This post is participating in Williams-Sonoma’s Smoothie Week. The theme is “Not Your Typical Smoothie.”
Persimmons are funny little fruits. They are red or deep orange on the outside and look like tomatoes or even tiny pumpkins.

Have you met Gnudi? Do you know what it is? Do you know that when you meet and eat it you will never want to go back to a gnudi-less life? I never forget the first time I experience the taste of something new. The subtle apprehension and eagerness before the first bite

How long have I had this blog? Two, three years? I still don't know how to schedule a post! Because this post was supposed to be published last week, just in time for Christmas so that it might give you an idea for a homemade gift to bring to your holiday gatherings.

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.

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.
