Ανεκτίμητη αξία να έχεις την ευκαιρία να αποδράσεις για λίγο από την πόλη σου, τη δουλειά σου, τη ρουτίνα σου. Να μπορείς να χαρείς την οικογένεια, τους φίλους σου, τη θάλασσα, τον καθαρό αέρα στο βουνό, ένα περίπατο στο δάσος, ένα καλό βιβλίο.

Spinach Greek Pie The Salty Biscotti Blog

I love-love-love Spinach pie!! Just a bite can make my day!! The dough, the spinach and feta, are all great ingredients individually, but when combined, the result in the mouth is simply fantastic.

I believe that the secret is in the homemade fyllo -the greek word for pie dough- that our Greek grandmothers tought us well.

So, today’s photoshoot is all about capturing the crispiness of a spinach pie piece and it’s beautiful color combination.

Have a lovely day, Anthea.

Almond Cake With Lemon Frosting

I am back at food photography. And baking. And making my family happy. They love my cakes, at least that is what I hear from them. Hoping the baby will love them too in the near future.

Staying in Athens during summer is not much of a fun, so little treats like that, are a must.

After such a long a time, I managed to bake a cake. A simple almond cake with some lemon frosting and chocolate drops on top. These kind of tastes can make my day and my family`s too. This is a far too easy recipe, appropriate for a mom of a new born baby and a toddler, with no time availiable.

Simply gather all the ingredients, put them on a mixer, bake and decorate.
