I am back with a Greek travel post from the beautiful island of Crete! I spent 12 glorious days soaking up the sunshine in Crete. This was my first time travelling to Crete and as always, had so much to explore!

Time for tea and Victoria Sponge Cake

Is it time for tea? Oh I do love a Victoria sponge cake. One of my very first cakes that I made when I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease was a Victoria sponge. Some people just add jam to their Victoria sponge cake, but I use jam and cream. I also brought out the mad hatter teapot because I couldn’t enjoy my tea and cake without him!

Chewsy Gum The 100% Natural Chewing Gum!

This week, I decided to be “chewsy”, and try out some new gum! Whenever I chew gum, I am reminded of the days when I used to wear braces, so chewing any gum or sticky chewy sweets was a big no no. The longing I felt when everyone else was chewing gum and stuffing their faces with chewy fruitellas, wine gums and chewitts!

I made the very popular chocolate goo cake this week, which is just scrumptious with strawberries!

Remedy Tea Shop Southend on Sea

The remedy tea shop Southend is a place that I have been going to for years. It is my favourite café in southend high street. It is such a cosy little place, which is why it suits me to a tea! I love the tea cosies and the homely vibe.

It’s Moussaka not mousse kaka!

Ah Moussaka! This is a very popular dish in Greece. For those who have seen the film ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ you will know all about Mousse kaka, I mean moussaka! Moussaka is usually made with lamb mince but we make it with beef mince.
