Apple pancake

Very yummy big apple pancake that reminded me of the one we ate at the flower market in Amsterdam. You can find the recipe here. • Notes: I didn't use so much butter. ; I used water instead of milk. ; I used 3 eggs instead of 4. ; I added maple syrup on top of the pancake and it was very yummy. Enjoy.

More Amangiri

A few more photos from Amangiri and the surrounding areas. The frozen leaves, the light big and textured rocks and the orange flowers were all taken while hiking to a canyon outside the Amargini property on a National Park. Uri is taking a photo in the Secret Canyon, and my last picture in Horseshoe Bend where the Colorado river bends.

The secret canyon

The secret canyon is located on a Navajo reservation next to Page, Arizona. The only way to get to this magical canyon is with a company named Slot canyon hummer adventure. It's truly beautiful and the guides are friendly, amazing hummer drivers and very knowledgable of the history of the area.


LA to Phoenix to Page and a short drive to Amangiri. Amangiri is a beautiful resort located on the border of Utah and Arizona. It's all about nature, hiking, spa treatment, good food and an amazing service. We spent two nights and three days in this beautiful location and had a blast. If you feel the need for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city you should visit, it is absolutely gorgeous.

A new leather bag

I made a new bag from the leather I got a while ago. The design is very simple and minimal, it has one pocket inside for a cell phone and keys and simple straps, both held by rivets. Also a bottom base to keep the shape of the bag. The bag was sewn by hand. I got the inspiration for the design from here, and the DIY hand sewn leather tutorial from here.

Shawarma salad

Very yummy shawarma salad and home made humus for dinner, recipe in Hebrew from here. Next post will be the recipe in English. Notes: I had 9 chicken thighs with no bones or skin so I doubled the amount of the marinade and left it in the refrigerator for a few hours. • I used brown instead of white rice. • Take time with the onion and slice it really thin. • I added cilantro to the mix. • Add the lemon slowly to the rice, make sure it's not too sour. • I didn't add a whole hot pepper, it was too spicy for me. • Over all it was very good, the chicken tasted amazing.
