Quinoa Power

Quinoa surprised me years ago. The feeling of being sated for hours, the way it pops in your mouth and how it sticks to something like mozzarella as a nice poppy layer. My friend was not feeling very well so I decided to make her some food. When I researched a bit on healthy food…

Classica

Mozzarella…one of the loves of my taste buds. This cheese always reminds me on how your taste changes over the years, since I used to hate it. The eggplant was grilled and then marinated in oil, balsamic vinegar and ripped basil leaf. And you know eggplant is such a weird word! Aubergine….beautiful, eggplant….like what? Ingredients:…

Smoked Mackerel Sandwich

First time I bought a whole smoked fish and took the bones out myself. It was not as hard as I expected! This recipe is light and fresh and I first came across it when I was working in a small cafĂ©, I did make it suit my taste more;) Ingredients: Smoked Mackerel (whole or…

What is in the House Pasta

That moment you wake up and know you dont have an easy meal to eat. But I love to look in the fridge and my cupboards to see what I have left and make something out of it. This dish is a classic of mine which I would make frequently when I was still a…

Rainbow Sandwich

Look the colors! I love how they pop out between the white bread and brown sears of the grilling. You might wonder what is in this, what makes you think I want to eat this?! Well! This grilled sandwich combines some lovely veggies with two cheeses and it brings forth this rainbow colored harmony. Ingredients:…

Stirring is the name of the Game!

  I have not posted in like a month, but that did not mean I stopped cooking. Finally I have caught a risotto of mine relatively well on camera. Since I am leaving in Februari to Thailand I thought I should stuff my face with western food before I go! This risotto I made with…

Simple and Strengthening

When I woke up on sunday it was not a pretty sight! Fallen ill I wanted something easy and strengthening for both mind and body. What came to mind was vegetables, then soup and eventually meatballs because I do love them! The vegetables I used you can replace with the ones you prefer. Also this…

Marble Breakfast

This morning I woke up from a great sleep yet weird dream so I wanted something light to eat that would not take any effort at all. So here is my take on a yoghurty breakfast without muesli but with fruits and graham crackers. The frozen rasberry keeps it cool and fresh and the crackers…

Awarding and Warming Broccoli Soup

Fall is upon us! Cold, rainy and downright less sunny then summer yet I love this season for its colors and lovely walks I get to take. For me it also means cleaning! Since this is the start of being inside more I want my home to be crisp. After cleaning and doing laundry I…

Leftover Burger Brunch

After loads of days (nights) working I wake up with thirst and the craving for food. What happened to me was that there was nothing to eat…directly. I searched my cupboards and fridge and found small bits and bops of food untill I noticed some minced meat. At that point I knew what to do….

Amsterdam Inspirations; Jenever and Potatoes!

My colleague Wolf at the Kring invited me to do a collaboration, he makes photos for Oog op Amsterdam, he asked me to cook a dish that would make you think of Amsterdam and he would photograph it. I was glad for this because it meant a true challenge and soon I began to think…
