Frozen Yogurt Cake

Ciao! Last weekend I decided to make a really light and refreshing cake, the frozen yogurt cake! It's the perfect cake for summer, it doesn't require any baking and it's really easy to make. For all my Italian readers here you can find the recipe: Giallo Zafferano. I will write down the recipe in english so everybody can try and make it, trust me it's delicious!

for the crust
280gr Mc Vitie's Digestive cookies
2 tbs brown sugar
170gr butter

for the yogurt filling
700gr of yogurt (choose one that already contains sugar)
6 tbs milk
300 ml heavy cream
12 gr sheets of gelatin

Put the cookies in the mixer and finely crush them. Melt the butter, and mix it with the cookies' crumbs and the brown sugar. Line the pan with parchment paper and press the mixture on the bottom evenly. Put in fridge for 30 minutes.

Put the sheets of gelatin in cold water for 10 minutes till they get soft. In the meantime make the milk hot, but it doesn't have to boil. Then squeeze the gelatin to remove excess water and put it in the milk, mix very well until it melts completely. Now take the heavy cream and whip it until it becomes very fluffy. 

Now you can put all together, the yogurt, the whipped cream and the milk with melted gelatin. Mix carefully with a spatula.

Take the pan out of the fridge and pour the filling onto the base. Now put back in the fridge for at least 3 or 4 hours. The gelatin should make it solidify. 

You can garnish with fresh fruit or syrup, I used mixed berries syrup.

Enjoy! Have a great week!
Love, Fede

Pool Day!

Ciao! Hope you had a great weekend! How did you spend it? I had a very relaxing one, the weather here was perfect, sunny and windy, perfect for a pool day. Did I ever tell you that I'm a swimmer? Since I was a little girl I used to swim. Actually when I was little girl I didn't really enjoy it, I did it because my parents made me go. But when I grew up and I was looking for a sport to keep me in shape and healthy I thought that swimming was not a bad idea after all, and now I love it! When I'm in the pool I feel light and free and I can do 40 laps without feeling tired because the water keeps me fresh. I also enjoy doing yoga and pilates, they are so good for my back and posture. What about you? What is your favorite sport? Anyways, this was my look for a day at the pool with friends, hope you like it! I think that bright green and purple look so good together. Have a great week! 
Love, Fede

Thanks for stopping by, as always! Your comments make me so happy! Have a great week!

Salsa Dancin'

Ciao! Last saturday night I went dancing salsa and bachata to celebrate the birthday of one of my salsa classmates. We had so much fun and danced all night until 3am! In these latin clubs one thing that immediately catches your eye is that women are dressed very sexy and salsa is a very feminine dance. That's why when I go dancing I usually wear mini-skirts or mini-dresses, and of course heels. I have specific shoes to dance salsa, the sandals in these pictures are not the ones I used to dance.
We had a blast, really! Have you ever tried salsa? It's so much fun! Hope you like my sexy look LOL.
Love, Fede

Boho Look

Hi everyone, how was your weekend? Mine was fun, I went dancing salsa on saturday night, I will post pics of my look in the next post. Now I want to show you the outfit that I chose on sunday afternoon for a stroll out in the city. I got this long skirt during my 2013 summer trip to Bali, isn't it nice? It's so exotic, I adore it. Hope you like my look! Also I chose to leave my hair naturally curly because I can't stand to use the blow drier with this hot weather.
Love, Fede
