  • A good friend of mine makes super yummy fudge every year around the holidays. I was delighted when she agreed to share her recipe with me.  After I got the recipe, the fun of experimenting began! Butterscotch fudge tends to need less sweetened condensed milk than traditional chocolate fudges. With experimentation I found that half […]

    Butterscotch Fudge

  •     I discovered the joy of cinnamon rolls in America. This breakfast dish soon became one of my favorites. Originally, I bought the cinnamon rolls that come in cans that allow you to simply pop them out and into your oven. Those have always been an easy favorite in our house but, I knew […]

    Blood Orange Cinnamon Rolls

  • When the weather turns cold our family loves to eat a variety of soups and stew. I always like to make something to go along with these meals to soak up the delicious goodness at the bottom of the bowl. These  cheesy buttermilk biscuits are the best side dish to any winter meal. I used […]

    Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuits

  • Laced cookies are one of my favorites. The ingredients list is short, so you probably have everything you need in your kitchen already. I combined the ingredients and did a test bake. Unfortunately, I burned the first batch. It took a few more bakes until I got my oven temperature right and the time to […]

    LACED ALMOND COOKIES

  • At home, in the Netherlands, we always used to have Christmas bread during the holiday season. I always found the Christmas bread to be too dense for my liking. However, I’ve always loved the raisin bread buns. I decided to try adding the almond paste, that is typically in Christmas bread, to the middle of […]

With a basic cookie recipe you can do anything you want! I chose to add some chocolate on top and a homemade caramel to create a soft and […]

    Caramel butter cookies

  • Before relocating to USA, I received an old family recipe that was passed down from my Aunt to my niece. I have made this Worstenbrood recipe multiple times since. But, if you know me, I am always looking for ways to improve a recipe. Thus, this recipe got a reboot as well. My addition was […]

    Worstenbrood

  • One of my favorite things to do is visit second-hand bookstores looking for old recipe books. I found this book in sunny California. Finding a Dutch cookbook in America is rare, so I just had to buy it.    I recall my mom having this cookbook at home when I was young, but I never […]

    Kringelen Cookies

  •   After relocating from the Netherlands to the USA, over 10 years ago, I found it really hard to find good bread. They were all way too sweet for my preference.  We quickly bought a bread machine, which did the job well until our little family grew and needed more than what the bread machine […]

    Whole Wheat Bread

  • Started with the recipe from baking the goods: lemon olive oil cake. My batter was super thin and dripping out of my pan. So had to open the oven way to many times to clean up and place something under it to catch the drip. Also took the cake out of the oven way to […]
