Such sweet...sorrow :-)


Well Easter is officially over for us here. Great time with family and A LOT of eating and drinking (as usual :-). The only thing we have to get used to now...going back to work lol

The above is a picture of my favorite Greek delight-/dessert. Fruit boiled in water and sugar (in this case orange and fig). The recipe is a bit more complicated than that but the bottom line...it is the perfect, light dessert. Good for the stomach (after a huge meal), good for a diet (no fat-just fruit and sugar), good for...everything (well it's sweet, what more can I say lol)

Have a SWEET day and week! I leave you with one of my favorite scenes from the movie 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'. It shows a 'normal' Easter day for us (the food and the amount of relatives gathered in a house to celebrate!). Have you had days like that? Enjoy :-)

Peace and love
xoxo
