We are in Crete!!

Happy Sunday beautiful people!! I am so sorry it has been quiet on my blog due to my wonderful girls vacation in Crete, Greece. This was a very last minute trip and I couldn’t find the best wifi to blog, so I finally found an area where I could get some sort of wifi. We are now in Elounda, Crete. Very close to Agios Nikolaos, basically the very far right of the island, and close to Spinalonga. I am here with my dear friend Leilani, who is from California as well.


Those planning to travel to Crete, you must check out this amazing island.

An island where lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece had been kept in isolation until 1957, a story about love and pain, separation and fear was born. (Credit to Visit Greece for this info.)

More info on Spinalonga 

We have been enjoying the Cretan cuisine, and soaking up the sun, and sea. I won’t be going back to my village this time, but I do miss Mani. How is your Summer going? Anyone headed to Greece? What is your favorite Greek island?


I wanted to share my second interview with my favorite New York girl Ellen Karis, from the Ellen Karis Comedy show. Ellen has a podcast show in New York, and I was happy to come back on the show last week. Please do take a moment to enjoy our second interview, and all about my second cookbook and Crete. I hope you enjoy the podcast and do please check out Ellen’s website. 🙂
