    The new Hellenic Temples

    This is fascinating. Are the temples modern, or are the practices still continuing into the modern day? I had no idea this was something that was going on ... it's intriguing! Hopefully someone will chime in who knows a bit more. I've never visited these places, but am thinking I want to add it...

    Gather around to make Christopsomo this Christmas! (Greek Christmas bread)

    I have never made this bread, but I do enjoy eating it. It tastes a bit like tsoureki to me, but that could be because of the spice used? I am not all that confident in my bread-making skills, so I am nervous to try making it, but this recipe does look pretty straightforward. It looks delicious...
