Flax seed crackers When I wrote about snacking not being so good for you, I promised I would share the recipe for these delicious and simple flax seed crackers. I ate them the first time for a shoot for a book by William Cortvriendt,...

Why snacking is bad for you |

Why snacking in between meals is a bad idea

Asian salad with black rice

Is it spring already?? I can’t believe it is March already. Whatever happens to time these days. Is it just me or is it part of getting older, that time just seems to slip away soooo easily! The weather keeps being slightly unpredictable. We...

Vegan mayonaise from chickpea fluids |

Vegan mayonnaise with aquafaba (chickpea fluid)

Vegan “mayonnaise” Officially you cannot call this mayonnaise as there are no eggs in it. Apparently it is a thing… Whatever the name, I was very surprised that this recipe worked so well. I tried making vegan mayo before with soy milk. That worked...

Vuglec Breg

Sleeping: Vuglec Breg – room with a view

On top of the mountain Let’s start with a disclaimer: I have not (yet) slept here. Sadly so I would say as it is a place out of a fairy tale. I am talking about Vuglec Breg, a unique spot that you can only...

Fishmarket in Senegal Mbour |

The Mbour fish market in Senegal

Fish, fish and more fish One of the highlights of our trip to Senegal was the fish market in Mbour. Complete chaos but also with a weird kind of order too. Colorful in any case! If you go to the market in Mbour keep...

How to make the best oliebollen |

Have a happy Newyear ( and try these Dutch treats!)

Dutch oliebollen I figured I could not leave the year 2017 without giving you the best recipe everrrr for olieballen. It’s a Dutch treat and doesn’t translate all that well. You could call them donuts as that is what it most closely resembles but...
