Easy mediterranean veggie and chicken stew
Stew might sound like winter to you... but also in summer this dish is definitely a winner! For this recipe I used a of veggies from @boerentoer. They work with a chain of local ecolological farmers. You can order online every week and then the biological veggies are delivered to your house, super-easy! Check their website for more info! We also sometimes order bread (sooo good!), yoghurt and delicious cheese from them. All locally produced....
Every summer there is one week that all three of our kids are out of the house all together (scouts camp) and usually the misses and I take that chance to get away just the two of us. It is sometimes good to get away together... I think the fancy term for that is 'to re-connect' once in a while. ;-) ...
This super easy recipe is based on a Jamie Oliver recipe. The only thing different is that he used apricots where I used wild peaches, I added lemon curd (of course!! ;-)) and I only added the basil leaves afterwards instead of mixing them into the cheese mixture (but please feel free to do so!)....
Last week, Braun launched their smart looking new kitchen mixer (the Braun Multiquick 9) and invited some foodbloggers to come along and test it out during a BBQ workshop with BBQ world champion Peter De Clercq at his restaurant Elckerlijc in rural Maldegem. I have to say, I already enjoyed the drive up there, so beautiful and peaceful between the meadows....
This summery blueberry pie is just how I like it: easy and quick to make, but full of flavour ànd colour! I used a package of päte brisée (also easy to make yourself, should you want to...). I first blind baked this in the oven for about 20 minutes until the crust was brown and crispy...

The open-air museum Bokrijk has been one of my favourite places to visit in Flanders since... well, for ever (as the ones who follow me on Instagram have probably noticed already). It is just a great place to go for a walk with the family in beautiful green surroundings and meanwhile learn a bit more about farm and village life in days gone by. ...
Our youngest turned 10 today! Reason enough to throw a little party for him and his friends. We headed down to 'Het KAF' in our hometown of Aarschot for a creative workshop. Het KAF is a great project, run by young entrepreneur An-Sofie Gysemans, and organises lots of fun workshops, mainly for adults, but today for the first time... a kids party!...
This easy and quick lukewarm pasta salad is definitely one of my favourites. It is colourful, fresh and so easy to put together! Ideal if you have little time on a summer evening....
Crete is a wonderful island to visit. The landscape, the beaches, the laid-back style, the food… Last summer we flew from Eindhoven to Chania where we rented a car and drove to our rental apartment in the quiet seaside town of Kissamos. The apartment (called Kallimento) was quite new, beautifully decorated and had three bedrooms and a nice terrace. The young lady in charge of it, is really friendly and helpfull! It doesn’t come with a pool, but is within easy reach of a number of stunning beaches. There is a local supermarket within walking distance which makes it easy to prepare a nice lunch at the apartment, should you want to do so....
My wife and I have always enjoyed travelling together with our kids. In fact, we only really started to explore the world after we had all three of them. Our general advice to families out there would be without any doubt: the younger your children are, the easier it is. It...
