I am sure you are gearing up for it. Thinking about guest lists and menus, shopping for gifts and ingredients for your festive creations. I like this rush of planning and organising. It can be daunting and stressful at times but I as soon as I think about the wonderful time we are bound to have with friends and family I forget all about it.

Pumpkin & Clementine Soup / Σούπα με Κολοκύθα και Μανταρίνι

I woke up this morning with "Let it Snow" playing in my head.
You know the song, it goes like this...
"Oh the weather outside is frightful..
 But the fire is so delightful"
Well, the weather outside is definitely not frightful.

It's been three months since our move from Zagreb to Athens.

The mere fact that I have been counting the months and know exactly how many have passed since we left is a testament to the fact that things are not as easy as I thought they would be.

I love online cooking groups. I've said so many times before. From the first one I joined almost immediately after I started this blog, the French Fridays with Dorie group, to the newest one I joined just a couple months ago.

Make your own Gluten Free Flour Mix / Μείγμα Αλευριού χωρίς Γλουτένη

Monday, November 17, 2014

A few years ago, George and I decided to remove gluten from our diet. It was a big decision that really changed the way I cook and eat. I had to make everything from scratch and train myself in using gluten free ingredients. Bread, granola, cakes, cookies, I stopped buying them altogether. I shed quite a few kilos and saved a fair amount of money, which I ended up spending buying a lot of very informative books full of gluten free recipes and many different kinds of gluten free flours.
