A gorgeous Greek pastry made with layers upon layers of delicate phyllo dough and vanilla bean custard. Bright green pistachios and amber honey make this one elegant pastry!
What on Earth is a Bougatsa? I came across this funny sounding Greek dessert while hunting some inspiration for my next post. Low and behold was this absolutely gorgeous rustic masterpiece on Phoodie. At first glance, my thoughts were…”Well, this looks like it’s going to take some effort. Let me think of every excuse imaginable so I don’t have to get off Pinterest…” I checked out the ingredients and method and was shocked to see how simple it was!

Living in Dubai has some perks. For one, I can have anything I want delivered to my house for free or for only 5 dirhams (1.35 USD!). I usually grocery shop online, because they deliver my groceries to my doorstep for free. It’s magical. Oh, and did I mention that the Ikea here will deliver and assemble your furniture too. For free. America needs to take some notes.
One of the things I love about living in Dubai is all the variety of exotic foods and ingredients I have access to. I have found everything from rose and cardamon flavored camel milk to crazy looking Southeast Asian fruits like the Rambutan. Every grocery store also has a nice supply of beautiful orange blossom and rose waters, something I always found a little difficult to get back home. I totally took advantage of the rose water for these Raspberry Rose Water Cupcakes.
