I love to make things at home from scratch that you would normally buy. That counts especially for fast-food. It makes it a lot less ‘fast’ but so much more delicious! And isn’t that what we all want? These hot dog buns are way better than the store bought ones. Yes, they do take more time. But I promise you: it will be worth it in the end! continue reading →
My boyfriend Tom has one addiction: coffee. Lot’s of coffee. I have to admit he now drinks a lot less because his body didn’t really agree with all the caffeine, but he still really loves it. I don’t do coffee. I’m a tea person. But because I love my boyfriend very much I decided to make him one coffee recipe every week for one year. Starting today. We came up with a great name for this topic on my blog: “Supporting Tom’s coffee addiction”. How appropriate is that? This first homemade mocha frappe was the first thing I made for him and it was a big hit!
This tagliatelle recipe is a new favorite of my boyfriend. He loves avocado and the combination with salmon, chives and red peppers is amazing. Sometimes I make a variation with chicken instead of salmon. It’s a little bit cheaper but just as delicious. I buy my red peppers in bulk at the market when they are cheap and freeze them. They get a little bit softer this way, but they don’t loose taste. A perfect solution!

To be honest I never tasted pomegranate before I made this dessert. But when I came across one at the store I knew I had to make something with it. It takes some patients to remove the seeds from the pomegranate, but the results are impressive: delicious crunchy berries. Today I have a recipe for you with pomegranate and pistachio nuts. This dessert not only looks delicious but tastes delicious too!

I am currently all of casseroles with rice. They are super easy to make plus you have fewer items to clean. The dish I have for you today is a rice dish with chicken, peas and peppers. The turmeric and chicken bouillon cubes color the rice yellow. A super tasty dish that is definitely worth trying!

I thought it would be fun to make a pesto bread. Normally we just put the pesto on our bread, but a little variety can’t hurt right? I used ready made pesto for this recipe. Also, I used chicken, red onion and pine nuts in the filling. Really worth trying!

Pavlova seems a difficult dish and is therefore often avoided. But it’s quite easy to make. It’s super fun to do and your guests will be impressed with you when you serve this at your next dinner party. There are two ways to make a pavlova. The first is to make one big pavlova, the other, and that’s my favorite way, is to make mini pavlova’s. This way you do not have to cut the pavlova so everyone gets their own perfect mini pavlova!

Spinach and ricotta are a classic combination that is widely used for lasagna. Today I make a quick pasta dish with this combination. And really, this pasta with ricotta and spinach is sooooooo good! It tastes super creamy and the salt of the bacon and sun-dried tomatoes makes it complete. You just have to try it. I guarantee you will not regret it!

Sundried tomatoes are delicious in for example a salad or pasta. I usually buy them, but because I had some tomatoes lying around I decided to make them myself this time. They taste great and much better than the sun-dried tomatoes from the store. The oil where you save them in is given a wonderfully aromatic flavor and is also delicious for a salad dressing or you could use it for dipping bread. Maybe a focaccia bread?
