Mozzarella Waffles (Chaffles, Gluten-Free)

Again, I had a Mozzarella lingering in my fridge and decided to make some Mozzarella Waffles or the trend of 2019 “Chaffles”. This recipe can be made with 3 ingredients only, but I wouldn’t be called The Spiced Chickpea if I didn’t add any more spices. They are also Keto and gluten-free, and no am not on a diet, I just like to try new things and I hope you too! ;-)

Xmas Dinner for 2!

So, this year I wanted to come up with a million recipes for your Christmas dinner. Unfortunately, a lot happened and with lockdown No.3 whilst dealing with other stuff, I didn’t have time to work on as many recipes as I wanted. However, I did make a Christmas dinner for two (greedy persons ;-) consisting of a Chicken Roll stuffed with Cranberry Compote & Brie, Sweet Potato and Garlic Galette and Roasted Purple Brussel Sprouts. I shared this lovely meal with my two neighbours, who have become my good friends during this Pandemic. I guess, that’s the bright side of this whole drama; that we get to connect and reconnect with others and ourselves.

Grilled Brie Sandwich w/ Smoked Chicken

Back in my student days I used to eat this sandwich a lot at a cute little place in Leiden, my Alma Mater. It was such a new thing to me: a grilled Brie cheese sandwich with chicken, onions and pine nuts. I couldn't imagine that so many years later I'd still eat this. It's that good!

Cheddar Chive Scones

For a long time I bought my Cheddar Scones at Marks & Spencer’s in the Netherlands but ever since that store left; I had to miss them. So a while ago I decided I should make them myself and they were even better than the ones I bought at M&S. My Cheddar Chive Scones are extra cheesy, packed with oniony chives and fresh black pepper, which makes every bite sensational!
