I've made this fancy cocktail several times for several people who were all in the same situation: diarrhea and/or vomiting. And not just for a time or two, but some were suffering for a couple of days or about eight times in one day. First of all, neither is nice to go through. Second, you … Continue reading Levanta Defunto Cocktail
'Twas the season of Ayaka. And this year I finally, finished my own recipe. It's now the fifth year in a row that I'm making these lovelies. But what are these lovelies exactly? Well, if you hadn't heard about them yet, Ayaka is a typical dish eaten in Curaçao during the December holiday season. Especially … Continue reading Tashmyn’s Ayaka
Chlash of The Tostas
As you can see in our beautiful clashing photos here below, this recipe's name couldn't be more perfect. The other half of this wipe-out's name is Chloé, a dear friend of mine. And after one of our surf sessions in Faro we decided to go for a toastie or Tosta in Portuguese. We didn't want … Continue reading Chlash of The Tostas

These croquettes were very easy to make and I managed to enjoy them for 3 days. … Continue reading Mackerel Croquettes
Quinoa Cauliflower Burgers
The original recipe was actually given to me by a friend who made a vegan version. I wasn’t very patient in mashing the ingredients properly together, so I added two eggs to make the burgers less falling-apart-ish. Also the original has less seasoning and ingredients and instead of cauliflower it has courgette. But ok, this … Continue reading Quinoa Cauliflower Burgers
New Year’s Eve Oliebollen
It's the last day of the year and that means Oliebollen! This is a typical Dutch dish and tradition which I have grown fond of. I like mine when they are warm, have a crust and are filled with alcohol soaked raisins. Oh and when they are topped with a tiny mountain of powdered sugar! … Continue reading New Year’s Eve Oliebollen
