I’ve found a new love for roasted vegetables and this is definitely a great recipe! And so easy, too: just clean the green beans, cut the onion and garlic, toss this in an oven dish with the balsamic vinegar and some olive oil and then into the oven for 25 minutes: done!
Green beans are a vegetable I don’t nearly eat enough. That is definitely going to change now, as I got so much inspiration from cooking this dish… Did you see my green bean and tomato quiche yet?

Hi there, my favourite readers and blogger friends! Today I’m going to start with a post I’d like to bring back more often: food talk! This is a chance for me to get to know you, and to give an update of what’s going on in my life. I’ll share some of my favourite blog posts from the internet, some cool recipes or Instagram updates… Who knows!
I was at my parent’s place when I found these AMAZING vintage (real real real vintage from mothers great aunt or something) teacups etc. and I decided it was time for a little photography practising 😉 I made some tea and took everything outside in the sun! And you have to admit it looks sort of British, those teacups and saucers… That’s why I figured “How do you do?” would be the perfect title! *insert British accent*

Pasta has got to be my favourite dish. I mean, pasta can be so many things, right?! It could be a lasagne, it could be macaroni with lovely red sauce and vegetables or it could be this version, for example. This dish contains many vegetables but also that delicious saltiness of fried minced meat. Trust me: you will love this!
This dish originated when the boyfriend and I made pasta with leftovers. We had some broccoli and mushrooms lying around and decided to mix this together with some cream cheese and pesto: yumm! Today I share with you an updated version, without the pesto but with some other touches instead. Only €1,40 per portion!

Woohoo! It’s sort of Spring! I decided to celebrate by making a lighter and thinner green bean and tomato quiche. It’s easypeasy and delicious.. What’s not to love?
Sometimes I just sort of invent recipes out of the blue. Love it when that happens! This recipe “happened” because they were out of asparagus in the store. Hey if it brings inspiration, who cares? Asparagus season has not officially started in the Netherlands yet so I’ve still got time for my original recipe. Get excited!
