Nut Bread Mini Loaf

Notenbroodje

This nut bread was actually an experiment that turned out extremely well. As I was sorting through my baking ingredients, I found several open bags of nuts, all just scraps. Didn’t want to throw them out though. I could have just put them in a bowl and snack my way through it, but I figured that I could use them in a recipe.

Lonely ripe banana

There was also this lonely, overripe banana lying in the fridge. Yes, you read that right, in the fridge. I always keep banana’s in the fridge. Although there are tips on how to keep bananas from getting brown and turn from green to overripe overnight, like wrapping cling film around the crown, none ever works very well. It prolongs the suffering maybe for just one day. Keeping them in the fridge does not prevent them from getting brown, but it does slow down the ripening process significantly. read more

Healthy Oatmeal ‘Kruidnoten’

Gezonde Haver-Kruidnoten

Kruidnoten are a traditional spiced, bite-sized cookie that is eaten around ‘Sinterklaas’ in the Netherlands. Sinterklaas is based on Saint Nicholas, who was the patron saint of children. Sinterklaas is the feast that celebrates Saint Nicholas’ name day on the 6th of December. It is often celebrated by giving presents and sweet treats to children on the 5th of December, Saint Nicholas Eve.

While ‘Sinterklaas’ is celebrated in other countries as well, Kruidnoten are typically Dutch and have almost become an integral part of the festivities. The last couple of years, more and more varieties on the traditional cookie are hitting the stores. The most exotic combinations can be found. If you happen to get the chance, check out Van Delft Pepernotenfabriek, they have several stores now across the Netherlands. But be warned, they have so many great and unique flavor combinations (and they let you taste test them), your self control will be put under a lot of pressure there. I tried a few and managed to leave with ‘only’ three bags… Limoncello, Sweet Chili and Seroendeng (Seroendeng is used in Indonesian cooking and is a mixture of seasoned and roasted coconut with peanuts). read more

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin Pancakes

Pumpkin anything

Did I mention yet it’s pumpkin season? Now you don’t need a reminder, do you? I just love, love, love pumpkin recipes. And since it’s October and we now can officially enjoy anything pumpkin, I’ll throw in another delicious recipe: pumpkin pancakes! Because we also love pancakes. For breakfast, lunch or dinner.

These pumpkin pancakes are very easy to make, especially if you have pumpkin puree ready to use. You can use canned pumpkin, but fresh homemade pumpkin puree, without any additives, is so much better. These pancakes are so light and fluffy. And, they are also gluten and dairy free. read more
