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,…;)

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.

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? ;)

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! :)
