Butternut Squash Soup

I'm not a big fan of soup. Anyone who knows me probably know that. And up until a few weeks ago, the idea of enjoying a bowl of butternut squash soup seemed not at all appetizing to me. That all changed on January 4th! My best friend celebrated her birthday that day, and had prepared [...]

Utrecht: Ellis Gourmet Burger

Introducing my first post in the review category, inspired by yesterday's restaurant visit. Everyone who knows me knows I love a good burger, and I love trying out new burger places. Yesterday we decided to try out Ellis Gourmet Burger in Utrecht, which has only been in business for about 3 months. There were three [...]

The Call of the Void

I'm sure we've all experienced it, I know I have. That niggling voice in the back of your head while driving at high speeds reminding you that just one twist of your arm would be enough to end it all. Or that rush you get when looking down a tall building or cliff that really [...]

Roast Beef

Around Christmas time the local supermarkets are flooded with prime pieces of meat that serve as delectable Christmas meals. Although for now I largely don't have to do any cooking around Christmas, I do like to take advantage of the influx of juicy cuts of meat. Hence, today: Roast beef! This is quite an easy [...]

Stockholm: DreamLeague, Chai Lattes & Dogs with Coats

Last week I visited Stockholm for the first time. Largely due to the fact that my sister was working DreamLeague, so I could crash in her room and save greatly on costs. It was, all in all, great fun, and Stockholm has definitely gotten a warm (or should I say freezing cold!) place in my [...]

A Fly’s Demise

Autumn! I had almost forgotten what it was like. For weeks we were in a sort of mild summer-aftermath where I didn’t feel the need to wear long sleeves, a scarf, or mittens. Well, that time has been and gone. We’ve now thoroughly entered the realm of harsh winds, rain, and early darkness. With the [...]

Ode to Cheese

This is going to sound very stereotypical of me, a Dutch person raving about cheese, but I feel like it might offer some insight for people not from The Netherlands, just how much we Dutchies like cheese. I don't speak for the entire population, but I am sure a lot of Dutch people can relate. [...]

Tartiflette

Tartiflette is an awesome wintery dish from the Savoie region in France. The original recipe requires a reblochon cheese. Since we go skiing in the Savoie once a year, I usually make one tartiflette a year because I like to bring a reblochon home with me. However, instead of a reblochon you could also use [...]

Mom’s Meatballs

As a meatlover, I am a big fan of meatballs. They can be made many different ways and it's fun to try out different ingredients/methods. Back when I lived in student housing, whenever we would do a night of 'everyone bring a dish' I'd bring the meatballs. I became the go-to meatball person. Not totally [...]

Ex-GF [27F] Won’t Stop Harassing Me [30M]

Background: I used to be head over heels in love with ex-GF. We met in high school and were together for almost 4 years. I thought she was the love of my life, that we'd get married, have kids, the whole shebang. Then her career took off. She got moody, was easily stressed and we [...]
