It’s been a while since my last post and I just wanted to keep you updated as I will continue my break indefinitely, until I am ready to come back. I hope that you have missed me as much as I have missed all of you.
I am really sorry I haven’t been visiting your blogs but it’s been very hot and unbearable to stay inside.
On the other hand, I’ve been making a few changes in my lifestyle. I have visited a dietitian so I am on a proper diet now and although I cook almost every day, I am eating healthy food, which has already been posted on the blog. Although I have lots of older recipes which I can post, however, I don’t want to be tempted by reading recipes all day. I have been walking an hour a day and most of the mornings we go for swimming, I relax more, spend more time with my family, watch T.V., go out more often, so even if I wanted to, there isn’t much free time left.
The great news is that I have already lost 8 kilos but there is still a long way to go until I reach my goal.
We have not been on vacation this year but hope to get away for a few days in August.
It’s been ages since I last made a dessert, but since we shall be going to Nafplion tomorrow, I have prepared a new recipe called Tsipopita, which will be given away to our contractor and I would like to share it with you. The house is almost ready and hopefully we shall be relocating sometime between September or October.
Tsipopita is a traditional Cypriot dessert (pita) made with home made phyllo and tsipa, which is the name of the butter used.
This pita is traditionally made with layers of homemade phyllo which are brushed with tsipa and then ground cinnamon and cloves are sprinkled between each layer of phyllo. It is then rolled, baked and drenched in an armatic sugar syrup.
It is something between baklavas and daktyla and hope you will enjoy it! You can find the recipe here
Kopiaste and Kali Orexi!
