What we are addicted to...

I've been experimenting quite a lot in the kitchen since I moved to this side of the world.  And I'm actually enjoying it.  I spend half of my evening in my favorite area in the house making sure HT hubbie gets a satisfying meal.

Desserts are not a normal part of our dinner until we remember, we had this at one of our friends' place and decided to whip it up at home.

Looks can be deceiving...this bowl is made up of yogurt which is not your 0% or 2% fat type.  Greek yogurt has a high percentage of milk fats and is filtered to remove most of the water giving it's creamy texture (and delicious taste too!)  Add 3 teaspoons of honey (or more) and chunks of walnuts...ta dah!  You have yourself a simple yet authentic Greek dessert! (as long as you don't use a "no fat" cup of this dairy)

And this is what HT hubbie and I've been addicted to lately.  We forgot that calories exist in this world.

(Oh, a little secret, I heard this dessert is a good aphrodisiac!)  :D

  7. Hi ice, i haven't tried greek honey but the home grown honey in NL was pretty good! :)

    Hi Xinli and Glenn, yeah i was not really looking into greek yogurt in SG as I was addicted to the prunes yogurt of Marigold. Mustafa is really a great place to find the not-so-usual stuff. :)

    Hi PY, yeah, i think most people likes flavoured yogurt, I love that too, until I found out how honey works well with a full fat yogurt. But I have to watch my waistline :)

    Hey Jer Lin, yeah that's true...I should focus more on it's health benefits. *wink*
