Recipe – Sweet and spicy Sambal Badjak

Recipe - Sweet and spicy Sambal BadjakRecipe - Sweet and spicy Sambal Badjak I love a little bit of spice to my food but with a 3 year old I can’t just spice up every dish. Sambal is a great way to add a little bit of spice to individual dishes. It’s an Indonesian sauce and widely available here in the Netherlands. It tastes great as a sauce with meat or use it to marinade for example chicken. Delicious! There are many different kinds of sambal but the store bought variants are by far not as tasty as homemade sambal. The homemade Sambal Badjak recipe that I’m sharing with you today has many layers of sweet, sour and  spicey. Store bought sambal here in the Netherlands mostly tastes sour and spicy. So if you want to try this delicious spicy sauce I really recommend making your own! Read More »

DIY – Super easy bohemian flip flops makeover

DIY - super easy bohemian flip flop makeover

These bohemian are an absolute must have for this summer. They are super easy to make but are so much prettier than simple store bought flip flops! You can use any ribbon you like for this project, as long as it’s not wider than 1/2 inch or 1,25 cm. For the flip flops I used a pair with a nice sturdy sole instead of a rubber sole. This makes your flip flops look a lot nicer and more like sandals. But it’s all up to you! Read More »

How to grow ginger from a store bought ginger rootI love to have some fresh ginger lying around. This delicious root is great in many dishes (like sambal!) and of course in tea.

DIY – Sunburst mirrors (from disposable cutlery!)

A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery! A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery!I love mirrors. Not because I feel the need to look in it all day long, but because they come in so many pretty designs. They also make a room look bigger, so that’s a big plus too! I already have a large collection of mirrors but there was one in particular that I still wanted: a sunburst mirror.

I fall in love every time I see them on Pinterest. But unfortunately they are really expensive and I never see them in thrift stores. So for a while now, I was thinking about doing a great DIY version of a sunburst mirror. And when I saw this plastic silver cutlery set I knew it would work for this project. This sunburst mirror is super easy to make and really budget friendly. But the most important is that it looks absolutely amazing! Read More »

Recipe – Goat yogurt bark with blueberries and almonds

I love goat yogurt and so I eat it almost everyday for breakfast. My body doesn’t cope well with cow milk and for me goat yogurt is a good alternative for normal yogurt. To be honest, I even like it better. Unfortunately not everything is that easy to replace. Yogurt ice cream for instants is almost always made with cow milk. So I thought it would be fun to make my own yogurt ice cream, but now with goat yogurt. It became this amazing and delicious goat yogurt bark with strawberries, blueberries and almonds. Super easy to make and you don’t even need an ice machine! Read More »

This Valentines day I wanted to do something extra special. Normally I cook something really nice (read: something with expensive meat) but we didn’t really have the budget for that. So it had to be low budget but amazing at the same time. It started with the idea of an indoor picknick and ended up with this amazing bohemian blanket fort. How cool is that? Read More »
