Greece is full of iconic imagery of food, their history and landmarks...here is an illustrated story of the many things that are wonderful about Greece. Creating this spread conjured up the memory of eating an authentic Greek salad at a little beachside restaurant on the island of Zakynthos! Beautiful vistas and lovely flavors!
When I discovered chive blossoms in my local weekly CSA, I wanted to try something different... so a beautiful, simple to make, wonderfully pink vinegar came to be! This would make a unique gift for that foodie or hostess you know!
Growing up in the Netherlands we ate many traditional “mash-up” meals, but this recipe is one that ticks all the happy boxes for me! Translated to English it means “Farmer’s cabbage” or as one of my nieces says “Kale Mash”. A warm comfort on a chilly day while thinking about the beautiful Dutch countryside that I miss.
The better the bread...the better the toast. There is something satisfying about the humble, simple slice of bread that is perfectly toasted and slathered with creamy butter. You can of course upgrade to make it as fancy as you wish...but sometimes simple is sublime!
This illustration started to look a bit like camouflage and army fatigues...so I decided to run with it and title it Broccoli...lean green machine! Well it does fuel your body with good for you vitamins and minerals...so eat up!
Hugs and Kisses and sweets for your sweetheart...yummy chocolate covered strawberries, an assortment of decadently iced and sprinkled donuts and some sweetheart candies scattered about with loving messages... Happy Valentine’s Day...but I’d certainly like this any other time of the year!
Have you heard of the nickname for beets, dirt candy? Well...they do roast up sweet and delicious and are tasty hot, warm or cold. Eat them with butter, salt and pepper or quick pickle them with a simple vinegar brine and add some red onions to make a colorful side dish. Yum!
This refreshing and creamy combination of seafood and juicy fruit is an explosion of textures and flavors for your tastebuds. It makes a great appetizer or even a light supper when served on a more substantial bed of greens.
Here’s an alternative to oatmeal or porridge. This recipe is a fun and different way to warm up your breakfast routine. Plus who can resist the smell of apples and cinnamon? Make this a vegan treat and add maple syrup instead of honey to sweeten your bowl!
A playfully illustrated “Alphabet” that spells out the words Holiday Sweets and highlights a few tasty foods we might associate with celebrating and of course everything is held together by Sugar! I’m ready for the Wassail and a slice of the Yule Log, while I make some Clove studded Oranges!
Rich, creamy, dark and sweet, crunchy, minty...love to eat! Super duper easy to make Candy cane chocolate bark. Makes a great homemade gift and you can switch up the flavors and add so many yummy things to make chocolate bark..try dried fruit, nuts and seeds, spices, candies, pretzels and whatever you want!
A rustic savory tart loaded with umami flavors to serve with a side salad for a unique dinner or cut into small pieces for hors d'oeuvres or an appetizer. The illustrations were done for They Draw and Cook’s inktober challenge 2020.
Here’s the iconic popcorn bucket bursting with freshly popped corn for a poppin’ good birthday bash...maybe you celebrate with a group of friends at the movies or have a popcorn party at home with lots of fun custom toppings. You can try different salts, melted chocolate, caramel, Parmesan cheese, mix in nuts and dried fruit and so much more...let your celebration begin!
