This easy fluffy cheesecake with strawberries and elderflower syrup is a wonderful summer refreshment when it is hot! I prefer to bake the bottom shortly, but when it is too hot for turning on the oven, you can also skip that part and you can make a whole no-bake cheesecake. Amazing, isn’t it! You only need some tasty strawberries and some elderflower syrup. Later in summer you could also use […]

My favourite jam is strawberry jam by far! Already since my grandma made all the jams for our family I liked strawberry best. And the consumption of it is the biggest, since when I make crêpes, there needs to be strawberry jam for topping! No other jam tastes so good with crêpes or pancakes like strawberry jam. Years later I began to reduce the amount of sugar, so the jam […]

Summer, sunshine, ice cream! It will be especially refreshing with some goats cheese ice cream with strawberry swirls! Goats cheese in ice cream? Yes, that’s possible and taste delicious! The subtle flavour of goats cream cheese harmonizes very well with fruit. Besides strawberry, raspberry or cherry would also be great. According to the season this ice cream can be modified easily. On the photo I used my latest bargain from […]

The strawberry season hasn’t ended yet, but the Pick-Your-Own-Farms are mostly grazed off. Somehow we didn’t managed it this year to go there, but we picked raspberries and black currants. We had to buy strawberries for jam, because our supplies were almost empty and I can’t get over the year without homemade strawberry jam. Our market stand was very generous, since in 2 baskets were still 1 kg strawberries after […]

As it’s strawberry season I chose the rice pudding with strawberries stewed in lemongrass and lime from page 230. You can read here about Ina’s cooking experience. I was a bit sceptical, since first I never used fresh lemongrass and second lemongrass and ginger in rice pudding? I didn’t know, if I would like that. But indeed I liked that! I loved it! Loved it a lot even! It’s one […]

  I’m back from Flanders! Bruges is such a beautiful city. You can just stay there for a couple of days, because there is so much to see and the beauty of the town is just overwhelming. Another pleasure was a shop there, called Dille & Kamille, which was heaven for everything in the kitchen. And it was cheap! If you’re ever in Belgium or the Netherlands, go there!   […]

These beauties are my latest experiments.   This is the first time I’ve mixed them up. But I’m sure,  they will turn out great. Because how shouldn’t liquor, oil and vinegar with these ingredients turn out great?! I’ve made liquor before. With elderflower or peaches. I made the elderflower one this year again. It’s perfect. So if you can still lay you hands on elderflowers, pick them immediately and make […]

Today would be the perfect alibi for a big cake or even torte. But I’m not a fan of the big desserts, I’m more for smaller ones. But then a lot. Not to mention the high temperatures, that are dominating the country these days. So I’m presenting you with a refreshing delicate easy-to-make fruit soup. With this fruit soup, a mini barbecue tonight, some apricot tartelettes (which will be following […]
