Honey Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with Sea Salt and Oregano

I remember the first time I ever ate sweet potatoes in my life. It was on a hot summer’s day while I was on a holiday with my parents in the US. More specifically, we were seated on the terrace of our hotel’s restaurant in Mackinac Island, Michigan, overlooking the magnificent Lake Huron. We were…

Broccoli Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts

Summertime means salads. Light and fresh meals or side dishes that are quick to make and even quicker to eat (because they’re so delicious). One of my favourites is this Broccoli Salad with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Pine Nuts.

Zucchini Mint Soup with Smoked Salmon

I don’t know about the rest of the world but it’s been abnormally warm in The Netherlands this week, with the temperature reaching 35 degrees in some places. It’s lovely though if you have vacation (like me) and can go to the beach with friends when you want (like me). When it is as hot…

Mexican Burgers with Avocado, Fried Egg & Tomato Salsa

Well, well, look who decided to show her face on here once more. The last couple of weeks have been quite life changing for me. I finished my 9-month graduation placement, handed in my thesis, and done my thesis defense. And what do you know… I GRADUATED!!! So yeah, after all the stress and nerves…

C is for Caprese

From the coast of Ipanema to the Island of Capri… And that’s where we’ll end our journey. The Island of Capri, located in the Mediterranean Sea on the western shore of the boot of Italy, is the birthplace of one of Italy’s most loved dishes. Well, actually Napels is, but the salad wasn’t named after…

Quinoa Salad Bowl with Chickpeas and Pomegranate Seeds

It was just another one of those weeks when I was home alone, my parents being on a holiday to Dubai and Oman (as you do, not jealous at all). Unlike other times when I had to make dinner and eat it all by myself – I elaborated on this in my Tuna Salad post-…

Penne N’ Cheese with Brussels Sprouts

I’m going to be honest here. I’ve never actually had the famous American Mac N’ Cheese. Which isn’t really a weird thing since I’m Dutch and there’s lots of people here that have never had it nor heard of it. But as someone who has been quite obsessed with the US and its traditional cooking…

Club Sandwich with Homemade Mayonnaise

A Club Sandwich takes me back to when I was living in London. As part of the curriculum for my study, International Hotel Management, I had to go on a traineeship abroad for 6 months. As a self-proclaimed anglophile, the choice for me was quite easy. It had to take place somewhere in the UK….

Tuna Salad for One

Whenever my parents are having dinner somewhere else, I start to panic. Because what do I eat when they’re gone and I’m home alone. Most of the times this results in me eating a sandwich or crackers. For someone with her own food blog, this might seem a bit strange. But too be honest, the…

Bulgursalad with Fresh Vegetables

Back in Holland! I had a lovely time in Greece, and am currently working on a post to tell you all about it. So stay tuned! Honestly, I am absolutely addicted to salads. They are so easy, filling, and you can basically put everything in it that you have left in the kitchen. I am…

Eggs Benedict Part 4 – Putting it all together

You made it! The final part of the Eggs Benedict series is here! This part is quite easy, as it just shows you how to put all previous parts together and actually create the dish called Eggs Benedict. So, in order for you to be able to make this you’ll need to check out the…

Broccoli-Spinach Frittata

My lovely followers, as some of you may have noticed I did not post anything yesterday for Sweet Sunday. For that I give you my apologies 😦 Now for my lame excuse. Honestly, I was just way too busy this week to write a post or even make a new recipe. My father celebrated his…
