What if we unbox each other …?!

Hey ho everyone!

Today I just wanna share this amazing video with you. Some of you might even know it already. Now you might say:” What has that to do with a food blog???!” I think this topic is present in all parts of our life. So it also has to do  something with a food blog.

Just an example: With food you have boxes like Vegans, Vegetarians and people who eat meat – just to name a few…  Now you’re sitting in a plane to anywhere and Vegetarians, Vegans, etc. do get their meals first. You might get upset or not, but you’ve already put them into another box than you are in.

We just live in a time where we too quickly put people into boxes, but maybe we have more in common than what we think…

And what do you think?!

Stroopwafel -heavely sweet dutch cookies

Hey ho everyone!

Today I’ve chosen a recipe which will make your sweet tooth happy.

It’s a dutch candy called stroopwafle. Translated it means as much as syrup waffle.

The waffle is made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle. It is one of the favotite sweets of dutch people and their tourists. I’ve tried it for the first time in the city of Gouda, where it was originally made first.

My friend from the Netherlands has send me an authentic recipe for homemade stroopwafels, cause she knows how much I love sweet things!!!

Dutch Comfort Food – Stamppot

Hey ho everyone!

Right now is the colder season of the year. It’s windy, wet and muddy outside. And  you just wanna sit in front of the warm oven, drink a hot cup of tea and read a good book.

And I just got the right comfort food for this weather!  Stamppot is a traditional dutch dish made from a combination of mashed potatoes and several other vegetables or fruits.

Traditionally  you can use sauerkraut, endive, kale, spinach, turnip greens, carrots and onions. Some regional varieties of stamppot are made with fruit and potatoes, such as blauwe bliksem (blue lightning), made with pears, and hete bliksem (hot lightning), made with apples. You can use pineapple with sauerkraut or endive too.

Stamppot is usually served with sausage , julienned bacon, or stewed meat. But you can also find recipes which include cheese, gherkins, nuts or pickled onions.

The Most Popular Foods Arond The World (Part 2)

Hey ho everyone!

You’ve probably already seen my last post. The video about the most popular foods around the world  –  at least according to Instagram Hashtacks in 2015.

 

 

The video shows (fast-)food you can find at every corner no matter in which contry you are or how big the city is. Some things you can even buy, already prepared and frozen, in the supermarket. They’re commonly known. So not really special anymore. Which is kinda sad.

Everyone knows pizza is a italian specialty, bratwurst with sauerkraut a german and paella a spanish. I’m gonna digg a little deeper to find special, traditional or exotic dishes of diffrent contries.

I wanna show you how diffrent in taste, but delishious they can be.

Ideas I’ll get from my friends I met while I was traveling around the world.

So you can be curious.

Love
