The email announcing the shipping of yet another Foodelicious box (the 2nd official box) was in fact a gentle reminder that time flies by at the speed of light. It’s been two months already? Oh God, I’m getting old so fast. Bring out the botox! In case you missed my earlier post; the Foodelicious box is the absolute best culinary (surprise) box the Netherlands has to offer. It’s filled to…

It’s pretty rare for me to blog about products I receive—mostly I write about stuff I buy myself. My culinary new finds. Think of me as Switzerland! Neutral; not raving because I’m paid to have a positive opinion, or out of fear for not getting free stuff anymore. You see that a lot these days on Dutch blogs. Not this time, though. This will be a full-on rave about the…

Foodelicious

Oh yes, those are white chocolate truffles filled with the best champagne infused ganache I’ve ever tasted.

I started using Hellmann’s when it was still unknown in the Netherlands. Heck, for the first two years I had it shipped to me from the US, while desperately trying to ignore the crazy shipping fee. Decadence comes with a hefty price. Now that’s…

Couscous Spice Mix

Whipped up what I believe to be one of the better Couscous spice mixes! You know what a spice fiend I am. But it’s more all-round than that because you can also use it in meatballs, add it to marinades and use it as a poultry seasoning. Posted this to Facebook but decided to store it here, too, for easy access. Since it’s not a step-by-step I’m putting it in…

Simone’s Digital Food Photography

Oh, where to start! I let out a big ‘yeah‘ when I received my copy of this book in the mail. Not just because Simone from Simone’s kitchen is a good friend and a truly remarkable woman, but because I was as excited about this book as she was (I kid you not!). Simone is a great food photographer who happened to write the perfect digital food photography book. That’s a…
