Staying hydrated

Guys, how hot has it been these past few weeks?! Today, we finally got some cooling air coming in. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed these hot temps. But I know a lot of people are really suffering from the heat. For some, this even means getting sick or not being able to function at all. The most important thing during such heat waves, is staying hydrated. Whether you can easily stand the heat or not, there is always the risk of dehydration, without you even noticing it. With disastrous consequences. read more

Smashed Potatoes – crispy, oven fried potatoes

Smashed Potatoes

Smashed potatoes, say what? That’s one of the most common reactions around here, as this dish is fairly unknown outside the UK or the US. But they’re gaining ground as there are quite a few chefs (like Jamie Oliver) are putting smashed potatoes on the world map. And I can tell you, they are a big hit in our house. I’ve never seen potatoes disappear that fast, not even French fries. read more

Limoncello Mousse with Raspberry Sauce

Limoncello-Mousse met Frambozencoulis

A couple of weeks ago, we went to a BBQ and our contribution would be dessert. Which then prompted the question: what shall we make this time? After a BBQ, where you usually do eat more than you’d normally do, it’s good to have a light dessert to finish the meal. Something that ‘will always go down’. A light mousse is what comes to mind then, like the Greek Yogurt Mousse. Just this time in a fresh and more ‘adult’ version: Limoncello Mousse with raspberry Sauce. read more

Vegan Breakfast Brownies – a healthier indulgence

Vegan Breakfast Brownies

Brownies are definitely my weakness. Especially if they are soft and moist, with a full chocolate flavour. I simply can’t refuse. I could even eat them for breakfast. In fact, that wouldn’t even be that bad, if you’re otherwise watching what you’re eating and following a healthy and balanced diet. Yet there is always that little voice in my head: shame on you! Well, then there’s only one option: creating a healthier version. And I think I (finally) managed: Vegan Breakfast Brownies. read more

Seen the weather forecast for this weekend? It’s going to be sunny! Actually, more than sunny, we’re getting tropical temperatures. Not to everyone’s liking, I’m sure. But I think we can all agree on one thing: it will be perfect weather for a BBQ. Which means that our favourite is on rotation again: Korean Chicken Skewers. read more

Vegan Cheese with Bear’s Garlic

Vegan Cheese with Bear's Garlicmet daslook

Cheese – that’s this month’s theme at the FOODBLOG EVENT organized by Foodbloggers BENELUX. And that theme can be interpreted in the broadest sense of the word. So, anything goes. I’ve thought long and hard about what I could make with cheese. Should I make something sweet of rather go for savoury? What kind of course will it be? Should I cook or bake? What kind of cheese should I use? There are so many ways to go with cheese! read more

Roasted Carrot Hummus

Geroosterde Wortel Hummus

Roasted Carrot Hummus

It’s almost April and King’s Day is approaching fast. Many schools in the Netherlands have held the King’s Plays last Friday and everything turned orange. We are not such King’s Day fanatics, partly because we are living in Belgium since a couple of years and the kids attend school here. The 27th of April is just a normal day for us. read more

Artisan Bread – the ‘no knead’ method

Artisanaal Brood - de 'no knead' methode

Artisan bread

Spring has finally arrived. More than that, we’ve reached summery this week! If you’re walking outside around dinner time, you can’t escape the smell of BBQ’s all around the area. We’re not huge BBQ-fans, but we love to eat outside. And with these warm temps, we like to move into the garden. We might fire up the BBQ this weekend, or we might settle for a quick and light meal. What I love in both cases?  Freshly baked bread on the side. read more
