Summer River Festival

I'm at my hometown for a couple of days. I'm always happy to be here and pass time with my parents and my childhood best friends. Every summer a little-5days-riverfest takes place, where we [i mean me and my friends] have the opportunity to celebrate with live music, theater, lots of beers, DJ's, junk food etc. It was awesome for us to hang out with lovely people and have fun near the beauty of the river [called Ardas]!

I apologize for not taking any daylight photo to show you the beautiful landscape.

Cool Pancakes

HELLO! How are you my ladies and gents?

 Today I prepared for you [actually.. for me and my bf] a fluffy-cool-yummy-delicious dessert
One of the reasons that I love blogging is that makes me attempt new recipes. And for me, pancakes and other -like jam- are new!

I have organized my summer vacations in August, because me and Harry have to finish our final project for Uni. As I told you is a bit hard to live in a greek city in the heart of summer, but the sales season make it more easy for me! So, almost every day, I'm taking a walk through the stores to find the best opportunities for me. 

Let's go back to pancakes now! You need just 15 minutes from your day time to try this and believe me    it's worth your time. 
  All you need is:


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • cooking spray

Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to "sour".

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into "soured" milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

  • You can watch the recipe here.

I choose for the top a frozen greek yogurt with honey and nuts, cherries and dark chocolate. The extra honey on the top of the top mean the end of photo shooting because Harry couldn't wait anymore to taste it!

Wish you all a wonderful day and I'm waiting to hearing from you!

Summer Edition

 Hello, hello!
How are you my lovely readers and other visitors? I'm in a super mood because my exam period has finished and my results was the best I could wait!
So, for now on I'm in holidays!!!
These days, the weather here in Greece is very hot [I'm talking about 40°C/ 104 degrees Fahrenheit] and life in town is very difficult and unlivable. So, we decided to pass the weekend over the seaside [and that's the reason of my absence]  and I think we did the best we could, cause we had an amazing time at the camping with our friends.
Here are couple of photos -via instagram and cam- I took these days at camping and town. Enjoy the deep blue of sea and sky and some random pics!

The last photo is a small preview of my new bracelet made by me and I'm going to post about very soon! What you think ladies?

Homemade Energy Bars

 Hello my friends! How you doin'?
 One more little post for today. A very quick recipe I made with my apricot jam!
Bars is a full of energy meal and  a terrific option for athletes or for students as well. So they given me energy for my daily study and they are a healthy snack for my boys [my brother and Harry].
Oh I said study -I have good news for me!- Just one more lesson separates me from the end of the exam period and summer!!!

1-1/2 cup Flour
1-1/2 cup Oats
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1-3/4 stick Salted Butte [cut into pieces]
1 jar Apricot Jam

Preheat your oven to 180 °C (350 degree Fahrenheit).

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the jam.
Press half of the oat mixture into the bottom of the pan, and spread the apricot preserves on top. Then sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture over the preserves and pat lightly.

Bake for 30–40 minutes or until the bars are lightly browned.
Allow them to cool completely before cutting!


Try it and Bon appétit!
