Classic Brownies

Every girl needs a brownie recipe. Because brownies. You really only need about 9 ingredients, of which 1 is entirely optional. Brownies are so universal and so easy to make that we’ve created a real brownie culture, and a culture comes with controversy and debate. There are two major discussion when it comes to brownies….

Aubergine Pizza Bites

After the craze of the cauliflower pizza base, I started thinking about other vegetables that could serve as pizza bases. Let’s say the brilliance of the cauliflower is a hard one to surpass. I will post my rendition of this base very soon as well (it has avocado and it’s amazing). My next step was…

Mango Coco Popsicles

These are loosely based on the Pina Colada popsicles I did two weeks ago. I was looking for something that was as tasty, but a little less stuffed with coconut. I decided to omit the shredded coconut in favour of just coconut milk. I decided on mango because it’s naturally sweeter than pineapple, and blends…

Raspberry Banana Popsicles

Sometimes, things just work out. These popsicles were exactly that. I came up with them, made them and was happy. That doesn’t happen very often. In the end, all popsicles are frozen smoothies on a stick. I decided to freeze my favourite smoothie. Banana strawberry. I couldn’t find strawberries anymore, only raspberries, but they make me…

Melon Sorbet

Sorbet is the dairy free answer to the all encompassing craving for ice cream. When I first went dairy free I was devastated by the prospect of giving up ice cream. Then I found out that I could still have sorbet, which is the best ice cream anyway. Sorbet is lower in calories and fats,…

Cappuccino Popsicles

Coffee … the only way to be awake by the time you get to the office, the worlds #1 hot morning beverage. There are about a million ways to make it, everyone has their preferences (french press, filter, instant, etc.). Also a million ways to drink it (sugar, milk, sweetener, cold, hot, black, etc.) but…

Piña Colada Popsicles

These are favourites at the office, the dumping ground of my experiments. Whenever I try anything new and I make too much (which generally happens at least once a week) I bring it all to the office and feed it to my poor unsuspecting colleagues. They haven’t seemed to notice yet that I unashamedly try…

Banana Muffins

As far as breakfast goes, you and I both know I have a huge sugar addiction. My waist isn’t always as happy with my choice in breakfast, so I needed to find something to do to make sure I could still eat sweet things for breakfast without the added calories. Enter these delicious muffins. Before…

Lemon Orange Popsicles

Living on a very warm island, the one thing you want around 16:00 on an august afternoon is have ice cream. When it has become too hot to handle in the office, even with all the windows and doors open and the one tiny fan we have on it’s highest setting, you could murder someone…

‘Zandkoekjes’ (or Dutch Shortbread Cookies)

This is a recipe for cookies. We call them ‘zandkoekjes’ which literally translates to ‘sand cookies’. Doesn’t sound very appetizing at all does it? I think in English you would call them shortbread cookies, but this is the Dutch version.
