chicken stew mexican style
What I love about Mexican style cooking is the complexity of flavours. I say Mexican style because to be 100% honest I have only eaten Mexcian food in Europe and how authentic it is I’m not sure …. but I love it! I served my stew with brown rice but you could also serve it ...

cookies for breakfast .... why not!
Ontbijt is niet altijd de meest ontspannen tijd van de dag. Als jij kleintjes heeft dan weet jij wat ik bedoel.

grain free muesli | granenvrij muesli
Going gluten free isn’t easy. There are loads of things that you have to give up. Suddenly all meals involve planning. Eating out restaurants can be tricky.

At the moment we are going through some pretty crazy cold weather. Rainy, splash of sun with occassional rainbow, wet snow and windy all on the same day. The sort of weather that encourages curling up with a good book. However we all need to eat and today is no exception. So put down that ...
