It’s MONDAY which means it’s time for my third video/recipe! I’ve never been this excited by Mondays before… Today I share a great & super simple recipe, which is literally done in 5 minutes. And it’s still super tasty! I show you how in a 1-minute video.

Quick Dinner Dishes

Even though I have all the time of the world for cooking, I know most of my readers aren’t as lucky. I started this site to show students that cooking good food doesn’t have to be hard, but I feel like I rarely post any easy-done in no time recipes anymore!

One of my friends asked me if I had any inspiration for a dinner that was tasty but quick. The first thing that came to mind is gnocchi, which cooks in 2 minutes. Make a super simple sauce and combine that all together: can’t be any easier than that, right?! I was so enthusiastic that I decided to put it on my to-cook list for the next week. And I made a video out of it, too!

YouTube

In case you haven’t been to my site at all in the last two weeks, here’s a little update: I am on YouTube! Super exciting. I’ve made three videos so far, and they all take around 1 minute to show you some of my favourite recipes. I’ve been able to ask questions to my vlogger-cousin (haha), whom you can find here.

  1. Great video, Vivian!! I have had videos on my to-do list for a while, but I have yet to muster the courage, so thanks for the wonderful inspiration! Now gnocchi, OMG one of my favorite things EVER. I seriously could eat gnocchi daily if my waistline would allow it! This looks wonderful! Love that tomato pesto sauce and I love how quick and easy this is! Cheers!

    1. Woohooo thanks Cheyanne! I think it’s a great way to reach a new audience – take my brother for example, he’d NEVER read one of my recipes but once it’s in video form… Haha! Thank you for your kind comment 🙂 x

  2. Ziet er heel lekker uit! Ik wil Gnocci ook zo graag binnenkort een keertje zelf maken, lijkt me super leuk.. Dankjewel voor het delen van het recept voor deze saus.

    Liefs, Merel

    1. Dat heb ik een keertje geprobeerd, ging iets anders dan gepland! Het is op zich vrij simpel maar bij mij bleef het heel erg aan m’n handen plakken, haha. Leuk dat je even langs kwam!
