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

I love desserts but I try not to eat anything after dinner. Until I got pregnant… My Sweet Tooth took over again so after dinner I always had to take a small dessert. In the beginning I ate lots of those small mochi ice creams, a small scoop of ice cream in a mochi sheet. So delicious! And just enough to satisfy my sweet cravings!

But then I discovered 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. During the week I actually ate no carbohydrates, on weekends occasionally some bread, flatbread or pancakes and then only the whole grain variety.

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

Oven baked fries with peanut sauce and mayonnaise

 

Oven baked fries with peanut sauce and mayonaise. This Dutch 'patatje oorlog' is the best! | in my Red Kitchen

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Dutch recipe. And here I am, giving you Dutch junk food which you don’t normally make at home 😉

Our recent trip to Amsterdam totally inspired me to share this recipe with you. I didn’t grew up with going out for dinner (so maybe that’s why I enjoy it so much 😉 ) but on weekends we sometimes got some take out food! There wasn’t much choice, it was either Chinese food or fries, frikandellen and bitterballen from the so-called ‘snackbar’. Continue reading

Roasted tomato salsa

Roasted tomato salsa, a great snack! | in my Red Kitchen

There are always lots of great ideas in my head, ideas for a new logo for this blog, ideas for food styling and lots of ideas for cookies, salads, breakfast recipes or cakes.

Too many ideas for the time I have on my hands, but normally that’s not a big problem because I know I spent all the time I have on this blog. Of course, I want to post more recipes than two each week but I still have another blog (www.inmyredkitchen.nl) that also needs some TLC 😉

But lately I’m experiencing some anxiety attacks… Continue reading

Chinese pizza with mustard greens

Chinese "pizza" is a great snack, it's filled with mustard greens and bacon! | in my Red Kitchen

‘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

Bitterballen – Dutch croquettes with porcini

Porcini bitterballen - typical Dutch croquettes | in my Red Kitchen

According to Wikipedia a croquette is a: “small breadcrumbed fried food roll containing, usually as main ingredients, mashed potatoes and/or ground meat (veal, beef, chicken, or turkey), shellfish, fish, cheese, vegetables and mixed with béchamel or brown sauce, and soaked white bread, egg, onion, spices and herbs, wine, milk, beer or any of the combination thereof, sometimes with a filling, e.g. sauteed onions or mushrooms, boiled eggs (Scotch eggs). The croquette is usually shaped into a cylinder, disk or oval shape and then deep-fried. The croquette (from the French croquer, “to crunch”) gained worldwide popularity, both as a delicacy and as a fast food.”

According to me a croquette is just insanely delicious 😉 Continue reading
