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

Summer is still in full swing in California and to be honest I don’t want to think of pumpkins, while the whole internet already filled with autumn food such as pumpkins, cranberries, apples and oh, pumpkins!

I really don’t want to think about it just yet 😉 I embrace summer squash a bit as long as they are here in the store, so yay for zucchini! Last week we ate a whopping Continue reading

You will probably not believe me but I had my first driving lesson when I was 28 years old; and 6 months and 26 lessons later I got my driver’s license. In the Netherlands this is quite fast, but when I tell this to my American friends they are all surprised. In America (or at least in LA), you need 6 hours of driving lessons to do the driving test. In the Netherlands I “only” had to spent €1.500 on my driving lessons, written test and behind the wheel test. In LA the costs are much lower, we only had to pay $33 for our Californian license. That includes 3 times a written test (if you fail, you can do it 2x on the same day to succeed) and 1 behind the wheel test. If you fail the second behind the wheel test costs… hold on… $6!

If you are over 18 then you basically don’t need driving lessons to complete the tests and from 16 you can drive with a temporary license (then you’re under the supervision of your parents). If that’s the case, you need 30 hours of theory lessons and you have to spent 6 hours of driving lessons behind the wheel. 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
