Homemade Frozen Yogurt

Homemade frozen yogurt

My favorite dessert for summer (and not only) is frozen yogurt. Because it’s a bit difficult to find tasty frozen yogurt and if you find it is usually quite expensive, I started looking for recipes. I was looking for something easy (of course) and healthy (as much as possible, otherwise I would eat carrots, not ice cream). And I found in pandespani.gr (very interesting cooking blog) this recipe that I will show you below. Easy, delicious and healthy! Read More

Pancakes with Nutella, Peanut Butter and Fresh Red Berries

Pancakes

Hello! I intended to write a special pancakes recipe. Something like oats-pancakes, maybe with banana, or filled with Nutella. (I have tried all of these!).

Chocolate Charlotte - Σαρλότ Σοκολάτας

I did not even realize when I became 34 years old! I remember several years ago, another woman told me that she was 32 years old and my reaction was: “Wow! You look so young! “. How distant this age seemed to us in our student years? Now, I happened to hear the same cue from a much younger woman. I have to comment on the following. First of all, I believe that I really look like a 34-year-old woman. Not because of my first wrinkles! Someone’s age is shown in the way he/she moves, speaks and deals with the situations around. And if I do not manage always to behave mature, at least I try to. Read More

Mulled Wine with Spices

It is so cold! Let me treat you a mulled wine! The first time I tried mulled wine was several years ago in a traditional cafe in my hometown Drama in Greece.
