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 😉

I see you’ve found my blog 🙂 I can almost hear you stutter: “But… there’s no content yet?” Well [insert your name here], here’s the thing: I usually am a very organised person. I like to make lists and plan ahead, and here I am thinking of a blog name out of the blue. I had to make sure “Alive and Cooking” was not registered yet (it was, so I added ‘stay’ in front of it) and now I’m scared that you’re gonna leave me, thinking I’m just another blog that only picks a name and then sits there for ages thinking of something, anything to write about, if I don’t post a quick hello.
My name is Vivian, I’m a 20 year old girl from the Netherlands and am currently on a break from studying. (No, not because I’m lazy, will explain more in later post) This leaves me with a lot of time, which I like to spend cooking! Of course, I have a lot of other hobbies and whatnot, but that is all for a later stage to discuss.
My goal is to fill this page up with cooking experiments, the good and the bad (even though I don’t like admitting it didn’t work out as planned!), life changing moments (gosh, don’t I sound original) and maybe even some wisdom along the way. Will you follow me on this journey?
Of course, this takes some getting used to. Having to set goals and write stuff even if you don’t feel up for it might feel a bit like school, which is what I’m trying to avoid (raise your hands if you’re with me on this one) but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it eventually. After all, I’ve written a blog before when I was on an internship in Sydney, Australia for half a year! Really enjoyed the comments, so don’t be shy to let me know what you think.
I promise I will write some more enjoyable stuff next time!
See ya 🙂
