Sweet Potato, Chorizo & Chickpea Hash

One more recipe with eggs cracked on top. Just one, I promise, this is the last one. For now. I think. Can’t help myself, I love sumptuous dishes where the eggs are cooked along with the rest of the food making it look wonderful, plus, and this is important; you get to dip bread in runny yolks. Bread and runny yolks are always +1. This recipe combines eggs with flavourful…

Gnocchi & Tomato Bake

I’ve never been a gnocchi fan. There. I’ve said it. In all honesty: I think it’s the most boring food in the world. But my son, well, the kid loves all things even remotely related to Italian food. If it as much as looks Italian, he’ll eat it. Gnocchi isn’t something I’d want to make myself. Granted, home-made does taste somewhat better, but I still find it boring. So now…

Smoked Sausage & Sauerkraut Casserole

Run while you still can because this baby ranks high in the top 10 on how not to salvage your new years resolution! This is not low-fat, but with temperatures of -22 (-7F) during the night, we can use all the energy we can get here in the Netherlands. It’s like living in Siberia! A friend of mine passed this nothing short of amazing smoked sausage and sauerkraut casserole recipe…

Tavuk Güveç

This sounds kinda exotic, doesn’t it? It’s not really that exotic, don’t worry, it’s a Turkish chicken stew. Real easy to make, a phenomenal flavour and definite crowd pleaser. Sometimes you stumble upon recipes that instantly steal your heart and you wouldn’t even have to eat them to know exactly what they would taste like. If only it worked like that for burgers and fries! Anyway, that’s what happened to me…

Autumn Pasta Bake

I was flipping through a BBC GoodFood magazine while doing my weekly grocery shopping—something I do every three days, or so it seems—when my eye caught a pasta recipe that included spinach and walnuts. Bingo! Those magazines cost E9,25 here! That’s a whopping $11,85. Absolutely crazy! Left the magazine at the store (seriously, it didn’t even include oven temperatures and their baking time was way off), and just incorporated those…

Autumn Stew Casserole

Confusing name, isn’t it? Is it a stew, or is it a casserole? It’s both. This is not a low-fat recipe. Run while you still can! Or be brave and face an extra 30 to 60 minutes on the stairmaster but, really, trust me when I say this is worth the calories. Okay, now that that’s out-of-the-way, we’ll tackle the next thing. I wanted to combine an old-fashioned beef stew…
