Recipe – Pumpkin pie!

pumpkin pie recipe

What else could I show you today then a pie that’s perfect for Halloween: a pumpkin pie! This was my first time making one. Pumpkin pies or not that big here in the Netherlands. I found a great and really tasty recipe at Koken Voor Mijn Dochter. It’s Dutch site which was perfect for me because not all the ingredients I saw on American sites are easy to get by here. Today I’m going to share with you the translated version of this recipe.

DIY – Decorative deer plate

DIY - Decorative deer plate

Today I’m going to share with you a really simple project. This plate is made with a vintage plate and contact paper. It’s easy to make and if you want a different image it’s also very easy to change. Of course you could also do this with other images. But if you want to use the deer: I included a image of the deer I have drawn for this project.

What do you want to see on By Wilma

I’m really busy at the moment thinking about what I want to do with this blog. I want it to be more inspirational. I want more recipes, more DIY and certainly more fashion. I also want to do more than one article every day and better photographs. The problem is: I only have so much time. I already have one great idea that will be a 365 day project, starting in Januari. But I would love to hear what you want too. So tell me,  what would you love to see here on By Wilma? XO Wilma

Recipe – Spooky Halloween candy

Recipe - Spooky Halloween candy. How cute are these little ghost meringues?

I saw these cute meringue ghosts in a magazine and I just had to try them. I adjusted the recipe a little but the idea is the same. Who doesn’t love some spooky Halloween candy? And aren’t they cute?

DIY – Halloween decoration: bats!

DIY - Halloween decoration bats!

Halloween is not big in the Netherlands. It’s winning popularity but it’s still far from the holiday that’s known in America. I am loving it more and more. So I decided to create some Halloween decorations this year. The first things I made were these cute bats. I gave these away to a friend of mine but I’m planning to make a few more. Maybe some on a stick!

Why I didn't post that much this week…

this week

Above you see a few pictures of my week. I wasn’t able to post much this week because of a little accident. I burned by arms and right hand by a burst of flame from my pretty fifties stove. Yes I still think it’s a pretty stove, I’m only a little bit afraid of it now. We don’t know yet why it happened. We think it might be that the oven was not completely turned off and had build up some gas inside. But we don’t know that for sure. I know that I was very lucky, it could have been a lot worse.

My boyfriend baked his first ever cookies in the oven this week, so it looks like the oven is fine. Of course we are very cautious when we turn it on. We have steps now for it:

Step one: Open the door of the oven.
Step two: Smell for gas.
Step three: If you don’t smell gas you can turn it on.

Of course I will be back posting new tutorials and stories as soon as I feel a little better! I think I also have some stuff for you that I allready made pictures of but didn’t post yet. So stay tuned! XO Wilma
