For the Love of Sushi III – Umi Sushi

Last weekend I went on another sushi date with my best friend. Finally! I was too late to make reservations at a place we really wanted to try out, so we went to Umi Sushi instead. It is comparable to Zao Wang: you can order boats of Sushi to share. There is also a great […]

For the Love of Sushi II – Sushi Shop

Last Sunday I went on another Sushi date with my best friend. I wanted to try something different so we went to the Sushi Shop in the Kammenstraat in Antwerp. On Sunday most of the shops are closed, so it was really quiet. Making a reservation was not really needed at this time (we were […]

Creme de la Creme

I love desserts! Which makes it hard for me to resist sweet things all the time… When we went on our Sushi date last weekend I couldn’t just go home without a sugary treat. My day wouldn’t have been complete. We wandered around in search for something new and on the corner of a small […]

For the Love of Sushi I – Zao Wang

I’m not a Sushi addict, but I do enjoy these rolls of deliciousness from time to time. During my pregnancy this was one of the foods I missed the most, so I made a deal with my best friend – a real Sushi lover – to explore Antwerp and it’s best Sushi places this Summer. Last […]

Mug Cakes

I absolutely love mug cakes. They’re easy to make and don’t take up too much of your time, so they’re perfect for later on in the evening as a dessert. I made 2 different mug cakes but went a little bit berserk with the decorating so they may not look as yummy as they are. […]

Oh Rainy Day

It’s been a very rainy day, and even though I feel a bit more energetic than during the “real” wintertime, I still could use a little pick-me-up. On days like this I like to stay inside, cuddle up on the sofa with a nice cup of hot soup. What can I say, I like it […]

Saturday we went to a Mexican restaurant in Antwerp called Chi-Chi’s as an early Valentine’s date (since we can’t celebrate the 14th). I’ve always wanted to try it out, ever since I found out about it’s excistence. I’m usually not a great culinary adventurer, knowing that there are unfortunately a lot of things I don’t […]

Lemon Chicken with Tarragon

Lemon Chicken with Tarragon

  To make up for last week’s lack of posts, I’ll share with you a recipe I tried out this weekend. I really loved the sour taste of the lemon and the very specific taste of tarragon, though it might be more appropriate in spring or summer, but it’s too good to ignore it even in […]

Beetroot Soup

Beetroot Soup

Aloha! Today’s soup is perfect for warming yourself during the cold winter. I actually used some feta (25 grams per serving) but this combo didn’t work that well for me. So I won’t be including it in the recipe. But if you want to, feel free to try it! You just have to cut the […]
