Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Coronation Chicken Salad Sandwiches

I’ve been in a lunch rut. Have you been in a lunch rut?  It’s all salads, salads, salads over here and while I’ve got some good and interesting ones, it’s time to mix it up a little more, lest I start settling for my fall […]

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

Piri Piri Chicken Thighs

I’m so proud of myself for grilling TWICE so far this season. It may seems like stupid victory to you, and it is. But for one THB who has used her grill barely over two handfuls of time in the four years that she’s owned one, twice […]

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Grilled Eggplant Veggie Burgers with Smoky Hazelnut Pesto

Memorial Day. Summer. Let’s grill. I always resist grilling, which is dumb because it’s so easy and, as someone recently pointed out to me, means no dirty dishes to clean (or at least a few pots and pans less).  I liked the sound of that, […]

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Dutch Mustard Soup, Mosterdsoep

Mustard. Let’s talk about it. I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most beloved condiments out there and while buying fun and fancy jams is my passion, tracking down fun and unusual mustards is my hobby. I love mustard. Dijon. Honey, […]

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

Apple Bacon Dutch Pancake, or Pannenkoeken

The best thing about traveling is the food I bring back with me (not in the literal sense because…customs).  That is, after all, how this blog started almost five (!!) years ago!  While the overall food of Holland didn’t strike me as all that unique […]

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

Spinach, Pear and Brie Quiche

Spinach, Pear and Brie Quiche

The weekend is upon us and whether or not Easter/Passover is your thing, breakfast should always be and for that, I bring to you a Spinach, Brie and Pear quiche, which should help with that. I have a love/hate relationship with quiche. Mom made her […]

Mazariners (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Mazariners (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Since telling my work colleagues bit by bit about my impending departure (Friday, yo!), I’ve been overwhelmed by so many good thoughts and wishes and hugs and smiles, and showered with offers for lunch and coffee.  It all makes me wonder if I should be leaving […]

Double Chocolate Babka

Double Chocolate Babka

Funny thing, time. I was sitting around this past weekend, making my to-do, to-see, to-eat lists and I realized that when I set my move date over two weeks ago it seemed like I had so much of it, I’m counting down not months, but weeks, […]
