Years ago I saw a Dutch commercial about a guy working on a tropical beach with his laptop. That looked amazing and I knew I wanted to do that one day. And I did, but it wasn’t the same as what I saw on the commercial! That is why I want to clear a few … Continue reading Travel, work and a pandemic
A negative mindset is often a build up of things. Maybe a bad situation you are in, things that bother you but that are not talked about, or things you are annoyed by. How can you keep a positive attitude towards things when sometimes it feels as if there is nothing to be positive about? … Continue reading A positive mindset
Time for another recipe! One based on sweet potato. I am not the biggest fan of sweet potato, but Paul bought it, so I am slowly getting used to it. There is just something about warm sweet food for dinner that I can’t really digest very well, unless it's cake!!! Yum!! As you know I … Continue reading Sweet potato lentil soup (including recipe)
Since I was a teenager I always loved taking photos, but in those days a digital camera didn’t exist. We still had the cameras with film, and developing photos wasn’t cheap either.

A short post today, as I am going to share a recipe for tomato soup with you! As a child I didn’t really like soup. I mean, we ate soup, but it was never my favorite meal. It felt like it wasn’t a ‘real’ meal. I like hearty meals. That is probably why my father’s … Continue reading My roasted tomato soup
It’s funny how taste can change. As an adult I never really cared for cakes and sweets. I always preferred savory snacks (still do), but there is something about cupcakes that makes me feel happy inside. My obsession with cupcakes started a couple of years ago.
