About

Hello there, and thank you for joining me at my dinner table… or my first blog…  I love cooking for friends (and family, but I rarely do…), creating menus, thinking up table decorations, and I love getting excited about it all, even the stress that it sometimes includes. However, I don’t cook for other people as often as I’d like, so mostly it’s just dinner for (n)one in this household.

I’m a food blog junkie – it’s amazing what (you) people come up with! -, recipe collector, and hobby cook/baker.  Luckily I’m surrounded by very appreciative people who seem to enjoy eating whatever I create in my kitchen – even though most of the time my motto is “no risk, no fun”.

I also love beautiful household and lifestyle items, from paper napkins to dishes to oven gloves… and other (un)necessary things.

When I noticed I was starting to talk to myself in the kitchen, I decided it might be time to start this “blogging thing”. Because let’s face it – mumbling to yourself sounds kooky, whereas putting something in writing seems more respectable…

If you’ve found this blog, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’ll be interested enough to come back!

Update:
I’m always happy to hear about someone trying out my recipes. When I try other people’s recipes and blog about it, I either do that referring to the respective blog for the recipe and do not publish it myself, or I ask permission from them.  In both cases, I link to their post.  Which is why I’d appreciate it if people asked before posting my recipes 1:1 or copying my pictures to their blog, especially as I have a copyright notice clearly visible on my homepage.  I am a firm believer in netiquette, so thank you for your understanding!

If in doubt where adaptation ends and plagiarism starts, read this interesting article by David Lebovitz on recipe attribution.
