Fresh fall salad

You can eat Brussels sprouts raw, too! And if you’re going to try them raw, I prefer them grated… This is what prompted me to try out this tasty bowl full of other fall ingredients and, I have to say, it turned out pretty good! It’s even better with crunchy onion rings. It’s a super simple recipe and it’s... Read more

Pumpkin Petits Fours

These treats are cute and small, but are very filling. I make them even more festive by adding a dot of coconut cream, fresh fruit or even chocolate on top. So good! Photo: Lieke Heijn / Pim Janswaard @www.cameron-studio.nl... Read more

Fresh fig cheesecake squares

They are super creamy and just look at how great they look with those fresh figs! I think they’re the perfect treat to serve when friends stop by for coffee on a Sunday morning. They’re also great for sharing at a party or… just for eating whenever you feel like it. I’m in... Read more

Matcha Latte

Matcha lattes are one of my favorite drinks at the moment. This green drink gives you a mega energy boost and is an ideal coffee replacement, if you ask me. Below is a very easy recipe for making a matcha latte yourself. Enjoy!  P.S. Click here for my favorite website when you want to buy matcha... Read more

Pumpkin quinoa curry

I’m always in for a party. Especially when there is dance music! Maybe you think that, me as a #powerfoodie, I always reject any alcoholic drinks or bites. Nothing could be further than the truth. When there is something to celebrate, I’m going for it. So pass it on with that big bowl of fresh crisps and a second... Read more

Beet salad

For me, the fall is always a time for taking stock and letting go. I take some time to reflect on what has happened in the past year and try to make room for new ideas to emerge. Because of this, my eating patterns also change, funnily enough. I start getting ready for winter, which means bring on the powerfoods! This... Read more

Gingerbread men

These little guys – gingerbread men – aren’t as well known in the Netherlands as they are in the US (where people are crazy about them). This isn’t the traditional recipe (which shouldn’t surprise you, coming from me!) as these cookies are free of refined sugar and gluten. They are, however, no less tasty! I... Read more

Pumpkin Spice Granola

I love granola. I could eat it every day. It’s delicious with a bit of oat milk, sprinkled on top of my acai bowl or scooped up in a handful as a snack. Yum.This recipe is a bit more interesting than your average granola as it contains pumpkin puree, speculaas spices and is sweetened with maple syrup instead of... Read more

Pumpkin Purée

Pumpkin puree forms the basis of many of my recipes. Up until few years ago, I really only used it in Thanksgiving dishes and for Christmas recipes, but these days I add it to just about everything like my almond-pumpkin bread, spicy pumpkin smoothie, pumpkin muffins and my pumpkin-spice granola. It adds a... Read more

Pepernoten

Oh, it’s Sinterklaas* time again! It’s a good excuse to chill by the fireplace with a book and something tasty to eat. When I have some ‘me time’, I like to laze around and eat. I love savory food, but at this time of year, I also eat a bit more sweet stuff than usual. It’s good to indulge every now and... Read more

mix for spiced cookies

During the colder months, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in my cozy little kitchen baking Dutch treats (pepernoten (mini gingerbread cookies), ontbijtkoek, sweet muffins…). The wintery, spicy flavor that all these addictive sweets have in common comes from the Dutch speculaas spice mix that I always add to... Read more

Chai-Chia Parfait

Yum! This delicious breakfast is an adapted version of the banana chia pudding, which I eat at least once a week during warmer months. This version is perfect for fall and winter because of the delicious, warming ingredients like chai spices and autumn purée.... Read more

Squash boats

Oh, the leaves are falling from the trees! It’s getting blustery again and it really is starting to get colder. In the Netherlands, my favorite season is summer. Everyone eats outside and there are so many (food) festivals to enjoy. This summer flew by way too quickly for me, so I’m heading off to New York!In New... Read more

Autumn purée

Why does autumn make me so happy? Aside from the beautiful colors, the lovely light and the actually quite decent temperature, I find apples and pears (and actually most fruit) to be at their best right now. Coincidentally, my neighbor came by last week to give me a huge bag full of little apples and pears. She picked... Read more
