Tarragon salad dressing

Hi everyone!

The salad dressing I’m sharing the recipe of today is one to go with tomatoes.

I have tweaked the recipe I’ve had for over twenty years (originally made with half tomato ketchup, half mayonnaise, a bit of diced onion and the rest of the ingredients of this recipe) to make it a bit healthier and it turned out ok. And I’m not only using it on tomatoes but in salads and on other cold vegetables to.

Try it! I’m sure you’ll like it too.

Happy cooking!

Tomato salad

Hi everyone!

A quick and easy salad recipe today.

This salad goes very well as a side with pasta dishes. Whenever I have pasta or pizza, I have a salad to go with it just to make sure to eat some vegetables as well. But you can also have it with meat or fish dishes.

I hope you’ll try it soon.

Chicken pasta salad

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe this is my 200th post! To celebrate, I’m going down memory lane.

There’s nothing as refreshing as a cold pasta salad.

This recipe is a combination of pasta, grapes, chicken, cheese and mayonnaise. I had this for the first time during my college days in Hasselt. I hadn’t had it again until last summer when I made my version of it. Needless to say it brought up memories.

I hope you’ll try it too and create some memories for yourself.

Happy cooking!

Macaronitaart

Hello Everyone!

Do you sometimes have a craving for something you liked very much as a child?

Well I do. One of those things is the macaronitaart my grandmother used to make. It’s a baked thick vanilla custard pudding with macaroni, usually eaten with a generous dusting of icing sugar or a large serving of dark brown sugar.

This recipe is not my grandmother’s, she never had one and just showed what was in it. But the result is scrumptious.

I hope you’ll like it too.

Happy baking!

Papa Easter Bunny

Hello Everyone!

I can’t believe Easter will be here again soon.

Last year I introduced you to Mama Easter Bunny.

This year, it’s Papa Easter Bunny’s turn.

You can still make him in time for Easter. If you hurry. 🙂

Happy knitting!
