Grilled Cheese Sandwich w/ Chicken Taco Meat

What is it with grilled cheese sandwiches that makes you come back for more? Is it the bread? The cheese? The meat (if you use any)? Or just the fact that grilled cheese sandwiches evoke so many sweet, maybe even cheesy memories. Whatever the case may be, they keep me coming back for more. Over and over again…

French Toast w/ Baguette

Though am not huge on breakfast, I do always enjoy a French Toast. These soaked slices or eggy bread paired with fresh fruits and syrup are definitely not a bad way to kick start your morning. I made mine with a day-old baguette. It’s much thicker and it’s almost as if you’re eating pancakes. Can I tempt you with this recipe?

Turkey Bacon & Cheese Croquettes

Deep-fried snacks will always have a special place in my heart. Anything with cheese, pieces of meat and a crispy outer layer makes my heart beat faster. And this snack, my lovely people is something you would want to make as an appetizer or “borrel hapje” (snack) at your parties. It’s easy, savory and mouth-watering. What else do you need?

Easy Peasy Profiterole Wreath

On the day before Christmas, I decided to bring dessert to my parents place, because I’ve only bought savoury edible gifts and nothing sweet. This Easy Peasy Profiterole Wreath was done in seconds, because you’ll only need a few ingredients: some store bought profiteroles, white/dark chocolate, your fave toppings and you’re all set. Also, ask the little people at your party to fix dessert. They’ll have a good time doing it and you don’t have to stress about dessert ;-)

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.

Roasted (Purple) Brussel Sprouts

I know sprouts have a bad name in the Netherlands and that’s probably because they were cooked through until they became snotty and unappealing. I’ve never really hated them because my mom either stir-fried or tossed them through a curry. They were really flavoursome! But you can do more with these mini cabbages by roasting them in the oven. This way they will become crispy and super yum! But first we will season them before we'll pop them in the oven. And after that, we will coat them in a marinade of honey and balsamic vinegar. Trust me you would want to try out these sprouts!

Sweet Potato & Garlic Galette

This staple of the French countryside works perfect as a side and accompanied with roasted meats. The outside is crispy because of the cheese and the inside is soft, buttery and perfumed with the garlic.
