Spring Chicken Sandwich

Finally I get to eat chicken salad sandwiches and drink serious glasses of milk again in the back yard while reading books! My favourite pastime. Crazy as it may sound, I built this sandwich around a bottle of mango vinegar; my latest culinary addiction. It turned out every bit as spring-like, fresh and wonderful as I hoped it would be. This sandwich is so chockfull of flavour, texture and surprising…

    Apple Couscous & Goat Cheese Cucumber Rolls

    This recipe came with the Hello Fresh Box I tried a couple of months ago. The vegetable box didn’t do it for me, but the recipe was a keeper, after I tweaked it a bit. You know I can’t leave things alone. It’s a lovely light, fresh, sweet and vegetarian spring dish with a slight kick. Funky cucumber rolls filled with a honey-sweetened goat geese and walnuts served alongside a…

      Shakshuka

      I adore these simple one-pan dishes. Especially those where you throw a few eggs into the equation and poach them in whatever it is you’re making. In that light, me sharing this classic Middle Eastern dish called Shashuka probably doesn’t come as a big surprise to some of you. And really, if this is the first you’ve heard of it let me tell you that you’ve been missing out… we…

        Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Jam Sandwich

        Bacon sandwich. Technically speaking I shouldn’t even have to write anything else after these two words, right? But I will, like I always do. I just don’t know when to shut up. The story is short and sweet; saw this divine combination of bacon and tomato jam in a Triple D episode about a place named Cutty’s in Boston. I’m such a die-hard Triple D fan, it’s pathetic. But anyway,…

          Potato & Corn Chowder

          We’re well into january and I’ve yet to see the first snow flake in my part of the Netherlands. Don’t get me wrong because I’m not complaining; icy roads and I are just no match, but it’s still windy, rainy and grey enough for me to want to break out the hearty, savoury soups, stews and chili. And this is one of ‘em. Especially one as addictive as this old-fashioned,…

            Easy Pizza Pitas

            This isn’t really a recipe, that first. Mainly it’s just a simple snack that my son has been hooked on since the first time I made them. The kid’s a pizza junkie. There’s just no other way to put it. If it even remotely looks or tastes like pizza, he’s game. The thought of using a few pre-made pitas as at the basis for a quick, easy and totally satisfying…
