Wine suggestions

Wine suggestions

Yay wine!   New things are always awesome. Since Maren knows enough about wine and dining, I thought a side-blog about wine would be a good idea. So, there we are. A brand new sideblog about wine! It’s still under construction though.  

De regreso de los muertos.

De regreso de los muertos.

Hi everyone! I know you all loved reading Maren’s posts; but too bad: we were hacked and attacked. All her hard work is gone. *sadsmileyface*. BUT since I’m an awesome geek I managed to get some backups and I can make sure the most of the posts will be back. So. Good news: We’re busy rebuilding. I mean, I gave this blog as a gift to her, sooo there’s no way out for me. Give us some time. See you…

New years resolutions – part 2

New years resolutions – part 2

Oh my sweet potato! And no, this isn’t a cute nickname, although after tasting this, it migt as well be..So let’s talk about food! Now, I know that in january everybody is trying to lose weight, eat healthier etcetera. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some healthy food. Give me a crisp bowl of salad with some vinaigrette, and I’m a happy girl. But, as most people, I also happen to love cream, butter, cheese, and bacon. Don’t lie,…

New years resolutions – part 1

New years resolutions – part 1

So, I might be just a little bit late to still jump upon the ‘resolutions’ bandwagon, but I’m gonna do it anyway. My first resolution: find more time to blog about the things I’m passionate about (so, mainly food and wine). My second resolution: stop apoligizing when in fact, I don’t blog at all. It’s not that I don’t want to, but it’s hard to find the time! With that out of the way: let me get you guys up…

Greek lasagna

Greek lasagna

One of the things I enjoy doing is reading the supermarket discounts and create dishes with those ingredients. As potatoes and bratwurst where one of the discount offers, I didn’t have to think that hard. I was going to make a stew with sausage in beer, accompanied by potatoes, whether boiled/mashed/baked/au gratin, potatoes it would be. Though apparently the bf is not a big fan of mashed potatoes.. How is that even possible. It’s mashed potatoes, there’s nothing to not…

Apology soup

Apology soup

After a rather busy and hectic school-year/summer, and starting yet another study (in Utrecht this time), I feel almost ashamed to return to my blog after such a long leave of absence.. So much has happened, so much has been cooked (and eaten) and somehow I’ve never been able to find the time to write it down. I am so so so sorry you guys! ‘Nuff said. Bach to the important things in life, like food. First of all, omygosh…

Easy, cheesy, mexican food

Easy, cheesy, mexican food

With all the sunny days we’ve had lately (I know, sun in the Netherlands? It’s a freaking miracle!), I didn’t get around to cooking as much as I’ve wanted to. Most days were filled with barbecue’s or simple salads. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I mean, who doesn’t love barbecuing? However, this week the weather suddenly realized that this wasn’t the south of France but, in fact, the ever cloudy lowlands of Holland, and it quickly readjusted itself…

A woman, an oven, and aubergines

A woman, an oven, and aubergines

I am so, so sorry for my lack of blogging lately. My life is just a whirlwind, and it just doesn’t seem to slow down. I am completely loving the study I started last September, but it takes up a LOT of time! Anyway, back to food! I belive I’ve mentioned Melanzane a few times before, as one of my all time favourite dishes (but honestly.. grilled aubergine and cheese, what’s not to love?). And at last I’ve had the…

Winter, for real this time!

Winter, for real this time!

So, the winterweather has finally caught up with the Netherlands: at the moment it’s full on winterwonderland here. Well, the Dutch version of it anyway. That means 20 cm snow max, public transportation in a state of panic, and we all know it won’t be long until the crispy, clean white snow will turn into a grey, wet slush. Nevertheless! It’s really winter now and that means my stew-cravings are rising up. Now I could have gone with some golden oldies from…

Back to my roots.. in the kitchen

Back to my roots.. in the kitchen

So it’s full on dutch fall-weather at the moment, with the sudden bursts of rain, gashes of wind and sudden temperature drops (last week we went from 22°C to 5°C in three days.. crazy!). Don’t get me wrong, I love this season. from the smell of the fireplace to the crispy coldness on your face when you leave the house in the morning. But I would rather like it to stay sunny. Sunny fall days can be amazingly beautiful, whereas the cloudy days are…
