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

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

Double Choc Egg Cakes

Easter! It’s always one of my favorite times of year… Mother nature wakes up again, it smells like Spring outside and we usually get the family all together to celebrate. Easter brunch at my parents’ house is the highlight; think Easter stollen (see book: The Party Edition), croissants, eggs and tasty,... Read more

Happy National Banana Bread Day, dear Powerfoodies! What better excuse is there to bake some homemade banana bread than National Banana Bread Day? ; ) I head into my powerkitchen once a week to make a loaf. Once you have a good foundation recipe, it’s easy to give it your own twist by adding your favorite nuts,... Read more

Cashew-feta balls

These little balls are tastiest in soup or on the side - and then preferably with a thick slice of bread and some pesto! Yes, you can wake me up for that, anytime! I always make a big batch of the balls at once and put half in the freezer so I always have some on hand. Also great when you have unexpected... Read more

Sweet Brownie Swirl

The taste of chocolate with a hint of mint has always been one of my favorites. You either love it or you don’t, though… I will say that. But if you’re a fan, you’re probably just like me and can’t get enough. And with the lovely swirl as topping, it also looks great. Perfect for Christmas! ;... Read more

Cardamom bread

I like to serve this savory bread as an appetizer as part of Christmas dinner. It’s delicious with salad or a savory topping like hummus. And it’s ring shape makes it look super... Read more

Lemon Snow Bliss Balls

How great would it be to have these little snowballs on your table this Christmas? I’m pretty sure they’ll disappear from my table in no time this year - in my family, we’re all a bit addicted to anything containing lemon. They also combine well with my choco... Read more
