Happy Friday!

Hello, how are you doing? I’ll be spending the weekend in Amsterdam with friends and I coulnd’t be happier.
I’m happy to report that the resolution I made for 2017, eliminating cooking as a chore and taking things as easy as they come, is working! We are eating loads of simple meals such as roasted vegetables with a cheese platter or mayonnaise, soups and pasta salads.
This in contrast to a lot of last-minute cooking that I did last year, which – I suppose – just crept in over the course of a couple of months. Having reset the button makes it even better to enjoy slow, easy evenings when possible.

Before signing off, I am happy to share the links that made me smile this week.

How beautiful are these underwater photos? Or these stunning visions of our planet?

Advice to my younger self. “And for heaven’s sake, let yourself really fail once in a while — not some tiny little mistakes here and there, but big, glaring, confidence-shaking, dark-night-of-the-soul-inducing failures.”

It’s true, setting music for a good dinner party is a science! I loved reading these professional suggestions.

I’m usually not too excited when there are pieces of fruit in my dinner, but this grilled salmon with avocado & blood oranges looks pretty enticing.

These healthy chocolate cookies seem perfect to try out soon.

Also, I finally know what to make for next year’s valentine’s: a beer cake!

I love to snack on dates, and this recipe – calling for tea-soaking and mascarpone – sounds delicious.

This spring, I’m planning to make ravioli (or caramelle) again. This recipe involving parmesan broth and burrata literally makes my mouth water.

Have a wonderful weekend!
