Sunday Blueberry Sunday

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...

B is for Bread. And Bokrijk.

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. ...

About a boy

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!...

A few days on Crete

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....

Bali with kids

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...

A wonderful weekend in Hasselt

Hasselt has been one of our favourite cities for shopping and wining and dining for quite a long time now , so when Toerisme Limburg asked me to spend two days here exploring the city a bit further, I did not hesitate at all! Hasselt is al lang één van onze...

Earlier this week, I was invited by Collishop.be to an evening of healthy cooking together with the wonderful Dagny Ros. Dagny is a Belgian-Icelandic TV-chef and author and has just released her second book called  'Easy Nordic'. Venue for the night was Bureau Cuisine in Melle, which is a culinary...
