I let my domain expire

When I started this blog, a year ago, I had a goal in mind. I would give myself one year to make this into a blog that at least paid for its own existence. Eventually, I wanted it to grow into something that might earn me a small income on the side. To achieve my…

Fresh Veggies

The pandemic had me staying in voluntary self isolation for a long while, but eventually I got completely fed up with not being able to do my own shopping. It’s a right pain in the arse when you order your groceries and then things go wrong with your order – as happens all too often….

Slow Cooker Rhubarb Crumble

I’m a fan of crumbles. Apple crumble is my go-to, as apples are always readily available here, and it’s a great way to use up those apples I was never going to eat raw anyway. I’m also a fan of rhubarb, but sadly rhubarb is only available during the early days of summer. And even…

Schär White Bread

I went to the supermarket the other day, as I really wanted to try this loaf of gluten free bread that was on offer (I’ve never been a big fan of bread, and going gluten free hasn’t helped in that department either.) Though I picked up my groceries at the supermarket the other day, this…

How Corona changed my life

It was February. I celebrated my birthday. I found a new apartment. And at the end of the month the first reports about the corona virus reached my ears. I wasn’t particularly worried. After all, it was no worse than a bad flu, eh? So life went on as usual. Well, not quite, as I…

Instant Pot Colcannon

Last weekend, on Meal Prep Day, I had chili for lunch. With enough leftover for at least two suppers. I also had potatoes that needed using up. And I had a whole cabbage, so I figured colcannon might be a good idea. Now, I never made – or, in fact, even had – that before,…

Sunday Morning

It’s Sunday morning. I’m sat on the couch, with two of my cats, listening to some good music. Life is good.

Instant Pot Chili

Today is meal prep day again. So far, I cooked chickpeas, made two batches of hummus, a bottle of iced tea and a nice pot of vegan chili. I seriously love chili and could eat it every day. It’s one of my samefoods. My chili is made with dried red kidney beans, because why spend…

Chapter 2

Today I’m doing just a quick reblog from my fantasy blog. I’m working hard on that story and things are going quite well. I also set up my author page on Facebook, in case you’d like to follow me there: Daan katz, Author. Because, you know, stories matter. And it seems to me, that now,…
