Everything from scratch! That's what makes me happy. Of course it's not possible to make everything at home, but as much as possible please and pizza dough: for sure! It doesn't take much time and is totally worth it when you make a whole batch (it's totally worth it anyways). This recipe gives you 8 small/medium sized (very thin & crispy) pizza bottoms. You can store the dough balls separately in the freezer and defrost the dough in about 20 minutes by room temperature when you feel like pizza!

EGGPLANT WITH BUTTERMILK SAUCE Made this one for the first time yesterday (ate it once before, at a good friends place - in combination with lamb - nice combi!). Had dinner with a few friends. Something we plan more regular now. Great spending time with other food-lovers. Oh ánd funny people - laughed my ass off... thanks!!!! (Can't really go for the 'show don't tell'-principle here - you had to be there ;) -

My friend M. asked me a while ago if I'd be interested working in a new caterer in Amsterdam North, since I started to cook like crazy. I thought, yeah nice! Another way of doing óne of the things that make me the happiest! I think it was about a week later I started to work for Meike at Semifredo a few hours a week. Meike has been a caterer for many years, but now opened her take-away (with a few seat to eat-in). An absolutely cute place, decorated so nicely (will be in the city secrets section soon) ánd with lovely food -of course!

gnocchi I love to meet people and talk about (making) food! That happens quite a lot. No wonder. Last month in London I met food-lover: J. The best-brownies-ever and gnocchi were the topics. As we were talking I understood J. made (as in REALLY MADE) his own gnocchi. Something that I assumed was pretty time-consuming and complex (never made my own pasta before). I was impressed. But good news: it's not that difficult at all!!!!

Roasted Veggies Sometimes I don't have so much time to spend on my dinner. In that case a microwave meal, pizza, take-away or something like that will do. But it's not what I prefer. I prefer home cooked healthy food. When you have stuff to do at home and you want your dinner to get ready in the mean time. This is what you do:
