Recipe – Paleo American pancakes (without banana)

Recipe - Paleo & gluten free pancakes

I had a real struggle with paleo pancakes. I just couldn’t get them right. I tried the 3 ingredient pancake with banana but it was to much banana for me. I also tried some recipes that just didn’t hold together. What I wanted was a pancake that tasted like a regular pancake, at least close to that. So I tried, and I tried… And finally came up with this recipe. And I promise: these are delicious!

Recipe – Sweet puff pastry snacks with fig marmalade, pistachios and white chocolate

Recipe - Sweet puff pastry snacks. Easy to make and delicious!

I love puff pastry. I’m talking about the store bought puff pastry with real butter here.

Today I have a quick and easy sweet puff pastry snack for you. These delicious little things are made with fig compote, pistachios and white chocolate.

Recipe - Say it with fortune cookies!

This Valentines Day I have a surprise for my boyfriend. I booked a hotel and we are going to eat at one of our favorite restaurants. It’s not really a gift that you can hold or eat, and I kept thinking: how am I going to tell him about the surprise? And than I got it, fortune cookies! How cute is it to tell your love about a planned trip with fortune cookies?

When he got the cookies he was really surprised. Especially because it isn’t Valentines Day yet. But I needed to give them today because we are leaving tomorrow morning. He loved it! So we are going to have two beautiful days in Groningen this weekend!

Food – Hot dog buns recipe

Great recipe for hot dog buns

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! Read More »


Supporting Tom's coffee addiction #1: Homemade Mocha Frappe

Supporting Tom's Coffee Addiction #1: Homemade Mocha Frappe

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!

Recipe – Tagliatelle with salmon and avocado

Recipe - Tagliatelle with salmon and avocado

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!
