De Passiebloem (the Passionflower)
About this Cook
Born and raised in Philly,love brought me to the Netherlands. My husband and I work together and have two wonderful daughters. I'm half Italian, and travel to Italy every year! I love (nordic)walking, bellydancing, and riding my bike everywhere, even grocery shopping.
My favorite things to cook
Family style meals, and easy, relaxed entertaining. Anything Italian of course, and American cuisine when I get homesick! I love to bake, cakes and muffins are a big hit in our house.Pumpkin pies from scratch, no canned pumpkin here in the stores!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A few traditional Dutch winter favorites, like snert(a green pea soup full of vegetables and pork)and stamppotten(the Dutch add all kinds of vegetables to mashed potatoes).My applesauce cake is a standard, and crumbles don't get a chance to cool before being devoured!
My cooking triumphs
Empty plates and happy faces just about every day.
My cooking tragedies
Undercooked pot roasts and turkeys on holidays, when everyone is hungry and waiting at the table....
