Archives for category: What’s cooking tonight?

Here is my easy potato and leek soup recipe.


My cupboard ingredients for 4-6 servings

4 large potatoes

1 large leek or 2 medium leeks

1 chicken broth cube

800 ml of water

Salt (again I like to use Guérande’s pure sea salt)


  1. Bring water to a boil with a pinch of salt and the chicken broth cube
  2. When boiling add the chopped potatoes and sliced leeks
  3. Lower the temperature so that it simmers for 45 minutes
  4. When ready, mix well with a hand mixer

If it is to eat as a full meal I recommend to serve the soup with one or two cheese-grilled toasts (a nice country multi-grain bread will do the trick topped with cheddar or mozzarella) on the side.




For our 6 1/2 year anniversary Haris and I decided to cook together tonight.  He was craving my yummy bolognese and my friend Kirsty inspired me to cook muffins.

Combine the two, and you’ve got a Sunday dinner.

The full recipes will come soon.  In the meantime, salivate 😉



















Tonight we had the classic parma ham and figs, lovely!


Recipe to come!

Here is the outcome:

While waiting for our BBQ fire to be ready, we are enjoying a tiny mojito and to fill up our stomachs I always like to serve a little something.

Tonight it’s very mediterranean: feta and basil toasts drizzled with virgin olive oil and lime juice

Me hard at work while Haris is preparing the fire…

Have a glimpse!  With my left overs of chicken and pork sausages as well as last night’s rice, making a lovely paella.  I am sure we’ll have loads of yummy leftovers too…

Check out the video!

Oh and sorry about the dirty looking stove, the soup has kind of been over flowing for the past 25 minutes, oops, just reduced the heat.  A good scrubbing awaits for me!
