Green Matcha Smoothie

The other day, I ordered a Matcha Smoothie with pineapple and banana at Nordstrom Café. It was watery, not fruity at all, and I couldn’t taste the matcha very well. I was quite disappointed and decided to make a good and tasty matcha smoothie at home. Now and then I buy matcha to make tea, […] Read more…

Garden Pasta Pesto

Once, when I was still living in the Netherlands, I had a small vegetable garden. Each year, I planted and grew rhubarb, beets, zucchini, tomatoes, carrots, radishes, and pod peas. But because a vegetable garden needs a lot of care and attention, which I did not always have, the harvest was less successful than hoped […] Read more…

Berlin: Neni

O happy days: former West-Berlin has a new hot spot, and it’s called Bikini Berlin, a concept mall with many nice-looking international pop-up shops in a great building. Go there, we’d say. Read more…

Purple Cauliflower Tabbouleh

I have a weakness for purple vegetables. So when my organic stand at the Farmers’ Market offered beautiful purple cauliflowers, I had to buy one. I wanted to eat it raw, because when cooking purple cauliflower it looses its vibrant color. On my way home I decided it had to be a cauliflower tabbouleh, for […] Read more…

Berlin: Bite Club

A good night out starts with good food. Bite Club Berlin celebrates the summer with a selection of great Food Trucks. Bite Club Berlin started last year in Kreuzberg, but there is a second location now, right behind the Platoon Kunsthalle in Mitte. Which, lucky me, happens to be almost right next door to where […] Read more…

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry time! This frozen yogurt is one of our summer success recipes. Really, it’s sooo easy to make. Basically, all you need are sweet ripe strawberries, good quality yogurt, a lemon, and sugar. And an ice cream maker, but this doesn’t have to be a fancy expensive one. I once bought a cheap one and […] Read more…

Caponata

This Italian Caponata is definitely summer to us. Because of the vinegar, capers, and olives, it’s fresher and more pungent than its French counterpart, ratatouille. You can eat it hot, as a side dish, or serve it the Sicilian way: at room temperature as an appetizer on a lazy evening in the sun. Btw: Caponata […] Read more…

Soba Salad with Ginger Dressing

This salad with soba, Japanese buckwheat noodles, has just about everything: it’s vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and very, very healthy. If you need a midday energy boost, like me today, it’s a good salad for lunch. I like to give this salad a nice kick so I added quite a lot of lime juice and […] Read more…

Dutch Cheese Pancakes

Holland is not only famous for its cheese (Gouda!), but also for its greenhouse vegetables. Here in the States I come across Dutch red peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes quite often. Holland, tomato land…Who would have thought 50 years ago (certainly not my 95 year old Dutch grandma who never ate a raw tomato before she […] Read more…
