I'm back!
































Ik ben weer terug na een heerlijke vakantie! Ik heb maar een foto genomen die over eten gaat en dat is deze, omdat we daar zo heerlijk aan het water zaten. Voor de rest heb ik vooral genoten van het landschap en me niet bezig gehouden met wat ik op mijn blog kon zetten. Na drie weken weg te zijn geweest werd ik in de tuin verrast met heerlijke dingen die we meteen konden eten!

I'm back from a wonderful holiday! I only took one picture about food and that is this one, because it was such a lovely spot at the water where we could eat. I enjoyed to landscape and I didn't think about what I could do for my blog. After 3 weeks away from home my garden surprised me with some delicious things we could eat right away!

I take a little break and visit (again;-)) the north of Europe. I already wish everyone a nice summer and I'll be back in July. See you in a couple of weeks!

bloei en groei!
















































De lente is er natuurlijk al een tijdje en eind Maart begin ik meestal met het voorzaaien van de tomaten, paprika's, chili's en komkommers. Nu is het al Mei en na wat behoorlijk koude dagen, breekt ondertussen geregeld de zon door. De eerste radijsjes en tuinkers heb ik al op en werd het ook tijd om de broccoli, erwt en courgette naar buiten te planten (sommige toch echt van de AH-moestuintjes actie en ze doen het prima;-)) Nu hopen dat alles mooi blijft groeien en we een fijne zomer krijgen, zodat ik de foto's van de groenten ook kan plaatsen!

Of course spring is already here for some time and mostly I begin to sow tomatoes, peppers, chili-peppers and cucumber by the end of March inside. Now May is here and we had some pretty cold days but now the sun has some chances too, luckily! I already ate the first radish and garden cress and it became time to plant broccoli, peas and zucchini outside. So hopefully everything grows well and we have a nice summer, so I can also post some pictures of the vegetables!

mango-kokos-chocolade truffels

















































English version of the recipe (mango-coconut-chocolate truffle)

- put 200 gr. grated coconut in a blender or kitchen machine and let it run for about 10 minutes so the coconut turns into a kind of butter/creme.
- peel of the skin of one big mango and cut into pieces. Add to the coconut and mix very well.
- add two tablespoons honey, add some more if you want it sweeter.
- make round balls out of the mixture, use a big spoon if you like. If the mixture is to wet, add some more grated coconut so the mixture will stick better.

! put the truffles add least two hours into the freezer.

- melt 150 gr. pure chocolate (I use chocolate with 92% cacao and coconut blossom sugar) au bain marie.
- use two spoons or two forks and dip the truffles into the chocolate and cover them with the chocolate.
- put the truffles on some bakery paper.
- the truffles taste the best if you put them in the refrigerator and serve them if you just get them out.
- recipe for about 20 truffles.
