Belgian waffles with fruit and yoghurt for breakfast

Are you looking for a healthy treat for breakfast? These Belgian waffles may be just what you are looking for!  As in the traditional recipe, these waffles do have quite some butter in them. Sugar-wise on the other hand, these contain only a little bit. With the yoghurt and fruit on top they do make quite a healthy breakfast and are absolutely super delicious, I promise! 10 years ago my husband and I moved from Belgium to London.  To celebrate, I wanted…

Venezuela These corn cakes are a traditional recipe from Venezuela recommended by a lovely Venezuelan friend. She used to have them every day in Venezuela, just as I used to eat bread every day in Belgium.  ‘Arepa’ is simply the Spanish name for these corn cakes as used in most of South America.

They get totally excited when they even come near gingerbread houses! Icing! Sweets!! Yay!! The only thing about gingerbread houses of course, is the amount of sugar that is involved.

Tomato chutney from Granny Wendy’s recipe book

Tomato chutney from Granny Wendy’s recipe book

When we planted our tomatoes in Spring, I wondered what I would do with them when they would all be ripe and ready at the same time.

Homemade aubergine and mozzarella pizza

Homemade aubergine and mozzarella pizza

All kids love pizza, don’t they? I haven’t come across a kid who doesn’t like pizza yet I believe, have you? My kids absolutely love pizza, especially if they can make them themselves and choose and pick what goes on it. We often can make our own pizza without having to plan it much, the fridge and the kitchen cupboard usually provide all we need for it. This aubergine and mozzarella pizza is my new favourite pizza.

A pirate party it was. In this post I want to show what homemade party food we served.
