Simone's Kitchen

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 version at

But for English I’ve decided to start a brand new blog. The name is Sprouts & Spoons and it will still be a foodblog but it will be a bit more than that. I guess it will be more personal. Just more fitting to the way I see my blog today. You’re welcome to follow me here or – if you can read Dutch – you can still visit me at Simone’s Kitchen. Of course the site will still be there, so you can always come back and check on recipes and such. I have no intention of removing any of it.

I do thank you all for your support in the last years and do hope to see you again on one of the other blogs!




Sharing is caring!


  1. Looking forward to following on this new adventure!



  2. Simone,
    Completely get it. I just stick with my site and it evolves as I do. I realize the brand title it outdated, but – hey – so am I! Haha
    I find my readership continues to grow and evolve as I do, I no longer post daily, and have a couple hundred back logged unpublished posts as I haven’t had the time to get them finished.
    But, am still not ready to let go, though I know the day will come. I also started in 2008. That was a very good year, eh?

    • Ah thanks Valerie. Wow, yes it’s been forever right? Now that I had a bit of a longer thought about it I decided to keep In Simone’s Kitchen and just change the content if I want to. No one to stop me do that right? It kind of felt silly to create a new one and forget about this one which is – after all – really dear to me.. So change of plans!

  3. Congrats on the new blog Simone! Looking forward to reading it as much I have enjoyed this one over the years :)))

  4. I’ll be sorry to see this blog go, but totally understand. We all change — both as bloggers and readers — and we all need to reflect that. Good luck on the new blog! I’ll be checking it out.
