Basic Oatmeal

Basic oatmeal aka your new breakfast

If you want to change up your diet and start to eat maybe a little bit more healthier – breakfast is a good place to start. The first new breakfast meal I tried was oatmeal or oat porridge. I started with the instand oatmeal flakes but quickly changed to the more flavorful rolled oats and steel cut oats – which also have… Read more →

Strawberry oat crumb bars

Strawberry oat crumble bars

The sun is finally showing itself after months of absence and I get into spring modus right away. All I wanna do is be outside, enjoy the warmth and light – and eat fresh berries. Maybe that’s why I got seduced to buy fresh strawberries at the supermarket today and – of course got disappointed because they are waaay out… Read more →

Banana and coconut chia pudding

Banana and coconut chia pudding

This post is barely a recipe. Chia pudding is such an easy thing to make. Grind the chia seeds, add liquid to your liking – wait a little – and you’re done! The possibilities are endless. I love having some chia pudding for breakfast. Or as a snack with some fresh fruit. The seeds are loaded with fibre, protein and minerals… Read more →

Honey lemon ginger cookies

Honey lemon ginger cookies

Honey, lemon and ginger is a great combo for when you’re feeling a bit under the weather. Honey to sooth. Lemon to refresh. And ginger to fight off the cold and give that extra zing you need. Since we’re still in the middle of winter – outside the snow refuses to melt – I think we can use that nice combo.… Read more →

coconut lemon cake

Coconut lemon cake (gluten and sugarfree)

I made coconut cake before and I made coconut macaroons before. Both super yummy recipes. But this coconut lemon cake is a whole other level. Super moist, fluffy and a nice zing of fresh lemon and zest. It does require a little more effort than the usual cakes I make. But sieving the flours and whipping up the egg whites… Read more →

kruidnootjes

Kruidnootjes (Dutch holiday spice cookies)

Ok, I don’t know how to translate this into English the right way. But I guess you can call them ‘spice nuts’. Little spice cookies, shaped like little nuts. They are traditionally eaten during the 5 december holiday of Saint-Nicholas. The particularly distinct custom associated with kruidnoten is throwing them in handfuls through the room so children can look for them.… Read more →

easy apple muffins

Easy apple muffins

It’s been a long long time since I’ve posted any new recipes. Not that I think that anyone is following me at this moment. But for those who wonder why, I’ve moved into a new house and with that house, an awesome new kitchen. These easy apple muffins are the first things I baked in my brand new oven. I didn’t… Read more →

raspberry and avocado smoothie ingredients

Raspberry avocado smoothie

With the exception of baking I’m pretty much a freestyler in the kitchen. I just check my fridge and pantry and whip something up with whatever I got. This goes for dinner, my pancakes in the morning and smoothies as well. Writing down a recipe for a smoothie feels a bit odd to me. But it’s good to have some… Read more →

The Thai chicken recipe everyone asks for

This post is for all the people who have asked for my husbands Thai chicken recipe. I know you loved it and here it is. It’s my husbands recipe. He handles all the meat in the house since I stopped eating meat about 3 years ago. Eating meat generally makes me feel tired and I have a hard time digesting… Read more →
