It’s that time (for pizza) again!

Greetings from London! I know it’s been a while; did you miss me? I certainly did my friends, as well as writing on this little blog of mine that I once decided to create in order to show my love of food. Just as a refresher, when I was living in Athens in 2016, I…

Autumn feel

It is the 4th October and the weather is turning colder, the tree leaves turn brown and start falling and the pumpkin and soup recipes are on the weekly menu. With the exception of the cold weather and brown leaves that are not yet falling in Greece, I am writing today about a great blog…

Long time no…

…recipe, no blog post, no news update! A few things have happened nevertheless, and new journeys have been noted. Maybe not so much physically but the mental journey and development of the last year for me has definitely helped me with my goals. They say you have to go through hardship to discover what is really…

Birthday celebrations!

Hurray! It was my birthday on the 28th May! What does that mean? I get to be spoilt rotten by my partner and receive heart warming wishes from my friends. That makes my heart grow so big!  I’m not into it so much for the presents unless I have hinted I want something specific and a…

Destination~Street art!

Yula’s Destinations goes for a walk amongst the Athenian streets. I have gathered some graffiti and other little quotes from creative souls out there and want to share them with you. I love the uniqueness of each one; I wonder what each person who created them had in mind when they did it. Their images give the concrete…

Recipe: Mango and banana cake

Hello my dear ones! As promised, here is my version of a cake that combines the classic banana loaf with an exotic fruit. Below you will find a recipe for a wholemeal Banana and Mango cake, inspired by GreenCilantro blog. Before you start make sure you have all the ingredients at hand. It is much easier…

Home cooking is the best!

After having beautiful dishes at my mom’s kitchen I decided I will try to cook more of what I know but I am looking for new flavours to try. Have been going through Instagram like crazy, getting overwhelmed with the amount of people who, just like me, love food. So many ideas and recipes to choose…

Home is where the heart is

One of my favourite things to do when I am back home is go the beach. I visit the seaside and sit on the beach to relax, think and admire the scenery. I love the sea. The ocean is such a mysterious place full of secrets; an undiscovered world of blue. While being in Athens, discovering…

Homemade sweet Easter biscuits

My mum calculates this recipe in water glasses thus the ingredients are slightly adjusted. The important thing here is the flour, which you need a whole kilo of so fear not. The consistency you are looking for is sticky dough to be able to mold into round or braid shapes, but keep adding flour in case…

Home, sweet home!

One of the biggest holidays in Greece is Easter and there are a lot of customs and traditions people like to follow, as it keeps the history alive but I think it is also a great way for families to spend time together. This year I traveled back home to celebrate Easter at my hometown Preveza, a…

Where is Nancy? I need to congratulate her on Serbetospito!

The other day, when I was feeling constrained from sitting on my laptop for hours waiting for responses to my job applications, I decided I was going to go out for a walk. I have not had the chance to learn about the city of Athens all that much and the weather was gorgeous anyway, so why…

Yia hara!

As you set out for Ithaka
hope the voyage is a long one,
full of adventure, full of discovery.
