French Apple Cake

French Apple Cake

When it comes to French baking it’s all about the simplicity in ingredients yet nothing less than sophistication.  That’s why the French Apple Cake not only uses the simplest of ingredients but it also has rum for that slight elegance of taste to each and every delectable bite. (more…)

Melon & Prosciutto Salad

Melon & Prosciutto Salad

It’s a little too early (or too late) to be posting a recipe about melons (because they’re really not in season right now) but this Melon & Prosciutto Salad is just too good not to share now.  I mean, melons are still available at your local grocery store in the dead middle of winter, so why not just buy one and taste for yourself how perfect and refreshing this salad is.

Chicken Marsala Capellini

Chicken Marsala Capellini

I was inspired to make this Chicken Marsala Capellini because of the famous ‘Rigatoni D’ pasta dish I love so much from Maggiano’s Little Italy in Chicago.  Two different names… what’s the connection?  They are both made using the same rich creamy Marsala wine sauce! It’s absolutely delicious and one of my favorites. (more…)

Raspberry Ricotta Cake

Raspberry Ricotta Cake

The Raspberry Ricotta Cake is another excellent recipe I adapted from Bon Appetit.  I must admit it didn’t win me over with its name (um…ricotta in a cake??), but after reading all the positive reviews (and not to mention the very short list of ingredients) I had to give it a try. (more…)

Classic Caesar Salad

Classic Caesar Salad

I’ve finally gotten over the fear of using raw eggs in a salad dressing.  Being able to make the Classic Caesar Salad at home was my motivation.  Trust me, I’ve tried alternatives, like recipes that use mayonnaise in place of raw eggs, but it just didn’t taste quite right.  I wanted restaurant quality, and to get that I had to use raw eggs.  If you’re like me and hesitant to use raw eggs too, maybe it helps to know that the acidity from the lemon juice typically kills off any lingering bacteria.  This little tip was good enough for me to give raw eggs a try.

Spicy Shrimp Sushi Tower (CWF: Saranne)

Gyoza (CWF: Sigrid and Pieter)

Gyoza (CWF: Sigrid and Pieter)

Love love LOVE gyozas.  These small Japanese dumplings, filled with meat and vegetables, and then pan-fried on one side and steamed on the other side (a two-step in a one pot method…sounds complicated but cross my heart it’s very simple) are one of my favorite appetizers.  We order gyozas all the time when it appears on a menu, and because my children love them too I’m always competing with their six little hands to get my chopsticks around just one gyoza.  This only meant one thing…time to make gyozas at home (and a lot of them at that!).

Spicy Salmon Temaki (Hand-Rolled Sushi)

Spicy Salmon Temaki (Hand-Rolled Sushi)

Temaki literally means ‘hand-rolled’ in Japanese.  It doesn’t require a sushi mat nor a very sharp knife to make clean cuts through a freshly-made sushi roll.  A temaki is rolled using just your hands, as the term implies, and it’s easier to make than it looks.  The Spicy Salmon Temaki (hand-rolled sushi) is one of our favorites, and this recipe makes about 20 temakis (the perfect amount for a family meal, or as an appetizer for a larger crowd).

Penne Arrabbiata – Angry Delicious

Penne Arrabbiata – Angry Delicious

Momofuku’s David Chang has a Netflix series called Ugly Delicious. It basically means the uglier the dish the better it tastes; it doesn’t have to look pretty in order to taste delicious. The same idea applies to my Angry Delicious Penne Arrabbiata. Why ‘angry’? Well because Arrabbiata literally translates to ángry’ in Italian (which in this case means ‘spicy’) and with the Penne Arrabbiaita, the angrier the dish the tastier it is. (more…)

This is a dream salad for those who love to eat a big bowl of delicious noodles.  With the Citrus Ginger Tofu Soba Noodle Salad you can do this…guilt-free!  The soba noodles are made with buckwheat flour so it’s high in fiber, high in protein and packed with many essential vitamins and minerals.  Best of all it has about half the calories and carbohydrates as traditional spaghetti noodles.  This means you can simply eat a normal portion and consume less calories.  Or do what i always do…eat double the amount!

Portobello Mushroom on Puff Pastry

Portobello Mushroom on Puff Pastry

The Portobello Mushroom on Puff Pastry is a recipe I found in a cookbook called Fresh by Michele Cranston. At first glance it looked too elegant, thus too complicated to make (probably due to the combination of making a puff pastry and Portobello in one dish), but the list of ingredients was so simple that I decided to give it a try. Good I did because not only did it turn out looking just like Michele’s picture but it was fast, easy and really REALLY delicious. (more…)

House Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

House Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Have you ever been to a restaurant only to find yourself wanting to eat just their House Salad? Why are House Salads always a side dish anyway? Why do I get the funny look when I order the House Salad as my main course? (Note to the waiter: I’m not trying to be cheap and I’m not on some really weird diet. I just LOVE your House Salad.  There’s nothing else i want to order from your menu.) (more…)

Snowball Cookies

Snowball Cookies

It’s been several years since The Netherlands had seen any snowfall, but this past weekend changed that. We got snow! The kids were happy to be outside all day rolling around in the snow, eventually making a snowman, while I was inside making snowballs of my own, Snowball Cookies that is. (more…)

Broccoli Salad With Red Grapes

Broccoli Salad With Red Grapes

With obvious reasons my husband and kids are the first to try any new recipe I make.

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Chill It

Chocolate Chip Cookies – Chill It

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. This is me trying to bake perfect chocolate chip cookies. I always ended up with really flat cookies.

Tuna Salad with Apples

Tuna Salad with Apples

Tuna salad made with finely chopped apples is surprisingly sooooo good.  I would’ve never thought to add apples to my tuna salad until I tried it for the first time a few years ago at a pastry boutique shop (Saranne in Oisterwijk, the NL) here in my local village.

Either you love hummus or you don’t.  Which side are you on? At home we have a 50/50 split with daughter #1 and I loving it and daughter #2 and husband preferring something else.  My son will eat it one day and the next day not, so it continues to remain a family tie.

Bibimbap (비빔밥) is a signature Korean dish that has become very popular far beyond Korea. It is pronounced BEE-BEAM-BOP and it literally means ‘mixed rice’.

And once you’ve tried bibimbap you will with no doubt fall in love with Korean food.

Homemade Chicken Stock

Homemade Chicken Stock

I’ve passed up a lot of recipes over the years that required chicken stock. For me it was that ‘red flag’ ingredient simply because I didn’t have access to chicken stock…homemade chicken stock that is. I was never a fan of using bouillon cubes because of its MSG content and salty flavor, and making homemade chicken stock just sounded way too complicated. (more…)

Tabbouleh Salad (or tabouli) is one of my favorite Mediterranean dishes. It’s tart and tangy with an abundance of herbs, veggies and the healthy craze of quinoa (pronounced ‘kin-wha’).
