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…

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…

Quinoa and haloumi spring salad

A great combination with the Lamb and feta meatball flatbreads. My colleagues at BUX munched their way through this healthy lunch, some of them even came back for thirds… We did skip the haloumi in this recipe. The reason why was because we just did not order it. So improvising is a great thing, skipping…

Chicken Teriyaki

We are so lucky with our food supplier “de Kweker“, the chicken thigh fillets were superb again today. The meat was so tender. I am sure that the marinate made it deliciously soft as well, but you do need good quality chicken for this recipe. Make sure you let the liquid boil down to a…

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Stilton Soup

The original ingredients of this recipe consist of mainly broccoli and Stilton. Just because our grocery supplier didn’t have enough broccoli in stock, we opted for cauliflower. Also, we changed the dried thyme for dried Italian herbs, which worked out really well. This soup is quite filling, but absolutely gorgeous. It’s great to add this…

Pecan and pretzel salted caramel bars (tart)

Panic in the kitchen. Where are the pretzels gone? My colleague Chris could tell me with his eyes what happened. No further questions were needed. So, our salted caramel bars were made without pretzels, but instead we got some almond flakes out of the cupboard to use. This is very very delicious . Not very…

Sausage and spinach spaghetti

Another very “green” day in the BUX office. But I did promise meat and for sure the Buxers did get it. With green & red peppers instead of the sausage the vegetarian option was created, so that I kept all of these food lovers happy. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 300g spaghetti (or other pasta) 1…

Spinach and lemon baguette

Today was another vegetarian day for the Buxers…although some of them sneaked a little anchovies into the salad ;-). I did promise some meat for tomorrow. But, no complaints: next to the pea, courgette & parmesan soup, this lunch was in perfect balance. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 6) 1 large crusty baguette 200g baby spinach 200ml…

Pea, courgette and parmesan soup

This is an incredible tasty soup. The white pepper gives this dish a big kick, you will find yourself full of energy afterwards. Green makes and tastes good. A great spring dish! We added some homemade croutons to the soup to give it a bit of a crunch. Mmm -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 6) 1½ tbsp…
