Sweet Sunday – Salted Caramel Brownies

I’m just going to come clean here. I am not a huge fan of chocolate. There, I said it. I like it, but I never really crave it. Except for this one simple combination which makes me want to never stop eating it; sea salt, caramel and milk chocolate. So why not try and recreate…

Vienna: 5 Great Places to Eat

Every year, my mom, sister and I go on a girls weekend abroad. So far, we’ve already been to Antwerp, Budapest, Cambridge, Dublin and Edinburgh. This year we went to Vienna, and it was beautiful. My mom had been in Vienna many times before so she was our tour guide for this trip. And may…

Sweet Sunday – Glazed Coffee and Cinnamon Muffins

Muffins are one of my favourite baked goods. I mean, they’re small cakes. Besides, they are so versatile, you can tweak the recipe to your own liking. Make them with sunflower oil or with butter. Make them fruity or add some spice. Seriously, what’s not to love?I love to eat them alongside a cup of tea….

Saltimbocca

Before my second time in Rome, which happened about a year and a half ago, I have never actually tried the world famous saltimbocca. Shame on me. It just never occurred to me to order it when I could eat genuine Italian pizza. Me and pizza have a very special bond, you know. Anyways, my dad…

Sweet Sunday – Mini Limoncello Cheesecakes

Won’t you just look at these cuties? Aren’t they gorgeous?Their looks aren’t all they have got going for them. These little cheesecakes have a wonderful fresh flavour coming from the tangy lemon. The surprise comes later when after the first taste the limoncello joins the party. Although it’s quite a heavy liqueur (at least for me…

When in Kraków

At the beginning of August, I visited a city that was at the top of my travel bucket list for quite some time: Kraków, Poland. I had already heard so many positive stories about the city and my parents were overexcited after their trip to Kraków. Besides, Poland is a country I have never been too,…

Couscous with Roasted Pumpkin

How’s the weather where you live? Here in The Netherlands it’s quite strange actually. Just like the last couple of years, summer started late, so we’ve had a pretty warm September. Thankfully, there have been some colder days and I can wear my beloved sweaters again. I am so looking forward to a cold winter…

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

All pasta lovers assemble! This is the spaghetti recipe to end all spaghetti recipes. It’s fresh, it’s beautiful, it’s delicious. Just know that it is probably not a great idea to eat this before you’re going on a date or dancing, as there are quite some strong flavours involved. Namely garlic.Seriously though, I sincerely believe…

Basil and Oil 2.0

As you might’ve seen me tease on my facebook and instagram pages (if you don’t follow me yet, why wait?), Basil and Oil has been completely redesigned. New me, new blog. I gotta say, it took quite some time to make it look like this, so I hope the hard work paid off. Take a look…
