Malta and Sicily

Connect with me

Last week my family and I travelled for four days to Malta and three days to Sicily for a short break during our Easter Holidays. Ryanair offers cheap flights from Eindhoven Airport (could this possibly be the easiest airport in the world?) and Malta and Catania are only a 30 minutes flight apart. Ideal combination!...
Today I want to share with you my version of an Easter-Chocolate-Oreo-Cake, aka: 'Death by Chocolate'. ;-) The recipe is very easy (as everything I share on this blog is).     For the cake, I mixed 220 gr of soft butter with 220 gr of fine caster sugar. Then...
Freshly homemade guacamole equals pure bliss. At least in my mind it does. And it's so easy to make! All you need is a couple of ripe avocado's, a clove of garlic, a chili pepper, some chopped up tomatoes and some lime juice. The trick to make the best guacamole...
South-Africa is my favourite country in the whole wide world. Ever since we first visited (all the way back in 2002 to adopt our oldest daughter), the country, the people, the nature, the food... it all took a special place in my heart....

Brownies are always a big hit with my kids, well anything to do with chocolate really. ;-) You can find dozen of easy recipes for brownies online. What I usually do, is mix and match recipes until I find - what I think - sounds like a good one to...
I haven't got much experience baking bread (yet), but I like it a lot. Nothing nicer than kneading dough with your bare hands. Very relaxing, you should try it!;-) I first googled some different recipes and then decided to try out the one from Belgian TV-chef Piet Huysentruyt. The result turned...
Whilst looking for inspiration for nice desserts to make, I stumbled upon Lorraine Pascale's recipe for what she calls 'Neat Eton Mess', her own version of the famous English dessert. It basically consists out of two meringue circles placed on top with some fresh cream and fruit in between. I decided to...
