Curried Cauliflower Cashew soup

Rich, smooth, and creamy. This bright yellow soup with cauliflower, cashew nut butter, coconut milk, and curry flavors is just what I needed after a day of biking and hiking through the beautiful parks and streets of my green city, The Hague. Soup really tastes better the next day (or after several hours) so I […] Read more…

Sunday Night Pizza Night

On weekends, I am pretty much into homemade pizza, which my family doesn’t mind at all. Now that my daughters are (almost) grown up, we are way past Pizza Margherita and am I able to experiment with the toppings.

Or having burritos for breakfast? When it comes to breakfast I’ve never been ‘the coffee with a croissant type’. It leaves me unsatisfied […] Read more…

Pasta with ramp pesto

Ramps are only in season for several weeks, so I get really excited when I see them for the first time. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to forage ramps in the Netherlands! Ramps –daslook in Dutch- are protected here. Don’t ask me why, because ramps literally grow like weeds. When I was living in the […] Read more…
