Do you know the recipe ‘ rabbit with prunes’? You have probably heard from it! No, we are not cooking rabbit with prunes tonight! So, what are we cooking then? Roe with prunes! This recipe is based on the original recipe for rabbit with prunes. I made the roe with sage, onion and dark beer. Wild meat and dark beer tend to match well. Often, the recipe rabbit with prunes is also made with dark beer. Then I chose to work with dried prumes in stead of frech ones, because they have a fuller flavour.
The countdown to Christmas has begun! This means it is time for some christmas dishes. I chose to serve some turkey with pistachios and a cranberry sauce. Of course, I also add some croquettes to the recipe! Read more →
The cold is back in town. This makes me crave for warm winter dishes. You too? If I think about winter dishes, I immediately think about wild meat and cranberries. How random that these two ingredients happen to be the ingredients for this new recipe! For this recipe I tried to keep the wild flavour as much as possible by making the hare sauce based on wild game stock and cooking cream. Simple, but yet so good! Read more →
I always find it quite hard to be original when it comes to vegetarian recipes. These recipes feel less familiar to me. So, I often search the internet looking for inspiration. While looking, I found a vegetarian recipe for pasta with mushrooms. I can work with this! Because it is still fall, I wanted to give the dish a little fall feeling. That is why I chose to season the dish with walnuts. It is a simple, but delicious recipe! I also think it would taste great with some parmesan cheese! Just saying!
Throughout the entire year, you can find red beets in the supermarket. Did you know that red beets are really healthy? They help reduce high blood pressure, work anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and fight damage to your cognitive function. Interesting right? This means, I have no other choice than to use red beets in one of my recipes. Eventually, I decided to make a sauce out of red beets. Because a red beet sauce made out of only red beets is quite plain, I added some more ingredients to the mix. That way the sauce will have even more flavour.
This dish is actually a twist on a traditional Belgian dish called steak with fries. A delicious steak, served with fries, bacon and a sauce of red beet and apple. You can choose to pour the sauce over your meat or just use it as a dip for your fries! Both are equally good! Finally, you can find the recipe for this dish if you scroll down a bit. Now, you can get cooking! Good luck!

I know you have waited a long time, but I can finally share the first pizza recipe with you guys! And oh yeah, this pizza is completely vegetarian! This flat board pizza was made with cottage cheese, spring onion, asparagus and of course grated cheese! How did I come up with this recipe? Well, my boyfriend is a big fan of pizza. I personally enjoy a pizza from the pizzeria a lot less. They are too greasy for me and I always tend to feel bad after eating it. Read more →
Every week I order my groceries online. Then, I just pick them up at the supermarket at my prefered time. For me, this is perfect! It saves me a lot of time and usually the supermarkets are about to close when I get off work. The downside is that this does go wrong sometimes. How? Well, I tend to look at the title of the product and the image instead of the description with the measure in it. You feel me coming? On the image the product tends to look big. Read more →
It is that time of year again! The leafs are falling from the trees, it is getting colder,…that’s right fall season is back! That means it is time for me to share a real fall recipe with you! What is a real fall ingredient? For me, pumpkin automatically pops in my head. You have them in all shapes, sizes and colours. Now, maybe not ALL colours.

I used to be a big fan of the recipe ‘vogelnest’. Every time it felt like a surprise when I opened up my meatball and found a boiled egg inside. This got me thinking. Why not hide something else in the meatball. Exciting no?! Being a big fan of cheese, I decided to put a little mozzarella ball inside. If you then fry the meatballs, the mozzarella will melt. The meatballs are served with fried white cabbage. Are you excited to try this recipe? Keep reading! Read more →
