I have just written some easy-peasy, fun breakfast recipes for the Solo Open Kitchen platform's Back to School special. Make sure to check it out here! One of my own kids' all time favourite breakfast treats is also included in that article... French toast roll-ups covered in cinnamon sugar! These are just so delicious and very easy and quick to make!...
When the misses and I were young... hm, I mean, younger... we used to travel to the UK a lot, especially the South of England and the West Country, we even honeymooned in Cornwall. But somehow we lost sight of this beautiful country the last 15 years (busy travellling the world and so on... ;-)), except for our yearly trips to London, of course. Last year, we picked up on our tradition again and went on two trips, one to Rye and one to Canterbury. For this year's family trip, we decided to visit the lovely seaside town of Whitstable, which is only a 45 minute drive from Dover. We drove the car on the ferry at Calais and enjoyed a wonderful sunny crossing on board of one of the P&O ferries, called 'The Spirit of France'. An hour and a half later, we were already were admiring the famous White Cliffs of Dover. I completely forget how much fun it is to arrive in England by boat!...
Nothing better than avocado. I would eat it every day, if I could... For last night's dinner I whipped up some delicious avocado mayonaise to go along a nice piece of wild salmon and some oven baked sweet potato fries. Our kids absolutely love these fries, so we make them quite often. The mayonaise is so easy to make. Since I am testing the KitchenAid Classic Mini-Food processor for Solo Open Kitchen these days, I decided to use that....

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. ...
