Myrtos: a lovely place in Crete


This time last year I was traveling in Crete. It was an great trip I will always remember...I wanted to show every picture I've captured, but they are numerous! So I've picked one of my favorite places, Myrtos, a small village in south Crete.Take a look on the photographs, every one tells a story!

About ten days we were traveling among the half east of this beautiful island and we visited several towns, villages and many inaccessible archaeologigal sites.

 In Crete is combined of many different kinds of landscapes; you can travel from sea sites to low hills and mountains and from plains to plateau and gorges. You will meet smilling and generous people and you will  taste the most delicious mediterranean food recipes.

Myrtos is nearby Ierapetra, in the south coast of Crete. It keeps its original character, a tradional atmosphere, far away from the common touristic landscape. That's why I loved this place!

If you would like to visit or learn more about Myrtos, use this and this link. As for me, I wish to go back one day!

Recipe: Yogurt ice cream


       Last week I made a delicious homemade yogurt ice cream! It's absolutely tasteful, healthy and sooo easy to make! 

     This is the recipe:

500 grams greek yogurt (I prefer 2% fat)
150 grams powdered sugar
150 grams heavy cream (I prefer light)
Zest of one lemon or orange

Just put all the ingredients in a big bowl and mix them up well. That's it!
Then pour this in an ice cream machine. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour it in a big bowl or in some smaller bowls and keep it/them inside the freezer. Every half an hour open the freezer and mix it up again for few minutes. Do this 6 times (3 hours) in order to get ice cream more creamy texture.

Yogurt ice cream is very freshy and tastes great with fruit (like kiwi in the photos), chocolate, honey ect. I hope you will love it like I do!

TIP: To tell the truth, my freezer is too strong, so the the fisrt time I decided to taste the ice cream, I almost needed chisels and hammer to serve it... So, the next time I put the ice cream in small bowls and when I wanted to eat I just take   one of them out from the freezer and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
