French crêpes by Eva in the Kitchen

French crêpes (and how to pronounce the word crêpe)

Blackberry smoothie

Blackberry smoothie

Are you on Instagram? I am, and it's by far my favourite social network. I love having a peek into other people's lives through pictures. Even though it's most likely a romanticized image. I'll admit, I too...

Waffles with blackberry and cranberry compote

Baked oats

Breakfast smoothie with toasted quinoa

Breakfast smoothie with toasted quinoa

I'll admit I wasn't a big smoothie fan before. From my point of view, anything that wasn't meant to be chewed, wasn't meant to be called breakfast. In the morning, I needed a crunch, something to really set my...

Beet juice smoothie

I guess this won't be one of my most popular posts. The word 'beets' alone is enough for a 50% reduction in the amount of visits to a post, is my estimation after the recipe for a roasted beet salad I...

Greek yogurt and granola breakfast party

Dutch Spice Cake

Dutch Spice Cake

The Netherlands is a tiny country. To give you an idea, it's just a 4 hour drive from the very north of the country to the most southern point. Getting from east to west is an even shorter journey! And yet,...
Raspberry and lime jam

Homemade Raspberry and Lime Jam

I don't know about you, but I'm really slow in the morning. I need a lot of time to get ready for the day and I spend a big chunk of that time eating. I know a lot of people who say they can't eat early in the...

Easy breakfast to start the day

Dutch people eat a lot of bread. We eat it at least twice a day, for breakfast AND lunch. Usually with 'beleg', which means with some sort of topping like cheese, ham or chocolate sprinkles (yes, really!). So...
