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 to speed. Because we haven’t spoken in over a year! *gasp*.


In said year, I’ve traded in the adorable city of Delft for my birthtown, Utrecht. I’m currently living there with one roommate (who, from henceforth will be known as ‘the roommate’), who is, unfortunately, lactose intolerant. The struggle is real, people!

I have actually tried eating fish again! My whole body rejected it with a clear ‘NOPE’, so the lesson learned here is that I am still allergic. But hey, it was worth a shot.

My heart got broken, but in the long run, that turned out to be a good thing. If that hadn’t happened, I never would have met my current bf; Yoram.

And it may seem to you readers like I’m burning through boyfriends faster than you would burn through calories while eating celery, but this really isn’t the case. Apparently, I’m just lucky. And to think, I never even forwarded any chainletters!

Anyway, I can assure you that I will be cooking for/enjoying wine with him for a long time to come. I’d choose him over aubergine, and that’s saying a lot, coming from me!

When I met him, he wasn’t much of a cook (and I mean at all), he wasn’t used to most of my cuisine and he didn’t drink wine. Needless to say, most of that has changed. Lucky for me, he keeps an open mind about food, so he will try whatever I put in front of him. And well, once people grow accustomed to wine, and mostly, to good wine, there’s just no going back.

But I won’t bore you with stories about my lovelife. After all, you’re here to read about food! And there has been a lot of food cooked the past year. For example, I experimented with sunchokes (which are lovely, but the flatulence rumors are also true..), I made a turkey saltimbocca (which is so ridicilously easy I have to blog about that), and I’ve experienced some rural-cooking expriences in france.

So to start right of with my first resolution, blog about food. Stay tuned, as my first blog with recipe of 2015 with be published shortly!
