Raspberry, Lemon and Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve been telling myself all year that I’ll start blogging again. And since my motto is ‘better late than never’, I might as well give it a go. At the very least I managed to fix my rather old camera. So after a very relaxing (and windy) bike ride this morning I decided to fire…

Spinach, Chicken and Bacon Quiche

[insert something about New Year’s Resolutions] It’s quiche time again! I bought a bag of fresh spinach and it was about to go back, so I decided to make a quiche again. Every time I make a quiche I wonder why I don’t make them more often. They’re great as dinner, lunch, snack or whatever….

Leek, Mushroom and Bacon Quiche

Time for a new recipe (at last)! I didn’t exactly stop baking the past few months, but it was usually quite rushed and at times that taking decent pictures is near impossible (I do not like the winter). Quite a bit has happened since the last time I posted a blog. I am currently working…

Kiwi Bavarois Banana Cake

Been away for too long etc. etc. But enough about that, time for a new recipe!! The new series of the Dutch version of the Great British Bake Off has started again. While they keep turning down my application, I still rather enjoy watching. And not just because I give a running commentary about everything…

Millionaire’s Shortbread

De goddelijke Huisman blog is over a year old now. And while I do have to admit I have had more active periods of baking, but I do still bake something once every while. Even bought a new oven recently, so now I have two ovens!! Millionaire’s shortbread is one of the easiest, and most…

Palm Sunday Bread Figures

It’s been a while since I posted anything over here. I once read somewhere that as a blogger you should never try to explain why you were gone for a while. So I’ll just summarize it for you guys: life happened. Well, now that’s out of the way we can get onto more important stuff:…

Aubergine Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake

Tomorrow it’s that most hateful of days again: Valentine’s Day. It’s hateful for people who are single because it gives you the impression that you are a failure for being on your own (even worse if you do ~like someone but are not with that person). And it’s equally hateful for people who are in…

Banana and Chocolate Cheesecake

The Winter Olympics have started!! Even though the opening ceremony was utterly dull (it’s what happens when you combine sentiment from the 1950s with technology from the 2010s) I abso-fucking-lutely love the Olympic Games. So the next few weeks I’ll be watching an awful lot of tv. Because of the crappy time difference most of…

Apple, Caramel and Hazelnut Bar

Currently in my third week of being caffeine and alcohol free because of the drugs trial. The no alcohol thing is just annoying at best, but the no caffeine thing is getting to me. I don’t drink coffee, so that’s not the problem. And while caffeine free coke and herbal tea are starting to bore…

Lemon Pudding

I’m sure it’s not allowed to do this anymore, but I don’t give a fuck: HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE!! I started the year off by getting locked away for 5 days while they perform medical experiments on me. Okay, okay, I signed up for it and get paid for it. And it is really rather…

Ice Cream Tiramisu

It’s almost Christmas!! The time of terrible sweaters, Christmas lights and over-eating is almost over.. Going back to my hometown today, going to watch Love Actually with my big sis tonight, church tomorrow morning and then it’s time to overindulge in unhealthy foods (ran a half marathon on Sunday to pro-actively get rid of the…

Yule Log

First proper Christmas recipe! And quite possibly also the last, don’t know that many typical Christmas recipes. In the spirit of Christmas (and in the spirit of an overly full freezer) I gave most of this away to my neighbours and most of them seemed to like it. Don’t have many exciting plans for Christmas….
