Kerryann’s Turkish-style couscous

What a great couscous this is with a spicy twist.

Indian-spiced potatoes with chicken thighs / poppadoms fest

The Indian-spiced potatoes with chicken thighs were delicious. Though, most proud we were of the poppadoms freshly made by our new colleague Joep! Since last week we have an extra chef in the BUX kitchen, as our company is growing and growing, we have reached the amount of 60 persons! A bit to many if…

The Vegan Power Bowl

Bocconcini-stuffed meatballs with tomato sauce

This recipe is fun to make, kids will love to help out here!

Check it out. 😉 -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 1 tablespoon milk ½ cup…

Mixed berry filo millefeuille

Baking the filo millefeuille was easier then I thought it would be. As I had to make dessert for many, a made a huge one instead of cutting it all in rectangles. The mascarpone with the yoghurt, double cream, lemon and icing sugar is just divine. Instead of the pistachios we used shaved almonds ;-),…

Salmon en croute / potato gratin / french bean salad

Next-level steak & onion sandwich

A lot of the Buxters are always very happy when this dish is served for lunch. Instead of white onions I like to use the red ones and I do sprinkle a bit of balsamic vinegar over them before they go into the oven. Because of the quantities we cook for, it’s easier to use…

CHOCOLATE PEANUT SLICE !

Now, making dessert in the BUX office is a big thing. Thursday dessert day is the favorite day of many BUXsters, so no pressure for me cooking that day 😉 This week I decided to make this great recipe. I went completely over the top by adding more and more ingredients to the dish. I…

Mushroom bourguignon

Croquembouche

Dulce de leche filling & chocolate sauce This Croquembouche didn’t really work out the way it was planned. As one of my colleagues said: a D.I.Y. dessert! As my buns turned out fine, the dulce de leche was not what it supposed to be like. I will definitely try this another time, and boil the…
