On social media I see a lot of people talking about that summer is coming to an end (well surprise… not in LA! 😉 ), but be honest, do you really need to use summer as an excuse to eat popsicles?!
Last weekend we were in Las Vegas, which is a four hours drive from LA and it’s located in the middle of the desert in Nevada. Summer is still in full swing, and desert + summer = way too hot! Jeez, that wasn’t fun… It was 107 degrees Fahrenheit, and ‘fortunately’

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.

These past two weeks I have been ‘working hard’ to empty out the freezer. My lunch was baozi with a small piece of lasagna on the side. That evening we ate the last leftovers of the slow cooker chicken tikka masala and the next morning my breakfast was a sugar-free banana muffin.
I really wanted to bake some bread again, with my new KitchenAid standmixer I got for my birthday. At least, that’s what I told P. But secretly I had another reason,

Ever since making my own Dutch Baby Pancake I’m obsessed with these puffy and easy oven baked pancakes. I’m contantly thinking about other variations I could make.
I first learned about this pancake on the tv-show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. How could it be named ‘Dutch’ while I, a Dutch food-obsessed girl, never heard about it? No way that it is Dutch! I finally

For the past weeks, since April 8, every Tuesday I’ve been to the Food Truck Lot in Santa Monica, that’s quite often right? Okay, except for the two weeks I was in Amsterdam. But still that’s 6 Tuesday evenings in a row, haha! Last week, I didn’t meant going to the Food Trucks because there was enough food in the fridge, some remains of a cooking session that I did for my blog and barbecue leftovers from Memoral Day, the day before.
But my friends thought it was a good idea to meet at the Food Trucks so we could eat there all together. And heck, why not? At least the weather was perfect!
I love it to spread blankets and tarps on the grass and to order food from three different food trucks. Because yes, that’s what P and I did! I only skipped the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream afterwards because I already stuffed my face in truffle fries, everyday is not a Sunday 😉
And yet this week I give this ‘Food Truck Friday’ a festive touch with this delicious champorado, a Filipino rice pudding with white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. So yummy! Normally I never buy desserts at the food trucks, simply because I still want to lose weight and the fries are often my sin.
I love social media. Okay I’ll admit it: I’m a social media junkie. The moment I wake up you’ll find me checking Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (in no particular order) with still one eye closed.
I wanna know what happened while I was sleeping and I want to know what’s going on in the world. It’s my coffee – the only way to start the day properly.
And the best part about social media? Meeting new people! And that’s a very welcome thing if you just moved to LA. Well ‘just’…
Who wants to eat dessert for breakfast? I do!
But today is a day that I’m feeling guilty. And that’s pretty common for me once in a while. It’s not just one thing I feel guilty about, there are a few things. To start I feel guilty towards in my Red Kitchen. I wanted to post the recipe for this delicious and creamy strawberry chia seeds pudding yesterday, but instead of working (a.k.a. blogging) I took a road trip with my sister to San Francisco. We left on Monday, spent 1,5 days in rainy SF and we drove back yesterday over the PCH. So I failed in putting myself to work and take time to write this blog post on time.
We had a really good time in San Francisco, even while
