Homemade chicken soup -- deliciously healthy and healing
A few weeks ago I posted about Ava being sick, and about our 'sick day' family traditions. I loved reading about all of your families' sick-day traditions too, and I thought it was especially amazing to hear that most of us still remember being sick as a child ourselves. We seem to have such warm ...

A quick and easy nourishing Soda Bread
I love baking bread with the girls especially this time of year when the days are getting shorter and slower. There is nothing quite like the smell of bread warming through the house.

The very best spaghetti carbonara (unanimously voted by my children!)
My children are very good eaters and they all have quite an extensive list of their favourite foods. But spaghetti carbonara is definitely in the top 3 for all five of them. (I say five, because I'm pretty sure it's on Bram's list as well, even though he hasn't even started solids yet.) I don't make ...

Red beet greens and goat cheese quiche. Delicious!
Once a year our supermarket hands out sacs of seeds for children to collect. Our kids love collecting these, so now our greenhouse and garden are overflowing with vegetables. Including tons of red beets, which I love. Before leaving on our big trip, I was roasting them in batches and keeping them in the fridge, ...

Bulgur salad with three seeds, the perfect summer dish
This bulgur salad is such a thankful dish to make! It's the perfect companion to any kind of main but we've mostly been eating it with grilled vegetables, cheese, fish or meat. It has a lovely taste (nutty, fresh and creamy) and an interesting texture. It can be prepared beforehand and keeps in the fridge for ...

Homemade sourdough bread, delicious and healthy. Here's how!
I recently received interesting post from England -- a little plastic bag with a grey brownish 'blub' inside. This 'blub' was highly anticipated as it happens to be a sourdough starter -- a culture of naturally occurring bacteria and yeast which can be used to bake delicious and healthy homemade sourdough bread. We have since ...

A delicious and easy-to-make tomato salsa. The perfect summer recipe!
A friend of ours makes the most delicious tomato salsa, and I've asked him the recipe at least 5 times in the past and have always written it down somewhere, only to loose the note immediately after. They always disappear! So it's become the joke that his recipe is meant to be secret, even without ...

Little Tables -- Breakfasts from around the World
According to this article, Dutch children enjoy one of the happiest childhoods in the world, and one of the reasons given for this is the fact that many of them start their morning with 'hagelslag' (chocolate sprinkles) on their bread. I'm not sure how much influence the exact sort of breakfast has on the overall happiness of ...
