All of these pictures are from last year when I discovered an amazing bread recipe through Jenmuna and some nice bread mixes from a local garden store as well..

This recipe is lovely, very lovely. {Thank you SO much for sharing, Jenmun!} It requires minimal work and the outcome is a very delicious bakery-like bread with a good crusty crust.

In the past we once discovered a lovely millers store near our {former} home. Back then I made {lots of} cakes with their special cake mixes. I even did make some bread, but now I’ve come across this wonderful recipe, I think I’ll prefer this method of baking. That means bread mixes from the mill is now {again} on my wish list.. Will let you know when we’ll have some, if you’re interested in seeing some pics..

What I really wanted to share with you is a recipe I’ve found recently. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s full of promises and red roses. I mean, seriously, have you ever seen such gorgeous pictures of the making of a loaf of bread? Only the title makes me wanna run straight ahead to the kitchen!

~Have you discovered some recipes you’d like to share? Or a cooking book you’d like to recommend?

Would love to hear!

~Lately I’m finding my way back to baking treats more often..  These pictured above I just bought at our local supermarket.

They have a special deal every Saturday. A gentle young man stands near the entrance with a tiny table and oven nearby.

Appelflappen {as they’re called in Holland} are always nice with a cup of tea!



~My very first try on making popovers {never heard of it before}! Soulemama inspired me with her cosy picture, as always!

The recipe calls for nearly the same ingredients as for pancakes, but with a touch of butter.. And you must put them in the oven.

They’re nice for kids, served with strawberry jam and caster sugar. Although I think they would taste good with honey as well.


~Close up of my latest notebook, wherein I’m writing a selection of recipes {given to me by others or taken from old editions of the cooking magazine ‘Allerhande’}.

I also read a very special book a while ago. The author of the book added a few lovely recipes alongside her well woven story {about a granddaughter, mother and grandmother. More about the book later..}.

All those recipes couldn’t be just left in between those pages… had to write them down!


~Peek at one of the recipes, Cheesecake {below}.

Not the most perfect executed version, but I kind of like the rustic touch it has.

And the children truly enjoyed it with their friends… that’s all that matters!




~What have you been making in your kitchen lately?

Would love to hear!
