Sunday Craving: Yema

Woke up this morning, and started craving for Yema. Knowing that Yema, in ball form is now hard to find, I decided to make my own. 🙂

What is “Yema”? Yema, is a custard ball that is either coated with white sugar or caramelized sugar.

Ready to roll! 🙂

I prefer my yema rolled with white sugar because of that delicate crunch. 🙂

Delos, Greece

After a pleasant walk around the town of Mykonos, my family and I hopped on a boat to go to Delos. It’s an uninhabited island near Mykonos, because the area of the island was mostly covered with historical ruins.

Ancient tile mosaics

Finally got myself a slice of the Greek version of Baklava. Nice and gooey! Mmmmm! 🙂

Sorrento, Italy

When life throws you lemons, make Limoncello.

Here are some snips from one of my favorite places in Italy…Sorrento.

In Italy, lovers usually padlock their promise of eternal love by the bars of viewing points.

The small town of Sorrento.

Apparently, the reason why these lemons are so huge, is because they’re a special hybrid of an orange and a lemon.

Enter the smaller streets of the town, and you’ll see a lot of mom-and-pop stores display bottles of their prized Limoncello. The creamy looking one is Limoncello mixed with cream. Super yummy!

I’m a sucker for strawberries. Here they have the big ones and the small ones (which are wild strawberries).

After a morning stroll in the town of Sorrento, we drove off to Positano for late lunch.

Fresh Buffalo mozzarella salad. 🙂

Vongole.

Got a free shot of Limoncello to top our meal. Yum!

On our way back to the car, my sister decided to buy this decadent flaky pastry filled with egg custard! Delicioso! 🙂 *smackslips*

That’s all for now! 🙂

Rome, Italy

When in Rome…

It was packed with other tourist! 😦 But at least my family and I were still able to see a couple of places, despite the day trip.

I couldn’t resist posing with the ray of light. Hehe.

I don’t think that this was the exact spot from Angels & Demons, but again, I just had to pose with it.

Drive-by sight seeing.

Creamy gnocchi! 🙂

First pizza from Italy.

That’s all for today! 🙂

Florence, Italy

Note to self….must find time to post more photos.

Anyway, here are a few snips from Florence, Italy. We only had one day (one of the disadvantages in cruise tours) to spend, so my and family and I were not able to see the other wonders of the city. 😦 Oh well, maybe next time. 🙂

Duomo

I always love to capture things that most people miss out on, like walls.

The heart of a little town in Florence.

Bistecca ala Florentina. Well, that’s what I remember them calling it. Hehe. Correct me if I’m wrong. 🙂

Flat noodles with pancetta, shredded butternut squash, and truffle cream sauce. 🙂 HEAVEN.

And of course, when travelling to Florence, you MUST visit the leaning tower of PISA. 🙂

 

That’s all for today! 🙂

Fathers’ Day

Belated happy fathers’ day! 🙂

So now that I’m back, I can finally post! Internet in Europe was just crazy expensive, plus I couldn’t even post using my laptop. Anyway, I will be posting some of my favorite shots soon! I’m extra excited, because school just started and I’m taking up an Illustrator & Photoshop class. So now I know how to do some of the basic stuff. Yay! 🙂

For now, today’s snips will be about the pasta dish I cooked for my Dad during Fathers’ day. Now that I kind of know Photoshop, I decided to make a step-by-step collage on how I made my dish….

I also baked apple crumble for dessert, but I’ll post about that next time. 🙂

Enjoy and take care guys!

Food Filled Week

Ate a lot of stuff this week! Ugh. I guess it’s from all the bad things that’s been stressing me out lately. 😦

White Bay pasta from Kitchen. 🙂

 

And because I love her soooo much….

 


Please pray for Jinx. She’s my boyfriend’s cat, who I love oh so much! She’s really sick, so please pray that she gets well soon. 😦

I’m hoping and praying that she’ll get better. I haven’t been this touched by an animal in a very long time. She’s a sweetheart, and one of the loves of my life. Please pray for her. 😦

God, please… 😦
