Tapas!

I’ve been collecting and trying lots of Tapas recipes ever since we decided to take our son to Spain this summer. Really looking forward to our trip. Alioli and pan con ajo y tomate (bread scrubbed with garlic & tomato) are two of those things that simply belong on the table when eating tapas. Sharing both recipes here. Now here’s the deal; like any other food blogger, I too had…

    Sweet Jalapeño Hot Sauce

    I went a little crazy last time I went out for grocery shopping and ran into lots and lots of pretty green jalapeños. Probably not a big deal to many of you, but in the Netherlands that’s a pretty rare find. I got a little carried away and bought way too much! I thought about jalapeño pickles, tasty but hardly spectacular. I already have tons of jalapeño powder that I…

      Curry Masala Mayonnaise

      Really simple but incredibly versatile recipe that everyone should keep in their fridge for easy access. This is a basic, fragrant Surinamese masala mayonnaise with a flavour intensity that will be love at first bite if you’re a curry masala addict, like me. It tastes fantastic when served with French fries or roasted root vegetables, but it also transforms a few simple cooked chicken breasts (add pineapple!) or hard-boiled eggs…

        Apple Ketchup

        A friend of mine who knows how much I love sauces that taste so different from what you can buy in the store, mailed me a screenshot of a recipe she found in a book called The Green Kitchen. It did pique my interest: ketchup made with apple, banana, raisins and a hint of cinnamon. How can you not want to try that? Something about it screamed ‘autumn‘, so I…

          Creamy French Dressing

          I ran out of French dressing. Do you feel the pain in that sentence? Oh, c’mon, I know you do! Or maybe, just maybe, it doesn’t seem like a big deal to you (depending on where you live), but for me, in the Netherlands, that’s a problem. Apparently the Dutch don’t do French dressing. Well, we also don’t do French fries either because we call them patat and there’s nothing…

            Coca Sauce

            Did I ever mention the BBQ sauces you can buy in squeeze bottles over here? Probably best if I leave you in a state of blissful ignorance. Not much to say about them anyway except that they’re better left on the supermarket shelf. They’re little more than glorified bell pepper sauces with some added sugar. They make no sense whatsoever. So being able to make your own bbq sauce is…
