I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for some comfort food. I haven’t done a food post in quite a while, so now it’s time to have a look at some wonderful dishes for late fall and the winter season.
Fall and winter are my favourite time of the year. I love how everything turns red and orange outside. I also love cooking comfort food this time of the year. Nothing like enjoying some family time surrounded by the smell of delicious food in the making in the entire home.
Want to make some of the dishes yourself, take a look at these links and get cooking:
#1 Thai Butternut Squash Red Curry
#2 Crispy Sweet Potato Fries with Avocado Coriander Dip
#3 Winter Buddha Bowl
#4 Roasted Vegetable Salad with Garlic Dressing
#5 Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna
#6 Baked Gnocchi with Cream, Mushrooms and Blue Cheese Sauce
#7 Smoky Eggplant, Lamb Sausage and Potato Pizza
#8 Roasted Chicken with Thyme and Hasselback Potatoes
#9 Loaded Mac & Cheese
This year my husband and I have invited my whole family for Easter lunch.
Since my grandfather passed away last Christmas, I wanted the whole family to get together even more. We’re the only ones left, and I want us to stay close and be in each others lives. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about my grandfather – I miss him so much – but this way I know he and my grandmother would be proud.
I’m trying to plan which dishes to make, but I’ve still got a long way to go. Instead I started looking at DIY projects for Easter. I know the kids will love making hama bunny’s and decorate Easter eggs.
I’ve collected some of my favourite Easter DIY projects. I hope you and your family will have a fun time while making decorations for the Easter table.
For more Easter inspiration you can always visit my Easter board on Pinterest. I’ll collect many more ideas there in the coming days. So stay tuned for even more Easter fun.

As some of you know, I’m quite fond of Gin & Tonics. It all started about two years ago. When I was young, I wouldn’t tough it at all. I was convinced that it wasn’t a drink for me. But as I grew older and wiser, I tasted it again. And now it’s my favourite drink. Actually, we have a Friday night G&Ts club with my oldest friend. We all love a good Hendricks (check out their website – it’s pretty cool), but have tried quite a few other gins as well.
How about you? Are you old school? Or get a kick out of mixing it up with all sorts of things? What is your best gin and tonic? This is a passion that we’ll continue exploring, so if you’ve got any gin suggestions, please let me know.
I’ve collected a few drinks that I’ve tried, or want to try over the next couple of Friday’s.
Hendrick’s gin with lime | White currant & cucumber gin popsicles | Blood Orange Gin Tonic | Strawberry black pepper gin & tonic
It’s vacation time, which means longer nights outside with friends, cold drinks, lots and lots of cold brewed coffee, strawberries with cream or in a salad, homemade lemonade and some family time.
2. Must make honey ginger coconut popsicles from kinfolk
3. Cold brewed coffee and homemade coffee syrups from How sweet it is
4. Avocado strawberry spinach salad with poppyseed dressing from Gimme Some Oven sounds like the perfect lunch
5. A Ruby Red Grapefruit Ginger Cocktail from Edible Perspective sounds like the perfect drink
6. Time for parties in the garden like this one
Today, I want to share some more insta love and show you another one of my fellow BYW students. This time it’s @leboudoirgourmand. Melody is a food blogger and photographer from Paris. I get so hungry every time I check out her her IG account. I hope you’ll like her photos just as much as I do. Hop on over to Instagram and check out her photos right here @leboudoirgoumand
It’s been an amazing week so far. Yesterday, I turned 33 – and my wonderful family woke me up with flags and a birthday song. It was magical. I got the most amazing print by Therese Sennerholt – and I cannot wait to hang it on the wall. And I got the wall clock City Hall by Arne Jacobsen. It’s been on my wishlist for ages – and I cannot believe how we could live without a clock in the kitchen for so long.
But today was even more special. My not so little girl anymore started school today. It was a big day for her – and for us as well. It’s the first time for us, so we’re experiencing a lot of different emotions.
We celebrated her day by going out to eat afterwards – she picked out the place – and a few of her new classmates came to eat there as well. It sure has been an eventful day. I’ll be relaxing with a stack of new magazines, when the kids are asleep tonight that’s for sure.
