Fried onion rings, it a true classic! I think almost every restaurant serves them and most people are obsessed with it. I know these aren't the healthiest food on earth, but sometimes it has to be "it's treat yourself" time!
With this simple recipe you will be able to make these in just a half an hour for your guests, family or just for yourself ;)

I know I need a lot of practice when it comes to drawing. I need the most practice in drawing people's faces, especially the hair. That's in my opinion one of the hardest part of the drawing. Sometimes the hair looks like tencacles from an octopus, or can look like drowned cat's fur.
That's why I decided to make a practice-drawing for the hair. I've grabbed the newest ELLE Holland wich is full of christmas articles. Perfect to find some beautiful hair examples.

Everybody has some days they want to eat the sweetest food of all. Just a bunch of comfort food. One of my favorite comfortfood dishes are these lovely cupcakes. The cake is a little bit cinnamon flavoured (what else during this season ?) and has small pieces of soft dates. Also, I love to add some spices to the dough. The cream is a rich buttery cream, sweetened with caramel. Wich also gives the cream a light brown color. Perfect for fall !

Oh my.. The last weeks made an extremely big impact to me. Those weeks has been wonderful, sad, painful, stressful and great at the same time. There are so many new things in my personal life, but also a few people who left. While I'm writing this I have mixed feelings. Just wow. But there's something I want to apologize for: the fact I haven't written an article in a quite long time. I am so sorry.

A crazy combination, right ? Mushroom risotto combined with cinnamon. But don't get scared, I promise the cinnamon adds only a small and thin layer of a beautiful autumnal flavour. It gives a great uniqueness to the dish.
Also, using three kinds of carrots, wich is optional ofcourse, makes this dish even more interesting. I've used the normal ones, the ones wich are purple and ones wich are bright yellow. And as replacement for the meat I've added chuncky bits of eggplant. These bits of eggplant will be cooked all dente, so they will have a texture that is comparable with chicken meat.
The third adjustment I made in this classical dish is that in stead of white wine I've used sherry. The sherry adds a deep flavour and a red/brown colour to the rice.

Sigh, I. love. autumn. I know i'm a stereotype by saying on every begin of a new season how much I love it, but it's true. There are so many people who disagree with me, saying thing like: 'ugh, there's so much rain' and 'ugh, it's still dark when I have to get up in the morning, I wish for the summer'.
Don't get me wrong, summer, winter and spring are also all wonderful seasons, but they just miss something. Something the autumn is full with. What that "something" is, I still don't know. That's why I thought of making a short list of reasons why I love autumn would be a great way to express the way I feel about this majestic season.

A perfect autumn and healthy dish, seems like a good combination. This beautiful season offers a lot of wonderful vegetables, like carrots, pumpkin and eggplants. Only by thinking of these ingredients I get a lot of new ideas for new recipes with dark and intense flavours or colours. Yes, I absolutely love autumn.
Now the second "point" of the dish: being healthy. Thinking about that I immediately think of low-carb, salt free and fat-free. Is it possible to combine these two points?
