The end of an era…

I started Junglefrog Cooking more than 8 years ago now. That eventually (through lots of stupid mistakes and other errors) progressed into In Simone’s Kitchen. But times have changed. I have changed and I found recently that I didn’t feel as motivated as before to ad new posts. Time to move on. Simone’s Kitchen will still exist under the Dutch…

Blogging is dead?

You hear it more and more often: blogging is dead or Almost dead. It’s the thing your grandparents started but kids these days are on snapchat, periscope or one of those other new channels. If they are looking for a review on a machine or book (if they would still read a book, because wasn’t printed media dead too??) they…

A year gone by and looking ahead

It’s odd how things can change. Had I known upfront how my year would end I might have done things differently. Or would I? I guess that is one of those questions you can’t really answer. My year started off slow, at least professionally. Not a lot of jobs and I was getting worried until somewhere in april all tables…

Daring Bakers: Irish Soda bread

There was a time – in the beginning of my ‘blogging career’ when I still was called ‘Junglefrog Cooking – that I faithfully participated in the Daring Bakers challenges. I can be mistaken but I think the blogging community back than was much smaller and so participating in these challenges was a really fun way of meeting other bloggers. But…

Sometimes I am just a little bit lucky… ;)

Coconut icecream with roasted coconut and malibu I love icecream. Really. There is something so utterly satisfying about that creamy consistency and I love playing around with flavors and making my own. However the icecreammaker that I had before didn’t really (really not)  live up to the task and the consequence of that was that the last icecream I made…

On TV – Simone’s Kitchen on RTV Utrecht

Well it took quite a while before I got the little movie and since it’s in Dutch I’m pretty sure you might have a hard time understanding any of it, but I wanted to share it anyway. Let’s be honest: it doesn’t happen everyday that I am on TV right? (even though it was for a local tv station not…

The year 2014 in retrospect

It’s become a bit of a tradition to look back at the year that was at the end of it. And man, do I feel that 2014 shouldn’t be finished already… I feel like we barely had New Years 2014 and there we are looking at 2015 already. Ridiculous but true… 2014 was a year with a lot of highlights…

Why I sometimes do a sponsored post..

I get comments on it sometimes. I see critical notes pass by every once in a while. Sometimes from other bloggers who are angry because ‘that other person’ write about a brand/restaurant/event (fill in as needed) and yes, you have seen some sponsored posts pass by here as well. I don’t make a secret out of that. Yes, I get…
