Harissa and Chickpea Tagine -- a fantastic plant-based family dinner
This vegetable tagine makes the most fantastic, flavoursome midweek family meal, especially if, like many people, you are aiming to eat a little more plant-based or meat-free. It takes 5 minutes to put together and then sits in the oven for a little under an hour cooking into this deliciousness!  I personally have a big soft ...

Oh my Darling Clementine Cake
Clementine cake It's clementine season! How pretty they look in the fruit bowl -- especially if you can find them with the leaves on. And how convenient to bring along as a snack, or to pack in a lunchbox. I'm a big clementine fan! Since I had a bag of ground almonds laying around that ...

15 of our favourite Autumn Recipes
Baking and Autumn seem to go hand in hand. It is a great way to warm up the home, and the belly! : ) And as days get shorter and colder, baking with warm spices and tart fruits just seems right whether it is pies, cakes, breads, or biscuits. So we wanted to share our ...

Baked Portobello Mushrooms -- a simple, delicious meal
I love this time of year when the autumn produce is showing itself in the markets. The apples are golden, the pears are ripe and the abundance of mushrooms are being picked from the land. We've been enjoying the mushrooms so much lately. Last week we made a gorgeous mushroom soup from the prettiest of ...

Perfect Pumpkin Bread
If you want the very perfect baked version of Autumn, then this moist, colourful (I want to wear that colour!) pumpkin bread is for you. And as much as I love Autumn and all things apple, (apple pie, apple cake, apple turnovers, apple crisp, you get the idea), there is something about pumpkin that is ...

The Little Things: Apple picking and traditional Dutch apple pie
It's been over a year since our last The Little Things post! Maud had a little baby boy called Max in the meantime, and you know, life has been overall so very busy. But we both love these little projects of ours, so I'm super happy to finally share a new The Little Things story ...

Classic French Fruit Tarte
This year is a year of plums in the French countryside – the trees are falling over with them!! I tried to vary a little bit from my usual solution to this 'problem', which is to bake a clafoutis every day. This year, I tried one of the most traditional French desserts: a fruit tarte. The great ...

Delicious apple muffins
On sunny weekend mornings, when the weather is nice and the waves are forecasted to be good, we hurry up with our breakfast, load the surfboards and beach bags into the car, and head to the beach! It's become one of my favourite things about living here -- that we can spend so much time ...

Apple picking and cake baking
We arrived to my family's beach house on Bainbridge Island last week on a rainy, stormy Friday. From inside, we could see the apple trees behind the house were laden with fruit. So while the rain came down, we sat inside and schemed up things we could bake with all those apples. We decided on apple cake, so I ...

Apple Streusel Kuchen
A lot of things surprised my parents when they first moved to Germany as a young couple (no music playing between 12-3pm everyday, no greeting random strangers on the streets), but there was one custom they adopted immediately: the Sunday afternoon cake. The Sunday afternoon cake was, and hopefully still is, one of the best ...

Vegetable Lasagne
We have spent the summer enjoying ourselves and indulging in saucisson, paté, sausages, cheese and bread -- as you would if you are on holiday in France. But I am now craving vegetables so badly! I have spent bit of time browsing the internet for new recipes (as I am a little bit bored of ...

Instant Apple Crumble
At the moment, mostly governed by the cold, dark nights, we feel like we deserve something nice and warm, and apple crumble is a firm favourite. I have developed a little technique about making a super easy apple crumble. We make a huge batch of crumble and then freeze most of it. Then it is ...

The Little Things... a Pumpkin Soup recipe

A simple, warming Pumpkin soup
After five years of living in France, I am still surprised how one can guess the season by the fruit and vegetables being sold at the market and the green grocers. Strawberries and asparagus announce the beginning of summer, cherries and green beans follow closely after. Plums mean that summer is nearing an end and ...
