In my previous post where I made Greek yoghurt for the first time, I told you that the first time I made it, it did not set as it should and it looked more like a cream rather than a yoghurt. It still tasted like yoghurt but what was I supposed to do with it?  […]

Tiramisu used to be one of my favourite desserts and although I used to make it often in the past, after the bird flu, I stopped making it because of the raw eggs used in this dessert.  While in Rome, we were offered tiramisu a couple of times, as part of the menu and remembered […]
