Spanish week!

Yes! BUX was launched in Spain today, and of course we also did celebrate that a little bit in the BUX kitchen. A good way of celebrating is a good meal to share. So a huge pan of Paella was prepared this morning, and completely gone by the strike of 1 o’clock. Some of our…

Parsnip and caramelised onion soup

“A forgotten vegetable”, as one of my colleagues called the parsnip. Much more often used in England then the Netherlands I would say. I love roasted parsnips. The next time I will try to roast them first together with the onions. I will let you know how that worked out. This is a beautiful silky…

Red Prawn and Pineapple Curry

Hearing or seeing the word pineapple always makes me think of party and sunshine, don’t ask me why! This dish was meant to be made with the mango fruit, but for some reason our delivery of mango’s went wrong. Lucky enough we had plenty supply of pineapple. The curry was deliciously spicy and sweet. My…

Not So Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert Day! Haha, Nigella says it herself in the Method, the color of the cupcakes turn out not to be so red after all! But they are velvet, for sure. We had some little meringue toppings left so that’s what we opted for, instead of chocolate sprinkles or red sugar. They taste delicious. I…

Praised Chicken

Great Nigella Lawson recipe! Love it. After a rather large and heavy lunch yesterday we needed something light and comforting together. For the big eaters we served the soup with rice, for the conscious one with a cheeky little piece of bread & butter. It probably won’t surprise you when I tell you that some…

Baked potato with rapid ragu & green bean salad

This rapid ragu is a Nigella Lawson recipe, the baked potato was my own idea to add. Together with the cold bean salad and almond shavings, this dish became more of an early dinner. 😉  -Enjoy- PS: I did make a vegetarian version as well. Just leave the pancetta and lamb out. The caramelized onions…

Raw snickers bar

Many people think snickers bars can be unhealthy. But when you eat these gorgeous homemade treats full of energy, that thought will drift away quickly. We did not only add dates to this recipe but many more dried fruits, like apricots, raisins and cranberries. For the puffed brown rice we used rice krispies. RAW is…

Tray-baked panzanella salad

From the lovely Francesca in the office I have learned that there are different kinds of panzanella in Italy. Her grandmother made it out of stale bread. You make the bread a little wet, rub some oval shaped tomatoes over it plus some oil, pepper & salt. She also made it very clear that you…

Quinoa-crusted veal schnitzel

The combination of Quinoa and schnitzel is quit nice actually. Just don’t forget to squeeze the lemon wedge over the veal, to give it that zing. Do serve this dish with the pea smash and close your eyes and taste the summer. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 2 eggs 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 teaspoon sea…
