Easy omnom

On New Years Eve we stayed at home with good friends and lots of food. As an appetizer I made these: it’s a puff pastry with anchovies. For our vegetarian guests I replaced the anchovy with Italian dried herbs (Miscuglio from Oil&Vinegar). Easy and fast! If you want to put something homemade on the table but you don’t have a lot of time, this is perfect!


  1. unroll your puff pastry dough (I bought mine premade, but you can make it from scratch if you want) on baking paper
  2. poke some holes in the dough with a fork
  3. cut the dough in long strips, cut the large strips horizontal again
  4. open the anchovies and place one on every strip (or sprinkle dried herbs instead)
  5. glaze the top with a beaten egg
  6. heath the oven to 220°C, bake the strips for 30min until the dough is puffed and golden brown
  7. let it cool down and enjoy!

Best dessert ever!

When we get tired and annoyed of shopping the best thing to do is: sit down, relax and have a great dessert! And this one is! At the bottom there are cold apple pieces (pre-cooked in sugar water) coverd with vanilla custard and meringue. The lemon zest makes it al come together: sweet, sour and fresh! Rush to “Smaaksalon” in Hasselt (BE). Also enjoy the beautiful building!
