Jeannie CameronAmsterdam, NL
I graduated from Art Academy in illustration, typography, and stop-motion animation. After graduation I worked as a freelance illustrator for women's and children's magazines. Then I started combining illustration with graphic design so I could decide myself how my illustrations were used, even branching out into art-direction of several magazines, including a children's food magazine. I work from my home-studio as a freelancer, which was fantastic while bringing up two boys - and surround myself with all kinds of collections, like my memory collection, which are all a great inspiration to me. Nowadays I love combining illustration, design, collage and (hand)lettering in my work, and love to collaborate with anyone wanting beautiful, fun designs. I love designing websites, brochures, postcards, food- and other illustrations and handlettering.
I also work with my sister Beryl as Twocookies, on a food and cooking theme, called Twocookiesdesign. In 2015 we started challenging each other to complement the other's design, so we each created half of the picture. We call this Twocookiesbacktoback and for this we use other themes as well, like fashion, gardening, health, crafts, travel and of course food.

This is my second Pantry Pickings - as during lockdown I was drawing all my kitchen stuff already! I love showing you all the international stuff in my kitchen - living in Amsterdam, surrounded by all kinds of shops selling their own kind of food which often comes in wonderful looking packages and tins. Enjoy my Pantry Pickings!!
I was just working on a series of packages and tins in my kitchen that I hadn't drawn during the Pantry Art Project in January, when you came up with Wanna Play Along - this is the work I love most, so yay, I'm playing along!
BEANS AROUND THE WORLD. I love beans! Here are the cooking times for the beans on your list, according to my bean ingredients book. (And I've also left room for a fold, although that might not have been necessary), along with some bean fun facts and some info.
For the Birthday Bash challenge! I always used to make this Birthday Breakfast dish for our boys when they were small - liked them myself too, hah, yummy!! (This is also my 18th recipe for TDAC! And an adaptation of an earlier recipe for French Toast))
for the Peanut Butter Lovers contest!
I love peanut butter used in a spicy sauce or as a spicy soup! This is an Indonesian recipe often eaten in the Netherlands, where you can actually buy spicy peanut butter mix to make this sauce. Gado Gado actually means Mix Mix, because of all the vegetables you can use - covered with this lovely warm peanut sauce.Yummy!!
After I submitted my last recipe 'Spicy Tomato and Harissa Soup", on my birthday I was given a huge box by a friend filled with the recipe and all the ingredients you need to make your own harissa. I have drawn all the ingredients that were in that box and written down the recipe. The ingredients are Turkish, Greek, Italian, Dutch, French and Spanish - how international can you get?
Hi Salli & Nate! This is my September spicy recipe. This is a recipe I often make as a gift for friends who like spicy stuff. You can fill a masonjar in any size when the chutney is hot. Turn the jar upside down and leave to cool to create a vacuum. You can then keep it for months! Hope you like it! Jean C
