Homemade Twix Bars

During the first few months of my pregnancy, I didn’t feel much like eating anything sweet. I really enjoyed sour smoothies and could eat pasta every single day. Now that I’m approaching the five-month mark, I’ve started enjoying salads more (thank god!) and sweet baked goods - which is why I’ve started baking... Read more

Spicy Mango Ceviche

I love ceviche. When it’s summery and warm out, I like to make this Peruvian side dish/appetizer on special occasions like parties, picnics or BBQs with friends and family. These past few years, we’ve tended to make my boyfriend, Sid’s version, which appears in the Powerfood - The Party Edition cookbook. But now... Read more

Cashew Butter Blondies

Ever eaten a blondie? It’s a brownie’s little sister… I think it’s one of the tastiest, chewy cookie bars on the planet and could eat one anytime. Preferably with a cup of coffee and a good book.... Read more

Choco Banana Muffins

Whenever I’ve been working too much and haven’t had enough Zen time, it takes a toll on my immune system. That’s why it’s so important to take a break and get some rest every now and then, which is exactly what I’m doing right now by going on vacation! Whoop whoop! But you can also achieve this with adding a... Read more

Veggie Fritters

Yum, sustainable fritters! Almost all of the ingredients that I bought for this recipe are plant-based, local and in season. And if you also buy the products from a farmer that relies on a circular agriculture system, your fritters will be even more sustainable (truly next level ; )). From the time I was young, I have...

Pumpkinbread

Pumpkin... I love it! Not only is it without a doubt a power ingredient, it is also incredibly versatile. I add it to curries, oatmeal, risotto, smoothies, pasta,  soups, ice cream, cakes, pumpkin bars... What don’t I add it to? ; ) It adds a certain creaminess and a sweetness and softness to dishes. Winner! So... Read more

Fudgy Tahini-Caramel Brownies

I used to eat tahini on sourdough bread with honey and wheat germ (I know, it sounds crazy!). I loved it. These days, I like to eat this sesame paste on a cracker, but I also add it to dressings and to hummus, of course. But did you know that it’s also delicious in combination with chocolate? Yep! This... Read more

Banana-nut ice cream

Wow, this weather! Wonderful. Usually when it's so warm out, I drive up to my mem's house in the north part of the Netherlands on the weekends, just like last weekend. It gives me a chance to relax and drum up inspiration for new recipes from all the delicious ingredients in my mom's garden. These days, I'm in the... Read more

Carrot-banana loaf

Are you, like me, a huge fan of banana bread? If the answer is yes, this recipe with an orange twist is the one for you. It’s a delicious baked good that comes together in no time and is full of powerfood. What more could you ask for? ; ) Tip: Leftovers? Slice the loaf and lay the slices flat, one by one, in a...

Potatoes with dandelion dip

Last week I was a guest at the first-ever ‘Rabo Food Forward’ event. Food and agriculture entrepreneurs, millennials, and food experts gathered together to talk about how we can provide the Netherlands (and specifically Fryslân, the province I was born) with food in a sustainable way. During the Q&A, I shared... Read more

Chewy oat bars

For the past while, I’ve just been making the same few recipes over and over again on Sundays (prep day!) because I’ve been so busy (this really isn’t a good reason, is it?). But this past weekend, I managed to get into the kitchen to do a bit of experimenting. The recipe below worked out on the very first try,... Read more

Applecake

Last week I made this simple and moist cake with bits of apple baked into it. It’s great to have on hand for unexpected guests, but it’s even better for counteracting a ‘hangry’ state (a state of anger caused by lack of food) when you feel one coming on ; ) And given your reactions on social media, it’s...

Watermelon Pizza

I’m staying close to home this year because my hometown is so incredibly fun and there’s so much to do and see; from dancing on boats to fantastic festivals every week. There are also markets that sell seasonal produce where I’m completely in my element and buy strawberries or cucumbers to make ice pops, juices... Read more
