Hot coconut chocolate milk

Hot coconut chocolate milk

When the days become shorter, and the temperature remarkably colder, I start longing for hot chocolate. When I was young, and before we had a microwave, my mother used to make us hot chocolate when we came home from school. Not every day, but in wintertime it would be a special treat, and she made this in a pan, on the stove. When I got older, and was able to make my own hot drinks, I used to microwave

I don't know about you, but I always have trouble deciding on what to serve when friends or family come over for dinner. And not because I have no idea what to make them. Quite the opposite, the minute I invite people, I start thinking of what to serve. Shall I make a big roast or opt for all sorts of different finger foods? In short, plenty of ideas and an abundance of options, you'd say. Until

A top 15 after 1 year Eva in the Kitchen

After 1 year of Eva in the Kitchen, it's time for a round up. I've written a whopping 138 recipes last year. Some were more popular than others, and some were even sheer crowd magnets. I don't always understand why certain recipes are so much more appealing than others, but of course I'm prejudiced, I love them equally. If you have an explanation for the popularity of the recipes below, please let

Sophia Loren claimed her good looks are all thanks to spaghetti: "Everything you see I owe to spaghetti". And since looking like Sophia is not a bad thing, I have spaghetti (ok, tagliatelle... that's close enough, right?) on the menu for you today. Homemade, even the pasta, because homemade pasta is really good. It will take you some time, so this is not a meal for busy mondays. But if you have

Apple crumble pie and 1 year of Eva in the Kitchen

I'm celebrating 1 year of Eva in the Kitchen this week! When I started all of this, I had no idea what I was getting into. Producing 3 blogposts a week is a lot of work, especially since I have a day job too, so all of this happens in my spare time. I'm always 'working' nowadays, and even when I watch tv I'm simultaneously editing pictures or something like that. It sometimes drives MrintheKitchen

Blogging tips and my favourite equipment

I've been blogging for almost a year now, and the question that I get asked the most (besides 'do you really eat all that food??', to which the answer is 'YES, of course I do!') is: Do you take your own pictures and how do you make them? Well, I do make all of my own pictures, and in my post on watermelon feta salad I gave you a sneak peek behind the scenes. This time I'd like to give you a few blogging

In November, all Dutch kids start feeling anxious. It's almost time for Sinterklaas, who will bring them presents on December the 5th. That is, if you've been good! Sinterklaas resembles the story of Santa Claus, they both come once a year to bring all the children presents. There are a few differences, Sinterklaas is celebrated on 5 December (his birthday) and instead of riding a sleigh, he rides

There are two sorts of books I love to read: detectives and books about cooking. I have a lot of the latter, and I read them like bed time stories. Nothing more relaxing after a long day, than flipping through page after page of delicious and beautifully photographed food. Mrinthekitchen doesn't get it (he sometimes calls me obsessed with food, can you believe that?), but I just can't get enough of
