Hello dear reader,
If there is one thing you absolutely have to learn when you’re into cooking, it’s preparing a great soup from scratch. After all, those soups out of a tin just don’t cut it… Once you get the hang of it you’ll be cooking up delicious homemade soups in no time!
I like to prepare a soup every week. My favourites vegetables to cook a soup from are broccoli, paprika, cauliflower (yes, really!), and of course tomatoes. Yesterday I prepared this beautiful roasted tomato soup with loads of basil and some balsamic vinegar and I will be sharing this recipe with you today. We ate it with some bread, herb cheese and creamy goats cheese, yumm!
I’m having a bit of a bad day today so the only thing that helps is spending a lot of time in the kitchen, naturally! I’ve already prepared some really tasty granola, some deliciously creamy hummus and I’m baking some tomatoes in the oven for a roasted tomato soup as we speak. Recipe will follow soon 😉
But first: the hummus. Since it was the first time I prepared it, I used this recipe from +Chickslovefood for inspiration (I’m sorry, it’s in Dutch!) and measurements. I added some personal touches and it ended up being so good… My advice: eat it on a cracker with some thinly sliced chicken breast and some fresh veggies such as lettuce, or cucumber. Tasty!
Today I will share with you some of the things we’ve learned when visiting Rome. There are some things you should avoid and some things you definitely shouldn’t: so I thought I’d write about my experiences! If there’s anything you think I should add, feel free to let me know.
Hi guys! I promise this time I will finish writing about our journey, haha. Continue reading if you’d like to know what we’ve done on Thursday!
(Hint: it includes monkeys and cats. If that doesn’t get you curious I don’t know what will)
Hi again! Thanks for reading my blog 🙂
This entry will contain day three in Rome, which only leaves the fourth day to write about. (Read Part One here) It was such a wonderful day: we visited the Vatican city and saw so much more, we behaved like true tourists and ate some great food!

Sorry, no picture of this tasty home-made lasagne I speak of: the smell of it made us too eager to dig in! I guess you’ll have to take my word for it 😉 let me tell you; this creamy, cheesy, salty yet subtly flavoured combination is to die for…
For students, cooking can sometimes be a challenge. Whether it is because you have to eat dry bread until your next student allowance is deposited into your bank account, or because you simply have no idea what to cook or how to cook it… I’m sure we’ve all been there at least once. This is why my first recipe will be a budget; and fool-proof but extremely tasty home-made lasagne!
I think it’s time for me to tell a bit more about myself. After all, today is a gloomy, sad and rainy day here in the Netherlands so what else am I gonna do 😉
