NATIONAL DAY RECIPE – JUMBO KNIDDELEN ARRABIATA

Since a few month, Cactus is running its #bewosst campagne promoting their sustainable, organic products. Their PR team sends luxembourgish bloggers products of their organic range to test and talk about. For the luxembourgish National Day, which is the 23rd of June, we celebrate our Grand-Duke Henri’s Birthday (even if he was born in April…) and for this occasion Cactus came up with another cool idea. Bloggers and foodies are invited to create a national dish, with or without a little twist and post it on their blog or social media with the hashtag #granddukesbirthdaymeal and #cactuslu. If you know me a little, you know that I love challenges, so I came up with the idea to cook Kniddelen (mix of flour, water, milk and eggs poured spoon by spoon in boiling water) with arrabiata sauce and to decorate it with a light blue hortensia to reproduce the national flag on a plate.

RECIPE: STRAWBERRY RHUBARB TART & MARGARITAS

Strawberry season has finally arrived and I am proud to announce that you can find my new recipe in the summer edition of KACHEN MAGAZINE, go check out their website for many other cool recipes. I got the chance to write a recipe for this edition trough the blog award that I won back in October 2017. This recipe contains my favourite things: strawberries + margaritas. I love doing margaritas in summer but I wanted to do a special version for the magazine and I ended up mixing it with rhubarb, which is a perfect combo. Also a special thanks to Villeroy & Boch for the Brindille plates and glasses!

SUMMER WISH LIST – PLUS SIZE FASHION

Spring isn’t there yet but all I can think of is my summer trip to Mallorca. I see myself in the pool with a self-made strawberry margarita reading a good book in my brand new bikini. I can also see my sparkling future sandals and a cute off shoulder dress in a vibrant color. I have a gift, yes indeed, I can see the future! Believe me, this is going to happen. I saw a lot of fresh stuff on my favourite shopping sites and since people ask me on Instagram where I buy my clothes and accessories, I thought I coul write a blog post about it. If these things won’t be sold out until I buy them, you will se me in my future pics wearing them.

SODASTREAM INFUSED WATER RECIPES

What do you think about infused water? I find it very refreshing and it’s a great way to drink more water. I mean water is quite boring but if you pimp it with fruit and vegetables you can make healthy cocktails in just a few minutes. SodaStream sent me recently their Sodastream Spirit machine to test it and I have to say that it’s a real plus in my kitchen. Continue reading “SODASTREAM INFUSED WATER RECIPES”

TRIP TO LYON – MY REWARD FROM CACTUS FOR WINNING THE KACHEN BLOG AWARD 2017

As you may have noticed, I didn’t  hide it at all and I was pretty proud of it, back in Oktober I won the Kachen Blog Award for best food blog, main sponsor.  Of course when you are nominated for an award, you hope to win it, but I never thought that I would actually win that thing. I remember talking to my friend during the ceremony, when they introduced the award for best food blog, main sponsor which was Cactus, all my hopes to win where already dead. I was more concearned of my pregnant friend with her high heels how she even managed to stand with those shoes, when I heard my name. I looked on the screen and saw a picture of myself. I won that thing! I remember walking on stage with the biggest smile. I will never forget that moment!

17 THINGS THAT STUCK WITH ME IN 2017

Let me check my planner to see what happened this year. Lots of traveling and exciting changes on the blog. But also grief and the feeling of insecurity. 2017 got to an end so quickly, the older I get, the faster time passes and by saying this I really sound super old. Actually when are you considered old? I am 33 now and I really, really don’t consider myself as old. And I’m not! I can prove it, my skin can prove it! I haven’t one single wrinkle yet. Okay, yes, I am not skinny and skinny people get wrinkles sooner, but who cares! I have to admit that the capacity of my liver to break down the alcohol is more limited than it was some years ago as student but if I only drink champagne it works. Good enough for me!
