Ok y’all (<- see what I’m doing here? ), I have a new brunch favorite! I still like to eat pancakes or chicken ‘n waffles on a Sunday morning, but these days I’m all about maple bacon scones! And no, it’s not the pregnancy hormones that are telling you that. P also loves them, he ate 2 maple bacon scones with scrambled eggs and extra bacon the other day!

Home made shawarma om freshly baked pita bread with garlic sauce, who doesn’t like that?! We ate this regularly on Saturdays when I was a teenager, and I still think it’s delicious!
When I was 17 I was working at the supermarket, in the butcher shop, on the weekends and Thurday evenings. On Saturdays I had to start at 7am or 8am and in the end I was the one running the butcher shop.
Making ground beef (every day), crushing cutlets, making lots Continue reading

I wanted to share his recipe with you last week but I happened to have a few bad days (stupid hormones!) and our home server on which I’m keeping my photos broke down suddenly so I couldn’t edit them.
But a new week means new opportunities, so here it is: Cauliflower mash with boursin! I had often heard of it but never tried it myself. That’s because I am not so fond of cauliflower, but I found out last summer that cauliflower is so delicious when roasted (see Miso roasted cauliflower)!
For New Years we went a few days to a cabin in the mountains with friends. Snowy mountains that is, yes even in California!! On the day we drove up the mountains we found ourselves in a huge snow storm. That storm was Continue reading
You might have noticed that I was a little absent the last two months.
Since two months, I don’t eat sushi anymore (ok, the sushi with the raw fish). Since two months, I don’t drink alcohol (and oh my how I miss those spontaneous cocktails). Since two months I use cart wipes when I grab a shopping cart in the supermarket. Since two months I can’t stand vegetables. Since two months, I also can’t stand pasta with tomato sauce. Since two months I’m craving potatoes, and especially mashed potatoes. Since two months I don’t go hiking (ok, maybe that also has a little to do with those coyotes that I saw). Since two months I use a special veggie wash for the fruit I eat. Since two months I eat the food I grew up with (soft buns with chocolate sprinkles and cheese sandwiches! Nibbit chips! Rice with ragout! Crackers with cream cheese! Rice pudding!). Since two months I no longer drink raw pressed juices.
Since two months I lie mostly sick, weak and nauseous on the couch. Since two months I take a nap daily. Since two months I have to eat every two hours because otherwise I get nauseous and have to throw up. Since two months I go to bed between 10pm and 11pm instead around midnight, what I used to do. Since two months there is a box of breadsticks on my nightstand.
You probably already guessed it by now… Continue reading
