There are many of you travelling over to Europe this year and some of you are first timers, which can be a little scary and overwhelming to say the least.
Being raised in a Greek home surrounded by delicious Greek bakes, I'm always on the hunt for different ideas for putting my twist on these classic old favourites.
I have chosen five of my favourite Greek bakes to put a twist on each of them.
Favourite Greek Bake No. 1 – Bougatsa
Hands up if you love to learn? I have two hands up and both my feet! I love learning - in fact, after homeschooling my daughters for a mere 20 years - you're welcome and thank you - I set out to make my way back into the working world and enrolled into TAFE to complete the Early Childhood Diploma. I wasn't sure what I should do - so much had changed since I was in the work place before having kids and I figured if I do something that is familiar to me I should succeed and somehow give me the confidence to keep moving forward. Well, I did succeed and went onto University and commenced my Bachelor of Early Childhood/Primary Teaching.
We were excited to be going back to Crete. We had been there 15 years earlier and had great memories of our time there with our three daughters. It was a place that had been untouched by the tourist industry and we had great expectations of an off the beaten track experience.
But were we in for a surprise!
Well, it's been quite a few weeks (we were on the west coast of the Peloponnese pictured above) since I last blogged...a thousand apologies for my laziness! Actually, my laptop was playing up in Greece so I only managed to get one blog up...and then on our return home..we hit the pavement running!
