Nowadays I feel like a super hippie who’s connecting with the earth and I secretly kind of like it. I’ve always been a fan of home made food, to bake my own bread for example or even making hummus or pesto. But lately I thought I had no time to do this, so I bought ready-made hummus and bread which contains much more than just flour, water, salt and yeast.
But since I have created the Pure Food Challenge (which is happening this month) I take time again to make things myself. I’m testing

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’

Before we moved to LA I already started to follow a couple of restaurants, food trucks and LA food bloggers on Twitter. And because of that I looked forward to our move even more! There was so much to discover in LA.
One of the food trucks that I was already following on Twitter & Instagram was Coolhaus. Coolhaus makes ice cream sandwiches. Ice and cookies = ice cream sandwich. Or: one of the most delicious things on earth. Ice cream in combination with something doughy is always a good plan: ice cream with pancakes, cake with ice cream or ice cream in a big cone. Or with cookies of course because… how brilliant is that? Just scoop some ice cream to taste between two soft cookies to taste, that’s exactly what Coolhaus does. On our fifth day in LA, I already ate my first

My mouth is half numb while I type this because I just came back from the dentist. It was the third Wednesday in a row that I had to be there. Or well, ‘had to be there’…
The first time I was there for a checkup after not seeing a dentist for 1.5 years. So now there is a lot that needs to be done, according to my American dentist. After an extensive checkup where fourteen pictures (both X-ray and normal) were made, I walked out the door with an extensive

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,
You can barely call this a recipe. It’s so simple, just 3 ingredients in popsicle molds and a few hours in the freezer. I always liked chocolate but weird enough I don’t like chocolate ice cream, chocolate pudding or chocolate sauce.
No, give me a box of quality bonbons or a cup with hot cacao on a cold winter day and I’m a happy girl 🙂 But nobody is giving me a box of chocolates nor is it winter at the moment. Even better! It’s summer and I’m enjoying it. So I grabbed my bike and bought dairy-free fudge popsicles at Wholefoods. They were only 80 calories (yep, I started counting those again) but they also screamed ‘ASPARTAME’ all over them. Yuk!
