If you have any Greek friends, then you have probably heard them talking about Ash Monday, a very popular public holiday in Greece. Ash Monday is a movable feast that occurs 40 days before Orthodox Easter and marks the beginning of Easter Lent.
Happy New Year! May 2015 bring everything you wish for, all the joy and happiness!
Today we are celebrating. Today is the world baking day. The 3rd Sunday of May is dedicated to baking. Isn’t this a very good reason to celebrate? As a food blogger and as a cake-lover I couldn’t be happier about the existence of such a day. But apart from that, today I have another reason […]
