Here comes the sun


Very happy with my new beach bag and espadrilles!
All from Sissy Boy, one of my favorite places to shop

Polka dot shakes


Funny idea: stick marshmallow halves to the inside of your glass
before filling with shake.

O My Bag


O, I think these bags from O My Bag are really great! This bag has been on my wishlist for a while now. So I decided, this autumn the bag is mine. What color should I choose?

French Flan tart



For the dough:
230g flour
 100g sugar
 90g butter, room temperature
 1 tblsp vegetable oil
 1 egg


For the filling:
 30g flour
125g sugar
 1 sachet vanilla sugar
3 eggs
 1/2 liter boiling milk

Pre-heat the oven to 180 C.

Mix flour, sugar, butter, oil and egg to a sticky dough. Roll out and use your fingers to spread it out into a 24 cm round cake tin (I layered the bottom with greaseproof paper and made sure the sides were well buttered).
For the filling: beat the eggs in a pan. Add sugar, vanilla, and flour. Add the boiling milk last and turn on the heat. Keep stirring until thick, but don’t let it boil.
Pour the filling on the dough and place in oven for 45 minutes. Check the colour (it should become golden brown) and if the filling stiffens. Cool down before taking it out of the tin.


Bon appetit!

Chocolate


Apple strudel in dark chocolate. That's certainly a golden combination!
Never tried before...It's a pity I'm on a diet

Kitchen stuff

Years ago I worked in a wine shop where they also sold oil and vinegar. Since then I have a small addiction for all types of oils and flavors...I use it for baking and salad dressings. Oh, and I love oysters with red wine vinegar and red onion!! Mmmmm

Tuna salad



I want to lose some weight so I recently started working with a personal trainer at the gym and I eat healthy. Today I didn't have too much time so I have made a tuna salad with pasta.
Quick, healthy and delicious!
