Hello! My name is Sophie & I have lived in Brussels, Belgium for 10 years. Now, I live with my husband Peter elsewhere. I love to cook, eat & bake a lot. I cook mostly healthily but with a twist! In the last few months, aka End of July 2017, my blog is about: My name is Sophie & I love to cook & bake mostly healthily but with a twist! There is a bit of gardening & travelling in here too! Enjoy! 🙂
I love to cook in general. I inherited my cooking skills from my late paternal grandmother. I cooked & baked with her when I was little. She also had a large veggies & flower garden. I am a lot like her in different ways. She was my moemoe, my inspiration in all things in life.
Besides cooking & baking, I also love to grow a few veggies from scratch myself. My husband & I have since last year an allotment. We grow organic veggies & fruits. I have published some gardening updates with you all in the last year & one of my gardening posts was number 1 in the most viewed posts of my blog in 2015! Ooh yes, about 17,000 times! That makes me a very happy woman! 🙂
I also love to go to museums, photo exhibitions & art exhibitions. I also love to travel & sleep in. I love different kinds of music, from classical to jazz & metal to hip hop.
My favourite bands are: Within Temptation, Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Pixies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Joss Stone, Jamie Cullum, Ella Fitzgerald, Angie Stone, Mary J. Blige & my favorite band of all time is: FAITH NO MORE! They rock! 🙂
In the last years, my recipes have been featured online on websites like multiple times with many recipes onAustraliancarobs.com,Chocodelic.nl,with my breakfast smoothy & also in their newsletter,I was featured 22 times on Instructables!!!!
