It takes a bit more time to make oatmeal than it does to pour a bowl of cereal, but studies (and my own experience) tell us that eating oatmeal leaves you feeling full (and satisfied) for longer.

Pumpkin Spice Granola

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

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.

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.
