Hey my friends,…Long time no see,…hey? How is life in your part of the world? I took a break from my blog,…because, I needed to & also I had no inspiration whatsoever,…:(
Recently, I had a lot of chronic pain & needed to change my pain medication too. I had problems adjusting to it & didn’t have the energy to cook or bake anything. So, for this moment, this day, I give you some cool pictures from my holiday to Scotland, from some years ago. I looked a lot younger than, not? I hope you like them,..:)
So, I hope to see you in a few days maybe in 2 weeks or so,…;)

Today, I went traveling in my own neighborhood, Mechelen. Mechelen is a cool city in Flanders, the Flemish ( Dutch) speaking part of Belgium. This glorious city lies 25 km north of Brussels & 25 km south of Antwerp!
Mechelen is famous for many things! It has a smaller city centre, so that you can do everything on foot or on a bike! ;) You can find many different cool clothing shops, foodie shops, great cafés, cool coffee bars. We have great museums, lovely restaurants, old buildings with a lot of history in them, great hotels & we are also friendly people! :) We, Mechelaars bike a lot.

Hey, my friends! It has been a while since I wrote or posted a new recipe. It has been way too hot over here to do a lot of cooking or baking! :(
I have spent all my quality time with my husband Peter. We went biking a lot & visited our beloved friends & family. Most mornings, we make easy healthy smoothies to begin our day. I made a lot of smoothies from my favorite blogs & here is a new one, from me, for you! :)
You can really taste the yummy strawberries & coconut in here! Yummy! :)
Hey all! You know, just like me, that you have seen these multicolored paper straws in all the main American food blogs? Right! :) I was wondering where I could find them. A few days ago, I was in the center of Brussels, strolling from & to my favorite shops, where I spotted them in the shop, Rouge.
What is so cool about these straws, I hear you say? These straws are made out of paper, yes,…you heard me right! Each carton box has 144 paper straws. Each box costed me 9€. That is alright, I think. These paper straws are printed with food safe soy-based ink. They are all bio-degradable & compostable. They are from the brand: Kikkerland! So they are an eco-friendly product! :) I bought 3 different paper straw boxes! Let’s see! :) I have found these one’s in red & white, blue & white, grey & white & these other one’s too! These paper straws are colorful, lovely cool looking & not so thick. So perfect for cocktails, I believe! ;) I put my paper straws in my ready cocktails & they sat there for 10 minutes before enjoying them with my husband! They were pretty good & not soft at the end. Yeah! :)
And these one’s too:
Now, lets test them out with these yummy drinks!
You all know, the last time, I did a garden update, my home-grown peas did okey! The second produce only gave me 4 peas! I don’t think they are meant to grow in containers! :(
Now, let’s see what is happening in my garden at the moment! ;)
With my 1st grown green courgette! It was a tasty one too! :)
This is something between a soft serve ice-cream & a smoothy! It doesn’t matter what it is called, it is very delicious! That is what matters! :)
” The proof of the pudding is in the eating! ”
Yesterday evening, I made this glorious rosemary scented oven roasted beet side dish! I used fresh rosemary from my garden! This was just the perfect side dish,…my husband told me, I obviously agreed! ;)
I was home alone & needed a tasty easy Seasonal salad for myself. I looked what I had in the fridge & pantry & made this! It is the end of strawberry season over here in Belgium, so I used strawberries in my salad. I ate this glorious salad as a nice crunchy & creamy breakfast!
This salad was just what I needed! :) How to make it? Read on!

Today, I made these tasty MANGOLISCIOUS desserts aka puddings! :) I loved the sound of that tasty title! I had several things left in my pantry so I made these delicious Vegan & Gluten-Free desserts.

So, these make a delicious dessert and even breakfast, how good is that, hey? ;)
Yesterday, I made this gorgeous tasty, nourishing, healthy curried spring onion & green asparagus soup! Ooh yes! :) This velvety smooth soup is Vegan + Gluten-Free & not to mention, very delicious too! It is great for a dinner party! :)

Today, I am going to give you a new garden update. Let’s see what is happening!
Last week, the sun was shining, the whole week & it did wonderful things to my plants. Outside, on the street it was only 16°C & but in my walled garden it was 22°C. All of my garden plants & container plants grew bigger each day but this week, it has rained all week & all days long so I put my container plants inside my house, directly close by the stove & gave them much light & lots of love & caring of course! ;)
Outside in the sunshine:
Yesterday, I invented these tasty vegan gluten-free gingered rhubarb panna cottas! I used my flower patterned silicon baking mats to make them in! This way, when the panna cottas have set, they are easy to remove & you end up with a lovely flower pattern on the outside! Just look at this beauty! You must taste the ginger & then the rhubarb with a hint of coconut in the end. In the other same panna cottas, I didn’t taste the coconut. So maybe, next time, I will use unsweetened soy milk???? I used 5 ingredients in these beauties! :)
Yesterday evening, I invented this divine white asparagus dinner with saffron sauce served with haddock & saffron spiced oven roasted new potatoes, with the skin on. This dairy-free saffron cream sauce is just divine & I served it on top of the oil fried white asparagus & drizzled that same sauce over my fish aka haddock! It was just the perfect dinner! My husband Peter said that we need to eat this dinner often, this asparagus season! ;) I am happy to oblige,…so, check it all out! :)

This is my favourite ricotta sandwich of the moment! This is one of my beloved archive posts on my blog. It was first posted on my blog, on April the 6th 2009! When strawberries are in Season, I eat it frequently! I bet, you will do so too! ;)
What is sheep’s ricotta, I hear you say?
A few days ago, I made these lovely rhubarb muffins. These are a bit lighter & a bit more moist then I made before but they are so lovely & yummy,…These are also a great tasty food gift & will make a great dessert or a cool breakfast on-the-go,…:)
