Mamma mia!

I've got a newfound passion... Making pasta! Simple but delicious spaghetti, luscious tagliatelli and ravioli or tortellini with the richest of fillings. Not saying I'm any good at it yet, but boy, I love the way I can just focus on the dough and what to fill it with without thinking about anything else.

Nothing better...

than an awesome breakfast. I mean: look at these colours! I've been feeling kinda blugh the last couple of days, so I went to the doctor's yesterday. She told me to take some medicine but more importantly: to rest. And nothing better to re-energize than kickstarting your day, with a vibrant, delicious and healthy breakfast.

On the booket list

Plenty of space for some more books, right?

Not a bucket list, but a booket list this time. Inspired by the Antwerp book fair and the fact I've been carrying around a cookbook all week (if anyone knows why, please let me know), I've drawn up a list of the cookbooks I'd love to add to my small collection. Mmm this list makes me greedy. And hungry.

Never trust a skinny Italian chef

Thank God I'm not Italian then, but only pretending to be. Last Saturday night I had the plan to make homemade pasta. Had never tried it before, so of course I was pretty determined to nail my first ever batch of tortellini. Gotta say: homemade pasta, pumpkin/sage/parmesan filling on fleek. And then it hit me.

What happened to Indian summer?

I feel fall in the air! And I can't only feel it: I definitely see it as well. Feels as if summer's already ages ago, and I have no idea what I've done in between. Might be because I was in Portugal the week when Indian summer decided to call it quits. Can't hear me complaining though. Wanna know what I love about fall?
