My Posts


Marvelous Monday {in love with my canon}

This weeks “Marvelous Monday” featured my new DSLR! I had so much fun shooting everything in sight – what’s not able to jump out of the picture, thanks Jay 😉 He’s quite camera shy, other than me, obviously.




Food For Thought {sometimes you have to be reckless}


On Tuesday I shared my thoughts in a more serious topic. Is being reckless sometimes the wise thing to do? I shared three personal experiences in which to my opinion it’s better to be reckless than to regret it in the long run.


What I Ate Wednesday {kind of strange}


“What I Ate Wednesday/Tuesday” was a strange one. Getting through a day at the company I started writing my master thesis in, though I knew I would be quitting this week was killing my appetite – I made up for it with a huge comfort food ‘linner’.


Turkey Meatball Soup {light and easy dinner}

light meatball soup

On Thursday, after a way easier and friendlier resignation than I apprehended, I finally got back into the recipe groove. Having a DSLR and not using it to make the most beautiful food pictures would have been a shame. So to get back into actual cooking I started of with a light, paleo and gluten-free, soup.

Step By Step Recipes {tuna cherry tomato scramble}

And since I was already at it. Why not make a second recipe on Saturday, after enjoying Friday of? I started a new series on HN: Step By Step Recipes for beginners and hope to make some more of them in the future. I am always open for recipe suggestions.
