When you’re living abroad for a longer period of time, you are going to miss the most crazy things from your home country.

For me, this took about 1.5 to 2 years. It obviously was related to the fact that I was pregnant at the time. I had a sudden need for eating food from the ‘old days’! And all this while Dutch food at all is not Continue reading

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

Today is already the last day of September, and that means the last day of the Pure Food Challenge! For a month I ate ‘pure’, without any sugar and refined carbohydrates.

It went actually pretty good, my goal has been met Continue reading

Today is a very special “Food Truck Friday” because I have to admit that the inspiration for this recipe didn’t came from a food truck. But when you think about Food Trucks you also think about street food, right? And a night market is also all about street food! Because a while ago, I discovered something new (to me) in LA: the Night Market!

A Night Market is an Asian market with food stalls, music performances and some vendors selling goodies. But those last two didn’t gain my attention, because all I needed was the food! Continue reading

Bacon & cheddar egg salad

An egg salad with bacon and cheddar - sounds amazing right? | in my Red Kitchen

Egg salad has been in my life as long as I remember. My grandma makes the best egg salad in the whole wide world – yes I’m serious! I don’t even know what she puts in it. Raw thinly sliced onion, that’s for sure. But there must be a secret ingredient she uses for it.

I need to ask her for the recipe!
But I myself also make a decent good egg salad if I can say so. For the past weeks I’ve been making quite a few egg salads, I don’t even know why. Continue reading
