Oh my, how quickly the years go by… My little blog now celebrates its 5th anniversary today, and as I always say, I couldn’t be more excited about it. We wanted to do something bigger for the anniversary post, but plans didn’t go as we wanted, so our “celebrations” are really low-key this year. But if everything has gone according to plan, you must be seeing the new (and hopefully improved!) Do You Speak Gossip? since T. and I had been working on a redesign for 2016. We didn’t change much, since we wanted something fresh, but still practical for both you and me. So we tweaked the old theme a bit, and we really hope you like the changes we made (they’re mostly done to the homepage of the site).
Good morning to all! I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Valentine’s Day! I know not all you like and celebrate this day, but to those of you who do, I hope you have an amazing day with your love. As for me, nothing says I love you like food – typical Taurus – (ok, and maybe shoes too!), and in this case, cupcakes. Home-made, fluffy, red velvet cupcakes…Here are some photos of the ones I made, which I’m gonna share with my family and my love.
The second day in London was much busier for us than the first one. So busy, that it was very difficult for me to choose the photos for this post, and almost impossible to limit them down to a smaller number. So once again be prepared to see many photos from day 2 of my trip to London. There will be captions under the photos to explain what you’ll be looking at.
The second day included: Notting Hill (Portobello Road), Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and China town, with coffee and food breaks among them. I hope you enjoy looking at the photos we took.
Hello sweeties! How was your week? It’s Friday today, and I’m really excited, cause we’re almost 1 week away from my little Blog’s first anniversary, which gives me great pleasure. I may have a surprise for you, but you will have to stay tuned to find out, so follow this blog any way you like! I would be grateful.
I’m also really excited to finally have the holiday photos ready for you, as I promised on my previous posts! As many of you may already expect, there are mostly food pictures, a few gifts, decorations and some miscellaneous stuff. But those of you who follow my blog for a long time, know how much I love cooking and baking. So let’s get started!
Every year around Christmas, for the last 5-6 years, it has become a tradition for me to make Christmas treats. It may have taken me a little bit longer this year due to the problem I had with my oven, but I finally made them. My close relatives and friends know by now that they should expect a big platter of my homemade melomakarona as a gift. Melomakarona are a traditional dessert of Greek cuisine, prepared primarily during the Christmas holiday season. They can be generally described as “Christmas cookies soaked in syrup of diluted honey (méli in Greek) and then sprinkled with crushed walnuts” (source).
