Chickpea cumin salad with bacon
Nowadays there is a lot needed to get me into blogging again. Life with a 9 month old baby is very busy, our week is filled with swimming lessons, mommy & me class, playdates, physical therapy and of course just housekeeping, grocery shopping and cooking. I am especially keeping myself occupied to create recipes for a baby which I prefer to serve unprocessed foods, rather than to create recipes for adults. Let alone testing, writing and photographing such a recipe.
In other words: it’s not so easy Continue reading

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!

Don’t look at me like that… I made you a peanut butter, nutella, banana and BACON (!!) sandwich. And that combination is divine! And no, that’s not 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

Are you also so tired lately? I can take a nap every day and every night I fall asleep on the couch around 11pm. That sounds very early to me as we normally go to bed around midnight 😉
I think it’s an end-of-the-year fatigue because I especially suffer from it on cold and rainy days. And I’m looking forward to Continue reading

The sentence that goes through my head right now is: ‘if a burger with strawberries is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. ”
A terrible cliche but so tremendously true.
Because my oh my… this burger with strawberries is só tasty, even though it sounds like a crazy combination. Continue reading
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
Do you know sunchokes? No? And have you ever heard of Jerusalem artichokes? It’s the same root vegetable and it’s also called topinambour, earth apple, sunroot or earth pear (in Dutch it’s called earth pear or topinambour).
They look a little like bloathed ginger roots but they are actually the edible roots of a North American sunflower plant.
I really like this explanation of where the name ‘Jerusalem Artichoke’ came from Continue reading
‘Chinese sauerkraut’, that’s how my Chinese aunt calls mustard greens. And she is right, it dóes taste a little like sauerkraut.
I can remember eating a kind of pita bread filled with sour greens and onion in China. One of my aunts cousins (or at least that’s what I think he was) took us on a day trip into the mountains while we where there. No idea where these mountains were, but it sure was beautiful! We drove the whole day and at one point we stopped at a river for a swim. Continue reading
