Inspiration: Wrap with smoked chicken and pea sprouts

Inspiration: Wrap with smoked chicken and pea sproutsI eat at the dance studio two times a week at the moment between teaching classes and most of the times I either buy or make a salad. It’s easy to prepare and light on my stomach when I have to dance again straight after. But now, I got kind of bored with the salads and wanted to make something different. I figured a wrap would be easy and light as well, so I looked for things to put in my wrap at my local supermarket.

Restaurant: My favorite coffee places in Rotterdam City Centre

image

When I go shopping in the city centre of Rotterdam, I almost always start early, like, I make sure to be there around 10 o’clock in the morning. This means I usually haven’t had any coffee yet. Since I started drinking coffee about two years ago, it has become kind of a habit to have one cup of latte or cappuccino in the morning. I don’t drink more coffee really, but I have gotten quite attached to my one cup of coffee. So whenever I go shopping I take a break at one of my favorite coffee places in the city centre. I sometimes choose the bigger ones everyone knows, like Hema, or LaPlace, but most of the time I’d rather visit a smaller and less crowded place. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order:

Recipe: Cute Easter Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

Recipe: Cute Easter Bird nest CupcakesEven though the wheather doesn’t show signs of spring at the moment (it looks more like fall actually) spring is here and it is Easter in exactly one week already! That’s why I decided to make some cute Easter bird’s nest cupcakes on this rainy day. To get in the mood a bit already. These cupcakes are really easy to make, not too big, so you can easily enjoy them with a cup of coffee or tea and I bet they would look great on an Easter Brunch table as well.

Review: Easter Eggs from Jamin

Review, Jamin easter eggs chocolateWhen I was a child I was always looking forward to the period before Easter, because that would be the time of the Easter eggs. My parents would usually get a bag of these chocolate eggs in shimmery foil with loads of colors. At that time, most of the eggs were made of solid dark, milk or white chocolate and on a rare occasion you would find some filled with praline or hazelnut. Things sure have changed since then. Nowadays you can buy Easter eggs with filled with everything you can imagine. One of my favorite candy stores, Jamin, even sells 40 different flavors! And they add new flavors every year, how cool is that? This was beyond my imagination and I decided to test 15 of the most appealing and creative flavors.

Background: Something about Food Tag

It can be so much fun to answer questions about your food habits! I got tagged by MuyMaaike to fill in the Something about Food Tag, a tag with a lot of fun questions that tells you a bit more about me and the way I feel about certain foods. This tag was only in Dutch, so I translated the questions to English:

Recipe: Grilled avocado sandwich

image

So, this isn’t really a recipe. But it doesn’t really fit my ‘Inspiration’ category either and I feel like I need to share this with you guys, so it is an unofficial recipe.

A couple of days ago, I did not feel like cooking dinner at all, but I did want to eat something that is comforting and still healthy. So I was thinking about a tosti (grilled cheese sandwich, but I kind of missed the healthy part in it. Then suddenly I remembered a grilled sandwich with avocado I had seen on Instagram lately (I love how inspirational Instagram can be by the way) and figured that would be perfection!

Review: Spelt muffin from Albert Heijn To Go

image

Because I travel by train every week, I regularly visit an Albert Heijn To Go at one of the trainstations I pass by. I often check the aisles for new items as they tend to appear first in the Albert Heijn To Go stores before being adopted into the stock of the regular stores. It is almost like in a concept store: the products are given a test: if they are sold often enough, then they will go mainstream. This happend for example with the Spelt twister, quinoa salad and the sushi. This time I discovered something interesting again: two new muffins made with 100% spelt flour. It is so great they offer more and more options for people with allergies or who have a certain food ideology!
